Everything; hardware, electronics, down to its solid mahogany construction has been carefully chosen for maximum performance.

1957 Fender Stratocaster!
The artisans at the Fender Custom Shop created a Tele lover’s dream: the Limited Edition ‘50s Vibra Tele® Heavy Relic®, the crème de la crème of Tele guitars. We started with a ‘50/’51 Blackguard single-coil bridge pickup, then added two of the most popular, time-tested Tele mods: a Bigsby® B5 vibrato tailpiece and a Seymour Duncan® Seth Lover humbucking neck pickup. Placed directly at the seventh harmonic for perfect, balanced tone, this pickup adds a unique note to the traditional Tele twang. Dual Stack HS Tele wiring ensures the pickups play nicely with each other, from an electrical standpoint; dual-stack 250k and 500k potentiometers guarantee each pickup operates at optimum resistance.
The two-piece select ash body wears a thin Heavy Relic lacquer finish, giving it the look of an instrument that’s spent its life being played onstage. The one-piece tinted quartersawn maple neck has a“’57 Soft V” profile and a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 #6105 frets for a contemporary playing feel. Other features include 3-way switching, period-correct Black phenolic pickguard, 21 narrow-tall frets, vintage-style tuning machines with Fender logo, bone nut and disc string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
Fender is guided by one clear, simple directive: make life better for musicians. While the original Telecaster certainly did that (and then some), we weren't content to rest on our laurels. Our team of mad scientists examined every component in near-microscopic detail. If we were able to improve it with a new design or modern materials we did; if it didn't need improvement, we left it alone. When the wood chips and solder fumes settled, what was left was the American Professional Telecaster—everything you need to play your best.
**Guitar is in excellent condition for its age. Has light swirls throughout body due to typical playwear.
If you are looking for that classic Stratocaster tone with a beautiful, aged body and tint then you are in luck. The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 1959 Stratocaster Journeyman Relic is here to deliver what you have been striving for. Hidden in your Dads closet for a few decades this '59 Stratocaster has been waiting to be taken out of its case and fired up again. Using Handwound Fat 50's pickups the warm snap is all there. This Limited Edition Fender Custom Shop '59 Stratocaster is a great addition to any arsenal of guitars.
The two-piece alder body wears a Heavy Relic lacquer finish, giving it the look and feel of a well-loved guitar that’s seen countless stages, while the tinted riftsawn maple neck is fast-playing and comfortable, thanks to the 63 C neck profile, 9.5" radius fingerboard and 21 6105 frets. The trio of Hand-Wound Fat '50s single-coil pickups includes a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup to reduce hum. Other features include five-way switch, Vintage Modified #2 wiring, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.

