New Bukka White book - "The Legend of Booker's Guitar"
« on: March 24, 2015, 12:27:00 PM »
Just a quick heads-up for those who may be interested in a new book about the legendary country blues singer/guitarist (and sometimes pianist  ;)) Bukka White.

The book is titled "The Legend of Booker's Guitar" and more information can be found here:

Thanks,

For any Weenie who would like to own a piece of history Bukka?s 1933 National is up for auction on 13th March. This will take place at UK guitar auctions in Bath.
It has a very reasonable reserve set at between ?80k to ?120k. See you all there.

Nice web presence for the auction with a lot of background and story:
https://guitar-auctions.co.uk/portfolio-post/booker-t-washington-white-a-1933-national-duolian-hard-rock-resonator-guitar/

Interested to see how much it goes for in the end.

Looking at the prices that David Gilmour's Christie's auctions is trying to achieve, I find the estimate to be quite optimistic (unless of course, a prominent celebrity guitar player millionaire wants a piece of Blues history). For comparison, Gilmour's "Black Strat" is on sale, with an estimate of $100k to $150k, and arguably this is a much more widely know legendary holy guitar grail than Bukka's old National.

Let's see how it goes...
