Vintage Guitar Case Studies
L-Series Jazz Bass in Vibrant 3 Tone Sunburst.
This 1965 Fender Jazz Bass was one our first premium vintage instruments acquired.
The nitrocellulose finish over the immaculate 3 tone sunburst finish has held up remarkably well. This reveals a vibrant colour spectrum as evidenced in the photography.
Apart from slight worming on the rear of the instrument, the finish is near spotless. The tortoiseshell guard is clean and crack free.
As pictured below, the maple neck comes with an Indian Rosewood board. The small vintage frets are in perfect condition and have barely been played. They retain a slight gold tarnish, further evidence that the bass has been kept in perfect storage conditions for the majority of the last half century.
The electronics on the bass are untouched, and the sound and playability of the instrument can only be described as unique.
Given the small frets on the board, there is a distinct difference in playing style with this particular bass. The pickups are very responsive and although they are not as loud as their modern day equivalents, do produce a more subtle vintage tone that satisfies even the fussiest bass aficionados.
Finally, the clover style tuners are all original and in great shape and have never left the instrument. These L-Series tuners spin in the opposite direction to what you are used to.
The bass comes with it’s original hard Fender no-logo case.
Based on the stunning condition of this instrument, it would form a cornerstone item in any vintage Fender bass collection.

The Fretless Wonder in Polaris White with Triple PAF Pickups.
This Gibson Les Paul Custom was the 13th guitar made by Gibson in 1963. As such it shares a lot of 1962 components including the sideways vibrola which is in good working condition.
This particular piece also features three high output ‘PAF’ (Patent Applied For) pickups which are noticeable for their distinctive tone.
The single piece mahogany neck with ebony fretboard is a joy to play with 22 small vintage frets still in good condition.
The hand contoured body in original Polaris White finish is in remarkably good condition compared to the gold coated nickel components which have oxidised heavily. Original Grover “Patent Pending” tuners are in excellent working order, untouched and have never left the guitar.
When plugged into the 1963 Fender Princeton amplifier, the guitar produces a remarkably full tone, one that is a pleasure to experience. Whether playing Jazz, Rock, Blues or more contemporary music, this guitar does surprise, and it’s build quality and subsequent impressive tone were well above my expectations when I first acquired the guitar.
With small frets, you will need to adjust your playing technique somewhat as it plays lighter and faster than most other vintage guitars I have played. But the time invested in learning this guitar produces some remarkably impressive results, both with chords, harmonic sets and single note playing.
The central pickup position is wired such that the guitar produces a very thin, almost tinny sound made famous by Sister Rosetta Tharpe. The bridge and neck positions have that typical full Gibson tone with ample feedback at higher gains from most strings.
With higher gain Marshall amplifiers, string muting will be necessary as this guitar wants to enter an infinite feedback loop on most fretted notes. Controlling the feedback on these pickups is an art within itself.
The higher energy ‘PAF’ pickups are untouched, which together with it’s clean original Polaris White finish make this is a great investment that the new owner can admire and enjoy playing for many years to come.
This vintage classic arrives at your door with it’s original “Faultless” gold-lined case.

Two pieces from the golden era of Fender musical history.
This 1963 Fender Stratocaster arrives at your door with its original brown case including the original manual with matching serial number, L03963.
Owning this guitar is sheer pleasure from the minute you first open the case to the instant you hear it through your favourite amplifier.
One-Piece Alder Body, Clean Maple Neck and Headstock w/ Original Kluson Tuners, Spaghetti Logo, Dark Brazilian Rosewood Fretboard, Clay Dots, Green Guard, L-Plate and Original Tremolo Arm.
This L-series Stratocaster is 100% original with no repairs or issues. Original frets have plenty of life left at 85-90% remaining.
The 1964 Fender Bassman Blonde amplifier is the last year of white tolex amplifiers prior to the advent of the Blackface series introduced in the same year. This super clean piggyback version has a speaker cabinet with it’s original 12″ speakers.
Two bass inputs and two guitar inputs (normal) with untouched electronics. The transformers are untouched with their original codes and the 110V USA plug will require a 240-115V stepdown transformer.
Together, they form part of Fender musical instrument history that will take immediate pride of place in your lounge room or studio.
