Guitar makers have advertised in music magazines such as Down Beat, Guitar Player and very many more. Some manufacturers advertised widely (Guild, Gibson, Fender) but many more didn't and adverts are few and far between. Here are some of my favourite ads out of the ones i've seen.

Peavey T-60 1979 Vintage Made in The USA

ORANGE, CONNECTICUT, 06477, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$499

Though it is heavy, like many Peavey products from this time period, players have found that the tones of these guitars are so unique that it more than makes up for the instrument's mass. This guitar is in really great ... more
