FENDER

STRATOCASTER

40TH ANNIVERSARY

1994

 

The Fender Stratocaster first saw light in 1954, and this one here is the 40th Anniversary model brought out by Fender in 1994. This one is in great condition and comes in the poodle case which also has the logo on the outside as can be seen in the pics.

The guitar features a 2 colour sunburst finish, maple fretboard and neck, staggered pole piece pickups a 3 way switch and a single ply pickguard. Sound wise it has tones reminiscent of a early 50's strat and also the looks to match. Overall another great guitar in EXC+++ condition.

GRECO

12 STRING

(Greconbacker)

1994

MADE IN

JAPAN

One very cool GRECO 12 STRING from 1994. Of course it's a direct copy of the original Rickenbacker but at a fraction of the price. These Greco's which are made in Japan to exacting standards are a dream to play. This model has the same 'sound' as the Ric's but you'll save big dollars with this option. It features aa fully bound neck and body, and beautiful dark rosewood  fretboard, shark tooth style inlays, a slim neck profile which is so easy to play considering it's a 12 string. 2 great pickups, 2 x tone and 2 x volume and a 3 way switch. Overall in EXC++ condition and it also come's with an original Rickenbacker case. COOL.!

STRATOCASTER

1975

VIBRANT SUNBURST

FINISH

 

Wanna see how an early 70's Strat plays, then watch

DEEP PURPLE with SMOKE ON THE WATER....PLAYING A EARLY 70'S STRAT, LARGE HEADSTOCK SIMILAR TO THIS ONE...of course there is almost no difference of how these were made 

...Enjoy

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.

If your looking for a 3/4 bass but with that jazz feel to it this is the bass for you. Features 2 jazz bass style pickups, a beautiful maple fretboard, painted matching headstock, see thru pick guard etc.

DAION

POWER

MK XX

CIRCA 1981

These DAION guitars definitely have that vintage collectability to them, made between 79 and 82 I believe, this one dates to 81+/- and comes with the original receipt from the original owner. It has a very beautiful multi timber centre and utilising from what Ive read a Brazilian rosewood centre stripe and ebony fretboard. The pickups are hum buckers and it does have a 3 way switch plus 2 additional switches to phase in or out the hum buckers. The knobs are a reddish timber as well and the guitar itself is in a great cherry finish. The quality of this is in the same league as either a high quality gibson or prs guitar. Considering this guitars age at around 40 years in in great EXC. condition and comes with it's original case.One great guitar. Sounds great as well. Offers welcome

PRE CBS

1962

with

MOD'S

2 Tone

Sunburst

 

 

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++

JIMMY PAGE

number

'TWO'

by

EDWARDS

Japan

2005

 

 

A very cool JIMMY PAGE number 2 (two) guitar by EDWARDS of Japan. These were specifically designed and made for the Japanese market exclusively but alas we have one..!

Firstly as can be seen in the headstock pics it has 'Gibson' and Les Paul style logo's these were added by a previous owner as was the custom shop logo on the back of the neck. These guitars sell for many times more so please dont be confused., This is an EDWARDS..!

So how cool are the flames on this guitar as well as the colour, it certainly has that late 50's vibe of the Gibson Les Pauls of the era. This one is the JIMMY PAGE number 2 so it has the same features such as push pull volume and tone knobs which do all sorts of wonderful things making that Jimmy tone possible super circuit, Long tenon neck going, neck has the satin feel, and beautifully relied to a very high standard, overall in exc++ condition, also comes with a hard case (tight fit).

GRETSCH

VIKING

1967

RARE 'BLONDE'

  

Second only to the GRETSCH WHITE FALCON this VIKING is a beautiful guitar from 1967. Finished in the more desirable blonde it just looks oh so good. Many years ago it had the binding on the body and fretboard redone but the headstock still has the original binding which of course is showing wear with one spot as can be seen in the pics about (6mm or 1/4") missing. Overall the guitar is in exccondition with the blonde finish still looking really great. The pick guard does has a small crack where the screw goes thru but you can still get pick guards so this can be replaced. This one also has the intact 'tuning fork' and the mute selector, and the back vinyl is also still there. Featuring two great pickups these sound just so great, whether your into rockabilly, county or rock you not going to be disappointed with this beauty. The fretboard is of course ebony which is one of my favourite materials next to aged rosewood and both give you that unique sound. Gretsch's are and always have been great guitars and especially from the 60's...the Gretsch style Bigsby is another great feature as is the roller bridge...comes with it's original slightly beat up case

GIBSON ES-335

between

1970 & 1972

early 70's serial

WALNUT FINISH

 

Here we have another great GIBSON ES-335 from the very early 70's, serial dating put's it bewtween 1970 & 1972. The walnut finish is still in great shape and only shows minor crazing etc, no major dings or scratches overall the finish is quite good on the body. The neck has that 60's feel to it and shows 1 spot of wear through of about 1cm round or so. Pickups are of course patent number with a 3 way selector and 2 x volume and 2 x tone. The 335 features a solid block running from the neck to the back of the guitar which is where these get there magic tone from, and of course this is a tone monster, no doubt about that..! The fretboard is Brazilian rosewood with binding and mother of pearl block inlays. the binding overall shows that nice yellowing which basically all 335 of this age do giving it that unique vintage vibe and look. Overall a tone monster waiting for it's new owner. In exc+ condition and comes with it's original case.

GIBSON

SG

1975

CHERRY

 

 

Just arrived is the very cool and vintage Gibson SG from 1975. At one stage this model had the vibrola arm installed but now features the stop tailpiece instead. Everything else on the guitar including pot's, switches and knobs are all original as are the 'gibson' tulip style tuners. Fretboard is rosewood and has the bound fretboard and block style inlays. Two killer hum buckers give it a great sound as one would expect. The SG is very light of course so this is a guitar you can play all night on stage, it has been featured in a small way in the above video versus a Greco sg so you can hear what it sounds like etc. Overall in VGC+++ And comes with a non original newish style hard case

GIBSON

ES-345

1967

CHERRY FINISH

 

A GREAT COLLECTORS PIECE

A beautiful GIBSON ES-345 from 1967, in the great cherry finish which I believe is the most desirable, it is the stereo model with the varitone sector switch giving many different options for the sound you desire. This model was more expensive at the time than it's junior brother the 335 as stereo was just catching on, but now after more than 50 years the 335 has also become very collectable as has this one. Of course this one features the trapeze tailpiece, split diamond mother of pearl inlays, brazilian rosewood fully bound fretboard  deluxe kluson tuners and the binding has aged to the very cool looking cream colour. Most collectors keep them in the stereo or have a very small mod. done which can easily be reversed and make it mono, if you wish to keep it in stereo you will need a stereo to mono lead, so whether you are a collector or professional you will enjoy the beauty of this model, it's killer sound and the ease of how it plays. Comes with a original hand tag from gibson and it's original case. exc+++ condition , again a highly recommended guitar

STRAT-PLUS

1996

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.
