Old Wonderful Guitars / Brands Available Prior To 1970.
I'm wondering about the guitars available at the birth of Classic Rock / Hard Rock. My recent purchase of a Rickenbacker turned out beautifully. Now I'm wondering about other hidden gems from the "past", (dark ages to some of you), might be available. Back when men were men and women washed, ironed, cooked, were pleased by a new vacuum cleaner on their birthday and lived to please their sorry ass man's needs. No. I'm not going to say those were the good old days. Vacuums were pretty costly back then.
So i'm thinking about brands Like Gibson, Fender, the original Epiphone, Gretsch, Hagstrom, Burns, Guild, Rickenbacker, Kay, Danelectro, Airline, Domino, Teisco, Penncrest, Norma, Harmony, EKO, Univox, Silvertone, etc. etc..
Anybody here have any loves, wish lists, unfulfilled electric guitar desires from this time period.
Just to increase the responding pool I'd like to give a special welcome to any member who's mom and dad weren't even born during this time period.It's cool. Many electric guitar players show a strong interest into the history of their instrument. Your opinion is important to me.
