The guitars


Recommended Posts

From what I have read and picrtures I have seen I know that early on - including Steel Mill Bruce played a Les Paul and in 1972 or 1973? switched to the Telecaster .

Are there any  later, post Steel Mill shows (including ones on bootlegs)where he played a Les Paul  or any other model than the Telecaster?

Thanks for the info.

There are quite a few bootlegs of Steel Mill and other early bands that predate the Telecaster (technically Broadcaster, but just a technicality) so I would say, yeas there are.

Thanks, I did not express myself well nough. I know about those, I meant from the later periods - sorry for the misunderstanding.

I changed my original post.

He played with Southside and others for the Just Before The Dawn film premiere party and used a Les Paul.  That was only a couple of years back, if you look on Backstreets setlists its on there and loads of You Tube videos as well.

Good question! Self-confessed guitar nerd here, so I’ve looked into this before (although it was a while ago) 

There are instances of Bruce playing Fender Strats and Mustangs, but I’m unsure when these times were

We also see him using a ‘hockey stick’ Fender 12-string on the cover of Roxy ‘75

Then there are some random ones - a Danelectro ‘56 U2

And I remember he used a Les Paul for some film event or something in 2017, so he still clearly has a soft spot for them!
