SOLD!!! Ampeg Dan Armstrong Plexiglass Fretless Bass, 1969

SOLD!!! Ampeg Dan Armstrong Plexiglass Fretless Bass, 1969

Here we have an Ampeg Dan Armstrong Plexiglass Fretless Bass, built in 1969 likely at the Ampeg facility in Linden, New Jersey. It’s a full 34 inch scale with 1 9/16 nut width, and weights in at 10.34 pounds – this weight is one of the drawbacks of the body material. The neck is maple with a flat-sawn Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard, which at the time was very commonly used on quality instruments. There is some wear to the covering of the pickup, and the body has some light scratching, as expected for an instrument of this age. It appears to be in original condition, with an extra washer added to support the output jack – this is always a vulnerable area.

Sold! Larrivee LV-03R Steel String Acoustic Guitar, 2012

Sold!  Larrivee LV-03R Steel String Acoustic Guitar, 2012

The Larrivee LV-03R Steel String Acoustic Guitar is part of the Recording series, and uses the traditional Larrivee L body, drawn from the proportions of the Hauser style classical guitar. This gives it a very reliable, even tonal representation throughout the spectrum and plenty of volume when requested. The cutaway definitely adds to the upper fret accessibility. This example dates to October 29, 2012 and was built at the old Larrivee plant in Victoria, BC. It features a Sitka Spruce top, with Indian Rosewood used for the sides, back, headplate and bridge plate, and the body is bound with maple.

SOLD!!! Burns Bison Bass Red, 2012

SOLD!!! Burns Bison Bass Red, 2012

The Burns Bison Bass was a favourite among session musicians in the Sixties due to its long scale and a very wide range of tones, including the famous Wild Dog setting. Originally built from 1964 to 1965, the Bison Bass has an unmistakable look with its large horned body. Originally issued using the typical Burns scroll headstock, it now uses a more standard 4-a side Fender-esque headstock.
The Burns company was restarted by Barry Gibson in the late 1990s and has been producing reissues of the earlier Burns designs. This Bison Bass dates to 2012 and was built in Korea at a high-quality plant.

SOLD!!! Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, 1984 (REDUCED)

SOLD!!! Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, 1984 (REDUCED)

Here we have a Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, dating to 1984 and built at the Steinberger shop in Newburgh, New York. It uses the unmistakable headless design based on the L2 and is made of graphite reinforced epoxy with some plastic components (the top). The pickups are by EMG. It is in overall very good, original condition though – as is common with these instruments – the plug-in leg rest is missing. Fret wear is minor and it’s very comfortable to play, with a tight focused tone even acoustically. 
Ned Steinberger came from a fine arts background, focusing on sculpture, to create highly influential instruments, particularly the headless guitar and bass.

SOLD!!! Rickenbacker Electro Model NS Lap Steel, 1948

SOLD!!! Rickenbacker Electro Model NS Lap Steel, 1948

The Rickenbacker lap steel was possibly the very first successful electric guitar put into larger scale production, but Rickenbacker’s influence goes back to the early National days. Adolph Rickenbacker – then spelled Richenbacher – had a tool and die shop near National, and was contracted to produce metal bodies and resonator cones for National guitars, ukuleles and mandolins.
