Real charges only - no added materials or handling charges. All guitars insured for full value. I will use the least expensive shipping available, although this may be slow in some circumstances (e.g. parcel post). Please let me know if you desire a faster, albeit more, expensive service. Please allow 2 - 4 days of time to prepare and pack your guitar IN ADDITION to the actual shipping transit.

NO buyer's remorse PLEASE! Damage or loss in shipping = insurance claim (with which I will be glad to assist you). At my discretion, a disatistfied buyer may return a guitar (with a thorough explanation) for a full refund of purchase price but not of shipping. I'd rather begrudgingly take back a guitar than truly disappoint a customer. If, however, I have ever made a serious error in identification/originality/damage etc. that negatively affects a guitar's value, then a full refund including shipping will be given. PLEASE file any return claims ASAP - seven days at most.

1965 Guild® F-212

$895
Vintage 1965 Hoboken-made Guild F212 12-string. Solid spruce and mahogany. A real warhorse, but rock solid now... It's been through a lot, but nothing fatal, and it's back in playing shape. It had not been cared for very well, and was obviously left under string tension for an extended period, so here goes... Several repaired top cracks. Only one, the classic "pickguard crack" had been...

~1953 Kay K130 Lark (Jimmy Reed pup)

$750
Righteous early '50s Kay "Lark" model with the famous Jimmy Reed blade pickup. Rock solid and mostly original, but well loved. All external parts original except for control knob base plate, which is an accurate repro made from an old cracked and discarded Kay pickguard. Pup recently professionally rewound to vintage specs. New harness with high quality CTS/orange drop components. I kept the cord...

~1960 Danelectro Cadet

$295
Cool c. 1960 Danelectro Cadet amplifier. Excellent condition overall, with just a little wear and tear on the edges and corners. Grill cloth looks great too. Very quiet - no hum or buzz whatsoever, even with an original two-prong cord. Great tube tone, but of course not all that much volume or gain. Would scorch with a touch of overdrive. Pots are a bit scratchy but work just fine. They also...

~1955 Silvertone 1430

$395
Yummy little mid-50s Silvertone 1430 tube amp. Great tone at bedroom volumes. Appears to be all original. Wallpaper-like covering in good shape overall, but you can see the modest rough spots along some of the edges. Grill cloth is excellent. Not much volume or gain - this is definitely a practice amp. Sounds great, though, and would scream with judicious use of an overdrive pedal. There are...

~1965 Supro Oahu Dual Tone resoglass

$1,495
Tres cool mid-60s Supro Dual Tone resoglass, branded "Oahu." All original except for new blade-type pickup selector switch (good quality replacement from Stew-Mac). Sorry, the original was hopeless, but I'll toss it in the case anyway. Resoglass surfaces still nice and glossy. Just a very little scuffing/swirling here and there. Neck and frets in great shape. The only cosmetic flaw is that some...

~1947 Epiphone Electar Century

$795
Yup, this is an original Epi Electar Century. Excellent working order. Newer three-prong cord, so it's nice and quiet. Speaker has been replaced with a newer Jensen. Original is included, but has not been tested. Let's assume the original speaker is in need of reconditioning, seeing as it was replaced. Cabinet in great shape, but with a few cig burns on top to let you know it was played! Grill...

~1965 Silvertone 1446 Chris Isaak

$1,395
A legitimate claimant for coolest Harmony product ever, a Silvertone 1446 - the famous Chris Isaak model with the smokin' Seth Lover mini hums and short trapeze Bigsby. Sexy like a tuxedo! This one is solid and original, but has enough warts to be player priced. Finish is in very good shape, with plenty of gloss still left. A few widely spaced weather checks. A little bit of scratching and...

~1973 Epiphone not known

$295
Early 1970s Japanese Epiphone 12-string of the bolt-on neck variety. Not sure of model because label is gone. Clean spruce and mahogany body, but all laminates of course. Had suffered from the all too common issue of deformation along the neck-side edge of the soundhole that results from excess pressure on an area of minimal wood strength (I've even seen this on Epi 6-stringers). I re-glued and...

~1965 Teisco EP-7

$450
Uber-cool 1960s Teisco EP-7 hollow body electric in GREENBURST. So tacky that you just have to have it! Great condition all around. A few small dents and scratches between the bridge and tailpiece, where it looks as if a bridge was formerly moved around carelessly. A one-inch stress crack (appears to be finish only) near bottom strap button. Very light and widely spaced weather checking, but...

