My Copper Mountain is a great road instrument and with both pickups it can do a wide range of things. Easy to carry on a plane. I am really happy I bought it.

Hi Jeff. Yes Cage was in Ian and Sylvia's band the Great Speckled Bird and appeared regularly on a weekly TV Show with them. Check out their 1969 album called Great Speckled Bird.
