One of the most interesting famous guitars of the late 60's was Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd's 1962 Fender Esquire guitar. He had put shiny silver film on the body and added silver metal disks that he would buff to a shine before every performance to reflect the light from the shows out into the auidance. A couple of my friends have made nice replicas of this guitar. The sad thing was Syd accidently left the guitar out on his porch one night while it rained and all the disks rusted and he soon lost interest in the guitar and traded it for a new black telecaster which he later hated! No one knows where the guitar is today.
Check this one out. I never seen this picture of John before. I'll have to see if I can find out what type of guitar that is. Looks like it might be a giant cigarbox type. Maybe they used a clothes box or a desk drawer for it.
