Pure Salem Sad Fester Left-Handed guitar with beatiful top wood

Is that walnut? Or something more exo ...

guitarz.blogspot.com:As a fan of Peavey and an owner of a T-60 I must admit that I've not played anything of theirs that was built after the 1980s.

I specifically would like to try th ...

guitarz.blogspot.com:I'd only ever heard of Defil guitars on this blog as Betram had posted a few great examples in the past. Imagine my surprise when one shows up in my own proverbial back yard.I love the styling of this Defil Jowita. It's unique but familiar at the same time. Defil was a Polish guitar company that started in the 1960s. This example is from the 1980's and as the seller states "The neck is ...

The Comicaster – One of a kind Telecaster ( thankfully ?)

guitarz.blogspot.com: I'm not a huge comic book guy, but I'm pretty sure that the person who did the artwork on this "Comicaster" tried their very best to include every comic book character in known existence. This busy graphic fails in that I suspect even the most ardent comic book fan would prefer a more focused image.Am I right?R.W.

It appears to be in s ...

Beetle Quantar vintage MIDI guitar synth Yamaha G10 lawsuit like Roland Synthaxe

guitarz.blogspot.com: The seller of this MIDI guitar says..."An utterly unique opportunity, possibly the rarest instrument on Ebay this week."A little research does indicate that it was a very short lived product and may not have even been officially launched. There are very few references to it in Google and only one video on youtube showing one in action. It apparently fell foul of the muscle of the might ...
