My old Firebird smelled like bongwater for the first three months I had it.

Looks great dots. Never realised the grain was visible through the paint on these models.

Any idea what brand the soapbars are?
On the GT Toronado the pickups were Angry Duncans.

This guitar looks sweet. I always wonder where all these weird Fender models went. Are they under a bed somewhere? Did all the collectors grab them? Whenever I see somebody playing a Fender out it's usually something very standard. Guitars I use to see in person, in shops, and even on eBay have really dried up. Where the hell did they go?

Like all the Performer models? I'd love one of those, possibly the most unique Fender ever made.

I been to HOG years ago, when I went to D-Day at Rochester. It's the greatest guitar shop I've ever been to. My homie who went to U of R was like "You want to go to that crazy place with the commercials?' I was like "wtf are you talking about, I want to go to the House of Guitars." He then told me about all their whacky commercials that come on TV. The next day we got really lost driving there through downtown and finally found it, it really is just a house on a normal looking street as you know. I wish there was a HOG in every major city but it's a family run joint, with a great philosophy to never clearance anything, just accumulate it until it becomes popular...

In NYC we used to have all these cool shops around 48th street and in the Village. Stores crammed with guitars and pedals. They don't really exist anymore.

There used to be places like that here as well.
One shop was like the downstairs of a guy's house, the back room was floor to ceiling with old amplifiers, stuff like WEM, Carlsbro, HH, Selmer, Sound City...
The front guitars and pedals. I got a Shin-Ei fuzz from there before they became popular, he used it as a door stop to wedge the door open in summer.
It was the type of place that sold tape for WEM Copycats and there'd always be guitars like Westbury and Westone hung up on the walls.

Always open to a trade in as well.

I miss those places.
The only shops we seem to have now are the places that sell all the generic stuff and they aren't interested in trades unless it's something popular.

yeah, those are amazing and so very un-fender, i love it.


yeah, jcyphe, i have no idea what happened to all of these and other now-rare guitars went. it felt like supersonics, cyclones, and toronados were everywhere for about five or six years, and now you can't find them to save your life. i guess it's cyclical as back then the options for jags and mustangs weren't all that great if you could find them new. at least the vintage ones weren't stupid expensive back then either like they are now.

These new hardtail Mustangs and Duosonics will be sought after in a couple years as they are already discontinued as far as I know.
