Deals Still Exist for Vintage Guitar CollectorsWritten by Joey Robichaux
Continued from page 1
For instance, Fender Bullets, made in early 1980's, are student model guitars, but are American made and use parts found in Telecasters of same period (pickups, etc). These are great-sounding, easy-playing, and nice looking instruments. You can still find Bullets for less than $300 ... although they're beginning to gather attention. Note, we're not talking Squire Bullet Stratocaster-type model, but American-made Fender model (looks like a Telecaster).
Fender also put out a Lead series -- Lead I, Lead II, and Lead III. Again, these were an American made student series -- but are great playing, solidly made, and sound wonderful. You can still pick up Lead's for less than $300.
Gibson Melody Makers have already been discovered by collectors -- but there's not a lot of action with Gibson's Kalamazoo line ... yet. These student models are similar in quality to Melody Makers and Fender Mustangs. I've found Kalamazoo models for less than $100!
I haven't mentioned other brands -- Epiphone, Gretsch, Guild, etc -- because either their student models have already exploded in price or they really don't have student models. Stick with Fender and Gibson, stick with American made, and keep your eyes on lesser-known student models ... and you'll find deals that will likely join other lines in appreciating over coming years.

Continued from page 1
Great musical theater songs Baroness has chosen for this charity theatrical event are dramatically intense, touching, witty, ironic, and just plain charming. Baroness Elisa, who has performed on world stages throughout Europe and Australia, noted, “It is an honor and privilege to perform for this noble and important cause”. The intimate three hundred seat Crest Theatre in Delray Beach provides a perfect theater venue where Baroness Elisa’s charisma and audience connection can thrive. The Crest Theatre is located at historic Old School Square, 51 North Swinton Ave., in downtown Delray Beach. Theater reviewers raved about Baroness’ show: “The slender red-headed ingénue melts hearts of audiences. She is in every sense of word a beautiful woman, earthy, gentle, and comfortable with herself, and in touch with her audience. The Baroness is joined her talented musical director, husband, and Baron, Peter Gerolymatos on piano.” Ticket prices are affordably priced at $50 and may be purchased on internet through Ticketweb at www.ticketweb.com or by calling 866-468-7630.
