A Les PAul Triumph Reconding (1st Version from 1969)
I thought the LP Triumph was a bass; I've never seen a six-string version. What's a 'reconding'?
while we are on the subject, what guitar is he holding on the picture sleeve of what is life? ?????? ( beatle55 )
I believe that's a Byrdland - probably the same one Clapton played at the Concert for Bangladesh.
thanks mcarp555. that's the only picture I've seen of him with that guitar and I've always loved that picture. (beatle55).
I should mention there's a lot of debate about what Eric played, but the general consensus is the Gibson Byrdland. It looks a *lot* like the one George is playing on the sleeve, so it would be reasonable to assume it's the same guitar.
maybe eric stopped by the house to see pattie and grabbed the guitar for an excuse to be there. just a thought. ( beatle55 ).
