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.

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
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 identifiable guitar. 3rd is it just looks so cool!!...

1973 Fender Telecaster

$3,250
What we have here is a great sounding guitar composed of actually 2 early 1970s Telecasters (back plate serial # 372XXX). The body and electronics are original 1973 and appears that the solder joints have never been broken or out on entire harness which dates by the (1 meg) pot code to the 49th week of 1973 ... the latest date in the guitar. In front i wanted to thank Steve Soest for his valued...

1966 Fender Jaguar

$3,995
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. Jag pups are the strongest sounding of all Fender single coils. This beauty bares the serial # 158XXX . and a gorgeously figured Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. It weighs in at just a hair over 8lbs at 8 lbs...

1964 Fender Jaguar

$4,750
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

$2,150
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. This example is from 1973 and in excellent 100% original condition! Sporting 2 of Guild's hurmbucking pick ups and a single soft cutaway it is a wonderful Jazz guitar. Just set up and ready to go with a set of D'Addario flat wound .012s the action is...

1971 Guild Starfire IV

$2,995
Beautiful example of a 1971 Guild Starfire IV in a gorgeous mahogany finish with the most amazing Ribbon grain mahogany i have ever seen. These guitars are a wonderful semi hollow body with nice powerful humbucking pick ups that resemble Gibson's but with a little more "jingle" in their sound. This one is 100% original and extremely clean with the exception of a very few minor dings in just...

~1918 Weissenborn style 2 (Wurlitzer label)

$2,650
Those who know me or of me and my Weissenborn addiction know that i am also pretty much a purist on them which is why when this early thin body (2+1/4") walked in to a guitar show with the sign "restored with new bracing ... even better that the originals" i laughed. THEN ... i heard it and after taking my "stuffy" stance i had to digress. I wish i KNEW who did the work because it is one of the...

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...

1955 Gibson Les Paul TV Jr.

$9,995
Wow. I can't say enough about this one except i would keep it if i could!! No Sh_t!! Another remarkably clean and very original Les Paul . Just in ... this superb example of a 1955 Les Paul TV. Unlike many ... this early model retains the limed mahogany look and much less of the later "banana" hue and if not for a smidgeon of light arm/edge wear and a couple of dings it gives off the impression...

1967 Gibson EB-2

$2,495
The Gibson EB-2 is probably the warmest sounding bass of all time. With that big swooning voice so full. This 1967 is 100% original and even comes with the o.g. case. Two pots ...volume and tone as usual but these also have a push button bass boost built in and all working like day 1. In very nice condition and a neck as straight as they come this guitar is 100% and ready to play. Comes with the...

$4,895
WE HAVE ALL HEARD OR PROFESSED THE ONE ABOUT WHAT 1 GUITAR ... WE WOULD KEEP IF WE WERE ON A DESERTED ISLAND?? For myself that one would be an ES335TDC semi hollow. That solid block and hollow wings make for probably the most versatile guitar ever.Thank you Ted McCarty!! I have always owned one and never am w/out. Here is a completely original model right on the cusp of late 1968 and early 1969....

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...

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. I don't think you'll find one much cleaner and the 2 pick ups are indeed harder to find!! Great playing neck and comes with the original hard shell case.

Near mint Brown 1962 Princeton amp. You can eat off of this baby ... it's SO clean and orig and NO EXCUSES!! (with the exception of what is probably a reissue handle but the amp is so clean it may just be the real one.). What a little screamer. Crank it and it sounds like a Mesa Boogie. 100% original. Speaker is an oxford from the 14th week of 1962. (465 214). The Tube Chart reads LH Aug 1962....

1974 Fender Stratocaster

$4,250
1974 Fender Stratocaster 11 % off
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...

1966 Martin 000-18

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...

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...
