❌SOLD❌ Tony Duggan Smith Mystic Short Scale Archtop Blonde, 1995

Here is a treat – a Tony Duggan Smith Mystic, a short scale (21.89 inch, 556mm) cutaway archtop built during 1995 at Duggan-Smith’s Toronto shop. Tony Duggan-Smith has been around the Canadian arts music and film scene for decades.  He was a member of the Pukka Orchestra and Neotone after apprenticing with Jean Larrivee and leading the repair department at Ring Music, then run by Bill Wagner and Michael McLuhan (yes that McLuhan.),  and has also over a decade of work in the film industry.  One of his current projects is the Apprehension Engine, an instrument specifically designed for use in horror films.

❌SOLD❌ Maton MS500 Solidbody Electric Guitar Dark Green, 2001

❌SOLD❌ Maton MS500 Solidbody Electric Guitar Dark Green, 2001

In North America, guitars like the Australian-built Maton MS500 Mastersound are fairly rare, though they are common in their home countries. This is often due to three factors, none of which reflect quality – distance (shipping costs), import duties and distribution chains. Here we’re treated to a Maton MS500 solidbody electric, built during 2001 at the Maton shop in Box Hill, Victoria, Australia – near Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay. Like other Maton products we’ve seen, it is well thought out, very well built and finished, and incorporates indigenous wood species wherever possible.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Mustang Dakota Red, 1965

❌SOLD❌  Fender Mustang Dakota Red, 1965

Appearing in 1964 as part of a revamp of Fender’s entry level line, the Fender Mustang Dakota Red was the lowest priced model that included a tremolo tailpiece. The Mustang was also available in Blue and White. In 1965, following the sale of Fender to CBS, the Mustang – along with other models – received some immediate rebranding. The serial number plate and the tuning machine casings were stamped with a letter F.   On the Mustang, the headstock was also enlarged, a change also applied to the Stratocaster.
