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 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...

1958 Fender Deluxe 5E3

$2,795
SOLD As i have said more than once ... I have been buying, collecting and playing vintage guitars since the mid 1970s and one fact that became obvious almost immediately was that if you want to hear your guitar at it's BEST ... in it's truest sense of the intention of it's maker and tone PLAY IT THROUGH A 5E3 NARROW PANEL DELUXE!!!! I have had a nice run of these recently and this 1958 is likely...

1950 GIBSON GA-20

$799
The late 1940s and early 1950s saw the introduction of production model electric and great guitars ... and what is an electric w/out an amp?? So Gibson and Fender and many companies began production of accompanying amps! This little Gibson GA-20 is a VERY early example but there is nothing primitive about it's warmth and tone!! This little GA-20 is a wonderful littler studio amp and small gig...

1974 GIBSON Les Paul Custom

$5,995
NEAR MINT.  This is likely the best 70s LP Custom i have had come through in over 4 decades. I NEVER say Mint because someone will always find a spot where someone's breath hit the guitar but this Les Paul Custom is as NEAR mint as it gets!! I can only find one ... count it ... one nick (see pics near end). This very early 1974 Black Beauty has ALL the coolest specs for this era.  1st week of...

1956 Rickenbacker DW 1956 NAMM example

$2,995
Amazingly clean ... near mint Rickenbacker DW Dual 8 Steel Guitar!! According to John Hall Sr.when shown this guitar in the 1980s at that years NAMM Rickenbacker made this steel to go along with a ONE year only display that was centered around a white and blue theme! The 1956 NAMM show! This model always has 2 black fingerboards BUT this one has the "one off" blue boards. With TWO ... count...

1994 Fender '57 R.I. Stratocaster

$995
It is no secret by now that some of the best production line Fender Stratocasters from the 1980s and 1990s were their Made In Japan series guitars. The '57 reissues in my opinion actually had a more accurate feel as well. With the deep V like a 57 (and seemingly deeper than the same era USA models) I own a 1957 original and before that a 1956 and this one feels VERY much like both. Pick ups pots...

1970 Fender Stratocaster

$15,500
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...

1962 GIBSON J-45

$3,250
"SINGLE RING" SOUNDHOLE ROSETTES ENDED IN EARLY 1962 AND SET THESE J-45S ASIDE FROM THE LATER WITH CONCENTRIC SOUND HOLE CIRCLE ROSETTES AND ARE OFTEN THOUGHT TO SOUND VERY MUCH LIKE THE 1950S MODELS. LOOK AT THAT BEAUTIFUL BRAZILIAN BOARD!!!  THIS BOOMING BEAST IS NO EXCEPTION. WITH AN EARLY 1962 5 DIGIT SERIAL # THIS IS LIKELY ONE OF THE LAST OF THAT FEATURE. THIS ONE FALLS BETWEEN PLAYING AND...

1969 GIBSON LES PAUL STANDARD

$12,995
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...

1964 Rickenbacker ROSE MORRIS 345K (aka 1998)

$6,995
AKA model 1998 ... If you are looking at a 1964 Rose Morris Rickenbacker that means you are looking at one designed for and probably bought at THE same store that the Beatles and the Who got their Rics from and the year the Fab 4 broke here on Ed Sullivan. Notice the very 1st dead giveaway of the F-holes instead of the Ric USA models with the slash hole. The shop thought the slash holes would be...

1974 Gibson Les Paul Custom 20th Anniversary

1954 saw the introduction of the sexy Les Paul Custom. Look at the gorgeous flamey patch (see close ups of top) on the top bass side!! **Also notice that unlike most customs ... the gold plating is  original and in really nice condition! This 20th Anniversary is among the last bastion of mahogany neck Les Pauls until the later reissues .... in the early 70s This 1974 Les Paul Custom still has...

1970 Fender Stratocaster

$9,750
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!! The underside...

1972 Fender Stratocaster

$3,995
This guitar really reminds me of a 1960s 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...

1967 Epiphone Casino

$4,995
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...

1962 Gibson SG TV (Junior)

$5,995
What we have here is an SG TV 1962. Though we are used to the TV name being lent to the limed mahogany finish it was also the model name for Polaris white until the SG Junior name was applied mid 1963. This is.the most desirable incarnation of this Les Paul era SG Junior in Polaris White with a stop tail only and 100% original!! No trems ... no removed stuff ... and the best sustaining and...

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...

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...
