Hello I invite you to have a look to a new series of pictures offered by the courtesty of the grand son of Eugene Vees.
It confirms without a doubt that the Epiphone guitar played by Django on the Rodeo Club footage of 1946 belonged to Eugene: you can see him play this guitar in different contexts.
There are also a quite rare picture of Django with Eugene Vees and Jean Guiligou Vees a violinist (pere d Eugene et oncle de Django) and a beautiful picture of the cousin trio: the sons of Django, Joseph and Eugene playing for Naguine, in Django's trailer.
Hope you'll enjoy these pictures
