Yes that is a Modulus i think one of Bob's earlier models. There was on on ebay a year or 2 back that looked very similar to that one he's playing in the pic.

Thanks, Waldo-

but it seems slightly different in the video- the headstock, and the body grain under the bridge seem different than the pic. But i could just be the video. Weird that there aren't that many shots of that guitar in use. Granted, it's not as pretty as the Blackknife- but hey-

I think it is the same guitar, and I love that particular modulus a lot!

I remember being at MSG on 10/11/83 and just drooling over that thing. My last show before that was june 83 in Merriweather and he was still using the cowboy. There were three big news items on Fall '83 tour: 1) St. Stephen 2) Revolution (the first time they played it at MSG Brent came out for the Rev encore with a Bandanna wrapped around his head, it was great! 3) Bobby's new mystery axe!

Geoff Gould is seen holding this early Modulus guitar on page 218 of the GD Gear Book.
