FOR MORE ENQUIRIES REGARDING THIS UNIQUE COLLECTION PLEASE CONTACT RIC DIRECTLY
A beautiful collection of all 9 colour's from the collection, you can find the odd one here or there but to have the whole collection is a rarity. Neck dates are all S9 but as we all know these are basically all from 1981. Fender brought these out as a special and were offered to dealers in batches which some dealers but not all took up. Now in the 21st century 70's and 80's Strat's values are all shooting up comparing with new prices etc so when looking at investment wise nearly 40 years old vintage Strat's plus custom colouring makes this a great choice for those wishing to collect a special collection indeed.
A very cool factory finish Anniversary Stratocaster from 1979, in the pics you can see the original colour, the Pearl White which now has faded to a beautiful yellowish / creme colour. In my professional opinion yes a factory finish. The guitar has been hanging in someones house for many many years and now it's in our care till it has a new home. A great playing guitar, first of the 4 bolt neck's in 79, black dot inlays, black pick guard and pickup covers, a real looker. It also has it's original case. The tremelo arm and the backplate are not original to this guitar and appear to be aftermarket, but they do the job. Fretboard is also in excellent condition as are the tuners and frets. A very cool guitar in EXC+ condition.
Here is a great Strat from 79 in a great natural finish with lot's of grain in the timber. The pick guard is the black/white/black style with black knob's.
Pickups are the EMG type that also have a great sound, some people actually prefer these to original pickups, but whatever one's choice is this is what it has. Fretboard is maple and also has the large headstock with the 'F' style tuners. It comes with it's original case, play excellent, look's fabulous etc. Overall in EXC + CONDITION
The Fender Jaguar, thin skin nitrocellulose finish, in as new condition, custom 'rare' colour with the rarer matching headstock, beautiful. Rosewood fretboard, dot inlays, all the case candy including the page with 'how to use' the pickups and switches. Yes a very nice guitar and basically another under the bed special. Bough many years ago new from the states but now available through us. It's in real nice condition and only has one slight blemish in the finish which you can see in the pics. Overall it's one great guitar and if your chasing a Jaguar with a matching headstock and in a super rare colour this is the one for you. Comes highly recommended by us. In exc++ condition and comes with all the case candy and original case. Sweet.!!
THE Strat's from the 70's are becoming more and more desirable as prices are rising and there being snapped up by players and some collectors. This beautiful example is from 1975, 45 years ago, and comes with some case candy as can be seen in the pics. Overall the finish is in pretty nice condition but does have a few belt buckle marks on the back. This one also has it's original 3 way switch still in position and as such I think sounds fantastic. All electrics as in pickups and pot's are original etc. The fretboard is a great maple board with black dot markers and the skunk stripe. The tuners are all original 'F' as well. So, overall an excellent example of a BLACKIE and very desirable indeed. Highly recommended as prices are just going up and up on these.
If your looking for a Fender STRATOCASTER from the CUSTOM SHOP, this is a very nice example of the
1969 Strat. Another fine example of Fender custom shop workers. This one in particular has been used as a recording guitar for a local band here in Perth. Why, well because it sound's so great but alas now it's time to move it on to it's new owner. As can be seen in the pics it comes with all the case candy as put out by Fender. It has the black finish with both the maple fretboard and the large headstock, also the fretboard has black dot markers. A great playing Strat and please note there are some scratches on the back. Overall in EXC condition and comes with it's original custom shop case.
Here is a Fender from July 1962 PRE CBS, has the Brazilian rosewood fretboard with clay dot's, tuners look like the original style but are replacement, bridge and saddles original. Pickups are Seymour Duncan 1/4 pounder which give the guitar a very lively sound as these pickups have that reputation. The Duo Sonic is a shorter scale guitar it plays with ease and is very light. Has the 3 way selector and 1 x tone and 1 x volume switch. So if your in a band and want something vintage looking without the attached price I can recommend this guitar. Comes also with a non original hard case VGC++
STEPH FROM BRUSNWICK VICTORIA
Just arrived is a Cool Musicmaster dates 1960/61 from it's serial, it's in that burst red finish rather than a mono colour. The fretboard of course is a Brazilian rosewood slab board and has the desired clay dot inlays. All pot's, capacitor, saddles and tuners are original. No changed parts. Pickguard is still nice and white as can be seen in the pics. Surface rust on the tuners and saddles truly give it that vintage look. The players that used these are Mickey "Dean Ween" Melchiondo of Ween, Dweezil Zappa and Liz Phair - even Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn were said to use the Musicmasters early in there career's. The case is an old one that has seen better days as well so could really now use a new case. These early Musicmasters have always been highly playable and have always had a great sound to them of which this one is of no exception. Overall in VGC and has lot's of wear and chips in the finish etc. Cool.!
