NOTHING says “Christmas” like guitar shopping at Toronto’s much-loved vintage guitar boutique, Capsule Music!:

  1. Wow…I had never even heard of this model before…it’s a 1981 Gibson Firebird CMT.  I like Firebirds enough normally, but this one is really interesting and only $2,350!
  2. Refinished 1967 Epi Casinos.  Yes, refins, but EXCELLENT refins!  And the price reflects the mods nicely at $1,999 - like ½ to 1/3 of the price of an all original 67 Casino!  Unleash your inner John Lennon!
  3. Cool vintage resonators!  On the right is a 1921 National Style 1 tenor at $2,100, and on the left is a 1930 National Style 1 mandolin at $2,400.
  4. TRUCK!
  5. Too quote David Lindley…  "if I had money, I tell you what I’d do, I’d go downtown and buy a 3-30 or two!  I’m crazy ‘bout a 3-30!“  (see below …) It’s a lovely Gibson USA ES-330 in blue - a rare colour even for this modern example.  $2,300
  6. Nice, but recent.  ES-335 in "faded” finish.
  7. I think someone boogered on this Boogie!  :D
  8. Hofner basses - paired with #2 above and unleash your inner Betales!
  9. 1964 Thunderbird IV.  $7,000!
  10. For my mate guitarlust!  A lovely lefty Les (Paul)!


The first look at the now completed prototype Giant Leap: Command Module Double Delay Unit! Two separate (and different) modulated delay circuits run one after another, one with tap tempo… and many more features! After spending about 30 minutes with this thing last night… I can say the options are pretty much limitless. Very pleased with this thing!
