Bonnie and Clyde and the Maccaferri

In the Netflix film "The Highwayman" about the two ex-Texas rangers who trapped and killed Bonnie and Clyde, there is a scene where they go into a bar and the guitarist in the band performing there is playing a "D" hole Maccaferri style guitar. I wonder what the chances of anyone actually having an instrument like this in early 1934 in the backwaters of America were?

    I saw that the other night and that scene caught my eye. I thought somebody involved in making it was a Sweet and Lowdown fan, kept listening for someone in the crowd to call out to Emmet Ray.

    @MarkA I thought the same thing, it must've been Emmet Ray!

    iirc, Clyde's saxophone was recovered from the wreckage of the car that they died in. Us woodwind players are not to be messed with ;-)

    Was Clyde an Alto or Tenor player?
