❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster HardTail Sunburst, 1978

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster HardTail Sunburst, 1978

Here we have a Fender Stratocaster HardTail, built at the Fullerton plant during 1978, during the CBS era. The HardTail version was made from 1955 until 2006, when poor sales caused Fender to drop the HardTail model. The two Stratocaster versions are very similar, but the fixed hardtail bridge model doesn’t have the large cavity routed on the back for the trem block and springs. Without that cavity and the spring components, the Fender Stratocaster HardTail tends to have a bit more sustain and note-to-note clarity and separation, as with the Telecaster. Of course, this means it does not have the ‘built-in reverb’ contributed by the springs, whether the bridge is set to trem use, or fully tightened down for tuning stability.

Taylor 362ce 12 String Guitar Shaded Edge Burst

Taylor 362ce 12 String Guitar Shaded Edge Burst

Traditionally, many players may have shied away from a 12 string guitar due to their large size but the Taylor 362ce 12 string now provides a beautiful compact alternative. The grand concert body used on the Taylor 362ce is one of most compact that Taylor produces. Its curvy waist and smaller lower bout really let this guitar sit in your lap comfortably and it reduces fatigue on your strumming arm.

Fender Jazz Bass Burgundy Refinish, 1962

Fender Jazz Bass Burgundy Refinish, 1962

Here we have a Fender Jazz Bass dating to 7 May 1962 with a Burgundy refinish replacing the original Sunburst. This is a fairly rare Rosewood Slab Board model, indicating a type of neck built in Fullerton, California until mid 1962. The Fender Jazz Bass was introduced in 1960, aimed at the Jazz bass players who had not adopted the Precision Bass or who wanted a thinner neck and more focused tone. The Offset Body that debuted on the 1958 Jazzmaster was used for the Jazz Bass body.
