Todays guitar of the week is a 1968 Fender Telecaster

This week, David's Pick of the Week is a 1956 Gibson ES-140D...


And this is why:


"Today's Guitar of the Week is more than a rarity – in fact it is the only one that I have ever seen or heard of…

We have fully documented and photographed this lovely little guitar and it will be featured in future books on Gibson guitars.

FA. "What is the story with the little figure in the neck pickup cavity?"
Phil X "I've been a huge Wolverine fan since a teenager.  This figure was in many of my guitars before it became part of this guitar".
FA "We understand that this guitar was used by you extensively on the 2013 Bon Jovi tour?"
