1984 PRS Pre-Factory Metal Prototype #1 – Documented & Celeb Owned!

1984 PRS Pre-Factory Metal Prototype #1 – Documented & Celeb Owned!

See this on REVERB.Com:    https://reverb.grsm.io/33104934-paul-reed-smith-prs-metal-prototype-1-1984-pre-factory-ted-nugent-owned

 

Made by Paul Reed Smith….not the company….THE guy…before there was a PRS factory.  This is THE PROTOTYPE of the Metal.  It is from 1984 and is the #1 prototype documented from factory (included).  It is in Excellent Condition with the Original Hard Case and Tool.  Pickups are hand wound by Paul.

Extensive documentation and pictures of Ted Nugent with this guitar are included with the sale.

Paul took this piece as a sample to New Orleans and it was scooped up by Ted Nugent.  Ted “borrowed” this piece and played it in such iconic performances as his jam with Eddie Van Halen (pictures included) and Texas Jam.

This is a collector quality piece that also sounds & plays amazing.  Vintage PRS Guitars are priced extremely well and are poised for long-term appreciation relative to their peers.  If you watch the major vintage player sites, clean examples of F and G have been moving at ever increasing prices.  Don’t sleep on this.  It’s not another sunburst F…..it’s THE Metal that we all lusted after when we were younger and broke.

Fender Nocaster 1951 – Collector Condition with Case & BROCHURE ! Just 6 lb-4oz

Fender Nocaster 1951 – Collector Condition with Case & BROCHURE ! Just 6 lb-4oz

1951 Fender Nocaster Telecaster in Excellent Collector Quality Condition.   Just 6lb-4oz.  Serial 1322.  Just a WOW piece to play.  The high notes are so fat and nothing like anything I’ve ever heard.  People who play this smile.  It is a once in a lifetime piece.  I simply feel it is best in the hands of someone who will play this and enjoy it more than I can.

2 Owner Piece that is virtually excuse free.  Light wear and light checking but no replaced parts.  Let’s get the questions out of the way:

  • ORIGINAL FINISH
  • ORIGINAL FRETS
  • ORIGINAL CASE
  • Original Wiring Scheme (with Mud Setting).
  • ORIGINAL PICKUPS (no rewinds)
  • ORIGINAL BROCHURE (not a copy)
  • Does not come with Fender Sign shown in picture
  • YES IT COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL STRAP
  • YES it has the ORIGINAL ASHTRAY COVER
  • ORIGINAL TUNERS (never swapped out)
  • ORIGINAL NUT
  • ORIGINAL POTS
  • ORIGINAL JACK
  • Original Guard
  • Strings are modern (LOL)

Only 2 things were ever done to this piece.  When I received the guitar the wire from one pickup had deteriorated at the connection point to the 3-way.  I had Phil Jacoby re-solder the wire to the connection.  It literally had just come off & nothing more.   Second, the neck pickup base had deteriorated over time at the point where it was screwed into the body.  I had Phil Jacoby make an unobtrusive support (detailed pictures available).  Literally some double sided take and plastic.  That’s all for ‘stories”.

Please no silly lopsided trade offers.

Please no ‘best price?” emails….if you wish to make an actionable & firm offer please do so and I will consider it.

Danocaster TELE – Klein Pickups

Dano TELE  featuring an Alder Body and Rosewood Board.  .845″ – .97″ Neck Profile.  No Fretwear.  Klein PIckups.  Weighs Just 7lb-5oz.

Super guitar.  Resonant and has that bite we just LOVE in a tele…but cleans up ever-so-nicely.  Wear appears to be a combination of factory & user.  Always hard to parse out which is which.

See complete Specs & Condition in the 3rd pic.

Couple things to note (1) no tag because likely pre-dates tags.  (2) Case is a hard after-market with a big gash in it. (3) Three of the bridge screw heads snapped off….came with one snapped & 2 others just snapped off when I tried to remove the bridge to inspect.  I sent the guitar to Hogy (KOMET AMPS) who is one of the most respected restoration men alive.  He removed the stubs, repaired the holes and redrilled/reinstalled the bridge.  A-grade, no expense spared repair.

