Hardtail

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster HardTail Sunburst, 1978

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster HardTail Sunburst, 1978

Here we have a Fender Stratocaster HardTail, built at the Fullerton plant during 1978, during the CBS era. The HardTail version was made from 1955 until 2006, when poor sales caused Fender to drop the HardTail model. The two Stratocaster versions are very similar, but the fixed hardtail bridge model doesn’t have the large cavity routed on the back for the trem block and springs. Without that cavity and the spring components, the Fender Stratocaster HardTail tends to have a bit more sustain and note-to-note clarity and separation, as with the Telecaster. Of course, this means it does not have the ‘built-in reverb’ contributed by the springs, whether the bridge is set to trem use, or fully tightened down for tuning stability.

❌SOLD❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Reflex Hardtail Sunburst, 2016

The Ernie Ball Music Man Reflex HH HardTail guitar appeared during late 2009 and was built until 2017, when it underwent a number of electronic improvements and became ‘The Game Changer’. Somewhat similar to the Axis line, the Ernie Ball Music Man Reflex HH uses three woods for the body – a Basswood shell, Mahogany tone block, and a Maple cap. The neck is a traditional Maple, with either an integrated Maple fingerboard or a Rosewood slab board.

❌SOLD❌ Hamer Prototype Double Cut Solidbody Red, 1981

❌SOLD❌  Hamer Prototype Double Cut Solidbody Red, 1981

Built from 1981 to 1985, the Hamer Prototype was unique for its time and introduced a number of concepts that are now commonplace on production guitars, and not just on custom builds. Paul Hamer and Jol Dantzig opened Hamer Guitars in Willamette, Illinois in 1973 and began building custom designs based on Explorer and Flying V body shapes, with wild finishes and unusual hardware combinations.

❌SOLD❌ Anderson Classic T Translucent White, 2013

The Anderson Classic T is one of the best expressions of the seminal Fender model, keeping the best elements and improving on the simple, robust and reliable design. Built pairing an American Swamp Ash body with a Maple neck, this Anderson Classic T dates to the afternoon of October 31 2013, and sports a Translucent White finish, as the originals did. Extremely well built, the Classic T also has a contoured heel for easier access to the upper frets.

❌SOLD❌ EBMM Steve Morse Y2D Hardtail Purple Sunset, 2015

❌SOLD❌ EBMM Steve Morse Y2D Hardtail Purple Sunset, 2015

Based on the Steve Morse Signature model, the EBMM Steve Morse Y2D features a bookmatched, quilted Maple cap on a Poplar body, paired with an Indian Rosewood-fingerboard Maple neck. The headstock is the characteristic Music Man 4+2 compact design that helps improve balance. The neck carries a compensated nut that does help bring intonation into greater focus, and has a gloss finish on the headstock itself. The length of the neck uses a waxed, gunstock oil finish.

❌SOLD❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee SSS Hardtail Cherry Red, 2005

❌SOLD❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee SSS Hardtail Cherry Red, 2005

The Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee line has become one of my favourites and I wish I’d had one years ago – even if it wouldn’t have made me sound like Albert Lee!
Introduced in 1993, the Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee SSS was available only in hard tail 1996, when the Vintage Trem was an optional extra. Now, there are several versions of the model, with a pair of humbuckers, three narrow single coils, or three P-90s and the Music Man Silent Circuit, an active system that delivers noise cancellation to single coil pickups.
