The Raitt Stuff

January 1, 2011

BONNIE RAITT’S WICKED SLIDE licks, soulful voice, awesome respect and command of the blues idiom, and nose for a great song have served her well for decades, and have helped her become a true guitar icon. Here is a high-cost/lowcost comparison that represents some of the gear in Raitt’s gig bag when she last appeared on our cover in July 1998. (All prices are street.)
