Default Jack White at Glastonbury

I've just watched Jack White pull out what looks like an old Kay acoustic archtop with a humbucker stuck on it to play 7th Nation Army at Glastonbury!

Cool! Maybe my '62 - '65 Kay Mercury will go up in value.

This one? It's called his "Paper Bag" guitar because its got a paper bag glued to the front. Lot's of pictures of him with it. He must play it fairly frequently I guess.

Yes, that was the one! He left it on stage, plugged in and howling at the end of his set. It took the poor sound team ages to find where the feedback was coming from!

And he's had that guitar for a while. Here he is playing an incredible version of "Death Letter" from Glasto 2005.
