more info on the actual guitar George owned
From "Let It Be" and The Apple Rooftop Performance! There are instruments, and there are legendary instruments which have become mythical in proportion.The lot we present here represents the latter rather than the former, and this particular instrument is surely one of the most important offered in any venue in the world at any time. In 1969 the Beatles were at a crossroads. The band had enjoyed success far exceeding that of any band in history. The records, the concerts and the international notoriety had propelled the four lads into the spotlight and beyond, and, like all good things, the union was about to end. There was nothing more to achieve that hadn't already been achieved, and time had taken its toll on both the band's creativity and interpersonal relationships. Since the band had quit performing concerts, they decided on a last hurrah---the group would be filmed rehearsing, recording and jamming together for what would become the album titled "Let It Be" with a film released by the same name. The culmination would be the band doing a final live performance together in a location which turned out to be the rooftop of the legendary Apple headquarters in London. In the midst of recording and from "Let It Be" and The Apple Rooftop Performance!filming, George Harrison acquired a new instrument---a beautiful Fender Rosewood Telecaster, custom made for him. Fender's marketing department wanted to add new solid body rosewood Telecasters and Stratocasters to its line, and felt that a good way to jump start the instruments' popularity would be to present the prototype of the Telecaster to Harrison and the prototype of the Stratocaster to Jimi Hendrix. According to the book Beatles Gear, (Andy Babiuk, Backbeat Books, 2002) in 1968, Phillip Kubicki, a young, talented guitar maker, was told by his boss, Roger Rossmeisl, that Fender would be making the guitars. Recalls Kubicki: "For me, this was about as exciting as things could get. The Beatles and Hendrix were at their peak and were a big part of the times." According to the book, "Rossmeisl decided that a safe course would be to produce two prototypes each of the Rosewood Telecaster and the Rosewood Stratocaster and then select the best to give to the star musicians. The bodies for the guitars were made with a thin layer of maple sandwiched between a solid rosewood top and back. "I spent hours sanding the bodies to perfection," recalls a misty eyed Kubicki. "Eventually, a clear polyurethane finish was applied and allowed to dry, and we selected the two best bodies and necks for Harrison and Hendrix." Kubicki says that Harrison's telecaster became a priority because Fender knew it was required for an album that The Beatles were working on. The guitar was carefully and painstakingly finished, set up, checked and carefully rubbed with a fine cloth until it became highlighted. The second body and neck were stored in Fender's R & D department. Kubikci followed the guitar's history and, according to the book reported that "Harrison's guitar was flown to England-in its own seat-accompanied by a courier, and hand-delivered to the Apple offices in December 1968. "I remember when I saw the guitar for the first time in the Let It Be film," smiles Kubicki. "I was so thrilled I almost jumped out of my seat." Also, according to Beatles Gear, "A myth has circulated for years that Harrison and John Lennon each received a Rosewood Telecaster, but Lennon certainly never had one. Harrison's Telecaster bore the serial number 235594. The guitar was used almost exclusively by Harrison in the Get Back recording sessions and was chosen by him to play the rooftop final performance on January 30, 1969. This performance was the film's final climax---the band's celebrated final live public performance atop Apple's roof. The group played 'Get Back', 'Don't Let Me Down', 'I've Got A Feeling', 'The One After 909' and 'Dig A Pony'. The next day, another performance was staged, this time in the Apple basement studio. With the cameras rolling, they performed and recorded 'The Long And Winding Road', and 'Let It Be', with Harrison using his Rosewood Telecaster. Shortly thereafter, the band would go their separate ways forever. By the end of 1969, each of the Beatles had designs on solo projects and began their own respective journeys to that end. On December 1, 1969, George Harrison, along with Ringo Starr, attended Delaney & Bonnie's performance at London's Royal Albert Hall. Eric Clapton was on the bill that night and following the show asked Harrison if he would join the group for a few shows throughout Britain and Denmark. The next day, Harrison joined the tour and presented Delaney with a wonderful gift-his Fender Rosewood Telecaster. Harrison told Delaney "This is for what you did for me last night." Delaney recalls that during the tour the various band mates would sometimes switch guitars, although he primarily used his newly acquired Rosewood Telecaster. Since that special day in 1969, Delaney has cherished the 'early Christmas gift' bestowed upon him by Harrison. Guitar collectors and historians have long known the whereabouts of the instrument, but few have had the privilege of seeing it in person. The closest they have been able to come to admiring the Rosewood Telecaster has been via the two-page spread in which it is illustrated in Beatles Gear. Delaney Bramlett has counted the guitar among his very dearest possessions and hopes that its new home will be with a collector who will treat it with the same respect and dignity he has for the nearly three decades it has been in his possession. The guitar is in fine condition and is accompanied by the hard shell case used by Bramlett to transport it as he toured with his Delaney Bramlett and Friends road show, of which Harrison and Eric Clapton were a part. An unprecedented opportunity to acquire a truly world-class and historically significant instrument. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity written by Delaney Bramlett himself.

Original Vintage Tremolo block and interestingly is the same composition and is virtually identical to the Fender Original 1960's old pre cbs strats we have in stock..."cant really tell the difference" Tokai did an excellent job recreating the actual characteristics of the real vitage strat.. Original Tokai Gray bottomed Staggered & beveled pole pickups & sounds like a true Vintage Stratocaster should sound this one has it!!!"BELL CHIME TONE" ( those pickups were specially made for Tokai by Semour Duncan back in the day... Duncan went all out to recreate the sound he was all so familiar with,,, He knew what he was doing... I have been loving these Tokais 20 years now and just found out that Duncan was behind those great sounding gray bottom pickups... ps the " U" pickups = also great sounding. No wonder SRV endorsed Tokai's they get that SRV tone ... I played this one threw our 63' Supro 1624t amp ...OMG ...what great tone! this is one of the best Tokai's ever, and we have had many vintage Tokai models over the years now from 57 R/I to 64 R/I and this one is a GREAT Tokai Strat!

