Vintage Guitars Info Picture Gallery.
Additional pictures for each collectible vintage guitar maker are posted here.
The vintage guitar pictures with the source listed as "VGI" are my personal collection.
Hence they are vintage guitars I either own now, or owned in the past. I took
these pictures, and then paid to have them scanned. They are not published
anywhere else. Likewise, any pictures labeled as "source: guitar show"
are pictures I took of vintage guitars at a show, and are also not published
anywhere else. I would greatly appreciate them being left here
for your enjoyment.
Most of the vintage guitar pictures with the source labeled as "unknown" were "hi-jacked"
from other internet sites over the years. I wish I
kept information on were I got them all, but I didn't. I provide "credits"
where I can remember their source. If you see a vintage guitar picture
that is yours, email
me and I'll give you credit here. Sorry about that.
- 1961 Epiphone Casino. This is
a very early, first year Casino. Note the original single layer tortoise shell pickguard.
This guitar also sports a metal "badge" Epiphone peghead logo.
All later 1961 and beyond Casinos used a white multi-layer pickguard and a pearl "Epiphone"
peghead logo. Only a few month of Casino production used this pickguard and metal
peghead badge. This sunburst (or is it Royal Tan?) finish is extremely faded. Source: VGI.
- Epiphone Coronets, 1962 and 1964.
The red Coronet is the pre-1963 3+3 tuner arrangement, in cherry red. The green 1964 model has
a "bat wing" peghead. The translucent green finish is original, and is pored filled
with a whitish-silver filler to show the grain. This finish is known as "silver fox".
Note the treble side horn is larger on the red 1962 model. Source: VGI.
- 1969 Epiphone Sorento "Special".
Normal Epiphone Sorrento's don't look like this! The label inside the bass f-hole has
the word "special" written next to the model name, and boy they weren't kidding! Normal Sorentos
are a single sharp cutaway, thinbody guitar. This double sharp cutaway, thick (3") body
looks more like a Barney Kessel. Note the wrong bridge is installed. Source: VGI.
Coronet, cherry red. This solidbody electric model was conceived by
Gibson when they started Epiphone production in 1958. Originally a squared
edge slab body with a NY pickup, in 1960 the model was changed to the 2nd
generation Coronet with rounded edges and a P-90 pickup. By 1963 there
was a 3rd generation Coronet with 6 tuners on-a-side. This is the
2nd generation model. Source: VGI.
Broadway, cherry red. Before Gibson bought Epiphone in 1957, Epi made this model
from 1931 till they sold the company. When Gibson took over, they kept
the model alive, but made it an electric archtop instead of acoustic.
1967 was the only year Gibson made this guitar available in cherry red.

- 1956 Stratocaster in sunburst.
This guitar, dated 5/56, has an Ash body. Within a few months, Fender switched to using
Alder for the body wood, and changed the peghead string tree from a round button to
a rectangle "butterfly" clip. Source: VGI.
- 1965 Stratocaster in sunburst.
Note the original "green" celluloid pickguard. Usually by early 1965 these pickguards
were stopped being used and replaced with more "white" plastic pickguards. Source: VGI.
- 1968 Stratocaster in
sunburst. Lacquer neck with a transition logo (1/68) with a polyester finish
body. Source: VGI.
- 1959 Telecaster
Custom. The first year for the Custom Telecaster was 1959, and this
model is body dated 5/59. I beleive this to be a very early Custom because
of the shape of the cutaway (it's slightly different than a regular Tele).
Customs are different than regular Teles in
that they have binding around the top and back of the body, have a sunburst
finish, and have an alder body. They didn't sell very well and hence are
somewhat rare. Source: VGI.
- 1958 Stratocaster.

- 1962 Jaquar Pink
Sparkle. With matching pink sparkle peghead, the owner claims this
guitar is original. Since the peghead decal did look original, I would
have to agree. The sparkles are much larger than the standard Fender
metallic finishes. A very rare color (too bad it's not a Strat or Tele).

- 1963 Strat,
Sonic Blue. A great color. Source: guitar show.
- 1963 Strat,
black over sunburst. First time this guitar was painted sunburst
at the Fender factory. But for some reason they choose to paint it again
in black. You can see the sunburst finish at the right forearm area.
This was a very common practice and was an economical way for Fender to
use up rejected sunburst finished bodies without having to
strip them. Source: guitar show.

but its really a true custom-color gold. Shoreline Gold wasn't even
available till it was introduced in 1959 as a Pontiac color. All of Fender's
custom colors (except Blond and Candy Apple Red) where actually automobile
colors. Source: John Pedan.

White finish is over a (rejected) sunburst finish. No clear coat or
undercoat (other than the sunburst) was used by Fender on this example.

- 1964 Strat Firemist
Gold. A great special order guitar. Firemist Gold was a 1965 Fender
custom color, so this may actually be the first Firemist Gold guitar
Fender produced in mid 1964. Also has gold plated parts and a maple cap neck.
The neck is two pieces but instead of a rosewood fingerboard, it's
maple. Source: guitar show.

