As a guitarist, you've gained quite a bit of respect and press from the more mainstream end of the guitar community. You're on your second signature model guitar, and I have to assume that would be a trip for any player.
It's definitely a trip! It's dorky too, because I'm a guitar dork as well, I really am. My signature model came out this week for Fender. It's a Jazzmaster, and I play it live. It's made in Mexico, and I'm not like superprecious about it. It works for me, it's what I like, and I'm not just slapping my name on something — I was involved with what it is. As a kid, you're like, "You don't get guitars named after you." But I guess you do in my case!
Will we ever see a signature pair of boots?

That's next, yeah! [Laughs] For sure! Suits and boots, man, that's what I'm talking about! That's my next venture!
Nick Cave once said he wears a suit to work like any other professional.
He and Tom Waits are the reasons I wear a suit. I like to get down to business as well.
