    Robb Lawrence's "The Early Years Of The Les Paul Legacy 1915-1963" book has some info on it. It's a 1958 and I think Albert Lee still has it. If you can't find the book, PM me and give me an e-mail address and I can scan the pages and forward them to you.

    Disraeli Gears session in New York. I always heard that Strange Brew was the LPC straight trough the desk, no amp at all

    Also some people say a strat was used on the album

    I don't know if it is the same guitar, but he used a LPC with Delaney and Bonnie

    He actually had two. The one he bought in May of 1966 @ Manny's. It was used on Disraeli Gears and one that he traded a sunburst for to Paul Kossoff in 1969. It's the one without covers that he uses with Delaney & Bonnie and also in Derek & The Dominos.
    The Cream era one he gave to Albert Lee and Albert still owns it!

    Albert brought the Cream one to Gun Club one night, and I played it for a minute. Just a minute, but still...

    If I may, the first was probably bought in May of 1967, as Eric was still with Mayall in May of '66 and there's no evidence that he had been to America before Cream's first visit.

    I'm guessing this is it?

    Another question. Did Clapton use his LPC to record the Blind Faith album? Or was it the 335? Or the tele with a Strat neck?
