I am getting this site up to a new speed. I have the Awsome Guitars Compamy sending me a lot of new equipment to review. They are the only company that has been trying to improve el;ectric guitar and bass for the last five years that I know of. How about a new volume and tone control with extra switches that creat an amazing eighty or more tones. They had sent me one of the earlier products that I insatlled in a Tele copy and and a bad Strat copy. Just blew me away. Now the own...

March 22nd, 2013

    I have been in touch with several manufacturers. I usually call because you can tell a person's integrity when you here a voice. E-mails can easily be taken in the wrong way. I have been asking certain company representatives {artist relations} where is tech going. In other words what is coming up next/what is new/are there new mind boggling on the horizon. Here is what I have been told. They have no idea. In the case of Pe*v*y (not to ...

Posted by crazyaboutguitars on December 23, 2011 at 11:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Bad news for the guitar world, Ed Roman has passed away. Details have not been let out as of yet. He passed away with in the past couple day's. I write this on the morning of DEC 23, 2011. I knew Ed well enough professionally to have his cell phone number in my cell phone. I became aware of Ed in the early 1990s. He was located in Connecticut back then. At that time he was one of the original "Boutique" Luthiers. To me he was the last of the old time guitar store hucksters. He could sell you ...

Happy Holiday's to all!



 I had to move to another city to help my Mom with my ailing Dad. He passed away a few weeks ago. He is not suffering any more of suffering and hopefully in a better place. So -- I will start a new on the Trail and Tribulations on starting out new in a city where I know no one buy family. The music situation should be close to comical. Already I found the usual. A  band I found want's to try me out. They told me they are one of...

Time For An Update 11-30-10

Posted by crazyaboutguitars on November 30, 2010 at 6:59 PM Comments comments (1)


  Here it is--The site has been on the Internet for over two years now! There has been nothing that would make me stop or delete it. On some months around five thousand hits are registered on the site. I still make no money at this. Probably best I don't. That should keep me honest on the reviews. I have been in touch with several of the big name guitar manufacturers again. As usual they just blow us off. One example was Boss / Roland. I was told to get any products for revi...

Starting A Fire

    I have been doing a lot of reviews of products recently and of coarse playing out with my dance / cover band. Leaving little time to put my thoughts in this Blog area. I have notice recently that the guitar company's have reached another level of stagnancy. Thank God they have Slash to keep things fairly new. Gibson is putting out a Slash guitar that is a copy of the guitar he used in G & R which was a fake Gibson to start with. So they are copying a fake guitar. How many ti...

An E-mail to S.C. and A Reply

Posted by crazyaboutguitars on December 16, 2008 at 4:23 PM Comments comments (2)

 I received this E-mail a week or so ago thru this site. It's a little on the negative side. After I read it a few times I realized this guy's thoughts were all over the place and I could pick it apart fairly easily. So, I wrote an email back in a professional state of mind. But either he did not want me to know his real address or he was putting in the wrong address on purpose. I am putting this on here as a reply and no I didn't sugar coat my reply before putting it on here. Your ideas...

Famous Guitarists And Collections s.c.

Posted by crazyaboutguitars on December 5, 2008 at 10:55 PM Comments comments (1)

     You know all those guitar magazines out there show "Guitar Heroes" guitars collections. Thru the years they keep showing the same ones. Like there is a limited supply of famous guitar players out. How many times have we seen Steve Ray Vaughn's stories or Jimmy Page or Eddie Van Halen or the elusive Jeff Beck. My God!  They (the guitar magazines) run these guys in a vicious circle. I know more about them than I ever wanted too. Hey! Eddies back on the cover of a m...
