Bkind Lemon Jefferson Stella guitar:
Like many other country blues and old time music enthusiasts, I have spent a good many hours studying rare, often out of focus black & white photos of musicians with their instruments in hand. I am sure most, if not all of us have wondered at the guitar that Blind Lemon Jefferson has in his lap in the one existing photograph of him. Is it a Stella? Is it a Washburn? We may never know the answer. Even if we could discern the maker of that instrument, it may have been just one of several instruments that Jefferson owned and played during his career. Or...the guitar in that photo may not have been Jefferson's own guitar!
