Shaftesbury Resonator Guitar - made in Italy - early 1970's.



Shaftesbury Resonator Guitar made in Italy in the early seventies. It is a copy of a much older model made by a company in South America called Del Vecchio. This is a very nice looking guitar, very well made as all the Shaftesbury models are and it has a large resonator circle in the centre surrounded by six small and two larger ones at the top which allow the sound to come out. The guitar has a fifteen inch lower bout, and the body is fully bound. The condition is very good and its a fun guitar... more

Dallas Shaftesbury Valve Amplifier 1962

Colchester , CO4***, UNITED KINGDOM


1962 5 watt valve guitar amp
Perfect working order, no untoward issues. Lovely little amp.
Bad points are
1) lots of marks and wear from age.
2) There is an extra Master power switch and power bulb on the control panel, but these are not wired up to anything. I don't 'think' these were factory issue, so most likely explanation is the previous owner installed them but never actually wired them up.
Great little amp, does exactly what you'd expect
Collection from Colchester ... more

Shaftesbury Bass Guitar 3263, Sunburst 1970's, Rose-Morris, Eko 

Eastbourne, BN22***, UNITED KINGDOM


Shaftesbury Bass Guitar 3263, Sunburst 1970's, Rose-Morris, . I have owned this guitar since 1986. Have now retired from playing gigs and basically I am downsizing. It has a couple of flaws, first is that the total volume rotary knob was taken out, but this hasn't affected the performance asthere are separate volume controls for each pick up. There is some slight cracking in the varnish, but in a small area of the body. The tailpiece logo has been knocked off but the rosewood mount is still ... more
