    Wow, great pic - authenticity-value up under the moon. And a strong line-up for sure.
    This was after the 45 had new Grover-like tuners - something tells me they were more hip than white ovals back then - but before the guard came off.

    Can't imagine the threadhost doesn't appreciate this side-road.

    Welcome S_Joe

    Replacing the Kluson factory tuners with Grovers (or Schallers) was something nearly everyone did back then, for better or worse (usually worse). I recently put back the white button Klusons on my 1964 Epi Texan, after replacing them with Grovers 40 years ago. It seemed cool at the time.

    Another thing many people did back then was to rip out the neck pick-up on their Telecasters and stick in a Humbucker. I did it to my 1971 Tele, much to my regret years later.

    Not sure I have a suggestion for a nick-name, but Dono's rather new (approx 26 years old) Kelly seems to have earned some mojo, mojow.
    And it sounds good, , , actually very leitchseq.

    A guitar I'd really like to try, , , just as the purple-blue-moon Zemaitis, , , not to mention the old long gone cherry 45.
    Gotta wonder if that one is still alive somewhere.

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but speaking of Don's famous J-45, here it is in a picture I took on June 3, 1968 at a festival near Peterborough, Lincolnshire. Don's musical director John Cameron can be seen playing John Mayall's Hammond organ (Mayall was second on the bill). Harold McNair is on flute and Danny Thompson can be seen over Don's shoulder on double bass

    I don't know, I like it...sort of reminiscent of Donovan's Danny Ferrington dread.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Don calls his Ferrington "Kelly", so maybe we should come up with a name for the J-200?

    I saw Greenie with Danny and Jeremy in concert in 1970.....Mk 2 Fleetwood Mac at their best.....[thumbup]

    Peter played his black Strat, Danny played a Strat, Jeremy played slide on an ES335....



    Peter may have played the Strat on one or two songs in 1970 (it actually belonged to Jeremy Spencer, I believe) but he wasn't known as a Strat player per se. He also used a Fender Bass VI on the live extended versions of Rattlesnake Shake etc, but the Les Paul was far and away his main guitar.

    Also Jeremy's main guitar was a Gibson ES 175
