Jim Dyson Tone Deluxe Junior, Black, BRAND NEW
The ultimate blues axe? The perfect all-rounder? Classic retro styling and a pair of down-and-dirty hand-wound Blues90 soapbar pickups makes for one of the best lead guitar weapons that money can buy. From start to finish, every Jim Dyson guitar is built entirely by hand, in his workshop at Torquay, on Victoria’s Surfcoast – Jim even winds every pickup himself! It’s well-known that Mia Dyson uses her father’s guitars exclusively, but other Australian and international Jim Dyson guitar owners range from Paul Dempsey, (Something For Kate), to Billy Bragg. Others turn to Jim exclus...

#8377 Danelectro “Dano `63” Baritone, BRAND NEW
Danelectro “Dano `63” Baritone, BRAND NEW
Seems that 2008 is the year the baritone guitar makes a big comeback. With heavier strings, and usually tuned a full octave lower than a standard 6-string, the baritone is the bass for guitarists, or the guitar for bass players. The Beatles used a Fender VI baritone extensively on the White Album, (‘Back In The USSR’, ‘Rocky Racoon’, ‘Helter Skelter’ and others). The eagerly-awaited Dano ‘63 Baritone is a fully professional instrument, at a price that won’t send you bankrupt. The re-worked early sixties styling, with the funky offset horn cutaways, is matched with top-line impro...

#8359 1995 Stratocaster - Fender 50th Anniversary model
1995 Stratocaster - Fender 50th Anniversary model
WINTER SPECIAL! This nice black Strat hasn’t been played a whole lot – the metal parts are all as shiny as new – even the screws and pole-pieces look like they only went in last week! Not bad at all for a Fender 50th Anniversary model. This particular model features a vintage tinted neck & board, which was no doubt an upgrade when the guitar was bought, but nobody charged us any extra for it, so it’s a bit of bonus for whoever’s quick enough to grab this one. There’s some very faint marks in a couple of spots around the edges, some light play wear on the scratchplate – other...

#8372 Fernandes Native Pro - Sustainer model
Fernandes Native Pro - Sustainer model
It’s almost impossible to find one of these truly awesome guitars – not just in Australia, but anywhere in the world – they simply don’t come onto the used market, at all. Once you own your own Native, you’ll understand why. Sonic Youth's Lee Renaldo, Steve Vai, Natalie Maines, (Dixie Chicks), Robert Fripp, (King Crimson), Adrian Belew, (King Crimson), Steve Lukather, Danny Lohner, (Nine Inch Nails) – these are just some of the high-profile players who wouldn’t dream of fronting up to a gig without their Fernandes Native in their guitar rack. The incredible Sustainer system g...

#8376 Guild D4 dreadnought acoustic, 1998 - MINT
Guild D4 dreadnought acoustic, 1998 - MINT
One of the last guitars built by the craftsmen of the Guild plant at Westerly, Rhode Island, before the Fender takeover saw production shifted to the Tacoma factory in Washington state, the D4 has been out of production now for 10 years, and prices are rising rapidly on good condition instruments – this model is in brand new, showroom condition! Superb balance between highs and lows, plus pin-sharp mid-range definition, made the D4 one of the best stage and studio acoustics in the world, winning Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s 1998 Player’s Choice Award. After playing it for just a f...

#8358 Kay Acoustic, ½-size auditorium, 1955
Kay Acoustic, ½-size auditorium, 1955
Wow! This little American-made acoustic is just fantastic – it absolutely nails that dry, Robert Johnson-style blues sound, but there’s also enough warmth to make it a good all-rounder. Stamped inside as a model K12¾, it’s more realistically a half-size instrument, (perhaps they couldn’t find the ½ size stamp?), and like the modern-day Taylor ‘Baby’ models, this great little guitar also belts out a massive sound – certainly helped by fifty-plus years of ageing to the tone-woods. The guitar was used for many years in a bunkhouse at a kids’ summer camp near Woodstock, in upstat...

