1962 Fender Jaguar Sonic Blue

1962 Fender Jaguar Sonic Blue Demo

1962 Fender Jaguar Sonic Blue

How often do you get the chance to get your hands on an original vintage 1962 Fender Jaguar in the super rare custom colour, Sonic Blue? Well here on V&R we have only had 1-2 for sale over the years, so we were looking very much forward to demo this old & beautiful jewel.

The Fender Jaguar introduced in 1962 as a top-of-the-line model – designed to attract players from Gibson. The production ran over only 13 (1962-1973) years since guitarplayers found more interest in fx. Stratocasters and Telecasters. It achieved it´s popularity on the surf guitar scene. The one we have here is from September 1962. All original with case. Sonic Blue is a very rare custom colour for the early production Pre-CBS Jaguars, so we did not hesitate much when we were given the opportunity to demo this jewel.

Dream Sequence Hologram Electronics Demo by Vintage & Rare

Dream Sequence from Hologram Electronics

The Dream Sequence from Hologram Electronics landed on our desk a few months ago and the other day we took it out for proper test drive on our pedal board.

This pattern-based multi-effect pedal certainly is in a league of its own and is an endless source of inspiration for the creation of a wide variety of cool soundscapes. Like the name says, this little powerhouse combines a pattern sequencer with a bunch of effects geared towards spacey, pulsating sonic architectures with a rich, dreamlike quality and a distinctive synth-like feel.

Fender Custom Telecaster history. 

The Fender Custom telecaster is different from the Telecaster Custom in the way the it has other features. 2 different models.

In 1959 Fender came out with a new model – the Fender Custom Telecaster. If featured a double bound body. This year Fender also started to do slab-board fingerboards. Apart from the body binding there is no difference from a standard Telecaster. It´s all about the binding.
