1970s Greco telecaster-esque black beauty

guitarz.blogspot.com: We’ve looked at a lot of Greco guitars here on Guitarz but I’ve never seen this particular Greco before. The telecaster similarities are quite obvious but it retains a style all its own with a funky tremolo, awesome pickups ( deArmond?), and more pronounced cutaway on the upper horn. Listed for $ 495 US. R.W.… Keep Reading

Homemade Upright Bass-Banjo. Awesomely unique instrument.

guitarz.blogspot.com: I’d love to hear how this Bass-Banjo sounds. I think it’s a great idea and I had one of those ” how have I not thought of this” moments. This particular bass looks like it was made quite cheaply It makes me wonder if it’s a viable concept to make a higher end version. Has… Keep Reading

Homemade Upright Washtub Bass.

guitarz.blogspot.com: As a compliment to yesterdays post with the homemade upright bass-banjo I thought I’d share this take on the washtub bass. The design and construction are simple yet ideal and I feel that its not the builder’s first time making an instrument. Keep Reading

The Danelecto Bellzouki 12 string guitar from 1965

guitarz.blogspot.com: This Danelectro Bellzouki was the brainchild of Vincent Bell, a session guitarist in the 1960s. Apparently when asked to play bouzouki for a gig he tuned one up 12 string style and faked his way through the show. This lead him to design an electric version of a bouzouki.  Initially there were 2 sets… Keep Reading

The Phantom Acrylic Telecaster by Logical Guitars

guitarz.blogspot.com: I’m neither for or against acrylic guitars. I think that in the right form, they can look awesome. In fact I’m very open to non-wood guitars of all kinds. If anyone has ever played a Rainsong carbon fibre acoustic they’ll likely agree with me. There is a lot to like about The Phantom. It… Keep Reading

Both the posting and the scouring. That said, not all is… Keep Reading

On November 2nd 2015 at 7.30pm BST Blackstar are hosting a webinar to launch a new “Blackstar Artist Series”,… Keep Reading
