2005 "LEFTY" Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster with Upgrades, (front), (back), (headstock), (Deluxe features), (upgrades), (case). Hey guys and gals - tell your wrong-handed friends about this one. Beautiful American Deluxe with upgrades aimed at the rock player, with a trio of DiMarzio's and a "metal" look with a diamond plate pickguard. This trio of DiMarzio's was chosen for a wide variety of tones, and hum-free sound, even at high gain. There's an X2N (DP102) in the bridge, Chopper (DP184) in the middle, and an HS-2 (DP116) in the neck - wired to a 5-way switch for a good selection of traditional Strat tones, and much fatter tones that will make your amp scream. Other than the pickguard assembly, it's all stock with all the Deluxe features including Fender/Schaller locking tuners, 1-pc maple neck with Abalone dot inlays, contoured neck heel, raised chrome logo, polished chrome bridge/saddles. Other features include alder body, 22 medium jumbo frets, 9.5" radius, 25.5 scale, tilt-adjust neck, single string tree, and Schaller locking type strap pins. A new American Deluxe is going to run $1499 at the chain stores but this one is barely played, with a set up that's guaranteed to thrill, for $1050. Includes Fender molded case in similarly nice shape.
LEFTY - 1983 Fender Stratocaster Elite - Black, (close-up), (headstock), (back), (fine-tune nut), (case). Rare Lefty version of this model. I have three of these Lefty's in stock now (2 black), but this one is in investment grade. This guitar is all original, other than a brass nut that was a "must" for the serious player back in the 80's. There is no fret wear, no finish scratches front or back, no finish checking or other flaws. It appears to be a guitar that was bought new 28 years ago, played for a month or two, and put away in the case, only to surface in 2011. It's noteworthy that this guitar still has the fine-tune nut, which were frequently never installed, or removed and lost. Rather than using long descriptions, click here for a page I've created which outlines features of this innovative model. Lefty Elites are few and far between and if you're looking for a killer player with perfect electronics and one of the cleanest examples on the planet, this one's just $1499. Includes original lefty Fender case in similarly nice condition, but not a trem arm.
LEFTY - 1983 Fender Stratocaster Elite - Sunburst, (close-up), (headstock), (back), (case). Rare Lefty version of this model. Rather than using long descriptions, click here for a page I've created which outlines features of this innovative model. There's one aspect that seems to be consistently different on the lefty Elite models. The belly cut appears to be much deeper and wider than on the standard righty modes. This guitar is all original and overall very nice shape with a high luster finish and little to no finish checking. Worst flaws are a few wear spot on the edge of the fretboard (shown here), two bb-size paint chips on the back (shown here), and light pitting on the bridge. It has never had the optional fine tuner headstock locking device installed so there are no extraneous screw holes. Lefty Elites are few and far between and if you're looking for a great player with electronics that function perfectly, this one's just $1299. Includes original lefty Fender case but and original trem arm.
LEFTY - 1983 Fender Stratocaster Elite, (close-up), (headstock), (back), (frets/fretboard), (hardware), (case). Rare Lefty version of this model. Rather than using long descriptions, click here for a page I've created which outlines features of this innovative model. This guitar is all original and overall pretty nice shape for its age with the worst flaws being tarnished or pitted hardware (bridge, neckplate, fine-tune nut) and wear along the edge of the fretboard, primarily in the lower register. Unlike many of the Elite models I've had, this guitar has been played rather than spending its life in the case. There are normal scratches in the clear coat, not through the finish, and actually only moderate fret wear but with a nice set-up this is a good choice for the player who doesn't want to pay top dollar for a pristine model that's too clean to take to a gig. It's noteworthy that this guitar still has the fine-tune nut, which were frequently never installed, or removed and lost. Lefty Elites are few and far between and if you're looking for a killer player that works perfectly and plays superbly, this one's just $1199. Includes original lefty Fender case but not original trem arm.
