2000 Allstrummer Thinline Steel Body Electric Guitar

Price: $1950
US Price: US $1552.92
*US dollar exchange varies daily
Consignment
Date Listed: 24-03-2017
S/N: N/A, built around 2000 by Robert Card in the Toronto area.
Here's an interesting piece of Canadian musical history - an Allstrummr thinline steel body cutway electric by Robert Card, who had worked for Lado. Around the year 2000 when this guitar was built, Lado (run by Joseph Kovacic) had moved from Uxbridge to Scarborough. It's not known if the guitar was built at the Lado shop.


This design significantly predates efforts like those of James Trussart, but does not have the finish effects Trussart is well known for. It is a steel body, with a shape rather like an ES-137, with a walnut neck and rosewood fingerboard (possibly Brazilian), brass nut and abalone dot position markers. On the rear of the head, there's an extra metal plate. Long ago, there was a plate like this commercially available under the name 'Fathead', intended to increase sustain and brightness. The tuners are Grover Roto-Matics, the pickups are Lollar humbuckers. The controls use a standard wiring layout. A leather gig bag is included.


This unusual guitar is in very good condition and plays well.

2016 Jason Kiefte Custom Thinline Archtop Bass Guitar

Price: $4500
US Price: US $3583.66
*US dollar exchange varies daily
Consignment
Date Listed: 23-03-2017
S/N: 1601
When I first saw the Kiefte Custom Thinline Archtop Bass Guitar, I thought it looked familiar; it is based on the successful Harrison GB Model thinline archtop electric guitar.


Jason Kiefte is Douglas Harrison's nephew, and this bass was built in the Harrison shop under Doug's supervision. The design is a good adaptation of the GB design (originally built for the late jazz guitarist Gary Benson), and brings out its strong points, including a warm, rich tone with plenty of brightness, resonance, clarity and tonal separation. It is also fairly light and well-balanced.


The Kiefte Custom is built with a bookmatched flame maple top on a semi-hollow, almost chambered two-piece mahogany back. The neck is 3-piece mahogany, graphite reinforced, with an ebony fingerboard and mother of pearl dot position markers and stainless steel frets and HipShot tuners. The pickup is a custom Double J model, with series / paralell options available on the tone control. The tailpiece and bridge are custom-made of ebony. A gig bag is included.


This is a very interesting, practical design and I expect we will see more of them in the future.

1969 Fender Pro Reverb Amplifier

Price: $1499.99
US Price: US $1194.54
*US dollar exchange varies daily
Consignment
Date Listed: 21-03-2017
S/N: A12498, built during 1969 at the Fender plant in Fullerton, California.
Built from 1965 to 1982, the Fender Pro Reverb amp originally pushed 40 tube watts (70 watts after 1976) out of a pair of 12 inch speakers.


This 'Silverface' example dates to 1969 and has been used as intended, so it's got some scuffing and the grillecloth has suffered a bit. The transformers date to 1968 and 1969, and it has been recently serviced so it's in good working order. Its footswitch is included.

Price: $4800
US Price: US $3822.57
*US dollar exchange varies daily
Consignment
Date Listed: 21-03-2017
S/N: 1280051, built during 2007 at the Martin plant in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
No longer in production, the Martin D-18 Authentic 1937 is a recreation of a pre-war guitar, built to 1937 specifications, with an Adirondack spruce top mahogany for the back, sides and neck. Indian rosewood is used for the fingerboard, headplate and bridge. This model was built from 2006 to 2012, and has been supplanted by the D-18 Authentic 1939.


This fabulous guitar is in good condition with a small, repaired crack by the bass side fingerboard tag. It has a huge sound with all the sparkle and presence of a well-played Martin. It dates to 2007 and the original hardshell case is included.

Price: $2700
US Price: US $2150.20
*US dollar exchange varies daily
Consignment
Date Listed: 21-03-2017
S/N: AD 26601, built during 2013 at the Heritage shop on Parsons Street in historic Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Built at the historic Parsons Street shop in Kalamazoo, Michigan, this Heritage H-550 Custom is a thin-body version of the standard H-550 model. The body depth is 2 1/4 inches, much slimmer than the standard 3 inch rim size.


The Heritage H-550 single-cutaway body is a full 17 inches wide, and built with laminated flame maple for stability and feedback rejection at volume. The neck is mahogany with a bound ebony fingerboard and mother of pearl split-block inlays. For electronics, the original Lollars have been replaced with Klein humbuckers. The original Heritage tailpiece is in the case, replaced by a Gibson copy. There's a plastic replacement for the maple pickguard in the case. The bridge is a stock TonePros tune-o-matic model.


This guitar dates to 2013 and is in very nice conditions. Wear is minor and there are no serious marks or dents. The original black arched-top hardshell case is included.

2006 Kenny Hill Torres 1856 Classical Guitar

Price: $4250
US Price: US $3384.57
*US dollar exchange varies daily
Consignment
Date Listed: 16-03-2017
S/N: 2559, built during 2006 at the Kenny Hill shop in Felton, California, USA.
The Kenny Hill Torres guitar, though it does not appear in his current catalog, is based on the most influential of classical guitar designs.


This example of the Kenny Hill Torres 1856 guitar was built during 2006 in Felton, California. It features an Englemann Spruce top and Indian Rosewood for the back, sides headplate and bridge, mahogany neck with an ebony fingerboard. Rubner tuners are installed, and the finish is French Polish.


The scale length on this guitar is 630mm, and the nut width 51mm.


Overall this guitar is in very good condition. Because French Polish offers relatively little physical protection (particularly compared to modern poly finishes, which offer considerably degraded acoustic performance) there is some light marking on the top as normal play and use wear. The guitar comes with an arched-top, hard shell TKL case.

Of course, it has a Bigsby, but this version has a string-through string bar - no more wrestling with little pins when changing strings. And at the other end of the string, it's got gold-plated Gotoh locking tuners. Filter 'Tron pickups and a gold-plated rocking bar bridge, and a set of locking strap pins round out the hardware.


This guitar is new, and comes with full warranty and all the case candy.
