When Alan posed the question "What are the blues? What do they mean to you?" the answers were in part something he sought for himself, to understand this musical form that may have been as ancient as the griots in West Africa, or perhaps as recent as the automobile, the airplane, and the phonograph (all of which made guest appearances in the blues). The blues had become a craze, like ragtime, which grew up alongside it, and it leaped from the bottom of the social order to the Astors and the Vanderbilts, who staged blues contests for their own amusement well before the rest of white America came to know them - from Alan Lomax, The Man Who Recorded the World, by John Szwed

OS Stella 12 String question
« on: September 14, 2016, 11:00:12 AM »
Hi Everyone,
It has been quite awhile since I have posted, but it's time to go to the place that is in the know!
Anyone out there who might be interested in selling a vintage Stella 12 string BBQ Bob Model?
If not, does anyone have a Fraulini or Hauver replica for sale?
Any direction would be most appreciated!

    If you don't mind sharing, what's your range of price? If you don't want to comment, I understand. I would recommend, searching eBay and Reverb as much as you can (I do it almost every day now) and you'll eventually come across a good deal, or even a bargain. I'm not saying this from experience, and I wouldn't predict that they are immaculate tone-monsters like the OS Stellas, but Harmony also made Stella 12-strings; there are a few on eBay now that appear to be in good condition, so there's a cheaper alternative to look into. If you really crave something like this, (which, let's be honest, all of us do!) just save up your dough and the reward will be excellent! Reach out to experienced dealers/collectors of these instruments and they'll probably have great answers for you (a lot more than somebody like me!). All in all, best of luck!  ;) :D

Why not contact Todd Cambio directly and see what he has or what he can do or not do in your price range?