#8351 Guild Starfire I, 1966
Guild Starfire I, 1966
Hand crafted at the old Hoboken, New Jersey factory, the thinline T-100 series Starfires and Slim Jim models are some of the most eagerly sought out vintage guitars in the world – and this one is a real gem! Recently retired from the Conservatory of Music at the University of Indiana in Terra Haute, (see the pic of the Conservatory label on the back of the headstock), this Starfire I, in gleaming 3-Tone Sunburst, is in absolutely amazing condition, and completely original. The bound, thinline, Maple body is fully hollow, and just 1¾” deep, (45mm). With 20-frets, (14 to the b...

#8375 Danelectro Dano Pro, 2007
Danelectro Dano Pro, 2007
The upgraded Dano re-issues keep on getting better and better, and despite the low price tags, they’re fully professional instruments, as reflected by their increasing appearances in heaps of cool music videos – and this re-issue of the famous original 1959 Dano Pro is one of the best yet! Professional playability, professional intonation, professional electronics… just fantastic. Attention to period detail is awesome, from the same “glossless” automotive paints of the day, to the “aged” binding tape around the edge. Concessions to the new century are improved tuners, (now dieca...

#8362 Fender “Splatter Strat”, MINT! (Rainbow Splatter)
Fender “Splatter Strat”, MINT! (Rainbow Splatter)
Impossible to find in Australia, the limited edition Splatter Strats were made in 2003 only, and began climbing in price the minute production ended – especially outside the US. Designed in Scottsdale, Arizona, built at Fender’s Ensenada plant, no two Splatter Strats are the same – each one features a completely unique paint job. Many people have bought Splatter Strats purely to hang on their living-room wall – it’s art that you can play! But of all the Splatter Strats we’ve ever seen, this is without a doubt the nicest, with brilliant rainbow tones over Sonic Blue. It also a...

#8367 Fender Strat Plus, 1988, Desert Rose
Fender Strat Plus, 1988, Desert Rose
The Fender Custom Shop began operations in 1987, hand-crafting instruments on an individual basis, to specifications far beyond normal production models, and generally only for “name” players such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Robert Cray, etc, (and occasionally for anyone else that could afford it). Before Custom Shop guitars became available to the general public in 1993, the Strat Plus was the best quality Stratocaster that money could buy. (The Strat Plus actually evolved out of a guitar that the Custom Shop was building for Jeff Beck. His guitar underwent several further desi...

#8369 Paul Reed Smith McCarty, 2001, Whale Blue
Paul Reed Smith McCarty, 2001, Whale Blue
The last McCarty we listed was here less than 24 hours before being snapped up, so there probably won’t be time for second thoughts on this one either – if you want it, grab it now! McCarty models are about the most eagerly sought PRS models of all, and other than a replacement nut, this one is all original, including its original PRS hard-shell case. Owned by the guitarist from a Melbourne indie band, the nut had been changed to accommodate heavy gauge strings, but has now been switched back to normal, and with the recommended (D’Addario) 9’s fitted, she sings like a bird!

#8371 Fender Precision Bass, 1985, custom-ordered, MIJ
Fender Precision Bass, 1985, custom-ordered, MIJ
Following the CBS sale of Fender Musical Instruments to the consortium of Fender staff known as FMC, no Fender instruments whatsoever were built in the United States between 1984 and 1987, as the purchase did not include the existing factory. The new owners urgently came to an agreement whereby the Fuji-gen company of Japan would make all instruments for the US and world markets until the new plant at Corona in California was built and deemed ready to commence production. Japanese-built instruments from the 3 “lost years” of US Fender production are incredibly well-built, and re...

#8322 Fender Stratocaster, 1999 -
Fender Stratocaster, 1999 -
The girlfriend said either the guitar went or she went! Guess who won? Owned from new, (1999), by the guitarist from a Bakersfield, California band, this is a great pro player Strat, with jumbo frets and a prime set of American Standard pickups, that will take you anywhere you want to go. Other than just some very light play-wear, there’s a couple of little dings here and there, and a repaired paint chip at the top strap button. The sexilicious scratchplate has virtually not a mark on it, but even without the scratchplate, it’s practically impossible to find a Stratocaster in th...
