Showcased on ABC-TV's Fridays In Concert series (which was that network's answer to Don Kirshner's Rock Concert), this 1980 clip of Heart (supporting their recent Bebe Le Strange album, as well as its greatest hits compilation) shows Nancy playing a sunburst Gibson ES 335. Now, I have a question to ask---when was this ES 335 manufactured, when did Nancy start using it, what tracks or albums did she use it on and does she still have it? Given that Nancy auctioned off numerous guitars from the Eighties heyday of Heart a few years ago, I hope she does still have it. Howard Leese also played a ES 335, but his was a red finish rather than the sunburst shown here.
Nancy rarely plays a lot of hollowbody electrics. She does play Ovation hollow body guitars, but I have mostly seen her with a 63 Telecaster and a 65 Strat. If anyone has info please let me know.
