Fender Vince Ray VooDoo Acoustic Guitar

Fender Vince Ray VooDoo Acoustic Guitar

Look what just brightened up my day, a Fender Vince Ray VooDoo Acoustic Guitar from China. Seller writes she’s in excellent condition (a few pick scratches, no biggie) and sounds great. Her Fishman preamp and pickup work like a dream. Of course, the real star of the show is her amazing Vince Ray graphics. (You can check out more about Vince here.) Put it this way. You walk into a gig with her, you set expectations…

Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic Guitar

Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic Guitar

Call me a sucker but I’m a fool for blue guitars with matching headstocks such as this Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic Guitar. She’s part of the California series with a solid Spruce top, a Maple soft “C” shaped neck and Rosewood fingerboard. She’s basically new but has been “manufacturer refurbished” so she had a problem and has been fully restored to her original specs. In other words, she’s good to go. Seller doesn’t say where she…

Fender Squier Hello Kitty Strat

Fender Squier Hello Kitty Strat

Few things put a smile on a face faster than a limited edition Fender Squier Hello Kitty Strat. You’ve got to love her perky, pink charm. She’s from Indonesia and features an agathis body, C-shaped maple neck with a 21 fret maple fingerboard and a 60s style large headstock.  Seller doesn’t say when she was made so if that matters to you, ask seller. She rocks a single humbucking bridge pickup with a single volume control, chrome hardware…

Fender Jazz Bass Guitar

Fender Jazz Bass Guitar

Put a diaper on me, I just may wet myself. Take a gander at this ONE OWNER all original Fender Jazz Bass Guitar from 1965 plus her original hardshell case. As seller says, it’s one of “THOSE stories.” An older gentleman brought the guitar into seller’s shop and he had been her sole owner and player. She’s all original with most of the pre-CBS features—transition logo, pearl dots, no binding and early tuners. Even her pot dates…

Fender Excelsior Guitar Combo Amplifier

Fender Excelsior Guitar Combo Amplifier

Here’s a fun smaller amp from the Fender Pawn Shop Series, a Fender Excelsior Guitar Combo Amplifier. She delivers 13 watts through 12A7 preamp tubes to 6V6 output tubes, then all that lovely juice gets piped to a 1 x 15″ speaker. She also has tremolo capability. Seller says she works and sounds great. She’s got some dings and stuff from player use and seller rates her in “approx 80% cosmetic condition.” I don’t think I will…

Squier Katana (by Fender) Electric Guitar

Squier Katana (by Fender) Electric Guitar

Hold my calls, this honey—a Squier Katana (by Fender) Electric Guitar—has all my attention right now. Made in Japan in 1985, this gem was crafted in Fender’s Matsumku factory. According to seller, and I have no reason to doubt him, this rare model axe made the list in the book 1001 Guitars You Must Play Before You Die. Seller says the Katana model was only made from 1985 to 1986, and that makes them rare and collectible….

Fender Bandmaster Guitar Amplifier

Fender Bandmaster Guitar Amplifier

Oh my, what have we here but a Fender Bandmaster Amplifier from 1964. Seller says she’s been his “baby” for over 30 years and wants to find her a good home because he and his wife are leaving the country to do volunteer work. She rocks American made tubes and, according to seller, they still sound great, as do her pre-amp tubes. She brings 40 watts but, according to seller, they’re a REAL 40 watts. Here’s one…

Just in Case: Electric Guitar Edition

Just in Case: Electric Guitar Edition

Guitars are meant to be played. And if you treat them well, they generally return the favor. But gigs do end and that means you gotta pack up your axe and move along to the next one. Trouble is, bad things can happen during transit. Either by accident, negligence or just pure stupidity or evil, guitars get damaged every day. If you haven’t seen the classic video “United Breaks Guitars,” check it here. Few things…

Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar

Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar

Classics become so because they are genuinely loved and admired. A lot of folks feel that way about Strats, and they sure don’t get much more classic than this made in Mexico Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The seller doesn’t say how old this tobacco burst lady is but she looks of fairly recent vintage and seems in fine condition save for one major cosmetic flaw (looks like paint damage caused by a drop.) Seller doesn’t mention a case or…

Three Great Electric Guitars For Any Player

Three Great Electric Guitars For Any Player

Just as with people, every guitar is different. Each guitar sounds different, plays different, has different abilities, strengths and, yes, limitations. That’s why when players get bit by the guitar bug, they start acquiring instruments—so they can get the sound they’re hungering after. It’s even got a name: G.A.S. or Guitar Acquisition Syndrome. So here are three types of electric guitars you might want to consider adding to your collection to round it out some. 1….
