I hear there are two Apollo guitars owned by Gordon Bok for sale. Any interest?

Finally gave up on it huh? Calling it quits? Just a flash in the pan.........I figured as much.............

Does he have any of those promotional Gordon Bok Model fans that rotate and turn on towards the morning left over? They aren't bad even though they don't work at night. This could be a real chance for me to make some serious bucks off the Special GB model Amish-Australian Pitchfork Moustache Tuner but the laws have changed on Rosewood now and I can't get it cheap enough to make anymore of them.........***sigh***...............

Oh, definitely Bill, they really are.

That is what I think makes it obvious that Bok is giving up on the whole folkie thing. Plus, I think I may have seen an interview by him with the WSJ about the possibility of working with the Bank of America although I might be wrong on that............

HE'S NOT GOING OUT OF BUSINESS! He simply has more guitars than he needs.
If interested, go to: Gordon@gordonbok.com.

We have two of Nick's guitars and I say there is no finer at any price.

Looking at his website, his guitars look very reasonably priced. Compare his prices with those of English luthiers like Nick Benjamin or Stefan Sobell. Also fabulous makers.

Still crazy after all these years, eh Spaw ?

btw, not that it has anything to do with this thread, but there is a British trained racehorse over here called CAPTAIN KENDALL who is doing really well, has won its last two starts and IMO is destined for big things this year. I think of kendall every time I see the horse run.

Unlike his namesake, the horse has unfortunately had his balls removed :-(

Well, when you're going out of business you get desperate so I'd be sure he just didn't chop off 6 strings. I don't know for sure he would do something like that but if you recall he slipped those cheap fans through without a UL listing and the songbooks were not bound but in a cheap paper folder. He also tried to screw me out of extra royalties on the Amish-Australian Pitchfork Moustache Tuners which I honored him with in that special model. He went for more than contractually agreed.

So not saying he'd put the screws to you but............

"Sir, you are certifiable."

Midchuck is merely jealous of Catspaw, because Spaw invented Amish-Australian Pitchfork Moustache Tuners and Midchuck didn't.

Tell us about the tuner, Spaw. Does one use them to tune a moustache or does one use a moustache plus the tuner to tune a Gordon Bok guitar?

whatever the case, it's nice to hear from you, Spaw.

I didn't say Spaw was certifiable. Kendall did. I merely quoted Kendall.

On the other hand, I didn't say Spaw WASN'T certifiable. I merely have insufficient first-hand information. And I hope I never get it.

Stand down for a bit regarding the guitars; Gordon is still thinking about which ones he wants to offer. I'm sure someone will alert us when the right time arrives.

Get rid of all of them I say. When you quit something you need to make a clean break. If he wants to unload the fans, I might know a guy who'll go 15 cents on the dollar.

Gordon is going electric. Watch for the rock and roll version of Peter Kagan and the Wind at the 2013 Newport Folk Festival. Kendall Morse will be there with Pete Seeger's ax.
