Gibson has made 3 of these guitars and Warren Haynes is on of the guys that has one. Does anybody know anything else about this guitar? Who are the other players? How did Warren get one?

Gov't Mule takes aim at the high and mighty By Steve Newton

Publish Date: 12-Oct-2006

Warren Haynes spends a large part of his time with a guitar in his
hands; for more than a decade he's been doing double duty with
southern-rock legends the Allman Brothers and blues-rock kings Gov't
Mule. So it's no surprise that the musician is pictured playing a
Gibson Les Paul in the booklet for the Mule's new CD, High & Mighty.
What does catch your eye about the instrument being plucked by
Haynes's meaty fingers is the headstock. Call me a hick from
Chilliwack, but I ain't never seen no 12-string Les Paul before.

"There's only three of those in the world," explains Haynes, on the
line from his band's management office in Manhattan. "They built one
for some rich businessman who had said price was no object, and then
they built one for me, and then I think Slash saw one of the two and
decided he wanted one, so now there's three."

Haynes used that ultrarare axe sparingly on High & Mighty because the
bulk of his band's material requires the fat tone of a regular Les
Paul. The new album is one of the group's heaviest, both musically and
lyrically; the rugged opener, "Mr. High & Mighty", wastes no time in
lambasting those who think they're somehow better than their fellow
man. "Mr. High and Mighty, who are your sights set on now?" bellows
Haynes, "With your fair-weather fortune and your gold sacred cow." It
actually sounds as if he could be attacking the sanctimonious jackass
in charge of his country.

"Someone asked me if it was about George W. Bush," notes the
long-haired rocker, "and I said, `not exclusively.' But regardless of
where you stand on some of these political issues, this is a very
important time. So everyone, starting with myself, should speak up."

High & Mighty isn't just confined to Iraq. "Like Flies" takes a shot
at people whose goal is fame for fame's sake, although Haynes wasn't
actually inspired by Paris Hilton's recent entry into the pop-star
world. "It's just referring to the dumbing-down of our culture," he
says. "I read somewhere where someone said that art is less important
today than it's ever been, and I think whoever said that was
right.…Now people are more interested in being famous, and whatever
they need to do to be famous is okay, including compromising their
integrity."

Integrity is one thing that Gov't Mule has shown in spades since its
formation in '94 as a power-trio offshoot of the Allman Brothers.
After a heart attack claimed Allmans/Mule member Allen Woody in 2000,
Haynes and drummer Matt Abts performed and recorded with over 30
bassists for the acclaimed, two-volume Deep End project; they weren't
in a rush to replace the revered Woody. Eventually, keyboardist Danny
Louis and bassist Andy Hess would lock in to form a formidable
quartet, one that's finally drawing raves from the mainstream press.
"[Gov't Mule's] dedication to craft is edifying, life-affirming, and
deeply satisfying," raved Entertainment Weekly in awarding the new CD
an A- rating. Billboard jumped on the Mule bandwagon as well: "High &
Mighty is a quantum leap for the band and will be remembered as its
Houses of the Holy." Indeed, a track like "Streamline Woman" brings to
mind the heavy riffing of Jimmy Page, but what does Haynes make of the
reference to Led Zeppelin's varied 1973 opus? "I'm a Zeppelin fan," he
states, "and I think Houses of the Holy was one of their best records,
so I'm proud for someone to make that comparison."

Gov't Mule hooked up with another Led Zep admirer, former Big Sugar
guitarist-vocalist Gordie Johnson, who coproduced, mixed, and
engineered High & Mighty. "We agree on what great music is and what
great music should sound like," notes Haynes, "and we have a lot of
common influences and tastes."

One of those influences may be Little Milton, the Mississippi blues
legend who passed away last year, and who High & Mighty is dedicated
to. "He was a really close friend," says Haynes, "and of course an
inspiration and an influence. We did a lot of stuff together through
the years, and he was just a beautiful human being and a great artist,
and we miss him a lot."

Gov't Mule plays the Commodore on Tuesday and Wednesday (October 17
and 18).

Saw this post and wanted to reply/update. Warren indeed does have several original {and reissue} Danelectro instruments. I gifted him a refinished white {with hot rod flames on the back} 1966 two pickup Silvertone/Danelectro guitar. Also gifted him a rare reissue "Jimmy Page" model in Burgandy Sunburst. Only 100 in that color were made. Woody was right there and playfully demanded I give HIM one too lol! Moments later I gave Woody a VERY rare original 1958 Danelectro lap steel which he was VERY happy with! I still sent him one of the reissues a few months later. Back to Warren/Dano's. He did end up with several very nice pieces from my personal collection. I had loaned him a few to record with and also for some photo sessions he was doing at the time for a book I was working on. Woody also contributed. When it came time to return the guitars {and a NICE 1958 6 string bass}, I could tell he was "dragging his feet" a bit. Ultimately he revealed he'd like to own all of them, so we cut a deal, simple as that. I'll try and post a few pics of those instruments. Hope that cleared up a few unanswered questions. I should tell the story of filling in as tech for Farmer one rainy night in Boston...
