Photo Outtakes: Guitar Tech Larry Cragg
posted by Jason Verlinde
Larry Cragg has a lot of amps. And guitars. He needs them, too. When he's not serving as Neil Young's guitar tech (not to mention Santana and other rock stars), he's busy running Vintage Instrument Rental, one of the few places in the world where musicians can rent the vintage guitars or amps of their dreams for a recording session or gig.
Brian Fisher chronicled the life of Cragg in Fretboard Journal #23, but, as always, a bunch of great photos were left on the cutting room floor due to space considerations. Here are some outtakes -- in this case taken by Cragg himself -- from one of the world's great guitar and amp collections. To read more about Cragg, you can order Fretboard Journal 23 here.
