Spector USA Forte 4 Bass Black, 2015

Spector USA Forte 4 Bass Black, 2015

The Spector USA Forte 4 bass brings back the early highly innovative Spector basses seen at The Twelfth Fret and in the hands of many pro players in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Stuart Spector began building basses with Alan Charney about the same time as The Twelfth Fret, and soon connected with Ned Steinberger – all members of the Brooklyn Woodworker’s Co-op. Steinberger, fresh from a furniture design course, took Spector’s neck-through construction and added a unique and very comfortable curved body. That curved body became one of the hallmarks of Spector designs.

Fender Jazz Bass Natural, 1973

Fender Jazz Bass Natural, 1973

The Fender Jazz Bass made its appearance in 1960 as Fender’s second major bass design after the two versions of the Precision Bass.  Targeted towards the Jazz players still using acoustic instruments, the Jazz Bass offered a punchy, focused tone and a narrow fast fingerboard. Offered with either a Maple or Rosewood fingerboard, this instrument was built until 1981 when it was replaced by the Standard Jazz Bass. The Fender Jazz Bass uses the same proven and highly reliable design concept as other Fender instruments – a Maple neck bolted to an Ash or Alder body.

Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

Gibson Flying V 2017 T Ebony NOS

Originally released in 1958 the Flying V introduced a radical and futuristic body shape which became an iconic staple of rock and roll and heavy metal! The Gibson Flying V 2017 T pays tribute to design features that became common place through the 70’s while using alternate woods such as Grenadillo for the fretboard. The Gibson Flying V 2017 T uses a large double wing mahogany body attached to a slim taper mahogany neck, which is very fast playing with the ultimate access to the upper frets due to the body design. There is really no body mass getting in the way of your hand when reaching for the highest notes.

This Gibson Les Paul Studio T, “new old stock” from 2017 features a fast playing slim taper neck and a modern weight relieved body for a lighter instrument and enhanced resonance. The two humbuckers used on the Gibson Les Paul Studio T are the classic 490R at the neck and 498T  in the bridge position. These are a bit hotter than some other Gibson humbuckers, and can really push the front end of an amp for searing crunch and sustain. The classic two volume and two tone control layout adds independent coil tapping for the pickups so you can get single coil style sounds for more tonal versatility.

The Gretsch 6120DSW Nashville reproduces the 1955 6120 models whose popularity was led by Chet Atkins.  These are named Nashville because the license agreement with Atkins lapsed in 1980 with the end of Gretsch production.  Atkins signed a new agreement with Gibson in 1981,  and in 2007 Gretsch was able to renew the relationship.  The Gretsch 6120DSW Nashville  model,  with a few changes – primarily the Chet pickguard, Gold Bigsby with vintage handle, aluminum vs brass nut  and pickups by TV Jones rather than Seymour Duncan – is now called the G6120T-55 Vintage Select Edition ’55 Chet Atkins®.  The core of the guitar and other hardware are the same.

The Schecter E1 SLS Elite is Schecter Guitar Research’s take on the outrageous but instantly recognisable Gibson Explorer style body shape, with some influences from the Ibanez Iceman in the mix. This guitar shape basically screams rock and roll! Their version makes some subtle aesthetic changes to the silhouette but the major differences are in the feature sets and ergonomics. The body is made of swamp ash which is generally a fairly light weight wood. That is important for maintaining a comfortable playing weight with a guitar as large as this.

Gibson R8 Les Paul Tom Murphy Aged Sunburst, 2002

The Gibson R8 reproduces the famed 1958 Les Paul Standard model, the first in the line to include both a sunburst finish and the then-new PAF humbucker pickups. Launched in 1952, the Gibson Les Paul model put a carved Maple cap on a Mahogany slab, and paired that with a Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard and a gold-top finish. The Les Paul custom soon followed, but without the Maple cap – the body was all Mahogany, including the carved top – and with an Ebony fingerboard and Black finish. For 1958, the Les Paul Standard appeared, using the same Maple and Mahogany construction but with a Sunburst finish.

In 1971, the line was dropped in favour of the SG-100 and SG-200 models, which lasted one year.

This is a treat – one of the last pieces from the now-closed Memphis plant, a Gibson ES345 1964 Reissue in Frost Blue with nickel plated hardware. Gibson hit the mark squarely in 1958 with the introduction of the groundbreaking thinline semi-hollow concept, coupled with their new humbucking pickups. The ES-335 and upscale ES-355 were an immediate hit, and in 1959 the line was filled out with the mid-range ES-345, which also sported Split Parallelogram position markers and a six-position Varitone circuit, but not the Stereo outputs or extra binding of the ES-355.

National Model 1008 Console 8 String Steel White, 1961

National Model 1008 Console 8 String Steel White, 1961

From the early 1930s until the rise of Rock ‘n Roll, steel guitars like this National Model 1008 Console 8 were very popular, and for novice players, often their first instrument. In fact, the very first production electric guitars were Electric Hawaiian steel models, and the first of those was almost certainly the 1932 Ro-Pat-In Steel. Ro-Pat-In quickly improved their name to ‘Rickenbacher’ and soon also introduced the very rare 1935 ‘Ken Roberts’ guitar, arguably the first production Electric Spanish style guitar. Rickenbacker at this time was also building metal parts for both National and DoBro.

As well, he replaced the neck on Merle’s Martin, with a much slimmer neck sporting the distinctive Bigsby headstock. This neck aided the Travis style, which involves wrapping the left thumb over the low strings for bass notes.

Gibson U2 ‘SuperStrat’ Metallic Green, 1989

Gibson U2 'SuperStrat' Metallic Green, 1989

During the 1980s popular music made new demands on guitarists, and the ‘SuperStrat’, including the Gibson U2 model, became the go-to design for countless musicians. As the name suggests, the ‘SuperStrat’ concept improves on many aspects of the Stratocaster design – particularly in the range of available vibrato systems and pickup options. Many guitars in this genre use locking vibratos, a mix of high-output single coil and humbucking pickups, and wiring that ranges from very simple to rather complex.

The Meteor H70 was also available as the Meteor H71 – the same guitar, but with a Natural finish instead of sunburst. The largest difference between the Meteor H70 and models like the Rocket H54 is the use of Spruce laminate for the top instead of Maple.

The Casino was very important in the Epiphone line during the 1960’s, and was introduced to compete with the Gibson ES-330. In 1965, a member of an obscure band known as “The Beatles” – Paul McCartney – began using one for studio work – and John Lennon and George Harrison got theirs in 1966. This tobacco sunburst model became Lennon’s main guitar, and was later sanded and refinished natural. A few years ago, Gibson released two US-made versions of this guitar, in sunburst and natural (as the “Revolution” model) in a total production run of 1,965 pieces, and now has released the “Inspired by John Lennon” versions, which are much more affordable, yet still really good instruments.
