Johnny at the Crossroads

July 9, 2015 - I had the privilege of playing a original one of a kind "Crossroad" guitar. Crossroads being the place where famed blues guitarist "Robert Johnson" allegedly sold his soul to the devil...it was where HWY 61 and HWY 49 cross in Clarksdale Mississippi. The guitar is an original "Strung Junk" guitar built by Steve Kinney and is made with a HWY 61 roadsign on one side, and a HWY 49 roadsign on the other and uses vintage pickups and components. Beautiful, great action and easy to play...Steve also makes a variety of other guitars, including some of my favorite which are made from vinatge cerca 1925 gas cans used in Model T fords and others. Steve will be at this years Baja Blues Fest in Rosarito...
displaying his original guitars...be sure to check them out. Thanks Steve!
Here is a little info about Robert Johnson for the blues lay person ;) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Johnson
