This All Nighter model features a center block of Spanish cedar running through the body to offer better feedback control. The bent side

guitar has handwound Kent Armstrong split coil pickups for an amazing variety of tones. There are two push/pull pots and one tone control
with a 3-way flip switch. The neck is a maple/rosewood Mighty Mite bolt on with a custom "Lehmann Whoosh" headstock. The back and
sides are Brazilian Lacewood. The string length is 24 3/4" and the lower bout is 15 1/2". Comes with quality Ritter gig bag or deluxe TKL

CSN. GIBSON L-3, 1921, SSC. $.
picture | picture | picture |picture | picture | picture |picture | picture |
Great Ragtime era guitar and early archtop design from Gibson. The L-3 features 13 3/4" wide lower bout and a 24" string length. The beautiful
dark red sunburst top features a racy 1920's pin-up girl decal. The back and sides are finished in deep mahogany colored finish. It has the original
one piece ebony bridge, and tailpiece with tortoise shell bar and pin set up. The large neck has a bound ebony fingerboard, and the tuners are
Golden Age antiqued reproductions. The inlaid tortoise shell pickguard is not original. The neck is straight, the fingerboard has been leveled, and
there are new frets. It plays easily and it's really fun to play with that old timey tone!

HOFNER 500/1 VIOLIN BASS, 1966. OHSC. $3450.
picture | picture | picture |picture | picture | picture |picture | picture | picture picture
This bass is in really good condition, showing honest playing wear and no abuse. The pot code indicates it was made in 1966
and it has the Staple Pickups. Everything is original on it I believe, and it plays great. The neck is straight and the bridge has
plenty of adjustability. Probably had a neck reset at some time. There is a finish crack along the neck joint of the heel but the
joint is solid and seems to be a common thing on these basses due to expansion/contraction.
