    1966 Fiesta Red Stratocaster!

    Just what the title says, an early CBS fiesta strat, and a very very cool guitar! This guitar belongs to a friend of mine and he left with me for a few days, so I thought I'd take some pictures and show it off. I took shots of it in all different kinds of light, but none of them truly show the...

    Vintage M-8 rings

    I've got some extra Gibson M-8 pickup rings from the 70's. These would be correct to restore any 70s (possibly early 80s too) Gibson. These are made from butyrate plastic, so they look like vintage M-69s and would be a good alternative to the new expensive M-69 clones that are out there these...

    Anatomy of a naturally worn historic

    4 years ago last month, my wife gave me her credit card to buy this guitar after I came back from the store raving about it. She knew that I was looking to take some of the gigging burden from my 1969. It is light and resonant and has the perfect neck, so I was hooked. For the past 4 years I...
