oh bitchin, ty, i thought it was some kinda peavy. you are better at google than i.
saw a pic of him w/ this on a tape i picked up the other day.

(tape sounds kinda like a bakersfield country rock sorta thing, or, closer to that anyway than his usual rockabilly stuff, digging it a lot.)

huh, it has a weird coil split feature that functions by rolling back the tone knob instead of those push/pull pots (tone at 10=single coil, roll back and at some point, 5 or 7 depending on the make i think, and it flips to humbucker). i would so love to play with one of these.

and some phase switching stuff in the circuit, too, but i've never messed with anything like that.

oh and there's a message board dedicated entirely to this guitar! http://www.t60mafia.com/ what a world.

Dude T-60's (and their bass brother the T-40) are super cool guitars, but they weigh like 8 billion pounds. They sound awesome tho.

This isn't actually my guitar pictured, but the one I have is identical. It was made in 1998, bought by me in 2006 and now collecting dust. Before I start shopping it around, I want to know exactly what to call it. Epiphone Les Paul Special Double Cutaway? Epiphone Special Double Cutaway? Who knows the proper model name? When I bought it, I just knew it by sight...not by name.

i think it's 'Les Paul Special Double Cutaway' but really i'm just bumping the thread so ppl who actual know Gibson/Epiphone might see it and confirm/deny.

if you 'bay it or craigslist it or whatever i'm sure as long as you've got all those things in there in some order ppl searching will find/recognize

four years pass...

I finally found this image again after 25 years and I'm still wondering what this Kevin Shields guitar is - I'm also wondering if it's what they used for "Cigarette in Your Bed"

It looks a lot like a washburn, honestly

Takamine. Verified with a photo from the loveless tour

Do you have a link to the photo? I've seen him playing another takamine around the same time, but it looked much thicker.

best guess is Hagstrom. Deluxe II maybe?

Yes! Probably something like that. The fender-shaped headstock threw me for a loop.

It's a pawshop special -- which doesn't make it a bad guitar necessarily -- I think it's more likely to be Japanese than European. A Teisco maybe?
