Thread: Some Great Guitar Porn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

slowhand6 - 10/14/2005 at 01:21 PM

How about a thread designated to some really high-end and rare pictures of guitars. Try not to discuss any of the pictures here, unless you really can't hold back. Instead, just post pictures, and links to pictures. The idea is for it to be a gallery rather than a discussion thread. I hope you all enjoy some of these rare gems!

Oh those relatives wiht axes !
I have a cousin several years older than me, when he was young he took money he was supposed to buy a pony with and went an bought and SG style Les Paul in 1961...maybe that was the year, he bought it new from a shop. He still has it, its beautiful and he's never learned a note on it ! arrrghhh !


BigDaveOnBass - 10/16/2005 at 10:23 PM

Haisija, that same uncle has a black ES-335 a la B.B. King's Lucille, an ES-175, '82 tobacco sunburst Les Paul, an Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty (black with 3 pickups and gold hardware) and I think he has a Gretch Chet Atkins Country Gentleman. And to top it all off, he has a 1937 Gibson electric amplifier...in mint condition. He's got a nice collection going.

I searched pretty hard for a sound cliip and finally found one. It sounds kind of strange. Sort of out of tune, but also very avant-garde. Similar to Project Z.

I believe the reason is to find new notes that aren't possible on a standard fretted guitar. Dave, look what they did to this bass:

^ That one looks like an M.C. Escher guitar! The degsign gives the impression that the neck is bowed out ... not a plumb line on that thing!


slowhand6 - 12/5/2005 at 08:53 PM

Actually, the neck is set using a new philosophy that Charles Fox came up with-

Create an angle between the neck & the body that is natural to the guitar. The strings naturally want to pull the neck & bridge toward one another. This guitar's neck is raised, and the body angled downward away from the fretboard, allowing the bridge to be in a position that give the strings a more dynamic and natural tension. Supposedly it creates a beautiful voicing as a result. And for the price tag it better!

You really should read up about it. That is just one of the new innovative design features unique to this guitar:

http://www.ergoguitars.com/

Also, Jimmy Herring & Warren play Fox guitars. I believe they are among one of the best guitars on the market.

It wasn't excess that motivated them, it was the Dead's attempt to deliver quality sound in stadium-sized venues as their popularity mushroomed. I heard them with this setup at the UC Santa Barbara football stadium and the sound was crystal clear from great distances, even for Old and In The Way, Garcia's bluegrass band that opened.

The mic setup was, each singer had two mics on the stand, one vertically on top of the other, and wired out of phase. Being out of phase meant that any signal received simultaneously by both mics was canceled out, so feedback would immediately be squelched.

Wow - that's one of those things I always wondered about. I assumed when I saw photos of singers using two mics at the same time (there are lots of pix of Ronnie Van Zant holding two gaffa'd together) that one was for recording purposes, if they didn't have decent splitter cables to a recording console or what have you. It's never been a satisfactory explanation tho but the feedback thing makes sense - sort of. I'm sure feedback coming from below, eg from wedges etc, will still hit the mics at different times, so that can't have controlled it too effectively?

aiq - 6/16/2007 at 04:54 PM

to wade in on the GD wall of sound: the two mikes out of phase were designed to cancel out all background noise - the instruments on stage, etc. the result was only the isolated vocal signal going to it's own rack of speakers in the array. the studio live in other words.

still the best, bar none, sound system i've every heard at a perforance. those flying rigs you see at most venues now are a very scaled down version.

From the Fretboard Journal's Blog:

http://www.fretboardjournal.com/blog/

Selmer D’Angelico
Now here’s something you don’t see every day. Unless you own it, in which case you do. Anyway, Archtop.com is selling a 1934 D’Angelico that was made for Selmer. (Check out the headstock) According to D’Angelico’s ledger, he added the Maccaferri-ish cutaway at a later date, so it’s not quite as originally Selmer-y as it looks. The description says it was made for Selmer New York not Selmer Paris, so when it was built it was unlikely that D’Angelico was aware of the French guitars Mario Maccaferri had designed for the European arm of the company in 1932 and 1933. Still, it’s a very cool item.-MJS

I haven't looked at this thread in a long time, and that has to change.

