Vintage Framus Strato Deluxe Star Bass from the 1960s

guitarz.blogspot.com:We looked a a Framus Strato Deluxe a few weeks ago in this post.

This bass is in desperate need of a setup though as I could likely fit my head between the strings and the fr ...

Beautiful Watson Mustang copy guitar. A made in Japan 1970s Fender copy

guitarz.blogspot.com:There's a rare elegance to this made in Japan Watson Mustang that you do not usually find on the Mustang.

1925 Stromberg-Voisinet Tenor guitar, from the company that became Kay

guitarz.blogspot.com:This is a beautiful 90 year old tenor guitar. She's had some work done to keep her looking young. With a spruce top, birch back and sides, and mother-of-toiletseat fretboard it's hard not to love this odd shaped tenor.I'm always surprised when I see a tenor guitar with a pin-less bridge. Even though I know that the tension is similar to a regular six string ( if using a string gauge tha ...

You say Fender, we say Fendar! A not-fender copy with identity issues.

guitarz.blogspot.comThere's a lot to be said about this Fendar acoustic guitar, and not much of it is good. Look at that very familiar style logo. Then look at it again. And, again.

Rare Canadian Made Slivatone Resonator Guitar from 1935

guitarz.blogspot.com:When I first saw the ad for this 1925 Silvatone Resonator, I just assumed that it was a misspelling of Silvertone. But wait, was Silvertone around in 1935? Did they make resonators?As it turns out, Silvatone is the name of guitars built by Charles Edward Brasher in Toronto in the time before WWII. It sounds like there wasn't many made and even fewer that still exist.If it's as rare as t ...

MF Exclusive Acoustic guitar with interesting bridge/non-bridge

guitarz.blogspot.com:I'd not heard of MF guitars before seeing this interesting specimen from 1994.Apparently this MF Exclusive Acoustic is made from one piece of wood, not counting the fretboard.

1909 Gibson L-1 Archtop acoustic with Leather case

guitarz.blogspot.com:I contacted the seller of this 1909 Gibson L-1 Archtop guitar since it was mentioned in the ad that it came with a great story.

The guitar was later given to his son who kept it in a closet for like 50 years..till now...i ...
