1989 Gibson 35th Anniversary Les Paul Custom

$5,295
I've been watching these videos lately called TED-X Talks in an attempt to fill my mind with goodness and positive thoughts. That said, my head is so full of bubbliciousness, I told Lee that I just couldn't come up with a story for this 35th Les Paul. He said, "Well, why don't you just write about the scale length and the nut width?" I shook my head- that wouldn't do because it would not be in...

1994 Fender® Custom Shop Set Neck Telecaster®

Call
Men are not the masters of subtlety. No, we're the sex that laughs at farts and watches Will Ferrell movies, and we wouldn't know subtlety if it hit us over the head with a brick. We are a loud, proud raucous group of individuals. We crave a bit of titillation to avoid day to day aggravations. Girls? Nope, they just don't understand now, do they? If your girl can watch Ricky Bobby with you...

2003 Fender® Custom Shop Masterbuilt Custom Esquire

$10,995
Here is an official Elk "call to arms" for all our Fender Custom Shop collectors. This 2003 Custom Esquire was masterbuilt by the late John English and is # 3 of only four made in the run. It was displayed in the Fender Custom Shop booth at the 2003 Winter Namm show and I have to admit that it is one of the most unique Esquires we've ever seen. Everything about this guitar brings to mind words...

~1966 Fender® Stratocaster/ Telecaster® Case

$399.95
We think the '66 Tele or Strat that originally came in this case, was either stolen by aliens or used as trade bait for LSD during the Summer of Love back in '67. It's in excellent condition and all of the latches work properly. It's been cleaned and vacuumed out so there are no funky odors or strange hieroglyphics in or on it. Simply put, it's a great case for a great price and if you need it,...

1990 Kubicki X- Factor

$2,995
Back in the late 80's, I played in a band called Viper. We were a fairly good cover band and it was during this particular period that I was at my most wicked. Ask just about any of the girl bartenders from that time and some of them could tell some pretty sordid stories. I'm really hoping that they've all moved away and the stories will stay where they belong- in the past. It was also during...

1998 Gibson Les Paul R9

Call
It's not well known that I have been trying to work on what goes on inside my head of late. Nothing too terribly deep- just surface things that make me think, feel better and as a whole, try to be a better human being with the short time I have left here on this rock called Earth. One small part of that body of work is the act of appreciation or appreciating something. I have discovered that I...

2004 Spector Euro 4

$1,495
I heard it said somewhere that, in the mid 90's, Chevrolet began installing Corvette drivetrains in their Camaro Z28's. With the Camaros being lighter and much cheaper than the Corvettes, this act led to sales of the Camaro rising and sales of the Corvette dropping. I can certainly see that- you get all the horsepower and fun for about half the price and to a working- class guy in the 90's, this...

2014 Fender® Custom Shop '52 RI Esquire, Closet Classic

$2,695
"The One". That is the title you could give to something so special, it may only come around once in a lifetime. It could be the girl that you dated back in the day and after a few years went by, you found out she had slowly poisoned your whiskey until you woke up one day with a terrible hangover and a ring on your left hand. I should know- it happened to me. Or, "The One" might be that 1970 SS...

1971 Gibson LES PAUL CUSTOM

$5,995
Do you recall The 1975 Les Paul catalog that featured Keith Richards playing his Les Paul Custom? Although his looked to me like a mid- 50's model none the less, the Les Paul Custom is a very iconic guitar. Most of you (like myself) saw one for the first time while drooling over a Kiss tour book. You remember right? The whole "Kiss only plays Gibson" advert on the back of their albums? Hell, I...

1964 Fender® Jaguar®

$7,295
Oscar Wilde said that "Any map that doesn’t have Utopia on it is not worth looking at." As I pondered on Utopia, I thought, "does that place really exist?" In a world that, from the day you are born indoctrinates you in social conditioning to accept the abstract as normality. Why do I bring this to you in a description of a '64 Jaguar? Because I want you to go back in time to find the...

1993 Fender® Custom Shop Bill Carson Stratocaster®

$3,495
Lee and I were sitting out back a few days ago when the subject of "game changers" came up. We were discussing the matter and went on to name a few people we thought were game changers: Michael Jordan, Richard Petty, Bill Gates and of course, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of Kiss. Our ultimate agreement on the subject was that to be a real "game changer", you had to either do something that had...

1990 Rickenbacker 381v69

$3,295
This one's going to be really easy; "Dude, that's an autumnglo," as he pointed to this guitar. I nodded my head in agreement because sure enough, this was one of the nicest Rickys I'd seen in a good long minute. We walked up closer to inspect the guitar and the birdseye figuring immediately popped out on this thing like diamonds wrapped around Kate Upton's hips (gotta get my K.U. reference in...

2002 BAKER BJH California

$4,295
There is something about the handling of a guitar that can make one really appreciate the beauty of wood. After seeing this Baker for the first time, I actually sat back and reflected on the wonder of this magical medium. I stood on my back deck and looked at the old- growth hardwoods that surround my house. These old warriors renew themselves every spring and then go back to sleep every winter....

1979 Gibson Flying V

$6,295
You're under the lights, right and you're playing the longest guitar solo known to man. You've practiced this solo 'till you can play it in you sleep, complete with the perfect vibrato and "the look." You know the rock guitar look, right? Well, if you don't, picture the mouth slightly agape, eyes of a sadist and the swagger of a gunfighter. The opening rhythm comes to a crescendo and here we go....

2010 Gibson Custom Shop Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom

$4,495
My only meeting with Zakk Wylde came at the 2006 Arlington Guitar Show and it's one that I've not forgotten to this day. I had previously heard that he would be there for a meet-n-greet, courtesy of Gibson guitars and to be honest, I really didn't know what to expect. The dude looked like he ate chainsaw blades for breakfast and rode his Harleys hardtail. I guess you could say that I was a little...