ssLefty Epiphone Les Paul LP-100L, (front/back), (headstock). Don't confuse this with the "Special II", easily identifiable with it's flat top - this is a Les Paul 100, and features an arched top of maple over mahogany body, dual volume and tone controls, matching cream pickguard/pickup rings, pearloid Epi headstock logo, and sells new for $150 more. If you want the classic Gibson Les Paul feel and sound, but find the Epiphone Les Paul Standard a little higher than your budget allows, this one's for you. With dual open-coil humbuckers, a rosewood fretboard with a bolt-on mahogany neck and great body wood give this model the powerful, sustaining tone character of the best Les Pauls. They make these in an all-mahogany model for their painted finishes, but for their transparent finishes like this beautiful cherry sunburst, a maple top layer is used for aesthetic purposes. The pickups deliver the classic Paul tone - a powerful cutting bridge pickup and a thick, warm neck pickup. With a list price of $524 these sell at 40% at a nice price of $314 new. This one is in immaculate condition, set up to perfection, and just $239(SOLD 5/25). Add used Gibson gigbag for $20 (pic).
Hofner Beatle Bass - Icon Series - Lefty, (front), (back), (headstock), (case, etc.). As new condition and unplayed, with plastic still on the pickguard and pickups. With so many Beatle fans in the world, many of whom couldn't afford a $2400 500/1 reissue, and since a lot of instruments are bought purely as memorabilia, it only made sense for someone to produce a model that's quite playable, but manufactured in China for a fraction of the cost of German labor. The Hofner Icon Bass has the look that made this the most iconic bass in the history of rock and roll: dual staple pickups pearloid pickguard and control plate, rosewood bridge with steel saddle plates, 5-bar trapeze tailpiece, violin-shaped arched-top and back body, spruce laminated top with flamed maple laminated back and sides, and white body binding. If you're a Beatles or McCartney fan, this is a lefty, and the one you want. If you're a player, this is a real blast to play. With a very small body, and super lightweight hollowbody design, you barely know there's a bass strapped around your neck. It also has a tone that sounds very close to the old Beatle recordings. Again, this bass is unplayed except for my tech who did a very nice set up on it and at $349, you can't go wrong, especially considering that includes optional hardshell case.
2007 Epiphone LEFTY Les Paul Special II, (front/back), (headstock). Immaculate condition and a set-up that shows that you don't have to spend $400 to get a nice playing guitar. up that's better than factory. This is the most basic model of the Les Paul line and an excellent choice for entry level to intermediate. Features include Alder body - beautiful cherry sunburst finish with a high gloss finish - Mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, dual humbucker pickups controlled by master volume - tone - three-way selector, and stopbar/Tuneomatic bridge. List price is $307 but this nice barely used one's just $159(HOLD Tim H 1/31).
Danelectro '56 U-2 - "Lefty" , (front/back), (headstock). - in cool retro color "Aqua", which is more of a surf green. Realizing the supply/demand shortage of these guitars in lefty's, we took the bull by the horns and converted (pic here) this one, which was simply installing a lefty aluminum nut, working a few of the saddle string slots, and re-setting the intonation. Just let us know where you'd like the strap pin installed, basically any of the three locations shown here. A few years ago Dano dropped the entire line and came out with the '56 Pro, which was soon dropped, and they're now making the '59 DC and the new Dano Pro which is sort of a Gumby shaped body style. Player's love the '56 U-2, even if only to pull them out for one or two songs per set. But they set up flawlessly, are feather weight, and nothing sounds like these vintage lipstick pickups. The fact that you can get a pro-quality tone in this price range is remarkable. Stacked knobs give you volume and tone on each pickup plus the usual 3-way selector. If you're a lefty and don't mind a guitar that used to be a righty (Hendrix thought it was okay), this one's around $75 cheaper, set up with superb action, and yours for just $225.
LEFTY Fender DG-10LH, Acoustic Dreadnought. New, perfect, never retailed. Features spruce top, mahogany sides and back, in classic dreadnought style. Satin finish lends itself to better transfer of energy and this is a very good sounding acoustic for the money - plus setup better than any neglected guitar in a store. Listed for $284 but this one is untouched, fully setup, and just $165.
LEFTY Fender DG-10CELH, (pic2), Acoustic Electric Cutaway. Again, new and perfect. Specs are the same as the DG-10 except features a cutaway and Fender CE-300 preamp with endpin output jack. List on this one was $399 but, again, this one's fully setup and just $229.
2001 Fender DG-10CE-LH Lefty, acoustic/electric, very clean and nice guitar for the bucks, $225
