‘I also have a pair of nice Martins here, both with a personal story. I used the D-18 a lot with the Pretenders. It wasn’t actually mine at the time. I commented once to Chrissie Hynde in the studio how nice it was, and jokingly asked if I could have it. I didn’t think any more of it until I decided to leave the band, and she just said “It’s yours!” It’s 43 years old now, so it’s well matured. It’s fitted with a Mimesis soundhole pickup, which was the prototype of the Fishman Rare Earth, designed by Bill Puplett and Mike Vanden. Unlike the modern Rare Earth which runs on 9 volts, this is powered by just 3 volts, and to my ears it has a much better sound. Recording and sound engineers love the balance of this one.’
