❌SOLD❌ Fender Tele Sonic Chambered Solidbody Sunburst, 2003

❌SOLD❌ Fender Tele Sonic Chambered Solidbody Sunburst, 2003

The Fender Tele Sonic was built from 1998 to 2003, combining elements of several classic designs – the construction methods of the Fender Telecaster, the scale length of a Gibson style guitar, and a pair of DeArmond 2K single coil pickups, like a Gretsch Jet. There are other notable differences from stock models to the Fender Tele Sonic. The body is Honduran Mahogany, with tone chambers added. This would typically mean that, like the Telecaster Thinline, the top of the body blank is sliced off, tone and wiring chambers routed, the cap is restored and the body finished.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Precision Bass Sunburst, 1964

❌SOLD❌  Fender Precision Bass Sunburst, 1964

Introduced in 1954, the Fender Precision Bass was quickly adopted by bass players. It was an elegant solution to a few large problems related to the large size of an upright bass, its tendency to feed back as amplified volumes consistently rose, and the ease with which notes could be out of tune on a fretless fingerboard. The P Bass was compact, lightweight, durable and reliable, would not feed back, and would be precisely in tune with the rest of the band.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Precision Bass Sunburst, 1959

❌SOLD❌ Fender Precision Bass Sunburst, 1959

This is an exceptional treat – a Fender Precision Bass Sunburst dated to January of 1959, with the original tweed case, possibly original but certainly period strap, and brought in with the 1957 Fender Bassman amp (sold separately) the owner used in a band called the “Down Unders”. Leo Fender introduced the Precision Bass in 1952, following the lead of the very successful Telecaster line. The use of the term ‘Precision’ in the name refers to the addition of frets to the bass. Until this time, bass players used fretless upright basses, and so pitches could vary from time to time.

❌SOLD ❌ Fender Jazz Bass Olympic White, 1965

❌SOLD ❌  Fender Jazz Bass Olympic White, 1965

The Fender Jazz Bass was launched in 1960 as part of an effort to capture the interest of serious jazz bass players still using upright acoustic instruments. The Jazz Bass was built until 1981, and has since been offered in a wide range of models based on the original concept. Here we’re treated to a Fender Jazz Bass in Olympic White finish, dating to 7 May 1965 and built at the Fender plant in Fullerton, California just after the company’s purchase by CBS.

❌SOLD❌  Fender Jazzmaster 65 Reissue Ice Blue Metallic, 2014

The Fender Jazzmaster 65 is part of the American Vintage series, and this 2014 model is dressed in a custom Ice Blue Metallic with matching headstock! Introduced in 1958, the Jazzmaster was aimed directly at Gibson’s market – jazz players who wanted the extra warmth of a rosewood fingerboard, and lower output and mellower, or less bright, pickups.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Jaguar Olympic White, 1965

❌SOLD❌ Fender Jaguar Olympic White, 1965

The Fender Jaguar appeared in 1962, and while it was based on concepts and parts used on the Jazzmaster, there were a number of design departures. Like the Jazzmaster, the Fender Jaguar used an offset-waist body with comfort contours, and shared the same bridge and vibrato tailpiece design. And, the Jaguar sported the same Rosewood fingerboard, which by this time was a curved veneer rather than a ‘slab’ with a flat bottom.
