One Question Interviews: Low Culture

Chris Mason (Low Culture/Macho Boys – guitar)

SPB: What guitar do you play and how did choose it? 

Mason: A few years ago I bought a 1969 red Gibson SG and that's been my go-to ever since. It is far and away the most expensive piece of musical equipment I own, and I only bought it at the insistence of my wife. We were in a music store together around my birthday one year, and she could tell I was in love with it but apprehensive about spending the money. She basically said "We're not leaving until you buy it" -- so I did. I'm not really a "gear head" per se, but I love the way that guitar looks and sounds.
