Good news, folks: Guitar is alive and well! PG headed south to Atlanta for three days to celebrate performances (and gather guitar details) from Beck, Gary Clark Jr., Tame Impala, Tyler Childers, Incubus, the Struts, Cage the Elephant, Tash Sultana, and more!

Bad Books’ Kevin Devine

After years of doing their own thing (and doing it well), indie-folk rocker Kevin Devine joined back up with his buddies in Manchester Orchestra to revive Bad Books (with a new album due June 2019). While we can’t be certain (yet to see Devine play a Fender Coronado onstage), we’re quite sure this is Andy Hull’s Modern Player Coronado II spotlighted in our 2019 Rundown with Manchester Orchestra. (As described in the video, guitarist Robert McDowell explains that he and bandmate Andy Hull made traded instruments during rehearsals for A Black Mile to the Surface—in exchange, McDowell got Fender Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster.)
