Used by Lee: 1990

  • 1990 -- EADGBE (Mildred Pierce)


  • SY performed "Mildred Pierce" twice in August 1990, for footage to be used in the music video. Since the song was in standard tuning, Lee just borrowed a guitar from the opening band, STP. One night he played this Duo-Sonic, the other night he played a Kramer Striker. The Mustang could potentially be his (though I've never seen him use it anywhere else), but the Kramer was almost certainly borrowed.
