Magnatone Guitars!

New for Fall 2013, a complete guide to Magnatone guitars and the stories behind them!

1938-1960 Steel Guitars

1956-1963 Bigsby/Barth Era

1964-1966 Starstream Era


Steve Evans of Jacksonville Guitar Center in Jacksonville, Arkansas contributed these fantastic pictures of some really nice early era guitars and amplifiers. His pictures and descriptions of these amps helped to further shape the history of pre-1950s amps. Details about them are found at this history of 1937-1947 Dickerson Amps.

These are the nicest examples of the early Dickerson and Fators amps that I've seen.
