I’m selling off old gear, and I pulled this thing out today and fired it up. A strange feeling, akin to finding a phonograph in the attic and playing ancient shellac records on it. It works perfectly, and I loaded some early 90s hip hop sounds and made a beat!

For Tone Dorks Only

|August 12, 2012 | Found Sounds, Gear

There’s this very specific sound that a few ( rad ) Telecaster players in the late 70s / early 80s managed to get – kind of ( if you’re not a guitar player, leave the room now, okay? ) gainy-but-not-actually, not twangy, sort of scooped-but-if-you-listen-to-the-mids-not-really. I don’t know what it is that would make a CBS-era stock Tele sound this way, but I’ve always been partial. Backing off the tone knob? Obsessive multitracking? Radical EQ? Perfect shitty distortion box to vintage amp tube brown-ness ratio? I have a feeling it’s some kind of less-is-more equation I’m not grasping.

Soviet Guitars

I wasn’t able to find the amazing guitar that the Ukrainian guy in the video below is playing ( the band is called Vopli Vidopliassova, or VV ), but I found this. Oh my god, I want every one of them.

I always wanted one, and I never got around to it when they were going for what they’re worth. Expensive now, like everything old. Oh well. Seen at Preservation Sound, the amazing, comprehensive vintage gear site.

T&R

I don’t think people are generally aware that Kustom also made guitars. I’ve tried a few of them out, and I think they’re quite handsome, but it’s not hard to see why they’re uncommon : they’re almost impossible to play. If you’ve ever picked up an old Rickenbacker or Mosrite and been surprised by their small scale, imagine a guitar with an even slimmer neck and smaller frets.

The Lewis Guitar

I had always wondered, and it was one of the first things I asked her when we met. She said she got it at a pawn shop in Canada, and that there weren’t very many of them. Later, I found out more, including information about some other famous players.

Crestwood

|February 13, 2012 | Gear

Another vintage guitar in a beautiful color, with a design so pleasing that the idea of actually making music with it barely occurs to me. I just want to just look at it. Touch it, maybe. This is a 1964 Epiphone Crestwood, and a large number of very detailed photos are here. Good luck finding the correct whammy bar, though.

I once owned a genuine Teisco Spectrum 5 ( the rare and iconic ultimate 1960s garage guitar – mine looked just like this ) which was missing its whammy bar and part of the scratch plate logo. I became obsessed with these missing parts to the point that I couldn’t look at it anymore, and I sold it.

Another Cool Old Amp I Never Heard Of Before

I saw this : ” Basically they were a Dutch-built Marshall clone using VERY cheap parts. As they were affordable, the Dutch punk bands bought them and the raspy, tinny sound became the sound of 80′s Holland punk. Guy had a few of them as local bands still insisted on using them in his studio for authenticity, but he hated them. I thought they looked amazing. I want one… I don’t care what they sound like! “ I agree – that’s some serious guitar-nerd eye candy.
