Ned Steinberger's one-off prototype L-Series headless bass

guitarz.blogspot.com: I ought not have to write too much about Ned Steinberger's one-of-a-kind prototype L-Series bass as the pictures say it all really. Built in 1977 the bass is modelled from carbon fibre and although it is headless, Steinberger seems to have simply moved the headstock from the end of the neck and re-positioned it behind the bridge. It uses regular bass guitar tuners; obviously created be ...

Avante AV-2 Discontinued Baritone Acoustic Guitar

guitarz.blogspot.com: I got to play one of these Avante Baritone Guitars when they were a new product in the stores. It was the best baritone acoustic I had played at the time and probably still the best mass manufactured baritone that I've ever played.The fit and finish looked better than the above pictures would imply. Though at $700 I think that the seller is a bit optimistic. It may be fair enough if th ...

Dean V-Coustic Flying V acoustic abberation.

guitarz.blogspot.com:Oh Dean, you is so metal.Leave it to Dean Guitars, purveyors of all fine "Rock" guitars, to come up with an acoustic Flying V.I can just imagine the meeting they head at head office circa 1987, all spandex and cocaine. " This will make us all millionaires!" I bet C.C. Deville was there ( though I admit, I'm not sure if he was ever a Dean endorsee, i just see this guitar and immediately ...

Warmoth Telemaster in stunning Blackburst Finish

guitarz.blogspot.com: I'm fairly surprised that the Telemaster style of guitar is as polarizing as it is. I became a fan when Fender Custom Shop built the prototype for Makin' Music, a Chicago guitar dealer.Since then, as I've researched and coveted this awesome hybrid, I have found either sheer adoration or pure vitriol for the Telemaster. Not a lot of indifference.As a Telecaster player and a former Jazzm ...

Takamine GB-7C Garth Brooks Signature Guitar.

guitarz.blogspot.com: Here we have a signature Takamine for Garth Brooks. I'm not a Garth fan but there is no denying the stranglehold he had on the genre for a majority of the 90s. And, honestly with all the insipid "bro-country" dominating the charts lately something like Garth would be a breath of semi-fresh air.I am, however, a fan of Takamine. This is a great example of one of their mid-high range acou ...

Vantage Neck-Through Electric Guitar with Upgrades. Made in Japan

guitarz.blogspot.com:Here we have another fine example of circa 1970s-1980s Japanese craftsmanship. Vantage was one of many brands to come out of the Matsumoku plant and, I believe, made for the Canadian market.There is a lot to like about this Vantage guitar that has been "rescued" according to the seller with upgrades including EMG pickups, Bigsby Tremolo, LSR roller nut, etc.In my experience these guitar ...

Gibson Super 400 from 1936

guitarz.blogspot.com: I was looking at a 1936 copy of Melody Maker where I saw this ad, and knew I just had to share it with you guys. The guitarist in the ad is Harry Sherman, guitarist with Brian Lawrence and his Lansdowne Restaurant Orchestra, and he is seen here playing a Gibson Super 400 guitar. The Gibson Super 400 was introduced just two years earlier in 1934 and was named after its price, as it orig ...

Tele Tuesday – American Fender Elite Telecaster from 1983

guitarz.blogspot.com:I've long been a fan of the Elite Telecaster from the 1980s. Much like the Fender Aerodynes the Elite series guitars are high end without looking too flashy. They are just more classy versions of the model.This 1983 Telecaster Elite has the added perk for me in that it has a great green finish.Currently listed at $1600R.W. Haller© 2015, Guitarz - The Original Guitar Blog - the blog that ...

Custom Canadian Hemp Guitar. The Lowryder. ( Insert obligatory Bob Marley joke here )

guitarz.blogspot.com:This is a unique take on sustainability in the guitar world. Hemp can be used for a lot of different products and has a very interesting story within the history of manufacturing and the industry.This guitar is a good example of when a company can maintain tradition while embracing new ideas and materials.Though the look of this guitar doesn't rock my world, it is made with quality comp ...

Hohner B2 / B2A fretless headless bass wanted

guitarz.blogspot.com: Please forgive this rather cheeky post, but hey, as blogmaster of this guitar blog I don't think you can begrudge me the occasional perk. To get to the point, I ended up playing a Steinberger-styled Hohner B2A headless fretless bass at a gig last night and I totally fell in love with it. I did ask the owner if it was sale, but unfortunately for me he wanted to keep hold of it. I really ...
