Guitars
Guitar info from wikipedia
- Fender Telecaster – Lissack's main guitar; used in almost all live songs. An American Honey Blonde model, more commonly known as an American Ash Telecaster that features an array of stickers, including Pokémon and Disney characters. The strap is covered with countless badges, including the one that the Spanish band TvToys gave him on Bloc Party's last concert in Madrid.

- Fender Telecaster – White, white pickguard, maple fretboard, several Family Guy badges on strap.

- Fender Telecaster – White, mint green pickguard, rosewood fretboard. Probably a Fender 60's Classic Series Telecaster.

- Fender Telecaster Custom – Bubble-gum pink, as seen in the video for "Little Thoughts".

- Fender Telecaster Custom – Black, maple fretboard, 1 humbucker and 1 single coil bridge pickup, flashing LED lights on pickguard. Used on "Uniform" live, and seen in the Hunting for Witches video. Features the unusual modification of a children's toy fitted next to the guitar's pickups, which produces a series of futuristic sound effects when activated from a switch on the pickguard. These sounds are picked up by the guitar's humbuckers and are amplified as normal.

Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar

- Gibson Les Paul – Sunburst. Used in the studio for "Uniform". Not seen live.

Gibson 2014 Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar

- Epiphone SG – White, used earlier in the band's career.

- Fender Jaguar – Blue, tortoise shell pickguard, used earlier in the band's career.

Russell has a ton of pedals. We've seen photo's and he has a very large pedalboard. Note he doesn't use everyone of these pedals at the same time. He does use many at once though.
