One Question Interviews: Frank Turner

Frank Turner

SPB: What guitar do you play and what do you like about it when performing solo, versus with a full band?

Turner: I play Martin D45 acoustic guitars live these days, I have four of them. They are spectacular instruments. I went through a lot of other types of guitar, many of them excellent (special shout out to Gibson Hummingbirds) but it's hard to find an acoustic that can handle the beating I give it during a full band show. The Martin stands up to me, so I love it. For solo shows I quite often use my ~Gibson 1957 Country & Western, but it's more of a home guitar than something for the road, as it's kind of an antique.
