    Hey vintage guitar fans,

    Just posting up some vintage gear from our small site in Western Australia.

    [​IMG]

    http://www.vintageelectricguitars.com.au/

    Simple business with the goal of providing premium quality vintage instruments to the market.

    Have been collecting since 1992, and my girlfriend has recently come up with a novel idea. She said I have too many guitars, basses and amps and they should be advertised online.

    [​IMG]

    One of our favourite experiences so far in 2018 has been to reunite John from California (pictured here in 1977) with his beloved 1972 Gibson SG Deluxe Stereo, of which only 50 were made as a 20th year celebration of Gibson's electic guitar history.

    Most 1972 Gibson's have embossed pickups.

    http://www.vintageelectricguitars.com.au/product/1972-gibson-sg-deluxe-stereo/

    Will post up my collection as time permits.

    Enjoy!

    OK,

    First piece to place on the Gear Page site is our 1954 Fender Stratocaster

    [​IMG]
    Purchased in the 1980's for $4,000 plus a trade on a new contemporary Stratocaster, it has been held by the owner in it's original case since then. The only changed bits are some etching in the holes on the back plastic plate, the back plate screws and the string tree upgraded from the circular style.

    Now available in Western Australia, this piece has attracted a lot of interest as it has some unique qualities from the 1954 stock of remaining pieces.

    The guitar has a one piece body, beautiful playing maple neck and an early serial number of 0251.

    For more information about this piece, click the following link:

    Next up we have a 1958 Fender Tremolux amplifier.

    http://www.vintageelectricguitars.com.au/product/1958-fender-tremolux/

    Born in 1958, this guitar amplifier has experienced a lot of love during it's life, and a lot of abuse as well.

    [​IMG]

    Amazing playing amplifier. This is your lounge room amplifier guaranteed to make your guitar playing sound better.

    It has replaced bits here and there, but the main components are all there. A 1954 Jensen speaker is sitting inside.

    110V version with new cord. Some of the tubes are replaced.

    [​IMG]

    Bought it from a guy in New Jersey who is an avid collector of all these things Fender and Tweed. He had it in his shop for years, and his sales staff loved it as this was their demo amp. Then one day, he asked them to actually move it instead of play it and it came up for sale.

    I snapped it up immediately, and got it shipped to Western Australia.

    The perfect new cousin to the 1954 Stratocaster.

    Up next is a 2012 Fender Telecaster 60th Anniversary Model in mint cosmetic condition.

    [​IMG]

    The ash wood grain is clearly visible through the body’s paint job and the finish feels smooth and glassy.

    The Delta Tone circuit allows you to completely cut out tone attenuation allowing more sass in your tonal strut.

    Mustard-hued ash body finished in Fender’s nitrocellulose-based lacquer.

    One-piece maple neck with a 25.5” scale length, medium jumbo fretwire, rolled fret edges and a modern C profile. 9.5” fretboard radius.

    Original hard case included.

    Pleased to offer this 1952 Fender Telecaster Reissue in mint condition.

    http://www.vintageelectricguitars.com.au/product/2012-fender-telecaster-52/

    [​IMG]

    Butterscotch blonde 1952 Reissue Telecaster in exceptionally clean condition.

    Period-correct specs produce the complex sounds that the Telecaster is known for. The bridge pickup is typically spikey and raw, but seems to have more guts and depth. The neck pickup delivers one of the softest, sweetest and rounded sounds that you’re ever likely to hear coming out of a solid-body guitar.

    Single cutaway solid premium Ash body finished in Gloss Nitrocellulose.

    One-piece U-shaped neck with 7.25"-radius fingerboard. 4 Bolt maple 25.5" neck finished in gloss nitrocellulose with dot inlays.
    Coming in the traditional flat, rectangular, Fender ‘tweed’ period case.

    Here we have for sale a rare custom colour Hot Rod Blue Japanese Fender Telecaster.

    http://www.vintageelectricguitars.com.au/product/1985-fender-telecaster/

    [​IMG]

    Frets only have minimal wear, with well over 95% life left. Action is slick.

    Pups punch out that oh so desired Tele spank & twang.

    Cosmetically the body has no dings, dents, scratches or buckle rash.

    None of which degrade the playing integrity of this classic vintage masterpiece.

    Comes with new hard case.

    Pleased to offer a rare Firebrand Gibson Les Paul from 1979.

    http://www.vintageelectricguitars.com.au/product/1979-gibson-les-paul/

    [​IMG]

    This model was one of a limited issue that Gibson released with a " relic road worn" touch.

    Mahogany one piece body. Mahogany neck with 22 frets. Neck is straight, the frets have approximately 80 % life left.

    Nut width 1 11/16". There are no cracks, breaks or repairs of the neck or headstock. No overspray or respray of the body. No extra routs.

    Action is low, easy, comfortable and fast with no dead spots.

    The weight of these Les Pauls is lighter than all other Les Paul Models manufactured at the time, 8 Lbs.

    Next up we have a 1978 Fender Stratocaster.

    http://www.vintageelectricguitars.com.au/product/1978-fender-stratocaster/

    [​IMG]

    1978 Fender Stratocaster in a fantastic clean walnut translucent finish.

    On the heavier end of the weight spectrum, this guitar resonates strongly with great sustain.

    First class Stratocaster with only modification being that of a changed volume pot.

    Comes with OHSC.

    OK,

    First up, I have finished our PDF's for this summer for those interested in printing out the catalogue in HD and perusing on paper.

    Vintage Electric Guitar Catalogue (HD) - 65Mb



    Vintage Electric Bass Catalogue (HD) - 19Mb



    For today, we are pleased to offer up a 1976 Fender Jazz bass in Natural Ash finish. Made famous by Marcus Miller with his famous modified version, this bass is everything you could want in a maple neck 70's J bass.

    http://www.vintageelectricguitars.com.au/product/1976-fender-jazz/

    [​IMG]

    An amazing quality instrument with a full working truss rod after I removed the old truss rod cover screw and replaced the rocket with a modern equivalent.

    It's a thumping bass with a really strong tone emanating from a total weight of 10.5 pounds.

    A brilliantly vibrant maple neck and fretboard with white block inlays in perfect condition.

    Original Case and excellent condition.

    1973 Gibson ES335TD in walnut with trapeze tailpiece, rosewood board and square block inlays.

    http://www.vintageelectricguitars.com.au/product/1973-gibson-es335td/

    In exceptional condition, the binding has majestically aged yellow contrasting gracefully against the walnut finish making this vintage guitar stand out.

    The Mahogany pencil thin neck is straight, original frets have been dressed and have approximately 60% plus life left. Original humbuckers are well balanced and punch out classic vintage tones accompanied by semi acoustic overtones.

    The action is slick, fast and extremely comfortable. Original Orange lined hard shell case

    1973 Fender Precision Bass with clean maple neck.

    http://www.vintageelectricguitars.com.au/product/1973-fender-precision-bg/

    [​IMG]

    I am very proud of this piece. One of the cleanest vintage bass in the collection. Untouched, this is a collector's grade bass that has a body in amazing shape.

    The only relic part of the bass are small scratches on the end of the headstock.

    100% original and a very smooth playing bass.

    Original hard case included.
