Here’s a cool video we just discovered.

Late last year, Brian Setzer visited Carter Vintage Guitars in Nashville and jammed out a sweet version of the standard “Sweet Lorraine” on this 1941 Gibson L-5.

According to the Carter Vintage Guitars site, this L-5 was formerly owned by legendary Nashville musician Hank Garland and more recently by producer/guitarist Steve Buckingham: “Garland performed with Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline, Moon Mullican, Brenda Lee, Roy Orbison, Patti Page and many others. Beyond the great history of this instrument, it’s a fine example of a 40’s L-5. In 1948 the guitar had a DeArmond pickup installed by Gibson.”

What else can we say? Enjoy.
