    Anybody have any deffinet Idea what he plays. I think the tone he get in the studio and live is huge ( his five not the older stuff with a fender)

    Some kind of yamaha right? at least it was 8 years ago when I got to see him play.

    I saw him a couple years ago in Chicago, but I was in a happy hour mood so all I remember was that he played a white fiver, not Fender, not boutique (coulda been Yamaha).

    He got his solo in a ragin' Cajun version of Johnny B. Goode... he tore it up of course.
