Gretsch’s “Golden” Tenors
Tenor guitars were popular in the ’20s, when musical tastes motivated a move away from the banjo. But major companies were still making them in the ’50s and early ’60s, when the electric guitar was establishing itself as a key part of the new voice of popular music. By Edward Ball

Behind The Banner
In 1942, Gibson conceived the acoustic models that would become the backbone of its flat-top line until the ’70s. Recognized thanks to their “banner headstock,” the wartime instruments have a few unusual appointments that warrant a closer look. By A.R. Duchossoir

Drew Zingg
Here, There, Everywhere
A household name in the music industry, his career was jump-started when he signed with Steely Dan as lead guitarist in the ’90s. Today he’s busy on several fronts and a solo CD is in the works. By Ann Wickstrom

The Martin 0-28K
The exotic figuration of Hawaiian koa wood has a visual appeal that matched the exotic sound of Hawaiian music in the 1920s. And Koa guitars played a large role in Martin history, including introducing steel strings to the brand. By George Gruhn and Walter Carter

The Supertone H-2294
It’s hard to imagine, but the electric guitar was not an overnight success. Part of the reason was many early electric guitars did not sound good. Ironically, today, that makes them fascinating. Here’s a case in point. By Michael Wright

The Carvin V440
In the ’80s, electric instruments were marketed in all sorts of oddball shapes and colors. Carvin entered the fray in ’84 with its V220, followed the next year by this bass. By Willie G. Moseley

The Supro “Model 24”
Even if no big-name artist had ever played through the mid-’60s Supro Model 24 (like Jimmy Page did!), it’s still one of the hippest-looking and coolest-sounding combos on the planet.
