Melancon Pro Artist T Trans White, 2007

Melancon Pro Artist T Trans White, 2007

The Melancon Pro Artist T is built by Gerard Melancon, who works out of Thibodaux, Louisiana and combines the elements of a Tele and a Strat, ‘Like a 57 Chevy with power steering and power brakes!’ Melancon grew up with lots of great Cajun and country music both in his family and in the surrounding area, gigged with a number of rock bands and played sessions before gradually shifting to guitar building. He now builds many custom, high quality electric guitars with excellent finishes.

Fender Stratocaster HardTail Black, 1973

Fender Stratocaster HardTail Black, 1973

This Fender Stratocaster guitar features the classic finished one piece Maple neck, with the new from 1971 3-bolt MicroTilt neck and hex-key ‘Bullet’ truss rod adjuster at the head. The MicroTilt and Bullet adjuster are extremely practical features, allowing rapid adjustments to the guitar’s setup, without disassembling it. Many earlier Fender models have damaged pickguards from truss rod adjustments with the neck on – a flat screwdriver would frequently be used and dig into the pickguard.

SOLD!!! Strandberg Boden USA 8 String Guitar, 2012

SOLD!!! Strandberg Boden USA 8 String Guitar, 2012

Here we are looking at an early Strandberg Boden USA built 8 string guitar with a thin translucent blue stain finish. This instrument is apparently one of the earliest Strandberg Bodens built in the USA, and as such it has no serial number. The Strandberg Boden design is quite flexible and allows Strandberg to quickly configure a guitar for pretty much any number of strings. In this case, there are eight, in a ‘Hard Tail’ format.

Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail Black, 1975

Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail Black, 1975

The Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail Black was produced in tandem with its much better known brother, but it was never as popular as the trem bridge version. This version appealed mostly to players who wanted the extra sustain, snap and ‘spank’ from a fixed bridge – as with a Telecaster. The Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail was finally discontinued in 2010 due to low sales. Here we have a Rosewood fingerboard Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail dating to 1975, and built at the Fender plant in Fullerton, California.
