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 Epiphone Crestwood Custom

$5,950
Pacific Blue is by far one of the rarest of colors for the Epiphone / Gibson 1960s custom orders. This is an early 1965 Crestwood Custom (363XXX) .... witnessed by the still nickel hardware that changes later that year (to chrome) is still there!  These guitars ares SO light and sonic that with the mahogany body and early Pat # mini humbuckers are very much a reminder tonally of a 60s Firebird!...

1978 Gibson style L-5 CESN Conversion

$3,495
A Werewolf in Wolf's Clothing ..... THE TRUE CONVERT! What we have here is a custom order made for a customer and friend of my friend and So West luthier/craftsman/builder Gil Chavez. A very pained effort to make a stunning reproduction. It started life as an already collectible arch top that as an import commands up to $3k in it's original form. It was a totally acoustic 1978 Ibanez Johnny...

1943 Martin 000-28 HERRINGBONE

$19,500
SCALLOPED BRACED GEM FROM MARTIN'S GOLDEN ERA .. STUNNING BRAZILIAN!!When i grew up playing in the 1960s my go to guitar was always a Martin D-28 but as i got older ... started writing and got in the studios i realized that the absolute most balanced voiced acoustic guitar for me was and STILL is the 000-28 with Brazilian sides and back (or any Brazilian 000 model 21-45) . This 1943 (842XX)...

1967 Epiphone Riviera

$4,995
In the early 1960s Epiphone echoed the sentiments of the excitement of the new concept of semi hollow bodies with their addition to the market and sister "drug" to the ES335 by mother company Gibson. These lovely little beasts sound like a great 335 but with a little extra edge provided by the newly introduced mini humbucker. This 1967 plays and sounds amazing. The varying colors you see on the...

1989 Fender Stratocaster

$2,495
80s is the New Vintage!!! So many of these 1980s guitars actually surpass the guitars of the 1970s (even though there are MANY cool 70s axes) that they are becoming the new frontier. This nice light 1989 Surf Green 80s USA '57 reissue weighs in at just 8 lbs 1 oz. It is 100% original and sounds just amazing. With that 1957 V profile and orig frets in almost brand new condition this beauty is...

** UPDATE. ORIG STYLE SADDLE EN ROUTE. If you have ever heard Ry Cooder, David Lindley, Greg Leisz or Ben Harper play one of these 1920s-30s Lap Hawaiians made by Hermann Weissenborn then you already know how magical they sound. The 1st time i heard one was when Greg Leisz was doing my 3 CDs with him. Mine and the producer's jaws dropped. I have since been a hub and collector.lover and player...

2019 Fender Jaguar Custom Shop

$3,250
These newer Custom shop and custom color Jaguars are just off the hook. Both their playing and beauty / appearance really nail it!! Ocean Turquoise Metallic has always been a fave of mine with just a hint more green than Lake Placid. This guitar came to me from a friend and new owner who bought what seems to be 1 in every color but this Ocean Turquoise "Journeyman" Jag is the one i wanted to...

1988 Fender Stratocaster AVRI Mary Kaye

$2,495
While these were sold by Fender Corona as a special line of their '62 Reissues in reality the combination of a Rosewood board and see through blond over highly grained ash with gold parts ... aka a "Mary Kaye" was ONLY originally produced in late 1959 early 1960 so it should be called a '59 Mary Kaye. The model got it's name when Fender endorsee Mary Kaye (see pic) chose this combination and...

1953 Martin 0-18

$2,795
To me there is nothing like the sound of a small body Martin with that focus for the studio and yet that big open voice you don't often find in small body guitars from that era or since .... that also make it a loud performance instrument as well . Think about it B-25 vs 0-18? This guitar is from 1953 and came from a friend who unearthed it from the o.g. owner. Spruce top, Honduran mahogany S+B,...

2003 GIBSON Brazilian R9 Les Paul

$10,500
I started buying and selling vintage guitars in the mid to late 1970s and over the years was lucky enough to own a few original 1959 Bursts and several 50s conversions w/ PAFs and hand builds that were all intended to sound like just that .. a burst!! When you ask owners or builders what sets apart the originals several items will come up like Hide glue, or old growth Honduran mahogany BUT...

