Read the PuppetGov biography of Neil Young

“Neil Young is a collector of second-hand guitars, but in recording and performing, he frequently uses just a few instruments, as is explained by his longtime guitar technician Larry Cragg in the film Neil Young: Heart of Gold. They include:

  • 1953 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop. Nicknamed “Old Black,” this is Young’s primary electric guitar and is featured on Rust Never Sleeps and other albums. Old Black got its name from an amateur paintjob applied to the originally-gold body of the instrument, sometime before Neil acquired the guitar in the late 1960s.
  • Martin D-45. His primary steel-string acoustic guitar, used to write “Old Man” and many other songs.
  • Martin D-28. Nicknamed “Hank” after its previous owner, Hank Williams.”
