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.


Guided By Voices’ Doug Gillard

The band’s lead guitarist since 1997, Doug Gillard spends most of his time playing this 1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom with a mid-’70s DiMarzio Super 2 humbucker in the bridge and an unknown brand humbucker in the neck. He told us in our Rig Rundown that the guitar is strung with D'Addario XL .011–.052 strings.
