Timewarp: 1993 Interview with Kevin Shields and J Mascis
Wednesday, 3 October 2012
As always, I'm late to the show, and just now found this interview in Guitarworld from 1993 where J and Kevin talk about their guitars, tunings and music. Great read. :)
J Mascis: I like the necks on older guitars. They've been worn. Somebody's played it. It's like a baseball glove which somebody has broken in for you or something. And even though the old stuff is getting more expensive, it still can be cheaper than buying some hideous modern Nuno guitar. Modern guitars are just shit. I can't understand why anyone would want one. And I don't understand why having a guitar that is real easy to play is considered a good thing. I always thought it was bad--you start playing too fast.
