Stelling Golden Cross Gospel Banjo, 1978

Stelling Golden Cross Gospel Banjo, 1978

Here we have a Stelling Golden Cross Gospel banjo, built of Black Walnut during 1978 in Afton, Virginia with a raised, rather than inlaid, rear cross. One other Gospel model like this is known to have been built for Ralph Stanley with the serial number 428.  The current Golden Cross models do not have the rear cross.  The Stelling Golden Cross Gospel is based closely on the stock Golden Cross, with the primary difference being the headstock inlays.

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Ibanez Musician MC500 Solidbody Dark Stain, 1979

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Ibanez Musician MC500 Solidbody Dark Stain, 1979

The Ibanez Musician MC500 appeared as Ibanez hit its stride and moved away from straight copies of US models, and was built from late 1977 as a 1978 model to 1980. The Musician series used a multi-piece, neck-through design and active electronics, all quite possibly influenced by the Alembic instruments of the day. Overall, the goal was to provide maximum sustain, stability and tonal versatility in a professional grade package.

Fender 1956 Precision Bass Sunburst

Fender 1956 Precision Bass Sunburst

The Fender 1956 Precision Bass was a transition model and the last production version of this fantastically influential instrument before it took its final form in 1957. Introduced in 1951 with a ‘slab’ body and single coil pickup, the Precision Bass was rapidly popular and in 1954 gained ‘comfort contours’ to match the new Stratocaster model. In 1957, the P-Bass was revised with a larger headstock, new pickguard and the two-coil humbucking pickup that Fender, like most manufacturers, had been developing.
