Inventory Update: 3rd Quarter of 2012


What is in Rex’s garage this month? Things have changed around quite a bit since my last update, and I am going to have to make some room. If anything interests you, let me know – there is almost nothing sacred in my shop, and none of it is crap.

Acoustic Guitars: the Simon & Patrick Songsmith hangs in there, and an Epiphone Masterbilt AJ 500RE. It is nice to have an acoustic with onboard electronics again.

Ukuleles: two Kala solid mahogany ukes, a soprano and a tenor. No electronics on these.

Electric Guitars: I currently have two Japanese Les Paul copies: a 1980 Aria Pro II and a 1983 Tokai Love Rock with Burstbuckers. I also have a pair of Japanese Fender Telecasters, a faithful 1852 re-issue and what I believe to be a factory Keith Richards Micawber with a brass bridge and a humbucker at the neck.

Guitar Amplifier: I only have one of these right now, a Fender Blues Junior III. What a sweetheart of an amp!

Electric Basses:3 Japanese lawsuit-era Precision basses: a Tokai Hard Puncher, an Aria Pro II Precise Bass and a Greco Spacy Sound. Also on the P-Bass front is a JV era Fender 57 re-issue. There are also two ESP PJ basses, both custom-made for semi-famous artists. A 1980 Aria Pro II SB-1000. An Ernie Ball MusicMan Stingray Classic. And lastly, a pair of Sadowsky Metro basses (a JJ and a PJ) that I am especially eager to move along.

Bass Amplifiers: Things are crazy here. There is the Ampeg SVT Classic with an 810 cabinet, as well as a 1970s Ampeg V4B and a solid state Ampeg B-15T Portaflex that I finally got around to getting repaired. And of course my trusty Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0-12T with a 12T extension cabinet.

Effects: I still have my board full of Cave Passive Pedals and a Boss Tu-3 tuner, and I recently picked up an Alembic F-1X pre-amp that I am still monkeying around with.

That’s it for now. Check back in September and hopefully the collection will be a little more manageable.
