I’ve always loved the old black and white classified ads in the back of vintage magazines. So when we decided to make a new t-shirt design for spring/summer, that was the inspiration. Available in the Store now. This one comes in Black or Navy and includes XXL for the first time.
Two years ago long time friend, Jim Heath, contacted me about a custom guitar. We went back and forth a few times and here’s what I came up with. A 24.75″ scale, neck through, 7lbs. 13oz. semi hollow body. Man, I love building these things!
From time to time, MB Wilson, founder of Embie Concepts, sends me the most interesting items from the past. Last week, I received this letter written by Bob McKeehan, radio station KCNA disk jockey, in Tucson, AZ. It was written to Slick Norris, who according to Billboard Nov. 12, 1955, was singer Jimmy Newmans manager.
Dated, March 25, 1955, there’s not an address number to be found on either the “to” or “from” address; simpler times indeed.
It kind of makes me wonder whether the daily social media updates and instant world news is better, or an annual letter and a weekly newspaper might have been the best, less detracting way to go? Thanks MB!
Recently I went through a bunch of papers and found this one that I picked up from a guitar lesson back in the 80’s. I remember my teacher telling me ”this is an important paper to memorize”. I kept it in my guitar case for a year or so and eventually stuck it in a drawer.
I like how it’s laid out, makes it easy to remember. Thought I’d pass it along.
