In Jack Bruce’s (Cream bassist) 1998 instructional film titled “The Cream of Cream” Gary appeared as a guest guitarist, and perhaps as a nod to Clapton picked up an unusual instrument for him – a Gibson SG. The film features interviews with Jack, and separate segments during which the bend composed of Jack, Moore, and Gary Husband performed some of Cream’s best known songs. Gary’s guitar was most likely a 1961 Gibson SG, or more precisely a Les Paul – since the “SG” branding wasn’t introduced until 1963. It featured cherry red finish, and was most likely originally equipped with the sideways vibrola tremolo since the screw holes are still visible behind the newly fitted stop-tail bridge.
