br /> Speaking ahead of the release of the group's new album, Hexum said he has many different favourite Gibson electric guitars - including Les Pauls in particular.

Some of these could be appearing on the upcoming record Uplifter, which he described as a diverse collection of songs.

"The guitar solos are sick and I think me and [Tim] Mahoney really raised the bar in that department," Hexum commented.

He added that at the age of 38, he is still taking guitar lessons.

Hexum said this is because music is a "never-ending journey", which means that musicians can never stop learning new things.

The band's new album, which has been produced by Bob Rock, includes 12 new tracks and will be released next month.

Fans can currently get a sneak preview of the songs on the 311 MySpace page.
