    Gently used Fender Custom Shop 1970 reliced Strat. Big headstock, big tone … this new Custom Shop offering harkens back to the last of the best vintage Strats. And the charcoal frost metallic finish is something you just don’t see every day. Fender says: The 1970 Strat® marks the end of an era. It was the last year of the four-bolt neck joint, original factory synchronized tremolo with stamped saddles, and heel-adjust truss rod. Body contours changed dramatically in 1971, clad in much thicker polyurethane finishes. Indeed, 1970 was the last year the Strat held true to its purest original design elements. To honor this benchmark model, we’re introducing a faithful recreation with several custom modifications that players and aficionados will appreciate. The two-piece select alder body of the 1970 Stratocaster® Journeyman Relic® has a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish. Its two-piece rift-sawn maple neck has a 1969 “U” profile, walnut “skunk stripe” and a lacquer-face large ’70s-style headstock with a darker aged appearance. The rosewood fingerboard has a comfortable modern 9.5” radius and 21 narrow tall frets. A three-ply nitro pickguard holds three hand-wound ’69 Strat pickups (reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup) and a Vintage Modified #2 control assembly with Greasebucket™ tone circuit, which keeps mids and highs without adding bass when rolling back the tone control. Other features include vintage style “F” tuning machines, five-way switch and vintage-style Custom Shop synchronized tremolo. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity. Condition: Light relic; Body: Alder; Neck: riftsawn maple, 69 U profile, 9.5 radius; Nut: 1.650; Color: Aged charcoal frost metallic; Pickups: handwound 69 Custom Shop; Scale: 25.5; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

  • Here's a preowned 2019 Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Big Head Strat in candy apple red with a gold anodized pickguard and handwound Fat 60s pickups. I love the look (and sound) of these large-headstock Strats. This one was built as a Journeyman relic but looks like it may have had some additional relicing done. A strap button was added to the back of the body at some point but has been removed. Plays and sounds terrific. With original case, COA, strap, etc. Fender sez:
    "With its large headstock, thick-sounding Fat ‘60s single-coil pickups and jumbo frets, the Limited Edition Big Head Strat is just the thing to add some girth to your music. Designed for supreme playing comfort, the ultra-stable quartersawn AA flame maple neck sports a “ ’63 C”-shaped profile, along with a 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard that’s ideal for chord-playing and single-note work alike, and 21 jumbo frets for easy bending. The trio of Hand-Wound Fat ‘60s pickups includes a RWRP middle pickup to reduce hum when used in positions two and four, while the Fat ‘50s wiring reinforces the tone and the Greasebucket™ tone control preserves your volume when dialing back the highs. A 5-way switch completes the package, adding modern pickup combinations to this iconic instrument. Other features include a vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, gold anodized pickguard, bone nut and wing string tree with nylon spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity."
    Condition: Relic (see description); Body: Alder; Neck: AA flame neck with rosewood board, 63 C carve (.810/.970), 9.5 radius; Nut: 1.650; Color: candy apple red; Pickups: handwound Fat 60s; Scale: 25.5; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

    SG Standard ’61

    $1,750.00
    Here's a near-mint 2022 Gibson SG Standard '61 in vintage cherry, in brand new condition aside from some light pickguard marks, save some bucks. Great guitar for the money. Gibson sez: The SG Standard ‘61 returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played, and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music.

The mahogany body features deeply sculpted body scarfing, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard, and a 22nd-fret neck joint.

    Here's a gently gently owned limited edition Tele Custom relic with a CuNiFe humbucker at the bridge, dark rosewood fretboard and a sweet faded aged chocolate 3-tone burst. A terrific Tele. Fender says: Developed by Seth Lover, who joined Fender in 1971, the “cunife” pickup features a two-coil humbucking design that uses 12 cunife screws connected on the bottom by a steel plate. Cunife is an alloy named for its three constituent metals—copper (Cu), nickel (Ni) and iron (Fe)—and in instrument pickups it produces a distinctive “hi fidelity” sound with rich bass and clear treble, and they never lose their attack or definition when pushed. We used samples of the original magnets to develop these pickups over a two-year period, and we’ve brought the material back exactly as it was 40 years ago. For this very special Limited Edition Cunife Tele Custom Relic, we took elements of the classic double-bound Telecaster Custom and added custom features including the classic cunife wide-range humbucker paired with a hand-wound Texas Special. The two-piece select alder body wears a Relic lacquer finish. The tinted quartersawn maple neck features a ’60-style oval-“C” back-shape and a flat-lam rosewood fingerboard with a 9.5” radius and 21 narrow tall frets. Hand-wound Texas Special (bridge) and wide-range cunife (neck) pickups feature three-way switching and Dual-Stack HS Tele wiring. Additional features include a three-ply mint green pickguard, ’58-’63 Tele bridge with RSD saddles for perfect intonation, vintage-style tuners, bone nut and wing string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity. Condition: Relic; Body: Alder; Neck: Riftsawn maple, 60 Style Oval C profile (.790 - .930), 9.5 radius; Nut: 1.650; Color: faded aged chocolate 3 tone burst; Pickups: handwound Texas Special (bridge), wide range CuNiFe humbucker (neck); Scale: 25.5; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

