A few MIA''s, but overall a good list

Blender.com went live with the “28 Most Recognizable Guitars,” and for a non-guitar specific publication, did a good job of nailing most of the obvious choices.

There are a few oddballs, most notably Dave Grohl’s association with the see-through Dan Armstrong guitar – you guys have heard of Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, yea? Also skewing on the goofy side of things is the inclusion of Michael Anthony’s Jack Daniel’s bass, although I’m sure he’s stoked to know people still care. I would have picked Elvis’ personalized 1942 D-18 over his iconic ’54 or ’55 D-28, but that’s a judgment call.

Missing from the lineup were a few obvious guitars, including Johnny Ramone’s white Ventures II, Peter Green’s Les Paul Standard, Roy Buchanan’s Nancy, and any of the Beatle’s guitars. Steve Jones’ L.P. Custom would have fit in nicely as well, but we’re guitar dorks and they’re music guys, so kudos for getting so much right.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
