    NGM - New Guitar Month

    Collected these over the last 3 weeks. There will be a couple more to come. I'm looking for an Ibanez JP20 (my 3rd one) and a vintage (preferably 1950) Gibson ES-175

    So far we have a:

    1961 Guild 'Johnny Smith' Award

    2000 Campellone Deluxe

    Ibanez GB-100

    It is very economic for me being left handed and Ibanez ignoring leftys, otherwise I cant stand to buy multiple GB models :-)

    If I count well, this is an average rate of 1 new guitar per week. Gotta talk to my wife.

    Congrats for these magnificient guitars.

    Some real beauties, there. Congratulations, and play them in good health!

    I am again struck by the sheer elegance of M. Campelone's work. Absolutely timeless!

    How does the Campy and the AA compare in sound? That would be cool to know what you think.

    They're dowels. For joinery.

    I did make that video but I'm having trouble uploading stuff to YouTube. My new internet will be installed within days, having been delayed for over two weeks.
    Plus I've got a million things going on right now, including buying heavy machinery in the middle of a machinery drought.

    There's literally 2 planer thicknessers worth buy-in in the country under 10k and I've just snagged one of them.

    I can let you know now, that the Campellone is louder and more 'acoustic', while the Guild is perhaps warmer or mellower, with a thicker typical Bop tone. Plus it has 60 year old spruce which always adds something special.
    The Guild mojo is off the charts, where as the Campellone feels a little clinical but it is a newish instrument.
    If I was sitting at home unplugged, I would play the camp. If I was recording I would play the Guild. Of course either will do both of those really well but I'm being very particular in order to give you an appraisal.
    If I had to pick one, it would be the Guild because it just has a more balance tone and I prefer the finger board. The Camp's fingerboard is very flat. It must be 14" or up in radius. I'll check tomorrow. The Camp's neck is quite wide at the sides which is maybe what makes the fingerboard seem a little flatter. The Guild neck is very nice though. A bit fatter than what you would expect from their standard Westerly stuff.

    I'll get round to doing a proper appraisal with pics, clips and sound of each, then a comparison of the two.

    It's the Johnny Smith Award with the pickup and pick guard off temporarily whilst its being given a good clean.

    I do like the look of acoustic Archtops with the pick guard off though.
