Wilco’s Nels Cline Plays Duane Allman’s Guitar

During Wilco’s performance at the St. Augustine Amphitheater in St Augustine, FL last night, guitarist Nels Cline brought out Duane Allman’s ’57 gold-top Les Paul guitar for one of the band’s marquee tunes. Prior to the song “Impossible Germany,” Cline switched over to the famed guitar, which was loaned to him courtesy of The Allman Brothers Band Museum in Macon, GA.

Cline also performed several songs on the guitar last September during a few of Wilco’s performances on their Southeast run. He also guested with the Allman Brothers in March of this year during their annual run of shows at New York’s Beacon Theatre. Watch video of Cline playing Allman’s guitar last year in Atlanta below.

In other Wilco news, the band has also added a show on September 23 at the Grand Sierra Theatre in Reno, NV.
