Warren Haynes Reveals Guitar He Would Save From A Burning Building

Warren Haynes

(Gibson) Warren Haynes recently shared his thoughts with Music Radar as part of the site's ongoing "10 Questions" feature. Asked which of his guitars he would save from a burning building, Haynes replied, "My '59 Les Paul. I think every '59 Les Paul is pretty great, but this particular one is exceptional. It has this unique vibrancy and unique tone. I've played a lot of them --and some amazing ones, obviously --but this one I'm very lucky to own."

Haynes also revealed that the oldest guitar in his collection is a 1929 Gibson acoustic. "I got it a couple of years ago," he said. "It's an archtop like the one Robert Johnson is holding in one of those photographs, but slightly different. It's like an L-1."

Asked what advice he would share with his younger self, if that were possible, the acclaimed guitarist said, "Don't eliminate any genre of music from your influences. I've always … kind of studied different types of music and I think that was a valuable lesson that I learned a long time ago…. [Also], tell your younger self not to be hung up on chops and techniques and learn how to say more with fewer notes." Read more here.
