Taylor Solidbody Standard Tamo Ash Top Edgeburst, 2008

Taylor Solidbody Standard Tamo Ash Top Edgeburst, 2008

The Taylor Solidbody Standard was built from 2008 until the line was discontinued in 2014, and for two years featured a Sapele body with a lovely Tamo Ash top. Over the course of its production, Taylor offered three models – the Classic, Standard and Custom, in single and double cutaway versions. While called a solidbody, the Taylor Solidbody Standard is actually chambered. For 2008 and 2008, the body is Sapele with a Tamo Ash veneer top, Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the fingerboard head plate and truss rod cover. For hardware, standard Taylor branded sealed tuners are at the head, a pair of Taylor Style 1 humbucking pickups with a 5-way pickup selector, and Master Volume and Tone controls.

❌SOLD❌ Fender 70 Esquire Relic Blonde, 2008

Here is a rare Custom Shop Fender 70 Esquire Relic with Rosewood fingerboard in translucent blonde, and sporting an added Lollar neck pickup. This model was built in a run of 20 examples during 2008. The Fender Esquire was the first Electric Spanish style guitar to appear in a Fender catalog (all the others were Hawaiian or steel guitars), making its debut in the spring of 1950. This single pickup model didn’t have an adjustable truss rod, but by the fall of 1950, the two-pickup Broadcaster appeared and adjustable truss rods were standard for all the necks.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster HSS Maple Neck Candy Apple Red, 2008

The Fender Stratocaster HSS with a 2-point trem is one of the most significant, yet subtle changes to the venerable Strat design. These are two practical updates that increase versatility and reliability for the modern musical world. Introduced in 1954 as a significant upgrade to the successful Telecaster, Leo Fender’s Stratocaster design was immediately popular and has been built continually since its appearance.

Danelectro 59 12 String D5912 Black

The Danelectro 59 12 String D5912 recreates a classic 12. Originally successful in its orientation as a decent budget instrument, these new models at least as good. Based closely on the original double cutaway ‘Shorthorn’ two pickup models, the new Danelectro 59 12 String D5912 features the same ‘Masonite’ and hardwood body construction with a Maple neck and Pau Ferro fingerboard.
