❌SOLD❌Airline Pocket Bass by Valco, Black 1964

Here is a rarity,  an Airline Pocket Bass by Valco, Black dating to 1964, a short scale bass regarded by some as one of the best recording basses ever made.  The Airline Pocket Bass was built from 1962 to 1968 at the Valco shops in Chicago, Illinois, along with other Valco brands including National and Supro. Valco also branded their instruments for other companies, many of which were distributors or catalog retailers like Montgomery-Ward and Sears Roebuck. Valco amplifier production followed the same pattern but their customers included established builders like Harmony, Gretsch and Kay.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard Blonde, 1976

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard Blonde, 1976

The Fender Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard models appeared in September of 1959 as Fender introduced this wood to attract Gibson players. This was originally a flat-bottomed ‘Slab’ fingerboard glued to the flat top of the Maple neck, and the truss rod mounted from a channel underneath the fingerboard. In July 1962, Fender introduced new production processes to bond a thin layer of Rosewood to the curved top of a Maple neck blank, and this process is still used today.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Elite Sienna Sunburst, 1983

Here’s a fairly rare sighting– from 1983, an original condition Fender Stratocaster Elite in Sienna sunburst. This model was built only in 1983 and 1984, and introduced a number of new features and hardware pieces. Most visible of the 1983 Fender Stratocaster Elite updates are the short-lived FreeFlyte knife-edge trem, and the pushbutton pickup selectors. New pickups were installed, and the output jack went on the side – in this case, a standard barrel jack.
