What kind of Guitar does Little Roy Lewis Play?


k-zoo sport

It is an AJ. In fact, there are only Gibsons in the band.

 

I think Gibson gives them to him -- at least the use to. In any case, he has played them ever since they were re-introduced. The first one he had had a hole in it after about a year -- from playing ware[biggrin].

 

Let's pick,

Hi Tom,

 

In fact I do. I have both of those. My Sport Model is an earlier model and doesn't have "Sport Model" written in the headstock like yours. MIne is from 1938. I'd like to sell it in fact. I also have a KM-11 like the one in your pic. It sounds fantastic!

Hi K-zoo,

 

I corrected a typo above. Little Roy I am pretty sure only uses AJs in his shows because of an endorsement deal. I have talked to him a bit on the subject -- he is very easy to talk to. He collects instruments -- especially old Kay basses -- and he said he has several 50s Martins.

 

Best,

BTW, we have several old Zoos from that period and also a Gibson L-00 3/4 -- the same form factor as the Sport but X-braced.

 

Here is a picture. I have been playing the KG-14 a lot lately -- I love its tone.