1956 GIBSON CF 100

$4,495
Gibson CF100!! One of my favorite guitars made. It fascinated me to watch my friend Mark Turnbull play one of these for years. The perfect combo of a beautifully voiced flat top with the VERY early use of a cutaway on a flat top acoustic. This one as you can see in the pics bares some signs of having been very loved and played. But it seems to be all original. I say appears because one back brace...

1970 GIBSON ES335TDC

$4,995
The last bastion of the ORANGE labels!! This very early 1970 ES335TDC is the exactly the same guitar as it's 1966-68 predecessor with the exception of the USA and volute and the 3 pc neck. Still has an orange label and a serial # from the end 60s code style with a 928573 # instead of the new code of 1970 that started over again in the 100,000s that came with the later multi colored inner label....

1956 GIBSON Les Paul Junior

Les Paul Juniors seem to really be taking off again after a good stall in the market post 2008 they're booming. AND ... why not!! Simply the ballsiest little monsters out there!! They were the last thing to soar prior .... and 1st thing to drop after Oct 2008 BUT man are they on the rise again!! You can spend 4-5 grand for a custom shop new one but why?? Here it is. The real deal and 60% the...

1972 Fender Stratocaster Hard tail

$3,850
Very 1960s vibe ... between the lighter weight and the staggered pole pick ups being leftover bastiens of that earlier era. While a hard tail or non trem Strat is not for every guy ... if you are looking for a great sounding guitar ... here it is!! Pot dates all date to 1972 (1 meg) and this guitar as unusual as it is for October of 1972 it actually HAS a neck date in black ink and no mysterious...

1965 Gibson EB-0

$1,995
What we have here is a very vibrant unfaded Cherry red early 1965 Gibson EB-0. Excellent original condition with that big warm mudbucker sound that fills any track with fullness and stays out of the way of any other instruments. Most are pretty faded by this time. Has the nice wide nut and all 64 features including all nickel parts and comes with the o.g. soft case!!

1965 Epiphone Wilshire

$3,495
The Epiphone Wilshire (and Crestwood) as far as i am concerned is a workingman's Firebird. With an all mahogany body and those early mini humbuckers the only thing that differs is the body shape. With a texture all of it'sown (sonic) they are an amazing vintage guitar at a very affordable price. Honduran mahogany body, Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard and a guitar made when hide glue wa the way to...

1970 Fender Stratocaster

$14,995
The late 60s and early 1970s found a very large surge in attention to the Fender Stratocaster. A guitar that was slated to be discontinued in 1967 until this left handed guy that wasn't playing surf music on one showed up in psychedelic clothes at places like Monterey. Of the later 60s and early 70s 4 bolt Strats one color comes to mind IS Olympic White. And while most pics we see of JIMI are...

1968 GIBSON B-25 Custom color Cherry

$4,495
Gibson's small body acoustic lineage is something most of us are familiar with because they were relatively affordable therefore making them popular. Starting with the entry level all mahogany LG-0 and working it's way up the LG-1, 2 and 3 series.Mid 60s would find a new name that would encompass the LG-1s, 2's and 3's and wrapped them up into the model B-25.What sets this one aside is that you...

1969 GIBSON LES PAUL STANDARD

It is a rarity anymore to find late 60s Gold Tops especially 1 piece body P-90 models. Pre Norlin!! No volute ... no Made in USA!! This particular example comes from the era most 60s gold top enthusiasts call the "Middle era" although this is from the very earliest part of that category. "Early" category means 1 piece body, 1 piece neck and mostly small head stocks BUT the change to large head...

1970 Fender Stratocaster

The two hardest year Strats to find are 1967 and 1970 Hendrix era because the production #s were very low. This 1970 is 100% original in AMAZING condition. You rarely ever see them this clean!! Even the case is almost a museum piece! Pick up codes are 3170 neck code shows 1970, pots are 1970 (1966 which is what they stocked up with from 1966-1970-71) and ALL solder joints are orig!!

1964 Epiphone Coronet

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...

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...
