It is not clear if this guitar is ’57 or ’58; Buddy himself refers to it as ’57, while among the fans it’s widely known as ’58.
Buddy’s popularity diminished a bit in the late ’80s, his some of the more recent albums earned Buddy Grammy Awards, and revitalized his career.
As far as the rewards go, Buddy was introduced into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, received five Grammy awards total, 23 W. Handy Awards , Billboard Magazine’s prestigious Century Award, the title Greatest Living Electric Blues Guitarist, and the Congressional Medal of Arts awarded by the President. He bought it in Louisianne, and used on his very first single “Sit and Cry (the Blues)” released in 1957.
In the late ’60 Guy left Chess, and signed with Vanguard Records, after which he released a number of albums which made him popular.
He gathered a following among the rock ‘n’ roll fans, and even among several popular guitarists, such as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
The guitar was a semi-hollow goldtop (visually similar to the Gibson Les Paul Custom Florentine) equipped with a set of EMG pickups.
