❌SOLD❌  Fender 56/59 Stratocaster Rosewood Neck Sunburst

When Leo Fender first came up with the revolutionary bolt-together design that became the Telecaster, he considered serviceability and repairability. A bolt-on neck is easy to replace should it become damaged or excessively worn. Over the years, players have used this design feature to adapt instruments to their own requirements.

❌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.

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Super 400 Acoustic Archtop Sunburst, 1937

⚌Reduced‼ Gibson Super 400 Acoustic Archtop Sunburst, 1937

The Gibson Super 400 strode above most others when giant archtops roamed the earth, and is still one of the largest production guitars made.   Making its introduction in 1934 as the ‘Super L-5 Deluxe’, the non-cutaway model was quickly joined by a cutaway model, initially named the  Super 400 P for ‘Premiere’.   The ‘400’ designation was originally a reference to the price.  These were top of the line for acoustic archtop guitars, and were played by many top artists – Merle Travis being one.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES175 Sunburst Refinish, 1960

Here we have a Gibson ES175 sunburst, built during 1960 in Kalamazoo, Michigan and sporting a refinish and a pair of gold Guild humbuckers. The Gibson ES175 sunburst – its primary finish, though it was also available in natural at extra cost – was introduced in 1949 and produced until 2017. At that point, Gibson was restructuring and terminated several models and the Memphis plant. It is based on a number of previous Gibson arched top electric models, with Maple Laminates used for the body to reduce feedback.

SOLD Fender Jazz Bass Burgundy Refinish, 1962

Here we have a Fender Jazz Bass dating to 7 May 1962 with a Burgundy refinish replacing the original Sunburst. This is a fairly rare Rosewood Slab Board model, indicating a type of neck built in Fullerton, California until mid 1962. The Fender Jazz Bass was introduced in 1960, aimed at the Jazz bass players who had not adopted the Precision Bass or who wanted a thinner neck and more focused tone. The Offset Body that debuted on the 1958 Jazzmaster was used for the Jazz Bass body.
