Epiphone E251 Broadway,'59

Serial # A 2340

 
 

Epiphone E452TD Sorrento, '61

Royal Olive, Serial # 24386, Purchased from the original owner, One of the mini humbuckers has the "PAF" sticker and the other has the "Patent Number" sticker, In 1961 this guitar sold new for $290 and the hardshell Lifton case was an extra $52.

 

Epiphone E452TD Sorrento, '67

Serial # 86943

The interior lable mistakenly reads: E230TD Casino!

 
 

George Fullerton Limited Edition

This guitar was a gift from my good friend John Kisler and I'll treasure it for the rest of my life!

 

Gibson Les Paul Deluxe, '75

Red Sparkle, Serial # 398970

 

Fender Telecaster, '55

Blonde, Serial number 7553, I love the Blonde on this one. It is VERY transparent. The Blonde finishes from this era do seem to stand out. It looks like the folks at Fender really took their time during this period to make sure that the grain of the Ash really jump out from under the finish. 

 

Fender No Caster, '51

Butterscotch Blonde, Serial number 0390, The original owner had his initials engraved in the Ash tray bridge cover. Just a wonderful example of a No Caster. This one has been in the collection for longer than we can remember.

 

Fender Telecaster Thinline, '68

Natural, Serial number 230818, Ash body, Just a nice representation of this classic guitar.

 

Fender Stratocaster, '65

Lake Placid Blue, Serial number 101113, Here is a good example of this classic custom color. A previous owner did install one of the Fender clear body guards on this one. It has since been removed. The body does have a few wear spots from when the rubber on the guard reacted with the lacquer. Sadly, in most cases the guards did more harm than was ever intended.

 

Fender Stratocaster, '65

Olympic White, Serial number L86093, A customer came into my shop with this one close to twenty years ago and wanted to sell it. I asked him who did the refinish work, as it was way too clean. He had a confused look on his face and said that he did not understand what I was asking. As it turned out, he was the one and only owner. This Strat was hanging in the store where he took lessons for 6 years before he bought it in 1971. He just never played it after that. This one also has all of the Fender hang tags, and the manual. This guitar looked brand new when it came in, and it still looks new today. They do not get any cleaner than this one!

 

Fender Stratocaster, '63

Sunburst, Serial number L36630, This one has been in the collection for a very long time and the "red" is starting to fade on the front.

 

Fender Stratocaster, '63

Black, Serial number L27250, Although you wouldn't think it, Black is a pretty rare and hard to find Custom Color. My good friend Chris Trider found this one for me years ago.

 

Fender Stratocaster, '63

Burgundy Mist, Serial number L11394, Purchased locally from the wife of the original owner. He was kindly gentleman who brought this guitar into my first store back in '82 for a restring & set up. I flipped when I saw the guitar and I told him if he ever wanted to part with it to please think of me. He said he'd never part with it as it was the best playing guitar he ever had his hands on. Over the years he became a good customer & friend and he would drop in often just to say hi. Then I got the call from his wife telling me that he had passed. It was a sad time for me indeed. The one thing that he made clear to his wife was that he wanted to make sure that I got the guitar after he was gone. I'll treasure this one till my dying day, just like he did.

 

Fender Stratocaster, '63

Blonde, Ash body, Serial number L19865, Fits right in with the Blonde '58 Strat!
