The Ray Price Guitar

This is my rosewood Emmons P/P.

Ray Price guitarThis is my 1974 rosewood Emmons P/P. I’ve owned it for about 8 years or so, and I always called it Rosie, but now it has a new name. Mike Cass borrowed it a couple weeks ago to do a gig with Ray Price, so now it’s the Ray Price Guitar.

I was a Cherokee Cowboy in 1980 for a weekend, as a sub, but I don’t remember what guitar I used. Mike, who’s a real good Emmons mechanic, was kind enough to change a couple knee levers around, so it would be the same as my black Emmons, before he returned it to me. And he even put new strings on it. Well, those strings had been on there for over a year, and he needed to sound good with The Chief, right? I know he sounded great; Mike plays his ass off. He has a site here.
