  1. Hey,

    Nice ear job here!
    Really nice!

    But i hear something different during some of these songs:

    *Don’t forget your hat
    Forget the “?”. For me its a Dano!

    *Miss you blues
    Slide: Dano!
    Rhythm: Pensa MK80 (Neck + Middle)

    *Seattle
    Totally Gretsch! I believe that was the 54’Strat 😀

    *Kingdom of Gold
    Richard with a Tele, maybe the Blonde 52.

    *Gator Blood
    For me its not a Strat, but i am not sure about the Dano!
    So, i go with the Dano.

    *Bluebird
    For me, its clear that was the 59’LP (or the 1984 Reissue) – Both pickups Out of Phase

    *Dream of the drowned submariner
    58’LP – Both pickups

    *Blood and water
    59’LP (or the 1984 Reissue) – Both pickups Out of Phase

    For the rest, for me its all correct!
    Cant wait to comment on ‘Tracker’, I’ve made my list! 🙂

    Best wishes!

  2. thanks for the input

    as usual, there are many extrapolations as we van’t be 100% sure, but some infos are provided by Glenn Saggers via GF’s site

    you are maybe right on most of what you say, except maybe the Pensa for rhyhtm on Miss you blues ?

    I’m not sure I will find the time for doing the Tracker list.

    At the beggining, the aim of these pages was to be wiki with several contributors, so if you want, feel free to ask to Ingo if you can add you ideas 🙂

    best
