Aluminium... aluminum to you :0)
'Talbo' stands for 'Tokai Aluminum Body'
A local builder has a pretty cool take on the tele theme, in stock:
Maybe one of those Schecter black Tele's Pete Townshend played in early '80s.
But then - my right hand is better suited with an archtop, I find it difficult to pick on a flattop...that would be the reason NOT to buy it, even if I could afford the money.
There WAS one I was not-so-secretly lusting after for several years, and tonight I finally finished it!
So I guess I can check that one off my list...
Used to have one of those.... it's a funny story actually.
Well, you know it's kinda like when a pretty girl walks by, I ain't likely to do anything but look.
This Guild Starfire right here:
Collings 01 Traditional...
I’d also love a Rosewood Tele.
Again, I'll bite.
We're a little off track here. I didn't really mean what's your dream guitar. I meant what guitar do you sort of really want but don't have a good reason or use for it?
All of the guitars I own were bought as players with a purpose in mind. Some have been bought because I wanted them as my #1, some to fill a niche.
The Elvis SJ-200, on the other hand is something I just want. Elvis was my first musical hero. My mom adored him and still thinks he was the greatest singer ever. I just want that guitar to look at and maybe strum on from time to time. It's not a dream guitar, it's more like fantasizing about showing it off to friends, particularly none guitar playing friends.
I could me playing and striking Elvis poses in front of the mirror when nobody's home!
I guess the thing is that a guitar like that would lead to a "collection" instead of an accumulation. I don't want to be a collector. I don't want guitars that are objects of "art". I want musian's tools to beat on.
Anyway, the train may be off the rails but let's let it roll!
This is one of but not the Guitar my son and I played at the Guitar Center in Hollywood. It was as true to the old Brazilian rosewood D-28s as I've ever heard. I've never heard any Martin that sounded any better than that guitar. I'm too old to have one now, but this was close on to ten years ago, and I sincerely wish I would have went ahead and sprung for the guitar then. This is just a youtube video, there is no way you can capture what that thing sounds like on something like that, but it's sort of descriptive.
yes, just about every one I see
<1995 Gibson Les Paul (95 was the last year before they increased fret height). I have strict requirements.
Heritage cherry sunburst, super flamey. No pick guard. Well worn in. Deluxe tuners, not Grovers. Zebra pickups. Slim taper neck.
I found one this last week at a store that exactly hit the specs too. It was perfect (if pretty beaten up) 95, but priced at 2500$ (equivalent)... 1000$ more than a lot of the other used Standards. They usually go for between 1.5-2k for a used one on the private market.
I recently sold 3 guitars and had the funds, but genuinely it wasn’t $3000 better than my heavily upgraded Epi LP Standard, let alone my PRS.
Hey, you're the one that said 'lust after.' Don't blame us.
Well, there are women I lust after. That doesn't mean I want to bring them home.
I loooove Gibson Doves. I have a secret lust for the black Elvis model...
Gibson Byrdland - $10k+ for a guitar would mean I had won a mega lottery.
Asher Resosonic Rambler - I buried enough to pay for two of these in my backyard last year (septic tank problems).
National Resolectric - Same as the Asher.