The tapered headstock design allows for straight string pull, ensuring that strings stay in tune in any gig situation. To further cater to the demands of discriminating players, this DC Pro is available with Amazing PAF vintage style humbuckers . Perhaps most importantly, the DC Pro's compound radius fingerboard provides a no-compromise solution to those who demand comport and playability all the way up the neck. Players will find a perfect "fit" for their left hand. "The ongoing evolution of the Gibson Les Paul guitar has reached a new benchmark with the introduction of the Les Paul DC Pro," said Tom Spaulding, Product Sales Coordinator for Gibson's Custom, Art, Historic Division. "With roots that reach back to the world famous Les Paul and Les Paul Junior, the DC Pro is loaded with modern features aimed at today's players. Gibson's original list price on this CS Model was $3995.00 . This cross-pollination of old and new features breathes new life into the fabled Les Paul family tree."

Here we have a Very Rare "NAMM SHOW PRESENTATION" This is a 1981 Gibson Les Paul Standard Heritage 80 Hand Built Example. This particular guitar was presented at the NAMM show by Gibson and was bought by the guitarist for the Kentucky Headhunters (unfortunately, no documentation of that can be provided). Nonetheless, These early 80's are known as the "PRE HISTORIC" 1959 Reissue guitars built by the best of the best Luthiers Gibson had to offer and This one is Amazing. Also rare because its one of the few in " FLAME MAPLE" with the meaty 58/9 AAA Mahogany Neck with a Brazilian Rosewood fretboard and with the Vintage correct Trapazoid MOP Inlays same as 50's Les Pauls used SEE THE PICS..most of these Heritage series guitars are Quilt tops I have had a few of those and they are nice too but this is a Very Nice Flame Top Example and is truly sure to please the true Player-Collector-Investor. This Guitar was presented to a famous celebrity musician who toured with this guitar and played it alot because it plays and SOUNDS AMAZING...this H-80 series has some early PAF recreations built by the now famous Tim Shaw who is known to be among the very best ever PAF recreations ever built bar non again we have had several all with Tim Buckers PAF's. This guitar gets THE TONE in Spades...RICH Harmonics jump off when attacked right its controllable and yet dangerous and when called for raw...It can do Bright real well too with the Bridge Pickup and The Neck Pickup has all the Deep Growl lows...you can ask for. This is a real true Relic naturally Aged looks like a Tom Murphy aged style with some Real Honest wear hear and there.
No Fret Buzz or sound from the electronics its Absolutly Recording worthy. One of the nicest Pauls I have ever played it is set up to ROCK and NO funny business ..I may install NOS Vintage Sprague 50's Bumbel bee 22 x 400 Vintage Gibson Tone Caps for the heck of it if so add $175.00 not done yet..
this guitar sounds and plays unbelievable! Many of rock 'n' roll's classic albums were recorded with a 1959 Les Paul Standard (Allman Brothers, Led Zeppelin, etc). Hovland caps have been added to the tone pots (a standard upgrade for these guitars). In 1981, Gibson was still making their guitars in Kalamazoo, MI and this is a fine representation of their work. As you can see in the pictures, it has a BEAUTIFUL flamed maple top. It has some wear on the back, but that's to be expected from a touring guitarist's instrument. Fortunately, it also has the sound and playability that's to be expected from a touring guitarist's instrument! Comes with its Original hardshell case included. Please email me with any questions.
Here we have another RARE GREAT FIND this is the Highly Collectable Tokai Paisley Telecaster "Breezysound" Tokai's L-plate era Version and is one of the best ever re-creations of the Famous 1968 Paisley Telecaster. This fine example was manufactured in Japan in 1985 by Tokai Gakki in Japan.
The body color and Paisley pattern is said to be exact and DEAD ON to the Original Fender Paisley Telecaster produced in Fullerton California by Leo Fender in 1968. This one is A REAL Collectors Dream! Yes this is the VERY RARE Tokai Paisley Tele... Tokai's version is so much more accurate in both Color and built to specs than the later 80's-90's and to date...released made in Japan Paisley teles versions from Fender Japan...This true Vintage Tele Plays so nicely it's action is so fast its really plays like a dream...runs just fly of the fretboard and the neck is a real nice Figured & Flamey AA Maple mid-sized and the frets are in very good - excellent-original ..The pickups and hardware are all original and they have a nice patina natural aged look....just like the real 69' The sound produced from this Tele is simply AWESOME+++::: The ash tray seen in the pictures is included as well as what apears to be the original hard shell case...at this price.

This example is a "hard-tail" model with a fixed bridge,The volume/tone knobs used on the early Deluxes were very similar to those used on Fender's "Blackface" range of amplifiers,
the Deluxe was only available with a maple neck. Electronically, the Tele Deluxe also resembles the Gibson Les Paul - they both have dual humbucking pickups, an upper-bout mounted 3-way pickup selector switch, and a volume/tone controller for each pickup.

This example was made in 1972-73 and is 36 years old and the wood and its vintage correct Olympic White finish has aged very nicely making this great sounding player look and feel like a real Vintage 1969 Stratocaster. The finish and overall look is a REAL well played 69 Strat. The Sound of the vintage electronics is quite strong and really nails the bell chime tone found in a real vintage strat. Its sound is impressive and sound correct for a Hendrix era strat. All parts are the originals and plastic has aged to well it is only 4 years newer than the Real vintage 69 strat so it looks about correct.... Very impressive. This guitar was made by Ibanez of Japan = The weird name on the headstock was done to alot of guitars in that time period to avoid getting caught by Fender selling exact replica type copies of Fenders copyright trademark design which this guitar is and this guitar is Very Rare with the ES winner logo on the headstock this is one of the niceset LAW SUIT Strats made in these years from Ibanez Japan and absolutly do give the old Springysound Tokai Strats a strong run for the money...

