    Is he too good to play a budget model?

    I thought that's what killed his career?

    He once owned a '58 that was stolen. I'm not sure a Squier would've filled the void, despite his namesake...though he had a cool St. Blues guitar as I recall.

    Even though he is probably remembered for playing Gibson guitars live, his main axe for recording was a 1960 Tele Custom. Not to mention the Nocaster.

    I've become as annoying as the threads themselves. Oh, the irony. :(

    I think he played an Esquier, isn't that like a Mexican squire?
