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.

1955 GIBSON Les Paul TV

$6,495
Les Paul TV model contrary to the pop culture myth was NOT invented to throw off glare but merely because Les and Mary intro'd it ON THEIR SHOW. "Les Paul did not choose limed mahogany to avoid the glare of TV cameras but because at the time, in 1955, limed mahogany was considered modern. But he called the guitar the Les Paul TV Model because he introduced it on The Les Paul & Mary Ford Show...

1960 GUILD Freshman M-65 3/4

$1,995
Guild Freshman M-65 3/4 is the little brother to the M-75 Aristocrat or Blues bird. They are mighty loud and warm guitars. Don't let their size fool you (credit "The Munchkins") This example is 100% original, in just a GORGEOUS amber sunburst and bares by FAR the most desirable Franz single coil pick up made in Astoria, Queens, NY. Just barely post this era they go to a much less desirable...

Just in. Very early Musicmaster Bass. These were available from sometime in 1970-about 1981. This example is early ... from May of 1971 baring the earlier white guard and very light and sonic!! All original parts (sans thumb rest). You'd even think the flat wounds on it are too. :-) NOW BEARS A BRAND NEW SET OF ERNIE BALLS!!

~1984 Fender Stratocaster MIJ "E" SERIES

$1,495
THE MOST desired of the Made In Japan Fenders were made in the Fuji Gen plant as is this "E" series strat.in the early-mid 1980s. It bears an E and 6 digits which can be narrowed down to 1984-87 (barely visible in head stock pix).

1972 Fender Telecaster

$4,250
This 1972 Fender Telecaster sets a couple of records for the LATEST leftover 60s features found on a 1970s guitar. December of 1972 is THE latest neck date i have ever sen stamped during the early 70s transitional period.

1949 GIBSON L4CN (1st year)

$4,995
The very 1st year of production for an L4C or L4CN. These guitars are a working mans way of owning a carved solid spruce topped arch top guitar. 16" wide solid spruce top and the size of an ES175TD but acoustic whereas the 175 had a laminated top (and 2 P-90s of course).

1964 GIBSON SG Special

$6,750
Holy cow this guitar plays like absoluter butter!!!!! To me Gibson electrics from the early 60s have the best feel. Though this Special is right on the cusp of 1964 and 5 (250XXX .... 1+11/16)) when you pick it up you'd SWEAR it was a mid 1962! Not quite as flat in back as a 60-61 ... just a little more meat making it a much easier guitar to play in tune since the 61s change of you breath on...

1988 Fender Stratocaster AVRI Mary Kaye

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...

It says "On Hold" but it is not for sale.
