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 DC Standard Amber, 2005

Gibson Les Paul DC Standard Amber, 2005

Drawing from the late 1950s double cutaway models, the Gibson Les Paul DC Standard features a heavily figured Maple cap on a Mahogany slab body, and Maple neck with bound, 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard and gold plated hardware. The hardware on this example is gold plated, with Grover Roto-Matic tuners at the head and an ABR/Stop Tailpiece set on the body. The neck pickup is shifted slightly towards the bridge, compared to a single cutaway Les Paul, to accommodate the longer 24 fret fingerboard. A pair of humbucking pickups feed to a standard 3-way switch, from there to a single Volume and Tone control, and finally to a side-mounted output jack.

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.

By 1936, he was listed in the Toronto Telephone Directory as either ‘Hansel’ or ‘Hansell’.
