Fender American Series Telecaster Rosewood Board Sunburst, 2005

Fender American Series Telecaster Rosewood Board Sunburst, 2005

The Fender American Series Telecaster was built from 2000 to 2007, renamed from (and then back to!) the American Standard Telecaster. It presents many of the best improvements to this venerable design.
Leo Fender’s design, quickly becoming the Telecaster, has arguably been one of the most successful and influential musical instruments ever. It has been in continuous production since the early 1950’s, with really only relatively minor changes and improvements.

Furlanetto F Bass 6 String Sunburst, 1989

Furlanetto F Bass 6 String Sunburst, 1989

This Furlanetto F Bass 6 String dating to 1989 and built using an Ash body is paired with a one-piece Maple neck and Macassar Ebony fingerboard. The bass is wrapped in a very nicely executed Nitrocellulose Lacquer sunburst finish. Hardware is straightforward for a six string bass – there are six Gotoh tuners with mini bodies at the head and a massive, fully adjustable six saddle bridge.

Gibson Les Paul Standard Left Handed Black, 1986

Gibson Les Paul Standard Left Handed Black, 1986

Here we have a Gibson Les Paul Standard Left Handed model, in gloss black! Dating to 1986, this example is in overall good condition with a few bumps. Production of left handed Gibson Les Paul models has never been extensive, but does date back to the late 1950’s. There are at least three known, surviving left handed Les Paul Standards built between 1958 and 1960, which indicates how few were really made.

Hagstrom Swede Mahogany, 1973

Hagstrom Swede Mahogany, 1973

Built from 1970 to 1982 at the Alvdalen, Sweden plant, the Hagstrom Swede was a major step for the Swedish builder and this Mahogany example illustrates how good these guitars were. Before evolving into the 1979 set-neck Super Swede, the Swede used a bolt-on design and did not have a zero fret. This example dates to 1973 and was 44th in its production batch.

Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Sunburst, 2006

Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Sunburst, 2006

Drawing from 1957 specifications, the Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster is built from a light-weight two-piece Alder body, and a one-piece Maple neck. (This model is also available with a Rosewood fingerboard). Since Johnson removes the backplate, it’s not installed on the signature model and mounting holes are not drilled.   The tuners are a staggered set – the posts for the high E, B and G strings are shortened to increase downbearing at the nut without requiring a string tree, which can add friction.

Gibson Les Paul Standard Tobacco Sunburst, 2007

Gibson Les Paul Standard Tobacco Sunburst, 2007

The Gibson Les Paul Standard as a distinct model appeared in 1958, based on the 1957 Les Paul Gold Top that carried the new Humbucking pickups but with a sunburst finish and a figured top. However, the Les Paul was declining in popularity, and the model was completely redesigned as what we now know as the SG, for 1961. The traditional single-cutaway Les Paul was out of production until 1968.
