Since its debut in 1956, the Duo-Sonic has found its way into the hands of genre-defining artists, becoming an underground sensation that helped create alternative music in the dingy clubs of New York City. A surprisingly hip guitar with upgraded contemporary features, this instrument features slick style and a unique sound that's perfectly at home in modern music.
The Harley Benton SC-Junior – here in a lush black finish – is based on a classic single-cut design loaded with a single P90 single-coil at the neck position that gives you more drive, punch and warmth than you can shake a stick at! Raunchy rock tones meld with a luscious exterior replete with a range of quality details: A jet-black finish, a smoothly playable amaranth fretboard with characteristic dot inlays and a red tortoiseshell pickguard. That classy exterior is also reflected in the period-correct wrap-around bridge, Wilkinson vintage-style machine heads and the chunky playing feel provided by the C profile neck. A stripped-back, souped up rock machine!

The shape of this electric guitar has been a favourite of guitarists of all ages for decades.

DC-Junior FAT Faded Cherry
Originally conceived as an affordable guitar for learners, this stripped-back design was later seized on by rockers who loved its classic, raucous tones and simple layout. And in this highly affordable bundle edition, we’ve stayed true to that initial vision! The mahogany body and chunkier neck of the DC Junior FAT are paired with a stacked splittable “dog-ear” P90-style humbucker at the bridge position to give you plenty of growl that mellows nicely as you roll back the volume. The open-pore satin Faded Cherry finish brings out the best in the fine mahogany wood grain and, frankly, feels pretty darn sexy. Time to unleash this rock'n'roll animal!
Not everyone wants all the bells and whistles. Sometimes dead simplicity and pure tone is all that's necessary. So here comes another masterful design by the celebrated Dennis Fano of Fano Guitars/Novo Guitars fame. Introducing the Rivolta Mondata II: a stripped down, straight-to-the-point iteration of the new Rivolta Guitars Mondata. A stop-tail design, a couple of pickups, and a single toggle switch is more than you need to get the job done on stage, in the studio, or your living room.
American Vintage 65 Jazzmaster
The Fender American Vintage '65 Jazzmaster Electric Guitar takes you back to the middle of that musically momentous decade, when the reverb-drenched surf had largely receded and the Jazzmaster began its steady decade-long ascent toward alternative indispensability for subversive new generations of iconoclastic guitarists. It had also acquired some elegant new design features by 1965, such as a bound round-laminated rosewood fingerboard with larger pearl dot inlays, and distinctive white "witch hat" control knobs. The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender's best selling guitars (their early-'80s introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was "back" as the CBS era ended). Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, they've completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept-restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more-based on actual vintage guitars. Includes case.

The classic P-90 pickups (neck and bridge) are loaded with AlNiCo V magnets, audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.

Esteban Midnight Legacy solid body electric
If you're aware of Esteban and his late-night home shopping appearances hawking bad acoustic guitars, then you know the man's name and dubious legacy. But did you know that he made a solid body electric guitar that has the sound of a Strat with the playability and neck profile of a Les Paul? Well, he did and he only offered this one model before going back to selling his bad acoustic guitars. Heck, he probably didn't actually have anything to do with this model, and that's what makes it such a nice little sleeper of a guitar. It's solidly built, has good weight to it, an easy to play neck and the single coil sounds of a Strat. If you're familiar with Dr. Groovy, Scott Grove, then you know that he's snatching up these Midnight Legacy guitars whenever he finds them because they're a solid, inexpensive guitar. This specimen has a smaller-than-a-quarter sized chip in the finish at the bottom of the body that has been colored back in with black Sharpie, but otherwise the rest of the guitar is in very good, clean shape. There are scratches on the pickguard from normal play, but nothing too bad. The neck is straight, I have set it up and intonated it and all of the pickups and settings work. This is a good, cheap guitar with the craziest headstock design ever, but it's sure a fun little one to play and you won't care if the kids get their grubby hands on it or if your jamming buddies shred with this thing.

Optional hardshell or EpiLite Case is available.
