When Duane Allman, the late lead guitarist of the Allman Brothers, played the iconic song “Layla,” his Les Paul Gold Top guitar licks were the highlight.

That guitar was not laid to rest after Allman died. In fact, it will be on stage at Tuesday night’s 50th Allman Brothers reunion at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Grant Blankenshop (@Grant_Blank_) of Georgia Public Broadcasting has the story.
