⚌Reduced‼ Fender Telecaster Custom Black, 1978

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Telecaster Custom Black, 1978

Here is a rare piece – a Fender Telecaster Custom with an original Wide Range Humbucker, a model produced from 1972 to 1981. Fender’s goal was to provide a guitar with a humbucker to compete with Gibson, and added a humbucker in the neck position, three way toggle switch, and individual volume and tone controls. This model was used by a number of prominent guitarists, including Keith Richards and The Edge.

Fender 57 Reissue Precision Bass Sunburst, 1982

Fender 57 Reissue Precision Bass Sunburst, 1982

Here we have a Fender 57 Reissue Precision Bass, in two-tone sunburst and built during 1982 in Fullerton, California, during the period of CBS ownership. This bass reproduces the second major evolutionary step of the P-Bass towards its current form. Initially, the Precision Bass used a slab body and single-coil pickup. To keep pace with the ‘New for 1954’ Stratocaster, in that year the Precision Bass also received body contours. This lasted until 1957, when the new hum-cancelling split pickup was introduced.

Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass Sunburst, 1982

Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass Sunburst, 1982

This Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass Sunburst was built during 1982 in Fullerton, California and looking like it was used as intended.  With a neck date of April 1982, this Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass is an early effort to capture the original style of the Jazz Bass. The original models were introduced in 1960 as an attempt to capture the rest of the professional bass player market that hadn’t migrated to the Precision Bass.

❌SOLD❌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.
