The Fender 8 String Pedal Steel Model 400 circa 1967
Teisco Lap Steel model 'R' 1954
Pedal Steel Circa 1967
The very nice Fender Pedal Steel 8 string dated from approx. 1967 according to it's serial.
This one has the 4 pedals and would ideally suit many forms and styles of playing.
It's pickup is very Telecaster like but in the 8 string version so typical with that 60's twang to it. As you can see from the pics it's in real nice original condition and it also comes with it's original case. We got it from the family of the original owner and at the time they said that they had tried to use the pedals and cables to different tunings but must have stuffed it up a bit. But it's all 100% there just will need an expert in pedal steels to sort it out.
So any querestions you have feel free to send me an email.
If your into blues check out this real nice Teisco from 1954.
It has the art deco styling reminiscent of the empire state building. Being a lap steel it's pretty light, easy to play and 6 strings.
The chrome covers are still in excellent condition as is the pickup cover.
Knobs look period but I think might be aftermarket vintage style.
The tuners and finish is all original as well. It still has it's small metal plate showing the model number on the back of the headstock.
So an all original Lap Steel from 1954 and included it's original case. In EXC condition.
The GIBSON FLYING V
Another beautiful and Crazed
At the time Gibson made the V-83, this one is from the same time but with the rosewood fretboard and the alternate control layout.
So is it the V-83 ? Research has led me to believe yes it is a V-83.
This is one great playing guitar!
It features the 490R Alnico II magnet pickup in the neck and the Dirty Fingers at the bridge. This makes it one great sounding guitar. As can be seen in the pics it has had a lot of wear and crazing, some call this checking but it's the same thing. This also has the much rarer control layout normally seen on the custom shop models of the time. The bridge is a Gibson ABR-1 with the wire. Pickup selector is the standard 3 way switch as well as two volume and one tone control. Fretboard is rosewood and has dot inlays. The headstock again features the rare straight across Logo rather than the slightly slanted one. It has also aged and crazed as well as has the back of the headstock. The neck has also crazed and has no breaks etc. This is one great stage and/or studio guitar for the rock musician in you. These 'V's of the 70's and early 80's are getting more and more expensive nowadays so here is a great opportunity to get into one that certainly has that vibe of the 80's. Highly recommended.
Neck is the Gibson 490R Alnico II and Bridge is the Dirty Fingers
With those cool Cross Inlays
What a guitar.
A made in japan monster of a guitar, plays and sounds wicked, if your in a metal band or into goth music, this is the guitar you want to use on stage. It features the DOG FIGHTER pickups of the early 80's, the floating tremelo with the locking nut at the headstock. One volume and one tone control. Three way selector switch. Rosewood fretbaord with cross inlays. A very cool guitar, has a few dings here and there and a spot on the back where a sticker was removed and this took off part of the finish ( see pic).
No hard case just a soft vinyl guitar bag. Has just gone through a full setup including a fret level and polish, action and harmonics done, all parts polished that could be, looks amazing. One cool guitar
with the desirable Rosewood Fretboard
Here is another very cool Telecaster from 1978. This one is in black and features the Rosewood fretboard. The Rosewood board Te;e's are very desirable and are getting more and more expensive. This one has 1978 pots but the pickups are dated 1977. The solder has been touched up on the pots but other than that it's all there. It's just gone through our luthiers hands and is now fully setup with the strings and the action and harmonics are all adjusted now.
Tuners are original 'F' type from the era and the frets are in good condition as well as the fretboard. Overall I would say this is one great Tele that's waiting just for you.!
The case is an aftermarket moulded type. If your interested in the great Tele, just send me an email or give me a call.
The GIBSON EXPLORER PRO
What a guitar, in the beautiful amber finish and with some nice flame to boot.
This is the upgraded or as described as the 'Professional' model. It features top of the range details such as the flamed maple and fully bound top as well, the fretboard is ebony and features MOP block inlays and of course is fully bound as well.
It does come with the brown Gibson case which is pink lined but the case is for the full size explorer so the case is not original to this guitar.
Overall the guitar is in exc++ condition and has been through our luthiers hands etc and plays as good as it looks.
These are a very desirable option and are lighter and around 90% of the full size of the standard explorer.
Want to stand out on stage, this certainly will meet that.!
This is one cool looking Telecaster by Fender. Made in 1995 and the previous owner was a huge Jeff Beck fan so decided to make this Tele like Jeff's. So thats how it ended up looking like this. For those interested if you search for a Jeff Beck fender te;e, they are custom shop and priced at around the 30k in aussie dollars. So, want a Jeff Beck Tele, well then look no further. This one has had a few mods including a Lindy Frallin neck pickup and lot's of bofy work mods as can be seen. The headstock also features a spaghetti Logo and the round string tree, the neck plate has no serial. Black pickguard, vintage style saddles etc etc. Now overall condition, well it's excellent, plays and sounds like a custom shop tele but without the pricetag. This one cames with a non fender but fender style hard case.
Very recommended if your searching for that ultimate Tele..!
