⚌Reduced‼ Fender Telecaster Custom Black, 1978

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Telecaster Custom Black, 1978

Here is a rare piece – a Fender Telecaster Custom with an original Wide Range Humbucker, a model produced from 1972 to 1981. Fender’s goal was to provide a guitar with a humbucker to compete with Gibson, and added a humbucker in the neck position, three way toggle switch, and individual volume and tone controls. This model was used by a number of prominent guitarists, including Keith Richards and The Edge.

Fender Stratocaster HardTail Black Refinish, 1977

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.

No Longer Available‼ MusicMan Stingray 4 Bass Black, 1978

No Longer Available‼  MusicMan Stingray 4 Bass Black, 1978

Here’s a rarity and bit of history – a MusicMan Stingray 4 Bass, built during 1978 in Fullerton, California by CLF Research for MusicMan. CLF stood for Clarence Leo Fender. MusicMan was founded in 1974 and in 1975, Leo Fender’s non-compete agreement lapsed and he became president of Music Man. Until 1979, MusicMan guitars and basses were built by Leo’s other company, CLF Research. After 1979 and until Music Man folded in 1984, Grover Jackson built the bodies and necks and assembled the instruments.
