This thing is built for the road with a heavy polished chrome chassis, almost identical to Boss size.inlay), (pickups), (case). Although Ive had a number of Vandenbergs in the past, this is the first Vandenberg Custom Ive had, or even held.

This guitar is in beautiful condition, barely played, and with that great Musicman round back neck, feels perfect in the hand. 2015 Fender USA Professional Standard Telecaster HS, (front), (back), (headstock).

Best I can figure, the USA Professional series replaced the Highway One, remaining the best value in an American Tele. The Original Tele Noiseless and a quantum change in Fender pickups and still in production today. Two in stock, this ones perfect and theres another one on this page in nice shape in the box.

Pickups were swapped out from the original 57 Classics to a set of Fralin Big Singles ($300/pair), which are noted for their more articulate single coil tonewithout the hum of a single coil.

In addition, it has been wired for the volume controls on top; tones on bottom, rather than side/side.

Not a 10 top but on another day I think it could have made the grade. Neck/middle pickups are Vintage Noiseless, which were Fender's premium pickups for the era and still preferred over many players today due to their traditional tone, but without the hum of vintage single coils - plus this HSS model had Fender's "new" DH-1 "Enforcer" humbucker in the bridge for the best of both worlds. I think Music Man is among the cream of the crop for American made guitars. Features include African mahogany body with high gloss poly finish, Music Man Modern tremolo with vintage bent steel saddles, 3-play black pickguard, 25.5" scale, 10" fretboard radius, 22 tall/medium stainless steel frets, 1-5/8" nut width, select natural-aged maple neck with rounded back and satin poly finish, select rosewood fretboard, Schaller M6 locking tuners with 4/2 headstock configuration, 5-bolt neck attachment for perfect alignment and zero shifting, sculpted neck joint for smooth access to higher frets, electronic Shielding Chrome plated aluminum control cover, 500kohm volume and tone pots with .022F tone capacitor, 3-way toggle pickup selector and a pair of Music Man custom wound humbuckers with chrome covers.

This one even comes with an extra pickguard in black pearl, in case the all-black motif isnt to your liking. Dont spend $1599 on a new one when you can have this beauty, with an extra pickguard, for $1099.

Section below see page links at the bottom of this page (hit Control and End buttons) for 1000's more pieces of gear. Not sure why PRS gave this model its own name, Special 22 when its simply a Custom 22 with a middle pickup. Pickups are 245s in the neck and bridge, with a Lindy Fralin single coil in the middle, controlled by (thankfully) a 5-way blade switch. Other features are figured maple top over mahogany body, Pattern (Wide/Fat) neck shape, East Indian rosewood fretboard with Outline bird inlays, nickel hardware, PRS tremolo bridge, Phase II locking tuners, master volume and master tone. A few clear coat indents or scratches but nothing through to the wood. Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray Guitar, (front), (back), (headstock), (extra guard), (case).

It plays easily with low action and with the Fralin pickup it has a sweeter selection of single coil tones. Super clean - modern take on the old Stingray 1, first released in 1976 along with the Stingray Bass.

Would be very at home in a modern country band or, of course, rock or blues. From a mint 03 American Deluxe comes this stock set up, factory wired and drop in ready. While the bass took off, the guitar never did, due likely to its tone, which was too hi-fi for rock music. In the current version theyve done away with the active circuit so no more squeaky clean tone, just meaty rock/blues tone.

It brings back the 11-step detented Gain control that was missing from Version 2 with an additional stage of FET. Optical control means it preserves your signal, plus no pot to wear out. I wont be knocking the bolt on models, theyre great guitars, but this thing isexciting!
