The Bluesbox Collection

Mid 1930's Washburn Deluxe round hole arch top (by Regal)

Here is an interesting photo I happened across. That fellow on the right is Big Bill Broonzy, author of such blues classics as "Keys to the Highway" and "Outskirts of Town". Next to him is legendary blues pianist, Memphis Slim, and to the left is a little known guitar player named Honey Hill, who happens to be playing a mid-thirties Regal round hole archtop exactly like the one described here!

(My thanks to George Gruhn for helping me to identify this guitar.)
