Danny Gatton Collection
Here is your chance to own a piece of guitar history! These instruments were Danny's actual playing instruments in the years before his untimely passing. His 53' Tele was long gone and had been traded for a 36' Ford Coupe.
His Fender Custom Shop number 1 Telecaster (first in thumbnail) was modified by Danny to include a center pickup. A new pickguard was also added, the original is still in the case. Tom Wheeler author of 'American Guitars' signed the instrument. The neck plate bears an inscription in Danny's hand, "Stolen from Danny Gatton, 1991'.
His Fender Custom Shop number 2 Danny Gatton prototype Telecaster (second in thumbnail) is in factory original condition and includes the original shipping box from Fender to Danny's address in Maryland. It remains in near mint condition and was only played once in the studio according to Danny's handwritten letter.
The third guitar pictured is a Randy Wood acoustic. It's a single cutaway flat-top with highly figured Maple back and sides, spruce top, sunburst finish, and ornate carving at the neck heel as well as multiple binding, Herringbone purfling, with ebony fingerboard, and abalone inlay from end to end. It is a masterwork with multiple inlay and Danny's name at the end of the fingerboard. This is the finest example of detail work by Master Builder Randy Wood.
The final piece in the collection, the Fender Custom Shop P/J Bass, was made for Danny by Fender guitars as a benefit of his agreement for the signature model Danny Gatton Telecaster. It combines features of an early black guard Fender Bass with a Jazz Bass pickup, a split P-Bass pickup, and concentric controls. It's also hand etched by Danny and dated 4-4-93. It is the only one known to exist.
With this collection is a 30's Gibson red-stripe-tweed case for the Randy Wood acoustic, the original cases for the two Telecasters with the letters of authenticity, and the original Tweed case for the P/J Bass.
