It‘s Punk, it‘s sooo cool ... where‘s the head shaking emoji?
Alright, I think I’ve got the mystery 71 TA thing figured out. I’m partially wrong but I’m pretty sure I’m right he didn’t hand scrape it and that’s from playing as he does and what he wears. To be honest I don’t care for the look either. But I loved Op Ivy back in the day.... Sound System.
You’ve got to be right and that would explain the natural color as well. It took me the below photo zoomed in to realize it.
Black paint over the binding, as well as being sprayed with the knobs left on, then removed. Andrew Griffin with the win on this one.
Neil Finn (FleetwoodMac) if he hasn't already been mentioned.
I know some folks like the relic thing.
That's cool . Personally It just isn't me. Not my thing. I actually feel bad when I get a ding on one of my guitars or some of the finish comes off. I know that overtime there's going to be a certain amount of wear and I can accept that, but I try to take really good care of my guitars to try to preserve their beauty.
Yeah, I was already corrected by jay_mci. Sorry Tim!!
Does anyone know why if his long time gretsch guitar was a country club then why did gretsch do it as an electromatic series signature model, why not a pro series based around the country club?
I'm not a relic person either well not to that degreee, I like mildly warn with the paint faded or flattened and worn through in bits but not dents/damaged/paint flaking off.
I'm not an expert, but since Mr. Armstrong made his name as a punk, and few punks have much money, it would seem reasonable to offer a punk inspired guitar at a lower price point. I have the G5191 and I think it's a great guitar, even though I'm no punk and play in a more folkie manner.
I did kinda think along those lines, I have heard about a few musicians using that theory on their signature models.
Will the target customers, e.g. Punks, buy a Proline for around 3000 bucks? I guess, most won’t
I seem to remember the TA Electromatic was not exactly a budget offering. About 14/1500 Euros in Europe, and that was 10 years ago. About the same time I bought a new ‘50s CV Tele for €330 at Thomann. Crazy...
Most of us dont buy brand new pro line guitars. I just bought a 2015 setzer hotrod and it cost $1100. It will need some work, but I like that stuff
you prob wouldnt like my 2015 G6120SHBK
It still costs 1350€ in Germany, if you can find one. So yes, it‘s strangely overpriced
I recognize that one from online. It’s hard to forget. What’s your plan for it? I don’t vision you leaving the pickups as it.
Mud switch, Filtertrons, B3 - looks like a Pro-line 6131 Jet Firebird, not an Electromatic (which would have a B5, tone pot, and blacktops...)
Nice. Very tricky guitar, disguising itself with an "Electromatic" label.
As pointless as music . . . Just to enjoy something on ones own terms.
