From a 2013 interview: "Ad Hoc: What’s your favorite piece of musical equipment, Neil? Does gear factor into your writing process at all? NH: Gotta say: it is my Gibson ES-135 electric guitar. The gear is a huge influence. I like for the recording studio to use me as an instrument rather than than the other way around." (http://adhoc.fm/post/royal-trux-interview/)more
My most recent acquisition. Picked it up at my local guitar store. I had been obsessing over owning one for quite some time and when I learned that it had just come in the day before, I just knew I had to take it home with me. I'm so glad I did. It rules so hard. Semi-hollow body + single-cut + P90's = perfect guitar tone for me. Prior to this, I had tried out a blueburst 137 Classic and it doesn't even compare to the 135. Mine is in black finish.
