Who is hosting this mysterious English version of Ibanez Russia's catalog library? We don't know, but we'd like to add them to our Christmas card list. The site hosts catalogs from 1971-2005 (though 2001 is missing), and many of those years have multiple versions. A must-bookmark for Ibanez fans.

We're crossing our fingers that our families still have one more gift to buy us this year, because we can't possibly live without these awesome guitar-printed footie pyjamas. They could even double as some rockin' stage gear for any slumber party gigs you have coming up.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
