1967 Musicraft Messenger Electric Guitar

1967 Musicraft Messenger Electric Guitar

Let’s say hello to a honey made in Astoria, Oregon, a 1967 Musicraft Messenger Electric Guitar. According to seller, San Fransisco-based Musicraft made Messengers up in Oregon for only two years, 1967 and 1968. Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad is the best known player of these unusual guitars. One of the unique features is her magnesium-aluminum alloy neck that runs through her hollow body from the peghead, bolting on at the endpin and the neck/body joint….

1930s Fascinator Acoustic Guitar

1930s Fascinator Acoustic Guitar

If a brand name alone could compel you buy to a guitar, you’d have to give in to a 1930s Fascinator Acoustic Guitar. Seller says this arch top beauty was made by Gibson for the Tonk Brothers to distribute under the Fascinator brand. Seller writes she rocks a Spruce top and Mahogany sides and back. She’s all original (except for her bridge.) Isn’t her tiger striped pick guard that extends to where body meets neck not the best?…

Silvertone Model 1457 Electric Guitar

Silvertone Model 1457 Electric Guitar

Take a look at this insanely cool kitty, a Silvertone Model 1457 Electric Guitar from the 60s. Yes, she has been ridden hard and has the marks and chunks missing to prove it, but you cannot deny the unmistakable style that shines through, from her lipstick pickups to her cutaway pick guard that encircles the neck pickup like an island and washes against the bridge pickup like a wave. Don’t you dig her sparkly red body despite some…

Taylor Rick Nielsen RNSM 615CE Acoustic Guitar

Taylor Rick Nielsen RNSM 615CE Acoustic Guitar

OMG, how did this 2003 Taylor Rick Nielsen 615CE Acoustic Guitar escape my attention until now? Apparently only 33 of them were made (and only a few of those are green.) For those not familiar with Mr. Nielsen, he is the madcap guitar genius behind Cheap Trick and often creates and plays multi necked guitars all while dressed like a comic book nerd from the ’50s. (He puts on quite a show. You can learn more about him…

1972 Guild S-90 Electric Guitar

1972 Guild S-90 Electric Guitar

Put yourself in the board room of Guild (or Martin) back in the early 1970s. The era of folk music was passing and the electric boom was in full swing. What was an acoustic guitar maker to do to compete but make an electric guitar—such as this American made 1972 Guild S-90 Electric Guitar? And thus began the experiments. Guild did it. Martin did it. Fender did it in reverse by offering an acoustic guitar. Oh,…

Dean Dave Mustaine Mako Glory Acoustic Guitar

Dean Dave Mustaine Mako Glory Acoustic Guitar

You gotta love an American flag guitar with exposed conduits and machinery and stuff underneath, and this Dean Dave Mustaine Mako Glory Acoustic Guitar does not disappoint. I suppose this is ironic imagery—or heroic, perhaps —recognizing the often hidden and ignored heavy machinery that undergirds the American way of life. Leave it to a guitarist from Megadeth to expose this dichotomy. Mr. Mustaine, we salute you. Seller doesn’t say where she was made but that’s easy enough…

Nash T-63 Tele-style Electric Guitar

Nash T-63 Tele-style Electric Guitar

Ready to lay down some nasty twang and such? Well, meet your sweet partner in crime, a Nash T-63 Tele-style Electric Guitar. She was made in America in October, 2012 with an Alder body and Lollar pickups. Seller says she’s never been gigged, just a bedroom collector guitar. I’ll take seller at his word but judging from her nicks and all, they must have had more than a few superheated sessions. I love her blue. Seller says she…

Artinger Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar

Artinger Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar

“Do you know where you’re going to? Do you like the things that life is showing you?” Those lyrics start the classic Diana Ross song “Mahogany.” And were she singing about this 2007 American made Artinger Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar, I’d say “hell, yes!” This jewel is a bona fide jaw dropper. Her Mahogany body locks eyes with you and won’t let go. And her body’s nothing to be taken for granted either. Just look at her rounded…

Gibson Zakk Wylde Moderne of Doom Electric Guitar

Gibson Zakk Wylde Moderne of Doom Electric Guitar

Okay, guitar nuts cannot see the words “Gibson” and “Moderne” without raising an eyebrow, and this Gibson Zakk Wylde Moderne of Doom Electric Guitar will be no exception. The original Moderne is the stuff of legends. Supposedly developed in 1957 along with Flying V and the Explorer, Modernes have been “sighted” but never documented. Likely, the only models from 1957 were prototypes. People have been looking for the Moderne ever since. They are the holy grail…

Martin 000-28 Custom Shop Acoustic Guitar

113 folks are watching this American made Martin 000-28 Custom Shop Acoustic Guitar from the early 2000s. That’s a lot of peeps (and even more peepers.) Just what exactly are they watching? To start, she is from the Custom Shop and is very much in the old-timey way—open slotted headstock, 20 frets, amber aging toner finish over her Solid Sitka Spruce top, even a beveled polished tortoise shell pick guard. Then there’s her stunning one…
