Cole Clark Violap with Horseshoe Pickup Tasmanian Blackwood, 2003

Cole Clark Violap with Horseshoe Pickup Tasmanian Blackwood, 2003

The Cole Clark Violap is based on the classic Weissenborn steel guitar body shape, but built as a semi-hollow for amplified use without feedback. The concept is similar to the thinline Gibson ES-335 series, with a solid center block in an arched-top body. Cole Clark was founded in 2001 by Adam Cole and Bradley Clark in Melbourne Australia, and focuses on building quality instruments using sustainably harvested tone woods mostly native to Australia.

Rickenbacker Ken Roberts Electro Spanish Guitar, 1935

Rickenbacker Ken Roberts Electro Spanish Guitar, 1935

The Ken Roberts model not only has a pickup, the neck is also ‘extended’ to meet the body at the 17th fret, and it has a vibrato tailpiece designed by Doc Kaufman. This exceptionally rare example is in good playing condition. Most people associate the first electric guitars with Leo Fender or the Gibson Les Paul, but the Rickenbacker ‘Frying Pan’ lap steel guitar predated those by almost two decades, appearing in 1931.

❌ SOLD ❌ Rickenbacker 4003S Bass JetGlo, 2016

The Rickenbacker 4003 Bass is one of the most distinctive instruments. For some people, it evokes Chris Squire, for others McCartney, and for others…. Lemmy. Designed in the mid 1950’s by Roger Rossmeisl as a counterpoint to the highly successful Fender bass, the 4003 uses a ‘Cresting Wave’ body shape.

❌ SOLD ❌ Rickenbacker 4004Cii Cheyenne Bass FireGlo, 2008

The Rickenbacker 4004Cii is a bass we don’t see very often. Built using largely American farm-grown sustainable woods, this bass uses a body of Maple with Walnut core, and an Eastern Maple neck with a Bubinga fingerboard, running the length of the instrument. The 4004Cii Cheyenne uses the classic Cresting Wave body shape originally designed by Roger Rossmeisl in the late 1950’s, and still vibrant and evocative today.
