In this interview, Robert discusses his distinctive Jazzmaster. "The extra pickup on that Jazzmaster is from a Woolworth's Top 20 guitar—my very first electric," he says. "I took it [the Woolworth guitar] in to record our first album, along with a little WEM combo amp. [Manager/producer] Chris Parry, who was paying for the record, said, 'You can't use that!' We went out and bought a Fender Jazzmaster, and I immediately had the Top 20 pickup installed into it, which really upset Chris. I played the entire Three Imaginary Boys album through a Top 20 pickup. It's a brilliant guitar, though I actually bought it because of how it looked."
