PETE CARR IN MACON: courtesy of Capn Dean
Subject: [MFV] Historical Guitar
Below is (and attached) is a pic of me playing in Capricorn Studios about 1969. The guitar which I bought from Sylvan Wells when I was younger and still living in Port Orange (right south adjoining Daytona) has some great stories that go with it.
I just did a session with Paul Hornsby and he reminded me that when Duane first started playing Slide Guitar that he used my Tele (shown above) to use for slide playing for a while in our live gigs.
At first Paul thought his slide playing sounded terrible and it was but he was just learning.
So, this is the guitar that Duane learned to play slide on or one of the main ones anyway in the very beginning of his departure into the slide guitar realm.
Also when we were doing a gig in Jacksonville FL. one night Duane got into a “Who” mood and threw the guitar down on the floor and broke the neck right at the head stock. I took it back to Port Orange and my Dad glued it back together. He did a fine job. You can still see a hairline crack where the break was from Duane throwing it down on the floor.
This guitar might be worth some good money to some hard core big Duane Allman fan for historical value.
I also have a picture of Duane’s daughter, Galadrielle (That is a hard name for me to remember the spelling of) holding the guitar somewhere that I will post when I find it. I wouldn’t let of it go cheap though.
What do you think.

"I can tell you that the JOHN HAMMOND SESSIONS were held at the old Muscle Shoals Sound...which did not open until 1969. I used to drive Duane to FAME for his sessions...Duane lived at the Stokes Cottage on WILSON LAKE and Duane never ever had a car or "short" (as Duane would say) that I ever knew about...so I drove him to work most days...sometimes I'd stick around and sometimes I had other thangs to do...
I went to several drug stores with Duane in The Shoals and we'd ask the pharmacist if Duane could look through his empty bottles....and we'd sit on the floor and dig through the boxes and Duane would try out different bottles as a slide....he finally settled on the Coricidan(sp) bottle.
Duane also played a lap dobro on The COWBOY sessions.at MUSCLE SHOALS SOUND...the song was "Please Be With Me".
At that time I had the converted UPS truck that a cabinet maker had gotten hold of and put a bed in it and drawers...and all the comforts of home.
I remember parkin' that truck behind MSS while the COWBOY session was taking place...and Tommy and Scott would sit out in my truck and practice their parts...
On the track that Duane played Dobro on he was snortin' so much Coke...that if you listen real close to the track you might can hear him snifflin',,, or suckin' air up his nose to keep the coke drainage from come out of his nose and onto his face..his hands were busy playin'...so he had to suck it up...
I remember we were laughin' our asses off because you could hear him so loud on the track along with his dobro part...they may have doctored it out of the track...but it happened ...I was there.
I never ever saw Duane play Dobro lap style again....he sat down with it on his lap.... maybe all they had was a square neck Dobro at the studio at that time so Duane had to sit it on his lap.
