All describtions and videos for each month , Jan. to Sep. in 2017 will be available soon.
The guitars which are most associated with preWW2 Country Blues are the Oscar Schmidt "Stellas". In relation to this fact, i want to create a section "Stellas and the Blues"
when i started the vintagestellaguitars.com
website. I wanted to write something like " what guitar played Mr X" back in the 20s/30s. But this is very difficult to do and impossible in most of the cases. Too little is known.
And so i was thinking for a long time what to do in this section. Now i decided to do something called "The Guitar of the Month". An in detail describtion of one instrument per month will be posted. There will be video available, on which you can hear and see the instrument. A full song, a good one for the guitar, will be performed. Most of the guitars will be Stellas, but not all of them, some will be for sale , some not, and most of the songs will be blues songs, but not all of them. I try to post some historical facts, if known, about the songs, the original artists and the guitars as well.