2019 Winter NAMM Limited Edition
From the Fender Custom Shop comes this Vintge Custom '55 Stratocaster in wide fade two-tone sunburst. The Vintage Custom series styles new instruments off of their respective earliest periods of production - some based off jurassic, prototypical designs. On this particular guitar, we see a wide fade two tone sunburst finish, which is rarely seen on a '50s Stratocaster. For the neck, this Strat sports a 1954 U-shape neck - a profile often seen on early Telecasters.
Plugged in, this Custom Shop Strat is bright and articulate, much like a legit '50s design would be. Key features include a two piece ash body, gloss back maple neck, and a 7.25-9.5" compound radius fingerboard - which, according to Fender, has been discovered on original Stratocasters, though very seldom. Electronically, the handwired bridge pickup is wide open, and middle and neck pickups each have their own tone control. Rounding out this guitar are Closet Classic hardware and non-aged plastic material.
Modern Player guitars deliver thoroughly modern features and distinctively unconventional takes on revered Fender instruments. The Modern Player Telecaster Plus is that rarest of birds—a three-pickup Tele® model, further distinguished by a pine body, Stratocaster® middle pickup, powerful humbucking bridge pickup, special switching and more. One of the most individual and tonally versatile Telecaster models Fender has ever offered.
**Guitar is used but in good condition except has two chips on bottom half of body (see pictures).
This is a USED instrument being sold in 'Very good' condition. Original hardshell case included.
Gibson Custom SG Standard VOS Reissue Features:
Burstbucker pickups with three-way toggle switch
When you really want to cook on a solo or deliver some thunderous power chords, you reach for a guitar that’s got a pair of humbuckers, right? Forget all those thin “out-of-phase” guitar sounds that the session players overused in the 1980s and (sad to say) right through much of the ’90s. That’s not for you. Your sound is all about the warmth, punch and midrange complexity you can only get from humbuckers. With that in mind, the Vintage Original Spec SG Standard Reissue comes with a smoking hot pair of Burstbuckers – a Burstbucker 1 in the neck and a Burstbucker 2 in the bridge – for the ultimate in tone along with Gibson’s standard layout of two volume and two tone controls and a three-position toggle switch.
Authentic ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge and Maestro Vibrola tailpiece
One of Gibson’s many accomplishments during the 1950s was the development of the tune-o-matic bridge, which allowed for precise intonation of each and every string. The patent for the design, which Gibson designated as the ABR-1, was granted to Gibson president Ted McCarty, a fact that’s never been in dispute, though it wasn’t until more recently that McCarty’s many innovations have truly been recognized. Since some 1960s SGs shipped with Gibson’s unique Maestro Vibrola, which effectively replaced the earlier Bigsbys.
Solid mahogany neck with long neck tenon and rosewood fingerboard
The SG Standard, which was Gibson’s premier solidbody electric after the company discontinued the Les paul line, was produced with the slim-taper mahogany neck, making it among the fastest ever designed. The Vintage Original Spec SG Standard Reissue reproduces that ultra fast profile with the historically accurate long neck tenon. If you like the combination of a fast mahogany neck with the warmth of the traditional rosewood fingerboard plus the nearly limitless access to the upper frets that’s an SG trademark, you’ll love the SG Standard Vintage Original Spec Reissue. It’s fully bound and includes accurate acrylic trapezoid position markers and those distinctive vintage “tulip” tuners.
Gibson Custom SG Standard VOS Reissue Features:
The latest limited run from Gibson Custom Shop is a gorgeously rendered replica of Mike Reeder's own 1959 Les Paul, based on the specifications of his original, serial number 9 0799. Like the original, each of the available 300 pieces is a one of a kind, handcrafted piece of artwork with the added benefits of exceptional beauty, playability and tone. Like Mike's own, each features a stunning, two-piece highly figured flame maple top, an early 1 950's fat neck for authentic vintage Les Paul feel and two custom-wound Custom Bucker pickups dialed in to recreate powerful, balanced tone.
Other key, vintage-inspired features include a lightweight aluminum tailpiece for enhanced tone and sustain. Each also features a hand rubbed, nitro-cellulose finish that's been aged to capture the look of the original, a double-carved top for authentic 50's depth, a single piece, solid mahogany body, and hide glue construction throughout.

From joetillguitars.com website (2013):
"Spotlight: No. 179 Short Scale Solidbody
After 17 years of building guitars, I've finally learned to keep my grubby little mitts off of my new ones. Now, after I wire them up and do the initial setup, I box them up and put them away to keep them nice and new for the buyer. Otherwise, I'd be all over this little beast. Why, it'd be in shreds by now. Practically a Relic!
Rarely for a TG-250 model, no.179 sports the fast and ferocious 24 3/4 inch scale. All but a few have had the more stately 25 1/2 inch scales. The difference is pretty noticeable to a lead player. Not only are the frets closer together, but the strings require less tension to get up to pitch... bending is a breeze, and you can go crazy with vibrato. By the fourth set, these can be very welcome features on a guitar - especially if you're a Johnny Winter fan.
Even more rare is this guitar's solid body. I haven't made a solidbody since the last century! And this is the first solid TG-250 ever. There is hardly any weight penalty because I used basswood in the core which is not only light in weight, but also has great tone.
Again, Seymour Duncan provides the horsepower. After many dozens of guitars, I still find the SH-2 "Jazz" (neck) and the SH-4 "JB" (bridge) to be simply magical. Both are tapped for singlecoil or full humbucker operation. From twangy jangle to fatty beef at the flick of a switch. Clean when you need clean, and just the right amout of dirt when you crank them up. And, like my guitars, Seymour Duncan pickups are handmade in California!"
