A skilled trade would mean more to me than a guitar. Some of these guys think they're pretty cute because they can play a guitar, but singing blues and playing a guitar is like molding in a factory except that it's less dependable - Guitar Pete Franklin, from liner notes of "The Blues of Guitar Pete Franklin" Bluesville 1068, Indianapolis 1961

In that Bruynoghes photo, he appears to be plugged into a '30s Gibson eh-150 amp, as seen in the 1937 Gibson catalog.

For great material from Bill's later career, early '50s, I recommend the recordings he made for the French label Vogue. Those, and other good releases are mentioned here: http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=1530.msg11279#msg11279
