hey, i was wondering if the stairway of heaven recording is acoustic or not, everything i see lives shows its electric, but the actual main recording sounds acoustic.

Ibanez RGT42DX
Boss MT-2

Yeah, it was probably done on a steel string. It definitely sounds that way.

I'm sure I've seen Jimmy playing it on a steel string live before.
Yeah some of it is acoustic, then there's the clean electric, his Fender 12 string. The solo, if you don't already know, is the Tele into a Supro. What model Supro he actually used still remains a bit cloudy.
