A LOT of people did that to their '50s LPs. Kinda discredits the "fatter is better" gang.I recall also with that Les Paul he bought at a music store in Memphis,
it also had the neck shaved down some too prior to him buying it.
I saw that tour, except Beck opened - I think it was a co-headliner thing, where they'd switch off. Also, Bernard Purdie on drums.all Strat when I saw him around 1975
Mahavisnhu Orchestra was the opener
It was in a place with horrible acoustics, and Mahavishnu Orchestra had a LOT of players. Sonic mush, we left after about 10 minutes.
Considering he's deaf as a post now, most likely.He gets a great sound out of "She's a Woman" -
there is drive and midrange there, a thickness without perceived distortion- playing dynamically, but at loud amp volume?
