Letterman gear: Friday night show

As Letterman taped two shows, the second to air Friday... And a friend of mine attended the taping... this is what she told me was used for the show to be aired on Friday.

Gear for 2nd taping, to be aired on Friday night's show: David Letterman: "Get On Your Boots" (song aired)
  • The Edge - 1966 blonde Fender Telecaster
  • Adam Clayton - Epiphone Rivoli bass (natural finish)
  • Larry Mullen Jr. - Using the silver sparkle Yamaha kit.

Similar to the kit used at the "We Are One show but instead of being a hydrid of Oak Custom and Absolute Maple ("We are One" show configuration below)

- Oak Custom (24") bass drum
- Oak Custom (16") floor tom
- Absolute Maple (14") rack tom

At Letterman, the drums were all Oak Custom (rack tom included)
- Oak Custom (24") bass drum
- Oak Custom (16") floor tom
- Oak Custom (14") rack tom

I'm pretty sure it was the natural finish Epiphone Rivoli.

My friend said: It was natural finish, hollow body-like a Casino...

... That sounds like the Rivoli to me.

Guess I will have to see the Friday show to be 100 (gazillion) % certain.

Well I trust your instincts then, I'm not very savvy with Gibsons.

Judging by this piccy of the performance taped for Friday:



Looks like the natural finish Epiphone Rivoli.
