A Chicago bluesman from Louisiana, Buddy Guy was a young protegé of Muddy Waters during the South Side blues heyday of the 1950s, and has carried the torch for the blues ever since, through his collaborations with Junior Wells and his coronation as blues royalty by no less than Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Let's look at some of the gear and equipment that has been seen in Buddy Guy's guitar rig.
