Fender 59 Reissue Stratocaster Sunburst, 2013

Fender 59 Reissue Stratocaster Sunburst, 2013

This Fender 59 Reissue Stratocaster sports the 3-tone sunburst Fender introduced in 1958, and the ‘Slab’ Rosewood fingerboard used when Fender first offered alternatives to one-piece Maple necks.   The body is Alder, which follows the model history. Fender initially used Ash or Swamp Ash, but by 1958 started to use Alder. With that change, a new finishing process was also used where the body wood was directly stained with yellow rather than adding yellow tint to clear lacquer (as is done with the red and black bands for the rest of the sunburst).

Rickenbacker 620 MapleGlo, 2012

Rickenbacker 620 MapleGlo, 2012

Here we have a very clean, great condition Rickenbacker 620 in MapleGlo finish (gloss natural), dated to late March of 2012 in Santa Ana, California. The Rickenbacker 620 was introduced in 1974 and its roots draw from the very late 1950’s model 450, a solidbody featuring the Cresting Wave body shape designed by Roger Rossmeisl. Construction of the Rickenbacker 620 is simple, with a through-neck design using Maple for the two-piece neck and body wings, and Indian Rosewood for the bound fingerboard.

Fender EC Blackie Tribute Stratocaster Custom Shop, 2006

Fender EC Blackie Tribute Stratocaster Custom Shop, 2006

This is a real treat! One of only 275 built during 2006, here is a Fender EC Blackie Tribute Custom Shop Stratocaster, complete with Duck Bros flight case, Certificate of Authenticity and all of the related materials. The Fender EC Blackie is based very closely on Clapton’s original ‘Blackie’, itself pieced together by Clapton from three 1950’s Strats. That guitar was ultimately sold at auction to Guitar Center by Christie’s on June 24, 2004, in support of Crossroads Center Antigua,  the addiction recovery center Clapton helped found in 1998.
