|Front cover of "Banjo Mandolin Guitar" Magazine April 1962. A series of articles on Wes by Jack Duarte started in this issue and continued until May 1963.|
|Photograph published in B.M.G. Magazine in June 1965 to accompany an article written by Jack Duarte as a follow-up to his previous series of articles in 1962/63. Wes is playing a Gibson L7 fitted with Charlie Christian pickup. The photograph was taken by George Clinton, who also photographed Wes in Ike Isaacs' music room at that time. I once asked Ike who, of all the many guitar players from all over the world who had played in his music room would he most like to have back as a guest. To my delight he had no hesitation in saying "Wes Montgomery, without a doubt!" Ike can be briefly heard in conversation with Wes on the Jazz House CD "Body and Soul" (JHAS 604)|
|Note the change of guitar?
The Gibson L5 with DeArmond p/u belonged to Cedric West.
|Wes with Cedric's L5.
Cedric West was seen on UK TV on an almost daily basis in the 1960's playing, amongst others, the Gretsch White Falcon seen here or a Gibson 3 p/u Les Paul Custom SG.
Cedric sold the L5 to Dave Shakespeare who provided the picture.
