❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Shop 1951 Telecaster Relic Blonde, 2016

❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Shop 1951 Telecaster Relic Blonde, 2016

The Fender Custom Shop 1951 Telecaster Relic features a light-weight Ash body, and a full-U profile, one piece Maple neck. This neck design was one of Leo Fender’s breakthroughs. The finish reproduces the original nitrocellulose lacquer ‘blonde’, but with significant wear. Tuners are Kluson Deluxe style with metal buttons, as Fender continued to use for decades. The bridge offers three Brass saddles, and has the Patent Pending stamp, as many early 1950’s models did (until Fender ran out and had to re-order).

❌SOLD❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Luke II, Luke Blue, 2012

❌SOLD❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Luke II, Luke Blue, 2012

Here we have a very clean, all original Ernie Ball Music Man Luke II in ‘Luke Blue’ finish – a light pearlescent blue, tending towards grey. This guitar dates to October 2, 2012 with a build code of 915 15 20 00 CS CR, and comes from the Ernie Ball Music Man shop in San Luis Obispo. Aside from its all round good looks, comfortable design, this is a very versatile guitar. It pairs an Alder body with a Maple neck and Indian Rosewood twelve inch radius fingerboard – and that’s it for the wood choices!

❌ SOLD❌ Fender 50th Anniversary Stratocaster Sunburst, 2004

❌ SOLD❌   Fender 50th Anniversary Stratocaster Sunburst, 2004

Here we have a very well preserved Fender 50th Anniversary Stratocaster, built during 2004 at the Fender plant in Corona, California. This example features an Ash body and Maple neck, with a single-layer white pickguard. The finish is the early style two-tone sunburst. For this, Fender sprayed a yellow center coat and then a dark ring around the body edges.
This is not a slavish re-creation of the 1954 model. It also sports a modern two-point trem bridge with steel block saddles – this is one of our favourite bridges for the improved brightness, clarity and separation offered by the heavier bridge components.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Left Handed Made In Japan Blonde, 1987

❌SOLD❌  Fender Stratocaster Left Handed Made In Japan Blonde, 1987

It’s unusual to see a Fender Stratocaster in Left Handed form, from the start of the ‘New’ Fender era when much of Fender’s production was Made in Japan. Here, we have a Fender Stratocaster Left Handed built during 1987 at the FujiGen Gakki plant in Nagano, in Blonde finish with Rosewood fingerboard. The original pickups have been replaced with Seymour Duncan models, and the original pick guard with a faux-tortoise unit. This really works well with the Rosewood fingerboard.

Built in Germany to update the concept of the lap steel, the Duesenberg Pomona 6 brings in features otherwise found on pedal steels, in particular a movable capo and the Multi Bender. Built with a slab of Mahogany carrying a pair of humbucking pickups, a sliding capo and a palm-lever operated pitch-raising ‘Multi Bender’ tailpiece based on the old Bigsby Palm Pedal design, the Pomona is a fully professional grade lap steel.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster 63 NOS Custom Shop Candy Apple Red, 2007

❌SOLD❌    Fender Telecaster 63 NOS Custom Shop Candy Apple Red, 2007

This Fender Telecaster 63 NOS is based on Fender’s 1963 specs. It is in complete and all original condition, and in good shape – there are a few dents and small chips around the edges of the nitrocellulose lacquer body finish. It is unusual for players to keep the ‘Ashtray’ pickup cover on. Though its purpose is to provide some shielding for the bridge pickup, it can get in the way of palm muting, and most of the time it is removed, set aside, and lost. Not here!
