Over dinner a friend and I were talking about Mustangs and couldn't think of many soloists or blues rockers who play them. I'd love to hear one used for that if you can hip me to some players...
Winter actually did play a Mustang, not a Duo Sonic. He modified it with a trapeze tailpiece and a 3-way switch on the lower horn. I believe he played it on Johnny Winter, The Progressive Blues Experiment, Second Winter, and some of Johnny Winter And....I think Johnny Winter played a DUO-SONIC (which is a lot like a mustang) live in the late 60's....never a big fan of mustangs.
I love that album, but was under the impression Rhino played a Strat into 100 watt Marshalls, both on the record and live. I could be wrong.Good classic Mustang tone all over the first Captain Beyond album.
I know he played a late-'50s Duo Sonic at his first solo studio session at Colombia. He got it at a relatives pawn shop or music store because he didn't have an electric guitar for the session, and it was cheap. I'm not sure about after that though, when he was in Butterfield, Electric Flag, and beyond. I've seen footage and pics of him playing that white Tele, his famous 'burst, a gold top, a Strat, and whatnot. Never a Mustang, but it's certainly possible.Mike bloomfield used one i think when he was with electric flag or something.
