Oh my, what have we here but a Fender Bandmaster Amplifier from 1964.

Carlsbro 50 Head Guitar Amplifier

Carlsbro 50 Head Guitar Amplifier

Today’s prize is in merry olde England, a Carlsbro 50 Head Amplifier made in Mansfield, Nottingham in the ’70s. She’s all class with an elegant color scheme for her knobs (which, I imagine, makes them easier to find in low light situations.) It’s also cool to check out in regular light conditions. Seller lists her in “brilliant” condition and “struggles to find anything worth mentioning” beyond missing her back panel. Seller says she’s basically all original with a…

Godin Acousticaster Acoustic Guitar

Godin Acousticaster Acoustic Guitar

Here’s a very lovely gal with a hint of mystery, a 40th anniversary Godin Acousticaster Acoustic Guitar. Her parts were hand-crafted in Canada then assembled in the USA, so let’s just call her “North American.” Seller gives us a bit of history about her. The Acousticaster was the original acoustic-electric guitar that put Godin on the map. One cool thing about her is she has 18 tuned metal tines under her bridge to create her special sound. She a…

Kramer Ferrington KFS-2 Acoustic Guitar

Kramer Ferrington KFS-2 Acoustic Guitar

Here’s a fresh breeze from the ’80s, a Kramer Ferrington KFS-2 Acoustic Guitar. She’s clearly an acoustic with more than a dash of Tele-style thrown in for good measure; she is an acoustic-electric. Check out her asymmetric sound hole. I haven’t seen too many like it. Seller says he is the original owner, that she was made in Japan and shows some light wear marks and scratches but nothing major. Seller notes one bridge pin head…

Capos: Because Not Everyone Has Vise Grips for Hands

Capos: Because Not Everyone Has Vise Grips for Hands

Capos are an easy way to change your key in a flash. You clamp them on, bingo. New key. Really experienced players with well developed hands can avoid capos. They just play what they need to play. Even so, capos can be helpful, even to experienced players. I, for one, prefer top chords to barre chords. A capo lets me play in top chords keys that would be totally barred. I like that. Keep in…

Ovation Viper Electric Guitar

Ovation Viper Electric Guitar

Here’s a foxy lady from the ’70s, an Ovation Viper Electric Guitar with its original tobacco burst finish. Seller doesn’t offer up too many details about her but she looks pretty good to me.

Electra Austin Electric Guitar

Electra Austin Electric Guitar

Holy smokes, it’s an Electra Austin Electric Guitar. Dressed head to toe in leather with symbols of the Lone Star State—including a Texas Rangers badge—she definitely makes an impression. I mean, even the neck is leather bound. Who doesn’t love the Texas longhorn on her front or the map of Texas on her back? She’s cool.