The Aluminum bodied Talbo by Tokai Gakki Crafted in Japan..
One of the most original unique and beautiful Japanese guitars available from Tokai Gakki. This is the famous TALBO Blazing Fire model guitars, an amazing example surely one of the best performing original design concept all "Aluminum bodied" guitars from one of the greatest Japanese Guitar builders Tokai Gakki of Japan. Its a pretty unique design all right sort of like a star ship they say in Japan if you look at it like I have with a John Lennon 325 in the same room you can see the similarity in the 2 and its also like a super strat with a fat PAF humbucker in the bridge...
The sound it can produce is nothing short of amazing with respect to tonal quality and sustain these are considered very high end guitars in Japan and throughout the world very highly respected feared by some dare I say. The body is all 100% premium Aircraft Aluminum so that it has bright resonant clarity to its tone. Talbo`s known for its great natural sustain and is very Tokai - Strat like in tone many of you know what that is like yet it is also very unique unto it self, I wound say that it has a sort of Vintage Tokai stratocaster type sound with a Ric twist the Humbucker is gutsy and can get ZZ's pearly gates tones with harmonics and this monster tone machine is considered a strat / Junior players dream to play and hear.
This is in great vintage condition = almost like New 9-9,5/10 wow clean!! I can not find any bad points to this guitar,
BTW The aluminum price is rising up the price as you know, This Talbo price is also rocketing sky-high.
The Great and powerful super Tokai strato Aluminum body Talbo a real players & collectors dream.

Due to the EMG pickup upgrade the following modifications have been made to this guitar, Only two (2) knobs are now needed to function this guitar they are the knobs closest to the pickups/bridge/strings and they control: Knob #1:=Master Volume and, Knob #2:=Tone/EQ
Pickup configuration is:
EMG-85 = BRIDGE POSITION (Gold EMG logo)
EMG-81 = NECK POSITION (Silver EMG logo)
This SUPER EMG combination AMAZING for recording and is tried & true and is truly an amazing upgrade to this High Quality Les Paul guitar. This guitar is so close to the true vintage sound of the early Ole School Les Paul, that it's scary. But... it does have it's own voice. The neck is Sweet and versitle,great for jazzy style, its perfect! yet crank it and it will scream like Gary Moore's 57 Paul. The bridge can hurt you with it's crisp highs, and present mids, it too is really versital. (The sustain of this guitar is nothing short of a beast its INCREDIBLE!) Think early Santana!
Through a Fender Deluxe Tube amp, Oh my...it's very warm, with a slight adjustment it becomes cutting, or bright, very ballsy blues & rock tones KILL really whatever you want and through a Digitech RP-3 we tested, it's all that, and a hole lot more!...This guitar has the correct 18 degree ofset to the neck headstock like a vintage Les Paul,this has the original Brass nut, frets are original in very good - excellent condition and have been recently dressed and are Gibson correct size the guitar plays very well all the way up the fretboard with good intonation, and stays in tune...Nicely aged Original Tuners & with gold hardware, The fretboard is particularly nice!!!.. with Premium dark Rosewood and is likely Brazilian Rosewood with top of the line abalony inlays to set this all off...All these apointments are a hugh upgrade price ticked at G!b$0n, This neck is a Nice & MEATY C shape profile and is thicker than most average Japanese Les Pauls.The body top is a Beautiful Premium Figured - Flame Maple with a masterfully applied Violin Finish and has aged to resemble a real 50's Les Paul with its natural ageing over the past 32 years and is a real vintage instrament in its own right. Body back is a nice 2-piece Mahogany. Bindings are really nice and are really beautiful tortishell = sweet! This guitar is JVG RATED in overall Very - good to excellent used vintage players condition a solid 8 /10...cosmetics top and front are prety clean and shows very well with minor dings or scuffs, the back of neck is prety clean, the body has many chips & dings that we have "touched up" using Gibson's correct color touch up pen "lacquer" to really make them blend and overall looks alot better now...ha its the back = don't worry its vintage and won't break the bank either...All and all this is one SUPER well built and Beautiful looking - sounding - playing Les Paul... This is for the intermediate to professional player you will be able to get amazing sounds from this player...
Better pics soon to come.

In the 70's young Peter Frampton was a very strong endorser of the Electra guitars along with notable Lesley West and other greats... these guitars are the real deal and are not toys...
Original Fender 68 Paisley Reissue Telecaster some say these early 8o's Japanese Vintage Guitars are the best they made since 1968 period.. I have owned several Paisley Tele's over the years some 90's some Tokai 80's and this era the JV era is by far my favorite.. This one exibits pay wear associated with lots of wonderful play...The body has dings & checks & chips and tons of real players vintage vibe, see the neck how it has a well worn in comfortable playing neck and it surly has aged -ambered over the past 26+ years to a beautiful natural patina not found on most of the fake looking Relic work I see so much of passed off on the net these days...This is the real deal not a manufactured Relic but a real over time and earned by playing....this is one VINTAGE REAL PLAYERS PAISLEY TELE with tons of STAGE apeal, The body's paisley has also sustained the scars from bars & cigars and the like ...this baby really looks like the real deal...it to has now ambered with the past 25 years and is a vintage Tele players dream....Condition JVG Rated at 8.5 out of 10 = its All Original, frets very good still pleanty of life, Tuners work great,info & pics to come
here is a link to alot of pictures of this guitar
No way...I assure you this is not trick photography this is the real deal...Here we have what I believe to be the best Tokai Love Rock in the US at this time its also the best I have ever picked up and played Wow...and I have had dozens of Tokai Love Rocks over the years from early 1980's high end examples threw to today's latest Custom Shop HQ Tokai offerings. This example just NAILS!!! the Vintage 1959 Les Paul. Okay, all you High-End Tokai enthusiasts… here's the one you've been holding out for!!! This is a new guitar and was built in 2008 Tokai Love Rock Custom Shop LS-I VF 8974 Les Paul Guitar. This guitar has been seriously upgraded sonicly with a set of Motor City Black Belt vintage PAF replica Pickups, This baby is in 100% pristine condition!
For those of you who know about the unbeatable quality of high-end Tokai instruments, you will need no explanation but for those of you who are tired of going through 10-15 Gibson Les Paul guitars, trying to find “THE ONE," here's where your journey can end the best of the best. I've played for over 38 years and have owned many guitars, for me the bulk of which have been Gibson USA and Custom Shop LPs and of course my Vintage 1965 Gibson es335. I'm not going to downgrade Gibson I love the good one's but you usually have to pay $4500-7500 to get one of them, they have made some marvelous guitars through their storied history, but I've had problems in the last few years with finding one that really “sings." I really like the looks and vibe of the R9 VOS guitars and the older R-9's & R-8's , but I was not interested in dropping $5,000 plus to get one this time round.
Then I saw this one in a Custom Shop in Nagoya, Japan, and that was all it took. The look, the feel, the fit, the 59' vibe, the sound, the all nitrocellulose lacquer finish…so I spent $2,200 on this beauty and made one MAJOR upgrade to hand-wound, Motor City Black Belt Pickups ($320.00 upgrade). They were installed and wired by my guitar tech, who is the best in business, bar none. (The original Tokai MKII pickups were marginal at best not bad but sounded nothing like this! These Black Belts pickups are vintage PAF winds with bridge in the 8-9K range…the neck mid 7's. To learn more about these check http://www.motorcitypickups.com/products/blackbelt.htm
Specs are as follows:

