1998 Fender® SRV Stratocaster®

$1,495
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...

1997 Fender® Hendrix Tribute Stratocaster®

$2,395
When asked of his first impression of Jimi Hendrix, Noel Redding replied, "Funny overcoat and weird shoes." First impressions, I thought. How many times has your mom said, "You can't judge a book by its cover?" Another lesson that we learn down here in the South is; We never know if the person standing in front of us will be someone who directs our life path. I'm quite sure that, when Noel went...

1959 Mel Bay Guitar Chords Book

$5,995
Hailing from the town of Bunker, Missouri, our hero emerged from ashes to beauty. Where would we, as guitarists be without Mel Bay? Just think- without this visionary, I would have never figured out to number my fingers, from fore finger to my pinky numerically 1 thru 4. Mel ingeniously reminded us it was only checkers and not chess. Let me not even go into the side photo of the left-handed...

1986 Fender® AVR Stratocaster®, '57 RI

$2,695
You know me, I love to write a kooky story like a fat baby loves him some ice cream. I often wonder if you guys out there get where I'm coming from? I wonder if I should play it safe, kinda like a football team with a lead in the fourth quarter. In my opinion, playing it safe is playing "not to lose" instead of playing to win. I want you guys to just sit back and imagine if you sat down every...

1970 Kustom Annual Company Report

I'm not even sure if this book is supposed to be out in the public eye, but we have somehow managed to come up with two of them. Highly secretive and clandestine stuff right here, folks. This 23-page book details everything about the Kustom Electronics Company back in 1970 and covers everything from the president's message, to present products offered at that time, their markets, business...

~1969 Kustom Amplifier Catalog

$49.95
There just has to be some fans of the Kustom Company left out there and if so, we've got some goodies for you! This amplifier catalog is from the late 60's- early 70's and covers the 150, 250 and 500 series amps for both bass and guitar. It has six color pages and is in what we would call fine original condition. Very cool piece of memorabilia and please keep an eye on us as we have a trove of...

1973 Rickenbacker 4001

A'ight, I gotta get this off my chest because I know and you know I just gotta expose you for who you really are. I mean "really." Bass players, right? You guys have been the brunt of just about every joke known to man (kinda like dumb blonde jokes.) But let's get real now. Do you remember Errol Flynn in that movie "Captain Blood?" That's the one where Errol crawls up the main mast to the...

1956 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop and GA-20 Amp

$38,995
The 1950's were the years when the things that we now call "Americana" were created. In 1956, my Father was 19 years old, drag racing my Grandaddy's car with his brothers. I'm sure they all walked around with their jeans cuffed and a pack of cigarettes rolled into the sleeves of their T-shirts. That's just how it was during that period and man oh man, don't I wish I had been there. Also in...

1990 Steinberger XL-2

$3,995
If you want to see me get fired up at a guitar show, catch me when I spot a guy walking down an aisle with a Steinberger gigbag slung over his shoulder. I know I have short legs, but I can move real quick when called upon and that's exactly why you see this white XL2 on our website. I always hope that whatever is in the bag is clean- you all know how funny we are about condition around here, so...

1989 Paul Reed Smith (PRS) Custom 24

$4,295
Yeah, this guitar is kinda like that old Sesame Street skit. Oh, you know the one: Somewhere mixed in between "Art with Elmo" and the "Cookie Monster," back on the mean streets of Sesame, that is, they'd be talking about "one of these is not like the other." I suppose from our earliest childhood recollection we were being programmed right then and there and didn't even know it. The...

~1981 Gibson Flying V Case

Call
Here's an early 80's Flying V case that's in excellent condition. The interior is clean with no funny smells and the exterior is structurally sound with all latches working. As these early 80's V's rise in value, so does a clean, original case add to that value. Thanks for stopping by and please call or email with any questions.

1983 Fender® Precision Bass® Elite II

$2,295
I guess you could say that the mark of a really great bass around here is if I want to keep it or not. Now, I'm picky about all of the basses we buy, but there are a rare few that make me look over my shoulder to see if Lee is around and if he ain't, there is definitely a tendency to slide that bass into the back of the vault. At least until I've had some time to noodle around on it. Such is...

1965 Gibson Byrdland

You know how it starts right? You're just chilling with your tribe when all of a sudden, you notice on the distant horizon the night is ablaze. Yep, the other tribe on the other hill is just dancing around, hoppin' and what nottin', waving their spears in the air as they pound off the the "gorilla dust." "Gorilla dust?" Yeah, that is the dust that's emitted when you're pounding your chest...

~1969 SHIN EI UNI-VIBE

$2,495
Word on the street is, some dude that played an upside down Strat back in the day made these units pretty famous. This particular Uni-0Vibe has been studio-kept for many a year and is one of the cleanest examples on the market. Its chorus and vibrato are rich and so superior to the digital effects of today. In short, it stands on its own merits and we were very happy to acquire it and check it...

Fender® Two-Tone Amp

$1,295
If you're looking for an inexpensive amp to have some real fun with, then this is belle of the ball. It can go from being a test amp in an office (that's what we've done here) to a stage or studio ready performer. The combination of 12" and 10" speakers give it a unique, but very solid sound and it's been nothing short of a joy to play around the shop. As usual, I wanted to keep it, but one...

1966 Fender® Stratocaster®

$12,995
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...

1956 Fender® Champ® Amp

Call
You know, Elvis made "Blue Suede Shoes" his signature song earlier on in his career, but it was Carl Perkins who released it first. The year that song was released was also the same year this amp came out of the Fullerton plant. I just sit and think as I write this de*unsafe*ion on how many budding guitarists tried their best to cop that lick Scotty Moore laid down on that now-classic track. Or,...

Yeah, I know- you can get a beat one on Ebay for $250. but you always get what you pay for friends. Always...

2009 Gibson Jimmy Page Les Paul #2 Case

$449.95
This one's going to be quite simple, folks. What we have here is an original case for a 2009 Gibson Jimmy Page R9 #2 and we believe it went with either the aged or VOS versions. The guitar has been taken to the mighty Halls of Valhalla, where I must assume they don't use guitars cases, but if you ever happened to acquire one of these Page #2's and when you asked where the case was, all you got...

1959 Sears SILVERTONE 1431

$399.95
This amp is one of those cool, little pieces that Lee would drag in from time to time and I would stick it in the corner, only to forget about it soon after. This gets the following scenario: (Lee, rummaging around the office looking for a heater because it's still cold in April.) "Cub, you seen my heater?" he asks, but I just ignore him because I've already packed the space heaters away in...

1978 Gibson Les Paul 25/50 Anniversary

$5,295
Lee called me up last weekend and for some strange reason, I just knew that a form of manual labor would be involved. Saturday morning- "Hey Cub. You busy?" he asked. Now, I should have said that I was working on the Saturn 5 rocket parked in my backyard, but knowing what was coming, I simply told the truth. "Nopers." I said. "What ya got going on?" He proceeded to tell me that it was time to...

1976 Fender® Stratocaster®

$2,295
I was a teenager in the 70's and one thing I remember about that decade was that everything was real. The music was awesome and I'd even go so far as to say that the rock that was produced in the 70's was some of the greatest that will ever be written. I guarantee you Sum 41 ain't gonna write no "Stairway To Heaven" today. The same goes for the musicians and their guitars. I don't remember...
