Rickenbacker 4004Cii Cheyenne Bass FireGlo, 2008

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.

Fender Precision Special Bass Lake Placid Blue, 1980

Fender Precision Special Bass Lake Placid Blue, 1980

The Fender Precision Special bass was built from 1980 to 1982 as part of a trend to modernize some of Fender’s best sellers, particularly the Precision Bass and Stratocaster as ‘The Strat’.   These instruments were built at Fender’s historic Fullerton, California plant under CBS management. Using the same basic construction and materials, the Fender Precision Bass Special starts with an Ash body and one piece Maple neck, here finished in Lake Placid Blue with matching headstock and “Fender Precision Special” decal. However, the gold plated hardware and gold metal thumb rest start to hint that there are differences.

Gibson Les Paul Recording Model Natural, 1972

Gibson Les Paul Recording Model Natural, 1972

Built from 1971 to 1979, the Gibson Les Paul Recording model sported the features most desired by Les Paul himself, but unfortunately this did not translate into sales success. Still, even this low selling model was copied by Japanese builders during the ‘Lawsuit Era’. Constructed during the Norlin years with strong references to the original Les Paul Custom models, the Gibson Les Paul Recording model featured a Mahogany body with carved Mahogany top – unlike the Gold Top and Standard models, which had Maple caps on a Mahogany slab. At this point, Gibson was using what’s come to be called ‘Pancake’ bodies, with at least two narrower layers of Mahogany.

⚌Price Drop‼ Fender Eric Johnson Thinline Signature Stratocaster Vintage White

⚌Price Drop‼ Fender Eric Johnson Thinline Signature Stratocaster Vintage White

This model draws from the historic work of Roger Rossmeisl, a German luthier who was responsible for a number of Rickenbacker’s most popular semi-hollow models before Fender hired him away. One of his first designs became the 1969 Fender Telecaster Thinline. Grammy award winning and worldwide respected guitarist Eric Johnson knows a thing or two about tone. In 2015 Eric approached Fender about creating a light weight and resonant strat that would complement his playing style and provide his ideal liquid and articulate tone. Two years later a design that combined the tones of his favourite semi hollow bodies and his strat seemed to do the trick. That design became the Fender Eric Johnson Thinline Signature Stratocaster.
