He would usually play the first couple of songs with the polka dot V's, which as a photographer was always worrisome because we only get to shoot the first thing songs, and you'd obviously want to get a shot of him with the bulleye LP because thats the most iconic shot. Luckily for the 3rd song of his set everytime I saw him he'd switch back to the LP.
Still does sound like himself playing the V's, just as Jimi still sounded like Jimi on a V.
Thats one of the things that really seperates a great player from the rest. Its because their style and sound is in their hands more than their gear. If you can sound like yourself on any halfway decent guitar then you've really got something special.
