❌SOLD❌ C. F. Martin 00018 Steel String Guitar, 2017

❌SOLD❌  C. F. Martin 00018 Steel String Guitar, 2017

The very first C. F. Martin 00018 steel string guitar appeared in 1906 with a Maple body, then with Rosewood until 1917, and finally built using Mahogany for the body in small numbers until 1926, when 224 were sold. Annual production stayed in the mid-hundreds until 1972, when 650 were built. It has been in production since, with the exception of 1932 and 1933, when none were built. The C. F. Martin 00018 string guitar is closely related to the OM or Orchestra Model, introduced in 1930.

Fender American Professional Telecaster Maple Neck

Fender American Professional Telecaster Maple Neck

The Fender American Professional Telecaster is based on one of the most recognized and successful electric guitars in history. Originally designed in late 1951, Leo Fender aimed to make musician’s lives better by producing an instrument that was versatile and durable. While the design of the Fender American Professional Telecaster is largely the same as the original, Fender wasn’t content to rest on their laurels.

❌SOLD❌Fender Jazz Bass Natural, 1973

❌SOLD❌Fender Jazz Bass Natural, 1973

The Fender Jazz Bass made its appearance in 1960 as Fender’s second major bass design after the two versions of the Precision Bass.  Targeted towards the Jazz players still using acoustic instruments, the Jazz Bass offered a punchy, focused tone and a narrow fast fingerboard. Offered with either a Maple or Rosewood fingerboard, this instrument was built until 1981 when it was replaced by the Standard Jazz Bass. The Fender Jazz Bass uses the same proven and highly reliable design concept as other Fender instruments – a Maple neck bolted to an Ash or Alder body.

❌SOLD❌ Maton MS500 Solidbody Electric Guitar Dark Green, 2001

❌SOLD❌ Maton MS500 Solidbody Electric Guitar Dark Green, 2001

In North America, guitars like the Australian-built Maton MS500 Mastersound are fairly rare, though they are common in their home countries. This is often due to three factors, none of which reflect quality – distance (shipping costs), import duties and distribution chains. Here we’re treated to a Maton MS500 solidbody electric, built during 2001 at the Maton shop in Box Hill, Victoria, Australia – near Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay. Like other Maton products we’ve seen, it is well thought out, very well built and finished, and incorporates indigenous wood species wherever possible.
