❌SOLD❌  Fender Red Paisley Telecaster MIJ, 1994

In 1968, the Fender Red Paisley Telecaster appeared, used by one of the hottest players on one of the hottest stages – James Burton and Elvis Presley! Also available in a ‘Blue Flower’ finish – the same idea, but with flowers and a blue tint, these finished did not last long in the Fender catalog. These models have been reissued from time to time, and in 1994 and 1995 the Fender Red Paisley Telecaster was built for Fender Japan by Fuji-Gen Gakki in Matsumoto, Nagano Japan.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley MIJ, 1987

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley MIJ, 1987

Here’s something special! Not a reissue but an original, the Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley was built in Japan from 1985 to 1987 while Fender had no guitar production in the USA. The Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model was unique to this era though during 1968, Fender built a Paisley Telecaster. The finish uses a foil layer on top of the body wood and covered with a polyester sunburst layer. This Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model dates to 1987 and was built for Fender Japan by Fuji-Gen at Matsumoto, Nagano. It’s in good clean condition though it has definitely been played, as evidenced by the fingerboard wear.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Dot Thinline Heritage Cherry, 2012

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES335 Dot Thinline Heritage Cherry, 2012

The Gibson ES335 Dot reissue draws from the groundbreaking 1958 ES-335 that blended archtop and solidbody guitar styles. Gaining immediate acceptance by players in many genres, this model has been in production continuously since its introduction. Here we’re looking at what looks like a ‘Plain Top’ version of the Gibson ES335 Dot, built at the now-closed Gibson Memphis plant and dating to June 7, 2012. In terms of construction and hardware, these are identical to the much more expensive ‘Figured Top’ models; the difference is the figuring on the Maple laminates used for the top, sides and back.

❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker 1997SPC Fireglo, 2000

❌SOLD❌  Rickenbacker 1997SPC Fireglo, 2000

The Rickenbacker 1997SPC reproduces the three-pickup 1997 model built 1964 to 1967 for export to the United Kingdom, largely sold by Rose Morris and featuring a ‘traditional’ F hole rather than the Rickenbacker slash.
Based on the model 330 designed by expatriate German luthier Roger Rossmeisl and introduced in 1958 and similar to the 340, the original 1997 differed largely in having the narrow violin type F shaped soundhole and a third pickup.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster 57 Vintage Reissue Tobacco Sunburst, 2003

This Fender Stratocaster 57 Vintage model built during 2003 is one of several lines of vintage reproductions, bringing back the features and aesthetics of classic models. This Fender Stratocaster 57 Vintage is in overall good, but not entirely original, condition. With a light ash body and one-piece V profile Maple neck and finished in a thin, fifties-style two tone tobacco sunburst lacquer, and with single layer pickguard, this example hews closely to the 57 specs.
