  1. Yamaha SA-50, anybody???

    Thanks for your thoughts and advice. Hanspanzer: thanks for the link to the sharpenedflat website. Good info there about this model and others he sells. Later models did have the wooden pickup surrounds. I actually am leaning toward the mini-hums in the one now for sale. Coil tap for as a splitter? No pickguard is okay. Bound f holes, top/lower binding. It is a mutt but who knows. Will think this over but interested in more comments. https://www.sharpenedflat.com/vintage-guitar/Yamaha-SA-50-0200 https://www.sharpenedflat.com/vintage-guitar/Yamaha-SA-50-0119
  2. This looks like a bit of a mutt, but lately I have been musing on a Bigbsy-equipped guitar. Somehow this one is speaking to me. The Bigsby looks pretty primitive. Anybody ever play one of these? They are from the late '60s / early '70s. Thanks in advance. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Excellent-1968-SA-50-Yamaha-with-Gibson-Duncan-Bigsby-electric-guitar-RefNo-478/173069913936?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649
  3. Compared to this 25th Anniversary, a bargain, no? http://davesguitar.com/products/hamer/25th-anniversary-artist-99/
  4. Is a Sunburst case different from a 2000s Hamer case? That seems pricey.
  5. Yes, that's it but I also have 10-12 product sheets plus the price the list.. They are yours. Enjoy. Shoot me your mailing address and I'll get them out this week. I can cover the postage. I am cleaning out the attic this winter and will probably have other stuff.
  6. Congrats. I will send you the '81 set. See if yo have the '89 set.
  7. Happy New Year. I have a packet of Mesa catalogs and price sheets etc from April 1981 and also 1989. Free to a good home. One or the other or both. Still in the mailing envelopes. Would prefer they end up with a a Mesa fan and not just a hoarder. Will ship USPS media some time this week.
  8. A = 432hz vs A = 440hz

    Same guy and same guitar, correct? How did they split the screen? This was pretty cool. Thanks.
  9. Merry Christmas

    God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen!
  10. This really isn't a blonde or brown Princeton is it, if it is '66, because that was already the blackface era, no? Not sure what the speaker is but , if it came from a Fender Twin, isn't it sort of over-sized for a 16-watt amp. Maybe good for cleans but not for break-up? Thoughts? Thanks. https://reverb.com/item/7824636-fender-princeton-1966-blonde
  11. Touche. The finish crackling is fantastic. Nice camera work.
  12. A classic in every respect. Well, maybe not the case. GLWTS.
  13. Newly Acquired Talladega

    Was there a certificate that identified the finish? Not many like that. Where did you find it? Very nice. Congrats.
  14. Duesenberg guitars?

    The guys at Andertons discuss the company and then play four models. While they are positive about parts, quality and finish, they also lay out some negative comments on the shiney, black LP type ('59er) is described as "spiritless" (10:30) and too derivative, and "too perfect"(?).
