Hofner 1961 Cavern Bass 500/1 Left Handed Sunburst, 2015

Hofner 1961 Cavern Bass 500/1 Left Handed Sunburst, 2015

The Hofner 1961 Cavern bass was very popular in Europe during the late 1950s and early 1960’s. American built instruments were rare and expensive, and use by wildly successful bands such as The Beatles made everyone want one. At the time, the tiny Cavern Club in London was one of the key venues for aspiring bands to appear, and The Beatles played there so often the club name became closely associated with the band.

Sold! Dieter Hopf – Manuel Adalid Artista Membrane Classical Guitar, 2009

Sold!  Dieter Hopf - Manuel Adalid Artista Membrane Classical Guitar, 2009

Dieter Hopf’s family has been building for over three centuries, and his collaboration with Manuel Adalid, the Artista Membrane, uses the newest techniques. This unique design is a limited double top – the marked oval area visible on the cedar top is less than 2mm thick, but lattice braced with a carbon fiber layer. The result is an exceptionally loud voice, its tone tempered by the standard cedar top areas, with great projection.

Duesenberg Starplayer Special Creme and Black, 2002

Duesenberg Starplayer Special Creme and Black, 2002

Introduced in 2002, the Duesenberg Starplayer Special uses the classic bolt-on design, with a full 25.5 inch scale maple neck on and alder body with humbucking pickups. The neck sports an Indian Rosewood fingerboard,  with Mother of Pearl dot inlays.  It is a straightforward guitar, delivering exactly what it advertises. This early Duesenberg Starplayer Special, built during 2002 – the first year of production – is in very clean, all original condition. It plays very well and has just the slightest wear, even to the frets. The original Duesenberg hard shell case is included.
