Rayner Guitar from the 1960s. Not made in Japan?

guitarz.blogspot.com: There is very little information in the listing for this Rayner guitar. Just a phone number. I thought perhaps it was a lazy seller, but found that there is not a lot of information about these guitars. My first thought was that it was a Kawai with a different name but in some searching i found that it was quite possibly built in Ireland by Statsford.Can anyone confirm or deny this?No ...

One of a kind Treble Clef Guitar. Thankfully

guitarz.blogspot.com:Egads! Words. They nearly fail me. I'll try.Honestly, I could forgive this guitar for existing if it weren't for a couple of factors:1) Even though I much rather prefer a maple fretboard, never before has a design suffered so poorly by not being a darker wood fretboard. Continuity, anyone?2) The seller is asking $950 for what essentially appears to be a novelty guitar built from the par ...

Shergold 6 and 12-string double neck guitar, ex Julian Cope

guitarz.blogspot.com: We recently looked at a very fine example of a Shergold doubleneck 4+8 string bass. Now it's time to meet its guitar counterpart, the above pictured Shergold 6+12 string doubleneck which is currently being offered for sale via eBay UK with bids starting at £1,000. To make it even more interesting, this particular guitar until recently belonged to Julian Cope. I'm pretty sure I've seen ...

1979 Gretsch Committee with a slightly modified body

guitarz.blogspot.com:This poor Gretsch Committee has been modified to allow reach to the higher frets. It does look like the job was well done at least. To see what it should look like check here for an unmolested version.I do admit though that the offset nature does not bother me that much and if it would help with negotiating a cheaper price it would be possible to get a nice Gretsch solidbody at a deal.M ...

Ibanez Roadstar with Evil Ernie comic book finish

guitarz.blogspot.com:We looked at the Batman Raven guitar a little while back. It looks like the seller has done it again.Here we see a mid 1980s Ibanez get the Evil Ernie treatment. The less obscure guitar gets a more obscure comic.The seller says it is "perfectly playable but looks good on a wall too".Which is a good thing, about the playability that is, since $500 would be a lot to spend on guitar-art.R. ...

Hondo Deluxe 757 Tele copy from the 1980s

guitarz.blogspot.com:When I started playing guitar as a teenager in the 80s we all had the "cheap" knockoffs of the guitars we thought we really wanted. I personally knew at least 8 players with Hondo guitars. They were all Les Paul and Stratocaster copies. I knew they made other models, especially those inspired by the decade, but never before have I seen a Hondo telecaster.This made in Japan Hondo Deluxe ...

Blake's 12-string solidbody electric Frankenstein

guitarz.blogspot.com: Here's an email we received from Blake: This guitar was created in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The bolt on neck came from a 70s Epiphone acoustic 12 with broken bracing and poor tone. The body originated as an unidentified 60s Japanese Jazzmaster style guitar that was rescued from a dumpster. In order to combine these instruments, the neck pocket was slightly enlarged, the bridge and tailp ...

Parker P36 Leather Wrapped Guitar from 2008 with Piezo pickup

guitarz.blogspot.com:I have a love/hate relationship with Parker guitars. I've played a few of them and they have all played and sounded great. I love that they are inventive with design and were one of the first, I believe, to offer piezo acoustic sounds as a standard item on their guitars.Now for the hate: I think they are ugly.It's that plain and simple. Though i often love "ugly" or non-conventional des ...
