    I seem to recall him playing a Les Paul with a Floyd Rose tremolo.

    I'm assuming thats when he goes into the fetal position, sticks his thumb up his ass, and cries until you leave him alone

      I think during the Genesis days it was a late 60's Les Paul with mini humbuckers.

        Mostly IIRC a Fernandes LP style with FR, also a 57 LP and there's a sustainer guitar involved too, and he's an E bow user

          Which period of Hackett are you interested in? He's gone through quite a few guitars over the years. For example he's probably the only name user of the Ovation UK II electric guitar, playing one in the early '80s.

              It's a 71 that Steve bought brand new right after joining the band that year.
              (he also had a sunburst mini bucker LP around that same time.)

              In addition to the guitars already mentioned he also played a LP Custom early on & has a sweet 57 Gold Top as well.
