Gene Winfield Rocks!

Winfield Rocks!
By Chris Murphy

In 2012, Gene Winfield told me he was interested in custom making a guitar. He sketched it out on a piece of paper and immediately I said I wanted one. Over a year later, this amazing creation, Winfield Guitar #1 arrived at my office, autographed #1 Gene Winfield. The biggest surprise is that this guitar had already been played by the legendary bluesman Jimmie Vaughn and was also singed by him.

This guitar will be on display at the Walk of Fame Legends of the Cruise presentation, June 10 6:30 pm in 10th St Place.

Classic Cars and Hot Rods have always gone hand in hand with rock and roll and this is proof!
