• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Don't recall seeing this guitar mentioned - though it may have been in the past. Ian played with The Alan Parsons Project and performed the solo at the end of Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights - I believe on an early 70s Custom. Anyone got pictures?

There's THIS on his page.

Arrived with a brain dead bridge pickup that he replaced from his own stash.

Ian Bairnson is a good guitarist. Always loved his work on the Wuthering Heights solo and with Pilot. Anyone remember Magic?
He also played Fender stuff and a Gibson EDS 1275.

Cool timing, just finished listening to every Pilot album 30 minutes ago. I don't think they ever recorded a bad song, great melodies and hooks, and Ian has awesome tone and is just a great player. Kate is awesome as well!
