Some of the Superbowl halftime performances since 2000 have had some awesome guitars…except Madonna’s. Zero guitars in her show. She doesn’t need real musicians I guess! I hope tonight’s performance shows actual musicians playing actual instruments at some point.
bought a guitar. Get your mind out of the gutter. I was on a business trip a few years ago and it spanned a weekend as trade shows often do. It was in the wonderful world of Orlando. Ok…Orlando isn’t even close to crazy… I peeked at the local Craigslist and noticed a 1959 Les […]

Not only am I a vintage guitar collector and guitar player, but my real job is marketing – so I think infographics are cool. They are intended to convey a lot of ideas and information in a dense, graphically oriented way. I came across this entertaining infographic about classic guitars which is also a poster […]
