‘She wanted it back so with the first lot of money we got from the label I bought the one that I play now. I found it by accident. I went into a bunch of shops around central London and saw the one I wanted in the corner. It was really beautiful but it was too expensive. It’s a 1934 National Trojan and it has a kind of wooden body but the resonator bit as well, which is unusual. I went up to this woman called Lucia above one of the shops in Denmark Street and she has this workshop. She told me it was one of her guitars she had restored but she had it in the shop with a markup price on it and she said she’d sell it to me direct. So she sold me this guitar she had restored. It was incredible. It’s from 1934 so for a guitar it is pretty old!’
