~1962 Fender® Jaguar/Jazzmaster Case

$595
We know that somewhere out there in the big 'ol world, there's an early 60's Jaguar or Jazzmaster that needs a case and I ain't talkin' about no gigbag neither. This case is clean and structurally sound- just waiting to give your vintage Fender a big, warm hug like the kind you used to get from your mom. The spring action is gone from the outside latches, but they do close and this case will...

1978 Gibson 25/50th Anniversary Les Paul

$4,695
As I have reached the "over half a century old" mark, I was recently thinking about collecting and the things that I have collected over the years. There were several: comic books, Hot Wheel and Matchbox cars and Kiss memorabilia, but it was in the category of vintage Coke bottles that I was a Grand Ninja Master. I was so taken up by old Coke bottles that I would disappear for an entire day...

1991 Fender® Custom Shop 40th Ann. Precision Bass®

$2,795
I decided to pass on the story about aliens from another planet delivering this bass to my house or how I was swallowed by a whale and there was Jonah, playing this bass. Instead, I want to talk about value and what a serial number can do for us (or you). This 40th Anniversary P-Bass may be one of several available on the market, but it is set above the fray by two things: the serial number and...

Collins D-1, D-2 Dreadnaught Case

$199.95
This is an original Collins dreadnaught case that's in excellent condition. I cannot find any rips or tears in the tolex exterior and all latches work perfectly. The green interior has a couple of discoloration spots, but is not torn and I heard that if you don't play your guitar enough, the fabric changes colors. Looks like that is exactly what has happened here, so please call or email with any...

2009 Pedulla Thunderbass Case

$129.95
Lee and I just got into a pile of new Pedulla Thunderbass and Rapture bass cases and I was grinnin' like an...well, you know. This case originally housed a new Thunderbass 5, but I am sure a Thunderbass 4 or 6 would fit quite nicely. If you're one of the guys that bought a new Pedulla in the last few years and were told "it comes with a gigbag, man", then we have exactly what your high- end bass...

2007 Fender® Japan Geddy Lee Jazz Bass®

$899
I think my favorite feature on these Geddy Lee Jazz basses is the thin, slim neck profile. As a younger bassist, with no cares in the world, I'd strap on a 70's P- bass with a neck like an anaconda and a weight of about 11 pounds without a second thought. And, at the end of the night, I'd climb up on top of the P.A. and jump off to much aplomb, but as time has passed me by, I have gradually moved...

1979 Fender® Stratocaster®

Call
I actually heard a gentleman say to a dealer at the Franklin Guitar show, "I'm looking for a good, late 70's Strat to play. You have anything like that?" If I had had this Walnut Strat there, I would have answered that man's call to action! It's widely known that the late-70's and early-80's Strats could be a mishmash of different parts from different years, but not so with this walnut beauty....

1973 Fender® Precision Bass®, P- Bass

$3,295
Yes I know, here we go, I just can't help myself now can I? The question is, do gentleman really prefer blondes? Well, let me see. In 1953, the movie moguls over at 20th Century Fox tried to answer the question that's been perplexing men for decades. Of course, being Hollywood, and with Marilyn Monroe just incinerating men, this question was indeed answered. In the movie "Gentleman Prefer...

2008 Gibson Les Paul R8

$3,695
"Don't you friggin move a muscle," G2 whispered as he pressed the barrel of the Desert Eagle .50 cal against my left temple. "And I ain't hardly bullshittin' either," he said. I stood there motionless, barely taking a breath and as I waited to see if the right side of my head was going to explode, Lee walked into the room with this guitar and another plain top R8. "That's right, G2, keep his ass...

1996 Fender® Prosonic™ Amp

$1,495
How can I put this in terms you can understand? Oh, ok- I got this. You're chillin' on a Friday night and the missus is away on one of those house parties the hens throw, just to gank your banking account for "unnecessary things" you think to yourself. She explains that it's for household goods, but just maybe, the goods are the proclivities these women giggle about while they draw numbers and...

1976 Gibson Firebird

$4,895
Elmore James wrote the song and everyone you know has covered it. The who's who of the Blues world knows this like Job knew suffering. From Clapton to Gary Moore, the song " Dust My Broom," is the very essence of the Blues. As the lyrical content suggests, "I don't want no woman, want every downtown man she meets." That throbbing 1,3,5 progression is purely the foundation of the Blues. The call...

1996 Metropolitan Tanglewood

Call
Metropolitan's recreation of National's famous map guitar is nothing less than spot- on. It's like having a vintage guitar that performs with the ease and precision of a modern one, but still retains the look and vibe of the original models. This Tanglewood has a great neck, is a blast to play and of course, comes in the incredibly rare, one-off Custom Harley Orange. While the original, 60's...

1990 Kubicki X- Factor

$2,895
Back in my "Metal" days during the late 80's, I got my first Kubicki bass. It was, of course, Baby Blue and my bandmates at the time had one hell of a field day with me when I proudly showed up with it. One quote from my lead singer was, "You cannot, absolutely cannot be in a Metal band and play that stupid blue bass." I still practiced with it for a while, but it was quite difficult to come off...

1961 Fender® Champ® Amp

$1,895
I was watching T.V. the other morning like I normally do with my trusty cup of coffee, thinking about my impending day of world domination when all of a sudden, this reporter started saying something that peaked my interest. As I recall, it was something pertaining to nervous people and their need for their "wubby", or their pets, if you will on plane flights. Well down South, we damn well know...

