Fasan Holiday Guitar from 1968 with incredible "finish"

guitarz.blogspot.com:I love the look of this German made Fasan Holiday. There is nothing better than fake plastic trying its best to look like fake wood. In a fake news world this guitar should get all the headlines. The metal embossed pickguard, and a well aged tremolo only add to the character of this late 1960s beauty.Currently listed for $500 CanadianR.W. Haller© 2016, Guitarz - The Original Guitar Blog ...

guitarz.blogspot.com: There's a lot that can be said about this 1967 Bigsby Condor Prototype. But, like the seller, I really don't know where to start.

Status Quo's Rick Parfitt passes away

He'd recently made the decision to quit playing live shows with Quo, and wasn't too keen on their recent preference for acoustic-biased material. He was however looking ahead to 2017 with a solo album and autobiograph ...

Odd Reverse Jazzmaster with a giant "why?"

guitarz.blogspot.com:As a fan of Jazzmasters this reverse parts-made beast caught my eye. Would we call it a Reverse Partsmaster? Generally I'm pretty ambivalent when it comes to reverse bodies on guitars. Sometimes it works while other times, not so much.This falls in the "not so much" category. The inclusion of the Samick neck and the crudeness of some of the woodworking doesn't help the case for this poo ...

Greg Lake: King Crimson and ELP star dies aged 69

guitarz.blogspot.com: 2016 has been an extraordinarily bad year for our favourite musicians passing away, and now I'm sorry to learn that Greg Lake has died.

Rare Burns Steer from the early 2000s. Possible prototype.

guitarz.blogspot.com:Thanks to Bill Lovegrove on the facebook Burns Guitars and Amplifiers page for posting this Burns Steer. This rare and possible prototype guitar looks like the love child of a regular Steer and a Brian May signature Red Special. Burns was producing both models at the time so the intermingling was quite likely. Though the body, neck,  and headstock are those of a cutaway Steer, the float ...

guitarz.blogspot.com: The internet is killing me today.Look at this Hayman 3030. This beauty is in great shape and to my eye appears to be all original too.

Heartfield RR-59 Made by Fender in Fujigen Factory 1992

guitarz.blogspot.com: We looked at Heartfield guitars once before with this RR-58 and I mentioned that I would love to see it in green ( it's kind of a thing for me, green guitars ) and lo and behold here we have a green Heartfield RR-59.I think it looks incredible.I've yet to get my hands on a Heartfield guitar but given the quality level of guitars coming out of Japan at the time I can only assume it play ...
