    I met him for a second when I was delivering a Duncan pickup to a 19 year old Viv Campbell backstage. Seemed nice, Viv definitely was.

    Clapton with Les Paul Custom, 1969

    If I understand the situation, the Harrison estate considered it a loan. I know Dani was unhappy that Delaney routed it for humbuckers.

    Clapton with Les Paul Custom, 1969

    Clapton played the Custom on Live Peace In Toronto. Harrison got on the Delaney tour bus with two cases. Clapton asked why. " I know that Delaney is going to ask me for a guitar, might as well be this."

    Can someone school me on Epiphones made (in the USA) by the Gibson Custom Shop?

    I was at NAMM the year they came out, Gibson's booth was a semi truck.. I was checking out the Revolution with the John and Yoko sharpie images, and a voice asked me to hold it up, and I was promptly blinded by a camera flash (it was dark in the truck). As my vision cleared I was chatting with...

    Anyone get a glimpse of these?

    To Gibson the $50k pricetag is worth it for the headlines alone. And they'll all sell.

    Anyone know much about this Dickey Betts goldtop

    8 saw the ABB in the early 90s, and DB gets that singing sound on a flattop too. It ain't the spear, it's the thrower.

    9 0910 Murphy Lab R9 into a 1967 Marshall Super Lead 100 Watt

    I loved the doubled part in the solo. Reminds me of meeting Derringer at NAMM. I'd got a couple of live CDs and DVD from him, and the next day I circled back with questions. Me: "What did you use as a doubler on the solos on Live At Cheney Hall?" RD: "There's no doubler I just played the...

    I'm digging a varitone on my ML Les Paul

    My stereo ES345 is my recording secret weapon . First 3 positions are great, and if you pile the gain on for position 6 with both pickups it'll stand in for an Octavia.

    Custom Shop 1968 Standard Goldtop Reissue

    I cannot speak for the reissues, but the original 68 a friend had bloomed from a toothpick at the nut to a tree trunk at the 12th fret.

    Does the year guitar was made matter?

    The feature set is the same for both years. If you have the choice of both, pick the 9ne that you like better,
