Valley Arts Custom Pro Interlock Neck Burnt Amber, 1987

Valley Arts Custom Pro Interlock Neck Burnt Amber, 1987

This instrument is an early Valley Arts Custom Pro, in the 7/8th size and 25.75 inch scale format and with the ultra rare interlocking neck joint, built during 1987 at the expanded Valley Arts shop in North Hollywood, California. As was the case for many other early Valley Arts guitars, this example was originally purchased and used regularly by a top-rank professional guitarist for many studio and performance engagements. All of the wear on this guitar comes from pro use.

NS Designs, founded by Ned Steinberger, develops innovative instruments like the Steinberger NS CR5 Electric Cello – in 4,5, and 6 string versions, extending the possibilities of acoustic instruments previously used only in concert halls.Previously we’ve reviewed an NS CR Series ‘Upright Bass’, and unsurprisingly there are a number of similarities between that and the CR5 Electric Cello. The construction style is almost identical, with a compact Rock Maple body and set Maple neck, with a traditional hand-graduated Ebony fingerboard.

❌ SOLD ❌ Strandberg Boden USA 8 String Guitar, 2012

❌ SOLD ❌ Strandberg Boden USA 8 String Guitar, 2012

Here we are looking at an early Strandberg Boden USA built 8 string guitar with a thin translucent blue stain finish. This instrument is apparently one of the earliest Strandberg Bodens built in the USA, and as such it has no serial number. The Strandberg Boden design is quite flexible and allows Strandberg to quickly configure a guitar for pretty much any number of strings. In this case, there are eight, in a ‘Hard Tail’ format.
