Reunion Blues Vintage Guitars Road Show - Part 3

December 19, 2008

In the third segment of Reunion Blues' Vintage Guitars Road Show, the show hits up Bananas at Large in California. Highlights include:

  • A very rough '69 Jazz Bass with so many modifications - including removal of the binding, and the owner's name and SSN etched into the hardware - the appraisers get a little upset. Still, the bass' value will surprise you.
  • The single prototype of Fender's Gold Custom Shop Strat. There was a limited run of 100, which was commissioned for NAMM's 100th anniversary in 2001.
  • Near-perfect 1961 SG-style Les Paul Jr.
