A bona fide twang-guitar legend shares stories of his time with Clapton and gives an inside look at how he approaches his signature sound.

Albert Lee owns a lot of great guitars, including Don Everly’s 1958 Gibson J-200 in custom black and a 1958 Gibson Les Paul Custom (which was a gift from Eric Clapton), this EBMM signature model has been at his side for 25 years. It features a laminated maple top, Southern ash body, a Music Man vintage tremolo, maple neck with 25-1/2″ scale, and a 10" neck radius. It’s powered by a trio of custom Seymour Duncan pickups featuring the company’s Silent Circuit, which helps with hum. He strings them up with Ernie Ball Slinkys (.010–.013–.016–.026–.036–.046).
