Ry Ry Cooder Picture Cooder

Ry Cooder's main acoustic guitar these days, according to his guitar repairman Rick Turner, is a Gibson Roy Smeck model from the mid-30s. Frets were added to this guitar, which was originally designed for lap-style playing. Cooder still owns a 1950s Martin 000-18, which Turner believes he used to record the theme from Paris, Texas.

He doesn't use any picks and wears the (glass) slide on his little finger.
