Quotations and trivia

"I use a Steve Klein guitar most of the time now. I got one three or four years ago, Steve brought six over to me and I got this one off him and it's an absolute killer. I guess with guitars you maybe get two or three out of however many you have that really cut it and really, since I actually played the Telecaster in The Police, this is the guitar I've used. The Klein is made of wood and Steve uses a very dense wood for the neck - I can't think what it's called, but it's almost like graphite. The whole thing is a warmer sound than a Steinberger, which I also really like and it jus sits very well, it's a fabulous guitar."

from "Guitarist" - August 1995 (with an interview that took place shortly after July 20, 1995)
