Fender P-Bass Refinish, 1963

This Fender P-Bass has been around! Dating to 1963 and refinished during the 1980’s at the original Twelfth Fret location at 920 Kingston Road, the faux-tortoise pickguard has also been modified into two sections, the other components are original and it feels and sounds like an L-Series Precision bass.

BC Rich NJ Eagle Bolt-On Black, 1984

BC Rich NJ Eagle Bolt-On Black, 1984

Here is a BC Rich NJ Eagle, a bolt-on design built under Bernardo Rico’s direction in Nagoya, Japan in an effort to bring his designs to a wider market. This example dates to around 1984, and while it’s not quite the same as the hand-built, through-neck US BC Rich models – which is impressive. This is a really good feeling and good playing guitar.

Martin 0-18 Steel String Guitar Natural, 1917

⚌Reduced‼ Martin & Coupa Guitar, 1840s

⚌Reduced‼ Martin & Coupa Guitar, 1840s

Here is another rarity – an 1840’s Martin & Coupa guitar, built in Nazareth PA for John Coupa at 385 Broadway (Upstairs!) in New York. It is extraordinary that an instrument like this Martin & Coupa guitar could be in all original and playable condition, complete with its original “coffin” case, over 160 years after its production! To give a little chronological perspective, this instrument would have been delivered to its first owner by stagecoach and riverboat 20 years before the American Civil War.
