On His Gretsch Streamliner:
“I’d been in At the Drive In for about a year; I hadn’t played on previous records, and I was trying to capture what the previous records had, which was the humbucker sound and pretty in your face. I just happened to look at Gretsch and I saw this (Streamliner) guitar had just come out. I saw that first off it was not as deep (as his Electromatic) and it had the fixed bridge and the humbuckers, so I was like, ‘I definitely have to try this out.’ I am huge fan of there not being a strap on the back of the neck. I play kind of low, so I’m not a fan of the floppiness. So that brought me to it. I got this guitar and I immediately felt super comfortable. I had played the same guitar for 10 years and then tried this. The position of it and the neck feel — I quickly understood this guitar.”
