    Paperback Writer. Sounds like a Lester. Great tone.

    I'm sure an LP would suit just fine, but I think it was an SG.

    While My Guitar Gently Weeps (yes, it's EC, but he insisted on putting some flanging on it to sound "Beatley").

    It is neither. It is an Epiphone Casino, according to Paul himself. When I saw him in 2010, he said that the guitar the tech just handed him is the one used on the recording. Then the band launched into PB Writer.

    I love the rosewood tele through the twin with tremelo on Dont Let Me Down

    Still amazing how well McCartney and Harrison meshed lines and tonessupporting Lennons great song when they seemed to be really getting frustrated with each other......
