"Pete Townshend used a Fylde Ariel model small-bodied acoustic guitar in the studio and for solo performances. He began using this guitar in 1979 as his “on the road” guitar in place of his 1968 Gibson J-200. In the studio, he used it likely on Empty Glass, as well as Iron Man and Psychoderelict. He also used it on Driftin’ Blues in 1981, which appears on Another Scoop. In 2006 he used this guitar on Endless Wire. For 1996-era solo shows, he used this for solo acoustic numbers, such as I Am An Animal and A Friend is A Friend, fitted with a Fishman Acoustic Matrix pickup system. He continued to use it for solo appearances in 2006 with Rachel Fuller.more
