EC: This is one that I regret [selling] it's been well used.
KK: This is interesting, it has a Byrdland body with a 350 neck. The 350s were all laminated maple tops - this is actually a spruce top, which I've never seen [before] Gibson [would have said] we've got an order to fill, take that body, marry that neck, get it out.
EC: Well that gives it a little bit of added interest, it was used for the Blues Tour and for a couple of songs on From The Cradle... I remember a Ray Charles song called Lord Have Mercy [Sinner's Prayer], which I used that on.
MF: As well as others probably?
EC: Yes...from the same album.
KK: How do those P90 pickups respond on stage? Was this used much on stage, or mostly for recording?
EC: Pretty much the same. I just prefer the Alnicos, they're not quite so raw, a little more refined.
