George ‘Buddy’ Guy has been playing Stratocasters from his 1960 breakthrough to his ‘90s renaissance and beyond. His own signature has a polka-dot finish because he promised his late mother that he’d buy her a polka-dot Cadillac when he was successful.
Mrs Guy is long gone, and Buddy’s not one for cars anyway. No, he loves guitars.
“You have to spend more time with that guitar than you do with your wife,” he says. “That's why I'm by myself now. My wife would tell me, ‘You're putting too much time into the guitar and ain't givin' me none.’ And I said: ‘You go, I'm keepin' my guitar.’”
