He set up a GoFundMe to ask for help, saying that busking is his livelihood. In just 24 hours, the page was a success, and the guy was able to buy an acoustic guitar. But while he was in the guitar shop, he got a call. It was from JACK WHITE, who told him he wanted to buy him a new ELECTRIC guitar, as well.
The guy posted a photo it on Instagram, and said, quote, "Apparently he saw what happened and hit up his manager . . . who then amazingly tracked me down to the guitar shop just in time for me to walk out with this absolute beauty . . ."I cannot thank Jack enough for his absolute generosity."
