Hey guys, I don't know much about this guitar except it be very old it seems my guess is 40's to 50's era. the neck is partially separating from the body and the tuners are junk. I would absolutely love to fix this thing up (I'm a pretty handyman and am quick to learn. I've built a guitar before and have done days worth of research). The bridge and nut are homemade out of oak. I would like to bring it back to the original style if I can. This guitar has alot of sentimental value so if I have to I'll pay a luthier to fix it up. There are no markings but the sides and back seem to be curly maple. I was wondering if anyone can identify it for me. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Trying to figure out what this guitar is, ebay listing said it could be Teisco/guyatone/Silvertone/Zenon. I've found some similar Teisco models, but there are some key differences.

I unfortunately can't post links yet, but if go to youtube and search "Givtone Guitar" the first result is a demo of the same model guitar.

Thanks for any info in advance

Hey guys. I'm hoping for a little help here on trying to track down a guitar I had when I was a kid and (stupidly) sold. After doing a google search on it I'm pretty damn certain that it was a Luna Silver Gibson Explorer 90.

http://forum.gibson.com/index.php?/t...on-explorer-90

Does anyone know where one might be able to get ahold of one these babies or at least what a ballpark price would be if I do ever find another one?

Hi all

I won this copy of a Tele last year from Ebay for 30!!

The chap said it had stood under his stairs for the last 20 years! (Strings were black!!)

Does anyone recognise the shape of the headstock or have any idea who would have made it?? Was told that it could have been one of the kits that were available a few years ago


The guitar..





As can be seen, there are no identifying marks but the shape of the headstock looks familiar to me (Just can't remember what i've seen it on before )





Cheers, John

Not sure if I needed to make a new thread for this or not, but I need some help finding out the value of my guitar.

It's a Fender FSR Custom Telecaster HH Goldtop. Mahogany neck and body, rosewood fretboard. It looks almost exactly like the ones that were being sold on Musician's Friend for something like $350. The thing is, some parts of the guitar are different from what I've found on Musician's Friend and other sites/forums. For example, the tone and volume knob have abalone inlays like the frets and the pickup selector is metal, whereas the ones I've found online show plain metal tone/vol knobs and a black or cream plastic cap on the pickup selector. Also, this one is made in Korea, and the only other ones I've found online are made in Indonesia. Pics below:









Not sure if these differences affect the value of the guitar at all, but I just want to know how much I saved buying this guitar (got it on Craigslist for $275).

Thanks!

Here is the description :
"Custom Alvarez archback acoustic guitar hand made with dragon inlay"

Anyone give me a rough idea of what model this is and the appraised value of such a thing?

Also, is this custom made via some random dude or from the factory? The people I have spoke to at the pawn shop are incapable of answering any questions.

Thank you
Ha! Just clicked on this thread for the first time ... ever.

I know your question is over a year and half old, but just for the hell of it, in case you're still looking, 99.9% sure it's an early-mid '60's Harmony/Silvertone Jupiter 1423L. I don't know what it is about those things, but for some reason all of a sudden they're super popular with the alt/indie crowd.

Wish the video provided a better close-up, so I could make it 100%.

I'm more curious as to why the OP doesn't continue playing because he cannot be a metal star???.....
