Nechville Leon Hunt Phantom Flame Maple, 2013

Nechville Leon Hunt Phantom Flame Maple, 2013

The Nechville Leon Hunt Phantom Model, while not a ‘formal’ Nechville model, is based on the Nechville Phantom XXV (Phantom 25). It uses all the Nechville Phantom elements plus very highly figured maple for the neck and resonator (rather than the stock figured walnut construction), with a slight amber tint to the finish. These spectacular banjos are based closely on the Nechville banjo made for Leon Hunt.

Sergei de Jonge Classical Guitar Natural, 1980

Sergei de Jonge Classical Guitar Natural, 1980

This Sergei de Jonge Classical guitar was built during 1980 in Toronto, following de Jonge’s return to Canada from a year in Holland and creation of a new workshop. Having learned guitar building in Toronto during the years 1969 to 1971 from Jean Larrivee and Edgar Monch via Eli Kassner, and then a year with Patt Lister in Collingwood, this de Jonge classical shows these strong influences.

J Perfecto Rubio Estudio Classical Natural, 2014

J Perfecto Rubio Estudio Classical Natural, 2014

Here is an unusual item! Built during 2014 in Guanajuato, Mexico, this is a J Perfecto Rubio Estudio model; the builder is a cousin of famed luthier German Vazquez Rubio of Los Angeles, who worked for Bernardo Rico when B C Rich models were new.  We do not see many Mexican-built guitars in Canada, and in that number, high quality models like this are even rarer.

Gibson Les Paul Signature Thinline Gold Top, 1973

Gibson Les Paul Signature Thinline Gold Top, 1973

Introduced during 1973 and built until 1979 – the Norlin era – the Gibson Les Paul Signature Thinline Gold Top, is a rarity, and as a guitar has never been re-issued in any form. We have seen in-person one other example, during the 1980s, in The Twelfth Fret repair shop. Approximately 1,400 Gold Top models were built, and under 100 in Sunburst. It was also available as a bass. This model uses the construction of an ES-335, but its asymmetrical body has approximately the top half of a 335 and the bottom half of a Les Paul.

Fender Special Edition Stratocaster Aztec Gold MIM, 2003

Fender Special Edition Stratocaster Aztec Gold MIM, 2003

The term ‘Closet Classic’ could be applied to this striking Aztec Gold Fender Special Edition Stratocaster, Made in Mexico during 2003. This guitar appears to have been never played and there is no play wear at all. The original protective plastic film is still on PG and backplate! Some of the red-gold colouring on the metal components has light tarnish and that’s it. Aside from that, this guitar is as-new.
