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 Precision Bass Maple Neck Black, 1975

⚌Reduced‼ 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.

It has proven itself to be extremely durable, reliable, and versatile and many other builders have based instruments on the P-Bass concepts.

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Electric XII 12-String Sunburst, 1966

Here’s a rarity from early CBS-owned Fender days – an original Fender Electric XII 12 string with the distinctive ‘bent’ or ‘hockey stick’ headstock! The Fender Electric XII uses the typical Fender approach to guitar construction. The body is Alder in a shape derived from Fender’s offset-waist guitars – the Jazzmaster and Jaguar. The split pickups feed through a rotary four-position switch, allowing a phase reversal in one of the combined positions. The rest of the controls are master volume and master tone.

Fender American Professional Jazz Bass Olympic White

Fender American Professional Jazz Bass Olympic White

The Fender American Professional Jazz bass is an update of the Fender Deluxe bass, originally released in 1960 and quickly renamed as the Jazz Bass. Fender believed the narrower neck and single coil pickups would appeal to jazz musicians. This bass became a legend as it caught on to more than just jazz players and it has been heard on countless classic recordings. The Fender American Professional Jazz bass retains much of the character of its ancestor while being updated with modern features to create an amazing contemporary bass.
