A well-used thumb and an army of twin reverbs.
Toy and bass brother Tommy, both had 'magic thumbs' !!
Seeing them play in 1976 ( and hearing the same live versions of songs on 'Where We All Belong LP, at a live show) was just a mind blower!
Toy, Doug Gray, and that band were so powerful; they just cooked!
Toy just literally pulled the best soulful, crying tone out of his Les Paul. I wanted to be him in HS

Based on some pics I've seen of it, this is pretty much spot on to the one he had minus the PG


My guess is whoever stole it took it strait to a local pawn shop. I wonder if there were any distinguishing marks, SN's, etc. I'd guess, no.... otherwise it probably would've surfaced by now but who knows.

He's not using any pedals, is he? Just controlling the gain with the volume control and his touch.

I don’t recall seeing any pedals when I saw them in the early seventies. Loud, loud, loud cranked twins. Contrast his tone with Duane’s - very similar guitars except Duane is using cranked (or almost) 50 watt Marshalls. Both great, just a little different.

Damn they were just kids!
Seems like when I saw them in maybe '83 they were old and grizzled?
How could that be?
