Jeff makes light work of heavy metal.
Posted On: 03 Jan 2024
Eldreds Auctioneers first specialist sale of 2024 looks set to hit the right note with a one-owner collection of electric and acoustic guitars and an impressive anthology of vinyl LP records.
Amongst the fourteen guitars can be found three Mexican-made Fender Stratocasters, in different colours, two with synchronised tremolos, four Fender Telecaster electric guitars, a Fender Jaguar with pink and cream body and a limited-edition Epiphone Sheraton semi-acoustic Sunburst guitar, with internal label “Epiphone Inc, Nashville Tennessee”. The collection also offers several amplifiers by companies such as Vox, Blackstar and Marshall.
All Jeff's Christmases came at once when tasked with cataloguing a wonderful collection of approximately 300 vinyl LP records from the late-60’s and early-70’s that will have bidders excited and in which much interest has already been shown. The LPs span mainly the progressive rock and early heavy rock/metal genres and include examples from bands such as Hawkwind, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Ten Years After, Neil Young, Wishbone Ash, Uriah Heep, King Crimson and Budgie. A raw sounding original copy of the one-off rock album “Lord Sutch And Heavy Friends” is included, with contributions by Jimmy Page and John Bonham, Noel Redding and Jeff Beck. Many of the album covers still contain a “Peter Russell Ltd, Hot Record Store, 24 Market Avenue, Plymouth” label inside, a link which will bring back happy memories of a favourite music shop for Jeff and many local rockers.
A full catalogue listing will be available before the sale and Eldreds welcomes consignments of other musical instruments for the auction, as well as stamps, coins, medals & military interest items, antiquarian books & first editions, toys, diecasts & model railway, photographs & postcards, antique & vintage textiles and collectables of all kinds.
