You don’t see a lot of Sears Silvertone amplifiers out in the wild anymore, but there are actually two in this photo from 40 years ago. To the right is the amp I’m playing through, and to the left is a guitar case with a built-in amplifier and speaker. I received the latter for Christmas when I was in the fourth grade.
My daughter made this one-stringed instrument when she was 9 years old. I still treasure it.
A dandy Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones
I still own a bunch of these.
I took these pics at last night’s Brian Jonestown Massacre show at The Metro. Anton made sure everyone had a great time.
