Just found this clip from 2008. Reminds me of how he would end shows in โ€˜70 & โ€˜71.....

Notice that when he finishes playing he lets go of the steel, and it falls off the stage! (out of sight of the camera) Shocked I'm told that it fell about 6 ft and hit the pavement, on the corner of the guitar.

That sure sounds like A6 when he's hitting the open strings in the earlier moments...
Anyone know how he tuned the back neck at that time?

Youโ€™re so right. He never lost that fire, Mike.

With a chainsaw and a sledge hammer.

Haha, yes indeed Fred. ๐Ÿ˜…
My question is like asking about Evil Conival's preferred tire pressure, no doubt.

Its a killer clip, for obvious reasons. Just wondering what tuning he was using then.
