James Bay's first ever guitar. He captions his Instagram photo, "#Tbt to the first guitar I ever bought. Hand painted when I was 14 and still hanging in my room at my parents house"
The body shape, pickups configuration, knobs, switch, and rosewood fingerboard match those of a Epiphone Les Paul Special II electric guitar. James Bay's is of course hand painted by him.
James talks about selling his Yamaha Pacifica to buy the Epiphone Les Paul Special II https://youtu.be/3DQJSkYl5rY?t=13m31s
