In fact, they didn't only sit down with him; they quizzed him. The topic of the quiz? Vintage guitars, of course.
They asked him about the wood used on an original Gibson J-200, the pickup introduced by Gretsch in 1958, Paul McCartney's Beatles-era Epiphone Texan (which still turns up at his live shows), the creator of the first PAF humbucker, the pickups on a Gibson ES-330 and more.
See how he does, and, of course, find out how many of these questions you can answer yourself!
