Q – Fabulous show last night at The Tin Angel. The sound [to me] was spot on and the crowd seemed very into the show.

I squinted but couldn’t tell what brands of acoustic guitars you were playing. What, exactly, were they?

A – Thanks. I enjoyed the night, too. My main acoustic (a koa Taylor k-22) was destroyed by British Midland/SAS airlines on my last tour so for these 4 dates I took out 2 guitars I normally reserve for recording. One is a Collings, from Austin, Texas, with a rosewood body, this is probably my best guitar, I bought it about 5 years ago. The other is a Mahogany Santa Cruz from California, which I bought when we were making Bad Vibes. Both, like nearly all my guitars, are Orchestral Model (small with thin waist).
