  • So Derek Trucks's SG.... (warning: big picture)

    is signed. Does anyone know who signed it?

    Sorry for huge picture, but this is the only one I can find that really shows the signatures. Look around the tailpiece.

    It's hard to make out the words...

    Looks like "of March" by the Trapese cover and "Family"?

    The swirls under the bridge look like someone was spinning the pen trying to make the ink start flowing... I could see this on a piece of paper, but on the top of the guitar?

    I bet that's not the only SG Derek has...

      I think it says "best luck from all of us in the Manson family"

        I know that was the guitar he played when I saw him over the summer, that's when I first noticed the signatures.

        In person it looks like it was refinished, too. Like the clear was put on with a brush almost.

          I think I read that he gets every musician he plays with that he respects to sign it. I'm sure they wear off because he plays the guitar and more signatures are added. I'd guess that there really is no way to know who's on it at any given time unless you see the guitar or ask Derek. The only thing I can read on that picture is "Family Man".

            Hubert Sumlin is one of them.

              Q. Do you have one guitar that's nearest and dearest to your heart?

              A. Yes. It's the guitar I play all the time. I have a lot of great signatures on it: Little Milton, Johnny Winter, Otis Rush, Clapton, Santana, Roy Haynes, Jimmy Cobb, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Les Paul. . .
              I am not stupid, I just don't type very well.

                He is the man.

                Undoubtedly one of the greats of this or any era, can play with anybody.

                  Yeah I agree.

                  Phenomenal live, if you ever get the chance to see him.

                  My favorite musician at the moment.
