1961 Gibson SG Junior

$4,495
When I chill out at night and I'm watchin' my TV, I'll inadvertently read something of interest on my Nook. Last nights story of interest was on the subject of Easter eggs and the cause and effect of the subliminal and the intended subject, yes, we the consumer. (Think Pixar and the # A113.) A113 is the number of the animation classroom at the California Institute of the Arts. Don't you see...

1998 Rickenbacker 4001V63

$2,395
So, I bought this bass back in January of 2013 at the Orlando guitar show and listed it a couple of months later. I got it from a guy that we had been doing business with for a few years, so I thought everything was on the up and up. Nothing to fear here, right? I actually thought I was getting a really super mega- cool, special order Blue Boy v63, but it seems that not all was what it seemed!...

1987 Marshall Artist 3203

$429.95
I think I was just chillin' at the house, my mom's house that is (you know, a brother was young and tight on the duckets) when all of a sudden, this dude with short platinum blonde hair and more leather on him than three S & M shops dared to carry was screaming about screaming for vengeance of all things. Dude, this was back in the day when MTV actually played videos of bands playing instruments...

1977 Guild® F50R-N-T

Call
On our latest foray into the wild West, looking for guitars, I mentioned to Lee that I wanted what I call a "front porch guitar." He looked at me kinda funny because a:) I never go out onto my front porch and b:) I don't play acoustic guitar very well. Seeing his quizzical look, I ventured on to explain: "What I'm looking for," I said, "is a guitar that's not so expensive, I'm afraid to touch the...

1982 Gibson Les Paul Standard 82

Call
Considering that this is 2017 and we have literally sold hundreds of Les Pauls over the last 11 years, seeing this guitar for the first time helped to solidify my appreciation for the early 80's, "pre- reissue" guitars. To be honest, I didn't even know this particular model existed; I've seen Heritage Elite 80's and we've had a few Jimmy Wallace models over the years, but never one of these...

1997 Fender® Custom Shop Cunetto 1960 Relic® Stratocaster®

$4,795
Of all the Fender Custom Shop guitars ever produced, these Cunetto Relics are among our favorites. Everything about them speaks of quality and attention to detail and I love a guitar that, from across the room looks like it's actually 57 years old. We'll just let the details of this '60 Relic speak for themselves: Weight: 7 lbs, 8 oz Color Code: 804- Daphne Blue Date Put Into Production:...

1972 Fender® Telecaster®

Today's topics are as follows: a 1972 Telecaster and Situational Awareness. "Ok Alex, I'll take Situational awareness for a $1000.00." Ding, Ding, Ding- "Stevie, that's the daily double, so how much do you wanna wager?" You: "Well, hmmm. I don't exactly know Alex." Alex: "Need I remind you that our defending champion has this all but locked up, so go for broke." You: "Yeah, you're right."...

2015 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul CS7, '57 RI VOS

$3,195
We bought this Goldtop along with several other guitars from a client about a month ago. Being lax in my duties lately, I've just now got it cleaned, restrung, set up and photographed so before listing it, I brought it into the office the other day to see if the Tall One would give it a spin. "Hey man," I said. "How about giving this Goldie a whirl before I list it?" He ignored me, so I walked...

1969 Fender® Telecaster®

Imagine there's no heaven. It's easy if you try. No hell below us. Above us only sky. Imagine all the people. Living for today... Aha-ah... As I drove up Hwy 85 the other day, my mind drifted and the thoughts that filled my head were of black magic, conjured courtesy of saucers of the mainstream media. Thought-controlling and manipulative they are at best, all in the name of keeping us...

1956 Fender® Super Amp

$8,995
Since the '58 Super and the '57 Junior are sold, I had to think fast on my feet before preparing the story for this amp. Basically, I did the same thing to Lee as I did to Kevin the Magnificent; I waited until he showed up to work and pinned him down before he could even get his first cup of coffee. He walked into the office and there I stood with this Super warmed up and our '60 Les Paul Junior...

1955 Fender® Bassman® Amp

$8,995
Expectations and the Art of the Approach... The reason that title is there is because of a phone conversation my business partner had the other day. He was in a store when he struck up a conversation with a man that was standing in line with him. Now it's well known that Lee will talk to a wrecked car is someone doesn't tow it off first, so as he and this gentleman chatted, the topic soon...

1964 Fender® Princeton® Amp

Call
I believe the reason we cannot keep these vintage Fender amps in stock for very long is because we are so picky about condition and originality. This Princeton does not disappoint in any category, especially the tone department. It's sweet, crisp and when you want to get a little dirty, it breaks up nicely. The condition of the overall package is no less than exceptionally fine and it represents...

2015 Gibson Custom Shop Alex Lifeson EDS-1275 Aged and Signed

$10,995
Lee looked at me as I stood holding this guitar for the first time."You sure about this"? he said. "It's a lot of money," but I nodded my head and held fast. "I got a feeling about this one," I said. "I think we outta go with it," and with that statement, this guitar was ours. On the ride home from the Philly show, as Lee was driving, my mind drifted as I thought about what I was going to write...

1971 Ludwig Phase II Synthesizer

$1,795
Wanna get looked at like you have two heads? Then suggest to your business partner that we should buy a synthesizer made by a drum company in the early 70's. Now that will get you a funny look, but it's exactly what happened with this Ludwig Phase II. I saw it amongst a very large, private collection of vintage effects and pedals and knowing the name Ludwig from my childhood, I figured it was a...

Polytone Mini Brute III

If you are a bass player you walked into your booth on dealer day at a guitar show and saw this amp sitting on a table, what would you do? Well, I'll tell you- you'd check it out and that's exactly what happened to me at the most recent Philly show. I was tooling around the venue, checking out what other dealers were putting on their tables when it struck me: "Hey Ray. Ain't you a little...

Mesa Boogie Lonestar Special

I know, I know- you're hanging with the boys by the pool, drinking a few cool ones and checking out the local talent while being serenaded by the intro of Van Halen's "Jump," right? Then, without cause or provocation, your head space is temporarily tainted by that oh- too- familiar iPhone ringtone. The office you think? Maybe a friend? Could be, but wait- it says HOME... HOME? Oh no! Doesn't...

1961 Fender® Princeton® Amp

The band was loading the stage, getting ready for the night's gig and this was the big one. It was the first gig, the blast off, the grand arrival. They were all practiced up and ready for rock. The scene was Bobby McCall's backyard on a makeshift stage that had been thrown together that afternoon (Bobby lived on the 14th fairway of Golden Hills Country Club, so he had the money to throw at some...

1992 Fender® Custom Shop Set Neck Stratocaster®

$2,695
It's a known fact that, as a bassist, I primarily look for basses whenever we attend a guitar show. It's just what I'm naturally attracted to and I can still spot the tip of a Steinberger gigbag from 100 yards away. That said, it's also my mission to generally find anything that we consider cool enough or worthy of offering on the 'ol Elk website. I may be standing around our booth, killing time...

2001 Taylor PS-14- C

$7,995
The first time I recall having a feeling that overcame me was when I was a teenager. That feeling came to me when my best friend picked up his guitar and played, pitch perfect from his soul like he was born to do it. A savant, if you will and his guitar playing skills were so profound, they far exceeded my limits as I knew them. As if I were Antonio Salieri to my friend's Mozart. As if God...

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...

1994 Fender® Custom Shop Jerry Donahue Telecaster®

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

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

"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...

1962 Gibson Skylark

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...

"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...

1975 Fender® Stratocaster®

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...

1969 Rickenbacker 381

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...

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...
