1980s Westone Rail Bass headless design with sliding pickup

guitarz.blogspot.com: Hello!I'm a casual bass player with a lifetime goal to eventually become a bit better than at the moment. I first heard about Westone's Rail Bass in your blog (http://guitarz.blogspot.fi/2009/04/westone-rail-bass.html), and now a couple of years later I finally bought one on eBay. Cost me a bit less than 500 euros (£380, $650). Even though red is the least cool color it was produced in ...

Silvertone 14409 vintage Japanese Mosrite-inspired surftastic guitar

guitarz.blogspot.com: This 1960s Japanese "Silvertone model 14409" guitar (made by Kawai possibly?) has some very strong Mosrite stylistic influences, although that proto-Ibanez-style headstock does look a little at odds with the body design. Despite the obvious influences instruments like this are becoming increasingly sought after in their own right, with more and more collectors becoming interested in vi ...

Fender Jazz-A-Caster, MIJ signature model of Will Ray of the Hellacasters

guitarz.blogspot.com: This 1998 Japanese-made Will Ray (of the Hellacasters) signature model Fender Jazz-A-Caster is one of those weird Fender hybrids that takes one of their models and mixes it up with elements from another model. It's a bit like the Pawn Shop series but on a grander Custom Shop scale. This so-called Jazz-a-caster obviously has a lot of Telecaster in its DNA but also has a little Jazzmaste ...

Arbiter 12+6 Doubleneck leftie conversion

guitarz.blogspot.com: As I already mentioned recently, I'm on something of a doubleneck kick lately. I'll explain more in a forthcoming blog post, but in the meantime here's a doublenck Arbiter 12+6 based on the now legendary Gibson EDS-1275, which has been very comptently converted into a left-handed guitar. It's got to be a better leftie doubleneck than some of the Chinese-made cheapies being sold on eBay ...

Can anyone help identify this mystery semi-hollowbody guitar?

guitarz.blogspot.com: ...Love your blog, I've been reading it daily for many years now!A friend of mine came up with this great looking, but un-branded hollowbody guitar. He got it from the original owner who bought it in 1962. The tailpiece is not original because it was missing when my friend got the guitar. It has some weird active technology in it, powered by a 9 volt battery. When you push the square w ...

Possibly unique left-handed Rickenbacker 4005/6 semi-hollow Bass VI

guitarz.blogspot.com: Andrew K writes: What we have here is a Rickenbacker 4005. If that was not rare enough already, it is a lefty. Even rarer than that, it is also a Bass VI. Apparently the 4005 was introduced in 1965 and remained in production until 1984. This also applies to the 4005/6 model seen here, although perhaps the 4005 was never a production model as much as a custom model, so lord knows if any ...

Atlansia Solitaire single-string fretless bass guitar

guitarz.blogspot.com: I'm trying to figure out if I could get through an entire gig on bass using a single-stringed bass such as this Japanese-made Atlansia Solitaire currently listed on eBay UK. I suppose it depends on the gig and what songs were required. It could certainly work in some scenarios I can think of, although I think that if I had to keep it minimalistic I'd be a lot happier with one of Atlans ...
