January edition of The Vintage Guitar News and Views ,Greg's Guitars.

The Vintage Guitar News and Views January Edition.

As with my peers concerning the state of todays guitar and vintage guitar market I will add in my own opinion for what it is worth.(no pun intended ). What I see is a halt to the sudden and rapid rise in prices that mint vintage guitars will bring in, such as those we have seen in the last 3 to 4 years and a slow down or market correction,which we are seeing today, not that these guitars are worth… Continue

If your left handed....

The great dilemma running through my head, in regards to guitar playing, is one that I do not hear discussed very often. Let me start by saying that I am a beginning acoustic guitar player, who is left-handed. I began playing right handed and have become quite comfortable with it, with a finger picking style. The dilemma I remain true to myself, and learn to play left-handed, or do I go with what I have already begun, right handed. Most guitars are for right handers, and I know they are… Continue

Classical vs. Acoustic

Is their really a difference in an classical guitar and an acoustic. I've heard a lot of people say that they're totally different instruments. To me though, they seem exactly the same except the shape and the sound. Can you play the same songs with both, or is a classical for just specific songs? It does look mostly that people use a classical guitar for finger picking most, and an acoustic more for strumming.

Unless it does count for each person may like the the sound of a classical… Continue

Writing More Personal Style Music.

Hello Everyone,

I have been writing country and rock&roll music. Just recently I started writing on a more peersonal level. My first solo project is a song about my Mother. I have reread my words and realize that it really covers all mothers. So I'm calling it a tribute to Mothers. I hope that I can do some editing and restructure the wording to make since in three verses. My wife likes the style of rhytym/ picking playing I do on this song. I have more trouble getting the words… Continue

Traveling w guitar & new rules

Has anyone traveled with a guitar under the new rules since the terrorist tried to take down the Northwest flight on approach to Detroit? With the new restriction to one carry-on bag, it appears that if you travel with a carry-on guitar, that's the only carry-on bag you get to take. Has anybody tried it?

Gibson L-50 archtop

I have a Gibson L-50 in reasonable condition and it sounds great. Need the tailpiece strap button. Any ideas on where to get one and what the guitar might be worth? It's a 1953.

We all have had many guitars but it all started somewhere. That first guitar was the beginning or for some the end of a love story. For me it all started in 1975. It was my 9th. brithday and my mom and dad got me a brand new guitar I dont remember the name but it was a full size dreadnought. I loved that guitar and many hours were passed trying to learn to play it. Now my parents had the ideal that I could play any insterment put before me(not so) it would have been nice also if they would have… Continue
