❌SOLD❌ Maton FG100 Steel String Guitar, 1986

❌SOLD❌ Maton FG100 Steel String Guitar, 1986

Here is another rarity for North America – a Maton FG100 /6, built in Victoria, Australia during July of 1986. It is one of the last, if not the last, built when this model was discontinued in 1986. It also has a secondary label from its original seller – Ivor Mairants Musicentre in the London’s West End! Maton guitars are not commonly distributed in North America. One of the best known Maton artists is the great Tommy Emmanuel, and we’re very happy to link to a video of him using a Maton – though not this model.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Trans Red Maple Neck, 1979

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Trans Red Maple Neck, 1979

Here’s a Fender Stratocaster Trans Red with Maple Neck, built during the CBS in Fullerton, California, in good clean condition and a fairly rare colour. If you count the Broadcaster/Telecaster and Esquire as one basic design and the revolutionary 1952 Precision Bass as another, the Stratocaster was Leo Fender’s third complete Spanish style guitar design, though he also built a number of Hawaiian or Steel guitar models. Immediately successful, the Strat has stayed in production since its 1954 introduction.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Shop ’69 Stratocaster Relic White, 2006

❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Shop '69 Stratocaster Relic White, 2006

Here we’re looking at a Fender Custom Shop ’69 Stratocaster in the Relic version, built during 2006 at the Fender plant in Corona, California. It’s in very good condition with only light wear – beyond the relic treatment! Closely following 1969 specs, the body is Alder and the neck is Maple. There’s no ‘skunk stripe’ on the back of the neck – the rolled-edge fingerboard is a piece of Maple, applied in the same way a Rosewood board would be, and the truss rod was installed from the front of the neck before the fingerboard was installed.
