    It's been a few weeks now, but on November 9th I saw the Derek Trucks band in Charlotte, NC. I have seen him with Clapton and with the Allman's in August, both times he was playing his reissue. Now it seems he has taken the real deal out on the road with him. What a beautiful guitar...(here's a pic I took at the show)

    Yeah, I'm definitely going to go see him several more times(I hope), Warren Haynes and Govt Mule as well. That was an awesome experience- pretty much topped all else I have seen. Just a shame I couldn't catch one of the shows with Susan too- what a team!

    I read in one of the guitar mags a while back that a lot of his and his bands equipment got ripped off while they were touring. It included guitars, mics, amps, etc.

    I understand they did recover most , if not all of the gear. I think the rapidness of the request for help all over helped alot , Good thing he handnt actually lost a main guitar
