In this picture you can see Hugh was playing his Epiphone ES-335 Pro Cherry with white pickguard during this gig @ the Music Box in Ibiza on the 12th August 2005; he used to play it a lot on gigs and videoclips (check out [You Don't Love Me](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSLiwzMNIZI) & [Sofa Song](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ipwSi6Zow8) music videos and you'll spot it) back in the early days of The Kooks.more
Ejstes and Fiske’s guitar parts were usually tracked directly into the “purple” workstation using a Line 6 POD-XT or a handful of pedals that included a ’60s Fuzz Face, an MXR Dyna Comp, a vintage CryBaby, and, most importantly, a late-’50s Klempt Echolette tape echo unit (which was used as a tube preamp even when the echo was bypassed). Several amps were also employed, including a vintage 50-watt Marshall with an 8x10 cab, a Vox AC30, and an ancient Hagstrom—all typically miked with a Sennheiser MD421. Ejstes played an Epiphone ES-335, and Fiske played a Fender Stratocaster assembled from early-’60s parts.
