This is a once in a lifetime type of sale -a sale you do not want to miss if you a vintage guitar lover.
This is home of Vincent (Vinnie) Bell who was the inventor of the “watery”guitar sound (the predecessor of the wah wah pedal) and the Coral electric sitar in 1967. He worked with and also invented for Danelectro in the 1960’s & 70’s right here in Neptune, NJ. He was prolific in session recordings, commercials and guitar making. For much more info on Vinnie go to www.vinniebell.com or just Goggle his name.
This sale is in Vinnie’s home where he lived, worked and invented. Inside the home is his workshop and recording studio with over 30 different guitars – mostly made by Vinnie and mostly all prototypes – the Coral electric sitar, the Vinnie Bell Combo, Danelectro Coral Firefly, Danelectro 12 string Scorpion, Danelectro U-2, as well as others – Martin, Fender, Epiphone D’Aquisto, The Gibson, Ovation Balladeer, Maccaferri, banjos….. and more!!!!!
The workshop is full of guitar making / luthier tools, woods, guitar parts, machinery and more and the recording studio is full of vintage electronics, amps, speakers, LP’s, CD’s, sheet music……
And then there is also a pipe collection (again many of which Vinnie handmade), a knife collection (from pocket knives to swords), many books, and more more more!!!!!!
