My interest in guitars dates back over at least 50 years, since I retired I have researched many makes of guitar. In particular
Yamaha, Fender and Burns and to a lesser extent Westone Guitars.
I welcome E-mails on any guitar related matter, will do my best to help with any queries and also happy to receive any information opinions or corrections on the models I cover.
Updates are frequent but for ease I am now listing them on the home page as I go along. Please bear in mind that the price database on the
guitar information pages is updated at least weekly and often more frequently than that.
