You may have noticed my guitarnerd blog has been very quiet for the last six months. The reason is I’ve been working on a HUGE exciting project which is nearly finished… a book based on the amazing Maton collection of Wadih Hanna, who has most probably the best collection of vintage Matons in the world. It’s been an absolute honour working on this book and I’m really excited to finally be able to share this with everyone. I know I’m biased but it honestly looks amazing. The guitars featured inside are works of art. The final printed book will be ready in November but we’ll be starting up a crowd funding campaign soon to help with printing. (This is a totally independent book… no publishers or sponsors.) I’ll keep you informed as things progress. Cheers – Tony
My band mate Dan Baebler has made a mini guitarnerd doco about me some of my guitars. Enjoy!
Hi g’nerds. Sorry about not posting any guitarnerd articles lately… that trip to country Victoria gave me a flu that has absolutely knocked me on my ass. I’ll get some new stories up very soon. In the meanwhile, join the guitarnerd facebook group, as I’m always posting bits and pieces on there… (click here to join)
Talk to you soon! – Tony
Hi everyone. Hope you had a great Christmas & New Years. I’ve been on holiday for a few weeks, chilling, watching Columbo on TV1, playing guitar and just when I was about to kick start guitarnerd for 2011, my home town of Brisbane got punished by some massive floods. It was a scary couple of days, but luckily my house was ok. A lot of damage was done to the surrounding areas and the city itself though. I’ll get stuck back into guitarnerd asap. Stay tuned.
Cheers – Tony
guitarnerd.com.au is a site that delves into the nerdom of guitars and why people like us are obsessed with them. Every guitar has a story and with this blog I try to uncover them.
If you are someone who can’t walk past a pawn brokers without breaking into a cold sweat and looking inside just in case there’s a rare vintage guitar that the owner has seriously under priced, then this site is for you.
Feel free to contact me at email@example.com with stories of your own axes and I’ll try and include them here.
