Ibanez Back Catalog Archive

from Ibanez Russia via some website via TGP

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.

'70s Rocker Family Photos

Ever wonder what color Frank Zappa's parents' living room was painted in the seventies? Ok, neither did we. But that didn't make these old photos any less fun to look at. Other musicians featured include David Crosby, Elton John and Eric Clapton (pictured at left with Gramma Clapton).

The Worst (or Best?!?) PJs of All Time

from Jumpin Jammers via Guitar Noize

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.

Unconventional construction methods help set a very unusual acoustic/electric hybrid apart.

Beautiful playability. Stable under neck-wobbling, pitch-bending maneuvers.

Polarizing styling and construction if you’re strictly traditional. Expensive for a niche instrument.


Riversong Glenwood TS6


The first and perhaps most important thing to know about Riversong’s Glennwood TS6 is that it aspires to hybridize elements of electric and acoustic guitars. This is not a new idea—certainly not in the amplified acoustic era, where the straightest route to eliminating feedback is by reducing the resonant elements that cause feedback in the first place. Some acoustic/electrics achieve these ends by slimming bodies down to electric-guitar thickness. Riversong, however, sticks to traditional acoustic formula by making the TS6 a full-sized instrument. Its dimensions are a little bit atypical: the 16" wide body and 4 3/4" thickness are about the same size as Martin’s “jumbo” J body and the Taylor Grand Pacific. The pretty silhouette also echoes the curvaceousness of those larger guitars. Those similarities sometimes feel like an exception, though. At nearly every other turn, the TS6 very happily breaks the acoustic design mold.
