Wanna Play Jimmy Page’s Guitar?

For all the Zeppelin-heads out there, now you can purchase Jimmy Page’s magic dust. These guitars (seen above) are Les Paul “Number Two’s” and both are played, signed, numbered by the man himself. Read here for more history on the two guitars being auctioned off

The Gift of Sound 
By Jenny Bahn
I’ll be the first to admit it: I don’t know anything about guitars. When I was in middle school, I tried to impress a boy by purchasing a black and white electric guitar of unknown make and model with the intention of learning how to play. Unfortunately, that didn’t really work out. My appreciation for guitars — and music — has never faded, however, and with the holidays coming up, I thought what better idea than to gift your musically inclined friend or family member a beautiful guitar. To help me help you, I’ve enlisted the services of Jean Noir, a singer-songwriter who actually knows what he’s talking about, to pick out three of his all-time faves available on eBay and riff about them. Here they are: 
1952 Fender Telecaster - Pretty much everyone wants one. Keith Richards plays one. Bruce Springsteen, too. Butterscotch with a black pick guard. It’s sexy. Tele’s are versatile.
Gibson 1960 Les Paul Standard - The 1959 is one of the most popular guitars ever and this one basically the same, but the 1960-make is what Paul McCartney and Jimmy Page played. Les Pauls have always been a little too beefy for my tastes but it’s a good guitar.
Any Silvertone guitar from the 1960s - This was a line of guitars manufactured by Sears. During this period they were exceptionally well-made and just cool. Later on, I think they lost quality which is why these ones are coveted by collectors. I was lucky to come into one by chance and it’s the best guitar I’ve ever known. And I don’t even like guitars.

eBay Auction: Bon Iver’s Whiskey Barrel Guitar

By Jauretsi

The idea of making a guitar out of a Whiskey Barrel is quite intriguing. The fact it was conceived by Justin Vernon (frontman of Bon Iver) is even more appealing. Here’s the best part, the guitar is currently on auction on Ebay through November 2nd. The baritone guitar (pictured above) is made of original white oak wood from a Bushmills Irish Whiskey barrel. You’ll be happy to know that the money will benefit The Confluence Community Arts Center in support of Justin’s hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Listen to the story in this charming little video with Vernon and his longtime friend, guitar maker Master Luthier Gordy Bischoff on how it all came together.

Chicks with Guitars
By Jauretsi
Years before the saccharin-induced pop music of Britney Spears, there was a time when girls rocked hard. Sure, the Runaways were set up as a pop group by a mastermind manager, but the difference is these ladies could rip hard and hit the right keys. We encourage all the inner rock chicks to be unleashed. Ebay has an enormous pool of electric guitars at great prices, including a brand new Crescent Blueburst Electric Guitar, with Strap, Gigbag, plus WARRANTY for $69.99 at a “Buy It Now” price. Go on, take it back to the old days. The world needs more female rock anthems!
