This guitar is all original except the rear pickup was rewound with vintage style wire by our friends at Taylor Guitars. 1963 Fender Stratocaster. Hardshell case included.
Like 1962, very little changed about the Stratocaster for the production year of 1963. Sales were still extremely strong, and the Stratocaster continued to etch out its place as the one of the world's most popular and iconic instruments. Some very minor changes seen in 1963 include a subtle shift in the shape of the pickup selector switch and a change in the location of the pickguard screw above the front two pickups. Also, by 1963 the "veneer" style of Rosewood fingerboard had become standard.

Get classic Fender twang with plenty of swagger in tow with the 1973 Telecaster in a blonde finish. Built with a slab ash body and smooth C-shape maple neck, the '70s Teles featured a pair of warm single-coil pickups and string guides for greater precision introduced in the previous year. It's pretty hard to go wrong with a vintage Telecaster in see-through blonde.
Produced for seven years from 1973 to 1980, the Gibson L6-S wasn't necessarily popular during its lifetime, but picked up steam when it was endorsed by players like Carlos Santana and Pat Martino. Its all maple solid body took direction from the hollowbodied Gibson L Series, intended on giving guitarists an instrument that was both versatile and affordable. The six-way pickup selector allowed for selection of both phase and output settings, adding to the versatility of the L6-S.
This is a VINTAGE 1995 strat style ash guitar body with a licensed by Fender Mighty Mite neck.
This guitar has some finish scratches and the pick guard is peeling on the corners, but is in very good working condition.
Teisco was a Japanese budget brand that produced guitars starting in the late '40s. By the early '60s, Teisco guitars became increasingly unique with a number of original shapes and designs being produced. Those imported to the United States were branded as Teisco Del Rey starting in 1965. Collector interest in Teisco and other budget import brands has increased in the past several years. Teiscos are notoriously difficult to date and identify as no comprehensive records were kept during production. The ET-200 was a two pick-up version of an earlier design.
Years of Production: 1960s
