Gallery: Riot Fest 2019

Chicago’s three-day, punk-rock carnival was host to Slayer, Jawbreaker, Raconteurs, Patti Smith, Rise Against, Bob Mould, Rancid, Bikini Kill, Lucero, the Struts, and more. Here are our favorite guitar-related moments from the 15th annual gathering.


Slayer’s Gary Holt

Original member of Bay-area thrashers Exodus, Gary Holt took over guitar duties in 2011 for Jeff Hanneman before his untimely passing. A man of the V, his most recent signature with ESP took a more traditional approach with a Les Paul-style body that features a mahogany body with set-neck construction. The neck sports a thin-U profile and an ebony fretboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets.
