I’ve always been intrigued by Jack White’s 1950′s Kay Hollowbody Archtop guitar that he covered in a paper bag. White uses this guitar when performing “Seven Nation Army” with The White Stripes.
It was covered in a paper bag to help to stop feedback though the f-holes in the hallowbody.
At some point on the Icky Thump tour most of the paper bag had fallen off and the f-holes were exposed. Also, part of the pickguard was cut off. Check it out…
According to White, he recieved the Kay guitar back in the day as payment for some upholstery work. He also used this guitar when he played “Seven Nation Army” in the movie “It Might Get Loud“.
