Clarence Gatemouth Brown : During his career, he played a wide variety of guitars, including Gibson L-5s and Fender Telecasters, but his trademark guitar was a mid 1960s ‘non-reverse’ Gibson Firebird, customized with an embossed-leather cover featuring a rose and Gatemouth, amongst other designs.
@ last.fm : Frank Zappa named Brown as his all-time favorite guitarist. He is also considered as one of the first guitarists to use a capo in his guitar technique. Although well-known in the American South and Southwest, Brown had trouble reaching a national audience, and recorded for several different small labels in the early part of his career.
