What was the blonde thin line F hole Gibson guitar Eric Clapton played "Wee Wee Hours in "Hail, Hail Rock'n'Roll"? I've been told it was an L-5 CES, then a G350, then a .... it just goes on and on.

Clapton is always known these days as a Fender man but, back in the '60s, in the days of John Mayall and Cream, he played Gibsons almost exclusively.

Since posting the enquiry I have been told that the guitar Eric Clapton played in "HHR&R" was a 1957 Byrdland. The company later made a cheaper version, the ES-350 T. I would be happy to own either.

Probably the same Byrdland he played at George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh in 1971.

Re the Byrdland he played at CfB he said he acquired it because he'd seen a picture of Chuck Berry playing one on an album cover (or maybe a publicity photo) but he couldn't find one with P-90's like Berry's and had to settle for one with humbuckers.
