Here is what Duesenberg say...
'The Bonneville is a solidbody, dual pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring a sturdy mahogany construction and a 648mm scale.
The Bonneville is a powerful Rock'n Roll ally. It is made from premium mahogany for both body and neck and features a sturdy long neck tenon construction. It sports an elegant cream binding around the body and neck and carries a stylish 5-ply black and white pickguard.
It is fitted with two of our acclaimed GrandVintage humbuckers which deliver a transparent and defined tone serving all your overdrive and distortion needs. They are controlled by our solid 3-way switch which selects either one of them or a combination of both.
The Duesenberg Lightning fretboard inlays, easy to use Z-Tuners and the combination of the Steel Saddle Radius Bridge and our aluminum Stop-Tailpiece underline the straightforward nature of this instrument and will give you the durability and sophistication you expect from a Duesenberg instrument.
All our instruments are fitted with our own hardware, which you will only find on a Duesenberg. We design it with attention to even the smallest details to create truly unique instruments from tuner buttons to jack plates.
All our fretboards are carefully pleked and finished by hand for optimum playability and the smooth feel they are famous for.

'For players who prize original-era Precision Bass sound and style, the Fender '50s Classic Series Precision Bass is a must-have instrument.

Basically brand new, bought in the last few weeks! Unplayed.
Here’s what Alvarez say...
‘In conceptualizing Artist Elite, our goal was simple: Produce a collection of guitars beyond comparison.
There are of course many wonderful guitars available, and some are every inch as beautiful as Artist Elite, but we don’t know of any that offer the same value.
This stunning line of guitars is the culmination of years of R&D that allows us to produce custom style instruments from amazing tone woods with a truly radiant vibe. Artist Elite look amazing, sound rich and offer a level of fit and finish rarely attainable at such price points.
The AGFM80CEAR is a beautifully developed Grand Auditorium that delivers in terms of both of tone and looks. The minimal styling of this guitar really creates a classy vibe with the light blonde of the spruce and maple framed with Ebony. Tonally this guitar has a robust voice, with shimmering trebles and plenty of low end and an instant response. It also offers added functionality and comfort with its cutaway and slim style bevel armrest, making the AGFM80CEAR a great looking, versatile instrument.
Master Luthiers around the world have been crafting bevel edged armrest guitars for many years. The feature not only makes the guitar more comfortable to play, but also allows the maker to demonstrate their skill and craftsmanship in producing beautiful instruments.
After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of our culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Our tone woods are carefully cured; our components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques we use are continuall
'A truly stunning, exotic beauty with a distinctive voice.
The Neptune Blue Moon is a truly individual instrument. One of the beauties of genuinely solid, natural tonewoods is that each piece of solid timber used will vary in its natural colouration and its particular grain patterns. So your Blue Moon will be as unique as you and your music.
Tonally, Mango has an interesting character. It is not as loud and punchy as rosewood nor as straightforwardly mellow as mahogany, yet it bears its own distinctive warmth. With frequency prominence starting a little below that of mahogany and dropping off a little earlier in the mid-range, the overall tone could be described as dark and moody. Much like maple guitars, the reduced level of resonant overtones makes the Mango-bodied Blue Moon a perfect stage guitar: Eminently controllable, balanced and resistant to feedback.
Mango trees grow freely right across the Indonesian archipelago, so the timbers used on Blue Moon guitars are sourced close to our workshops in Java, Indonesia, and as always, from certified timber merchants.
Finished with flamed Maple binding, Macassan Ebony fittings, Fishman Electronics and complete in a hard case, your Faith Neptune Blue Moon is sure to intrigue and delight you at every turn.'
This glorious looking Jazz-style bass features a Basswood body, Canadian Maple neck, two single coil pickups, vintage hardware and a (not seen often enough) muted vintage green finish. This luxurious bass is only £179 including a gig bag!
This great looking player grade 6121 from late 1960 / early 1961. This guitar is not a common sight! Overall the guitar is in good condition with buckle-rash on the back a general feel of light wear through the body. The neck feels great and the frets are in great shape - especially since a recent fret stone.
The guitar does have a few modifications / condition notes to mention...
Non-original Grover closed back tuners (originals would've been open-geared)
The pickguard has either been re-finished in black / inherited a black guard from another guitar (note the cut out for the neck pickup in the guard doesn't fit around it correctly) / had a guard made
The truss rod cover doesn't match the shape of other examples (not out of the question that this is the original)
The logo on the headstock has either or both bled out a little and/or at some point been re-touched (perhaps in response to it bleeding over time)
The gold on the hardware is faded throughout
Some of the binding is coming away from the body
I would urge anyone interested in this Gretsch to come and see it person as it needs to be played to be fully appreciated!
