History Detectives | Josh White Guitar | PBS

Duration: 17:27
Program: History Detectives #611
Broadcast Date: Feb. 23, 2009

A Michigan man owns a Guild brand acoustic guitar that he thinks may have belonged to Josh White. Our contributor met White when he was a kid, and the guitar reminds him of a confidence White had shared with him: the Guild Company was talking to White about making a signature guitar built to his specifications and to be marketed under his name. Is this the guitar White had spoken of?
