Matt: When you head out on the road do you prefer to bring a truck load of guitars with you, or are you a one guitar at a time kind of guy? Stacey: In the studio I have a great arsenal. I’ve been buying vintage guitars for 15 years now, so you name it, I’ve got it. One of my recent purchases was a ’62 Gibson Hummingbird that I’m really loving at the moment. I also have a ‘70 Les Paul Gold Top, which was originally owned by the guitarist in Metal Church. I bought that from him, via a guitar shop in Seattle, back in about ’98. I think he was the only owner of the guitar, he had bought it as a kid, and it had appeared on a Metal Church album cover. A little bit of guitar trivia for you. I’ve got a ton of guitars in the studio right now. I don’t have anything crazy, like a ‘50s Les Paul Junior, nothing crazy like that. But I’ve got a lot of good ‘60s Fenders and a couple of ‘70s Les Pauls that are awesome. Anyway, that Gold Top was sitting in the studio on a guitar stand, and one of the guys tripped on a cable and knocked it over and broke the headstock off. I just got it fixed and I’ll get it back this week, I can’t wait. Jamie actually used that guitar in the “Flavor of the Week” video, and he uses it live as well. For me, I really like to use a ’62 Jazzmaster when I play live with Hi-Fi. I bought it years ago and routed it and put a humbucker in it. I’m a big fan of Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth and Kurt Cobain, and I kind of emulated their style and aesthetic early on when I was learning to play. So I have a lot of Mustangs, Jaguars and Jazzmasters and with the Jaguars, a couple of them I routed out and put humbuckers in there. I have a beautiful jazzmaster that I think is a ’65 that I use a lot. With Hi-Fi I use that Jazzmaster and a Les Paul that I really like as well.more