1967 Fender® Stratocaster®

$11,495
You know, I was just relaxing and what not like I always do when the late, great Robert Osbourne (former show host of TCM) came on my TV, talking about this movie, "Dorian Grey". As his baritone voice filled the man's den, the subject matter of this movie captured my imagination. The premise of the movie, taken from an Oscar Wilde book begins with Dorian thinking that beauty is the only aspect of...

1997 Fender® Custom Shop 1958 Stratocaster®

$3,295
What man doesn't dream of pink? The marketing executives on Madison Avenue know this all too well. When was the last time you walked through the mall and didn't see this name prominently displayed on some 19-somethings behind? You see this particular display of seemingly open promiscuity on full display at the gym all the time. One of the top-selling artists on this planet's stage name is- yep,...

1963 Gibson J-50

$4,995
I am going to make a bold statement; We have the best luthier east of the Mississippi, period. I don't care who your guy is or how long he's being working on guitars, our guy is better. We reverently call him "Double D", but his name is Donald Dunlavey and he's the baddest and meanest sumbitch on the planet. This dude is so bad, he has a 40-foot dragon chained outside his workshop and he feeds...

1966 Teisco Spectrum 5

$3,995
As often happens around here, the mere sight of a particular guitar can send one of us into a tailspin of nostalgia and reminiscence. Such was the case with this Spectrum 5 and as soon as I saw it, my mind wandered back to that classic and fantastic cartoon from my youth, Speed Racer. I can only assume that all of the gadgets and switches on this guitar made me somehow think of those buttons on...

1996 Gibson J-200, Elvis Presley, The King of Rock Model

$4,695
I missed the true cultural tsunami that was Elvis Presley. I also missed the British Invasion and that's only because of the year in which I was born. You ask my Mom and Pops about Elvis and she would frown (because she was a King James bible-wielding Southern Baptist) but my Pops would light up. "He was the King, Doodlebug," he would excitedly exclaim and I knew he said that because he was...

1967 Fender® Deluxe Reverb®

$3,695
If it ain't a "hell yeah", then it's a "hell no", as relayed to me by a close friend of mine. That's the kinda poetic verbiage that always makes me go hmmm. People, how many times in your life have you settled for second best? And on how many occasions have you bit your tongue 'till the blood ran down your face? The "judge" in you is always judging (yeah, kinda like when that drunk dude says...

1964 Fender® Princeton® Amp

$1,995
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...

1966 Fender® Precision Bass®, P- Bass

The Death of a Father and Screwheads. It was unseasonably hot on Saturday at the Orlando guitar show. As the room filled with bodies, it got warm so quickly, many of the people were coming our of their long-sleeved shirts and coats and going down to just t-shirts. Lots of sweating going on as well, so on that fateful afternoon, I was standing in our booth, watching the passer- bys and keeping...

2006 Gibson SJ-200 Pearl Vine

$4,595
I would imagine that, if most men are alike in some ways, then the shape of a guitar would usually remind you of a woman. I mean that by them having a certain shape and with curves. I will admit that at first sight of this SJ, I immediately thought that it reminded me of a woman and the one that comes to mind for me is Kate Upton. To each his own- it will be different for every guy, I suppose,...

1994 Gibson 100th Anniversary EDS-1275

$7,995
On the rare occasions where we have encountered one of these 100th Anniversary guitars, there has been a single recurring event: the ring was missing from the case- every time, so when I spotted Lee looking at this guitar from across the room at the Chattanooga guitar show, I made a beeline for him, thinking to myself, "I'll bet you a million dollars the ring is gone". As I sidled up to the table...

1999 Gibson Custom and Historic Divsion Les Paul R9, Murphy Aged, Jimmy Page

$32,995
Every guitar has a story- a tale to tell if you will and this Les Paul is no exception. I think it would be safe to say that no two Les Paul Standard Reissues have exactly the same top. Not exactly, so in a manner of speaking, if every Les Paul Standard has a different top, then you could say that those tops could be considered as fingerprints. Each one, in some way is different. The Maple top on...

You know, I was just lounging the other day, watching T.V. when Barney said to Andy, "When a chicken hawk's around, a wise rooster don't bury his head." As you could easily guess, the new, good-looking doctor in Mayberry was hanging around Ellie a bit more than Andy took a liking to. Also in that magical place called Mayberry, the writers were trying to bring to light the subtlety in human...

2004 Gibson ES-175

$3,395
To play a guitar of this pedigree, you must be accompanied by a no less than a 12-year old Scotch. Maybe even a 15-year old Glenfiddich. Sure, you can make a fantastic whiskey cocktail (or in my case, a shot of Fireball mixed with Rum Chata), but more refined aficionados want to enjoy the smokey flavor unadorned — except perhaps with ice. Even more so to enhance your experience, you could...

2006 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Special VOS, Bruce Kulick Collection

$3,195
I wanna tell you about this guitar, but more so about the man that owns it. When I think about Bruce, my mind doesn't take me down the corridors of a Rock-n-Roll immortals. I know, I could tell you about his days with Meatloaf, perhaps a story about Michael Bolton and must assuredly about his brother's recommendation to Paul Stanley for a part-time, fill-in gig that lasted 12 years with that...

Today class, I'm gonna introduce to you in Psychology 101, the theory of Cognitive Dissonance. The concept, (like I'm Bob Newhart over here) is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs. In layman's terms, it's kinda like spotting that hot chick in a halter top and Daisy Dukes at the family barbecue only to discover she's your...
