Fender Sting Precision Bass Sunburst, 2004

Fender Sting Precision Bass Sunburst, 2004

The Fender Sting Precision Bass is based on the 1953 bass used by Gordon Sumner – Sting – on his recording and performances with The Police and solo work. It was built between 2001 and 2013 at the Fuji Gen plant in Matsumoto, Japan for Fender Japan. Introduced in 1951, the Fender Precision bass is a landmark instrument, and influenced the way that music is performed and presented. Easily and consistently providing a precise pitch – hence the ‘Precision’ name – was a new concept for bassists, who all used upright, acoustic fretless instruments.

Sold! Fender Telecaster Blonde Refinish, 1964

Sold!  Fender Telecaster Blonde Refinish, 1964

This Fender Telecaster Blonde Refinish dates largely to 1964, with a 1966 neck pickup and a newer pickguard of the correct white/black/white layering. Long ago, the body was stripped and refinished blonde.   The neck has some lacquer sprayed over the original finish, but this is quite worn and much of the wood is exposed – which makes it very comfortable.  The original decal is in good condition; at the time, Fender applied the decals over the lacquer finish, and many have not worn well.

‼️Reduced‼️ Fender Stratocaster Antigua Maple Neck Hard Tail, 1979

‼️Reduced‼️  Fender Stratocaster Antigua Maple Neck Hard Tail, 1979

Fender produced the Stratocaster Antigua in limited numbers during the 1970’s. This unusual finish is like a grey to pale yellow sunburst, often with a greenish tint. The Antigua finish started as a way to fix a problem with burned binding on Coronados, and was extended to other models. Here we have a hard tail, maple neck version of the 1979 Stratocaster Antigua. Built in Fullerton, California while CBS still owned Fender, this guitar is in good, all original condition.
