Is there a larger version of this anywhere?

Thu Aug 31, 2006 6:22 pm

I just saw this one. I didn't know there were any others of him with this guitar than the couple that have been kicking around. This is mirrored. Is there a better, larger version kicking around?

Its from a photo shoot for the Stuck on You single. In fact, this picture is used on the cover of Disc 1 of the Essential 60s masters set.

IIRC, one of the recent Joe Tunzi photojournals has this image.

When would that shoot likely have taken place? The guitar in it is (I believe) his Isana that he had while in Germany. He supposedly gave that guitar away to two kids on a scoot seeking an autograph

I think the shoot was done in March of 1960 when he returned to the states. I know the liner notes to Disc 1 say something of the effect that pictures used on this disc are from an exclusive photo session for his first post-army single. Perhaps, someone else can provide an exact date.

Jim, I really have enjoyed reading the info contained on your page for Scotty Moore, especially all the guitars used by Scotty and Elvis.

Do you think you can add a page decribing the pedals Scotty uses with his Blues Cube 30? Adding the settings would be even better!! I have a Blues Cube 60 and these are sweet amps that are now no longer made.

Hi Mike,
Thanks. i'm always striving to get the most accurate info about the guitars I can. Glad you like it.
As for the pedals, you mean his Classic 30? I don't have a page specifically for that but this should give you the info you need.

He doesn't use TU12 tuner anymore though since I bought him a TU2 for his birthday a few years ago. Just wish I could sell him on the idea of using the power adaptor and daisy chaining them to elminate the batteries. "Too many wires" he says.

Brian might be of help here, but my guess is Germany, mid-to-late 1959, perhaps June. It's definitely not from March 1960.

Yes, I meant the classic 30 - I got it mixed up with mind. The Boss TU-2 pedal is absolutely fantastic, glad you got it for Scotty. While I don't Mr. Moore personally, please send him a fellow guitarist regards. I still study his licks all the time and am trying to master "Mystery Train."

Does Scotty have a favorite song that he played on with Elvis and/or produced?

That seem more in jive with what I've been told about the guitar from Red and Lamar, via Marty

Not sure about a favorite of his that he played but he's said several times his favorite that Elvis sand was "Don't". The easiest one he said he ever played was "Don't Be Cruel" where all he had to do was the intro and the chord at the end.

You have a Classic 60? The first time I saw Scotty perform he used a rented Classic 60. It was at a bike rally in Laughlin, NV . We got out just before the cops locked down the town. There was a big shootout in one of the casino's between rival bike gangs. A few people got killed.

Looks like I was wrong on the photo. I wonder when he had time to take these in Germany.

Anyhow, I have a Roland Blues Cube 60, but my buddy has the classic 50. Both are great amps, but the Roland is a solid state that sounds as good as a tube.

Funny story about NV!

Yeah, but what about the show? :lol:

..aside from that Mrs. Lincoln...

The show was great. He played with the Mike Eldred Trio. Mike is a friend of his and I knew Mike from the NAMM shows. He was the head of Fender's Custom Shop at the time and we had previously got into an online discussion (argument) about the pickups in Scotty's original L5, which in a sense was the beginnings of research for the website. I had never seen Scotty play and when he told me in January they'd be playing together a few of us decided to hook up, fly out to Vegas and catch the show. They rocked! The rest of the trio consists of the rhythm section from the Blasters, John Bazz and Jerry Angel.

Very cool, James. Thank you.

did you find it yet?

Excellent Elvisgirl!
Now the question is, pre Army release or Post Army release?
The hair looks brown, undyed. How soon after his discharge di he dye his hair black again?

Mon Sep 11, 2006 12:21 pm

Have you ever considered this picture could have been taken during his Army Period. Maybe it was taken during that one recording session in 1959. I remember a Christmas Album that has a picture like that on the cover only with a different shirt.

Mon Sep 11, 2006 12:31 pm

Here are some more...

Leroy, it's unlikely Elvis posed for these at the recording session as he didn't even change out of uniform to sing the songs.

What christmas album release is that one that's pictured ?

Mon Sep 11, 2006 1:02 pm

I have looked it up. The Christmas Album was released in December 1958. You could be right about the recording session. But I'm still sure these are "In-Army" pictures.

Mon Sep 11, 2006 3:06 pm

Thanks for the added pictures Leroy!

Mon Sep 11, 2006 3:14 pm

In the LAST shot of Leroy's pics,
is that the same shirt he wore in Jailhouse Rock???

Pages 284, 286 and 287 of Elvis a Celebration:

1959 PUBLICITY On this page [284] and the two overleaf, [286 & 287] another studio photo session staged during the time Elvis spent in the army.

But how can this be when the Christmas album came out in 1958.

It goes on to explain the colonels arguemnt towards the army in that it would be in the armys best interests to let Elvis have these photo shoots in Germany as it was a good advert for the army as well as for Elvis.

I'm still unconvinced that these session shoots are fom this time frame due to the enormous quiff Elvis has managed to build up. There's no way the army regs come close to allowing that. This is reminisent of the quiff he had for the Sinatra special after the army, but Elvis still has that pre army youthfulness in his face on these shots and I'd be inclined to opt for 1958 just prior to induction. That would explain the christmas album as well. I just dont recall Elvis having his hair like that though.

Yes, when I said "pre Army release" I meant pror to his release from the Army. The phot that I posted was either taken while in the army in Germany or soon after his return. The subsequent photos you posted all look similar in time frame and if the color is correct his hair is not yet re dyed black
