Guitar appreciation thread

Postby Tactful Cactus » 16 Jun 2017, 12:16

Wasn't there a Guitar porn thread before? I ran searches but couldn't find it

I'm loving this blog, some of the guitars look amazing, updated regularly too

Oh yeah, the Fretboard journal is your best bet for guitar porn. They cover players and makers and other aspects but always has gorgeous guitar pics. I own most of their issues. :oops:

I was talking to a coworker the other day about guitars as we both play. It's surprising that beng a collector type I didn't do that with guitars but I didn't. I have two acoustics and two electrics and two amps, small and smaller. I appreciate them but as long as they feel good and they sound good, I'm happy. I don't fret over little thing gs with guitars. I'm picky about what I want but as long as I get that I don't care about the details.

A friend of mine has a ES-175 made n the late 70s or early 80s I forget but during Gibson's downturn so it isn't sought after and my friend doesn't even play it much anymore.

Might be a good time to sell, 175's are gaining popularity again with the jazz leaning Rock set (White Denim, BadBadNotGood etc.)
I'd like a 175 but I'm nowhere near good enough to get the best out of it. Im better with an all-rounder type guitar that covers my shortcomings :D

Note Quine's comments about Lester Young. Yeah, this is supposed to be a guitar thread, but a guitar thread that doesn't have room for Lester Young cuts off its future.

Good piece. There must have been similar doomsday stories in the 80's when keyboards took hold, the guitar was dead forever then too. Hopefully its cyclical, the next grunge/britpop will bump the market again in 5 years time.

Marty Stuart explains how he ended up with Clarence Whites guitar. He seems a very likeable and humble bloke, I'd love to try that string bender device

For some reason, Clarence's guitars have had a career after his death. I don't know of another guitarist for whom that is the case. Here's the other famous instrument associated with him.

Can I hope that RoMo will shine its fantastic light upon us again in the not too distant future?
The invisible and the non-existing very much look alike.
