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.


Testament’s Alex Skolnick

For “More Than Meets the Eye” (a fitting song for a player that does more than just sweep arpeggios), Skolnick dazzled with his signature ESP LTD AS-1FR FM that has a set-neck construction at 24.75" scale, mahogany body with a flame maple top, rosewood fingerboard, and high-end components that include Grover tuners, Dunlop Straplocks. The LTD AS-1FR FM is outfitted with a Seymour Duncan SH-1 neck humbucker and a TB-4 Bridge humbucker.
