About This Site
Here you'll find all the information the site contributors have managed to glean including model/label specifications and examples, catalogs, and our forums.

This site had it's humble beginnings in the author's home directory in 1998. By December of 2000 it had grown to the point it needed it's own dedicated home and the Guitar Gallery was born and it grew exponentially. It now exists as an archive of the guitars our members love so much. We hope the visit is worthwhile, informative and entertaining.

The archives here contain the information our community has managed to gather. Much work and time has gone into this archive. In this section you will find specifications such as neck scale, pickup types, finishes and woods to name a few.
