  1. I've been GASing a lot lately for affordable, vintage American-made guitars, so I couldn't resist when this one popped up on my local craigslist. Behold the much maligned and horribly named "Committee", in all of its walnut splendor!! I took these pics as soon as I got home. The guitar is pretty dirty, smells like an ashtray and is in desperate need of a set up. The action gets pretty high as you go up the neck, and I'm hoping the fix is a simple truss rod tweak and saddle height adjustment. I paid $650 for it, which seems to be in the middle range of what these oddballs go for lately. I've seen worse ones go for more and better ones go for less, but who knows when another one would have come up for sale? I mean, c'mon guys, I HAD to get it, right? I'm dropping it off at my tech today to bring back to life... fingers crossed.
  2. I picked this up at an estate sale last week at a bargain price. It was dusty and neglected, but in great shape overall. I would love to learn the history of the "Nagoya Guitar Company," but leads are scarce. I know from the estate that this particular guitar was purchased in the early 1970's. Luthiers in Nagoya produced a ton of guitars for the U.S. market back in the day, under a lot of differnet brand names... so this may be a long shot. Any ideas?
