Combine a few tried-and-true guitars, basses, and amps with several dozen pedals, and you’re on the right path to the British pop-rockers’ unique sound.

Russell Lissack is a fan of Fender guitars and this ’03 Tele was purchased with his record advance when the band was first signed. He swapped out the original bridge pickup for a Seymour Duncan single-coil and uses Ernie Ball Super Slinky .009–.042 strings on all his guitars.

Special thanks to Leif Bodnarchuk for taking us through this complex rig.
