Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette Electric Guitar

Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette Electric Guitar

Grey is a fascinating color. It’s the shade of sharks, of heavy mid-winter clouds in the Midwest, of wooden fence posts and old barns left to weather on the open range.

Gibson ES120T Electric Guitar

Gibson ES120T Electric Guitar

If there is one word (besides the greatly overused “rare”) that drives me nuts in reviewing guitars, it’s a Latin one: circa. It means about or around. It’s fine if a seller lists a guitar as made circa the 60s. It means it was made around the 60s. The trouble starts when you get a seller like ours who labels this Gibson ES120T Electric Guitar circa 1966. So, does that mean 1965 and 1966 and 1967? Or 1965 or 1966 or 1967? C’mon, seller….

1965 Fender Champ Amp

This amp got me thinking. I wondered how many people alive today were alive when this 1965 Fender Champ Amp was made. So I asked Google. Google gave me lots of stats about world population numbers but Google spat back no concrete, easy answers. I love me some concrete, easy answers. But still, no love from Google. In the final analysis, the number doesn’t mean squat. What does mean squat is how this amp plays and…

1997 G&L Legacy Electric Guitar

I love American-made G&L Guitars. They are classy, smart, well made and fun to play. I’m willing to bet this Nuclear Waste Green 1997 G&L Legacy Electric Guitar is no exception.

Seller writes her body and neck are “flawless, like new.” For being nearly 18 years old, she shows no fret wear, no dings, no tarnish. As seller notes “she’s…
