Re: Any one knows John Birch?

Yeah, I'm him.

That's my guitar, it was stolen in 1991.

You are in possession of stolen property, send it back to me right away.

Re: Any one knows John Birch?

I'm not saying I can be of any help finding him, but knowing when that picture was taken would narrow the field. I don't want to make any assumptions about that haircut.

Thanks, i have already talked to him, a very nice man and he was very sad for his guitar, he really loved her and was forced to pawn her up but could not get the money in time.

I do believe he is in South Carolina, in Spartanburg.

Re: Any one knows John Birch?

The guy on the top right picture at some later point in time ?? Seems like there is resemblance.. They mention the name John Birch on the page also. Not sure at all though!

Re: Any one knows John Birch?

Jay Dee is J.D. Inititials for John Diggins who built Bass Guitars for Mark King etc...Big in the 80s.I think he originally worked for John Birch.You can tell a JayDee headstock as it is based on a two finger peace sign.I'm pretty sure that
the guy in the Picture is not John Birch the Luthier.
I read an interview where he humorously said.Do you know I'm supposed to be dead.It would have been in the 90s.Apparently that was a different John Birch.As was another one who had murdered his wife.I think he would be much older than the guy in the photo.

Re: Any one knows John Birch?

Thank you all for your help, i posted this same thread in countless forums, just not guitar and it was worth it because in a photography forum there was a friend of his that contacted me and eventually gave me his phone.
