I'm always on the lookout for oddball guitars and something that could turn into an interesting project guitar, to whittle away dark evenings here in Ireland.
I've just found a very grubby looking fuitar that maybfit the bill but I'm not exactly sure what Im looking at. The decal...
One of the latest horses into the stable. Very unusual Fernandes snake skin themed guitar with the legendary Fernandes sustainer system; this is my first Fernandes with a sustainer, so very much looking forward to seeing what it can do.
Lateat edition to the Fernandes stable. This unusual Fernandes Limited Edition superatrat. The board may have been scalloped as a custom order back in the 80's as I can not find any model matching the control layout on this. May have been a special run for a shop chain. Guitar is from 1987 and...
Ive just read that Fender intends to stop using rosewood for its finger boards
However there is no link to Fender's official statement provided in the article. Can anyone provide the official link?
Latest addition to the family. Burny "Flash" / "Lightning Bolt" headstock inlay, VH1 pickups, Gotoh tuners, fret edge binding. And it's a lefty which is quite rare to see.
Guitar is in transit so I'llpost a video when I receive.
Just a quick little jam on this 1993 Charvel Jake E Lee signature, which were released in Japan.
Two single coils (reverse angled)
5 way selector
Factory shaved neck
Factory bone nut
A nice way to spend one's day!
Just got this Fernandes Jake E. Lee guitar, which was part of the Fernandes Musicians series. I will post a video of this in a head to head with my 1993 Charvel Japan Jake E. Lee; which one will reign supreme??!!!
A quick video on my attempt at this Hendrix tour de force in tasteful, and measure blues guitar. Very difficult (for me at least) to capture all the little subtle nuances, but its fun to give it a go. I'm further on than where I stopped in this video, so I'll post an updated attempt.
A quick video / sound demo of my Greco Mockingbird super real, which is just a mean rock n roll machine!
I'm playing it through a pretty unusual ElPICO AMP, probably from the 70's amd a Harley Benton/Joyo British Tone pedal. Elpico are not a very widely known amp but the Beatles...
Just a quick demo of the Harley Benton / Joyo British tone. I dont use a lot of pedals but I'll recommend this to anyone wanting overdrive on a budget!!
Controls are very interactive but once you put in some time with the pedal, you will be rewarded :)
Trying to establish a more complete picture of when this ESP was made. Initial feedback suggests the pots date from 1982 and were made for ESP by CTS, hence the ESP markings on the pots. Can anyone off further advice in relation to the code on the neckplate and codes on the neck heel and neck...
Has anyone experience with putting a vibrola on their SG? Are there any differences between the long and short arm versions/sideways in relation to performance and/or tone? Amd who makes the "best" aftermatket versions?
I have a white Burny SG custom and Navigator SG I'd like to add...
Trying to establish a date for this Navigator SG. Can anyone decode the pot codes? The dot on the i is seperate and the position of the V points to it being early.
Double ring tuners may also be significant as is on older Burny guitars. Any information appreciated as there is very little online...
