Robinson also owns a Zemaitis metal front guitar. “This was another Japanese one that they gave us,” Robinson’s tech says at (13:19). The guitar was untouched by the flood disaster that befell the Black Crowes during Hurricane Sandy. Much of the band’s gear was ruined, but “This, I just plugged it in. I cleaned everything off as fast as possible,” Robinson’s tech says (13:19). “This guy, I just wiped it off, plugged it in, and it worked. Don't ask me why. I didn't have to do anything. I didn't even change any of the pots. The guitar was just fine. I cleaned them out, but that was it. I didn't even need to do the fret board. Most of the guitars were in cases like this. They were completely submerged. I can't remember if this was in a different case or not, but for some reason it survived. We don't use it as much. I use it in a crew band [laughs] more. It has all the nice engraving on it too. They're great guitars.”more
