This Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass Sunburst was built during 1982 in Fullerton, California and looking like it was used as intended.  With a neck date of April 1982, this Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass is an early effort to capture the original style of the Jazz Bass. The original models were introduced in 1960 as an attempt to capture the rest of the professional bass player market that hadn’t migrated to the Precision Bass.

The Eastman T59 V is a take on one of the most successful and influential of Ted McCarty’s innovations, the thinline, semi-hollow archtop electric guitar. Around 1957, Gibson was looking to update its product line to address a number of issues, one of which was the rise in amplified stage volumes causing feedback. While the engineering team is credited with most of the design, it was apparently president Ted McCarty’s idea to put a solid Maple block through the center of the guitar.

The P-J concept appeared in the 1970’s as bassists, guitarists and third party companies sought ways to extend the sounds of their instruments. For bassists, an obvious step was to give a Precision Bass a Jazz Bass bridge pickup, hence the P-J designation. This setup was immediately popular and has worked its way into many production and custom instruments.

⚌Reduced‼ Larson Bros Prairie State Steel String Brazilian Natural, 1930s

Here’s a real beauty! This is a Larson Bros Prairie State steel string guitar, likely a Model 425 with a OOO sized body, Adirondack Spruce top paired with Brazilian Rosewood for the sides and back. It is likely that the bridge is a replacement – the original would have had engraved, inlaid stars on each of the bridge ‘wings’. The Larson Brothers, Carl and August, began working for the Robert Maurer guitar company in 1893. In 1900, Maurer decided to retire, and the Larsons and investors purchased the company. Over the years, Carl bought out the investors giving the brothers full control.

🚩SALE • Ibanez S61AL Axion Label, Black Mirage Gradation

The Ibanez S61AL Axion Label is a slim double cutaway guitar with curvy lines and a fast playing neck. In contrast to the sharper lines of the Ibanez RG line this guitar takes more cues from other classic double cutaways. However, the reverse headstock, arched top and black mirage gradation finish certainly provide a modern aesthetic as well. The body of the Ibanez S61AL is made from Nyatoh which is often used as cost effective substitute for mahogany and it has a warm tone with full lower midrange. The flame maple cap adds a little bit of brightness and looks killer with the black mirage gradation finish.

Eastman E6 OM Steel String Guitar Natural

Eastman E6 OM Steel String Guitar Natural

The Eastman E6 OM is a warm and balanced sounding guitar with straightforward classic appointments. The OM or orchestra sized body is a smaller shape dating to the early 1930s with a curvy waist and more compact lower bout. This results in a very comfortable playing experience particularly in a seated position. The smaller body also requires less energy to get the top moving and responds really well to a lighter touch. Fingerstyle playing and light to medium strumming really bring out the voice of this instrument.
