    The 350 on the right (A6872) will be moving on as soon as I find a buyer.

    Wow, how can you even pick between the two!?

    What a perfect duo. One electric lam, one carved acoustic.

    The spruce on the L5 is beautiful.

    It’s a faded burst. Here’s the back.

    Those faded sunburst back with that kind of flamed maple are simply about the best. Combines real beauty with class that does not go overboard. A gem.

    1843, London, a Melophonic (!) Guitar by brothers D. & A. Roudhloff. With Brazilian rosewood of the highest quality on back, sides...and neck! Sounds beautiful.The Melophonic was bigger in the body that other guitars of that era, not hugely, maybe an inch wider and longer, and came with X-bracing - in the same year that C. F. Martin is supposed to have invented X-bracing. Arguments rage over who was the first. This is one great guitar. Sounds great for mellow jazz too. Originally gut-strung.

    Excellent. Are they ball-ends, or do you tie a knot?

    Tie a knot, definitely.

    I know you Euro folks often lament about the lack of American guitars available over there, but you have a goldmine for historical 19th century romantic guitars.

    The original trio of 80's vintage Ibanez time/modulation pedals. All bought new back then, now highly sought after. The chorus is the best I have ever heard. (If you like that kind of thing.) Basically two choruses in one. Put them both on very low and it's silky smooth without the warbling.

    ps - One of the great features about these full size pedal is, as you can see, the jacks are on top. Saves space when stacking them together and with other pedals, and makes switching pedal order a breeze without having to remove them. Or use just one, two, or all three.

    Great 330! I've never heard of the DIY "Kit." Please elaborate, thanks.

    I always thought the Starcaster was a very cool guitar. Never had the chance to play one so I don't know how they feel or sound.

    Wow, my tone control from roughly the same vintage also still works well!

    This left Kalamazoo in 1958 as an ES-125T. Various people unknown have done horrible things to it, and now it's more or less a TDC. Collector's value: 0. Player's value: priceless.

    Almost forgot my 80-ish Richelieu Golden Eagle long scale plectrum jazz banjo, complete with the original pick holder and sliding volume mute for quiet practicing. High-end long scale 4 string plectrum jazz banjos are hard to find in the newer market. When I retire from my day job this coming Spring I will take it apart and clean/polish the entire metal rim parts.

    I've found one of those mutes and it's on the way for my tenor. Do you use it much? Jimmy Mazzy gets great tones with it, but I'm not Jimmy Mazzy.

    Is it a Richelieu mute, or another version? I actually use the mute down in the downstairs studio while my wife sleeps in. I mostly use my banjo for theater gigs. "Hello Dolly," "42nd St," etc. I did one whole job with a dixieland band and it was great.

    Just be careful with the mute. If you put it full on, it can knock over the bridge if you don't hold it in place while doing so.
