Fasan Holiday Guitar from 1968 with incredible "finish"

guitarz.blogspot.com:






I love the look of this German made Fasan Holiday. There is nothing better than fake plastic trying its best to look like fake wood. In a fake news world this guitar should get all the headlines. The metal embossed pickguard, and a well aged tremolo only add to the character of this late 1960s beauty.

Currently listed for $500 Canadian

Ultra Rare1967 Bigsby Condor Prototype. One of only Only 3

guitarz.blogspot.com:







There's a lot that can be said about this 1967 Bigsby Condor Prototype. But, like the seller, I really don't know where to start. He has this information though, which is a bit more than I could muster up:

"1967 Bigsby Condor Prototype Experimental Guitar, only 3 made, was to be called the Condor, one was given to Barney Kessel, the other was given to Howard Roberts, this one sat in Milwaukee since then, Paul Bigsby may have worked on this-no way to know, the pots are 1967, Paul died in 1968, Hammond was contacted for the electronics, and the work was contracted out to Gibbs Electronics in Milton Wisconsin, Natural finish, Rosewood fretboard, the guitar weighs 11 lbs. - 0.9 oz., biggest volute & headstock on Earth !!, huge neck profile, the guitar has been sitting for almost 50 years, it has not been tested, everything is in very good condition, don't miss this once in a lifetime chance to get an extremely cool & unique collectors item, has the original fancy heavy duty hard case."




The first thing I noticed was the way the strings break at the bridge at a sideways angle. I've never seen another guitar do that. I wonder how effective it is.

Currently listed at $3295 U.S.

Sauvage OPM1 Guitar made from one piece of 100 year old Olive ash.

guitarz.blogspot.com:






I think I'm in love.

There is little to say here that the pictures cannot say for themselves.

This Sauvage OPM1 ( One Piece Master ) is everything that is right with modern guitars as far as I'm concerned. Slightly retro, slightly modern, and wholly original.
