In a recent interview with Neville Marten for Guitarist, Lee Dickson said of this guitar "...that sunburst [Gibson ES-335TD] had the most incredible tone. He [Clapton] used it when he was looking for the particular textures and tones of the blues guitarsts that he was playing homage to on that tour..."
