True Vintage Guitar Dot Com!

..... is coming soon.  At least I bought the domain.  I don't know hardly anything about this whole thing.  I want to make it a hub for people that like vintage instruments. The biggest thing will be a forum just for vintage gear.

Will you join the community when I get the website up?  I know you guys have cool gear that we could discuss.  Of course, pictures are a must.  I'll let you know as soon as I get it going.  I would really love for you to be a part of it.  Yes, you.  Whether or not you have gear or want gear.  You have something to say.  Otherwise you would be sitting on the couch watching a re-run of Wedding Crashers or Christmas Vacation.  No, you are out here looking for information on the stuff that you like.  You are looking to learn.  Forums are a great way to do that.

Here is a quick update on the guitars I have bought/sold lately.


Wow, I didn't realize how much was gone until I posted this.  Two guitars come to mind that will really keep me up at night.  That '53 J-45 was "the one I would never sell."  It is the prop that my wife and I used in our engagement pictures.  So sad.  

The second one is the big Kay Jumbo.  I spent a lot of time on the neck set, custom bone nut and saddle.  It came out perfect.  I sold it for way less than I should have and the buyer wasn't even happy with it.  I told him that I was a bit relieved and that I would buy it back immediately, pay for shipping both ways AND give him $20 for his troubles.  He said no.  So then I was out a guitar and the buyer wasn't even happy with it.  I begged him to change his mind and he refused.  So he was both happy any unhappy about it, I guess.  I don't know.

Something that was interesting about these sales is the fact that a couple of the guitars went to some big time players.  Suffice it to say that you have heard them play before.  Or you have lived under a rock for the past 50 years.

I wish I had more time to write about these.  Right now, unfortunately I don't.  Sorry that these pictures are less than professional.  Have you gotten anything cool lately?  Share it with me.  Shoot me an email or comment.
