    Dave Van Ronk Puttin' his F-50R Through Its Paces

    Here's a goody featuring Dave Van Ronk plucking on his F-50R.
    "Sunday Street" his own composition.
    A real honest musician.

    Looks like his F50r has a few cracks on the top, made to be played. Sounds exceedingly good though.

    You know, I feel a little foolish about owning five guitars, when Dave Van Ronk appears to be playing just that F50R everywhere. Seems as though he played it most of his performing life. Anyone know?

    He owned two and had been playing them since the mid 60's. Before that it was a Gibson J200 mostly.He was a good friend of Mark Dronge and check this out: https://www.namm.org/library/oral-hi...ew-mark-dronge
