Seems obvious now, but I'll bet it was a game-changer;
My 30 year old Shubb, along with a more recent G7. I also have a Kyser, but don't care for it.
Oooo...torn on this one. I LOVE arch tops. But TECHNICALLY, they're acoustics that have been electrified. And they are definitely the most beautiful acoustics IMHO. As for electrics...that leaves room for the Tele...win/win!
I'll start with this, as both the design and the logo are iconic to anyone who lives between the coasts:
Next, what I consider an iconic NY/NJ archtop:
As I merely dabble in guitar, and my main instrument is the Contrabass Viol (aka "double bass"), this is what I consider the archetypal Continental Orchestral bass-- 5-string Ferdinand Seitz, Mittenwald, Germany:
And, since a whole bunch of guys have already posted their favorite cars, I'm going to take an off-road approach! The International Harvester Scout was introduced in 1961 as a competitor to Jeep. Arguably, it inspired the Ford Bronco, Jeep Cherokee, and Chevrolet Blazer introduced later in the decade:
First hit the market 1950.
Still in production today.
At one point, I owned 4 of them.
As a duck hunter, I loved the way you could completely disassemble it, even get the bolt out, with only a stick (or a pocket knife) and a rock (drift pins).
I had to do it once when I fell over in the swamp and pushed the whole gun down into the muck. Got it all apart, swished the mud out in the water, put it back together, and filled out my limit with it. Most other repeaters, you would have been done for the day.
Remington 870 pump gun.
Kinda made the Model 12 obsolete!
Not semi-hollow archtops
Good one! But I'll do one better:
The Model 1898 by Paul Mauser. Just about every bolt-action rifle in production today can trace its' design back to this one, including the model 1903 Springfield, the Winchester Model 70, the CZ/BRNO model 550, the Ruger Model 77, and the Savage Model 16/116. Though heavily-modified (push-feed instead of controlled-round feed), even the Remington model 700 and Sako model 85 likely began with the M1898 as a starting point.
A screw is the most beautiful sculptural work.
I believe someone already posted a Rolex Oyster type wrist watch.
Guns always seem to be advanced technologies whatever the age, even flintlocks. I wanted to build one from a kit for years before I got into guitars. Went to all the flintlock forums, had wish lists from Jim Chambers and Track of the Wolf etc. Same range of builders as guitars, from cheap kits, to very expensive kits, to expert gunsmith scratch builds . I handled one at a gun show, so incredibly balanced you couldn't tell it weighed anything. I know the difference but guns and guitars occupy the same space in my head.
Jeep CJ-5 and much of the Kaiser and Willy’s Overland designs.
this pic was listed as a 1955
I don’t currently own one but have owned a 49 truck and a 62 utility wagon was my first car.
someone had to go there...
I think I've posted this pic here before, but, the classic Ric cat's eye soundholes of my stereo shelves. Why? I think they make my stereo sound better
Right on, my very favorite car ever, since I was a kid and had the Matchbox edition.
Do they make it sound more jangly?
Just to prove your point, compare this to the modern 2020 992 911 but I am biased!
