Rock Hall Release Video About Duane Allman's 1959 Les Paul

09/25/2013
.
(Gibson) Duane Allman acquired his 1959 Cherry Sunburst Gibson Les Paul in the fall of 1970, after falling in love with the instrument while jamming with the band Stone Balloon in Daytona Beach. The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland have long had the guitar on display.

The instrument, along with another '59 Les Paul was loaned to the museum by Duane's daughter Galadrielle. Earlier this year the Gibson Custom Shop came out with a painstakingly recreated version of Duane Allman's 1959 Cherry Sunburst Guitar.

The Gibson Custom Shop visited the museum along with Lee Roy Parnell, who was able to determine that "this particular guitar was the one that Duane used most often to record and perform live."

Aside from working with The Allman Brothers Band, Duane was a sought after session musician. He can be heard on recordings by Aretha Franklin and Wilson Pickett, not to mention his work with Eric Clapton on Derek and the Dominos' Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.

The '59 Les Paul that's on display at the Rock Hall was used by Duane Allman on the classic Allman Brothers live album At Fillmore East, which contain lots of jams and the band's excellent version of "Statesboro Blues."

Check out avideo about the instrument made by the Rock Hall here.
