❌ SOLD ❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee HH Model Black, 2012

❌ SOLD ❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee HH Model Black, 2012

The Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee HH is a very straight ahead guitar – just like Albert Lee is a straight ahead guitar player. They both do exactly what is required in new creative ways, and do it exceptionally well. This Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee HH dates to January 12, 2012, and combines the striking, angular yet comfortable mahogany Albert Lee body with a solid rosewood neck and fingerboard. Locking tuners, a Music Man trem bridge, a pair of humbucking pickups with selector switch and master volume and tone controls round out the hardware.

Fender Bronco Guitar Fiesta Red, 1974

Fender Bronco Guitar Fiesta Red, 1974

The Fender Bronco was built between 1967 and 1980 as a single pickup, 24 inch scale student guitar. It featured a slab alder body, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, and a simple trem bridge. This example dates to around 1974 – it’s possibly a bit earlier – and is in largely original, and good, condition. The pickup has been changed, but other parts seem original. The finish, likely Fiesta Red is in quite good condition. This guitar has actually been played, as there is some wear to the end of the fingerboard and that’s usually from strumming with a pick. Fretwear is light to moderate. The original trem arm is long gone.

❌ SOLD ❌ Guild Songbird Thin Body Acoustic Electric Black, 1990

❌ SOLD ❌ Guild Songbird Thin Body Acoustic Electric Black, 1990

Designed by George Gruhn with the staff at Guild, built from 1984 to 1991, this thin-bodied acoustic electric guitar has an under-saddle pickup with controls on the side. These are common features now, but at the time they were groundbreaking. The Guild Songbird Thin Body Acoustic Electric features a spruce top paired with mahogany for the body and neck, and rosewood for the fingerboard. The Fishman Transducer is coupled with side-mounted controls featuring a four-band EQ, volume control, and phase switch. Helpfully, there is an LED indicator for the battery being engaged, or low, and it’s always good to have warning of a low battery. The standard 9v battery compartment is easily accessible on the back of the guitar. Tuners are gold-plated Grover Roto-Matics and work well.

Fender Telecaster Thinline Guitar Natural, 1978

Fender Telecaster Thinline Guitar Natural, 1978

Here we have a 1978 Fender Telecaster Thinline, from the second variation produced 1972-1980 at Fullerton, California. For this version the stock Tele pickup set is replaced with a pair of original design, humbucking pickups designed by Seth Lover, and the ‘Ashtray’ bridge shifts to the ‘Hardtail’ model like that found on trem-less Strats. The pickguard has been enlarged to enclose the bridge pickup. This example carries the classic one-piece Fender Maple Neck, with Schaller-designed tuners and the innovative Micro-Tilt 3-bolt neck attachment.

Gretsch Country Club 6195 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1960

Gretsch Country Club 6195 Archtop Electric Sunburst, 1960

This 1960 model Gretsch Country Club, with the trestle braced thinner body. The serial number grouping indicates an early part of the year, though the dates are not certain. There is some uncertainty as to the model number, because the stamp on the label is very faded. At this point, the Country Club used the designation 619x, with the ‘x’ indicating the finish colour. The most common variations are 6192 (sunburst), 6193 (natural) and 6196 (Cadillac Green). We read the last digit of the label as a 5, which can mean a custom order.

❌ SOLD ❌ Lado Falcon Custom Electric Solidbody Zebrawood, 1983

❌ SOLD ❌ Lado Falcon Custom Electric Solidbody Zebrawood, 1983

The Lado Falcon is a quintessential 1980’s guitar, pairing sustain and clarity with visual effects and playability. These guitars, like those from BC Rich and other builders, provided serious alternatives to Fender and Gibson models. The Lado Guitar Company was founded by Joseph Kovacic and for many years was based at 920 Kingston Road in Toronto. The next tenant was the brand-new Guitarists’ Pro Shop run by Grant MacNeill and Dan Charman named The Twelfth Fret. Lado moved to larger quarters in Scarborough, and in 1981 to a much larger facility in Uxbridge, Ontario, about 74 kilometers north of Toronto.
