Do you guys think it was stock or modded?
Seems like back then, well i guess his whole career really, everything was modded and improved in one way or another.
I almost find it hard to believe he was playing just a stock SG
And what about Jerry's les Paul jr.? the double cutaway that he was playing in that same time period?
Anyone have any info on that guitar, any mods or anything special he did to that one?
The les Paul junior I hear referenced on here is the double cutaway les Paul right?
Does anyone know exactly what tours he used it on? I know it was like 70-71 but I don't think he used it that many times.
I'm just wondering bc I have a LP DC and the thing fucking kicks ass. Thing was nice stock but after if turned it into a 'tiger Paul' lol the thing is my favorite guitar that I've ever played by a long shot.
It's a Les Paul Special (2 pups vs the Junior's 1), and yes it's double cut. I believe there is a pic from '68 where he plays a Jr., but the one you are referring to is likely the Special.
There are a number of guitars tightly packed into the period of 70-71, including the LP Special, the LP Deluxe, the Guild S-100, the Turner Peanut, the LP-SG, and a couple of strats and there isn't much word that circulates about modding done to any of them. I guess that would go for all the preceding LP's... the Starfire was apparently converted to low impedance, as were all the instruments during the Acid Test era, but there seems to be not much information about the period from there until about '69-70 when Alembic begins, and even then its foggy for the first couple of years.
