Thread Name: Lead Belly's autograph
Subject: RE: Lead Belly's autograph
I agree that provenance is critical. Is the seller reputable, and well known to you? Does her/his story about how s/he came to own the guitar seem credible? If you're interested, PM me and I will put you in direct touch with Kip Lornell, co-author with the late Charles Wolfe of the Lead Belly biography; if this instrument has surfaced before, he will likely know of it.
