Well this is the guitar that started the whole Blackbird Diaries story going over a year ago.  Dave Stewart was stuck in London because of the volcanic ash cloud from Iceland, and ended up buying this guitar, which was owned by Red River Dave, who also appeared in many films in the 1940’s as a yodelling and singing cowboy. This set Dave on the path of The Blackbird Diaries, and the rest, as they say is history.

Here’s a couple of pictures that Dave has posted on Twitter, along with some shoutouts of him explaining more about it, and “finger pickin” the guitar.
