As the bassist with the Searchers for 43 years my great passion is guitars and after meeting Guy at one of our shows I checked out the site and was thrilled. I just love those quirky old instruments that might not be the finest or best to play but which are so iconic of my youth. It`s easy to love an old Gibson or a Fender but in the days when all we could get were Hofners and Framus just owning a guitar no matter how good or bad was something special. Like Guy I too have a lot of these fun pieces in my own collection which, by the way, was also the subject of a Guitar & Bass magazine feature. All the best from me to guitar lovers everywhere.
That’s a lot of nice info you give on this beatiful website. As an Egmond collector I am very happy with the egmonds and Rosetti you show. Did you know Gary Moore also played a Rosetti?? The Lucky Squire.
Fenton Weill Amzon
Thanks Guy, your site and your knowledge of vintage guitars is a credit to you. The advice and informatoin regarding the Fenton Weill Amzon project that I am undertaking has been invauable due to the fact that you are the only person I have found on the net with any knowledge of these rare guitars. Can you or anybody else tell me what pickups were origionally used or a similar modern equivalent?
What a wonderful site, so many great photos from when budget guitars meant more than just another copy Strat/Tele/LP ….and such a great story of a life in music.
All the best and look after those beautiful instruments,
Take Care, Wayne

A15 Washburn Explorer
Wow! what a fabulous and inspiring collection. I can’t believe you have a a15 washburn explorer. I always wanted one. To e-bay!
Hello. I recently aquired this marvelous ’68 Phantom-22. I believe it was badged as a Teisco, with the later style rectangular badge, as I can faintly see the ” ghost” of the original. It may have also been badged as a Kimberly, or a Heit Deluxe. Any info would be appreciated, and I’d really like to procure a correct badge. .
Also, if anyone would like to see pics of the rest of my meager collection of guitars,predominately Teisco-made , feel free to e-mail
