My collection for sale

Alberto Biraghi con Leo Fender

I started buying quality guitars in 1974, I started collecting in 1978 and I kept doing it until today. When I moved to a smaller home I had to to reduce my collection, keeping only the guitars I felt in total empathy with: a few outstanding instrument that I selected during the years for condition, playability and tone.

I recently reduced playing the electrics, so I decided to sell most of my guitars. As said, my guitars are in perfect condition, fully original, mantained with the utmost care and - in my opinion - awesome sounding. Being well known in the guitar world, people are safe when dealing with me. Besides this, please note that:

Fender no-caster 1951 - #0939

April 1951, bought in January 1993 from Gruhn Guitars. I'd describe it as near mint considering the age. Totally original, frets have no wear. Original case. SOLD

Fender Telecaster 1957 - #21650

Super clean with just some minor finish wear on the neck first positions. Stunning flamed maple neck. Original tweed case. SOLD

Fender Stratocaster 1958 - #34211

So clean it looks like a Closet Classic masterbuilt. Late 50es tone. Perfect fretboard, great tone. Original tweed case. SOLD

Fender Stratocaster 1964 white - #L23574

Very clean, pleasantly yellowed. Perfect fretboard. White tolex case. Gruhn Guitars direct appraisal. SOLD

Fender Telecaster 1964 - #65675

The sexiest rosewoodboard Tellecaster ever made. Amazing tone. Well used, surely not abused. Frets sill have a lot of meat. Appears on the cover of ACCORDO's book about Fender story. Black tolex case in decent shape. SOLD

Fender Telecaster Thinline 1969 - #270443

Nice 1969 Thinline in the smooth late 60's three tone burst. Excellent ++ with black tolex case. Perfect three tone burst. Neck pickup rewound by Gruhn Guitars. SOLD

Fender Telecaster Custom 1975 - #S712942

Keef style Telly, dead mint with black tolex case. Great tone, untouched electronics. Bought from Gruhn Guitars a few years ago. For sale in Italy - € 3,500.00

Fender Telecaster Thinline CS 1989 - #98

Built by Scott Buehl and dated February 2, 1989, bears a serial number #98, one of the very first guitars built by the just established Fender Custom Shop. Near mint except for a small ding on the lower side. Black Fender case of the era. Bought from Gruhn Guitars in the mid Nineties. In the late 90'es a well known Fender masterbuilder told me that the neck might be a leftover from the mid 60'es, because the early Custom Shop did not make maple boards. For sale in Italy, but priced to not sell unless somebody wants it badly :-) at € 7,000.00 (and by the way is a rare guitar).

Gibson Les Paul jr. 1957 - #7-2442

My only non-Fender electric, one of the five best sounding guitars I ever heard and played. Professionally refretted. Bought from Gruhn Guitars in the early 90's. Comes with an aftermarket custom case of the same age. SOLD
