In February it will be five years since the great Gary Moore passed away. As part of their tribute issue Guitarist magazine have worked with Moore's long-time guitar tech and right-hand man Graham Lilley to produce a lovingly crafted close-up look at the blues legend's key guitars.
In this video Guitar Techniques editor Neville Marten - who interviewed, played with and generally hung out with Gary over the years - surveys four key instruments, showcasing them with the help of a Marshall 1974X amp and Moore's own Ibanez Tube Screamer, complete with the owner's original hand scrawled settings pointers.
Featured in this video, are...
- Collector's choice number 1 - 'Artist proof #3'
- Refinished '63 Fender Strat #L21725
- 1959 Gibson les Paul Junior #929342
- 1964 Gibson Firebird #153314
For much more detail on these guitars from Neville and Graham, as well as a previously unpublished interview with Gary Moore himself, pick up the current issue of Guitarist.
