Mike Keneally speaks

If you’ve read Pointy Guitar for any amount of time, you probably know that multi-instrumentalist/composer/visionary Mike Keneally is a house favorite. Mike has embarked on a tour with bassist Doug Lunn and drummer Gregg Bendian and spoke with Anil Prasad at Innerviews. As with any Keneally interview, the topics and references are wide and robust. Here he spotlights a favorite piece of gear:

The shining star is a 1988 Fender Clapton Stratocaster. I got it from Fender moments after the Frank Zappa tour ended in 1988. They brought it to me to check out while I was hanging out in the studio with XTC while they were recording Oranges and Lemons. The guitar just sings. It has a beautiful vocal-like quality to it and I’ve leaned on it heavily.
