Epiphone Chet Atkins Country Gentleman

This is a truly unique Epiphone Chet Atkins Country Gentleman semi-hollowbody archtop guitar.

Dating back to about 1981, it marks a change in sponsorship for Chet Atkins, who previously endorsed the Country Gentleman with Gretsch. It’s flat action is very low and harmonics are warm in these very organic pickups. In fact, the bridge pickup was dead when it was brought in. It now has been internally bypassed to be a single-coil. Once it’s height had been adjusted to balance out well with the neck, it’s become a nice contrast of sounds, and practically more Gresch-y. (more…)

Robert Trujillo of Metallica signed Les Paul

Robert Trujillo of Metallica signed this Les Paul exclusively available at Downtown Vintage Guitars.

This fine guitar is on consignment from established celebrity signature collector Lonn Friend. Many other signed guitars we’ve seen were cheap crap without the signature. This is one of many signed guitars in our store that would be quite expensive, even before the signature.

'97 Bonnie Raitt Signature Strat

'97 Bonnie Raitt Signature Strat

This is the Bonnie Raitt Signature Model Fender Stratocaster. (not signed, signature model) This one was made in 1997 in the US. This is an ideal investment guitar for several reasons. First of all these were only made until 2000. Fender doesn’t endorse many artists, and Bonnie Raitt is still the only female with a signature Stratocaster in her honor. The body is made from light-weight solid alder, with a Vintage route, and Vintage style tuners. Very loud Texas pickups behind it’s white pearl pickguard. The bridge is a Vintage tremolo, with Fender-stamped saddles. The neck is a light rosewood with maple and a satin finish. The blue sunburst finish is pristine and appears new. This guitar shows very little use and it’s difficult to find it’s few small nicks, namely a small one on the edge of the end of the headstock. More photos and a video: (more…)

50% center-detent volume

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 in Any Guitar, Les-Pauls and SGs, Stratocasters, Woz Mods and Upgrades

50% center-detent volume Mod by Woz Feel a tiny “click” when your volume knob is at 50%. Turn your amp all the way up to your max lead volume and use your guitar’s volume knob to roll back to the same rhythm volume every time. The center-detent makes no noise and is subtle enough to cleanly roll past it when you need to. One-finger volume swells for example are smooth and don’t catch on it.
You can do this to any guitar.

1M extra-loud volume

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 in Any Guitar, Les-Pauls and SGs, Stratocasters, Woz Mods and Upgrades

1M Extra-loud Volume Mod by WozUnder the knob is a little variable-resistor known as a Potentiometer or Pot. When the knob is all the way down your signal is shorted to ground. When it’s all the way up, the value of the pot is still between the signal and ground, taming it a bit. Basically, if you increase the value of this guy, you let more sound out. You will get a louder, hotter tone at maximum volume. While it will still say “10,” your guitar will go to “11.”
You can do this to any guitar.

“Secret Fatness” Mod by Woz

The Secret Fatness Mod by Woz.
How would you like your Strat to have the thick high-output tone of a humbucker guitar without changing out the pickups? The key is combining them in Series, something Fender would frown on. Manufacturers prefer that your single-coils stay single-coil-sounding, but just as coil-tapping a humbucker will give you a single-coil sound, combining two in Series will fatten things up, doubling your output.
