PRLog (Press Release) - Aug. 10, 2012 - Charleston, MO August 6, 2012:  Clifford Rolwing of CTR Marketing of Charleston, MO, announces the discovery of George Jones “First Guitar” hanging on a friend’s wall in the hills of West Kentucky.  George Jones in an interview for Country Weekly magazine in 1999 said of this guitar: “It was a brand new Gene Autry guitar with a horse and lariat on the front” George recalls.  “I took it home and it hardly ever left my hands.  Note by note, I learned to play it.  I’ve owned countless expensive guitars in my life, but none of them ever meant any more to me than that little Gene Autry model.”   He treasured the guitar so dearly, that he signed it on the back.

The guitar was a Gene Autry “Cowboy Guitar” built in the late thirties by the Harmond Company. It was given to him by his father and George learned to play and walked the streets of Beaumont, Texas during the depression,  playing for tips.  Soon his father had George playing and singing those streets for family income.  At 16, he ran away to Jasper, Texas, where he sang at a local radio station. He later worked the Honky Tonk Circuit of East Texas to hone his craft.  It all started with George Jones First Guitar!

Upon discovering the importance of a decorative guitar hanging on his friend’s wall, Clifford Rolwing arranged to purchase the guitar from his friend.  Clifford is now in negotiations with the Country Music Hall of Fame to display the guitar in the proper venue.  Clifford said “There is nothing that George Jones has ever owned in his life that is more significant to his becoming "The King of Country Music" than this Historic Guitar!  It shaped his destiny to become the most famous country singer in modern history.” Clifford offered to purchase the guitar but thought it best to think on it for an evening before making a cash offer.  “I thought on it all night and the following day, I made him an offer he couldn't refuse".  That was in Jun of 2012.

"I believe that it is of such great value that everyone should have the opportunity to view this piece of history before "The King" has past.” Clifford said.  The Country Music Hall of Fame would be the perfect venue to offer the public a true appreciation for the “King of Country Music.”  For more information regarding this guitar and its history call Bob Price at 866-742-2198 or visit http://www.GeorgeJonesFirstGuitar.com
