The strings are available in both stainless steel and nickel-plated steel.

Benicia, CA (April 22, 2014) -- Dunlop Super Bright Bass Strings are for slap bass and players who want to stand out in the mix with a crisp top end without sacrificing any fundamental. Carefully designed and tested by our team of bass players, Super Bright Bass Strings sing with clear, defined highs that are supported by a fat, balanced bottom that keeps your sound full and round.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
