SOLD!!! Fender Precision Bass Sunburst 1966

SOLD!!! Fender Precision Bass Sunburst 1966

Here, we have a very nicely preserved Fender Precision Bass, with a neck stamp reading 5 OCT 1966 C. This bass appears to be in largely original condition, even with the pickup and bridge covers and finger rest. There is some belt buckle wear on the back, but otherwise the finish is in very good condition considering its age. It’s lost some of its gloss and gained a soft patina. The decal is in very good condition – often these dried out and flaked. The plating is mostly worn off the volume control knob, but the tone knob didn’t seem to get quite as much use.

Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail Black, 1975

Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail Black, 1975

The Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail Black was produced in tandem with its much better known brother, but it was never as popular as the trem bridge version. This version appealed mostly to players who wanted the extra sustain, snap and ‘spank’ from a fixed bridge – as with a Telecaster. The Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail was finally discontinued in 2010 due to low sales. Here we have a Rosewood fingerboard Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail dating to 1975, and built at the Fender plant in Fullerton, California.

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Fender American Vintage 1965 Jazzmaster Sunburst, 2013

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Fender American Vintage 1965 Jazzmaster Sunburst, 2013

Here we have an early release, 2013 American Vintage 1965 Jazzmaster in three tone sunburst, the yellow-red-black scheme found on so many 1960’s Fender models. This instrument is in very good, all original condition and the case includes the unopened bags of ‘Case Candy’, hang tags, strap and Fender documentation. For this series, the finish is nitrocellulose lacquer, and this is settling nicely.

SOLD! Gibson Les Paul Artisan Guitar, 1977

SOLD!  Gibson Les Paul Artisan Guitar, 1977

The Gibson Les Paul Artisan was built during the middle of the 1967-1986 Norlin period. The body uses the Les Paul Custom theme of bound, carved three-piece maple cap, on a bound mahogany back, but also uses a three-piece maple neck (five if you count the ‘wings’ for the headstock width). The ebony fingerboard and headplate are both bound, and as mentioned both the headstock and fingerboard feature a hearts-and-flowers mother of pearl inlay and script logo set that clearly draw from classic Gibson banjos. The Artisan is one of the very few Gibson guitar models to use this type of inlay pattern.

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.
