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