For those who saw the show, did you recognize the red Gibson 335-style guitar with the trapeze tailpiece that Bob played during the segment with the Fog group? I was thinking that it might have been the red one you sometimes see in the early 70's pictures and videos. It sounded great whatever it was, and Bob even threw in an impressive solo too while the band was trading leads.

I didn't see the video but, the red gibson Bob used in the early 70s was a 345, not a 335. The biggest difference between the 2 is the 345 has a 6 way rotary switch.
