Watch: Booker ‘Bukka’ White’s 1933 National Duolian Resonator

Thanks to our friends at Gardiner Houlgate, we were able to put Bukka White's 'Hard Rock' National Duolian through its paces, ahead of their auction on 13 March.

Bukka White’s 1933 National Duolian resonator was described by BB King as a “holy relic” of the Delta blues. This historic guitar is up for auction on 13 March via Gardiner Houlgate in Corsham, Wiltshire. Here, we put it though its paces and get the backstory.
