Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there...

Nope. The Jrs just had bridge pups.

The beginning you clearly see a neck pup.

Plus a different pickguard which you clearly see during Bobby's solo.

My guess, a Les Paul TV model:

In addition to my eyes in one of my GD books it states he had one.

Hey man, same here. It does look like it it from a film. No idea what, though. A friend sent me the link.

P.S. check your gmail...

exactly, but actually the Tv SPECIAL model, which is that body shape versus the regular les paul shape.

It's from "Closing Of The Fillmore West" the Dead are in the film playing Casey Jones and Johnny B Goode. The film was released in '72 but went unreleased on DVD untill the beginning of '09.

IMHO that piece of film actually comes from 5/29/71, given the Bill Graham intro which indicates the opening of a set. In 7/2/71 the Casey Jones comes near the end of the show.

I thought that too... but listen to the two solos, and compare to the video.

The Intro and the song are spliced together for the movie.
