Gallery Site Overview and how YOU can help
Those of you that would
like to help, please read on!
we are in desperate need of is catalog/slick scans that cover exact specifications
for the models we are trying to document in the "Model/Label Specs" section.
Naturally the obvious such as "2V, 2T, 3-Way" is easy to see in what pics
are available. What is more difficult to confirm is woods, colors/finishes
available, years offered, type of pickups, type of nut, and the like that
only a catalog or slick will confirm. Bear in mind in order to be positive,
although we would love to, we cannot take something for gospel without
sime kind of confirmation. Our objective here is to be as accurate as possible
as it makes little sense to put this much effort and time into something
if we don't intend to do it right to start out with.
ideal would be color scans of at least 400 dots per inch at 16-bit color
or better, BUT, beggars can't be choosers and we will gratefully accept
anything you can offer to compliment this effort. We are able to shrink
an image without much loss in quality/legibility but enlarging tends to
smear or blur an image so the larger the better. Color photocopies would
also work but do not scan well at times, but is ALWAYS is better than nothing.
know many of you have accumulated information on these wonderful instruments
(sometimes through great effort), and we urge you to share this knowledge
with each other. Also, many people have e-mailed us with questions we could
not possibly answer. We will politely re-direct all general guitar questions
back to the site and the Message Board. We're hoping more of you with a
passion for these guitars will set up a login on the board and make use
of it. We've noticed a lot of people cruise the board, so why not create
a login and get the board moving?
you can drop us a note with problem reports such as broken links or missing
pages/images, (or even drop us a note to say thanks if you've found the
site and information useful or enjoyable).
that any general guitar questions be posted on the message
board. Unfortunately we are unable to answer any guitar related questions
you get something out of the site, that's good! If you can give something
back, that ROCKS! If you can help out we will eternally grateful. If the
contributions are for pics or catalog scans you'll be duly credited for
them. Any help is appreciated!

Just so it's said:
We don't recieve any compensation
for ads, endorsements, or the like. If we provide links to or endorse other
sites, including commercial sites, we do so because we choose. You won't
see any annoying banner ads or pop-up windows here! Yuck! We want this
to remain an independent project and would rather shut it down than "go
commercial". We will never ask for money directly from you, and only accept
small donations on rare occasion to help cover site costs. We do this because
weI want to! The only other contributions we will accept are for content,
and yup, that's a hint. =] We do reserve the right to determine what content
is appropriate and acceptable, meaning we can't very well post pictures
of people flipping the bird, in excessive states of undress, or language
not acceptable for public use. Kids come here too, and the last thing we
need is some angry parent on our backs because his child learned a "new
word" here. =] Please don't send us links to sites that contain questionable
material as mentioned above. We cannot use them. Search engines will see
this and censor us, or possibly even delete us from their database for
that. We are trying very hard to keep the content of this site as appropriate
as possible for all who visit, and we have to keep everyone in mind. We
hope you understand.
