Does anyone have any idea what this guitar is? It's a dovetail neck, if that helps. I love her so much, I just want to know what she is

Thanks

Absolutely gorgeous, man. She sounds exactly like the guitars used by Tenacious D & Amy MacDonald.

I found her unloved, dumped on a wet bag of fertilizer at my local tip.

She's great though, she's warm, safe, and loved very much now

*bump*

Anyone have any idea at all? I mean, it's not epic importance, but I'd still like to know.

I love you, engine11!

Wow... bloody hell... 1935-1940! It's worth 100 quid!

Wow... just... wow. Thankyou so much.

Dont thank me...Thank Google

If you have the proper equipment you should put up a little sound clip for us


Found it laying by some fertilizer? Man, You're one lucky bas#@!d

Thanks.

What did you type into Google by the way? I typed "Vogue B acoustic guitar" numerous times but it came with nothing.

I'll record a sound clip soon, maybe tomorrow.

I think I just typed 'Vogue B Guitar' ...Maybe you should have it checked out by a guitar tech to make sure the wood wasnt hurt by sitting where you found it...It's a beautiful looking guitar. I guess you could say 'You found it in sh*t and came out smelling like a rose(I'm corny)....Have you put new strings on it yet?

Well, to be honest, the top has bellied severely. I'm thinking, when I get more money (I'm skint at the moment) I might take it to a luthier, and have the top flattened somehow.

Yes, I've definitely put new strings on it - I found it near the start of last year I think. It's gone through around three sets, the most recent being Martin strings. When I found it, it had five very very worn nylon strings on it, a few of them hanging off

I got it for £0.10

EDIT: SH*T!!! I just found one on eBay for £525!!!

One more thing EJD...Maybe you can talk to Jimtaka, LeftyDave,Chad etc. some of the other guys who know their stuff...Because if it had nylon strings on it(I'm assuming you put steel strings on it) and you changed em over to steel it might make it belly out even more? Although I didnt see it described as a Classical guitar I'm not very keen on these types of things and with a guitar like that I'd be asking some of those guys some questions.

Nope - the previous owners were probably just idiots.

Nylon string guitars have slots in the headstock, with horizontal roller type tuners holding the strings. The strings thread through the bridge and wrap around.

Steel string guitars - like mine, here - have solid headstocks, vertical tuners, and the strings fit with bridge pins.

Also I've seen no further bellying during the time it's had steel strings on it.

For all vintage guitars, do not put any gauge higher than extra light on the guitar. They're old girls and don't take kindly to people pullin' on 'em too much.

LP doesnt have to stand for les paul.. it can stand for.... lesbian porn.

It isn't even pulling, because I have a JLD Bridge Doctor in it, as you can probably see from the special bridge pins. There is hardly any pressure on the bridge or top, because the Bridge Doctor is taking the pressure and counteracting it.


EDIT: All I have for recording equipment is a crappy computer mike... it just doesn't do it justice. Look up Tribute by Tenacious D - my Vogue B sounds a lot like the guitar Kyle Gass uses.
