Any idea what guitar Bernstein is playing on his DVD? Nice looking piece of
wood.

Since music is a language with some meaning at least for the immense
majority of mankind, although only a tiny minority of people are capable of
formulating a meaning in it, and since it is the only language with the
contradictory attributes of being at once intelligible and untranslatable,
the musical creator is a being comparable to the gods, and music itself the
supreme mystery of the science of man.

I'd been wondering about this for a while and once I got the DVD spent
a bit of time craning my neck trying to see.
Guess its the Zeidler.

Downbeat July 2002
Peter Bernstein, who says he's not a gear head, was just looking for
the right guitar when he met up with John Zeidler. The Philadelphia
guitar maker offered to make one for Bernstein (who had previously
owned a Gibson ES-175 and a Gibson L-5, among others) but told him
there was a two-year wait. "I wasn't even sure because it was a big
investment and it was like getting a mail-order bride," he says. Then a
friend told him about a hollow-body Zeidler archtop that was for sale.
It was love at first strum.

"It's a very live instrument," says Bernstein, who buys John Pearse
strings (14-52) in bulk. "It has a lot of sustain and a beautiful
acoustic sound. It's the best instrument I've ever owned. It's in my
house and is the first thing I see every morning. It looks like nothing
else: a dark spruce top that almost looks like the color of a bass. I
call it Brown Betty. You have to have a relationship with it. You care
for it and it'll treat you well. If you play like an ass, it'll let you
know."

Oh. I better not get one then.



:-) It's a gorgeous looking guitar, big fat clean tone, and Bernstein
certainly doesn't play like an ass.

Actually now that I look at the headstock logo on the Zeidler website
I'm not so sure that's what he plays on the DVD:
<a href="http://www.zeidler.com/catalog.htm" target="_blank">http://www.zeidler.com/catalog.htm</a>
(maybe he got tired of having such an outspoken guitar)

No,you're right. That one he's playing in the DVD is a longer name and it
followed the curve ot the headstock. Buscarino came to mind just because
it's the right length, but that's not it, either. Doesn't much matter: I
think he has Special Finger Potion.

Kids, it's a Zeidler, unless PB is wrong about who made his guitar.
He's been playing the same guitar for the last, what, 4-5 years (post
L5 Wes)?

I actually don't think that what's on the headstock on his guitar is
script at all - there are a couple of points in the video where the
camera gets a pretty good shot of the headstock and all I see is a
banner-looking thing.

Anyway, Zeidler sadly died a few years ago, presumably he just had
different logo designs.

Yeah, that's what I saw - nothing like the Zeidler logo on the website, but
like you say, it could be as simple as a logo change. Either that or Peter
got his name embossed on the headstock in day-glo LEDs so he could pull the
chicks. Difficult to say ..........