- Four J-45s. From right to left:
1943 J-45 with "banner" peghead logo and mahogany top (far right), 1946 J-45 with old style script "Gibson"
peghead logo (but no "banner) and rectangle bridge, 1952 J-45 with modern "Gibson" logo and upper
belly bridge and 19 frets, 1959 J-45 with larger pickguard and 20 frets and red in the sunburst (far left).
- 1946 J-45. Just after WW2,
Gibson stopped using the "banner" script logo ("only a Gibson is good enough") because of an
advertising campaign used by Epiphone (their largest competitor). Epi advertised their
guitars as "when 'good enough' isn't good enough". This J-45 still uses the the war-time
script logo, but lacks the "good enough" banner. By 1947 Gibson coverted most models
to their new "post-war" block logo. Note the smaller rectangle bridge. Gibson started using a "belly"
bridge just a couple of years later. Source: VGI.

Note the pickguards on the J-200's. The 1952 pickguard is engraved celluloid
with a border line around the edge. This pickguard style was used from 1939
to late 1954. The 1957 pickguard is injection molded styrene with no line and a
slightly different design. This style was used from
late 1954 to 1984. Source: VGI.

and the pickup poles moving to the center of the pickup. Note the pickup cover

400ces archtop, sunburst, Alnico pickups. Source: unknown.

original red finish and custom headstock, complete with 2 P.A.F. pickups.
Even though P.A.F.'s were basically used up by 1962, the high-end Gibsons
with gold parts sometimes have them till 1965. Because the pole spacing is
different on the neck pickup and they sold less of the high-end guitars,
there was less demand for gold P.A.F.'s. Hence you may see them on guitars
after 1962. Guitar: Alex Lutzski. Photo: Frankie Fan.

archtop, sunburst, short diagonal pickup. Compare this to the 1940 model
with the large 6.25" long diagonal pickup pictured above. Note this
war-time guitar wasn't finished till after WWII because of a lack of
parts, and is marked "CULL". This was a term Gibson used for a "second".
In this case the top split before being finished. All parts except the
pickup and the knobs are post-WWII parts. Source: VGI.

fully hollow thinline, sunburst, dot neck but with chrome pickup covers.
Notice looks like an ES-335, but neck joins body at 16th fret, P-90 pickups,
trapeze tailpiece, and not semi-hollow. An ES-335 neck joins the body
at the 19th fret, has Humbucking pickups, a stop tailpiece (1958-1964)
anchored to the solid internal maple block, and is hence semi-hollow.

- 1965 Firebird,
Golden Mist. 1965 was the last year for full reverse Firebirds,
and this is one of them in the custom color Golden Mist. When this
color was shot, it was originally a bronze gold color. But with
age and the yellowing of the clear lacquer over the gold, it has become
a LesPaul colored gold. Note at the back of the peghead
where someone sanded the finish in a crude attempt at defacing the serial
number; you can see the original bronze "Golden Mist" color where
the yellowed lacquer has been removed. Source: VGI.

- 1958 Les Paul
Special Tenor. My buddy Joe swears this guitar is original, but I have
my doubts. It's a single cutaway, cherry red, Tenor (4 string) Les Paul
Special with metal pickguard and control plates. Definately a special order.
But I've never seen a single cutaway L.P. Special in cherry red (they're
always Limed Mahagony where the double cutaway ones are cherry red, unless
it's a TV special), and I've never seen metal control plates and pickguard
that were original. Also weird is the tuneamatic bridge, which wasn't used
on Les Paul Specials. But there are no other holes indicating the normal
wrap-around tailpiece. Inked on serial number, which leads me to believe
that maybe the finish is correct. The original owner claims he ordered the
guitar this way. Source: Joe Menza.

pickup covers removed showing the "zebra" neck pickup and the "double
white" bridge pickup. Notice the difference in the two sunbursts. 1960 models

- 1936 National Style 35 Tricone.
A very well worn Style 35. This squareneck tricone is known as the "lute player" model,
because of the sandblasted luter player on the back. The sandblasting was originally
airbrushed with colored enamel over the sandblasting on many Style 35's (towards 1940 National
stopped doing this to save money). Unfortunately, most of the color
has worn off. You can still see just a bit left of the orange and blue on the lute player. Source: VGI.
- 1933 Tricone Style 1 1/2
Electric Squareneck, prototypical electric tricone National.
Very interesting, one-of-a-kind electric tricone. Uses standard resonator
coverplate with a large maple 1" thick pancake underneath. The top of the
maple pancake is painted black to hide it's presence under the coverplate.
The maple pancake fits in the soundwell and holds the pickup and controls.
The resonator cones are removed from this system and discarded. Note the
absence of the standard National tailpiece. Instead the strings stop just
after the pickup, much like a Gibson stop tailpiece. I've seen National
"Silvo" black & white electric coverplates on single-cone instruments.
But i've never seen an electric tricone (if you've seen one, email me).
The body has an engraved border making this a "Style 1 1/2" tricone.
