    I’d guess a Harmony Stratotone.

    That's a good question

    When I saw LR live (with the Killer opening! some 20 years back) he had two bass players

    I was thinking that, but like they say in the NFL replays - there is just not enough evidence. Someone gave me a Stratotone once - it had been sanded down and no name was visible. I thought it was a junk guitar and did all kinds of horrible things to it.

    wow, that's cool. I would much rather see a group with two bass players than with two guitar players!

    I have no idea on the guitar, but I just want to say that Little Richard should be mentioned BEFORE so many other early rockers when assessing performance and talent.

    That man is/was amazing.

    i wish Little Richard and Jerry Lee could upload the contents of their brain into some kind of Rock & Roll Conservation Super Borg Hive Mind. because when they go, that's the last of them.

    it's very possible we would be posting to the Trombone Discussion Page Reissue were it not for their intervention in our shared history.
