Anyone know anything about the Crestwood Astral Guitar currently in the novelties room at TMR.  It has been set up to demo the bumble buzz petal.  Kind of a rare guitar.  Sort of wondering if it might have been Jack's from the WS days.

Jack did use the guitar in The White Stripes and used it to play songs like "Let's Build a Home" and "I Fought Piranhas." He used it as an open E tune I think so he could use it as a slide guitar.

I'd have to see a pic of the actual guitar sitting at Third Man to know if it was it...

If any one goes by the store in Nashville soon, please ask the question.  I did not even think to ask.

another reason (as if I needed another) to make the Nashville schlep. I love the sound of the strange axe.

Daru Jones just posted a picture of himself at TMR by the Wonder Cabintet display.  On the left you can see the Crestwood Astral.  It does not have the pick guard, but I still wonder.....
