Sho- Bud Guitar

Hi Terry. I'm new on this site and have never replied to anyone about this Guitar. I have a Diamond model # 7722. It's in fantastic shape and plays great, It was given to me by my step father-in-law after he passed away, a few years ago. He was an excellent bass player. He also had a red, white and blue bass guitar that Buck Owens and his band made famous years back. I don't know what happened to it. He also told me stories about playing with George Jones, years before he became a super star. Until now I wasn't sure anyone knew about these guitars. I so glad to here, that someone knows the history of these great gitfiddles. They play and sound so good. I'm sure the Grand Slam is out there, but I've only read about one or two that were even made. Thanks for listening, Bob...

Diamond Model

By the way, this guitar is for sale if anyone knows anybody looking for one. Thanks Bob...

Have you ever heard of a Marwin Pride Archtop Acoustic Guitar. I have one and can't find any information on them.

marwin guitars

I also have a Marwin guitar. It's a Marwin No.1 archtop, circa 1935. Mine has a solid spruce top, solid birch sides and back. All the Marwin guitars were made by Harmony for Tonk Bro.'s of Chicago. They sold Marwin guitars and mandolins. Mine has a great sound, especially for blues or jazz. Hope this helps.

Marwin Guitars

My sister has a Marwin Jewel that was past down from my Grandfather in Hawaii. If you have any information on those let me know as well.

Old Yamaha jazz guitar, who knows more about it?

Hello,
I bought a 2nd hand Yamaha hollowbody electric guitar. I was told that it was made between the years 1972-1975. The guitar has the serial number 24545. It is in a very good condition, everything works fine, including the tremolo. There are no scratches on the guitar and the hardware shines as brandnew. I paid US$ 900 for it. You can see some foto's of the guitar on www.dutchcom.net/yamaha_guitar/index.htm
Can you tell me what this model is called, when it was made, what the price was when it was new and what the value is now.
Thank you very much.
Kind regards,
Armin Moller

I got mine in 1981

Re: SHO BUD ACOUSTIC GUITAR

I have a Sho Bud Acoustic Guitar (Heart Model 7724) which
my wife bought for my birthday in 1981. She went to a local music shop and asked the owner (who was playing this guitar at the time), If he was going to buy any guitar in
his store, which one would he buy. His response, The Sho Bud Heart he was playing. She bought the guitar on the spot. She thouht the owner was going to cry... I will tell you this.. I will not part with it. To me, it sounds
better than any guitar I have heard.

: John, I also have a sho-bud club model. I've had mine for over 20 years, and paid $200.00. I don't know it's present value, but certainly much more than I paid. I saw Roy Clark playing a club model on Hee Haw--I was impressed.

Re: SHO BUD ACOUSTIC GUITAR

The only thing i know about the guitar is that i would give my right arm for one. It has a terrific sound and is very well crafted. I have a friend who has one. The playability is good, and I would rather play it then my martin anyday. If either of you would like to sell, contact me or post a message.

Re: SHO BUD ACOUSTIC GUITAR

: : I have a Club Model 7720 that I have tried to get information on. The guitar plays great but was dropped at church and a little damage to the back of it. I might sell it if the price is right. I live outside Indianapolis.

Re: SHO BUD ACOUSTIC GUITAR

i have a sho bud that is plain looking it sounds great it is not a club model but i dont know much about mine either.

Re: SHO BUD ACOUSTIC GUITAR

: I have a Sho-Bud. It is not a Club model. I don't know much about it. My brother had it for a long time. It has a very good, rich sound. It sounds better than my Martin.
Are there any other web sites to check?

I have the same guitar. I bought it new in 1979 for $200(I think) As I recall there was an entire line of these guitars , one model for each card suit...club spade heart diamond and also a "grand slam" model. I havent seen another Sho-Bud acoustic guitar since the day I bought mine.It has developed a very sweet tone and is worth far more to me now than what I paid.

Re: SHO BUD ACOUSTIC GUITAR

I have the same guitar and I can not find any info on it. I got mine in a pawn shop in Fort Wayne, In. A friend of mine worked in the pawn shop there. Plays good.

Re: SHO BUD ACOUSTIC GUITAR

These posting are kind of old, so I don't know if any of you guys found out anything more about value. I have a Diamond Model. I traded another guitar for it back in 1979 or 1980. I have played it extensively ever since. Sounds great and has a fantastic action.

Re: SHO BUD ACOUSTIC GUITAR

I have a Sho Bud Acoustic pre Gretch (diamond heart club spade or grand slam). This is number 75 of 100 they made before selling the patent to gretch. It is hand made right here in USA. Any ideas on how much its worth?

national triolian 4 string

i looking for info on this item i will sell
its brown in color,national triolian 4 string metal body guitar
stamped on the neck end is 1 8 5 6 and under that is stamped 1 0 3 2 w and under that is stamped pat apld for
anybody kno anything bout this
bob

Re: national triolian 4 string

I, too, have one. You can tune it like a baritone uke (D-G-B-E) or like a tenor banjo. I use the uke tuning (1st 4 high strings of a 6 string guitar). Ptoblem with them is that the necks bow and you grow sharper up the next. Austin luthier Vinnie Mondello rebuilt the neck with a steel rod, wood braces, and fiberglass inside and it now plays like a jewel.

Re: national triolian 4 string

Let me know if you find anyone that can help you, I have one that sounds almost identical.

Thanks,
Kim
