❌SOLD❌ Ramirez 1a Long Scale Classical Guitar Cedar Top Brazilian, 1967

❌SOLD❌ Ramirez 1a Long Scale Classical Guitar Cedar Top Brazilian, 1967

Here we have a Ramirez 1a Long Scale classical guitar built during 1967, during the ‘golden era’ of Jose Ramirez III’s leadership of the Ramirez workshop at Concepcion Jeronima No. 2 in Madrid, Spain. This well-used instrument features a long scale of 664mm or 26.14 inches, intended to provide increased volume and projection for the professional concert performer.  With Jose Ramirez III leading the workshop, this Ramirez 1a Long Scale has the initials CLL on the slipper foot. Its construction defines the tradition that countless other builders follow, with the slipper foot join integrating the sides and neck for maximum resonance and response.

❌SOLD❌ Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, 1984 (REDUCED)

❌SOLD❌ Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, 1984 (REDUCED)

Here we have a Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, dating to 1984 and built at the Steinberger shop in Newburgh, New York. It uses the unmistakable headless design based on the L2 and is made of graphite reinforced epoxy with some plastic components (the top). The pickups are by EMG. It is in overall very good, original condition though – as is common with these instruments – the plug-in leg rest is missing. Fret wear is minor and it’s very comfortable to play, with a tight focused tone even acoustically. 
Ned Steinberger came from a fine arts background, focusing on sculpture, to create highly influential instruments, particularly the headless guitar and bass.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass, 2011

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass, 2011

Here’s something unusual a Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass dating to November 2011. We rarely see these basses; they were not produced with the original 1950’s versions of the White Falcon, and first appeared around 2006 as a new model built for Gretsch at the Japan Terada plant (hence the JT at the start of the serial number). This plant builds many really excellent quality instruments.
The Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass uses a fully hollow, arched Maple laminate body with tone bar bracing, and a 34-inch scale Maple neck with bound Ebony fingerboard, and with the engraved gold-plated “THE WHITE FALCON” plaque on the Falcon-styled headstock. It’s a White Falcon, so of course all of the binding is Gold Sparkle.
