In the delta of the Mississippi River, where Robert Johnson was born, they said that if an aspiring bluesman waited by the side of a deserted country crossroads in the dark of a moonless night, then the Devil himself might come and tune his guitar, sealing a pact for the bluesman's soul and guaranteeing a lifetime of easy money, women, and fame. They said that Robert Johnson must have waited by the crossroads and gotten his guitar fine-tuned. Highway 61 intersects with Highway 49 aka the Crossroads.
The Highway 61 is a single cone resonator. It's a slightly larger version of the Parlor Resolian model with a cut away body design. There are three models, a standard 14 fret, a travel sized 12 fret, along with a Tenor model we call the Highway 49.
