It's been a while since I found a builder who does some things that are just so unbelievably freaking cool that I just stare at their website in disbelief, loosing track of time, and finding myself unable to think about anything other than what I'll have to do to own one. The last time I remember being that blown away was probably in 2005, when I stumbled upon Nash Guitars, back when you could custom order instruments directly form Bill Nash. The next time was probably the Chad Underwood/Destroy All Guitars Telstar Strat/Tele hybrid.

Now, Dennis Fano of Fano Guitars has miraculously found a way to top them all. He builds what look like "mash-ups" of super groovy vintage instruments that look like they were built during the golden age of electric guitars. How about a cross between a Tele and a Silvertone/Danelectro with Gretsch pickups?? No problem...

Jazzmaster with P90's or a Les Paul Special with a Tele bridge and pickup?

How about a relic'd version of a cross between an early Rickenbacker and Neil Young's Les Paul?

Check the website for dealers and more pictures of these crazy creations. They seem to be right around $2K USD new. Pretty damn cool. If they sound as good as they look, they'd be pretty hard to beat if you're looking for something that you wont see every week at the blues jam. Here is a thread about them on The Gear Page.

I wish there was a Guitar Center in Louisville!


And now the real price:

Damn. I guess we don't need a GC here after all.

God, I want this guitar!

Suhr Antique T, Nitro Finish! A maple board version like Andy Summers would be "top cool, " as my friend Ho Chi used to say.

Everybody Wants Some!!!

Holy Smokes! Check out the new Reeves Super 78!

This amp really nails the old school EVH tone. Really. Listen to this!

Read all about it and listen to more clips here. $1799 for the 50watt version... not bad. Power scaling is optional, but if it sounds like that that, why wouldn't you want it loud?!?


I know it's only a gig bag, but it's a pretty damn cool gig bag. I wouldn't feel right putting my Suhr's in my Fender bag, even though it might reduce the risk of theft. I bought it from Dave at Indoor Storm. They have too much drum gear for my liking, but they have tons of awesome boutique guitar crap.

Not mine, but pretty damn cool.

This one belongs to Csapo from The Gear Page. It looks super fun

New Guitar Day

Suhr Classic. I actually got this a couple of days ago, and used it at this weekend's gigs. This guitar sounds incredible. I'm waiting for a copy of the spec sheet from Suhr and I'll post details once I receive it. I can't really imagine myself playing anything but a Suhr ever again. It's that good. This is my second Suhr, and it definitely wont be my last.
