    Yep, he used it a ton when I saw him in October. The biggest memory of that concert, and four guitar friends who were there, but not with me all said the same thing, was when Dusty hit the open E during a lil talk break. Everybody felt that one in the chest no matter where you were...good times.

    There's a picture around somewhere of him playing a Squier Standard Tele live, one with a missing pickguard.

    Well he does profess to playing 7's. Not much to see.

    I saw this guitar in August. It was a wonderful day starting with sedation, a colonoscopy, a couple drinks, 3rd row Zed Zed, aaaaaand I don't remember much after that. 20190827_203054.jpg

    Hmmm

    I see a neck change along the line.

    Your pic the whole finish both guitar and neck match.

    The one I posted in the first post does not.

    And the Dusty photo I posted above your post does not match necks
    either.

    It's a Bolin guitar from John Bolin in Boise, ID. I know because I live in Boise and I've been to John's shop a few times while he's working on Billy's projects and seen what he does!

    It doesn't appear to be a Fender!

    That is not the same guitar.

    "Peeler" is one he mainly used around 2015, it was also featured on the PG
    Rig Rundown.

    The finish on it is a decal

    That was what ZZ was playing when I saw them in Oct in W. Palm Beach. The Rev makes any guitar sound great.

    Billy Gibbons has a bunch of one off style guitars. He has a different one every time I see him on Tv or whatever.

    He used to run through those JMP-1 preamps, with individual presets programmed for each guitar to be used and all to sound the same as his Pearly Gates LP. And he took his PA sound from an ISO cab offstage. Youtube has a review of his gear then, not sure what he is doing now.
