Les Pauls are not made with a whammy bar in mind. They do not have the right bridge. You would need to modify the bridge and drill holes in the back of your LP to get a decent whammy bar fitted.

What guitar did Duane Allman play?

Duane started with a fender Stratocastor and then got a 1957 goldtop les paul. it was with this Gibson les paul that he also switched to Marshall amps. He then obtained a 1958 tobacco burst Les paul & a 1959 Cherry sunburst les paul. he still liked the sound in the gold top pick-ups best, but the feel of the later year Gibsons. So he switched out the pick-ups of the 1957 gold top & put them in the tobacco burst gibson. Today those 3 gibsons could fetch over a million dollars w/o the celebrety that Mr Allman would also bring them. I hope Gregg has them put away in a safe place. i would love to ask him about his legendary brother & those guitars.
