guitarz.blogspot.com:I think I'm in love.There is little to say here that the pictures cannot say for themselves.This Sauvage OPM1 ( One Piece Master ) is everything that is right with modern guitars as far as I'm concerned. Slightly retro, slightly modern, and wholly original.R.W.

guitarz.blogspot.com: Yet more very sad news in a year that has seemed crueller than usual to some of our most beloved musicicans. The latest to be taken from us is Rick Parfitt of Status Quo. He'd recently made the decision to quit playing live shows with Quo, and wasn't too keen on their recent preference for acoustic-biased material. He was however looking ahead to 2017 with a solo album and autobiography planned.More>>G L Wilson© 2016, Guitarz - The Original Guitar Blog - the blog that goes all the way to 11!Please read our photo and content policy.{{ Guitarz - [...]

guitarz.blogspot.com:As a fan of Jazzmasters this reverse parts-made beast caught my eye. Would we call it a Reverse Partsmaster? Generally I'm pretty ambivalent when it comes to reverse bodies on guitars. Sometimes it works while other times, not so much.This falls in the "not so much" category. The inclusion of the Samick neck and the crudeness of some of the woodworking doesn't help the case for this poor guitar.And, most glaringly, the output jack. How......what.....why? The seller is aware of the complete stupidity of this jack location and has decided to sell it as it is. So, there's that at [...]

guitarz.blogspot.com: 2016 has been an extraordinarily bad year for our favourite musicians passing away, and now I'm sorry to learn that Greg Lake has died. No doubt we'll be hearing his 1975 solo hit "I Believe In Father Christmas" over this festive season; although not explicitly about Christmas it's one of the better records to be categorised by many as such, but now will be tinged with sadness.

guitarz.blogspot.com: The internet is killing me today.Look at this Hayman 3030. This beauty is in great shape and to my eye appears to be all original too. I have a 3030 that i picked up last year, but wouldn't it be nice to have 2?This auction is ending in 10hrs as I write this so you have only that long (or as long as my resolve to not click on bid can last) to get in on one of these for a very reasonable price in my opinion.R.W. Haller (backing away slowly from the internet for the rest of the [...]

guitarz.blogspot.com:Thanks to Bill Lovegrove on the facebook Burns Guitars and Amplifiers page for posting this Burns Steer. This rare and possible prototype guitar looks like the love child of a regular Steer and a Brian May signature Red Special. Burns was producing both models at the time so the intermingling was quite likely. Though the body, neck, and headstock are those of a cutaway Steer, the floating tremolo, Burns Trisonic pickups, and switching are very much Brian May. I wonder if the pickups are wired in series as on the Brian May model.Currently listed in South Africa. I wonder [...]