As far as the Wall of Sound, I always love looking at pictures of it. Although I never heard it in person, it fascinates me. However, the only two recorded examples I've heard of the sound produced by those special vocal mics were "Steal Your Face" and the movie, and I frankly can't stand the vocals' sound in either of them.

I haven't checked the link you provided , but I'd be willing to bet it's the same company that built Vox guitars .

Correct!

Eko built the Phantom and all of it's variations in the 60s.



Vox guitars have been Japanese made since 1982, if wikipedia is correct.

A guitar? What are you doing in here then?


michaelsio - 1/21/2010 at 07:55 PM

From Tone Bender:

1968 Rickenbacker 366/12 model 12-string electric guitar. This unique Rick twelve string version of model 360/12 came stock with a special convertible "comb" device to disengage the extra octave 6 strings and turn a 12-string into a 6-string. The device was first introduced by Rickenbacker in 1966 and later discontinued in 1974.

I never really liked this beast. The neck was as wide as the Missouri and it was prettier than it sounded. Now that I've sold it, it will more than likely become very collectible.

I mentioned McGuinn in another post . I read on Wikipedia where he said the Ric on its own didn't give him his signature "jingle-jangle" sound . He credited that to some sort of compressor he ran on his board . You Ric was defintely a ballsy-looking axe though .

and the hardest part of playing a 12-string is the pressure you need on the frets. I don't see that tool being able to help with that.

http://www.jimdunlop.com/index.php?page=products/pip&id=244

My old band mate from FL, Steve Connelly and his band Headlights backed up McGuinn on tour for several years in the late eighties - Back from Rio era. Steve confirms that the DynaComp is central to the jangle.

BTW, if you love the BYrds and havn't heard Back from Rio, it's very close to the original Byrds sound.

Why yes I do.
An old buddy I used to play in a band with back in JR High and high skruul has one of these he got when he was about 13.
The "claws" slide over, reach up and grab the octave strings and pull them down away from the main 6 therefore when you pick the guitar, you can have the 6 string sound. Release the octave strings ( and the extra b and high e) and your back to 12 stringing it. 6 or 12, strings were a muther to bend.
There are also two input jacks on the guitar. One is standard and the 2nd input is for " Rik-O-Sound".
The same buddy also got some sort of Supro back in Jr High. Over grown single cut away fiberglass body with a black trim ring which separates the front of the guitar from the back. Wood bridge , but so far in you photos I haven't seen the particular model he had (had?).
The single pickup was a bit stairstepped, a bit like a few treads would be in a spiral staircase. Some where either at my mother's , the former Mrs Hai's or in a Missouri landfill is a photo of me in the 9th grade playing it. Hope I can dig it up one of these days.
He also got a Gibson mandolin in kindergarten, as it turned out , the spiral on the mandolin was the only mandolin Gibson made that year in which the spiral on the top of the body wound in a complete opposite way in which all the other mandolins that year were made. I guess some luthier was just being a bit of a jokester and has probably lined Billy's pockets pretty well.
The owner of these intruments, Billy Stockman was a bit unique.
Ate mustard.
Plain.


Haisija - 1/23/2010 at 03:59 PM



No this isn't me and I don't think its my old friend...its the spokes person for Knuckleheads Saloon in Kansas City, Yves Rojas holdng a National which is the guitar I was referring to as a Supro in a previous post. I wonder if my bud sold his guitar, they are rare and ugly as hell.

while on the subject of the byrds - and for all you country/bender types, here's one. from the private collection of george fullerton, a 1965 fender musicmaster II with a prototype b-bender designed by leo fender, clarence white and gene parsons from 1968.
