It looks like a heavily modified Junior, as the extra knobs are inline, and there does'nt seem to be any fingerboard binding. He also had a Flying V modded like a Junior, with a single P-90 and a wrap over tailpiece.

It's an Electra
LW endorsed Electra guitars in the late 70s /early 80s. There was even a Leslie West Model

Would you believe the guy on the left would outlive the guy on the right
They had a band together briefly in '79 called The Firm

And Leslie is still out there, bringing it. He's a lot thinner now.

Saw him in Florida back in the mid 90's opening up for Foghat. He was Great. It was an outside show at Club Levela or Spinnegers and didn't get to see Foghat, the old lady fired up a Doob and they escorted us out, hmmn :dude:

A friend had a tape of him opening for Humple Pie. Great plaing and sound. Too bad about what happened to Marriot (burned to death in fire)
