I think most of us on this forum have a pretty good idea of the guitars you have used over the years (other than the tele on a early BBD video). Just wondering in the early days of BBD whether your record company/management tried to influence your choice of guitars. I ask this because I read a little while ago about Phil Manzanera being told to ditch his 335 in favour of a white strat (Mr Hendrix?) when he got the Roxy Music gig. I've also read others stories about certain guitars not being viewed as being sexy enough. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
