Value going up ?

I just received a couple of Jedson catalogs on CD from a fellow on eBay.  The Jedson name was in use as far back as 1930!  I think this will help boost the "vintageness" of the Jedson brand.

I asked the provider of the catalog information if I can post some of the content on the blog and/or the jedsonguitars.net website. If I get an approval, I will post the interesting content.

I can tell you that one acoustic guitar model looks just like my F907 except that it has a tailpiece. I suspect that Jedson made the guitars in house back in the 30's but outsourced the manufacture around the time Dallas merged with Arbiter. Outsourced to Japanese guitar makers obviously.

As you might see from the recent posts under the "Post here if you have a Jedson Acoustic" topic, Ian and I have concluded that several of the 70's Jedson acoustics models were made by Yamaki in Japan.

just been reading all your "history of jedson" material, ABSOLUTELY FASCINATING, would never have known how the name came about ( similar to a firm i worked for WALTRON ...Walter and Ronald )
i left a blogg on your blogg site...about my guitar ...saying that i used to be a bit embarrassed...now i read that they were being made to quite a high standard,...no wonder people say it is a great sounding guitar, and now with the history and story behind it...i feel very proud to own it.
i can possibly upload some photos of it if you want any.( just tell me how)
thank you very much for putting all this on the web for everyone.
cheers ...mike ilett (UK)
