           Brothers from 1923 to 1993.  Famous for their 'National' guitars, they went

           influenced the sound of Country Music, Bluegrass, Blues and Hawaiian music
           through most of the 20th Century.
                Entirely and lavishly illustrated with over 1100 musical instruments and
            amplifiers and more than 100 artists who used them - this is THE
            DEFINITIVE COLLECTION of all the various developments, designs, colours
            and engraving patterns of everything produced by the Dopyera Brothers
            in their various companies throughout the 20th century - National, Dobro, 
            Supro, Valco, Mosrite, Regal and OMI.  It has them ALL!  It also features lap steels, amplifiers 
             and various National and Valco manufactured items for other Trade houses. 
             The book is concluded with an updated list of the serial numbers of known
             and re-discovered instruments - now in excess of 4200.  A MUST HAVE for

    1952 Les Paul that has a screw reinforcing a neck crack. When the customer originally
           brought the guitar in it had putty over the screw and the crack repair was failing.

                We often get asked  "where do these guitars come from" ??? or "who buys these things" ??
                So here's an interesting picture of the quite rare White ES-345 (that we had for sale for about a year)
                with both it's original ( c. 1964), and current (April'06)  owners.

  Some have complained about bad pictures.  If this is happening to you or your PC, let me know.  We have Macs 
  and the pictures are large and clear, so we'd like to know figure out why this problem is happening
An answer from my brother Rick-
By default, Internet Explorer will shrink pictures to fit onto one screen.
That's probably what people are complaining about. Usually, if they hold the
cursor over the picture for a few seconds, a button will appear and they can
click it to restore the pic to full size. I hate the feature, so I just turn
it off and always see the photos full-size:

From the IE menu bar, click Tools | Internet Options
Click the Advanced tab
Scroll down to the Multimedia section
Remove the check from "Enable Automatic Image Resizing"
Click OK to save settings

       For you who don't know, we do all manner of guitar repair and restoration.  We do most of it here but 
      also give some work to Dom Ramos -repairing and building since working in Dan Armstrong's shop in 
      the '60s.  We've also been a Martin Warrantee Center since 1985 before Martin closed down all 5 NJ Centers 
      because of a tax dispute between NJ and Martin