  • Gibson has been known to tinker with the venerable Les Paul over the years, and the Les Paul HP was one of the more ... well, interesting efforts. Based on a Les Paul Standard with a killer flamed maple top, with Burstbucker pickups and extensive tonal options via four push-pull pots, the guitar is very versatile tonally. The guitar has a slim taper neck profile, fast access neck heel and a compound radius fretboard. There are many additional tonal options available via dip switches in the internal cavitiy. Then things got a little weird ... on the original, no pickup surrounds, chrome knobs, a zero-fret nut and the dreaded automatic G-Force tuners ... a very odd take on a great guitar.
    Thankfully, the original owner had the sense to ditch most of these oddities, installing a Dan Erlewine bone nut, regular knobs and pickup rings, and installing vintage style Kluson tuners instead of the G-Force ones. In short ... this is now a super nice playing great looking Les Paul Standard. All original parts included, along with the heavy duty stainless aluminum road case, but minus the G-Force tuners, which are somewhere in a landfill, where most people think they belong.
    Condition: Preowned, excellent; Body: Mahogany; Color: Bourbon burst; Pickups: Burstbuckers; Scale: 24.75

The two-piece select alder body is finished in a decadent “Diamond Pearl” nitrocellulose lacquer. The lightly tinted quartersawn 5A figured birdseye maple neck has a ’60 “oval C” profile and is topped with a round-lam rosewood fingerboard with narrow tall frets, mother-of-pearl face dots and cubic zirconia side dots.

  • If you know me, you know I'm a big fan of Jerry Garcia, who played Travis Bean guitars for several years in the 70s with the Grateful Dead and the Jerry Garcia Band. So having these lefties here is a special treat for me. This very limited edition TB-500 JG  guitar from Travis Bean Designs is a spot-on lefty recreation of Jerry's beloved Travis Bean stage guitar, serial #12, a first generation 500. The carve, color and electronics are matched to Jerry Garcia's original guitar, with three Travis Bean cast resin single coil pickups, direct re-creations of Jerry's original pickups made to spec from the notes from the original guitar. Each pickup is controlled by a mini toggle switch. The guitar also features the first iteration of Jerry's brilliant effects loop design, which sends the signal out of the guitar before the volume pot, so your effects always see full signal from the pickups, then back into the guitar, to the volume pot and out again on a second cable. The guitar has 500K pots, Sprague capacitors, Thermax coax cable from NASA, Switchcraft input jack, Schaller M6 tuners and a brass nut. The tone is pure 76-78 Garcia; these guitars have the pickups mounted directly to the billet of T6061-T6  aluminum that the neck is milled from, and the sustain is tremendous, like playing a tuning fork. The guitar is surprisingly lightweight despite the metal neck, it weighs in at 8 pounds even. Travis Bean Designs is a venture formed by Kevin Burkett and Rita Bean; its origins date back to when Travis and Rita decided to reissue updated versions of his landmark guitars in 1997. Unfortunately, Travis passed before it came to fruition, but his friend and original business partner Marc McElwee provided notes and specs from the original designs from the 70s and signed off on the newer prototype designs based on Travis' own prototypes. Marc's notes included specs from the original guitars built for Jerry Garcia in the mid 70s. Other notable Travis Bean players include Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, Slash, Ace Frehley, Joe Perry and John Mayer. Condition: New; Body: African mahogany; Neck: Aluminum, rosewood fretboard, 12 radius; Nut: brass; Color: white; Pickups: Travis Bean single coils; Scale: 24.75; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)
