"They don't make 'em like THAT anymore..."

New York's own Grumpy Ol' Greek George, the world's un-hippest (and best) guitar tech, has been doing hardcore woodwork restoration on two of my vintage acoustics. He's done with the 1951 Gibson Southern Jumbo dreadnought and is now finishing up the 1958 Guild F-20 "parlor" guitar (built back when houses still had "parlors"). These are exclusively recording guitars that are way too valuable ever to see road use. When people say about products of mid-20th century American manufacturing, "They don't make 'em like THAT anymore" - they're RIGHT.
