Did Gary Rossington have more than one old 'Burst?

    I've seen pictures from the old Skynyrd days where Gary was playing a Les Paul that looked different than his usual '59 LP "Bernice". It had more color and it never had a pickguard on it. These pictures were taken of the Rossington-Collins band in Syracuse, NY in 1980 on the same night. Notice that Gary is playing two different LP's? One has no pickguard and an exposed bridge pickup while the other one looks like Bernice. Does anybody have any info on this guitar?

    Not sure that's a burst as the binding looks a bit thick in the cut away. But the head stock looks small, maybe one of the 80 Ri batches they made.

    I love that strap !!!!!!!!

    Since this was Rossington-Collins, he may have carried a second LP for dropped D, specifically, "Don't Misunderstand Me". Was all the Skynrd stuff in standard?
