I was reading a posting on Jason Isbell buying Ed King's Red Eye Les Paul. Low and behold, Jason mentions playing an Electra MPC LP Copy.


jasonisbellWhen I was 8 or 9 years old, my uncle Phil sat me down and taught me to play “Simple Man” on his MPC Electra Les Paul copy. Then he gave it to me. I learned to play on that guitar and I still have it.
Thanks to the family of Ed King and our dear friends @cartervintageguitars, I’m now the custodian of 9-0891: Red Eye. It’s the finest electric guitar I’ve ever played or heard, and it will be heard again, not locked away forever in a vault.
I’m infinitely grateful to the late Ed King and his family, and I’ll treat the guitar and his legacy with care.

Kinda neat - huh? :up:
