⚌Reduced‼ Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Sunburst, 1978

Since its introduction as the Broadcaster in 1950 as the world’s first two-pickup, solidbody electric guitar, the Fender Telecaster has gone from strength to strength. It has been used in virtually every musical context that accepts electric instruments, and many musicians have built careers on its use. It’s truly an inspired design. Here we’re looking at a Fender Telecaster Maple Neck in Sunburst finish and largely original condition, built during 1978 in Fullerton, California during the CBS era.

❌SOLD❌  Fender 60th Anniversary Telecaster Blonde, 2011

The Fender 60th Anniversary Telecaster hews closely to the original 1951 design but also brings in meaningful modern improvements. The subtle nature of those improvements gives credit to the genius of Leo Fender’s creation; the most visible changes are a six-saddle bridge, modern staggered-post tuners, micro-tilt RW/RP pickups, medium-high fret wire and a ‘Delta Tone’ no-load tone control circuit.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster HardTail Black Refinish, 1977

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster HardTail Black Refinish, 1977

The Fender Stratocaster HardTail was available alongside the revolutionary and better known 1954 tremolo-equipped version, and only discontinued around 2010, due to declining sales. Many country and rhythm players preferred the Fender Stratocaster HardTail for perceived increases in ‘snap’, sustain and tonal separation, and a slightly ‘drier’ sound than comes from the lack of trem springs. While many players block or otherwise disable the Trem, hard tail Strats never sold like the trem versions have.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster Blonde, 1972

This Fender Telecaster Blonde is built during 1972 in Fullerton, California, is in good working order and with all original parts and case. For many years, this guitar had the ‘ashtray’ bridge cover in place, and much of the original, lighter blonde colour tone is visible where the cover extended past the bridge. The rest of the finish has naturally yellowed to a very nice butterscotch tone.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES175T Thinline Archtop Electric Wine Red, 1976

❌SOLD❌  Gibson ES175T Thinline Archtop Electric Wine Red, 1976

The Gibson ES175T is based on the classic full bodied ES175, but with sides just over half the thickness. This model appeared in Gibson Catalogs from 1976 to 1979. Before being discontinued, approximately 333 were shipped in the Wine Red finish seen here, Natural, and Sunburst. Sporting a single Florentine (pointed) cutaway, the Gibson ES175T has some visual similarities to other models, like the ES125TDC, except that it has higher grade appointments and hardware.
