The nice thing about a blog is that I can write about anything that is on my mind. This week has nothing to do with guitars. I’ve just returned from being in Europe for 3 weeks – 1st week at Messe, then the next two with my wife Kay and 9-year-old son Troy in Southern Spain and a couple of days in Paris. Yes, a well deserved Holiday.

Here are a couple of photo’s that surfaced this past week of Eastwood Guitars in action. The first is Britta Phillips (Dean & Britta) taking her Eastwood Hi-Flyer Bass Guitar for a spin recently in NYC at Dean’s book release party.
Saturday night we wrapped up our inaugural participation at the annual Frankfurt Musikmesse. The fair runs four days and is the International version of North America’s NAMM Show – but much larger in scope. What a great success. We met with many customers – new and old – and had a great time! Here are a few pictures of the people and products we saw.
What has become a rare and collectable American made guitar, the 1967 Messenger is being brought back to life with a tribute model from Canadian company, Eastwood Guitars, Inc.
I own several of Eastwoods Airline re-issues with those marvelous chambered bodies but my signiture stage sound over several decades is the one produced by the strat single coil pickups. I thought it would be an interesting experiment to mount 3 strat style pickups into my white Airline deluxe and see what happened. The combination of the chambered body and the single coils is awesome, very full and woody sounding. No alterations to the guitar body are necessary using rings I found through Allparts that are the same size as humbucker rings.
Now, here’s a piece of guitar history that proves there’s more than meets the eye, a circa 1967 Cameo 1402T! It wasn’t that long ago that violins were considered the superior cousin to its distant relative, the guitar. You know: violins equal classical music equals high class. Guitars equal popular music equals you dancing fool you!
First, define your objectives and determine your approach. These objectives may change as you progress, but a goal is important before starting to play the guitar. Begin by forming good study habits. Part of your study will be physical performance and part will be mentally engaged in the study of theory, listening to recordings, tapes and the radio, watching television, Internet and watching live performances.
This twin twelve Alamo Futura Reverb is a true sleeper of a vintage amp classic. This is one of the greatest amps I’ve ever owned (or heard), and they are out there at still very reasonable prices on the vintage market.
