Fender Purple Sparkle Telecaster Custom Shop, 2003

This Fender Purple Sparkle Telecaster was built during 2003 at Corona California Custom Shop and aside from the spectacular finish features a 50’s profile Birds-Eye Maple neck! Drawing from the popularity of wild automotive finishes in the 1950’s and 1960’s, Fender has offered many custom finishes, some based on the ‘Candy’ concept of using a metal-flake base layer with a translucent colour over top.

⚌Reduced‼ 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.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson SG Supreme Fireburst, 2002

⚌Reduced‼  Gibson SG Supreme Fireburst, 2002

The Gibson SG Supreme was built from 1999 to 2009 and features a figured Maple cap on a Mahogany slab body, paired with a Mahogany neck and bound Richlite fingerboard. At first, the SG Supreme was equipped with a pair of P-90 pickups, but these were phased out in favour of Humbuckers over the year 2000 and into 2001. In 2002, the ‘Fireburst’ finish seen here started rising from the tail of the guitar, rather than the traditional burst with dark edges and lighter center.

Gibson Custom CS356 Thinline Faded Cherry, 2008

Gibson Custom CS356 Thinline Faded Cherry, 2008

The Gibson Custom CS356 was the top level version of the Gibson Custom CS336, and was built from 2002 to 2008. Like the CS-336, it was based on a carved Solid Figured Maple top on a chambered single-piece block of Mahogany, routed out to provide the sides, back, center block and tone chambers. Based on its 5-digit serial number with an 8 as its first digit, this example dates to 2008 and as such would be one of the last built.  It has very little wear,  and is in great condition with only a few minor bumps.

Gibson CS336 Thinline Compact Archtop Faded Cherry, 2004

Gibson CS336 Thinline Compact Archtop Faded Cherry, 2004

Introduced in late 2001 and built until 2010, the Gibson CS336 is based on a scaled-down ES-335, but there are some significant differences. The body blends a carved, two piece solid Maple top with a solid piece of Mahogany, shaped and routed to provide the inner resonant chambers and the solid center block. In the ES-335 design, the top, sides and back are built traditionally using Maple laminate, with a solid Maple center block added. On this model, the bound fingerboard is Indian Rosewood with dot position markers.
