Duane Allman - The Telecaster Years - Ask Zac 107

April 17, 2020

Duane Allman wasn't always a Gibson/Marshall guy. In today's episode, we cover the era while he was with the Allman Joys, The Hourglass, and his much-celebrated session career in Muscle Shoals. During this era, he mainly played a Telecaster with a homemade fuzz unit attached to the instrument, or a Strat with a Fuzz Face through Fender amps. It is also during this time period that he saw Jesse Ed Davis playing slide with Taj Mahal, causing him to pursue slide with a vengeance.
