Check out the new issue of Guitar Aficionado (it’s the one with Clapton on the cover) for an interview, plus photos of eight of Brad’s classic guitars — including Les Pauls, Strats, Teles, Les Paul Juniors and more.
Here’s an excerpt from Brad’s interview in the January/February 2013 issue of Guitar Aficionado magazine:
Over the ensuing four decades, Whitford bought and sold more than a few instruments, and today his collection numbers around 60 or 70 pieces. “I know what I like, and that’s a Les Paul or a Stratocaster plugged into a 100-watt Marshall or into a newer amp inspired by a Marshall.” That would include models made by 3 Monkeys, the amp company in which Whitford is a partner. “That kind of setup has been my preference ever since I saw Jimmy Page with Led Zeppelin in 1968 at Frank Connelly’s Carousel Theater in Framingham, Massachusetts. So the majority of my guitars are Les Pauls and Strats.”
