Olympic White 1970 Fender Stratocaster (consignment) SOLD

Olympic White 1970 Fender Stratocaster (consignment) SOLD

Here we have an Olympic White 1970 Fender Stratocaster in almost completely original condition. It’s been played a lot over the years, so the strings have been changed but aside from that, all the parts look stock. It has not been refretted, so predictably there is a significant amount of fretwear.

1960 Gibson LG-1 Sunburst (consignment) NO LONGER AVAILABLE

The LG-1 was introduced in 1942, along with the LG-2 and LG-3. However, the demands of World War 2 almost immediately stopped the production of the LG-1 and LG-3, and they were re-introduced in 1945. In its first release, the LG-1 had a brown top finish, but received a sunburst finish after the war. Production ended in 1974.

Project Instruments – SOLD

Project Instruments - SOLD

From time to time, I am forced to “house clean” when I run short on storage space. Since I can’t resist buying any vintage instruments things eventually reach the breaking point where I have to ‘thin the herd’.

These ‘project instruments’ are put on a shelf with the best of intentions…but many cups of espresso later I come to the realization that I would rather be out on my motorcycle and many of these projects will simply never be looked at.

Watkins Dominator Mark 1 V Front Amplifier Reissue

Watkins Dominator Mark 1 V Front Amplifier Reissue

One of only 100 built – the Watkins Dominator Mark 1 V Front Amplifier Reissue! The Watkins Dominator was bleeding edge for 1956, and its blistering 18 watts and two ten inch speakers struck fear in to the hearts of many promoters. The concept of the V-front is to widen the sonic field, rather than focus it straight ahead. Though it was rapidly pushed off stage by other much higher powered amplifiers, the Dominator was used extensively in studios during the 1960’s and was apparently the basis for the 18-watt Marshall combo design.

Peterson StroboPlus HD Handheld Strobe Tuner

Luthiers and guitar setup techs who got their start in the 1970s or 80s “cut their teeth” on the Conn or Peterson Stroboscopic tuners. The Conn Strobe-tuner was the “holy grail” of workshop tools, used for intonation setup on electric and acoustic guitars.
