Badfinger rocking TWO Gibson SGs. They look like late 1960s SGs.

    Amazing how the lead guitar goes from very modulated chords, phaser like, to clear sustained lead. No pedal or footswitch visible. Must be a tech in the back playing with knobs.

    The guitar that Pete Ham is playing in that video is the '64 Standard he got from George Harrison, and was used extensively in the Revolver album by George and also played by John Lennon on the White album by the Beatles. It's a pretty well documented guitar and sold not long ago for over $500k.

    Yeah, Badfinger was my primary inspiration for buying a late '64/ early '65 Standard, and darned if it doesn't come really close to mimicking the sounds on "No Matter What" and "Day After Day". It's a great guitar.

    Or perhaps it's only the vocals that are live? Didn't notice any pilot lights on the amps, even though they have mics in front.

    Mike Lookinland looks spanking on the bass in that white suit.

    Very cool, love the Badfinger songs I have heard but never had albums.

    C'mon tell me that dude doesnt look like Bobby Brady.
