Alabama Shakes

I have been ignoring this band for a while. Until tonight. I watched them perform You Ain’t Alone on an old episode of 120 Minutes.

What kind of SG is the lead singer using? It looks like a 61 SG reissue because of the small pick guard, but it is white.  And the guitar looks well worn (and loved). The creamy white pick up rings look really good too.

This song reminds me of Janis Joplin’s (Big Brother and the Holding Company) “Summertime.” Perhaps it isn’t exactly the same, but it has a similar feeling to me.

I’m curious if their other music has this same feeling.
