Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster Surf Green, 2009

Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster Surf Green, 2009

The Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster, built since 1991, honors one of the more innovative and versatile rock guitarists.  Jeff Beck has been working since the early 1960s and has appeared on countless stages and recordings. 
Drawing from a standard model, the Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster features an Alder body and Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard.  However, in the interests of stage performance and tuning stability, this model also features locking (Sperzel) tuners, an LSR Roller nut, two-point trem and hot Noiseless pickups.

Music Man Sterling 4 HS Bass Natural, 2006

Music Man Sterling 4 HS Bass Natural, 2006

The Ernie Ball Music Man Sterling 4 was introduced in 1993 with a single pickup, Ash body, and Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard. In 2005, a second neck pickup became available. Music Man was founded in 1972 by Leo Fender, Forrest White and Tom Walker, originally named Tri-Sonix, then MusiTek and in 1974 became Music Man. Leo Fender was still bound by a 1965 non-competition agreement with CBS, so until 1975 he was a silent partner though he left the company in 1979.

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Stratocaster Sunburst 1977

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Stratocaster Sunburst 1977

Introduced in 1954 and bearing a suspicious resemblance to the outlines of the early Precision Bass, the Fender Stratocaster Sunburst became one of the most successful and versatile guitar designs. Here we’re looking at a CBS era Fender Stratocaster Sunburst, one of the most distinctive of Fender’s guitars and finishes. This example dates to late 1977 and is in good working condition, appearing largely original. The contoured body is Ash, with a Maple neck, here with a Walnut ‘Skunk Stripe’ indicating that the truss rod was mounted from the rear, unlike many Rosewood fingerboard models that have the truss rod mounted from the top, before the fingerboard is installed.

Fender Mustang Sunburst, 1973

Introduced in 1964 and built until 1982 as a student model, the Fender Mustang has also been used by a number of touring professionals, including Adrian Belew, Kurt Cobain, David Byrne, John Frusciante and of course the late Johnny Winter. Here we’re looking at a Fender Mustang in Sunburst finish, built during 1973 at the Fender Fullerton plant, almost halfway through the period of CBS ownership.

Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley MIJ, 1987

Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley MIJ, 1987

Here’s something special! Not a reissue but an original, the Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley was built in Japan from 1985 to 1987 while Fender had no guitar production in the USA. The Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model was unique to this era though during 1968, Fender built a Paisley Telecaster. The finish uses a foil layer on top of the body wood and covered with a polyester sunburst layer. This Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model dates to 1987 and was built for Fender Japan by Fuji-Gen at Matsumoto, Nagano. It’s in good clean condition though it has definitely been played, as evidenced by the fingerboard wear.

National Tricone Style 1 12 Fret Resophonic Nickel Brass Guitar, 2001

National Tricone Style 1 12 Fret Resophonic Nickel Brass Guitar, 2001

The National Tricone Style 1 is based on the seminal National String Instrument Corporation guitars built from 1927 to 1943. National’s first design was for a three-cone amplification system, and the prototypes used a round cover for the three cones but by the time production began, a triangular cover plate was developed. An interesting aside is that many of the early components were made for National by Adolph Rickenbacker, who had a nearby metal shop and an interest in musical instruments.
