1974 Fender Strat, Stag Pole, 100% Original with OHSC, Near Mint!

Left Handed 1974 Fender Strat, Sunburst Finish, Maple Neck, Staggered Pole Pieces, OHSC with trem bar, Near Mint one-owner guitar. Very nice vintage lefty Strat, last of the stag pole Strats, this guitar was not played much at all as evidenced by the lack of fret wear; in fact, the neck looks new!

Has some nicks and scratches on the body, but you have to look close to see them. There is no wear to the wood, even on any of the three sides-please see pics. This is a real survivor/time warp Strat that is an unmolested, original guitar. Has that great Strat weight at only 7.5 lbs; plays and sounds as good as any 70s Strat I’ve had!

1972 Fender Jaguar, Original Lake Placid Blue, 100% Original with OHSC

Left Handed 1972 Fender Jaguar, Original Lake Placid Blue Finish, 100% Original with OHSC, EXC Condition. This is a very rare custom color Fender Jaguar, as featured in the book of rare vintage lefties: Uncommon Sound.

The original LPB finish shows the typical green fade that we all love about the vintage LPB finish; this is a classic look that can not be duplicated today! You can see where the color of the uncovered parts of the body has faded moderately over time into a greenish-blue,
as opposed to the true LPB color as seen in the covered parts(under the pickguard and under the neck plate-see pics).

In addition, what makes this LPB Jaguar so special is that the neck profile is the size typically found on mid-59 Gibsons(.89/1st, .98/12th), considered the most perfect of neck profiles and one of the features that makes the 59 Gibsons the most desired of the Golden Era Gibsons.
Many of the pre-CBS Strats which I have owned, for example, have had a thinner neck profile, typically .81/1st, .98/12th, so this Jaguar has a really comfortable neck! Frets show some wear around the first 5 frets, but still have plenty of life left.

This is one of the cleanest vintage guitars I’ve ever gotten in; it is a total freak and almost too clean to handle! Beautiful cherry red finish, strong unfaded cherry top with gorgeous grain, with the back amazingly figured and flamed!

1972 Fender Princeton Reverb, EXC Condition!

1972 Fender Princeton Reverb, serial # A26123, last year for the Fender tail logo, EXC condition. This amp has all the original transformers(see pics). When I first bought it, I took it to Gary Dahle Pro Audio to have completely checked out. Gary pulled the chassis, cleaned all the pots and jacks, reseated the tubes, resoldered a few connections and the amp sounded like new again.

When I originally got the amp, it had a non-original cheap speaker. So I bought a premium speaker, the Weber Ferro Max Vintage Series Ceramic 10 inch, 8 Ohms/50 watts. This speaker has a huge magnet and is loud with a big bottom, clear, aggressive highs, and later/smooth breakup.

The amp has less than 1 hour of play time with the new speaker. Never gigged, only used in the home. I have 5 other amps, so this amp has seen very little use. Needs nothing – this is a turnkey vintage amp.
