so while watching the superbowl halftime show last night i saw my new favorite guitar. it was tom petty's main backup guitarists, that deadly blue les paul (i am pretty sure thats what it is). I just am wondering is that actually what it is, if not can someone give me the details on it.
Oh, and I am guessing that is customed to high heaven with the paint job and such, where could a guy go to get that done?Thanks

I thought the same thing while watching, I didn't think it was a Les Paul. Anybody know what that guitar was? It was beautiful!

uhhhh he's talking about Tom Petty's backup guitarIST not backup guitar. Tom Petty started with a Rickenbacker and then switched to the tele. His backup guitarist had a blue Les Paul with like a racer stripe paint job and then switched to a dual-necked guitar.

Which I was actually about to start a thread on. Dual-necked guitar... cool stage idea or lame and expensive gimmick? Discuss.

dual necked guitars are only necessary if you can play very well and can make quick transitions from one neck to another
otherwise they're really just for show

he used one neck for one song then transitioned immediatly to another song in a different tuning, sounds like it was necessary to me (because of time issues, if he needed a guitar in a different tuning he coulda grabbed one, just not if they were only alotted 12 minutes)

The blue guitar that Mike Campbell was playing is a Dusenberg. It's actually the "Mike Campbell Signature Model".

Oh good call. I thought it was a Les Paul for some reason.

But yeah, I'll say this, it did seem like in this particular instance the dual neck was kind of necessary because of the quick transition between the second and third songs (which was definitely due to time constraints... they barely cleaned up the field in time for the 2nd half). I'm sure if they could've gotten away with it the whole band probably would've been pressured to play the same instruments for every song in the set to cut down time, but I guess that was unrealistic. American Girl is a LOT different from Running Down a Dream

Mike Campbell plays Deusenbergs.

See link above/google the company. Very quality. I want a starplayer.
