    One of my favorite guitarists, here he is stretching out on a classic Yardbirds song:



    And here's the full documentary/concert video it came from, Emerald Aisles:

    Please somebody correct me where I'm wrong here, but didn't he take possession of a stolen '59 burst which actually belonged to Ronnie Montrose?
    Could not bring it back to America during tours because of this?
    Please somebody fill me on this.

    I've never heard of that. I know he bought Peter Green's Les Paul. Under whatever circumstances, I've forgotten, Peter offered to sell the guitar to Gary. Gary said he didn't have the money, and Peter told him, "Sell the guitar you have now, and use that to pay me". I forget what Gary said he had, but it apparently it wasn't as valuable as a late 50's Les Paul, so basically he got Greeny's guitar for a steal. I guess that was when Greeny was getting to the point where he didn't care about things like that anymore, "Oh, I've got a vintage Les Paul, better make sure I get top dollar for it" or whatever.

    Looks like Ronnie saw a picture of Gary with a Les Paul that he believed was his stolen one and unsuccessfully tried to get it back. 37 years after it was stolen.

    Gary in the late 80s (?) on kid’s TV with the Greeny Les Paul and others. Presenter Neil Buchanan had been a pro rock guitarist so was feigning a bit of naivety. Some serious hair cuts.
