Franciscan model 6900, 1974/1975

When I was 13, I was given my first guitar (Franciscan). I played (finger picking)for years. I haven't played since the early 90's and want to begin again. My question is: Has anyone heard of a Franciscan model 6900 (1974/1975)? It is still in like new condition. It needs some set-up work and strings. I will never part with it, but I was wondering about its history and value. Anyone know anything about Franciscans?

Re: I need to paint my guitar...nothing fancy, just a color

The one person in my town who might know says that you cannot do it in the winter because the finish will not hold...I need to see if there is another way to paint a guitar sparkle red and make it look good in the winter.

I have learned some from 33 years experience, also recommend books by Ron Kirn or Jacksonville FLA. Find them with google search.

Anyhow, if your spraying environment is warm enough, I think the sparkle finish should adhere. Overlay with several coats of acrylic lacquer, not nitrocellulose. Let cure for at least 3 months before assembly.

Also, my silver sparkle Strat-type guitar custom-made serial number 001 made by Bill Nash/Nashguitars has survived temps of minus 30 degrees, and is okay, since I warmed it up for 24 hours at room temperature before opening. BUT, nitro would have cracked, I think.

DO contact Ron Kirn. He's a nice guy and and expert, after all he wrote the book(s)!

Re: jack whites guitar

: could someone please tell me what guitar he plays,its driving me nuts

Please tell me where to find his music, hear it or whatever. My son Andrew at RockItSciencelabs - Advance Guitar & Sound Technology has a database of over 60,000 musical pieces and is trained to identify equipment by sound, if he doesn't know already what gear is being used.

what is a great guitar for your first on?

hey i was wanted to know if you can help me. and tell me what brand and kind of guitar is good for you fist one!

Re: what is a great guitar for your first on?

how much can you afford to spend.
and, its a matter of personal taste...
got to the guitar shop and play a few guitars and see how the respond to you touch...(playing)
You will find something comfortable and then you will move upwards...I have only spent about $500 on any guitar (acoustic and electric) but, I find there is something missing...so Im going to have to save my allowance and then get the guitar that I want....

Good Luck in your journey....

left handed guitars

Hey i need some help finding a reasonobly priced left handed guitar.I mean their are pleanty of shops but no guitars.please HELP!!!

Re: left handed guitars

Try looking for a Epiphon AJ100 series. with an L after the model number (Lefthanded) Reasonable priced guitars. Some $250-300. Also look at used guitars. If handeled right they are just as good after 20 years as they were new. I found one today for $230, but that was here in Sweden :-) It was a lefthanded western guitar 20 years old but a very good one.

Guitars

Hey, I'm sooooo interested in learning to play the guitar for a Skaband, can anyone recomend a good starting guitar????

Re: Guitars

i would simply go with a cheap 6 string acoustic to start out if you have no idea of how to play at all...and learn from guitar tabs...

Re: Guitars

: Hey, I'm sooooo interested in learning to play the guitar for a Skaband, can anyone recomend a good starting guitar????

Yes, my dads friend Rod Cursey sells guitars called traditions. They are very nice and enexpensive, as a matter of fact I had one when I first started I really liked it. My dads friend Rod cursey has a music shop in greencastle Indiana if your have any questions please e-mail.

Re: Guitars

I would go with something relatively cheap, like a squire or a rogue for starting, once you get better, buy something better cuz you will need it.

Re: Guitars

Don't listen to em' man, Squire's are unplayable pieces of crap. If you try to learn how to play on something crappy with horrible sound, the only thing your going to learn is how much you hate your P.O.S. guitar. Always buy the nicest rig you can afford. Hmm... Fernandes makes some decent one's for the money, looking around a $300 price range for the guitar only, which is really about as low as you want to go if you actually plan on continuing to play the guitar. For ska sound, double humbuckers will be good for rhythm, give you that kinda full dirty phased sound that almost all ska bands use. BTW, ska has been done, so be original, come up with some wacked shit.
