    Hey vintage guitar fans,

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

    [​IMG]

    https://vintageelectric.com.au/

    Vintage Electric is a small business 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.

    1954 Fender Stratocaster

    https://vintageelectric.com.au/product/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.

    1958 Fender Tremolux

    https://vintageelectric.com.au/1958-fender-tremolux/

    [​IMG]

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

    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.

    1974 Gibson SG Standard

    https://vintageelectric.com.au/1974-gibson-sg-standard/

    [​IMG]

    Factory fitted ebony fretboard, smooth action and very easy on the hands.

    A pair of well balanced patent numbered humbuckers produce that classic early 70's Gibson tone.

    No extra routs, overspay or respray. Three bridge saddles repaired.

    A new owner will not be disappointed with this '74 vintage classic.

    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.

    1971 Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty

    https://vintageelectric.com.au/1971-gibson-les-paul-custom/

    [​IMG]

    Cosmetically this 46 year old vintage classic does have the odd ding, dent and buckle rash accompanied by the usual time honoured patina of the gold hardware.

    Mahogany neck and body, ebony fretboard, mother of pearl inlays, ABR-1 bridge, patent sticker pickups.

    Action is typically low easy and fast, player comfort at it's best.

    The binding is in good condition and has gracefully aged.

    This guitar comes as stock with no breaks or repairs. Original patent sticker pickups with unmolested solder joins. Pots all original with wiring uninterrupted.

    1971 Fender Precision Bass

    https://vintageelectric.com.au/1971-fender-precision-bass/

    [​IMG]

    Given how well this bass plays, and that it's an all original slice of Fender musical history, I have difficulty relaying to people online (or phone) how amazing this instrument actually is.

    A unique vintage piece featuring a lightweight body. Has some genuine wear and tear from nearly 50 years of life.

    An excellent example of an early 70's P bass with that tight bottom end featured on so many classic hits of the era.

    100% original, this instrument comes with its original hard case.

    1970 Gibson SG Special

    https://vintageelectric.com.au/1970-gibson-sg-special/

    [​IMG]

    Three piece voluted mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard. two original P-90's on a mahogany body.

    If you like big warm bottoms, extra presence in your mid's and very clear highs, then these P 90's punch out exactly that.

    No wonder the likes of Clapton, Santana, Townsend, Garcia have them in their arsenal.
