El Degas

I have an El Degas GB22 and can find no info at all on it. Anyone know when it was made or the approximate value ?

Thanks

can any-one recommend

can any-one recommend a good amp??

Re: can any-one recommend

Crate Excalibur...awsome amp.

Re: can any-one recommend

Depends on what you want it for. A very good sounding amp with plenty of volume for home and small gig use is Marshalls' AVT50. That's my recommendation.

Framus 12 String Guitar

I have a Framus 12 String Guitar purchased in 1967. I was trying to determine what value to place on it.
The bridge has started to lift but should be easily repaired.

Re: Framus 12 String Guitar

I have three of these(!). My sister's Texan 12-string which I gave ner new in 1965; my Texan 12-string I bought new in Italy in 1968, and an all-flame-maple Texan 12 I just got on eBay. I think one of these, in good condition, should probably be worth $200-300 and be more valuable as time progresses. I am trying to find out about a fellow in Germany who is a Framus enthusiast and has lots of information on the older acoustics. The current Framus firm, although run by the founder's son, has no archival info on the old firm which went bankrupt in the mid-70s.

Re: Framus 12 String Guitar

I have a framus 12-string I bought used, in 1969. I am ready to send it to the shop for about $400 - 500 worth of work. That's not because the guitar has that much value but it is a sentimental favorite for me.

Here are 2 on ebay that might be helpful to watch.

Re: Framus 12 String Guitar

My Framus 12-string was purchased in early 1967 in Kansas City. I carried it all over Southeast Asia (yeah, that place),and I left it for safekeeping [sic] with a girl in L-A after getting out of the Navy. A bit later I came back to find out IT and the house had burned to the ground... never found out about the girl. That's what she gets for not saving my Framus. All that inlay was HAND DONE, you know... I seem to remember that the neck was laminated from 23 pieces of wood... thinnest neck of any 12-string. And made in Bavaria. When I get to heaven, my calluses will be smooth and it'll be waiting... later

Contact "Knight's Music", in Placerville,Ca.(530)626-0373
Ask for the owner Mel. He knows, Nokie Edwards who

of Mosrite. If anything he can give you some leads.

Re: Yeah they do, but....

: Does BC Rich make a left handed NJ series Beast guitar?

Yeah, but you have to have a dealer direct order it as a custom order from the factory. BC Rich doesn't up the charge for lefties. You can also talk directly to the guys at BC Rich and they'll make it for you.

standard double fat strat

i am buying my first guitar and i am thinking of buying a double fat strat. is there a difference between the regular guitars and a double fat strat? Any comparisons/info on the guitar would be very much appreciated.

Re: standard double fat strat

Double fat means twin humbucking pickups.
Is that what you want? I like my single colis in a Strat. It's up to you.

G&L guitars?

Hi!

I've been offered to buy a G&L guitar (a ASAT classic custom semi-hollow). I live in Sweden, where G&L guitars are rarely seen (we got no retailer for G&L in Sweden).

My quetion is: Are these guitars any good? I was almost set to buy a Fender Mex-tele, when I was offered to buy this guitar at almost the same price. What do you think? Should I buy it or should I rather go with a Mex-tele?

Re: G&L guitars?

Hi there! I STRONGLY suggest that you buy the G&L! ESPECIALLY if they're going for the same price!! I have owned a Mexi Tele; those things are good for beginners, but Fender's Mexican series a really pieces of junk (I recently replaced it with a USA standard Telecaster). I have never owned a G&L myself, but I have a frend who own the EXACT guitar you've been offered to buy. And I'll be damned if it isn't one of the sweetest guitars I've seen. You can get SOOOOO many amazing tones from that thing!

Please go to www.glguitars.com and check out their history (the company was started by Leo Fender, and is still independantly run). Listn to the sound bytes to make sure this is what you want. Skimming over their artist list couldn't hurt, either.

Alex

PS: Just remove "nospam" if you want to email me.

Re: G&L guitars?

Hi!

Thanks for your reply! Highly appreciated!

Well, the guitar I'm offered was bought new in US and brought to Sweden by a private seller. I have now seen, and played on the guitar and it feels and looks brand new. It's painted in a custom color (blue-burst) and has the F-hole. The seller asks around $1100 (wich apperars to be a "fair" price for a guitar like this in Sweden, where a Mex-tele classic series costs around $900 with hardcase, and a US Standard tele around $1800). Any comments to the pricing would be highly appreciated. Is $1100 too much?

Thanks in advance!

/Danny

Re: G&L guitars?

Woah... a Mexi-Tele costs 900 in Sweden?! That's as much as the US Standards cost in the States... The Mexicans cost about 300-400 bucks here. G&L guitars usually cost around 1200-2000 dollars as far as I've seen, so yeah, you're getting a fair deal on the ASAT Custom Semi-Hollowbody. Especially when you can get a piece-of-s**t Mexican Telecaster for practically the same price. I wish you a happy purchase. If you do buy the G&L, you probably won't have to buy another guitar again for several years. Plus it's an added bonus that they're rarely seen in Sweden, so you'll get to show off how pretty and new it is. ;)

Alex

Re: G&L guitars?

Yepp, guitars are expensive in Sweden. We are punished with a 25% VAT, wich makes already expensive products even more expensive. Just to give you an exampel: a gallon of gas costs around 5 bucks...

I've made up my mind regarding the ASAT. I will buy it later today. Your arguments are very convincing - and as you say, it's always cool to be a little different from the rest! Thank you! :-)

/Danny

Re: G&L guitars?

Well then, I wish you and your guitar a happy marriage. I'm sure you will be satisfied. Keep on shredding, my friend!
