Neglected Beauties: Iconic Instruments For Hire

Fender 50th Anniversary Telecaster
1996 Fender Telecaster American Standard 50th Anniversary Limited Edition, Flamed Maple Sunburst
One of only 1250 one-off Telecasters made to commemorate 50 years of Fender, with a flame and tone to die-for.
Gibson ES-335 Block 1998
1998 Gibson ES-335 Block Limited Edition,
Translucent Red
It's an ES-335, but it's a rarely seen one - with the black edging and aged nickel hardware.  Definitely a neglected beauty.
Fender Mexican Telecaster 1992
1992 Fender Telecaster Mexican Standard,
Metallic Blue
It's a Standard, it's one of the first Mexican productions, it's entry-level stuff . . . but it looks and plays beautifully, without modification.
Gibson Les Paul Goldtop 1996
1996 Gibson Les Paul Classic,
No collection complete without a Goldtop.  Hardly neglected, but definitely beautiful, this Classic carries all the hallmarks and tone of one of Gbson's most iconic guitars.
Gibson Flying V 90 1988
1988 Gibson Flying V'90
Nuclear Yellow
One pick-up, one pot, one Steinberger, no regrets.  Held by many to be Gibson's finest rock/heavy metal Flying V model, the Nuclear Yellow V'90 screams "Play me fast and loud!"
Yamaha FG-411 12-string 1994
1994 Yamaha FG-411-12,
12-string, Natural
Another Yamaha punching well above its weight.  Lovely early-run FG 12-string.  If you've always thought you've wanted to try out a 12-string, then this is the one for you.
