"If I'm trying to evoke something from the Fifties, I'll use an old Gibson. They're quite tricky to play because I use fairly thick strings on them, so they're louder and fatter. But it means that when I go to bend a note, I'm not going to be able to do exactly what I want. It's pretty resistant. So I end up playing – or attempting to play – a little like T-Bone Walker would play, with that kind of sound."
