In honor of his birthday, July 10, 1907, here I am playing Untrue Blues.

I just saw this pic for the first time recently, it's a beaut. I believe it's this early shot of BB King with a Tele.

I think you're right.

A shop owner of my local guitar center told me a story about BB King once. He (BB King) came to the center one day, with a complete entourage, and tried out some guitars. He played various brands and a telecaster too. Now a telecaster sounds totally different than a gibson 335. The guy told me he could hardly hear any difference in tone when BB played all those guitars. I guess in the end it's all in your fingers not in material.

Hey harry
Yes, that's BB King. It's a postcard my wife sent me when she was in Mississippi last year, hitting a few sites on the blues trail. I have a few of them I put up for the video. Somewhere I have a bunch of images I cut out of those big cardboard rectangles CDs used to come in of the Piedmont guys. The ones I used were just handy.
