1951 Gibson J-50

Natural, crack free and charming with early features from Gibson’s golden era. Has a tapered headstock, small pickguard, skinny braces and a dark (almost black) Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard and bridge along with a wide grained Sitka Spruce top that will fool wood nerds into thinking it’s Adirondack. But, old growth Sitka aged for over 70 years with equally old Honduran Mahogany back, sides and...

1956 Gibson Les Paul Custom

Black (of course), EX+ A really clean example of the most expensive solid body electric of the day. Back when a solid body guitar was new high tech and had only been made for seven short years. This is from the estate of the original owner and is 100% original. Shows no cracks or wear. The original frets are in great condition. Has the original knobs, guard, strap buttons, tuners and nut....

1956 Fender Stratocaster

Vintage White, refinished long ago, a very good job. The volume pot was changed and a five way switch added in the 70’s. The pickguard is original. The original bakelite pickup covers are worn through and in the case. The current repro covers appear to be bakelite as well. Your friends won’t be able to tell. The finish on the neck is original mostly worn away. It has a V neck that softens about...

2021 Marshall SVC20

1x10” combo in black, very clean and original condition. Designed to replicate the sound of the “plexi” 100-watt Model 1959 of the late ‘60s, but in a portable package and at sensible volumes. A pair of cathode-biased EL34s driving a Celestion V-Type 10” speaker, classic Marshall 4-input control panel with two volumes (“Normal Loudness 2” and “High Treble Loudness 1” for maximum canonical...

1967 Gibson ES-345TDC

Cherry, VG++. Listen to us, this guitar is smokin’ hot! An added stoptail and a refret have done nothing but made this a fast action fantasy guitar. We are big fans of Elvin Bishop ( Paul Butterfield Blues band and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee) who had a ’59 ES-345 stoptail. This guitar is one of those one strum and love guitars. The original Patent Sticker pickups have a crisp articulate...

1960 Fender Jazzmaster

Two Tone Sunburst, VG+ We got this from the family of the original owner. It was a Three Tone Sunburst but like many of the ’59-’60 guitars the red was made of an Aniline dye that faded in the sunlight. We are told from the owner it has ’59 pots but no neck date, typical of 1960 guitars. However, these large pickguards shrink and are best left alone. A photo is worth a thousand words. But, ...

2014 Gretsch 6119 Tennessee Rose

Dark Cherry Red, with added TV Jones Filterton pickups and a Gibson Tune-a-matic bridge. A killer stage guitar because it sounds great (thank you TV Jones). Shows a few scratches here and there as expected from a ten year old guitar but no abuse. Comes with the original hard case.

2024 Bergantino Forté D

*carry bag not included but available “Plug and play never sounded so good!” Taking all that made the original, award-winning Forté D bass amplifier such a widely accepted tone champion, Jim Bergantino has taken it up another notch by implementing his all new Big Fat Tube II (BFT) circuit. The BFT II circuit delivers exactly what bass players crave out of tube amplifiers, but in an easy to...

1954 Gibson J-45

VG+++, small pickguard era. We love early J-45 models. Like the Fender Strat it is/was hugely popular and now an icon. The warm bass, long sustain, and crisp upper midrange never gets old. As you know, small-pickguard J-45s up to 1956 had thinner braces and generally sound better. True here, this one is a cannon. Now it’s back from our shop. You’ll remember we send almost all used acoustics and...

2023 Fender American Vintage II Thinline Telecaster

Like new!. Aged Natural on semi-hollow Ash body, gloss poly finish, a fantastic reissue of the second iteration of the Thinline Telecaster featuring Seth Lover-designed “Wide-Range” humbucking pickups. Maple neck and fingerboard with a vintage-correct 7.25” radius, and a comfortable “C” neck profile. This example has a lovely grain pattern and is nice and light. Comes with its factory hard case,...

2022 Fender American Professional II Stratocaster

Natural on Roasted Pine body, super light at 7.4 pounds, a mint used condition, sounds great with V Mod II pickups and a Push/Push tone knob that adds the neck pickup in any position, also a comfy Deep C neck profile with satin finish which feels great. The new contoured heel adds comfort and versatility too. You’re going to love this new American Strat! Comes with a new deluxe hard case.

1973 Fender Telecaster

One of the more interesting Teles we’ve had lately. This one with a professional Red overspray over the original blonde finish. Also has one changed pot. Oh and we refretted it. You’re welcome! Weight is 7.6 pounds and it has the resonance of an old soul. The original bridge pickup measures 5.89K and the neck is 6.26K for a well balanced Tele twang. These early 70’s Tele pickups have a nice thump...

1969 Gibson L-5CES

Sunburst, EX-. First, finding a nice Gibson L-5 is rare. They made almost a thousand Les Pauls for every L-5. Gibson does not currently offer the legendary L-5CES because you need to find someone with the skill to hand carve, tap tuning as you remove just the right amount of wood by hand. That same person needs to deal with being in a corporation. Artists don’t do well with ivory tower top down...

1986 Fender '57 Reissue Stratocaster

Two Tone Sunburst, VG/EX, this is worn out like a real ’67 year old Strat (that’s why its a VG rate) yet we refretted it (you’re welcome and that’s where the EX rate is). This is an early example of Fenders vintage reissues. They kinda came awake with the reissues by offering this model in 1982. These reissues are kinda iconic. Fresh frets on a maple neck Strat? Fuggeta bout it. Great...

1951 Martin 00-28G

Natural, the G stands for Gut strings. Otherwise, this is appointed like any 28-level Martin from this period. Sitka Spruce top with six layers of top binding and a three-ring rosette, Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. The 28G is fan-braced with a tie on bridge. This one has elegant book-matched Brazilian Rosewood back and sides with nice-looking grain. The neck is Honduran Mahogany and the...

1964 Gibson J-50

EX. Extremely scarce in natural finish over black back, sides, and neck. Very striking and very, very, rare. We doubt you'd even find a photo of such (if so tell us). This has been in owner Willie’s personal collection. First, as a 1964 it has the pre-1965 feature of the larger 1 & 11/16” nut width. Second, it sounds really great. Full yet crisp like so many classic recordings, with that great...

2024 Nash S-81

Lightweight alder body in Yellow Taxi (7.75 pounds overall), medium aging, maple fingerboard with 25.5” scale length, 1 & 5/8” nut width, 10” radius, 6105 fret wire, and of course a set of DiMarzio pickups including a zebra Air Norton in the bridge position. Speaking of the bridge, it’s an excellent Gotoh-made licensed Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo in black to match the pickguard and...

2024 Magnatone Twilighter

1x12” combo in Traditional Brown tolex with wheat grille and  gold Magnatone chevron badge. 22 watts from a 2x6V6 output section, 4 12AX7s and a 12AU7 in the preamp, GZ34 tube rectifier, tube-driven spring reverb, and a custom-voiced ceramic-magnet 12” speaker. So far so good, a very balanced and articulate amp, but the real star of the show is Magnate’s legendary pitch-shifting varistor vibrato...
