Episode 84 – Old Cheap Guitars

This time around I talk a bit more about the Steve Vai interview in the latest Vintage Guitar magazine – modded & hot-rod guitars – Ibanez Jem guitars & Old guitars. Listen up!

  • Story about the guy I grew up playing guitar with and how he got really good over one summer.
  • Old cheap guitars that just talk to you and make you buy & love them
  • Identify slot head guitars date – pre 1926 or post 1926

This guitar was made after 1926 – see that the tuning peg post is above the gear. Pre 1926 slot head guitars have the gear above the post.
