A podcast about vintage and collectible guitars and basses, mostly electrics and/or solid bodies. The plan is to discuss one model per show, but don't expect just the usual suspects; anything goes! I like oddball and sleepers just as much as the legendary axes, and hope you will enjoy the variety. Podshow PDN {podshow-516557ccc366a736e20f96f1f10fde0b}

    VGC 10: Valco's "Map" Guitars

    VGC 10: Valco's "Map" Guitars

    The headstocks may say "National," but these are pure Valco "Res-O-Glas" beauties! The Val-Pro, Westwood, and Glenwood guitars offered from 1962 to 1964 put a whole new creative spin on what was possible for guitar-building materials and construction. Not to mention, some of these models even offered a transducer-type pickup built into the base of the bridge! We're talking 1962, here...way ahead of their time. Although they had a relatively short lifespan in production years, these babies certainly made an impact. And if you can find one today, be prepared to write a fairly hefty check before you can take it home with you. But comparitively speaking, it will cost you a heck of a lot less than trying to score a 1962-1964 Strat, Tele, or Les Paul. And you certainly won't be blending in while on-stage. Thanks go out to today's sources, the article, "National's Map-Shaped Electrics" by George Gruhn and "National Westwood and Glenwood: '60s Alt-Materials Make Short Run," an article from Vintage Guitar Magazine's June, 2001 edition. Thanks also to the Podsafe Music Network for the music on today's show. The lineup includes "Getting By" by Kathy Valentine, "Married on Monday" by The Gentlemen Losers, "Wednesday Morning" by Slackstring, "Almost Friday Night" by The Hot Rods, and "Tauntaun Heat" by Tadago Pie. For links to these bands websites and to hear the songs featured in their entirety, please check out my other podcast, Opinionated Ramblings. And at the end of the show, don't miss the promo for the Musician's Cooler Podcast! If you're in a band, you'll find great advice, tips, tricks, links, and all kinds of other stuff you never even knew you needed...but you do.

Until next time! Cheers!
