Fully stocked with vintage Fenders

At the moment we have an impressive stock of cool vintage Fender guitars & basses to suit any taste.  Broncos, Mustangs, Bullets, P-Basses, Teles, and more.  Here is a photo of just a taste of what we have.  Take one of these in the soundroom and it will be hard not to walk home with a “new” Fender.

Harmony Central

Two really nice Harmony Sovereigns from the 60s. If you’re looking for a great sounding acoustic and staying within a budget, look no further. These two are Adirondack spruce, Honduran mahogany back and sides, Brazilian rosewood boards and bridges. Jimmy Page recorded Stairway To Heaven on a dread style Sovereign and Pete Townshend always had a go – to sovereign handy. Not bad for what was a department store guitar back in the day. Yeah, but is she buying a stairway to Sears™?
Either of these would sound great under a microphone and look lovely by a Christmas tree™.

Pretty little thang…

Okay – I haven’t freaked out over a guitar in a while (lie).
This is a 1960 Gibson ES-125T 3/4 that is just beautiful.
Check out that lil’ Magnatone M199 Student behind it.
Quite the vibe.

This is what we call a “Sleeper Amp”

It doesn’t look like much, but this Allen Hot Fudge w/ Nuts has to be heard to be believed!  This one was made by Allen himself and not just a thrown together kit amp so you know it’s built to last.  If you’re wondering what it sounds like the description from their website couldn’t be more spot on: Hot Fudge w/Nuts 1×12 is 6G3 (brown Deluxe™) inspired (long tailed pair phase inverter) but with 6G11 (brown Vibrolux™) vibrato.

Gibson Electric Bass

Better known as the EB 1 as it was renamed when reissued in the 60’s, this the real deal – a 1957 to be exact.  Gibson needed to separate its electric bass from the large shadow cast by the success of Fender’s Precision bass, and this is what they came up with.

*ATTN Zeppelin nerds (Ricky) – Spin the picture wheel on III, yes the vinyl, and the EB will appear.  This was allegedly the only Gibson bass that JPJ would play, due to it’s ruggedness and tendency to not flubb out.

Moving on, a solid body bass, with false f-holes, banjo tuners, made to look like an upright.  The 50’s EB even had a telescoping end pin.  This EB is in such great shape, you rarely get to see the originals.  It even has the original case…
