Deering Vega Woodsongs Campfire Long Neck Banjo in near mint condition with original Vega case

Playing in E on a banjo is always a challenge: that is why Pete Seeger had the long neck built for him. These are normally played with the neck capo’ed up three frets and the 5th string capo tack in use so the banjo is played in G.

But when you want to switch to the big, full bass growl town when playing in E, you simply un-capo and you are ready to rock and roll!

Built around the Vega Little Wonder model, the wood tone ring pot lends itself perfectly to the full bass tone of a long neck
We stock the Campfire model but I’ve never had a used one show up. This one is near mint.

Gibson ES-135 Tobacco Burst 2001 (Consignment) SOLD

Gibson ES-135 Tobacco Burst 2001 (Consignment)  SOLD

Here’s a lovely Gibson ES-135 Tobacco Burst, built during 2001 in Memphis, Tennessee.

The ES-135 was originally built from 1956 to 1958, and then again from 1999 to 2002. Some models had P-100 pickups — stacked, humbucking versions of the P-90 – and others, like this one, featured standard humbuckers.

This example is in near mint condition. It has an interesting quirk – the label identifies it as an ES-335!

Fender Stratocaster ‘Hardtail’ Sunburst 1977 (consignment) Sold

Fender Stratocaster 'Hardtail' Sunburst 1977 (consignment) Sold

Here’s a Fender Stratocaster ‘Hardtail’ from 1977. The Stratocaster, one of the manifestations of Leo Fender’s genius, was introduced in 1954 with options for floating trem bridge and hard-tails, employing the back-of-body string ferrules found on the Telecaster. The hardtail verion was produced in smaller numbers until 2007, when it was discontinued. Hard-tail strats have a little more attack, bite, and sustain due to the lack of spring tension absorbing some energy.

Fender Jaguar 1965 (consignment) Sold

Here’s a lovely Fender Jaguar from 1965, in good condition.

Fender introduced the Jaguar in 1962. Its 24.75″ scale length was intended to make it attractive to players who preferred the shorter scale of Gibson guitars — this can make complex chord voicings easier to reach.

However, the Jaguar didn’t catch on much outside the Surf music community, and production ended in 1975. In the early 1990’s, Fender Japan started making reissues, and by 1999 US production had resumed.
