Fender Precision Bass Maple Neck Black, 1975

Fender Precision Bass Maple Neck Black, 1975

Here we have a handsome, almost all original, Fender Precision Bass Maple neck built at the CBS/Fender Fullerton plant in 1975 – the pot codes date to 1974. First appearing in October 1951, the Fender Precision bass was a brilliant piece of industrial design. This innovation brought modern influences to the bass world – such as the ability to reliably and consistently produce a precise pitch, and to play at any volume without feedback. Quickly adopted, the Precision Bass was updated in 1954 to visually match the new Stratocaster, and has been in production with really only minor modifications since then.   The P-Bass is arguably one of the most functionally successful bass instruments ever built, having appeared on more recordings and stages than any other bass.

Fender Vintera 60s Telecaster Bigsby, Sunburst

The Fender Vintera 60s Telecaster Bigsby is Mexican made guitar for players that prefer the vintage style and features from Fenders classic years. This guitar features a thick fat shouldered early 60s neck shape with a 7.25” fretboard radius. The core of the tone is produced by the two 60s style single coil pickups which have been recreated to feature the articulate twang and growl that has made the Telecaster a legend.

Valley Arts Brent Mason Signature Custom Pro Grey, 2005

Valley Arts Brent Mason Signature Custom Pro Grey, 2005

The Valley Arts Brent Mason Signature Custom Pro is based on Mason’s 1968 Fender Telecaster, modified over the years to meet the requirements of a top session player. Introduced in 2004, the Brent Mason model was built for only a few years, after Valley Arts had been purchased by Gibson with a small retail and construction space in Nashville. However, by 2006 that shop closed and in 2012 Mike McGuire, who had founded Valley Arts in 1975 and ultimately ran Gibson Custom, retired.

Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Black, 1978

Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Black, 1978

The Fender Telecaster Maple Neck has been built without interruption since 1951, though models dating to 1950 used the name ‘Broadcaster’. The concept is simple yet was revolutionary, immediately appealed to countless guitarists and prompted many advances in musical technology. Here we’re looking at a Fender Telecaster Maple Neck with a black Polyester finish, worn enough through use to have exposed blonde and clear sealer finish undercoats. At the time, if Fender had orders for colours not in stock, they would re-finish a body. For example, this guitar’s body may well have originally been Blonde, and over-sprayed black before assembly and shipment.

Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster Surf Green, 2009

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‼ Fender Stratocaster Sunburst 1977

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Stratocaster Sunburst 1977

Introduced in 1954 and bearing a suspicious resemblance to the outlines of the early Precision Bass, the Fender Stratocaster Sunburst became one of the most successful and versatile guitar designs. Here we’re looking at a CBS era Fender Stratocaster Sunburst, one of the most distinctive of Fender’s guitars and finishes. This example dates to late 1977 and is in good working condition, appearing largely original. The contoured body is Ash, with a Maple neck, here with a Walnut ‘Skunk Stripe’ indicating that the truss rod was mounted from the rear, unlike many Rosewood fingerboard models that have the truss rod mounted from the top, before the fingerboard is installed.
