New guitar imminent. Get aredy!
I am starting a project with the 1984 Westone Concord SX. I’ve bought everything I think I need. Details next weekend.
Short post because there isn’t much to say about this generic Strat copy. This is just a generic project guitar. I picked it up cheap because it was broken. The bridge was screwed up, the pickguard was broke and the electronics were shot. I don’t even remember if it had any pickups. It’s what I … Continue reading
You can’t have a guitar page without some amps. So here’s mine. This is my 1994 Fender Princeton Stereo Chorus. A real stereo chorus amp! Look at the schematic! This is actually my second Fender Princeton Stereo Chorus. Both are early 90’s models with the black knobs. I still have the other one, but it … Continue reading
I don’t feel like editing a bunch of pictures this week, so for THIS WEEK ONLY! I will post another Lame Links! Places I get my guitar parts! Guitar Fetish.

Note: this will be my last major update for a few weeks. Vacation beckons! Guild was acquired by Fender in the late 1990s. They decided to bring out a DeArmond line of cheaper Guilds, alà Squier. Instead of calling them Squiers, they used the DeArmond brand name, which Fender had the rights to. Read all … Continue reading
Twang King! This is my 2000 model Squier Telecaster. My mom bought it for me for my birthday back in 2001. It was originally the “fat” variant, with a humbucker pickup in the neck and a traditional Telecaster pickup in the bridge position. I really didn’t care for the obnoxious ceramic magnet single coil in … Continue reading
I was a little busy this weekend, watching Len Cella play the organ with his organ. Actually, I have plenty of time to write a detailed post about another one of my guitars, but if I do that each week I’ll run out in a few months and have to resort to filler posts from … Continue reading
This Electra Phoenix was my first real electric guitar. Well, the others were real in a technical sense. It wasn’t like my Synsonics Terminator was an ‘air guitar’. But that guitar was just a toy. Nobody takes a guitar with a built-in speaker seriously – not even me. I believe I got this for my … Continue reading
