Used on the song "Hemispheres" ...I remember seeing them on the Permanent Waves tour, and he used this guitar when they played the title track. id you use basically the same setup on Hemispheres? All the same guitars, with the addition of a new Gibson ES-345 and a Roland GR-500 guitar synthesizer. I eventually gave the 345 to one of our road crew as a birthday gift and bought a black 78345 to replace it. For amps I used Hiwatt [21750 Main St., Matteson, IL 60443] tops and bottoms exclusively.more
This Guitar Player article states that Phillips used a Roland GR-500: "Following Wise After the Event, Phillips’ music moved into a much more personal and uncompromising space. The third reissue, 1984—originally released in 1981—saw a major directional shift, as the album comprised almost entirely electronic music performed on a Moog Polymoog and a Roland GR-500 guitar synth."more
