Aethertone Steampunk Style Stratocaster on eBay

Here's custom work you won't see too often.  No EVH Frankenstein or SRV 'Number One' clones for this creative DIY'er!

Dubbed the Aethertone AE1, this Steampunk style guitar is actually an '89 Fender Stratocaster that was modified so that the entire body appears to be wrapped in burnished metal plates. 

A tribute to Victorian-era steam engines, the plates, according to the seller, are not really metal.   And neither are the 150 painted-on screws that seemingly hold the plates in place!

The Steampunk even  features its own steam pressure gauge that opens up to reveal a secret compartment to store picks! 

And check out that deeply scalloped fretboard!

It wouldn't surprise me if the Fender Custom Shop starts knocking on the door of the Aethertone AE1's creator very soon.

eBay item number: 140430483553

1966 Marshall Super Lead Plexi Head Owned by Eric Johnson on eBay!

The sellers of this fine 1966 Marshall Super Lead Plexi head were at first a bit coy as to who the celebrity owner actually was, showing us only a partial signature on the handwritten letter of authenticity.  I'm digging Eric Johnson's cursive penmanship!     

The listing for this particular amp has ended, but what the hey, better late than never I always say.

eBay Item number: 230500114170

The sellers also have what is possibly an authentic Jimi Hendrix owned Marshall JTM45, serial number 7026 on their website which you can check out here!

Cool Guitar Website Alert | Arizona Guitar Brokers!

I just received a comment from Jordan Warner on my Leon McAuliffe-owned Fender Broadcaster post.  Jordan was the eBay seller of that vintage gem and now runs Arizona Guitar Brokers.

Arizona Guitar Brokers is currently featuring a Leon McAuliffe-owned Fender Precision bass along with some very nice vintage Fender Jazzmaster guitars from the 50's and '60s. 

The multiple picture views of each item in AZGB's inventory is a nice touch too. 

And dig that bird's-eye maple-topped BC Rich Mockingbird!

Check out and check back often!
