CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — An eastern Missouri native has written a book about the B.B. King’ guitars after finding one that had been stolen from the blues legend.

The Southeast Missourian reports that Eric Dahl found King’s missing electric guitar in a Las Vegas pawnshop in 2009. The discovery led to a meeting with King, and prompted him to write the book, “B.B. King’s Lucille And The Loves Before Her.”

The book details the history and color photos of each guitar King is known to have used during his lengthy career. It starts with the one-string Diddley Bow that King played as a child in Mississippi.

Dahl is a Fruitland native and graduate of Southeast Missouri State University. Today he works in Nashville as the regional promotion supervisor for the Sinclair Broadcast Group.
