Didn’t know they played a Gretsch…

Surely we've discussed Calvin Newborn but this pic is just too cool.

Great pic. That looks like Pee Wee Crayton with the Tele.

402

Correct, sir.

Bob Weir... with a vintage 1957 Chet Jet! Super-cool!!!

Found on ebay. Not sure if this one has been posted already. 1945 post card of Red River Dave with his Synchromatic.

Thanks for the link, somehow I missed that thread!

Hard to top the Gretsch count (among others) in this one:

I saw that on FB the other day - wonder what brought it up. Anyway, pretty cool tune and the period video production is priceless.

Unknown guitarist (Carl Hogan maybe?) with Louis Jordan

Mundell Lowe

Wow, this appears to be another CS creation. No controls other than in the typical master vol position. Stack pot maybe? Some interesting details to be spotted in the video. That headstock plate looks thick. Look at the shadow it casts. Love Bill Frisell, love the song.

I learned a lot from this thread but three things stand out.

1) Little Richard knows how to play guitar or knows how to pose with a guitar.

2) Bobby Vee passed away.

3) Poison Ivy's name is Kristy Wallace.

I learned more but those three things stand out the most.

Don Deal with Hank Cochran playing a '58 6120.

I'm guessing this is a '59 6125 (21 frets & 2.75" body) with an added second pickup and with hot rod wiring -- you lose some sound with the extra pots unfortunately. Thanks for posting the clip, he's fairly new to me and incredible.

I guess that would fall into the Eagle with Falcon category?!
