Welcome to my extensive Electric Guitar Website
My interest in guitars dates back over at least 50 years, since I retired I have researched many models 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.
As you navigate through my site you will see sections detailing several models such as my rare and unusual Yamaha Guitars section then there will be model specific pages. At this stage I have covered virtually all Yamaha Models, but have someway to go with Fender Guitars.
There isn't any all copying, redistribution of the work I do is actively encouraged.
I am based in Lancashire in the UK and you can contact me Email. Please send me an Email on any subject referred to in these pages.I am always glad to hear from anyone who has guitar related questions or subjects they want to discuss or any guitar information they want to provide.
Updates are frequent but for ease I am now listing the most recent on the home page as I go along.
