The 1975’s Adam Hann
The lead guitarist for one of the U.K.’s hottest pop-rock bands uses an unlikely sonic tool—a Music Man John Petrucci Signature model. For some of the distinctive clean tones on the 1975’s new record, Hann used a Music Man John Petrucci his parents gave him when he was a teenager. “It’s got these two humbuckers in it,” he says, “but the out-of-phase position has both coils split, so you get like a single-coil out-of-phase on it.” As for the wild color scheme: “It’s this horrible maroon color and when it came to doing it live, the color was so bad that we ended up getting this white vinyl that we cut out and painstakingly stuck over the entire guitar. We then covered up the hardware with tape and threw a load of multicolored paint over it. Now it’s got this weird Jackson Pollock-esque look to it.”
