Fender Jazz Bass Refinished Sunburst, 1966

Fender Jazz Bass Refinished Sunburst, 1966

The Fender Jazz Bass appeared in 1960, at a time when Fender dominated the electric guitar and bass market, but needed to introduce new models. The Jazz Bass Intended as a Deluxe instrument with a very different sound, look and feel from the Precision Bass, which had in a few years become a standard. However, the P-Bass was not fully accepted by Jazz players, and Fender wanted to expand their market to include them.

Hagstrom Super Swede Sunburst, 1983

The Hagstrom Super Swede, built from 1979 until Hagstrom closed in 1983, was the last of the top quality guitars from the venerable Swedish builder.

The body and neck are solid maple, and the bound fingerboard is Indian Rosewood.

‼️Reduced‼️ Fender Jazz Bass 1975 Reissue Natural, 2001

‼️Reduced‼️ Fender Jazz Bass 1975 Reissue Natural, 2001

The Fender Jazz Bass used the same proven Fender construction, with an Alder or Ash body and bolt on Maple neck. At 1960, Fender was learning how to add Rosewood fingerboards to their necks, and this was partly to win Gibson players over. The Jazz Bass had the new ‘offset’ body style, and a pair of single coil pickups. The earliest models used two concentric pots, each controlling volume and tone for one pickup. This soon gave way to the modern layout, of two volumes and one master tone control.

‼️Reduced‼️ PRS DGT David Grissom Trem Honeyburst, 2013

The PRS DGT David Grissom Trem model starts with the basic McCarty design, but alters the neck shape, pickups, and control layout, adds higher frets, and carries a vintage style trem bridge. It uses the proven formula of a carved Maple cap on a mahogany body, mahogany neck, and rosewood fingerboard. This model was introduced in 2007. Here we’re looking at a PRS DGT model built during 2013 at the PRS shop in Stevensville, Maryland, with a lovely honey burst finish. This guitar is in overall good condition with a few small dings, minor fretwear and minor play wear.

Fender Telecaster Blonde Refinish, 1964

Fender Telecaster Blonde Refinish, 1964

This Fender Telecaster Blonde Refinish dates largely to 1964, with a 1966 neck pickup and a newer pickguard of the correct white/black/white layering. Long ago, the body was stripped and refinished blonde.   The neck has some lacquer sprayed over the original finish, but this is quite worn and much of the wood is exposed – which makes it very comfortable.  The original decal is in good condition; at the time, Fender applied the decals over the lacquer finish, and many have not worn well.
