(via Gibson has crammed a digital recorder inside a guitar cable)

Gibson has partnered up with Tascam to create the Memory Cable: a 1/4-inch instrument cable for guitar, bass, synths, drum machines and keyboards with a built-in audio recorder. Capable of capturing up to 13 hours of tunes, the accessory tracks to a micro SD card in CD-quality 44.1kHz/16-bit resolution which can be easily uploaded to recording software — should the need arise. Uncrate reports that the add-on will be priced at $100 when it arrives in the US on May 15th. This rate includes the 16-foot cable with a 4GB micro SD card, but we’re not seeing any official word from Gibson just yet…

(via Circa 1949 Bigsby/Gibson J-200 Sunburst Acoustic Guitar. … | Lot #46008 | Heritage Auctions)

Circa 1949 Bigsby/Gibson J-200 Sunburst Acoustic Guitar. Long thought lost, this modified J-200 was the main guitar for Western Swing legend Dewey Groom, owner of the infamous Longhorn Ballroom. The neck was built and installed by Mr. Paul Bigsby in the late 1940’s/early 1950’s and the guitar shows signs of a long hard life on the road in a Western Swing outfit…

Gibson Longneck Banjo Circa 1930 Kalamazoo, Michigan

Claims to fame: played in Hair at the Aquarius Theater on Sunset Boulevard Los Angeles in the late ’60s. Used to record with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.

While my dad was recording in 1965 at TPG Studios his van was broken into and this instrument was stolen. Within a month the police tracked it down to a pawn shop, where my dad promptly bought it back for $25.00.

Gibson PAF pickup
1956-1962
The very first humbucker and probably the most sought after pickup of all time, the PAF was invented by Seth Lover, then Gibson employee, as an answer to the problematic hum caused by single coils. Famously the de-facto pickup on Les Paul standards of that era, the PAF was the secret weapon to crush Fender.
PAF stands for “Patent Applied For”, as seen on the decal. Story goes that no PAF pickup sounds the same, but they all roar. This is probably due to the fact they were randomly stuffed with Alnico II, III, IV or V magnets. Modified patented versions were produced after 1962, marking the official end of the “Patent Applied For” era. Since then, countless reissues, clones and copies have been produced.
