Elvis Presley... sporting a Gibson EDS-1275, not unlike the one made famous by Jimmy Page in live performances of Stairway to Heaven, but with double necks of 6 strings each? I don't get it... First, I'm shocked to see Elvis with the guitar made famous by JP, a full 8 years earlier, second I'm wondering why Elvis would need a second neck with 6 strings (not 12 like JP)...

Did Elvis use some altered tunings? Was he tuned to open G? Dropped D? Mastodon-esque tuning 2 whole steps down of CFA#D#GC ?http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif

More light needs to be shed on Elvis' low-tuned brutal death-core period.
