Josh White's guitar
« on: December 23, 2007, 08:33:20 PM »
Anybody know what kind of guitar Josh White was playing in the '40's and '50's? There are some shots of him with a small Martin but there is a larger non Martin shaped, slotted head guitar that looks very cool. Never seen one like it. One o' you fellow obsessives must know.

He was best known for playing 00-21 and 00-45's. According to this web page, White also played custom Guild and Ovation ?Josh White? models.

Do you have a link to a photo of White with the guitar in question?
