2013 Kelton Swade Strat – Exc “+” Condition

Just 7lbs-2oz of Kelton Strat-ness! These are very hard to find because most of what Kelton makes are Teles. No fret wear and just simulated wear/aging on this. I call it EXC+ to avoid someone getting out their electron microscope and determining one of the dings is non-Kelton-made!  This one SOUNDS like an OLD guitar…how?…not sure…but has that slightly aged but metallic thing going on that defines vintage Strats.

2012 Gustavsson Fullerblaster – Ash

Early Gustavsson Fullerblaster. Ash body with Maple Neck & Maple Board. Wolfetone neck pickup and Duncan Bridge. Just 7lbs-3oz. Soft V neck profile and med/jumbo frets. I love this one because it just feels like an old guitar. The pickups are perfectly balanced whereas many F style guitars sound like different guitars on different settings. Bridge has just the right bite without being too much. The neck is airy with punch.

Ian Anderson SPEEDMASTER – Exc Condition

Sick of run of the mill PRS’s that are dipped in plastic and sound of mass production?…you’re ready to step up to a hand carved Ian Anderson Speedster.  This is an impossibly rare model (only a few on the planet) that features Honduran Mahogany & Flamed Maple.  25.5″ Scale keeps the snap a’comin   1-11/16″  Ian Anderson’s own hand wound PAF type clear pickups that won’t overpower the situation.

Ian Anderson Standard – Exc Condition

Hand carved from Mahogany & Flame Maple. Lollar Low Wind PAF-like pickups.  Brazilian Rosewood Board.  Just 8lb-2oz.  This Tele-Paul style brings clarity with boom at a price you’d pay for a stamped out bolt-on.  Is it a LP?…no…not boomy in the bottom end.  This guitar has a fat full bottom and mid and nice clear highs.  It sits together in the mix and holds its place.  It FEELS like a guitar should with a nice thin nitro finish.  Neck profile just a tad shallower than a ’59 burst…but not thin and NO not a ’60 (that’s always the trick question).  These are impossible to find new (good luck ordering one) or used.  This nonsmoking instrument is available but won’t last.

2013 Harden Belmont – Excellent “+” Cond

Harden Engineering hand crafted Belmont featuring a classic mahogany slab body and neck.  Weighing in at an enviable 6lb-3oz the guitar is balanced standing or sitting.  At first glance one would think ‘jazz’ because of the neck-only pickup….but you and your sniffer are wrong again….the Foil pickup has clarity like nothing you’ve heard (unless you have other foils).  It sounds like a bridge pickup in some settings and a neck in others…not sure HOW they do it but they DO IT.  This guitar is blowout priced and will be additive to your collection….why grab another T or S when you can have DIFFERENT and AFFORDABLE while getting hand craftsmanship?…do I need to wave the flag and whistle the Star Spangled Banner?

1954 Gibson Les Paul Jr – Exc “-“

1954 Gibson Les Paul Jr – Exc “-“

Clean ’54 LP Jr with Original Gator Case.  Exc “-” Condition with some checking and a few small nicks.  Extremely clean and a tone that has some snap and mids.  The bottom is extremely tight and not floppy.  I searched for a very clean example for my inventory and THIS is that (you English majors just cringed….that was my attempt to mess w you…weaken your resolve).

Almost no fret wear (just a slight touch of surface flattening in the lower frets).   Original finish.  Original Pickup & Electronics.  NO structural repairs (i.e. no headstock repairs).  The only change is the tuners are modern (originals included).  The only other notable item is that the case is missing the edge with the clasps.
