 *BROWN BOX, new, by AMPrx
                  For decades, knowledgeable techs and players, understanding the 
              fundamentals of  tube amplifiers and tone, have utilized  voltage 
              optimization as an essential and permanent part of their rigs.
              Through experience they discover that their tone and signal chain 
              depend directly on supply voltage.
                   Correct supply voltage reveals the original tone fundamental, and
              that's the beginning and the basis of the signal chain. Keep in mind 
              that pedals and attenuators color your sound, they don't create it. 
              BrownBox is the first line level regulator designed exclusively for tube 
               amp purists who understand where their tone originates. 
                      Who doesn't like  saturated power tubes at more manageable levels?
                Why would I want or need voltage regulation? Vintage tube circuits
                are responsive to voltage changes, dynamics, tone, touch and feel 
               all change at different voltage levels, venue to venue, and that's 
               unacceptable if you happen to have a dialed in signature tone. With
               BrownBox you can choose to select the era specific voltage necessary
               for the amps true fundamental tone or you can Brown-down the voltage 
                from a range of safe reduction levels and explore other tonal possibilities -
                BrownBox does that and more. Make it a permanent part of your rig 
                 and nail your tone every-time......................$349

 *Vihuela by Manouk Papazian , '70s, 7 Course Vihuela by Manouk Papazian,
                     In addition to his production of guitars and lutes, Manouk Papazian 
                 also produced a very limited number of Vihuelas, the Spanish version 
                 of the lute and precursor to the guitar. These Vihuelas are designed 
                 to be tuned to guitar pitch with the exception of the G tuned down one
                 half step to F# and the seventh course down to D (D, E, A, D, F#, B, E).
                   The more modern fret board and nickel silver frets make this instrument
                  more easily adaptable to those used to the guitar. The modern saddle
                   arrangement also provides better intonation and adjustability than the
                   traditional saddleless lute style bridge. Beautiful Swiss spruce top with inlaid 
                   wood designs and top border with lute style pierced rosette. Ebony fingerboard
                   with Boxwood bridge. The mahogony neck has an ebony overlay with Zebrawood
                   insert and is fitted with rosewood friction pegs. The back and sides of this
                  instrument are made using Zebrawood cut and matched into a spectacular
                  herringbone marquetry. Papazian is only known to have made two examples

 * Lute by Manouk Papazian, 7 Course Lute by Manouk Papazian , new old stock

             of the G tuned down one half step to F# and the seventh course down to D 
             (D, E, A, D, F#, B, E). The more modern fret board and nickel silver frets make 
             this instrument more easily adaptable to those used to the guitar. The modern

                                                Before  After ..... 
                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
