Clarence’s brother Roland got me my job with Lester Flatt [of Flatt and Scruggs] when I was a kid. The Whites were like family, though I only met Clarence one time. After he was killed, his wife Susie moved back east, near Nashville. She was considering selling a ’54 Strat that had belonged to Clarence and asked if I would be interested. I had just gotten a job with Johnny Cash, so I was finally making a little bit of money. One of the pickups was missing because it was now in the Telecaster. I said, ‘I’ll take it. Is the pull-string here?’ I played [White’s B-Bender Tele], and I couldn’t believe what I was playing. She said, ‘That’s what you really came to see wasn’t it.’ I said, ‘Yes ma’am, it is.’ She said, ‘Well, I might consider selling.