1957 Gibson Les Paul Junior TV YELLOW – All Orig Except Tuners & Case

1957 Gibson Les Paul Junior TV YELLOW – All Orig Except Tuners & Case

1957 Gibson Les Paul Junior in TV Yellow finish. YES the finish is original and it blacklights.  Original FRETS.  Original Pickup.  Original Wiring.  Original Guard.  CHANGED TUNERS.   Upgraded CALTON hard form fit case.

Simple.  Not much else to understand.  Neck profile is a WOW .925″ – .975″.   Weight is just 7lb-5oz!   YES this is the ONE you have been waiting for.

Tonally this has that FATNESS and Crunch til you back off the volume (pot a touch scratchy and you won’t want to mess with it but if you do that’s on you).  This is from MY personal collection.  It sits amongst the very few top sounding guitars I’ve accumulated.  I just find that I don’t play many guitars anymore and it’s time for this one to reside with someone who will use it.

Color is strong.  Checking, dings and some scratches but a clean piece that is just under that grade where you won’t want to touch it.

SORRY NO SOUND SAMPLES

SORRY NO APPROVAL PERIODS

2005 GVCG Esquire / Tele : 6lb-13oz

Early GVCG Esquire from the days when Jonathan was creating these with Fender logos!  IT has the trademark “rooster” in the neck pocket clearly identifying this piece as a GVCG.

This was professionally converted to a Telecaster…but relaaaaaxxxxx….no holes were drilled……the original guard & caps are included!  So YOU WIN!  I prefer having 2 pickups but if you only want one then it’s all there for you.

SEE COMPLETE SPECS & CONDITION in the 3rd PICTURE.

LIGHT weight at just 6lb-13oz.  Have to LOVE the resonance of this piece.  The early GVCGs are the play.  I had the ‘reissue 1’ versions and they are fine guitars but not to the same level of WOW as the early versions.

SEE COMPLETE SPECS & CONDITION in the 3rd PICTURE.

This does NOT come with the ‘patch’ but it is a 2005 from what I can gather.

2018 Wysocki CUSTOM Tele LP – LOOK AT THE WOODS!

YES ANOTHER!

We sold this new less than a year ago.   Save $2500 vs. New on a guitar that lived in a smoke free, gig-free environment.

Think about it…would you buy an acoustic guitar made from crap wood?  Why do you think the top end acoustics command so much money?…the woods combined with the craftsmanship.  Well, let’s start with the WOODS….there is ONE person on the planet who is THE wood guy supplying the world’s top luthiers with coveted planks….Larry Wysocki.  For over 50-years he is THE guy the top builds go to.  He searches the world for air dried woods, recovered woods, exotic woods.  He collects them and has a coveted stash that is sadly running low.

A few times a year, Larry builds instruments.  Usually for celebs, but on occasion he is nice enough to sell me a brand new one.  THIS is such a piece.  Oh and it just vibrates like nothing we have had.  The pickups are custom voiced TOM DOYLE HUMBUCKERS that are open and alllow the woods to impart their organic warmth and natural sustain.

Speaking of woods…how about 1-piece 5A AIR DRIED Flame Maple Top from the early 1900s on top of a 1-piece AIR DRIED 60 Year Old Swamp Ash Body!.  Oh, and a 5A 1-Piece Air Dried Maple Neck from the early 1900s.  OH and the board…Brazilian Rosewood of course but not some stump wood…this is 80-year old Brazilian from the stash.  You just can’t find woods like this anymore.

You can see the complete Spec & Condition Sheet in the 3rd Picture.

A couple other quick points before you bang out a question to me:

  • 7lb-03oz
  • Custom TOM DOYLE Pickups!
  • 12″ Radius
  • C Profile .85″ – .967″ Neck
  • 1-11/16″ Nut
  • Med/Lg Frets
  • Original Hardshell Case (no I won’t take a picture of it for you)
  • Sunburst NITRO
