This a scanned Polaroid photo of Geoff Richardson, a British guitarist with the D.C area band Crank (Johnny Castle on bass). He's slingin' what I believe to be a '59 Darkburst Les Paul. The photo was taken at a D.C. area local high school concert in 1971 where they opened for the Ides of March ("Vehicle" fame). The first time I saw him with this guitar was in 1969. He usually plugged straight in to a Marshall 4-holer 100 watt half stack. Goes without saying his tone was killer. Crank had some original tunes but they also played a lot of covers by artists such as Bluesbreakers, Eric Clapton, Cream, The Who, Blodwyn Pig, etc.
