❌SOLD❌ Fender American Vintage ’72 Telecaster Custom Reissue Sunburst, 2012

❌SOLD❌ Fender American Vintage '72 Telecaster Custom Reissue Sunburst, 2012

The Fender American Vintage 72 Telecaster recreates a version of the Telecaster built from 1972 to 1981, a major change from the Tele Custom introduced in 1959. For 1959 with the introduction of Rosewood fingerboards, Fender introduced an ‘upmarket’ Telecaster Custom, with the new Rosewood board and a body with binding around the top and back. The rest of the guitar was standard Telecaster. However, by 1972, Fender Marketing was feeling pressured because of its close association with thin and bright single coil pickups, while Gibson was almost synonymous with fat sounding humbuckers.

❌SOLD❌  Royal Aire by National Solidbody Electric Guitar Sunburst, 1951

Here is a rarity – a Royal Aire by National solid body electric guitar, dating to 1951 and one of the earliest production electrics for National and its parent Valco.  Clearly a National model given its construction and components,  Royal Aire branded instruments are few and far between.  Around 1947, Valco contracted with Gibson to produce some Royal Aire flat top acoustics, based on the LG-3.  Here,  Valco / National used a National neck with its shield logo plate engraved to read Royal Aire.

❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker 4004Cii Cheyenne Bass FireGlo, 2008

❌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.