ANOTHER VERY COLLECTABLE STRATOCASTER JUST IN..!! Here is a classic vintage DAKOTA RED stratocaster from Fender, year is 1969 so this year it's celebrating it's 50th birthday and what a guitar it is. This one came in a couple of month's ago but needed a serious fret job as the previous 'butcher' ( no offence to butcher's here..lol ) tried to do a refret but well as you can imagine did a horrific job. Now though the fretwork by our top luthier here in Perth did an absolutely wonderful job 10/10. So let me give you a description now of this great vintage classic. This is the second time we've had this guitar in, the first time was about 10 years ago but luckily for us it's back in our hands. It has the rosewood fretboard which has just undergone an extensive refret as mentioned, now it has original width frets but slightly taller so they should last many years of playing, the tuners are 'f' type and of course original, pickups, pick guard, covers etc are original, as can be seen it has the mother of pearl underneath which was a common thing they did at Fender back then, it still has it's untouched 3 way switch, all wiring is original but it does look like one solder earth wire was 'maybe' done in the past (sometimes it's very hard to distinguish whether this was done at the factory or not..? ) As can be seen from the pics all the pick guard, cover & knobs are well used and have gone a beautiful deep creme in colour. Also you can see plenty of real players wear as this guitar was used by a professional player. The backplate is still with the guitar which seems quite rare nowadays as well as the tremolo arm which is original as well. The neck pocket had been routed out by a previous owner many years ago who had no idea what these guitars are worth and as such does effect it's value to a degree but it's still a 69' Strat and as such very collectable and desirable to play and own. This guitar will be featured in a new video segment in a week or two so keep checking the new arrivals page etc. Overall in VGC very playable, sounds oh so cool, what a guitar...highly recommended for the collector.

CANDY APPLE RED
Here's a very nice condition Fender Strat Plus model featuring Lace Sensor pickups. Made in 1996, has a very nice candy apple red/cherry finish with that aged pearloid look pick guard as well.
Has been very well looked after and as such has no significant dings or marks except on the side of the fretboard a very small mark. Other than that looks exc+. Has been through the full setup, plays extremely well, sound's very cool as you would expect. Looking for that Strat but without that vintage price tag then this is your next closest step. Wait another 10 years and this will be vintage..!! as now even 80's guitars are 40 years old and are still desirable should you not have the budget etc. Comes with some case candy and a great fender case.

SOLD TO TRACEY
with slightly modified body shape
Of the many guitars produced by Fender the Mustang was the small bodied electric with just two single coil pickups, two slide switches for those pickups and volume controls etc, very basic but a much. loved guitar played by many legends, these also record well and being quite light you can hang one of these around your neck all night long. This one having dates from 1966 and parts of the same era such as pickups, shielding etc has been assembled from parts such but still is a great player. Ok not 100 % original but definitely a players guitar, finish is 'Daphne blue' but look's more like baby blue and has been hand sanded to give it that age feel, condition is still good, sound very cool, plays well, rosewood fretboard is also excellend condition etc...and comes with a nice hard case...
priced to sell
A very underrated guitar by Fender from the very early eighties etc. The Lead 3 featured split coil pickups x two and two 3 way switches so there was quite a varied sound combination you could achieve. It's quite a light guitar so if your small statured or maybe a girl who is looking for something not to heavy but with that vintage vibe this is a great way to go. It has a beautifully aged blonde finish with some marks here and there as would be expected from a guitar nearly 40 yr's old, overall though in great condition and comes with a nice hard case as well...
Wanna see how an early 70's Strat plays, then watch
DEEP PURPLE with SMOKE ON THE WATER....PLAYING A 71/72 STRAT, LARGE HEADSTOCK JUST LIKE THIS ONE...of course there is no difference of how these were made between 72 & 75
Just in a very nice FENDER STRATOCASTER 1975 IN SUNBURST, under light's this has a vibrant colour as can be seen in the pics etc, would make a great stage guitar. This one comes to us with the maple fretboard, large headstock, 3 bolt neck, 3 ply pick guard, all electrics are original, earth wire needed to be re-soldered for the earth as was a touch noisy but fixed beautifully etc, plays great and sounds like a classic vintage Strat from the 70's of course. Has gone through a setup but of course these are a general setup and should you have special setup requirement's I'm sure your luthier can do it to suit. Does have some slight crazing etc but this add's the beauty of course. It has an original case still in pretty good condition as all the locks work etc, overall a great guitar and at a great price either for a collector to start a nice collection or the player, either way you won't be dissapointer with this vintage Strat from the 70's. exc. cond.
The 60's produced many different models including Fender doing some unusual acoustics, among them was the not too popular Kingman, although now still not in the same vain as Gibsons or martins for example, but still 'cool' non the less...here is one from the late 60's (68) we believe, has the Strat style large headstock, a fully bound neck like the jaguars, rosewood fretboard with the large mother of pearl inlays, what you will notice is lot's of crazing/pealing on the back especially, of course doesn't effect playability, Ive seen new ones advertised in Australia for $2795 aud...for $500 more get a genuine vintage acoustic from the 60's with a Fender acoustic pickup.g/cond. original but beat up case...
