I first bought my Gibson ES- 335 guitar to use with my Condor Unit made by Hammond Organ. The Condor Unit made a guitar sound like a bassoon, oboe, Harpsichord, bass, and other instruments. The guitar had a special pickup for each string and a chord that plugged into the Condor Unit. I used that guitar on “Don’t Knock my Love by Wilson Pickett, Smiling Faces Sometimes by The Undisputed Truth, and Whatcha See is Whatcha Get by the Dramatics. Later when I stopped using the Condor Unit I took their pickup off the guitar. I also had removed the pickup covers on this guitar to get more treble.

  1. Hey Dennis, what guitar did you use to record “Scorpio” and “Sad Angel” circa 1971 – 1972 or so?

    I believe this was used on the Four Tops “Hey Man/We gotta get you a woman” from the Nature planned it album.

      I may have used it on that session. I donated that guitar and a Wah Wah pedal to the Motown Museum and set them up in front of the speaker where the guitar section sat. All the guitars and bass plugged into a box above that speaker and went directly to tape. We did not use amplifiers.
