Vintage/Semi-Vintage Guitar Gallery
« on: February 28, 2007, 12:54:32 PM »
Mga ka-kosa,
post naman kayo ng pics at specs ng mga vintage at semi-vintage guitars niyo!

For serious collectors, the term "vintage" usually refers only to instruments crafted in the '60s and earlier. Pero sama na rin natin mga born in the '70s and '80s para masaya.

here's my beat-up 1987 Gibson Les Paul Custom.

all stock except the bridge pickup, which was defective when i got it. had to replace it with a SD '59. neck pickup is stock Gibson "Pat. No. 2,737,842" humbucker. replaced plastic nut with bone, and had it refretted too.

The first two on the left are sort of "vintage".



The blue green one is a MIA 1980 "The Strat". Only three years in production. The second tone knob is actually a switch to enable 9 positions for the pickups. Today, Fender offers a similar S1 switching system.

The cream one is a MIJ 1987 Squier that I have modded with a Floyd and a HS-3 (don't like it) as bridge pickup.

well. may "vintage" tsaka may "old". hehehe. sama na natin yung "old" para marami makasali.  :-)

sa pananaliksik ko, yung defintion ng "vintage" depende sa brand and model eh. like for Les Pauls, strictly those in the first runs of production. before they temporarily pulled the model from the line. i.e. bago gawing uso ni clapton et al. for serious wood fanatics, it's the some 1,800 1958-60 sunbursts, and only that. sa fender naman pre-CBS. sa Ibanez, vintage na ang late 70s-80s. on the other hand, may ngsasabi na basta 20 years old vintage na.

Breathtaking Collection, Blue......  you could publish a whole Vintage Guitar Magazine with all of those gems...........  How about it?  With specs and all....  that would be quite a read......  We all could chip in and help with the photography, publishing and stuff......  :-D :-D

Whew, after Blue's posts, i'm almost ashamed to post this.... anyway, here's something i got really really cheap back in 2004...... 



A Bruno Conqueror semi......  thinline, bolt-on neck......



Here's a body shot.....  There's multiple body binding, very nicely done....



The logo...



The pickups have this gold foil on them.....  weird, but there you have it.....  i don't know if its for shielding....  Very bluesy sounding, especially with a tube amp....



The trem is a bigsby copy.....  doesn't travel that far, but it does the job....



Its a 5-bolt neck!!!  :-D :-D  The neck is composed of multiple laminated wood.......



Here's a shot of the back.....  I like the fact that even if its a bolt on, the body binding still continues all around the guitar.....  then there's that deep red sunburst.......



Well, that's my Bruno..... absolutely zilch data on the internet........

Thanks for looking!!!
