Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster ‘Blackie’, 2017

Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster 'Blackie', 2017

The Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster is based on ‘Blackie’, the 1950s Stratocaster used by Clapton for a lot of his post-Cream work. That particular guitar is put together from a 1956 body and 1957 neck, with some 50’s pickups and one 1970’s. The Blackie version body is Alder with a gloss black urethane finish, and the neck is a quite comfortable 1957 style soft V shape. The frets are thankfully a somewhat taller Vintage style. For electronics, a set of Vintage Noiseless single coil strat pickups is used.

Gibson SG Custom Natural Mahogany, 1974

Gibson SG Custom Natural Mahogany, 1974

The Gibson SG Custom appeared in 1963, though originally as the new, slim double cutaway 1961 Les Paul. By 1963, Les Paul’s endorsement with Gibson had ended, so his name was removed. Featuring the now-familiar solid mahogany body, the SG Custom differs from ‘lesser’ SG models with bound neck and headstock, ebony fingerboard with Mother of Pearl block inlays, gold hardware, either a Vibrola or Stop tailpiece, and often three pickups.

‼Reduced‼ Gibson ES-Les Paul Alex Lifeson Signature Artist Proof #2 White, 2017

‼Reduced‼  Gibson ES-Les Paul Alex Lifeson Signature Artist Proof #2 White, 2017

he Gibson ES-Les Paul Alex Lifeson Artist Proof #2 is the second of three production proof models built, before the design went to the regular line. All three of these guitars were personally approved by Alex Lifeson.  Alex Lifeson is one of the most recognised rock guitarists, having spent his career with his band Rush. I am reminded of my high school days, seeing Rush perform in the school cafeteria on a stage made of folded tables; this was a long time ago and shows how dedicated Rush has been to working hard.

Fender Telecaster Bass Blonde, 1970

This instrument is all original, used as intended, 1970 model Fender Telecaster Bass in translucent blonde finish – the same kind of finish as on early Telecasters. Yes, this was white when new. This particular bass was clearly used for many years in smoky environments, before second hand smoke legislation cleaned the air in bars and clubs across the country.

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.
