Reunion Blues Vintage Guitars Road Show
In the fifth installment of Reunion Blues' Vintage Guitars Road Show, the guys hit up Guitar Showcase at Large in San Jose, California.
In this segment:
- We get to check out an early-50s Gibson ES-175 Electric Archtop which features the original specs, including a single P90 pickup in the neck position. Later models featured a humbucking pickup.
- The next guitar was an original Epiphone Model 4 roundhole acoustic archtop. As described in the video, this is one of the oldest instruments to be featured in Vintage Guitar Show. Check out how they determine its authenticity..ONLY PROFESSIONALS!!
- Another guitar featured is a relatively new model in the vintage market, an original Kramer guitar. But what makes this guitar special is the one-off paint job done by San Francisco artist, Mark Erickson.
In the third segment of Reunion Blues' Vintage Guitars Road Show, the show hits up Bananas at Large in California. Highlights include:
- A very rough '69 Jazz Bass with so many modifications - including removal of the binding, and the owner's name and SSN etched into the hardware - the appraisers get a little upset. Still, the bass' value will surprise you.
- The single prototype of Fender's Gold Custom Shop Strat. There was a limited run of 100, which was commissioned for NAMM's 100th anniversary in 2001.
- Near-perfect 1961 SG-style Les Paul Jr.
