From This Might Be A Wiki

I was surprised to see that the guitar page just redirected to guitar tabs, especially considering a keyboard entry exists.

As of now, the guitar list is in descending order of first known appearance. Not sure if Flansburgh played some of these guitars beyond the music videos. I think he mentioned somewhere that he borrows guitars to use in videos. I can't place the make/model of the acoustic guitar from They'll Need A Crane. -thevince 30 August 2011

A Mojo is in The Devil Went Down To Newport video too but I'm not sure it's relevant enough to throw in with the rest of the writing since it's Mono Puff. Thoughts? --Stormer

I totally forgot about that, good call! I think it's worth noting on the page, as long as it's specified that it's a mono puff song, so I'd say go ahead! -Apollo (colloquia!) 20:32, 27 September 2011 (EDT)

The Mojo is referred to in a recent email newsletter as a "Chessmaster". What is the significance of this name? — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 13:25, 29 September 2011 (EDT)

Chessmaster is the name of the guitar. It's because it looks like a rook, according to Flansburgh. I talked to Flansburgh at length about this guitar. In fact, check out this video, it's totally rocking! Chessmaster II --Wireless mike 16:17, 29 September 2011 (EDT)
That is really cool! I am jealous of your guitar replica-production skills. Like, super jealous. -Apollo (colloquia!) 17:18, 29 September 2011 (EDT)

I recall hearing that Flansburgh borrowed most of the guitars used in the videos. Was that possibly in the Direct from Brooklyn commentary track? -thevince 27 July 2012

What is this one? -OldpineboxTalk 16:42, 8 August 2013 (EDT)

That looks like the Gibson L1, likely the one custom made during the John Henry sessions. -thevince 10 May 2015
