Fender Jazz Bass Natural Refinish, 1966

Fender Jazz Bass Natural Refinish, 1966

Here is a Fender Jazz Bass Natural refinish, with body and neck built towards the end of 1965 but assembled, wired and sold in early 1966. The Jazz Bass was introduced in 1960, as Leo Fender’s second distinct bass after the two versions of the Precision Bass. Targeted towards Jazz players and taking design cues from the then-new Jazzmaster and Jaguar models, particularly the offset body, the Jazz Bass offered a brighter, more focused tone with less fundamental than the Precision Bass along with a much narrower neck.

Gibson Memphis ES345 64 Reissue Sea Foam Green, 2016

Gibson Memphis ES345 64 Reissue Sea Foam Green, 2016

Here’s a beauty from the now-closed shop – a Gibson Memphis ES345 64 Reissue thinline archtop electric in an unusual Sea Foam Green finish! This was a limited edition model for the 2016 year. Introduced in 1958 as a midpoint between the groundbreaking ES-335 and upscale ES-355, the Gibson ES-345 featured the same core construction as the two bracketing models. A thinline body built with Maple laminate and a solid Maple center block, routed for pickups, and a Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard are common to the three models (except for the ES355’s Ebony fingerboard with Mother of Pearl block markers).

Gibson Melody Maker Single Cutaway Sunburst, 1960

Gibson Melody Maker Single Cutaway Sunburst, 1960

Introduced in 1959 as a student model just below the Les Paul Junior, the Gibson Melody Maker wound up in the hands of a number of professional rock guitarists. The Melody Maker was built from 1959 to 1971, in single and double pickup (the Melody Maker D) versions, in full scale and short scale. The original single cutaway model seen here was built until late 1960, then replaced with a double cutaway version. In 1966, the body shape changed to the pointed-horn SG style. In 1971, the line was dropped in favour of the SG-100 and SG-200 models, which lasted one year.

Fender 57 Hot Rod Stratocaster Sunburst, 2011

Here’s a great playing Fender 57 Hot Rod Stratocaster in a 3-tone sunburst, and original parts except for a replacement Fender body. The original body was flawed, and replaced under warranty by Fender. Introduced around 2007, the Fender 57 Hot Rod Stratocaster hews closely to the original design with one piece Maple neck and Alder body, but the hardware has a number of factory upgrades, some not immediately apparent.
