Cage the Elephant’s Matt Schulz

Here he is in his signature onstage look—a Fender Mustang around his neck while he helps belt out the lyrics to their hits like “Cry Baby.” Schulz’s new-but-beat-up Mustang is completely stock aside from a mod where the bridge pickup is connected directly to the output. He opts for this live setup because the guitar’s switches often get in the way while he thrashes onstage and in the crowd. (When he’s in the studio, Shultz has his tech Jordan Powell rewire the guitar so he has all tonal options at his disposal.)
