It is in fact the very first “Club-Style” guitar that I have seen with Hofner-fitted active electrics. So, it was even more disturbing to hear that the guitar, after being purchased “on-line”, had arrived in pieces and was in very poor condition. Luckily, the new owner, Bob Cocozza, has employed the services of James Payze in the UK Red Barn Repairs to restore the guitar, the results of which can be seen on the linked page. It is interesting to see that this guitar was fitted with a centre body sustain block, which is very unusual on a “Club-Style” guitar.. It did actually appear in the “New Guitars” supplementary price list of Spring together with the Fledermaus guitar, but not in the main Hofner price list. I haven’t been able to find any reference to it in any Hofner catalogue. Very few are in existence, and the controls and electrical circuitry seem to vary between examples. Walter Hofner was very interested in guitar circuitry, and this was no doubt just one of his projects.

A – If you’re a buyer, the value is the max price you are ready to pay to have it. If you’re a seller, the value is the minimum amount you accept to sell it.. You can check ebay for completed sales for the same model, but value on ebay is not value in a shop or elsewhere, for reasons.

It is stamped with “Fairbanks, made by Vega” which suggests , but the serial number is which suggests ish. The two serial numbers match. It is stamped “Little Wonder” but it has 22 frets, and I thought that the Little Wonder had less then Do you have any ideas about when my banjo was made? By the twenties, banjos were going out of favor compared with their earlier popularity.

The ES was introduced in Gibson hired Ted McCarty in , who became President in He led an expansion of the guitar line with new guitars such as the “Les Paul” guitar introduced in and designed by Les Paul , a popular musician in the s and also a pioneer in music technology. Later, a shorter neck was added. Similar in size to the hollow-body Thinlines, the ES family had a solid center, giving the string tone a longer sustain.

In the s, Gibson also produced the Tune-o-matic bridge system and its version of the humbucking pickup, the PAF “Patent Applied For” , first released in and still sought after for its sound. These “modernistic” guitars did not sell initially. It was only in the late s and early 70s when the two guitars were reintroduced to the market that they sold well. The Firebird , in the early 60s, was a reprise of the modernistic idea, though less extreme.

Modernization[ edit ] In the late 50s, McCarty knew that Gibson was seen as a traditional company and began an effort to create more modern guitars.

That figure might be a slight exaggeration, but Metheny was dedicated he says obsessed enough to impress Dr. The professor offered the year-old a teaching position. And his group — Metheny, keyboardist Lyle Mays, bassist Mark Egan, and drummer Danny Gotlieb — were as close to rock stars as any jazz combo of the past four decades.

Metheny, born in August of , represented a truly new, unmistakable, individual voice in jazz guitar — on electric and acoustic, as well as being somewhat of a pioneer of the guitar synth. Then there was The Orchestrion Project. I think all you can do is hope for the best, play the odds, and in the case of music be a real good listener.

That seems to usher in that zone thing. Every night we got to it. Just a magical combination of people, and it was pretty exciting knowing that we were going to get to that. He was kind enough to interrupt some down time by talking guitar perhaps more extensively than he ever has, and he allowed VG to shoot some of the more distinctive pieces in his extensive guitar collection.

Related to this model Video 39 comments Add your comment! Mumperino – I bought a 63 H about a year ago and have been playing it plenty. It is in very good shape and could be played easily fingerstyle but i chose to set it up for slide playing and i have to say that i prefer it to most of my other guitars for that kind of playing. I know that it is not a top of the line model, but it has a very cool old time dry woody sound that i find appealing, plus they look cool!

Thteguitar sounds great but the action is too high.

If you’re looking for an easy to play guitar, the action doesn’t get any lower than this baby. Excellent value and quality that’s typical of Korea today. This model was only made in one small run so there aren’t many of these around – most of the Harm 3 models feature the cats eye f-hole in a semi-hollow design while this model was a limited edition production model that’s no longer available. It features a solid archtop mahogany body, 22 fret maple set-neck with ebony fretboard and synthetic bone nut, side markers on the side of fretboard only, jumbo frets, flat The setup on this guitar is superb and the tone is warm and rich, very good choice for anything besides metal.

A killer metal axe with cool looks with Tribal graphics, Widow headstock, and beveled edges which catch light and give it a very 3D look on stage. The main attraction of this axe, however, is one major upgrade in the tone dept. Now this guitar sounds as bad-ass as it looks.

H Monterey Leader guitar made by Harmony – One of the most popular archtop of the sixties – more than 30 years of production time.

These guitars already have a great vintage vibe with an authentic looking two-tone sunburst gloss finish, parchment parts, and tinted neck, so the vintage logo is icing on the cake. Other features include C-shaped maple neck with maple fingerboard and modern 9. Like the early vintage models this guitar also has stacked knobs with a volume and tone on each pot. The tone pots are the click type, rather than a smooth taper; nice touch. It might seem odd to have a Jaguar logo but we wanted to have a little fun with it and the two models are very close in styling, especially on these Vintage Modified models.

We also did a Jaguar with a Jazzmaster logo! The logo job is perfect with several coats of nitro finish, wet sanding between coats, built up to be as thick as the logo so the outline isn’t visible pic here. Suffice it to say it definitely looks like a regular factory logo. We have been impressed with the quality of the Jags and Jazzmaster Vintage Modified, which we feel is as good as the Vintage Vibe series of Strats and Teles.

Pickups are especially good sounding.
