Watch the Duane Allman online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Kings of Tone
Duane is best known for playing a 1958 Tobacco Sunburst Les Paul found for him by Billy Gibbons, legend has it. Duane actually started off playing Telecasters and Stratocasters through a Fender twin for his early session work. He switched to the Gibson when playing with the Allman Bros. because he liked Dickey Bett's thick warm sound. Duane also used a Cherry Gibson SG quite a bit. The main guitar on Eat a Peach and Live at The Filmore is said to be the Tobacco Les Paul.
