Vintage 1949 Fender Champion Lap Guitar from the First Run
Serial Number 133
33rd One Ever Made
For your consideration is this 1949 Fender Champion Lap Guitar from the first batch ever made. Note the machined input jack cup, and the control knobs which are pre-dometop. The pickup is original and it looks like 90% of a Broadcaster pickup. Built the same, but with no bottom plate, and a...
The house brand of Sonny Shields Music in East St. Louis IL and the famous choice of Steve Marriot during his Humble Pie year. This is an ultra clean one. One of the best of Gibson's Juniors, the Dwight with the 3 on a side headstocks are rare with a run of about 160. I will include an amp with this one, An Epiphany Devon from 62 with a Dwight logo. The original set! Go find another. Don't miss...
Here is an early Coronet like the ones I am so fond of. It has a replaced black pick guard ala Steve Marriot. It also had is stop tail piece mounted lower to allow a hollow body type bridge arrangement. We have removed all of this non-sense and put its stop tail back to where it belonged. We also blocked and painted the holes where it had been moved too. We did this about 7 years ago. I've had it...
Here is a refinished and referred Rickenbacker 650. It has newer pots and wiring and newer Rick pick-ups. Very nice job. Also it has a vintage Rickenbacker plastic logo instead of its original metal logo. Newer Rickenbacker Bridge also. It has a real nice vibe and plays great with no issues.
Here is another amp we just received and serviced like we always do here at Acme. So you don't have to! It will be local pick-up only. It's the 100 watt version of the B15 with an extension cabinet. The speakers are Electro Voice as the originals are just too woefully inadequate.
Here is a recent acquisition, a Marshall 2204 from 1983. Serviced with a fresh set of JJ EL34's this is one rocking amp. No issues as we have completely gone over it here at Acme, the best little guitar shop in the midwest.
Circa 1972 Gibson "The Ripper" Bass plays and sounds amazing. Very light weight and resonant with warm, thumpy tone. All original except for changed pickups and electronics, still sounds fantastic though.
A RARE Echodrive from SIB Effects.

A sweet vintage 1967 Gibson LG-0 acoustic guitar. Plays and sounds great! The neck angle is excellent on this one and the action is nice and low. The tone is very rich and warm. Perfect for gigging or just having around the house! Comes with soft case.
Talk about a stunner! This is a Knaggs Severn T3 HSS with striking, custom visual appointments. The metallic gold top and gold hardware absolutely pops as it catches the light, juxtaposed against the rich, ebony gloss of the body! With the figured Hard Rock maple neck offsetting the sleek and sexy contours of the body, we just couldn't resist. Not to mention the tone - it absolutely oozes chimey,...
