Steve Miller 1961 Les Paul T-Shirt


Steve Miller's 1961 Gibson Les Paul TV Special is a highly prized instrument that has been used on some of his most iconic recordings and performances. The guitar was originally painted a pale yellow that Gibson developed to appear white on black-and-white television. However, Miller had the guitar repainted with intricate psychedelic designs by surfboard artist Bob Cantrell in the late 1960s.

Miller used the guitar extensively throughout the 1970s, including on the albums Fly Like an Eagle and Book of Dreams. He also played it on many of his live performances during this period, including his appearance on the Don Kirschner's Rock Concert television show in 1973.

In 1998, Miller donated the guitar to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City as part of their "Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock and Roll" exhibition. The guitar is currently on display in the museum's musical instruments collection.

In 2016, it sold at auction for $1.3 million, making it one of the most expensive guitars ever sold. The guitar is a testament to Miller's creativity and his influence on rock music. It is a reminder of the power of music to connect people and to inspire creativity.

The guitar was a gift from his friend and mentor, Leslie West of the Vagrants and Mountain. West gave the guitar to Miller in 1967 or 1968, shortly after Miller had broken his own guitar. Miller was so grateful for the gift that he named the guitar "Miss Christine."

Miller has said that Miss Christine is "my favorite guitar of all time." He has played it on some of his most important recordings and performances, and it has helped to define his sound. The guitar is a reminder of Miller's early years as a musician, and it continues to inspire him today.

Returns & Exchanges

This isn't a problem. If you need to change size or colour or design, or just fancy a refund, its all cool. I can sort all of this out for you. 

When returning an item it must arrive with us in it’s original condition. Wearing it down the pub on a Friday night out, getting it covered in Guinness and setting light to it via a badly rolled reefer, then returning it on Monday, is understandable, but not allowed by the karma pixies who govern our lives. And we don't want to upset the karma pixies now, do we? 

If your item is in any way faulty then please contact me immediately, send a photo of the issue and I will get a replacement organised. You won't have to send it back to us. For clarity, the concept of faulty does not include stains from a lamb dhansak you have spilled down yourself after consuming 8 pints of lager.  

Before making a return, please email me with your order number, and what you want to happen - a refund, or a different size/colour/design. I can then make it happen because I am all powerful, can change my clothes in a phone box and can fire spider webs from places I didn't know I even had. Possibly.

You will always be dealing with me, Johnny, because DJTees is so small and niche that I do all admin. Don't worry, I don't bite, or at least not unless you are a sausage. I do bite sausages.

If you'd love a t-shirt but are totally skint, drop me a line and I'll see what I can do.  


 We print everything to order and don't hold any stock of anything. That would be mad. Almost all orders are printed within 2 or 3 working days (this doesn't include weekends and public holidays), occasionally as long as 4 days if we have run out of a size or colour t-shirt and stock is delayed in arriving.
