Nope. I'm guessing strats. But he does use a Gibson Melody Maker, I only know the guitars he uses live.

EDIT: And the Gibson he's using in that video is a Gibson ES-335.

he almost certainly used his Strat sig models. But he has over 200 guitars, so who knows. Maybe he used that Strat Monterey as well

He just may sway my decision between les paul & strat :cool: . I played my first electric in a store today. After being mesmerized by the lowww tension and easy fretting (so much nicer after playing acoustic), I noticed the les paul just didn't sit right on my lap and was heavy. I could get used to that kinda stuff though

According to an interview (possibly Rolling Stone?), he used his black CS strat for nearly all songs.

get a ES-335, they r amazing guitars but r very pricey. if u like that look, look into the ES-339 they are a lil smaller and from what i have heard they play pretty good and r a lil less pricey (not alot tho)

dude, if you are going to want an ES 335, get an epiphone elitist! They are better (in my experience) sounding, play the same if not better, and are a only a little over 1k

I have an ES 335 and i have to say it plays like a dream, sounds like a dream and is just overall a sexy instrument ;)
