Series on John Lennon''s Guitars


Since mid-February, this website has been chronologically looking at John Lennon''s guitars, starting with his first 3/4-sized acoustic, up to this week''s segment on his 1964 Jose Ramirez A-1 "Segovia" classical. Lennon may not be best known for his chops, but it''s an interesting and detailed series that looks to have quite a few posts left to go.

from the M-Factor (blog)

This blogger set out to change the pots on his 1960s Supro Dual-Tone, with little electronic experience. Though changing pots is relatively simple, this is a nice step-by-step writeup, and it''s not every day we get to see the inside of one of these guitars.

SG-shaped Cake

We really don''t have much more to say about this than it''s a guitar-shaped cake. Enjoy!
