This video was uploaded July 23, 2011 & Redeye wasn't released. As Sharky has stated MK burst indeed has the tag fade. MK burst is my all time favourite I wish Gibson would do a reissue of it :salude
Stoj, I was refering to Ed's original "Redeye"...:peace2

Here's another one of MK playing his '58. Good close-ups. Lord, that man can get a tone out of the neck pickup of a LP!

I'm always fascinated by the Jr./Special tailpiece. It's been on there as long as he'd had it. I wonder if it was swapped out at some point, or if someone at Gibson just put the wrong one on there. Probably the former.

I believe Mark has been touring with his '58 Burst since 1996. Haven't seen him play the '59 in public.. Think it's an R9 he uses as his backup these days :salude

The upload date is deceptive. The clip is from the Music for Montserrat concert on September 15, 1997. The guitar is definitely Mark's own '59 burst.
