Hey, wanna buy a guitar?

Legendary bluesman Bukka White struck up a transatlantic friendship with Newcastle photographer Keith Perry after Perry met and photographed him at a City Hall concert some 40 odd years ago. Just before Bukka died, he gifted the photographer his 1933 National Duolian Resonator guitar known as Hard Rock.

In March, the guitar is up for auction with estimates ranging from £80k to £120k. In an interview on Radio Newcastle, this afternoon between 4:00pm & 5:00pm, Keith Perry talks about the guitar and its history. The interview comes in at 35:56 mins.
