I Played the Derek Trucks SG Prototype #1 Today

Recommended Posts

Pretty cool from a historical point of view. Definitely one for the "list". My hands immediately started playing Allman Brothers songs. It was strung up with some pretty serious wires, probably 12's, and the action was set just a little higher than "normal". The finish was kind of an odd light walnut 'burst, with only the bevels being darker.

 

I had also always wondered what Derek had originally done to anchor the front of the Maestro cover. It seems he had a custom bracket made which Gibson has duplicated in fine fashion.

 

I don't generally have much to contribute to the SG forum, but this was just too cool not to share. I guess now I'm going to have to check out a production model.

I too was wondering how they fixed that cover in place.

Trucks Schmucks, do Gibson [ or anyone ] make a real live flexible Susan Tedeschi copy that I can keep in my cellar ?

 

A Hot chick that plays great guitar..........what's not to like ?

 

Well...D'Angelico does!

But, finding them, is another story...especially, the exact model

(NYSD-9) she plays

 

However, there are a lot of versions, of her other guitar, available...the

venerable "Telecaster!" [thumbup][biggrin]
