Was a second guitar overdubbed for texture on that track;?Yes. That's a Burns Artist guitar from the '60s with a tiny body. A friend was selling it. She didn't play anymore and I thought it was really neat. It was great for playing the James Bond stuff. It's got the original Burns pickups and was in really good condition. It had some cards, like the Ace of Spades, that someone had stuck on it. It looked like a really cool kid's guitar. So that was the whammy bar on that track in a couple of places. You can hear the noise of the springs kind of catching at the end. It's got a personality. It's important, sometimes, to have that. It just gives the song a little bit of character.' **This lot is subject to VAT of 20% on the hammer price
