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. You can browse through all the images from the category links above, or by manufacturer from the links below.

1968 402S Standel Hollowbody Electric Guitar With Case Bob Crooks

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO, P7A, CANADA

$3500

A very nice Standel 402S from the Bob Crooks Standel Company, the self proclaimed rival of Leo Fender in the 60's. This guitar has had two owners for its entire life and has barely been played. Very uncommon to find in this condition with only minor surface scrathing. The pick up selector switch does stick on occasion but works with a little persuasion. A very minor repair if you are buying this guitar to play, but we felt compelled to leave it as is to be original for the collector. These just ... more
