Question submitted by: Dingaling

Ya know, if you look back on recent years, it's hard to think of a band that has been as unique as The White Stripes--the colours; the fact there are only two of you; etc. But what I find really neat is your tendency to use older and relatively obscure equipment, such as your 60s Airline guitar.

How important are these older instruments to the White Stripes, and would you ever consider using more popular guitars like Stratocasters, or, as I observed you play with Loretta Lynn, a Tele?

that was a '69 telecaster you saw me play with loretta. i have three guitars that i have used in the white stripes 99 percent of the time. and i dont really see a need to use any differen't ones yet. i've been given a lot of guitars over the years. but still only own a few. i don't like having a lot of guitars. that's not the point.
but to anwer a question, older is usually better. such as used harps, the stand up kind, are more expensive than brand new ones. go figure.
