Mike Gordon tweeted a photo that he said was from “Aspen 1988!”, which was presumably a reference to the show Phish played at the Aspen Mining Company on August 6, 1988. The picture doesn’t show us a whole lot, but the it gives us the basics. As always, if you have photos from any time in early Phish history that might be useful for gear-identification purposes, please send them my way by email or social media using the contacts at the right.
