Martin CS 00028 Adirondack and Cocobolo, 2017

Martin CS 00028 Adirondack and Cocobolo, 2017

From the Custom Shop, here’s a very nice Martin CS 00028 featuring an Adirondack Spruce top paired with Cocobolo for the sides, back and head plate. Martin’s Style 28 was introduced in 1870 and the 000 body size appeared in 1902, with one 000-28 built that year. These had 12-fret necks until 1933, with the change to 14-fret necks spurred by the great banjoist migration that began in the closing years of the 1920s.

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Electric XII 12-String Sunburst, 1966

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Electric XII 12-String Sunburst, 1966

Here’s a rarity from early CBS-owned Fender days – an original Fender Electric XII 12 string with the distinctive ‘bent’ or ‘hockey stick’ headstock! The Fender Electric XII uses the typical Fender approach to guitar construction. The body is Alder in a shape derived from Fender’s offset-waist guitars – the Jazzmaster and Jaguar. The split pickups feed through a rotary four-position switch, allowing a phase reversal in one of the combined positions. The rest of the controls are master volume and master tone.

⚌Reduced‼ Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley MIJ, 1987

⚌Reduced‼  Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley MIJ, 1987

Here’s something special! Not a reissue but an original, the Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley was built in Japan from 1985 to 1987 while Fender had no guitar production in the USA. The Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model was unique to this era though during 1968, Fender built a Paisley Telecaster. The finish uses a foil layer on top of the body wood and covered with a polyester sunburst layer. This Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model dates to 1987 and was built for Fender Japan by Fuji-Gen at Matsumoto, Nagano. It’s in good clean condition though it has definitely been played, as evidenced by the fingerboard wear.

⚌Reduced‼ Rickenbacker 360 Jetglo Black Hardware, 1988

⚌Reduced‼  Rickenbacker 360 Jetglo Black Hardware, 1988

The Rickenbacker 360 Jetglo finish is a gloss black treatment on a Maple body and neck. The original design for the 300 series guitars builds the body from two sections of Maple. The top cap is given an external shape, then the interior is routed out from the back to create a hollow cavity. After bracing and shaping, a flat Maple back is put on and on some models, the join is bound (there is no binding on the 330). This is why 360 body binding tends to be on the sound holes and back, only.
