In this interview with James Bay, it is mentioned that Buzzfeed "invited the Hitchin-born singer (and his beautiful D'Angelico EX-59) to stop by our offices[...]". It can also be clearly seen in the photos and GIFs that accompany [the interview, found here](http://www.buzzfeed.com/kelleydunlap/james-bay-advice-for-guitar-beginners). His EX-59 looks to be a black finish with a rosewood fingerboard. James Bay offers the following advice: 1. Your fingers are going to hurt. 2. You’re going to get hand cramps. 3. Get used to tuning and restringing your guitar — you’re going to have to do it a lot. 4. You’re going to suck at first — embrace it. 5. Practice is more important than gear. 6. Play with more experienced guitarists. 7. There’s a reason electrical guitars are easier to play. 8. Artistic expression is more important than technical skills. 9. There are a lot of ways to learn; choose the one that’s right for you. 10. Practice, practice, practice! 11. Embrace all genres of music. 12. Patience is a virtue. 13. Guitars are not edible — no matter how delicious they may look. James Bay official Twitter page: https://twitter.com/JamesBayMusic/status/596321620257452033more
