Fender Precision Special Bass Lake Placid Blue, 1980

Fender Precision Special Bass Lake Placid Blue, 1980

The Fender Precision Special bass was built from 1980 to 1982 as part of a trend to modernize some of Fender’s best sellers, particularly the Precision Bass and Stratocaster as ‘The Strat’.   These instruments were built at Fender’s historic Fullerton, California plant under CBS management. Using the same basic construction and materials, the Fender Precision Bass Special starts with an Ash body and one piece Maple neck, here finished in Lake Placid Blue with matching headstock and “Fender Precision Special” decal. However, the gold plated hardware and gold metal thumb rest start to hint that there are differences.

Gretsch Chet Atkins 6122 Country Gentleman Thinline Archtop Walnut, 1963

Gretsch Chet Atkins 6122 Country Gentleman Thinline Archtop Walnut, 1963

Here we’re looking at a Gretsch Chet Atkins 6122 Country Gentleman built during 1963, the same year as Harrison’s. This fine example is in very good condition, and is original except for the addition of a Gibson style, gold plated tune-o-matic bridge in place of the rocking bar bridge. The finish is worn on the neck where it’s been played – the frets are original and have expected wear – but the guitar has been well cared for and the finish is in overall good condition.

❌SOLD❌ Ibanez JSM100 John Scofield Model Thinline Sunburst, 2009

❌SOLD❌  Ibanez JSM100 John Scofield Model Thinline Sunburst, 2009

The Ibanez JSM100 uses the same construction concept as other ES models, but the wood choice is a bit different. The body, instead of using Maple laminate, uses figured Anigre, an African hardwood, for the laminate. The center block is Maple, as is the neck, which has an Ebony fingerboard. Decoration is similar to other Ibanez models in this range; hardware is gold plated, and the inlays include a mix of Abalone and Acrylic for the block markers on the bound, compound radius fingerboard.
