Surreal timing of this thread, as Roy Clark appears to have passed away today:

The Variety article includes this video:

Same general performance, but this time with a Jaguar—what appears to be a gorgeous, textbook specimen, btw. I'm guessing it's CAR, given its ubiquity back then. This guy really dug the offsets. Such a cool thing to see all these decades later.

It's so strange to me that I spend so much time lusting over vintage-correct everything, down to the typefaces on the headstock detail, yet still find it odd to see a proper black and video from the era when these things were actually brand new instruments with no indie rock mythology to tease apart yet. I guess it's easy to subconsciously blur the definition of "vintage" so it sits awkwardly between guys like Roy Clark plucking away in the mid-60's, Sonic Youth screaming over jangly chords in the mid-80's and MBV blasting out hyperdistorted drone notes in the early 90's.

Man that's too bad. R.I.P

But I could swear it's a Burgundy Mist Metallic
