    Watched the video of Bowies Glastonbury show from way back on the BBC. Curious to know the make/model of guitar, red bound in white, maple neck, played by one of his guitarist on the show. Didn't see personnel credits. Anybody know?

    Was the guitarist Earl Slick in 2000, perhaps?

    I asked this question too.

    It was a Peavey special build for Earl Slick. Not a product you can buy.


    Pls that was some gig! What a band.

    Thanks guys, I wondered if it was Earl Slick.
    Scanning through photo posts it shows up as Framus Earl Slick Signature model. I guess it may be out of production by now. Framus still building guitars in Germany.
