2008 Gibson Custom Shop Explorer, '58 RI, 1- Off

$7,495
Everybody knows that when the 35+ Allen Collins Explorers hit the market in 2003, they were $11,000.00 and only went up from there. We've had two in the last 14 years and both were strong performers. The rarity and coolness factors were definitely in effect and I'm sure both are tucked away in private collections, safe and sound. That said, when we first saw this guitar, its uniqueness was...

1980 KRAMER XL-8

$1,595
Of all the basses I wanted back in the late 80's, the four- string version of this bass was the one I couldn't have. It was the classic situation where I already had two "round" basses (a '72 Fender Jazz and a '87 Spector NS-2) and my Pop, who was my official financier at the time didn't think a pointy bass was necessary. I tried, to no avail to explain to him that everybody that was in a serious...

1964 Supro Super Model 1606

$649
It's blue, it's true and it's got 5 watts of what you gonna do? This amp isn't weighted down in excess, of course- we couldn't be bothered. No, this little Supro is simply plug and play. Let's think about this: Wouldn't you agree Kieth Richards could afford to buy the state of Alabama, or at least the city of Birmingham? With that logic in mind and if you're astute, you noticed a vintage model...

1994 Fender® Custom Shop Jerry Donahue Telecaster®

$2,395
After defeating Eddie Alvarez, Connor McGregor, in the post fight interview uttered these words: "This is what I dreamed into reality." If you stop and think about it for a minute, that's some really deep stuff. This is what I dreamed into reality. That man took a thought and made it happen for real in his life and I'm quite sure it took a metric ton of conviction to do it, so I will now apply...

1996 Ibanez Iceman, PS-10 Classic

$2,495
I was talking to somebody backstage before, and they were telling me there's a lot of you people that like to drink vodka and orange juice. If you don't have any idea where that came from, please, and I mean please go now and listen to a Donna Summers album or something. What I speak of is maybe the best rap in all bands existences, period. I'm quite sure that, in a loft on 10 East 23rd...

1972 Marshall JMP Bass 50- Watt

$2,695
"For God's sake, let us sit upon the ground and tell sad stories of the death of Kings." This quote is courtesy of Shakespeare's Richard II, Act 3, Scene 2. Pretrial, what brings such thoughts to mind? September 18th, 1970 and the death of a legend. If you are astute, then naturally you know this date and if you were alive, you know where you were when you heard the news and you'll always...

2000 Paul Reed Smith (PRS) Custom 24 Private Stock #191

$7,495
As easily one of the rarest and most beautiful guitars to ever emerge from the PRS factory, this Private Stock # 191 overwhelms and stuns at every angle. Simply put, it is one of the most incredible guitars we have ever purchased and if you are an aficionado of these ultra high- end pieces, then you are now looking at the very best of the best. For your approval, here are the specifications of...

2001 Warwick Thumb Bass 5 NT

$2,495
There's an old saying that goes, "Know your audience" and so believe me, for this write- up, I do indeed know my audience. I'm talking directly to arguably the most important instrumentalists in the whole wide world, the bass players. Yep, the "Low Enders," the "Boom Gang," and the "Bottom End Boys." And, I know I'm talking to men because it takes a boy dog to strap on a 10 pounds plus sonic...

1997 Paul Reed Smith (PRS) Custom 24

Call
I was going to write a story about "class" in describing this Custom 24. You know, how if you played it, it would make you look classy or about because it was neither a Fender or a Gibson, it stood in its own class. I was also going to mention its classic lines and that would certainly apply because after all, it is 20 years old. Those thoughts were my inspiration for describing this guitar but...

Jeff Carlisi, .38 Special ATA Flight Case for 1964 Firebird

Call
Speaking of rock stars, I've known Jeff Carlisi for a good while now and I bought his 1964 Gibson Firebird years ago. Now this case is all that remains, but hey, it's still cool and might I add, bulletproof. As you can see, it has tour stickers, a backstage pass, and airline tags still attached so if your "Holding On Loosely'" as you "Rock into the Night" with a "20th Century Fox," then we got...

unknown ATA Amp Flight Case

$129
Here's a nice and excellent conditioned flight case for a guitar head. The interior measurements are: length- 21 3/4" depth- 9" height- 9 1/4" If your amp's measurements have these approximate specs and you need a sturdy, protective case, then here ya go!

1962 Gibson Skylark

$949
This lap steel reminds me of Pete Best in a way. I know, I'm doing it again- they probably make meds for the condition I suffer from, but at this time I just don't have 'em nor can I get a handle on it. Pete Best, as you may know, was one of the Fab Four but just for a mere two years but for reasons unknown (even to Pete,) he was summarily dismissed. Don't you see? Much like the shelf-life of...

1969 Marshall Super Bass 100w

$3,195
"The stylin', profilin,' limousine ridin', jet flyin', kiss stealin', wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun! Friends, how do I keep doing this? How in the world can I make a correlation between a Marshall head and the 16-time World Wrestling Champion, Ric Flair? Simple really- because like Ric said on many occasions, "To be the man, you gotta beat the man." Let me ask you, who can honestly say...

1923 Gibson Style A-2

$1,495
Did you know one of the most iconic songs in the history of Rock-n-Roll was written for a Mandolin? The legend who played said mandolin was none other than Ry Cooter. I know, you're thinking, "What song was it?" Well, let me give you a hint: Waiting for a girl who's got curlers in her hair Waiting for a girl she has no money anywhere We get buses everywhere If those lyrics articulate...

