Description

You're looking at a vintage Ampeg Heavy Stud GEH-150 guitar made in Japan in the 70s. It is Ampeg's take on the Telecaster and comes with its ashtray cover for the bridge pickup. The guitar is modeled on the Fender Telecaster, but it has some neat touches, such as the white pearl block inlays, Gibson stye headstock, and a a unique and beautiful laminated wood body. Also, has a humbucker in the neck position kinda like a Telecaster Custom. It has a fully bound neck, and the frets and neck are in good condition with some minor grooves in the thin frets. The guitar has very little wear and tear, 9/10 condition with only some minor scuffs. True to its name, the guitar was intentionally built to be heavy (8 pounds, 13 ounces) to enhance tone and sustain. No case included. Thanks for looking!

Additional Web Info

Ampeg Heavy Stud (GE-150/GEH-150), made from 1973-1975. An import from Japan, single-cut body with weight added for sustain, single coils or humbuckers (GEH). Ampeg debuted its Stud line around ’73. These were copies of Gibson’s SG, Fender basses, and the Fender Tele. Ampeg’s version of the Tele was known as the Ampeg Heavy Stud GEH-150. This came in a natural or cherry finish with a wide three-and-three head, chrome hardware, pearloid pickguard, and neck humbucker/bridge single-coil, like a Tele Custom. These had rosewood or maple fingerboards with dot inlays. The series appears to have lasted about as long as other American imports, being gone by ’75.

Guitar Setup

All our setups are done by our in-house trained luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
