Fender Stratocaster Natural Finish, 1972

For most of the time since its 1954 introduction, the Fender Stratocaster has been very popular and has been available in a myriad of colours, though natural has not always been one of them. The first versions were often sunburst or translucent white, but automotive based colour schemes followed quickly.

The Ernie Ball Music Man JP6 John Petrucci model is a very well designed and built guitar, with direct links back to Leo Fender’s work – Leo was a silent partner in what became Music Man, silent due to a 10 year no-competition clause in his sale of the Fender company to CBS in 1965.

❌ SOLD ❌ Flaxwood Rautia 2HB-T Resonator Guitar, 2012

❌ SOLD ❌ Flaxwood Rautia 2HB-T Resonator Guitar, 2012

The Flaxwood Rautia is an innovative instrument built in a small town in Finland. What makes it unusual is the use of shattered wood with other composites, and injection molding it. They have named the material, and the company, Flaxwood. Our observation has been that composites often have a variety of shortcomings, but Flaxwood seems to have addressed many of them.

❌ SOLD ❌ Lado Falcon Custom Electric Solidbody Zebrawood, 1983

❌ SOLD ❌ Lado Falcon Custom Electric Solidbody Zebrawood, 1983

The Lado Falcon is a quintessential 1980’s guitar, pairing sustain and clarity with visual effects and playability. These guitars, like those from BC Rich and other builders, provided serious alternatives to Fender and Gibson models. The Lado Guitar Company was founded by Joseph Kovacic and for many years was based at 920 Kingston Road in Toronto. The next tenant was the brand-new Guitarists’ Pro Shop run by Grant MacNeill and Dan Charman named The Twelfth Fret. Lado moved to larger quarters in Scarborough, and in 1981 to a much larger facility in Uxbridge, Ontario, about 74 kilometers north of Toronto.
