❌SOLD❌ Fender Tele Sonic Chambered Solidbody Sunburst, 2003

❌SOLD❌ Fender Tele Sonic Chambered Solidbody Sunburst, 2003

The Fender Tele Sonic was built from 1998 to 2003, combining elements of several classic designs – the construction methods of the Fender Telecaster, the scale length of a Gibson style guitar, and a pair of DeArmond 2K single coil pickups, like a Gretsch Jet. There are other notable differences from stock models to the Fender Tele Sonic. The body is Honduran Mahogany, with tone chambers added. This would typically mean that, like the Telecaster Thinline, the top of the body blank is sliced off, tone and wiring chambers routed, the cap is restored and the body finished.

Gibson Les Paul Junior Cherry, 1962

Gibson Les Paul Junior Cherry, 1962

Gibson first introduced the Les Paul Junior with their 1954 model lineup as their lowest price student model, with one pickup and no frills. It kept that position until 1959, when it was bumped by the Melody Maker. From 1954, the Les Paul Junior had a profile very much like the Les Paul itself – it looked like the Les Paul’s Mahogany back, just without the carved Maple cap. For 1958, Gibson was shifting to double cutaway bodies, reflected in the brand new ES-335, and the Junior also got a double cutaway treatment.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Special TV Yellow, 1993

The construction of the Gibson Les Paul Special is simple. Mahogany is used for a slab body, and the neck. Rosewood is used for the bound fingerboard – and that’s it for wood selection. Hardware is also straightforward, with Kluson Deluxe tuners at the head – originally strip tuners, now individual gears -and at the other end, a stop bar tailpiece. Electronics include a pair of P-90 single coil pickups, pickup selector and individual volume and tone controls; the output jack is on the side.

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Anniversary 6124 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1963

❌SOLD❌ Gretsch Anniversary 6124 Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst,  1963

Originally built between 1958 and 1972, the Gretsch Anniversary 6124 was the Sunburst version of the two-tone 6125 model, both based on the successful 6120 Chet Atkins model. In its first two years, the Anniversary 6124/6125 carried a single Filter ‘Tron humbucking pickup at the neck, but from 1961 a single coil Hi-Lo ‘Tron was used. The basic structure or bones of the Gretsch Anniversary 6124 is very similar to the 6120, with a fully hollow, 16 inch wide body using parallel tone bar bracing and no sound post.
