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.

1967 Epiphone Casino

$4,740
This beautiful 1967 Casino is in remarkably clean condition and if not for the weather checking would fit very neatly into the near mint to mint categories. The Cherry is as vibrant as when it left the factory and the mahogany is just gorgeous!! What is ALSO a stand out is that for some reason of the slightly narrower fingerboard late 60s feel often 1967s will have more mass and meat to them so...

1964 Epiphone Coronet

$3,450
The Epiphone Coronet was their answer to the late 1950s Gibson Les Paul Jr. and while one would think ..they were the same company why compete ... that is what they did across the board. The Riviera vs the ES335 etc ... This 1964 Coronet # 196XXX is 100% original and the last year for all nickel hardware and comes in the rare Silver Fox finish. While Silver Fox was initially offered as 1 of 3...

1964 Gibson J-45

$4,350
Just a beautiful example of an early 1960s wide fingerboard J-45 with all of the best features of that era. Wooden bridge as opposed to the simulated wood or plastic so often found on this model era. The 1+11/16 wide neck and in near mint condition. Just a stunner and as lovely sounding with that BIG boom as it looks and pix don't do it justice. 100% original right out of the gate. Perfect neck...

1964 Epiphone Crestwood Custom

$5,995
It is rare even after 40+ years in this biz when one stumbles upon an Epiphone Crestwood guitar. It is also rare when you do, that it has the trem arm and the nickel bridge hasn't been robbed. Even rarer yet (is this getting old yet?) is that this model with the bat wing head stock doesn't show up in books until 1965 but this is mos def a 1964 with serial # 241XXX. What is REALLY rare is when all...

1974 Gibson LES PAUL CUSTOM

$6,495
Attention Randy Rhoads and Dave Grohl enthusiasts!! Alpine White is a color that when combined with an earlier 70s mahogany neck becomes a very desirable combination for a number of reasons. 1st is that the color was only available with a mahogany neck for a little over a year 1974 and into 1975 while transitioning to maple necks. 2nd is that for guys who are fans of Randy Rhoads it is his most...

1973 Fender Telecaster

What we have here is a great sounding guitar composed of actually 2 early 1970s Telecasters (back plate serial # 372XXX).

In front i wanted to thank Steve Soest for his valued...

I love it when this happens! 2 on the same day!! This wonderfully 100% original June 1966 Fender Jaguar is such a pleasure to play. Fast ass neck. Not to bulky and great sounding pick ups.

1964 Fender Jaguar

I had a nice thing happen today. Oddly over 40 years it happens a lot more than one might think where 2 of the same model show up. This April 1964 Jaguar is a superbly clean and original example down to the solder joints and blond case. Weighs in at 8 lbs 7 oz's and just wails! Bares an L 35XXX serial # and a beautiful Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. What a lot of folks don't know is that the...

1973 Guild Manhattan X-175

The Guild Manhattan X-175 is a wonderful arch top and doesn't take a stretch of the imagination to guess it was their answer to the Gibson ES-175.

Just set up and ready to go with a set of D'Addario flat wound .012s the action is...

Beautiful example of a 1971 Guild Starfire IV in a gorgeous mahogany finish with the most amazing Ribbon grain mahogany i have ever seen.

1957 Martin 000-21

$8,500
The 000 size Martin with Rosewood sides and back is my favorite of all acoustic guitars with a balance that is unmatched by any other style in my opinion. Man ... i get lost in the Brazilian rosewood's grain the same way one loses their focus while watching the flames crackle from a good camp fire. I have been playing the same 1957 000-28 for 3 decades and i wouldn't trade it for the world! This...

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...

1974 Fender Stratocaster 18 % off
PRICE REDUCED! 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...
