Jimmy Raney

Jimmy Raney20/8/1927 - 9/5/1995

Jimmy Raney was an American jazz guitarist and composer. His bebop guitar playing and his legato phrasing made him a cool jazz guitarist. He is best known for his collaboration with Stan Getz.

It seems that Jimmy used a Gibson Es-150 (before it was stolen). He also used a Gibson L-7 (the guitar of his brother Dough) for a few gigs, a Gibson ES-175, then a Hofner (it remains to be checked for this last one).
