Q: Your main guitar is the D-28 owned by Clarence White. TR: Yes [Serial No. 58957; Tony bought it from a guy named Joe Miller in Pasadena, CA in 1975 for $550] Q: Did you change the fingerboard to Gretsch's? TR: Clarence's father bought that guitar from McCabe's in Los Angeles for $35. That guitar did not have a fingerboard so his father asked McCabe to put one on and that was the Gretsch fingerboard. It had the fret slots already cut, so the scale is Gretsch's. It's a little bit shorter than the standard Martin's scale length but it does not make too much of a difference. The soundhole is larger. I hear so many opinions but I don't think it makes any difference as far as the sound is concerned.more
