Joke post?

He plays only one electric guitar except in very rare exceptions - the Red Special that he built himself with his father.

Possible, but it would have been one of those rare exceptions, like playing the black Telecaster on the "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" solo.

Didn't mean to sound accusing, but like 80% of posts here are now joke posts it seams...

I think I remember him saying that he used Fenders in the early days as a back up incase he broke a string during a gig. He also used a fender on one of the very early video clips ("Liar" I think....)

He also had a Les Paul as backup in the early days - check photo section, too lazy to search...

I hear that black Telecaster was Roger's, though I'm not sure...

Washburn RR2V (Flying Vee - White). Brilliant video. Same director as AKOM.
