Kashmir - Les Paul or Danelectro?


Recommended Posts

I've never played a Danelectro so I can't make a comparison there. I understand why Jimmy played WS/BMS on the Danelectro, but I have always wondered if he played Kashmir on it as a matter of convenience to go straight into Kashmir (tuning) rather than because it was the best guitar to play it on?

Having played it many times on both, the Dano definitely has a tone that gives the song a more Zeppelinesque edge. Empirically it just feels right. The first time I brought the Dano to rehearsal and we did Kashmir, it was just "Oh yesss! THAT'S the ticket!".

I'm no guitar slinger by any measure, I can play a few here and there..mostly the acoustic tunes which suits me perfect.

For me, the "holy grail" of affordable Zeppelin axes is the 59 Dano. It would be a stellar gem on my wall, especially if ol' Pagey brandished it with his ink.

No Page ink, but it definitely makes the wall!
