Footnotes

  • This was ordered directly from the Fritz Brothers workshop, after Gary had borrowed a similar model from his Henley neighbour, George Harrison. As he had used that guitar on one track on the 1989 'After The War' album, and if he was to play the track live, it was thought best to have his own example. It was used for some tracks on the 'After Hours' album, 1991/2.
