Wait..it’s not Tuesday night, and yet GUITAR SHOPPING has occurred! If *The Man* lays down a rule…I like to break it. That’s just how I roll. :D
I had the opportunity to make an unscheduled trip to Capsule Music Toronto today and saw some of my “holy grail” instruments. Or maybe I should just call them “holy sh*t” instruments!
Holy Grail #1 (left) 1968 Telecaster. Refinished (a good job too) so the price is a very affordable $4800! Holy Grail #2 (right) 1966 Telecaster. Original finish…and therefore more expensive ($8,500)!
Holy grail #3: 1930s Gibson L-1 ($3,800). Holy grail #4: 1972 Gibson Firebird Medallion ($7,000) - a limited run series of 366 units to commemorate the 1972 Olympics. My friend Danny has a Flying V Medallion…and it’s gorgeous! Holy grail #5: 1967 Rickenbacker 360 ($4,500).
The best stores often don’t look like much from the outside. But the riches within are overwhelming! :D
Center: 1962 Melody Maker. A vintage Gibson for 1000 bucks!
