terrors. If you're not scared yet, you should be: terror
from the heart of Bavaria. German's idea of a folk guitar, with a
bolt-on propeller wood neck, goofie string trees and in the heavy metal

that have solid German spruce tops -- really good guitars.

improve their sound; the Schaller tuning machines keep them in tune. A
great value for 60s folk guitars at $400 each.

60s. Solid spruce tops, big figure-8 bodies, 26" scale-length, from
Sherwood, Silvertone, Orpheum and Kay. Straight-braced, and 17"
wide (although they did make some that were X-braced). Rich, thick
sound. Schaller or Gotoh gears. You can be Elvis in Y2Kay for