1975 Fender® Stratocaster®

Call
As you place your fingers on the fretboard, you're thinking, "Will I ever feel this way again?" Yes, friends, I'm speaking to you and your 18-year-old inner teenager again. Unlike any "relationship" you'll ever know, the one you have with your guitar is as intimate as it gets, now isn't it? If you really think it through, it's like that because it is the one thing that's not only familiar but...

~1966 Goya Rangemaster Case

$120
This is one of those cases (no pun intended) where, if you have a 60's Rangmaster and it's being housed in a doggone gigbag, you and we can easily rectify the situation. Now, I know what's obviously going on with the nose of this case, but it's so rare to see one of these Goya cases with no guitar, we bought it anyway because it's still structurally sound. The latches work and the yellow interior...

~1997 Gibson Explorer Case

$199.95
This 90's Gibson Explorer case is a great find and is in excellent condition. All latches work and the pink sash is attached. The case is structurally sound and clean with the exception of a few small scuffs and tears. No funky smells here, either so if you need a new box for that Explorer, look no further.

1969 Rickenbacker 381

$6,995
This guitar represents yet another example of Lee walking into the 'Elkcave, laying a case up on the table and uttering those always welcomed words, "Check it out, Cub." In 'Elk- speak, that means there is something very cool in that case and just like an excited, 176 lb puppy, I stop what I'm doing and execute the request with perfect precision: I check it out. In this instance, I was...

1968 Fender® Telecaster®

This guitar takes me right back to the Saturday nights of my youth. You know, when we were sitting around watching TV with Memaw? Sandwiched right between WCW Wrestling and The Lawrence Welk Show was what we call down here a little bit of Southern heaven. You know what I'm talking 'bout, right? Hee-Haw. That was the show that depicted real Southern livin', right? You realize us Southerners...

1973 Fender® Telecaster®

$4,195
There's nothing like the twang of an original Tele and these early 70's examples are a buyer's dream in the current vintage market. You can avoid the cost of a Maple cap example while averting the somewhat inferior workmanship of the late 70's guitars. Sorry to put it like that, but "the tooth is the tooth" as we like to say. This particular Tele weighs in at 7 lbs, 12 oz which is a good weight...

~1983 Fender® AVR Jazz/ Precision Bass® Case

$299.95
This one's easy- it's an early Fullerton reissue case for an AVR Precision or Jazz bass. The exterior has the rough tweed with tan leather ends and the interior has the earlier, long- nap orange fur and duck foot compartment door tag. The handle is in good condition and all latches work. This has got to be a rarish case give the fact that it's already 24 years old and with early AVR basses...

Gallien Krueger 250ML

I know- if you close your eyes, you can recall Alex Lifeson sitting in a fold up chair with one of these Gallien Kruegers, perched up on a bar stool doing the "lean." Yes, my friends, he's looking bewildered and rockin' that late 80's look (complete with a Don Johnson jacket, probably straight from the set of Miami Vice.) As I look back, I think styles have changed- (Who wears rolled up sleeve...

1989 Gibson Les Paul Std, Pre- Historic

$3,995
Today, we paleontologists are putting on our miner's caps and getting our sifters hot. Red hot, that is. This guitar reminds me of one of those episodes Josh Gates does on "Expedition Unknown." You know- where poor ole' Josh is in a cave full of bat guano, looking for the rocket propulsion system from the Third Reich's "secret weapon" and the remains of Hermann Göring and his stash of Parisian...

1949 Fender® Super Amp

I was reading a book the other day entitled "The Four Agreements." Basically, it's a book that gives four principles to practice in order to create love and happiness in your life. Like I'm Buddha over here but you know, a brothas gotta hold down these voices in his head. I certainly don't want to pull a semi-automatic pistol out from under the seat 'cause I just don't understand rap and feel...

1953 Fender® Bassman® Amp

$5,995
Man, the rectifier tube in this amp could only be described as a prop in a 50's Sci-Fi movie. I think it was in "Prometheus." Wait- this just in! Ray says it was in "Attack of the Crab Monster." Yeah, that's it. Friends, this amp before you is truly a "monster." Do you remember when Marty McFly flipped the switch on that amp as his skateboard haphazardly found the side of that road case with...

1954 Fender® Princeton® Amp

As an older brother is to a younger brother, isn't it the same way between a Princeton and a Champ? Well, let's just think this through, right? Dad says, "Hey little fellas, let's get in the Grand Prix and go to the lake. At this moment, you, being the youngest now realize what the word "hierarchy" really means.

1952 Fender® Deluxe Amp

Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introduce to you Miss Eileen. I know, I know- this amp sounds like a Hollywood starlet from back in the 40's with such a name. But to the contrary people, this "Eileen" in the late 40's and 50's was a woman that worked at the Fullerton factory, trying her best in post-war America to make her way in a man's world. Considering that your average hourly wage back then...

1985 Jackson Kelly

$1,895
On the way to my very first guitar show back in October of 2000, Lee and I were going over the features of some of the guitars we would be looking for. When we got to Jackson guitars, he said, "Cub, you are looking for the "Made in USA" to be under the "SON" in JACKSON on the headstock. If it is, you got yourself a San Dimas and we'll jump on it." Folks, I was a young cub on the hunt... Jump...

As I write this, I'm listening to Stevie Ray's "Live at Montreux 1982." In reverence to the man and his art, I will not bore you with a "remember when" piece that you've become accustomed to from me by now. But I ask of you, what makes a Rembrandt a "Rembrandt?" What gave John Glenn the courage to take flight in Apollo 11 to the moon? And lastly, on the staggering beauty of Marilyn Monroe, where...
