    I've always been a Gretsch guy when it comes to electrics. Old ones. But lately I've developed a fondness for archtop acoustic German Guitars. Her's a 61 Hofner 464S. Solid carved top acoustic guitar with a surprisingly modern feeling neck (like many 60s Hofners) The Germans weren't at all afraid of aesthetic innovation whilst still producing high end instruments.

    That’s a great looking Hofler and the shape of the f holes gives it a real modern look. I have a body and neck of an in branded German carved arch top guitar. The mechanic is fat and full of boorer so I will be shaping a new neck and using the green existing ebony fret board. A job for when I hang up my earphones for work.

    All my German guitars have fat mechanics and are full of boorer! THey really had a wide array of sound-hole designs, Many had 3 holes. Interestingly most also have tapered mortise neck joins like cellos or violinswhich make reset easier
    Here's 2 other German guitars.
    Both all solid carved tops and backs. I still have the bizarre Hoyer Special on the right. It really is cutting edge archtop design, and from 1958, almost an 18" lower bout, like a Super 400. The comparative slender and elegant mid 50s Artur Lang is pretty well the peak of German guitar craftmanship and an excellent sounding guitar. Sadly, the neck, though slender and fast had almost no taper making the spacing for the right hand very very tight. It was the most expensive guitar I've ever purchased and I was hugely relieved when I sold it, despite it's great sound and beauty. I consider myself a player rather than a collector so I can't justify having guitars I'm not going to play. Beauty and the beast! Beauty and the beast.jpg

    A number of years ago, Cary Hudson was voted #5 on Gibson's greatest alt-country guitarist of all-time list. Here Cary is playing his 1937 Epiphone. I've seen Cary live several times.

    In 2015, my friend Heather Crosse toured with Eliana Cargnelutti and Sadie Johnson for Ruf records, Blues Caravan. Heather is the bass player with them in this video. https://youtu.be/lOk6mBU5TgU
    I actually met Heather soon after that tour in August of 2015. One of the last times that I saw Heather, she said that she and Eliana keep in touch.
    Eliana just posted this video today of her playing with Walter Trout.

    A longer version of Eliana and Walter Trout. I should have posted this one instead of the other one, but hadn't found it then. This shows more of Walter's playing.

    Hofner made some oddball stuff in the early sixties.

    I spent some time butchering one of these to install two P90s and some custom electronics - epic faff as the string spacing and bridge shape were nothing like any Gibson....

    That reminds me of an old Danelectro guitar.

    My favorite work from Chet was in his later years when he gravitated to playing a lot of nylon string guitar. This one, I think, is one of the guitars Kirk Sands built for Chet.

    I had to ask on the forum quite a while back to find out what Eric Deaton's Teisco guitar was.

    RJ giving a little review on the new redo of the old Danelectro line. Pretty versatile little guitar. Overpriced, I think, but cool. Cool costs these days I guess!

    Heather mentioned above has always played a Danelectro bass when I have seen her. But in latest videos, she has been playing what I think is a Fender. She told me once that playing a Fender made her shoulder hurt. She has been working lately with John Ruskey on his trips taking people on canoe trips on the Mississippi river so her shoulder has probably gotten stronger.

    You could say he's certainly got it down pat! That was a great video, thanks.

    In this video we have two telecasters flanking a Gibson Flying V. Roy Buchanan I reckon is my favourite of the masters of the Telecaster.

    Roy pulled all his tones out of the guitar and didn't use foot pedals.

    Why not follow the Ice man with the Ice Queen playing something different from what she more often plays.

    Those Buchanan volume swells and string bends are crazy. He was ahead of my day so far as his style of play. I was a bit young to appreciate it. He was also technically ahead of his time compared to nearly any other players in the early 70s.

    Ana Popovic, great playing! I haven't been aware of her before, thanks for posting!

    Larry Carlton is an impressive player! I went and bought a Gibson ES 335 because of his sound and style. It's one of the guitars i wish I hadn't sold.

    Well if it's good enough for Dolly.



    Dolly Parton played a $99 mini electric guitar at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony



    I wonder how much that one is worth now.

    I really like Larry Carlton also.

    I happened upon this recent clip of Billy Strings. Looks like a Halloween bash maybe.

    Nice Rob. What does H.S.S. mean? I have had the most smiley grin making fun on Mexican Fenders / Squires. Once a shop assistant put a USA Fender ultra slick expensive fandango guitar in my hands, smile gone. Just not for me. I need an instrument that fights me a little, makes me work, then I'm good and the tunes flow.

    I found this place in Wilhelmshaven. Freaky stylee. All aluminium.

    Eternal sustain.
