Yeah, you're right. Everybody knows Blackie. I heard about Brownie, but can't recall which one it is.
It'll always remain a mystery to me, why he's now playing the signature strat with those crappy noiseless pickups.
That's the sound I'm associating with an accountant playing guitar in his time off. Clapton's a humbucker man.
As you mention the 335, it's used on one of my favorite tracks with EC, when he performed "Yer Blues" with the Dirty Mac.
