What guitar is Duane using on the Final Note?

I am assuming the cover pic of Duane is taken at the Painter's Mill show. If so, the guitar he is pictured with looks like a goldtop. Maybe it is the lighting. He is playing straight it seems. In the booklet there is a pic of him playing slide and that guitar looks like a burst.

Wasn't he using the tobacco burst then?

The photo is not from the Painter's Mill Show. The guitar in the photo is the cherry burst. I assume he was playing the t-bac in October.

Duane played slide in standard on "Dreams", "Mountain Jam", and (I think) "Don't Keep Me Wonderin'". I don't think he added the SG until Spring 1971 or so.

Here's a color photo from the same show the cover photo was taken.

@steved the cover photo topic came up a few months ago, and I did some quick research

No that you mention it. Sheesh, I did read that. Things ain't like they used to be.

Thanks PCBob for your insight.

Play on Duane.
