In an interview with European guitar builder Paul Guy on Kenny's first European tour, Kenny was given this guitar at the conclusion of the interview as a gift from Paul. The guitar was originally built for Buddy Guy, but Paul never got the chance to give it to him so instead he chose to give it to KWS. Kenny was speechless, and felt as though he couldn't simply take the guitar, so they agreed on a $10 exchange. Kenny used this guitar to record “Blue On Black” and took the instrument around the world on the Trouble Is… tour. It has an ebony board, jumbo frets, a hip shot low E tuner, a one-of-a-kind experimental overdrive designed by Roger Mayer incorporated into the tone control and Lipstick pickups.
