  1. Hi,
    According to Guy Fletcher the lead guitar on “Behind with the rent” was Gretsch 6120 not Gibson ES-330. Also, I think it is Les Paul in Madame Geneva’s.

  2. Thanks for the info. As you can see, the page is still under construction, and I have not found time yet to search infos on GF site 🙂 (and I don’t want to visit Guy site untill I go to MK gig on 21/07, to not be spoiled about any info 🙂 )

    But on Mknews, on “Release page”, there’s some infos about gear used on SL, KTGC and GL.
    I guess it was provided by Chuck Ainlay, but I don’t know how accurate it is.

    Who can we trust ? Guy or Chuck ? I know that Guy was a lot implicated in KTGC production, but sometimes his memory is not very accurate, so…

    Jean-François
