Jazz Guitarist Charlie Christian

There is a great read on guitarist Charlie Christian,his life and equipment.It is over at site really has a wealth of info on jazz guitarist,in addition to lessons and jazz theory,a great site.
Charlie Christian was one of the first guitarists playing electric. He used the first electric guitar that was a commercial success, the Gibson ES150. This guitar together with the Gibson EH150 produced enough volume and sustain for single note lines to be heard in a big band, something that's hard to achieve with an acoustic guitar. Partially thanks to "modern" technique, Charlie Christian brought jazz guitar out of the rhythm section...