Naturally Aged over the last 28 years to a gorgeous patina WoW! No need for a Tom Murphy 58' Plain Top @ $2,900 or more this is REAL SOLID old wood. Nicely Figured thick Solid Maple Top off set seam RARE with one of the finest Violin burst finishes you will ever see. The body is AAA high grade Mahogany & a Mahogany set neck w/ real mop inlays just like the real old school vintage les pauls see pics, The attention to detail is just amazing on this high end model Greco. The neck is a hand full nice and beefy with the LONG tenon joint that is accurate too its Deep/long and under the PAF pickup the same as early 58-1960 Gibson Les Paul this is also crucial to amazing tone & resonance. The Original vintage replica Greco Tuners look just like Gibson's and are exact replicas made of nickel and say Greco, all vintage truly aged nickel hardware and even the serial # is inked-stamped just like the 50's Gibson… see detailed pics. The PAF style humbuckers are also accurate reproductions w/ nickel covers now aged..

Greco is one of the greatest names in Japanese-made for the Japanese market replica guitars. Made by Fuji Gengakki for sale exclusively in Japan for Japans high end market, Greco's came from the same factory responsible for Ibanez and the first fifteen or so years of Fender Japan. This High End Greco line of Gibson copies are so accurate in detail and of such high quality standards that Gibson contracted its own operation in Japan, and Fuji Gengakki " Greco" is who Gibson selected, Greco Co. made Gibson's own Japanese Orville-brand of replicas made exclusively for the Japanese domestic market. You will not be disappointing with your Japanese Detailed Crafted Accurate Greco High Quality guitar purchase.
Here is a little background history about GRECO GUITARS
Greco is one of the earliest lawsuit guitar makers in Japan. They have been making guitars since the early 1960's. Most of the 1960's guitars were original builds, but in the early 1970's, they got into making Quality Exact High End replicas of original Fenders and Gibsons. At first, they didn't have the hardware to make them really good, exact replicas, but by 1974 or so, they had the hardware to match their excellent craftsmanship, and they put out some killer replicas. Also, Greco made more models of original Fenders, Gibsons, Rickenbackers, Gretschs, Zemaitis, Ibanez, etc. etc. guitars than any other 2 companies combined. They beat Tokai to the lawsuit race by at least 5 years. Eventually, as the company found that the demand for their wonderful Stratocasters and Les Pauls grew, they sold their stratocaster division to Fender Japan in late 1981. By 1982, Greco stratocasters became Fender JV stratocasters, then later MIJ and CIJ stratocasters, made by the same guys who made the Greco "Sparkle Sound," "Spacey Sound," "Sparkle Sound," and "Super Real" stratocasters. But Greco still retained the business of selling great Les Pauls and other knockoffs of unusually high quality and likeness to the originals. Greco still makes great guitars today, continuing their tradition for excellence. Japannes Vintage Guitars. JVGuitars

Well built Vintage Reissue of the 1972 Stratocaster ...This baby was High Quality made in the Ibanez Factory in Japan, solid quality construction built just like Leo's original Fenders were, this one has very high quality vintage DiMarzio's wow...it sounds incredible period correct 1970's tone this is the real deal and is as nice as the Custom Shop guitars we have had over the years WHAT A FIND.... with the name ElDegas like smuckers it has to be good!... This was logoed to throw off the law suits at the time Ibanez had many guitasr built and was continuing to sell them with several other name brands on the headstock but the guitars were made in the Ibanez factory under strict quality control. This is one of the great one's... not all are created equal its hit & miss sometimes but this is one I hand picked and was amazed with a real diamond... Try it you'll love it!

This a JVG SUPER realistic 69' strat In our own JVG Custom Shop this guitar has undergone a complete NOS - Classic vintage transformation to vintage specifications both cosmetically and sonically... The neck is one of the main reasons I bought this guitar in the first place WoW what a feel & vibe but we did not stop there with this project in mind I saw it and new it would be worth all the work with its gorgeously flamed headstock it looks like my real 69 in that respect, we re-fined neck - only & aged -tinted and applied Real & correct 69' Fender Stratocaster logo in the restoration process please see pics ,a correct profile med- slim taper neck @ nut ..., the Kluson style vintage tuners are custom shop level Japanese tuners...and are as good as the best. The frets are vintage correct size and very good with only minimal play wear..90-95%.
The body is all ASH and is a really beautifully grained piece with its SSS routs original in its own right with the perfect sunburst I really love this Strat and I'm sure you will too. The guard is our own creation it our 69' Repro guard Realsitic NOS w/ "Pearl Back" as is all plastic parts are also appropriately aged clones..the Electronics Sonic Upgrade includes the pots are US CTS..250K the tone cap is an original real vintage new old stock cap, vintage wire used, the pickups configuration is 1969 Custom Shop Custom "Ibarra" wound for us...in 1999 for this project. The bridge 'TONE BLOCK" for the tremolo unit is Ols School strat all the way...heavy upgrade in tone its solid vintage inertia alloy type same as old strats and is a huge part of my real 69's strat's tone source....this combination is amazing and helps to recreate authentic vintage realistic tone matched to our real 1969 Fender Vintage Stratocaster its as close as you get with out shelling out $6-16k for a real one... or $4,990 for a CS from fender at this level. This strato is a JVG Super Realistic Custom Recreation 69' tribute and this one will put a huge grin on your face. Its current configuration and cosmetic NOS status is as seen in the pics ... body looks like glass at this point its clean NOS....however if wanted further relicing ( special order allow 2-3 weeks) to taste is available to order give up to 3 weeks, less in most cases for that service.

Its a great sounding player with very nice action on both necks and is very EZ to play in either 12 string or 6 string mode.

Here we have a great Strat by Fernandes ... this one was made in Japan in 1981 and has been by the looks of it professionally "Fenderized" in its past with "that" company's real vintage logo decal on the headstock front but thats it, other than that she's all stock and original under the hood...This is not a real vintage 1964 Fender Strat although it looks and sounds just like one and is virtually impossible to tell the difference from 6' away this guitar is a very high quality Japanese Fernendez- these were built by the Tokai Gakki factory made to the specs of the vintage 64 Strat and pretty much the same exact guitar as the Tokai SpringySound from the same time period.It's so close in all aspects to the real deal its scary ..accurate spot on vintage correct 3 tone Sunburst finish and it is correct old thin finish you can see grain slightly like our real 64 Strat.. I love this because I actually have a 1964 Strat but I'm afraid to take it out anywhere anymore and this Fernendez is a must have replacement for the real deal...its that cool. This ones finish looks like glass and also has that cool vibe too with its natural wear & dings and such all from real play yet not abused at all ( see pics for that detail ) it now looks like a real 64'aged naturally ( because it is a REAL VINTAGE guitar in its own right..its about 30 years and what you see is real natural aging) The original sunburst body on its Alder wood is just exactly like Leo Fender used and is also in exact to specific detail w/ SSS all original routs and also is a very resonant body ( remeber its a 30 years old wood )and I find it has superior tone rich tone characteristics... With its correct all vintage old school nickel hardware is all original and has a gorgeous Brazilian looking exotic slab board rosewood fretboard with F like pearloid type markers..vintage hardware includes original Kluson style Japanese high quality tuners are likely Gotoh, all nickel parts now aged including Tremolo & saddles..just a bit of crusty rust to be authentic Relic cool vibe.. Just the way I like um...how about you?... It even comes with its trem bar. The all so very important tone block is on board and original and is much like Leo's originals in composition inertia steel block and resonates the tone to a true vintage bell like Fender chime...excellent tone is achieved with these original Japanese Fernandes Strat pickups... I have had several of these old Fernandes strats and they are some of the greatest vintage sounding pickups out of Japan..easily rivals the tone from the same era gray bottoms in the Springy Sound strats from Tokai Japan which I found out were actually built by Semour Duncan back in the day for Tokai's highest end guitars.. this guitar looks right & feels right as well as it actually sounds as good or better than most of the Reissues be it Japanese or US...Have Questions? email Joe @ firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for your interest Joe.
Here at JVGuitars we are custom builders as well as restorations... in this case we have re-created with our own line REBORN OLD ..with this example we started out in life as a high quality Japanese mid 80's Paisley Telecaster reissue...we dismantled completely & then completely reworked, aged & reliced the body... and each & every part. We changed out some key parts as well...starting with a high grade new monster flamed & birdseye fat bat Tele neck that was ( Fender Licensed ) was added for a real great feel.. every part has been aged and now is set up to ROCK that TWANG
Sorry this example has been sold...

SOLD OUT: Here we had for your serious consideration is a Ibanez Vintage Japanese Guitar that is a REAL WORK OF ART from the Golden Era of fine Japanese Guitars
As the top of the line, the Ibanez MC300ds Musician is a superb piece of guitar art and engineering from Fuji Gen Gakki. Meeting the taste for exotic woods with natural finishes, the MC300ds was made using a sandwich of either carved walnut or dark-stained ash with a maple center and walnut or ash back, around a laminated maple and mahogany neck. The MC300ds has a carved top. Hardware that wasn’t gold-plated was solid brass for enhancing sustain, including the extra-large scalloped tailpiece. As with all instrument series, electronics were more sophisticated as you moved up the line. The MC300ds sported active Tri-Sound Super 88 humbuckers with a dizzying array of controls. Two three-way mini-toggles offered regular humbucking mode plus a coil tap and phase reversal for each pickup. On the MC500 the only difference is A third mini-toggle activated an EQ circuit with volume and tone plus boost and cut controls for a three-band EQ (low, mid, high frequencies). All were controlled by a master volume.Get This very RARE & very clean MC300ds before she's gone!.
SOLD OUT: Here we have a very cool & Rare Aluminum engraved top - body & headstock wow what a great work of art and this is no cheep guitar its a top quality highly respected Japanese crafted example from the late 1980s and has been seriously adorned & upgraded as you can clearly see in the pics...

if it were not for the crack this would be selling for hundreds more in near mint condition..this is a great vintage Japanese rocker ...
The Model 4 consisted of a full size Stratocaster-style body made of American basswood, 22 fret maple neck with rosewood fretboard, and mother of pearl dot inlays. There was a version with maple fretboard and black dot inlays that was called the Model 4M. The Model 4 originally featured the Kahler 2300 tremolo.

Here we have one of our own JVG Reborn Old custom build PAISLEY 69-T guitars IN PROGRESS, its not finished or aged at all yet STAY TUNED for that part soon to come. Built the right way - the Old School way... same as Leo did back in 1969. OK..I know the Japanese reissues are very poplar but personally I do not care for the pattern or the color like I do the originals. The Japanese process on their Reissues are also different in that they use a decal transfer system much like the famous Photo flame or a water-slide decal, and they just do not have the same classic look , they are not 3 dimensional at all like Old School... so what you see here is different than those this is real old school Wallpaper!... we use old school wallpaper paste to apply it as well, just the same as in 69 the body gets finished in a catilized urethane finish several hunndred thin coats it seems like anyway...its quite the process and it take a long time to finish ione of these... its labor intensive and it truly takes a lot of man hours and so I can see why he Japanese came up with the transfer decal method that cuts the time to 1/6th .. but for you purest and those who want a correct old school version of a Paisley..The color has been painstakingly re-produced for us and this color nails the originals color... see for yourself Nothing like the Japanese Reissues by F. This is a JVG Reborn Old Paisley 69-T will fit the bill... This is for a custom order and we have all parts aged to look 40+ years old....

New ARRIVAL IN STOCK: sorry SOLD OUT! Here we a have a great nearly 40 year old Vintage Les Paul 59 Burst Replica out of the Hishino / Ibanez Factory during the prime Law-suit era this is an exact example of why they were sued in those days... have a good look at the pics... First the headstock is true to the Gibson Les Paul shape. The fingerboard on this example just oozes 59 Burst with its GORGEOUS BRAZILIAN ROSEWOOD FINGERBOARD... Wow look at that beautiful grain... now that you notice that have another look at the trapizoid inlays notice that they too are made of the correct cellulose nitrate materials used by the old 50's -60's Gibson.. this in of it self captures the auora and vibe of the Beauty of the burst... threts show little wear 90% almost minty... the neck itself is so slick have a look its an amazing neck too see its beautiful flamed maple 3 piece like 70's Gibsons were done this way too also body is sandwitch style as well the body is nice grade Mahogany and not chambered nicely bound same as vintage Gibson sized bindings nice touch because buy this time in the 70's Gibson sqitched to the larger ugley binding they later switched back in the early 80's ... Japan was knocking off the early burst at least a decade before the US started reissuing their own designs.. These vintage Japanese guitars were ahead of theior time a step ahead if you will... The not only set out toi build them to look like the old Gibson but they really wanted the sound to be right too it is evident with these PAS replica pickups made by MAXON they really nailed it and sound so great they get the great sustain of a PAF and have a sweet tone and then when cranked they can get expressivly nasty with some harmonics & overtones. The Maxon company is responsible for the famous tone produced by the TS808 & Maxon *)* , TS( and so on... They know TONE.. These Maxon pickups are highly sought after now by players & collectors and high bidders have paid upwards of $400 for one... JVG will not be parting out this beautiful timeless example of Workmanship it is a work of art as it is... The tone is that of the High end Tolai Ls120 we had a few years ago it too came with the Maxon Paf's ..its ( the Tokai Ls120 ) sound is Truly Legendary and those Tokais are selling for well over $3500 now...ya that what I say..WoW... This guitar has it ALL... The SOUND - The Playability action is dead on EZ ROCK Machine... I suggest that who ever layed down the Burst finish on this guitar with its realistic 59 classic flame top was a truly a master finish man its JUST RIGHT!!!!!... man I can not say enough about this little Japanese work of art... They TRULY NAILED IT...Its condition is WAY ABOVE AVERAGE too its really a Beauty in all aspects...
The top had just a few slight chips I carfully matched them and touched the spots only with nitro lacquer ..built it up - fine wet sanded sspot only buffed out and it looks original again..neck is near mint already, bottom back edge had a few minor chips again just matched -brush tip touched up and buffed just to prevent further chipping and preserve this amazing instrument. JVG Condition rating is Very good - Excellent 9/10 Vintage 40 year old players guitar this guitar is meant to be ROCKED get her today before she is gone for good this is a Keeper folks...must see & hear WoW!!!

Fresh RELEASE from the JVG Custom Shop... cured and ready to ship..
Superb! Correct color matched to the old school color Leo insisted on the boys on the line to make for him as legend as I heard it was that Leo went to lunch near the shop and walked past a hardware store and say a Paisley wallpaper and got some as a joke and came back to the shop after lunch and tossed the paper down on the work bench to the guys and said to " make a guitar out of this stuff " Hug?... its wallpaper.. yes we have to use wallpaler paste ..I know ... get started and so they did threw trial & error came up with what we know as the original Pink Paisley Telecaster this was back in the day in somewhere 1969 California... Here is a great Replica of the original.. and will make an outstanding example...
THIS IS NOT TO BE CONFUSED unlike the " F#nd#@ " Japan made reisue wich uses a water transfer decal method.. Our's is old school correct and is as simply as close as it gets without a time machine.
Beyond what you see here we can take this body threw our Relic finish with golding edges etc checking and aged honey ambering as part of our aging process...
we can also aged parts..neck etcor finish turn key for you by order...
if interested inquire: thank you for your interest Joe.
Sorry it SOLD OUT: Here we have a professional level PLAYER that is BEAUTIFUL to say the least very well made in Japan its over 31 years old but you can not tell by looking because its a " TIME CAPSULE " almost untouched... ok its been played allitle by an adult and kept near pristine for its age of 31 years unbelievably nice..JVG overall rated EXCELLENT -USED Vintage top fore...you can see cosmetics are amazing with just a few very hard to find & see nicks thats it!..WoW.. but when it comes to electronics... LOOK OUT these humbuckers sound AMAZING... they sould like old DiMarzios from the 80's like PAF's the best sounding not the super destorted one's this one sounds like Paf's and not a peep --no crackel no extra noise just quiet until you hit those strings them beefey creamey PAF tones come alive on this and thats no exaggeration.. this sounds just like an 80's Gibson...RECORDING READY clean sounding with sensitive tone knob adjustment very nice... this is a great guitar sounds as good as a guitar at 3 x the cost of this one. Ibanez has the Musician that is built like this we had one a while back it sold for 4 x this one's price.. also Aria has a very similar design.. Matsumoku knew what they were doing...
This I would consider a great SLEEPER... its looks, its construction which its body is Mahogany with beautiful walnut strips as seen and the neck is a high grade of Mahogany bolt on style with a nice 59 feel that is 1-11/16ths at the nut... tuners are original no extra holds so this baby looks to be 100% original and is a ROCK Machine....

First I'll mention the headstock is true to the Gibson Les Paul shape openbook and was originally sold without a Greco logo but instead this one is the very rare KOPY KAT version ..one reason this was done to make it tuff to trace its origin during the lawsuit. This baby has the rich looking like with it stands out and is out standing with its correct vintage aged perfectly cellulose nitrate style fingerboard inlays on its Brazilian Rosewood looking fingerboard on this example WoW THIS IS aA KILLER... just oozes 59 Burst with its GORGEOUS Fit & Finish speaking of finish it looks slick like glass and thin like nitro but its thin poly ..Wow look at that beautiful grain... now that you notice that this in of it self it really captures the vibe of the Beauty of the burst... the frets show very little wear a good 85++% almost minty... the neck itself is so slick have a look its an amazing neck too see its beautiful grade Mahogany.Sam as Gibson vintage sized bindings nice touch because buy this time in the 70's Gibson switched to the larger ugly looking bulky binding they later switched back in the early 80's to the original vintage size like this one has ... Japan was knocking off the early 59 burst at least a decade before the US started reissuing their own designs.. These vintage Japanese guitars were ahead of their time a step ahead if you will... They not only set out to build them to look like the old Gibson but they really wanted the sound to be right too and that is evident with these PAF replica pickups made by the great MAXON they Maxon really nailed the Paf tone pretty darn good and this example sounds so great they get the great sustain of a vintage PAF and have a sweet tone and then when cranked they can get expressivly nasty with some harmonics & overtones. The Maxon company is responsible for the famous tone produced by the Ibanez TS808 & Maxon , TS9 and so on... They really know their TONE!.. These Maxon pickups are highly sought after now by players & collectors and high bidders have paid upwards of $400 for one of these Maxon Paf's... JVG will not be parting out this beautiful timeless example of Workmanship it is like a work of art as it is... The tone is nothing short of that of the High end Tokai Ls120 we had a few years ago it too came with these type Maxon Paf's ..its ( the Tokai Ls120 ) sound is Truly Legendary and those Tokais are selling for well over $3500 now...ya that what I say..WoW... This guitar has it ALL... The SOUND - The Playability action is dead on EZ ROCK Machine... I suggest that who ever layed down the Burst finish on this guitar with its realistic 59 classic Cherry Burst flame top was truly a master finish man its really looks JUST RIGHT!!!!!... man I can not say enough about this little Japanese work of art... They TRULY NAILED IT...Its condition is WAY ABOVE AVERAGE too its really a Beauty in all aspects. This example is very clean for a nearly 40 year old rocker..with several lacquer brush tip matched touch ups at backs edges here and there no big deal its on the back and they match in color now so at a few feet away it looks real clen and the fron is very clean and original...and so this guitar is JVG Rated at excellent vintage condition 8.9+/10 easily or better... 100% excellent working condition, excellent electronics, frets & playability with great low action you can dial in either way you like it. Pickups sound truly awesome and I campare to a fine Gibson tone wise as good or better. A Great AAAA Tiger Flame Maple Les Paul for a song... just in!.... available today . Interested ?

SOLD OUT: OK this started in life as not too shappy of a genuine 1995 Gibson SG Standard cool but NOW with a few JVG-Reborn Old improvements .. we added a Maestro long Vibrola its a Gibson made in U.S.A. high Quality mahogany woods this is now a 1960's Recreation upgraded to some real fat vinage TONE- NOW.. read on - overall excellent condition with absolutely no cracks and no excused with no apologies..... for being such a badd @$$ come on just check it out, This Gibson SG Standard comes to you a done deal with the look the feel and the real sound of the American classic 1960's SG.... The reason I bought this guitar in the first place was to recreate one like one of my alltime favorite guitars I ever had which was a 1966 Gibson SG Standard with vibrola which can be seen here on the website... This US 1990's guitar also has that great looking Mahogany wood its beautiful grain caught my eye for sure, at that time it had a stop tail and common apearence even the logo looked to new and not enough patina for my personal taste I don't know about you but I prefer mine looking truly vintage and looking right , So I removed all stop tail business and dowled those 2 holes with mahogany and then touched up those areas and a few other nicks and a few chips to bare wood and matched the cherry lacquer and consealed the dowled area ( the vibrola pretty much obscures the dowled areas ) at the same time then oversprayed my aged cherry color lacquer ( not bright like the standard new finish was but to my minds eye more closely resemble my 66's cherry which is deeper red with a touch of mahogany to the cherry and so then went onto the full front & back respray thin nitro tinted lacquer same formula as old 1960's Gibson so it really deepened the look and richened up the color of the finish to like old Gibson specs..neck was already darker and more like this from factory and also was excellent besides one nick so I left the neck alone and this neck is slick like glass and is a nice handfull too barley a scratch on here never any cracks or issues, ALSO I removed the orig 90's klusons and then I sanded & prepped the front of the headstock and logo area so I could then with my aged nitro color carefully eye matched the rather new - white looking logo & crest mother of pearl shadded it until to my eye it looks just right so now its aged to look about 45+ years old....Please see those pics for detail, ALSO I added a genuine Historic Truss rod cover and ambered the togel switch tip NOW it looks exactly like my old 1966 , See the pics of those details. The neck is super straight,This neck on this one by the way is the correct shape and headstock angle just like my 66's with what is a must = NO VOLUTE this looks accurate and like the real deal!.. all based on my 66 . this was a must for realism for me... MORE ABOUT THIS GUITAR: The frets on this SG are excellent and have the prefered fret edge bindings of a high end guitar..( not all have that detail you know ) also the inlays on this SG are the correct inlays true to old school and made of cellulose nitrate and really looks exactly like my old 66. Then I removed the cheaper Kluson tuners installed by Gibson, and did what we always did back in the day to our Gibsons that have the Klusons that worked soso at best and that is to change out the tuner gears to the best of the old school tuners had to offer and thatis vintage nickel Grovers... Check them out they are the real deal and work superbly!.. the bottom holes lined up perfectly for this conversion so no added hold so it looks great and the top holes were close to top top edge of tuners and so I filled with mahogany and cherry finish brush tip touched up only and are gone now and it looks great too... better then the old days!...anyways onto the Vintage Gibson nickel Maestro Vibrola unit I installed is an excelent fit and really belongs on this fine 1960's correct Gibson SG Standard. Onto the JVG tone upgrade the Original Gibson USA Humbuckers sounded good before the upgrade but to get true classic vintage tone I had to change the cheap modern tiny nothing tone capasitors to the real .022 x400 Sprague Black Beauties used from about 1962 threw the 1960s vintage we offer these for $160 a set they are real 60's nos. early 1960's I use these to dial in our real vintage Gibson tone of the 1960's... This guitar NOW HAS the look - the feel & most importantly now the sound of my old friend my vintage 1966 Gibson SG Standard with its nickel hardware and slightly aged patina finish.. Everyone will think this is your real 1966 SG std... it can be your secret.IT comes with a no logo vintage case that has the old gold linning so it looks 60's correct....

SOLD OUT: Here we have a beautiful Korina wood neck threw custom guitar built in California by Frankenstein Customs USA.. I'm not sure this could be Schector Frankenstein but also another Frankenstein builder out of California USA...either way this is a very cool custom Korina Neck threw strat. It plays just great with excellent action and this guitar has seen little use as I have had it stocked away for years in our shop and durring our move 8 years ago I thought it was lost or stolen but it surfaced last week so I re-strung it with new strings and plugged her in and wow it sounds awesome... like I mentioned its action is nice and low and these Duncan pickups sound great and I was getting some nice harmonics with it too and I'm sure you will have a blast with this unque custom Korina wood guitar. I assume your familiar with Korina wood and for those of you that are not Korina is know also as Limba it is indigenous to Africa and is also know as the African Mahogany similar but different it is light weight and extreemly resonant and is excellent tone woods for musical instruments especially guitars.. famously know for its use in the vintage 1958 Korina Flying V by Gibson it has been highly praised for its tonal properties and when you combine that with this guitars design with its Neck threw it is among the most resonant guitar builds possible and that is a fact. This was my interest in the guitar ....its got some great woods..ok the neck is made up from a center 5/16th of Walnut then on both sides a 1.1/16th strip of figured quarter sawn strip of Maple, then the body extends out with Korina on both sides and this makes for an extreemly resonant type of build. Even the pickups are trimmed with rosewood trim rings ..nice touch!...This is a tremolo type guitar with its floyd Rose licensed bridge & locking nut design, Pickups are double humbuckers are by Semour Duncan and are fixed mount, all driven with one controll knob for volume and a 3 way switch a very efficiant design and meant for killer all out ROCKIN!..you can do that very well with this guitar. Easily upgradable and customizable you will find this is a great solid performer. Frankinstein Custom USA without the custom guitar price. Priced right..
SORRY SOLD OUT: OK..here is your chance at a deal from JVGuitars
Just in and just made available and in STOCK its a pretty darn RARE Monster Flame Maple top on this beauty. This one is a high quality vintage guitar that was made 37 year ago in Japan and is a well crafted guitar. Its a fine classic to and now Reborn Old with a Nitrocellulose lacquer Re-finished top here in our JVG Restoration shop and was finished in an old school antique violin SunBurst created in multi subtel thin mist lacquer layers to shade that has ended up well as you see it now I went for the look of a realistic 50's finsh over this amazing looking curly AAAA Flame Maple top it was worth it because well again look at it, regarding the finish we made it to look like its original to this guitar and 36+ years old it looks pretty much just like its 36 years with subitel wear fine scratches etc , low more hand built feel to it and more like a $3500 G!b$0n aged 1959 R-8 or R-9 Les Paul with a cool Gumby headstock and a solid maple set-neck its quite unique looking and is striking now. This one has the look for sure just check out its very realistic looking figured curly flame maple top is an amazing example. The Sound is also AWESOME as this guitar has the famous combination of professional grade pickups for an amazing sound that is recording worthy its neck pickup is an nos old stock Seymour Duncan 59 Paf replica and the bridge is the original MAXON paf style humbuckers it originally came with many of the very top Japanese Les Pauls and others came loaded with these beautiful sounding Maxon made Paf replica pickups made by the folks that know a lot about tone and were responsible for the famous TS808 Tube screamer and many other Maxon made effects and pickups ... these sound very nice and also has been upgraded tone - wise with a set of 2 vintage correct paper and oil Vitamin Q tone capacitor that finishes its set off... Yes of course this is a set neck les Paul style guitar its body is a solid high grade mahogany piece and also has the back contour belly cut and is more comfortable to play and is not the pancake construction type Mahogany, its neck is also solid maple. The neck has a nice medium profile feels like my 60's Gibson and is arrow straight sighting down it and its 1-11/16th at the nut width, the frets look excellent like newish and are original, The fingerboard is a BEAUTIFUL example also something you would expect on a killer $3500 G!b$0n R-8 its very dark with beautiful grain and it looks like it is likely Brazilian Rosewood " that alone on a Gibson was a $400 upgrade and the do not even offer that option anymore. The inlays are also old school cellulose nitrate type and are the same as old school G!b$0ns as well just have a good look. They have aged and look beautiful set of the dark rosewood like a much more expensive guitar should have... tuners have been upgraded and are chrome sealed and work excellent, with a roller bridge the intonation set excellent as is the play action this guitar plays slick, the nut is the original and is Brass for an excellent sustain playing 70's & 80's ROCK. This thing kills for a fraction of the Gibson yet plays & sounds just as goo as the vintage 70's Gibson, looks better and the Gibson is $2700-3900 for the 37 year old Gibson. Here is a well built alternative to that without any sacrifice n tone or playability you will be hard pressed to find a more cool player for 2x - 4x the price.. This guitar came into to our shop on trade was a bit of a quick project for me but because this guitars AMAZING TOP it was worth the effort at one time the previous owner a pro touring musician had changed the pickups config set up back and forth a few times and at one time had a toggle switch active set up and this left a hole in the maple top right between the control knobs.. look at that area you can't really tell anymore and besides the hole it had what we call a standard 70's cheap "Clown Burst " as we call it that is the quick finish sprayed on in the high production factories where they have to finish about 40 guitar in a day as apposed to a custom shop that can take a day or 2 to put a beautiful shaded finish on them.. so being that it had a hole in its top and a clown burst too I just stripped the tops poly clown burst finish off and then doweled the top with maple and refinished the top only in the aged antique violin sunburst ( Think Joe Walsh's 1959 Burst ) seen now in these pics that allows the true beauty of this guitar top shine threw... Clearly the beauty of the Burst influenced now... I'm pleased it has the 50's vibe now and its no closet queen this guitar is GIG worthy and a proven performer it will stand toe to toe with the G!b$0n R-8 now...see for yourself ....the nitrocellulose lacquer has also been aged so it looks right on this vintage guitar. If I didn't tell you about the hole and re-finish work you would not have noticed if you open the electronics access in back you will see the maple dowel. OK so all that being said this Japanese Vintage Guitar has been sort of REBORN OLD now and is in top playing form today. Set up and plays like a dream.. Ready to Rock & or RECORD tonight!... let me know if you have any questions or if ready to purchase, thanks for looking. any Other questions?.....Joe 408-375-1364 . .
