Otis Rush, what guitars did he use?

I've seen pictures of him with a 335, a Strat and a Jaguar I think. That sounds like it could have been a 335 on the site but it could also have been something else. He's changed a lot.

When he orignally recorded that cut for Cobra Records (late 50's) he used a strat. He spent a lot of the 70's with the red 335 for a good 335 example, check out the album "So Many Roads." But then he seemed to revert to the strat. I do not beleive he was exactly brand loyal.

IMHO - that is a sorry version of the classic on his site. Listen to the Cobra version for the real angst and power that is missing from this one.

A nice red Epiphone Riviera from the mid-’60s through to the mid-’70s, at least. Sounded good, too!

Isn't this a Jag?

I backed him up a few times around town when I was younger.

It was that white Fender Jaguar and a Gibson or Guild amp that year or so. He also used Twins & Supers if it was provided for him.

WOW, do you perhaps have pics from it?

I know what all of you are saying about the Jags and 335s -- but the original deal was a strat.

Check out the Cobra sessions...

No other Strat sounds like the one he used on the Cobra sessions. That is the greatest I've ever heard.

One reason is that a lot of the Cobra sessions guitarwork is...
