Lot 7324: Red Gretsch Electromatic Bo Diddley Model 'cigar box' electric guitar, signed on the body in black felt tip, "From Bo Diddley, 06." In fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from REAL. Consignor notes that the signature was obtained in 2006 at the Showcase Music & Sound, while Diddley was playing at the Aladdin Theatre in Portland Oregon. Based on the homemade guitars Diddley fashioned from old cigar boxes, this striking instrument recalls the simplistic yet undeniable style of a true rock and roll originator. Oversized.
