got my first guitar when I was 15 (so very long ago) and by the time I
was 17 scraped up enough to buy a used Black Electra LP copy from a kid
in the neighborhood to compliment my Lincoln LP copy. I had no idea what
I had then, but I know I loved that guiar just as much as my Lincoln. I
paid $80 of my blood, sweat, and tears for it. It wasn't long before I
bought my first Aria Pro II Cardinal CS-350, and from there on it is just
a matter of history. My guitar world changed forever!
models and information is always coming to light there.
love to see the gem you have found!
How The Guitar Gallery
has become what it is today...
years ago (about 1998) I became seriously curious about the company and
people that had made the guitars I loved so much. The newer ones made in
Korea were to me sorely lacking in comparison so I set out on a quest to
learn what I could about the companies that made my older sweethearts.
Inqiries became dedicated research, and then obsession. By December of
2001 my little guitars pages in my home directory had grown too large and
became it's own "official" domain and The Guitar Gallery was born. Contributors
and like minded Matsumoku enthusiasts came out of the woodwork. It literallly
exploded! Who would have known the name Matsumoku and all the labels they
were sold under would become almost household names. All the info worth
presenting was made freely available to anyone seeking it as most of it
was freely given by our contributors. We hope that in at least some small
way we have honored the makers of these fine guitars.
you'll find all the information the site contributors have managed to glean
including model/label specifications and examples, catalogs, and forums.
We hope the visit is worthwhile, informative, and entertaining, and most
of all become a part of the cummunity here.
