VINTAGE GUITARS The ultimate guitar book GUITAR EXP


GUITAR EXP is not only for Christmas!
Are you into Gibson Les Pauls, Fender Stratocasters, early Gibson Flying V’s , Fender Telecasters. Vintage Marshalls? Or Celebrity owned instruments…and Jimi Hendrix?
Guitar EXP contains a host of these vintage and rare beauties that have never been seen before, nor in forums, blogs, magazines nor books. In fact all the guitars, basses, amplifiers featured in the two volume box set share the same preview exclusive.
While GUITAR EXP was in progress, I listed a few famous guitarist s to write a foreword.
I shortlisted two of them as the best suited because they are well known guitar collectors, experts and of course great musicians.
The others? I decided not to pursue .Although very famous they did not meet the above three prime requirements. No offence intended.
My top choice were RICK NIELSEN of CHEAP TRICK and BILLY GIBBONS of ZZ TOP.
These two gentlemen were kind enough to take time to look at Guitar EXP while the project was in progress and they were impressed enough by the collection of instruments featured in the book that both agreed without hesitation to put pen to paper and wrote the forewords.
So much impressed that they both offered to sign in person each and every copy of the SUPER DE LUXE Boxset of GUITAR EXP.
The Super De Luxe set is limited to 250 copies and many already sold and have been shipped Worldwide, This is a rare book and a rare opportunity to secure a copy
Once SOLD OUT GUITAR EXP will not be reprinted.

Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos)


Acknowledged in many other cultures, 'Day of the Dead' is a public holiday celebrated in Mexico and by people of Mexican ancestry living elsewhere, particularly within the United States. The festival today has spread all over the world and is often a three day celebration, where friends and family will gather together to remember and honour the dead, helping them along their spiritual journey.

Over the years, the celebration has moved from the Summer to the Autumn to coincide with the western Christian Allhallowtide - All Saints' Eve, All Saints' Day, and All Souls' Day.

Frances Ann Day summarizes the three-day celebration, the Day of the Dead:



We have a variety of pieces designed with a 'Calavera' [Skull] - a depiction of a Human skull often used in the Mexican celebration 'Day of the Dead' and the Western 'All Souls' Day.

Here are a couple of our favourites:

FRIDAY FRIGHT NIGHT!

Our Friday 'Fright Night' film choice of the week:








From the adaption of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' is the cult classic 'Nosferatu', directed by F.W. Murnau.
Due to copyright infringement, Stoker's heirs sued over the adaptation and won, with a court order being issued to destroy all copies. Fortunately, a few prints survived and were kept alive, making Nosferatu and 'Count Orlok' an influential masterpiece.






Here is our very own hand carved 'Nosferatu' ring in Sterling Silver, available in store and online:
