  1. Stunning guitar and almost new (simply haven't picked it up as often as I thought I would). Selling to fund other things. Rubber stuff on case has come off which is an easy fix, otherwise it's in pretty much as new condition. Sounds spectacular as you'd expect from a Japanese-build Yamaha From Yamaha site The AC5M ARE, concert body cutaway guitar, features all-solid mahogany back and sides with hand-selected sitka spruce top with Yamaha's original A.R.E. wood-torrefaction technology. Natural, dynamic plugged-in tone from the SRT2 pickup system perfectly suit your performance on the stage and the made-in-Japan premium build quality will gratify advanced players' desire. Concert Body Cutaway Solid Sitka Spruce Top with A.R.E. Solid Mahogany Back & Sides New Scalloped Bracing for Louder, Richer Acoustic Sound Natural, Dynamic Plugged-in Sound by SRT2 System High Comfort Neck Profile Simple and Distinctive Looks Elixir Strings GOTOH Open-gear Tuners TUSQ Nut and Saddle Hardshell Case Included Made in Japan Current RRP around £1350 Cheers Chris
  2. Lovely neck that was on my Strat for years. No idea of manufacturer but really nice to play. Lightly oiled back, stunning board, frets have seen use but are all OK. Looks like a previous owner tried to relic the headstock, nothing a little light sandpaper won't get rid of. Tuners included, no idea of make but are solid and do the job. Board really is stunning
  3. This is a rather nice hardtail Strat late 70's Fender body, lightly/moderately reliced. PUPs, circuit and pickguard are Seymour Duncan Everything Axe https://www.seymourduncan.com/pickup/everything-axe-pickguard which retails at £320 https://www.gak.co.uk/en/seymour-duncan-everything-axe-guard/126372. Contrast with pickguard makes it seem a little darker on camera/screen, colour is closer to final four pics. I appear to be selling this for close to what the body on its own (without PUPs & circuit) cost me a few years back, grab it quick before it goes on eBay
  4. Lovely neck that I bought for my Strat just as I became a Telecaster player Three bolt attachment with micro-tilt etc but will sit happily on a four-bolt neck of course. Truss rod access at side of heel. frets are all very very nice
  5. Bought for a project but never got around to finishing it. As new condition. Will be sent in original Fender packaging Chris
  6. Yep, it certainly has something about it
  7. Fender weren't known for changing something unless it really needed changing, so they either made them bigger because it was more economic to do so (which seems unlikely but possible I guess, more margin for error for example), because the bigger headstock sounded/stayed in tune better (even more unlikely), or because the larger headstock was more recognisable/iconic and therefore protectable by law (plenty of early instruments had headstocks not unlike early Tele's/Precisions), and enabled the word 'Fender' to be picked up in TV/photos more easily. I know where I'd put my money. And I love the bigger 70's Strat headstocks.
  8. Another step in my current gear restructure. This is a rather nice hardtail Strat with a late 70's Fender body, lightly reliced, and a new Fender Mex neck wit a lovely big 70's headstock (I tried to source an original '70s maple board neck but nearly every one I played was in such poor shape that I opted for a newbie, and frankly the new Mex stuff is hard to tell apart from the US made gear, hence opting for Mex). Body and neck are both very nice, you may want to cut the nut slightly lower than is currently the case, doesn't bother me but it's as it came out of the factory at present which is normally quite high for most players. Neck and body are the only original vintage Fender parts. PUPs, circuit and pickguard are Seymour Duncan Everything Axe https://www.seymourduncan.com/pickup/everything-axe-pickguard which retails at £320 https://www.gak.co.uk/en/seymour-duncan-everything-axe-guard/126372. Tuners are Fender US. Like the other Strat I'm selling here, this guitar owes me over £1000!
  9. Another step in my current gear restructure. This is a rather nice Strat if you like that lived in/well played/hung out with the Stones look. Neck and body are both original Fender '79, bought from Fender Factors a couple of years back. The body is very very nicely beaten up, please see photos. This is not a case of 'there's a small dink in the upper bout'. The neck is in very good condition, lovely dark rosewood board and, of course, the large headstock Neck and body are the only original vintage Fender parts. PUPs and circuit are from Joseph Kaye https://www.josephkayeguitars.com/about/ who, among others, makes PUPs for Wilco Johnson. Tuners are a nice set of Klusons bought new from WD (I think) last year. Pickguard is a lovely aged 3-ply Tort I picked up from the USA which still has the film in place. Guitar owes me over £1000, £800 is a decent price for this rather lovely old thing.
