EC: Beautiful. I had one of these in the Yardbirds, with a tortoiseshell effect scratchplate. It was a nostalgic buy, I got it for the look of the guitar as much as anything.
LD: Yes, Jazzmasters and Jaguars always had that funky look.
EC: Yes, yes...Beautiful shaped body design, just pure.
LD: This one's a particularly nice example. I seem to remember you got it just after the George Harrison Tour in Japan [November/December 1991].
The Yardbirds publicity postcard illustrated here shows Chris Dreja holding what appears to be Clapton's Jazzmaster.
