Fender Electric XII 12-String Sunburst, 1966

Fender Electric XII 12-String Sunburst, 1966

Here’s a rarity from early CBS-owned Fender days – an original Fender Electric XII 12 string with the distinctive ‘bent’ or ‘hockey stick’ headstock! The Fender Electric XII uses the typical Fender approach to guitar construction. The body is Alder in a shape derived from Fender’s offset-waist guitars – the Jazzmaster and Jaguar. The split pickups feed through a rotary four-position switch, allowing a phase reversal in one of the combined positions. The rest of the controls are master volume and master tone.

⚌Reduced‼ DK Cleopatra Acoustic Steel String, 2017

⚌Reduced‼  DK Cleopatra Acoustic Steel String, 2017

Dmitry Kulakov has brought us one of his newer creations, the DK Cleopatra model featuring his Fibonacci body shape, Sitka Spruce top and Amazon Rosewood for the sides and back. New guitar designs are relatively easy to come up with, but what’s much more difficult is having that design work as a functional and good sounding instrument. The DK Cleopatra succeeds in these regards, resulting in an attractive and visually striking and rather good sounding instrument.

Gibson Marauder Solidbody Sunburst, 1975

Gibson Marauder Solidbody Sunburst, 1975

The Gibson Marauder was designed by Bill Lawrence and built from 1975 to 1980, and over time a total of 7,112 were built including the Marauder Custom. This Gibson Marauder example dates to 1975 and was built at the Gibson Nashville plant. It is in good condition and plays well, though the pickups are not original and a full size humbucker has been installed in the bridge position, with the pickguard cut to fit. The finish otherwise is in good shape with a number of small dents and dings from honest use. The neck finish is worn from frets 2 to 7 from playing in that area. Fret wear is moderate.

❌SOLD❌ Suhr Modern Custom Claro Walnut HSH, 2015

❌SOLD❌  Suhr Modern Custom Claro Walnut HSH, 2015

This lovely Suhr Modern Custom sports a Claro Walnut top on a Spanish Cedar body, paired with a Pau Ferro neck and Macassar Ebony fingerboard!   Claro Walnut is also known as ‘California Black Walnut’.  Spanish Cedar or ‘Cedro’ is very commonly used for classical guitar necks, and for bodies on Suhr guitars. A quirk of the Suhr process is that the serial number is established at time of order, sometimes well before the instrument construction is begun, let alone finished.   While these numbers are consecutive, that doesn’t always match the sequence pieces are completed so dating via serial number is tougher.

❌SOLD❌ Suhr Modern Carved Top Lacewood and Cedar Fireburst 2017

Here is something not seen every day – a Suhr Modern Carved Top model with a chambered Lacewood top, Cedar back body. Suhr models start at professional grade and are largely custom order. A quirk of the Suhr process is that the serial number is established at time of order, sometimes well before the instrument construction is begun, let alone finished.   While these numbers are consecutive, that doesn’t always match the sequence pieces are completed.   Here, this Suhr Modern Carved Top model has a COA listing a date of 10/24/2017.
