    NVD My 1959 Flying V

    As most vintage guitar geeks can attest to. Who wouldn't like to own an original late 1950's Flying V? On Thursday January 16 at 2:16 pm, I received a photo from my friend Rick at Garrett Park Guitars. The photo was of the lower corner of a Flying V, showing no more than a broken white jack...

    1956 Les Paul with a Six Speed 😊

    I have been on the hunt for a custom ordered ‘56 with a factory Bigsby. Just happened by a local guitar shop that NEVER has vintage guitars, but low and behold had the one I have been looking for. She’s a beauty and very clean. Best part for me is, she comes from the original owner from...

    2018 Brazilian Knopfler Burst

    My Burst pal Vic really hooked me up with this 7lbs 10oz Brazilian beast. And Tone for days. When I grabbed the neck and picked it up from the case, my first thought was. Is this thing weight relieved? But no, it’s solid and has major sustain. Love everything about it and the green lemon...
