Sold! Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster Olympic White, 2006

Sold!  Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster Olympic White, 2006

The Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster, here as an Olympic White 2006 custom shop build, recognizes Beck’s needs for sonic versatility and tuning stability. Unusually for top flight rock players, Jeff Beck plays fingerstyle, without picks, and his heavy use of the trem bridge is part of his unmistakable sound. In the mid 1960’s, Jeff Beck was one of three top English players closely associated with the Telecaster – Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page were the other two.

Gibson Les Paul Standard Cherryburst, 1998

Gibson Les Paul Standard Cherryburst, 1998

The Gibson Les Paul Standard Cherryburst, named as the Standard, didn’t appear until 1959 but in its sunburst form dates to 1958 and the move away from the Goldtop finish. The ‘Standard’ engraved truss rod cover came into use during 1976, At first appearance in 1952, the Les Paul model bore the familiar gold-top, and in 1954 the Les Paul Custom appeared in black, along with the Les Paul Junior. In 1955 the Les Paul Special was launched, without the carved Maple cap. Finishes included the ‘TV’ tint, intended to make the guitar better visible on black and white televisions.

Sold! Fender American Telecaster Left Handed Sunburst, 2002

Sold!  Fender American Telecaster Left Handed Sunburst, 2002

This Fender American Telecaster Left Handed in Sunburst finish, built in 2002 at the Fender Corona plant, is in overall good condition. There is a little scuffing on the tail edge of the back finish, and light oxidization on the bridge plate, with light fret and play wear. It plays well, and as the frets on this series are larger than vintage style, there is plenty of room for any future maintenance.

Sold! Fender American Standard Strat Left Handed Metallic Red, 2007

Sold!  Fender American Standard Strat Left Handed Metallic Red, 2007

The Fender American Standard Left Handed was built from 1987 to 2017, offering a blend of vintage and modern ideas – bent steel saddles and a fingerboard extension with larger frets. In general, the guitar showed improved build quality and hardware. The next step up from this model added locking tuners, a great idea for most guitars, and modern Fender locking tuners would fit directly on this guitar (a left handed set of course).

Sold! Ibanez AS80 Artist Thinline Electric Cherry, 1983

Sold! Ibanez AS80 Artist  Thinline Electric Cherry, 1983

Produced in the early 1980’s in Japan and not as common as the much fancier AS100 and AS200 models, the Ibanez AS80 was the equivalent of an ES-335. This guitar is from the period when Ibanez fully established themselves as a builder of high quality guitars that were not simply straight copies of US models. Built using maple laminates for the body, and solid maple for the center block and rosewood-fingerboard neck, the AS80 is a straight ahead thinline archtop electric lacking the ‘bling’ of the higher-numbered models.
