NOTES ON THE SPECIFICATIONS & EDITIONS
Model Origins
The Signature, Autograph and 40th Anniversary
models were designed and built by the Fender USA Custom Shop to
Hank Marvin’s specifications and particular requirements at
the time; they were commissioned and endorsed by Fender
UK and sold through their distributor Arbiter.
The Shadows 50th Anniversary model is, as near as is prac-
ticable, an exact reproduction of the Fender Stratocaster Se-
rial Number 34346, imported into the UK by Cliff Richard in
1959 and used by Hank Marvin on The Shadows’ early hit
singles. The edition was planned, commissioned and sold ex-
clusively by the independent Fender UK dealer Oasis Musical
Instruments. The original guitar was loaned to the commis-
sioning dealer, it was examined in detail, and measurements
and photographs were taken in order to replicate it as accu-
rately as possible. The entire edition was Masterbuilt by Greg
Fessler as a Dealer Select issue.

Edition Numbering Systems
The numbering systems of the
Signature, Autograph and 40th Anniversary
models take no account of additional in-
struments built for Hank Marvin and others.
However, in the case of the
Shadows 50th Anniversary
model, 54 units were manufactured of which only 50 were issued for retail.

Fender USA regard the
Signature and Autograph models as
a single edition of 200 instruments despite the obvious, but
minor, differences in their specifications. It is reported that
when launched in 1992 the Signature was originally intended
to be an edition of 100 instruments, but in 1995 the run was
then extended with modifications to become the
Autograph
.
All guitars sampled with a serial number up to and including
100 appear to have the
Signature
specification, all from 101
onwards have the
Autograph specification. Records suggest,
however, that the combined number of units of both models
manufactured and sold amounted to only 164 in total before
the Signature/Autograph
edition was finally discontinued
in 1998, probably in anticipation of the arrival of the
40th Anniversary model.

Body Colours

Although Fender catalogue the colour of the
Signature, Autograph and 40th Anniverary
models as 942 – Vintage Fiesta Red, none of the guitars sampled actually matched the
Fiesta Red used by them on their stock model issues. When
seen side by side, the Signature model is probably closest to
standard Fiesta Red, the Autographis slightly lighter and
pinker in colour whilst the 40th Anniversary
has quite a strong pink hue and is yet lighter again.
The Shadows 50th Anniversary
is noticeably darker in colour than the other three models; the shade of red is ‘cooler’
with definite pink tones when viewed in a bright light. Fender
have designated the colour as 985 - Custom Red, and it is
based largely on the recollections of Hank Marvin and Bruce
Welch of the original colour of Stratocaster 34346 when it was
received back in 1959.
Neck Specifications and Variations
As with colour, although the neck specification for all models
is described by Fender as “Nicely Figured”, there were clear
differences in the patterning of the necks on the guitars sam-
pled. In ascending order of the degree of patterning the
Signature model neck probably ranks lowest of the four, fol-
lowed by the Autograph the 40th Anniversary and Shadows 50th Anniversary
were the most highly figured. In the case of the Shadows 50th Anniversary
each piece has also been carefully selected to replicate as near as possible the
colour and patterning exhibited on Stratocaster 34346.
The necks fitted to the Autograph
and 40th Anniversary tend to be much paler in colour than those of the
Signature and Shadows 50th Anniversary
models. The coating on
the necks of the Signature
,
Autograph and 40th Anniversary
models is thin layer nitrocellulose, which gives a matt
finish. The neck of the Shadows 50th Anniversary model
has a beautiful deep honey-coloured finish, due in part to its
tinted gloss nitrocellulose coating.

The fret marker LED’s on the
40th Anniversary instruments were retro-fitted in the UK.
They are powered by a 9v battery
which resides in the routed area beneath the back-plate and
they are controlled by the push-pull mechanism of Control
Switch Number 2.

A big Thanks to Ian Evans for the very detailed spec of all the Hank Guitars. A labour of love.

A rare opportunity for a Rolling Stones fan. This Guitar was won in a competion and was given to the current owner in person by Bill Wyman at his restaurant Sticky Fingers.
Also included is a second scratch plate as the signed one has been kept in an envelope so the signature is pristine, a signed copy of his autobiography and some pictures of the day.
It's only rock and roll but we like it.

Gibson Refin Hot Mod 1955 Les Paul Wraptail

Fantastic Les Paul which is a great weight with a great neck and a fab tone. Seriously recommended.

Refin Hot-Mod 1955 Les Paul Wraptail

A Blend of “Mod” and “Vintage” in One Hot Tone Machine
Underappreciated during its original run from 1958-’60, the Les Paul Standard with sunburst finish and PAF humbucking pickups caught fire from the mid ’60s to the early ’70s, when players like Eric Clapton, Michael Bloomfield, Jimmy Page and Paul Kossoff carried it to the heights of wailing virtuosity. As the original item became more and more expensive and harder to come by, players in search of the ’Burst look and that creamy, thick humbucking tone began modifying the more plentiful 1952-’56 Les Paul Goldtops that were originally made with P-90 pickups, creating guitars very much like this exclusive limited-run Refin Hot-Mod 1955 Les Paul Wraptail from the Gibson Custom Shop. In the course of these modifications, a rare breed was created: a “modded” vintage guitar that retained considerable value with players and collectors alike.

When done right—which meant sending the guitar back to Gibson for a full factory refin and a pair of desirable new humbucking pickups—these guitars became the closest possible thing to a genuine 1958-’60 Les Paul Standard, and delivered in spades the look, tone and feel that so many players were seeking. The Custom Refin Hot-Mod 1955 Les Paul Wraptail embodies just such a modification done perfectly, and it even exhibits the only obvious tell-tale sign of such alterations: the slightly off-center seam in the two-piece maple top, which would originally have been hidden beneath an opaque Goldtop finish. This guitar begins with the template of a 1955 Les Paul with solid one-piece lightweight mahogany back and carved maple top, adds the “Refin” element of rich nitrocellulose cherry sunburst finish, gives it the “Hot-Mod” of two BurstBucker humbucking pickups, while retaining its early ’55 “wraptail” bridge, represented by a TonePros wraparound bridge with locking studs and long steel anchors. Add it up, and it’s a bundle of PAF-fired ’Burst tone in your hands.

Gibson’s BurstBucker pickups are acclaimed as the most accurate PAF reproduction the company has ever made. A BurstBucker 1 in the neck position offers vocal warmth with plenty of definition, while a slightly hotter BurstBucker 2 in the bridge provides more growl and midrange punch for solo work. Both are made with unpolished Alnico II magnets just like the originals, and slightly mismatched coils for that bite and edge that great original PAFs are known for. To give all this tone the most playable spin possible, the Refin Hot-Mod 1955 Les Paul Tune-O-Matic is fitted with Gibson Custom’s new “Soft Shoulder” ’55 neck profile, created after intensive study of an original ’55 Les Paul with a “magical feeling” neck. With a similar front-to-back depth as standard rounded mid-’50s necks, it differs in its gently sloping sides, a feature that makes it sit incredibly comfortably in the hand.
