Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue

Imagine it’s 1965, Chess Records, 2120 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL. The Howlin’ Wolf band have just walked into the recording studio to cut a few tracks and we get a phone call from Mr Burnett asking if we have a guitar he could use to record with! Alas, it’s not 1965 and we can all dream can’t we?

If we did get that call, this is the guitar we would have designed and given him, “The Wang Dang Doodle”. Inspiration came from the Valco, Supro labelled, Arlington Res-O-Glass, a forgotten gem from the early ‘60s and a brand that The Wolf played back in the day. If only we had been around in 1965! SR

"The Wang Dang Doodle"

Inspired By The Music Of Mr Chester Arthur "Howlin' Wolf" Burnett.

The Wolf Maybe Playing The Harp But
He Can’t Keep His Eyes Off “The Wang Dang Doodle”!
