VGC 2: The Fender Lead Series

Today's subject is the Fender Lead series of solidbody guitars. These guitars, produced in the USA from 1979 - 1982/3 are full-featured dynamos with great sustain and tonal quality. The series included the Lead I, Lead II, and Lead III (all pictured).

You can have a look at the 1982 Fender product catalog page that I referenced in the podcast by clicking here. Be advised that it is a large file...I wanted to be sure you could read the specs. The coloring is a little off...may be time to tweak the scanner.

Also featured is a podcast promo for the DigiVegas Indie Podcast.

Please feel free to comment here or contact me at ceejay1964 (at) gmail (dot) com with additional information, stories, pictures, corrections, or ideas for future casts.

Today's background music provided by the Podsafe Music Network and 15 Megs of Fame, and includes "She Already Made up her Mind" by The Hamptons, "Second Song" by Ten to Never, "Not Alone" by Brian Buta, and "Just Like Me" by Even Tide. Please support these bands.

Thanks for joining me! Until next time...

VGC 1: The Harmony Rocket

Today's VGC subject is the Harmony Rocket, a fun and surprisingly versatile "student-grade" fullsized, thinline guitar that featured lots of features and variations. There is probably so much more that can be said about this model that I didn't get to in the show...if you've got something to add, or a correction to anything I mentioned, please post a comment or contact me at ceejay1964 (at) gmail (dot) com (forgive me for the "spambuster" text).

Contributing information on Harmony and the Rocket came from the following sites:
The Harmony Guitar Page
Harmony Rockets & Meteors
1967 Harmony Rocket
Thanks for sharing your knowledge with the VGC!

Today's underlying music was provided by the Podsafe Music Network and featured: Don't Harass Betty's "Your Love is Everything," Nuclear Saturday's "Wishin," The Hoolapoppers with "Phoebe Cates," and "Better Days" by Laurie Jones. Thanks!

Hi, and thanks for stopping by!

Coming soon: a new podcast about vintage and collectible guitars and basses. The plan is to discuss one model per show, but we will see how it evolves.

This podcast is particularly focused on electrics since I am not overly familiar with acoustics, but we may have special guests in to talk about these since they are certainly not to be overlooked in the world of guitar collecting.

You can bet that this won't be a "Stratocaster" or "Les Paul" only kind of podcast... expect to hear about and discuss some real oddballs and sleepers of the guitar collecting community. And I want your input! Please comment on the blog and let me know what you want to cover. I would especially love it if some of you experts out there want to Skype in to discuss your favorites.

I want to make this a community podcast, so speak out and get involved!

Thanks a lot, and I will be talking to you soon! Cheers!
