Pay Pal, Cash, Personal Check, Money Order/Cashier's check, Wire transfers or Western Union. Pay Pal and wire transfers are offered as a convenience for far away buyers and all extra expenses are the customer's responsibilty. Unless i price my guitars up with some of the really big dealers theres not enough profit in Vintage guitars to pay out 3.9% additional. If you need to pay with a credit card there is still a way though i don't take them directly .... and that is that Pay Pal will take the card and pay me through normal services. Any time that a deposit is taken for any special arrangements or "holds" it is non refundable. To have these rules work in your favor all transactions need to be completed or deposited on w/in 5 days.

Buyer pays shipping. Shipping will be determined on a case by case basis so as to include size, weight, distance, insured amount and method requested. Shipping is paid by customer both ways on any returns.

All parties buying through the mail or offsite are allowed a 48 hour approval/inspection period on ALL guitars, unless discussed otherwise, to make sure they are keeping their purchase (but not amps to keep shipping delicate amps back and forth to a minimum and not on parts either ... too many guys doing "switcharoo's" or wrecking them trying to install them, break them and then trying to send them back ... sorry ... you have to reap the behavior of so many others). Buyer pays shipping. Payments must be received within 5 working days of anything placed on HOLD. When you receive the guitar your 48 hour return includes 2 days to receive it and approve or not and you MUST contact me. WE DO STRICTLY adhere to these rules. I don't mean to sound tough here but you would be amazed at the liberties taken in recent past! Thanks for your understanding and adherence. If an instument is put on hold and any special arraingements have been made like a deposit and hold followed up by another payment that is considerd a sold instrument since it has been taken off of the market for other possible buyers. Its not fair to us to hold it off the market and then decide against it so make sure to ask ALL questions and we will be thrilled to give you an in hands description. The same poicy holds true if you have us change the guitar (like "set it up for left handed etc ...). If that kind of work is done thats on an instrument that is a done deal also. Thanks. ALL Outside the USA sales are FINAL due to extended "visits" through customs and some countries laxed attitude about shipping on time.

1965 Fender® Princeton® Reverb

$2,450
Man ... remember when everyone in the 70s and 80s wanted 80 and 100 watt amps? Whether a clean Twin or a dirty Boogie ... Times have changed and everyone's faves are now small combo amps. Seen here is a mid 1965 early Fender Musical Instruments 1965 black face Princeton Reverb all orig with a Jensen from late 64 which makes sense. These amps are so warm and so versatile that as you'll see in the...

1965 Fender® Stratocaster®

$8,495
In 1970 Eric Clapton went to Nashville where he proceeded to buy 6 Pre Cbs Strats. He gave 1 to Stevie Winwood, 1 to George Harrison and 1 to Pete Townshend. From the least 3 (1956 and 1957) he picked the best of all the necks bodies (black refin) and electronics and had them assembled by Luthier Ted Newman and thus BLACKIE was born. This Daphne Blue Refin Strat is a little like Dr. Frankenstein...

1978 Fender® Telecaster® Deluxe

$2,995
To guitar nuts around the world the name Seth Lover is iconic. His inventing the humbucking pick up in the mid 50s that showed up in the form of the Gibson Patent Applied For was really earth shattering to the sound of the modern electric guitar. Well ... when Fender decided that they wanted some humbucking guitars in the early 70s guess who they went to. It was a No Brainer. Lover being THE GUY...

~1918 Weissenborn Style 1 (early paper label)

$2,995
Early style 1 CRACK FREE Weissenborn guitar. Nice moderately flamed Koa. These hollow neck Hawaiians are such tone filled beauties. This particular one i am sure has a past. If you look closely there is a small lightly etched insignia from The U.S. Army Air Corps flight school graduates below the bridge (see last 2 pics). "Where you been boy" The Hawaiian Army News is looking into it's history as...

1976 Fender® Jazz Bass®

$2,795
Early 1976 (still has a back plate serial # ) Jazz Bass in all original condition. Nice and light at just under or at 8 lbs. The Jazz Bass is an iconic sound that has been a part of popular music since it's inception in 1960 and then hit a whole new stride with the onset of R+B, Funk and fusion and players like Jaco Pastorius (RIP). This 1976 has it all and an earlier vibe to the sunburst as...

CIRCA 1969-71 Guild Slim Jim T-100 D. D is for Double pick up.These guitars look like they would sound "skinny" but they are so large and rich with tone.

1974 Fender® Stratocaster®

$4,800
Translucent or "see through" blond is a very hip color because after 1956 it is the only Strat you can order and get a traditional Ash body. 1974 is about the last time you see this until later reissues. Look at the ash grain show through on the pick guard off shot. Not to be mistaken by Olympic White since both are often called "blond or cream." This 1974 is 100% original down to the frets and...

~1924 Weissenborn Style 3

Call
ON HOLD!!! Another scorchingly beautiful flamed Koa Weissenborn and this one is a Rope Bound Style 3. Although style 4s were the top of the food chain with rope binding on the back as well, style 3s are by far the rarest of all the Weiissenborn hour glass styles. For now ... this one is at home in my collection but it JUST came in and where it winds up ... we'll see. Meanwhile look at how elegant...

1968 Gibson ES-335TDC

$4,995
1968 ES335TDC in stock. All original and sings. Semi hollows are my favorite. You can play anything on a great ES335. This guitars is all solidly Pre Norlin. No USA stamp or volute one piece neck and patent # T-tops for that great 60s sound. There is some lacquer chipping around the logo making it less clear which is why we didn't price it up at $6500 or 7k like the others available but all...

1966 Martin 000-18

$3,950
000 size Martins are my favorite design in an acoustic ... having owned a 50s 000-28 for over 20 years myself. This 1966 000-18 is crack free with the exception of a barely notable pickguard stress crack (cleted immediately so it never grew apart) and in REALLY clean condition with that big warm but well focused voice that makes these gems so special!! The action is currently BELOW factory specs...

1965 Epiphone Crestwood Custom

$3,850
Even with 40 years in the vintage guitar biz i wasn't really hip to how great these Epi mini humbucker guitars really are. This Crestwood Custom is REALLY fun to play and of course ... how do you go wrong with a 60s Mahogany ax made by Gibson with double coil pick ups!! Although the neck falls into the 1 + 5/8 width it feels reminiscent of the wider board and maybe because the rest of the...

1966 Fender® Jazz Bass®

$10,750
When Leo Fender sold Fender "electrical" Instruments to CBS in early 1965 they didn't start making any changes until late 65 into 1966.

1959 Gretsch® Anniversary

Man ... I love this guitar. Just arrived in it's original case and in amazing condition. If it weren't for a little area of play wear along the treble side of the neck i would have classified it as "near mint". What's so very cool about the earliest models from 58 and 9 is that unlike the later 1960 and on this not only has the double coil Filtertron but ALSO it's a very early Patent Applied For...
