Wonder what it is???

Postby 601blues » Wed Jul 16, 2008 2:25 pm

I was in Amory Mississippi yesterday, thats east delta country beautiful, I was doin a small gig at the city park, while I was waitin on the stage time I spotted a pawn shop across the street with guitars in the window,so I checked it out ....had a nice 175 and then I spotted this accoustic, all brown Mahongy, neck and body, very old, plain as could be but built very well, and playable, and has a very sweet blues tone to it, I picked it up for 50 bucks, no head stock markings on inside its stamped L-2277
its a true delta blues box!!

It looks like there might be a faint imprint of a flag-shaped nameplate on the headstock...can anybody make that out, or are my eyes playin' tricks on me....?

I wonder sometimes if there isn't some sort of "ghost guitar" that turns up from time to time, plays beyond all reasonable expectations but nobody knows where they come from :blink:
