This picture, found on [this fan site](http://www.sydbarrettpinkfloyd.com/2012/11/SydBarrettMirroredEsquire.html), shows Syd Barrett holding his Fender Esquire. This guitar had mirrored discs taped on it, which was all the rage back in the 60's. According to Feel Numb [website](http://www.feelnumb.com/2010/12/16/jimmy-pages-tribute-to-syd-barrett-fender-esquire-with-mirrored-discs/), even Jimmy Page made a hommage to Syd Barrett with the mirrored discs thingy.more
"Dude knows his stuff. And his tone? Fantastic. Utilizing a host of pedals–including a silver box Klon Centaur and an Earthquaker Devices Rainbow Machine–and an older Tone King Meteor powered by a quartet of 6V6s, Benji culled some breath taking sounds out of his choice vintage guitars. He employed a 1951 two-pickup Fender Esquire, a quirky-cool late 50’s Guyatone LG-60 and a vintage Epiphone 12-string."more
"On the album, I have an old Gretsch 6120 that I do a lot of the rhythm tracks with. I also have a ‘51 Esquire that’s on there a lot. Right before the record started, I went through a bit of a Strat phase, and picked up a ‘71 Strat that’s great. There’s also a lot of Les Paul Junior on the record."more
