THE GUITAR ORPHANAGE

Below is our collection of guitars that are vintage, a little odd, misfits, a little banged up, slightly used, or just plain groovy and in need of a warm and caring home. Please contact us for an adoption application to see if you qualify to provide one of these beauties a home.

 

BURNS STEER

2004, Korea

Reissue of their popular late-70s/early-80s model most famously played by Billy Bragg. Has a sound hole, but is not semi-acoustic. Maple neck, Burns humbucker and Tri-Sonic pickups. 5-way pickup switch, volume knob and two tone knobs.  

$700

 

EPIPHONE AIRSCREAMER

2003 Limited Edition

This officially-licensed collaboration with the Airstream trailer company is also a signature model for the band Trailer Park Troubadours, whose logo graces the headstock. It features a solid maple body, rosewood neck, Grover tuners, EMG HZ humbuckers, and a volume knob in the "wheel" that doubles as a push-pull pickup selector switch. Comes with original gig bag!

SOLD

 

FENDER CUSTOM SHOP STRATOCASTER

DICK DALE Signature Model

Alder body, beautiful maple reverse-headstock neck, rosewood fretboard, three Custom '50s pickups with special switching, volume knob, synchronized tremolo (includes whammy bar not pictured). The flipped headstock reverses the lengths of the strings and, combined with the reversed angle of the bridge pickup, recreates the sound of a left-strung right-handed guitar.

SOLD

 

FENDER STRATOCASTER

'68 Reverse Headstock Reissue, 2001 USA

This model was introduced as the 'Voodoo Strat,' a Jimi Hendrix signature model based on his famous Woodstock axe. After the Hendrix estate withdrew their licensing, Fender removed his name but kept the killer guitar! Alder body, maple neck. The flipped headstock reverses the lengths of the strings, and, combined with the reversed angle of the bridge pickup, recreates the sound of a left-strung right-handed guitar.
