I was thinking the other day that I remembered seeing pics of him with a jumbo Guild.

Based on his belt buckle I'll bet the back of that guitar looks like garbage!! Poor Elvis.
The man was hard on his guitars. I remember reading a story of him launching a Gibson J200 into the crowd for some reason.

Man, wish I could find a framed pic of that. I wasn't a huge Elvis fan but he sure made his mark.
Richard, just do a search and you can find many choices to buy that photo - big, small, framed, whatever. It is very well known.

It's actually sort of a funny story how it happened:

But I can't find one with him holding a Guild acoustic. That's what I need for my "wall of fame" in my music room.

Oh, my bad, I thought you meant the Nixon photo!

I don't know what your computer capability is, but if you copy the photo posted above to your computer, you could certainly print it out on high quality photo paper. Or send the photo from your computer to your email and take it to a place like Staples or Kinkos. Or perhaps someone on LTG has a better idea.

The 1974 F-50 with S/N 96648 is in Graceland now (with upside down mounted TRC!). He first used her on May 27, 1976 at Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Indiana.

If any of you have seen the 2016 film 'Elvis & Nixon' starring Michael Shannon as Elvis and Kevin Spacey as Nixon you'll be asking questions about that belt buckle with the Presidential seal !!!
