A few pedals, a pair of classic guitars, and a faithful recreation of a Princeton are all this Australian 6-stringer needs for his unique style of Delta blues.
Shortly before this interview, C.W. made the costly mistake of walking into Gruhn’s Guitars in Nashville. Although he walked out with a considerably lighter wallet, he had in hand this 1957 Grestch 6120. I’m sure the sight of this guitar would have made Chet Atkins’ fingers twitch uncontrollably. The 6120 came to him stock, but Stoneking replaced the original brass nut with a bone nut to help with tuning stability.