2012 Gibson Custom Shop SG Standard, '62 RI VOS

$3,495
** NEW ARRIVAL ** A guitar intervention, if you will... We bought this SG at the Charlotte guitar show and after returning home, went through our usual process of cleaning and re-stringing it before taking the pictures. After the pix were shot, I took it up to our tech, Kevin the Magnificent so he could perform his magic on it. He did his thing and into the vault it went, quiet as a mouse....

2015 Gibson Custom Shop Flying V, '59 Reissue

$3,695
You know, of late I've been all into self development. Yes I know, like I haven't learned all there is to know in the half century I've lived here on planet Earth. No, I need to spend $17.95 plus the government's fleecing to enhance myself. I'm no genius, but I believe that if I'm going through it, someone else has already been through the same thing. Like the Chinese proverb states, "If you...

1951 Gibson J-45

$6,495
My father used to tell me stories of when he was a teenager back in the 50's. Of course, as a young man, I didn't have the time to listen to tales about "the good old days," as he called them, but later in life, I would sit for half a day, listening to the things he and my uncles did as youngsters. One story that always stuck out in my mind was the one about my grandfather's car. My Grandaddy was...

2015 Gibson Custom Shop '58 RI Mahogany Explorer

All the greatest pimps from the past, from Fly Guy, Willie Dynamite, Huggy Bear and the flyest pimp ever, Rudy Ray Moore aka Dolemite had one thing in common: their pimp hand was strong. "What's that? You don't have my money?" You know what's coming next, right? Without exception, these words would be followed by, "Bitch, you betta' be gettin' yo pimp his.," followed by a backhand and a whimper....

2003 Gibson Les Paul R7

Have you ever seen that show on MTV called "Catfish?" It's a show about people meeting other people on the interwebz and being deceived on who they really are. The producers will find a person that thinks they are talking with a really hot chick, but when they go to meet them, it turns out to be a fat dude with a scraggly beard that lives with his mama. The show is basically about deception and...

1970 Gibson LES PAUL DELUXE

$4,895
Sitting somewhere on a couch in a rehearsal room in the early 80's, Mark (my bassist) and I blazed on a joint. The jam pad was full of beer cans, Rush and Van Halen posters, one lava lamp and what looked like a huge, wooden electrical spool. Of course, band practice went well and as you could have guessed, we did at least four encores to yet another sold out crowd in Madison Square Garden....

"Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom." This quote brought to you courtesy of King Solomon Psalms 2:15. Why did I go all biblical on ya? Well, let me think- I suppose I'm bringing to you a perspective on interpretation. Preachers are famous for this, but when I reflect on this, my mind takes me to what killed our joy? The "Little...

2004 Gibson Les Paul Supreme

$2,995
I know many of you cannot believe your eyes, but yes, this is an actual 2nd year Supreme in the most highly ever coveted Root Beer color. And, that's only the beginning- to our complete awe and best of hopes, it plays even better than it looks and that's no jimmy- jimmy right there. We absolutely love it when we get a guitar in the Elkcave that Gibson got right and this six stringer is a shining...

"Plastic on the floor. Let me explain please. Do you remember that scene in "Goodfellows?" Tommy DeVito, aka Joe Pesci was apparently gonna be "made." He, Tommy walks into the garage only to look down at what? Plastic on the floor. We all know that can't be good, right?

Wouldn't finding the perfect and most balanced guitar in the world be like a Shogun finding the perfect katana? Or, shall I say the Katana, or guitar finding you? If you know your Japanese history, then undoubtedly you've heard of Masamune. He was the finest sword maker Japan has ever known. Masamune's "piece de resistance" was the The Honjo Masamune. This particular sword represented the...

2005 Gibson Custom Shop Gary Rossington SG

** NEW ARRIVAL ** Oct. 20, 1977. If you know what this dates signifies, then you are who I wanna talk to. I was a mere thirteen then and this tragedy came on the heels of the King's death just the month before. The death of Elvis was traumatic to so many. I remember running from the garage as I heard the news coming from that small Soundesign radio. I also remember my mom's reaction as I told her...

1980 Gibson Flying V2

$3,195
This looks like one of those guitars you'd play while in a German gasthouse playing for guys named Fritz, Hans or perhaps even a Gunter. Of course, they (Fritz, Hans and Gunter) do what they do. They wear those lederhosen (you may have seen those in National Lampoon's "European Vacation,") eat red meat, drink room temperature beer all while listening to Bavarian Polka bands. We all love us some...

1975 Fender® Stratocaster®

Blackmore, Hendrix, Malmsteen and Moore. Those four names are synonymous with a white Strat and I'll bet you can find pictures of years and years of those guys onstage with one. I'll now admit a small sin; This guitar reminded me of the guitarist in the band Angel, Mr. Punky Meadows. They were a band discovered by Gene Simmons in the 70's and were also signed to Casablanca records. They wore all...

2012 Gibson ES-330

I think it's an amazing thing that a guitar can remind you of a person or event from your past. "The good old days" as we call them. When I was a freshman at Lakeshore High School back in 1978, I met a pair of sisters- Tammy and Lisa Thompson. Tammy was a year older than me and was one of the most beautiful girls in the school. Simply stunning. She was in darn near every club, was on the drill...

1976 Martin D-76

The story on this guitar is simple, but very interesting. The gentleman that previously owned it bought it new in late 1976. He was a prominent collector from Florida and in these past few years, we have been chosen to assist him in liquidating his collection. When this D-76 was shown to us, it was still sealed in it's original box, unopened. Imagine if you will, a real live, 40-year old virgin....
