Guitar Muse is featuring an interview with former Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Ed King. In addition to discussing his favorite touring partners and clamshell guitar picks, the co-author of “Sweet Home Alabama” covered the gear he used on that iconic song:
I used a ‘72 Stratocaster and a 50-watt Marshall turned all the way up. The pickups on that guitar were really bad and even when you turned everything up full, it didn’t really have any kind of natural crunch. It was really a good guitar for that song. But it was a lousy-playing guitar, and every time I hear my solo, I can hear myself fighting it.