~1955 Silvertone not known

$375
Very handsome mid-fifties Kay-made Silvertone archtop in all mahogany. All laminates of course. Not quite as clean as the Kay version I have listed, and it has some shallow fingernail sized scuffs on the front (from fingerstyle playing?). Very light - not an issue. Tuner buttons are new, and bridge is an accurate repro. Tight and flush neck set. Slight concavity to the fretboard, which seems...

~1937 Del Oro unknown

$895
Crazy cool pre-war Del Oro round hole archtop parlor (~13.5" bouts) in solid mahogany. All original parts except for replacement bridge. Fully bound in checker board. Outrageous plastic faux abalone fretboard and pickguard that I like to characterize as Mother of Oil Slick! Three clean top cracks that show in pics. The two under the tailpiece and to the bass side of the bridge are firmly cleated....

~1965 Goya M-21

$495
Marked down a bit - nice value in a high-quality solid wood guitar. Delightful c. 1965 Swedish-made Goya M-21 all solid mahogany 00-sized flat top. These are among the very best under-the-radar vintage guitars out there. Wonderful tone and playability - the equal of guitars selling for several times more. Excellent condition all around, but I'm marking it "very good" because of a few non-issue...

~1955 Favilla not known

$795
Very nice mid-1950s Favilla Bros. 00 concert-sized all solid spruce/mahogany flat top. Fan braced. Made in NY, NY, USA. Lovely rosewood or walnut binding. Beautiful looking, playing, and sounding instrument from a fine American maker in their heyday. Neck has been reset, and is actually a little back-set, i.e. leaving a rather high saddle. New saddle is wider than standard, presumably because the...

~1970 Harmony H1260 Sovereign

$675
Wow! Cannon-like H1260 Harmony Sovereign spruce/mahogany jumbo flat top. Yes, you CAN play Stairway on this one - Jimmy Page did (not THIS guitar, of course, but this model). Looks, plays, and sounds absolutely awesome. A variety of minor condition issues and modifications keep this one very affordable. Definitely has had a neck set, now with a small shim under the fretboard extension (which...

~1960 Kay N-10

$495
Marked down! Great guitar, but it's just sorta sitting. Jump on it! Early 60s Kay "White Stripes" full depth archtop electric with pancake pup. I've hade this guitar for a long time, but I've finally got it equipped with all original parts (except for decal). Pancake pup is dark and woody sounding, and has quite a lot of output. Guitar looks, plays, and sounds great, but is not a museum piece....

1977 Univox Hi Flier Phase IV

$695
Ultra cool 1977 Univox Hi Flier Phase IV, the Japanese-made poor man's Ventures model. All original, and in excellent condition throughout. Just a few dings and scuffs here and there, and a little wear through the finish along the edges. Neck joint looks good - the obligatory cracks at the neck pocket are very small and look to be in the finish only (this can be an issue with these guitars, as...

1964 Epiphone Caballero

$795
Marked down to sell!! Nice guitar... Clean 1964 Epiphone Caballero, the Gibson-made (USA) equivalent of the all-mahogany LG-0. The original (and horrible) screw-on plastic bridge was shot, so this one has been outfitted with a correct rosewood replacement. This is one of the few cases where most players and collectors consider a bridge replacement to be a positive feature! The top is slightly...

1967 Fender® Coronado

$1,750
Marked down to move! Great guitar, but, hey, I have others... Very cool 1967 (19JAN67B) Fender Coronado II in candy apple red with matching headstock. All original parts except for one replaced/fabricated pickup spacer. Finish is strong and in great shape, but there are two small areas on the back that look like they were exposed to heat or something chemical (see pic). A couple areas of minor...

~1965 Kay Speed Demon

$795
Excellent mid-60s Kay Speed Demon. All original parts, except for bridge, which is a Kay piece from the correct era. Great condition - just minimal playing wear. Plays nicely with action at 3/32". Neck, fretboard, frets are not ABSOLUTELY perfect (it's a Kay!), but there are no plinky notes or cut-outs, and you can grab full-step bends with ease. Sounds cheap and snotty. Totally Indie/Emo. Made...

1951 Harmony H 60

$895
Updates (cool!): 1) Found a deep-body trapeze as originally used. 2) Guitar now comes in a super nice 1950s black faux gator lined soft shell case. Very nice 1951 Harmony H 60 single pickup single cutaway archtop. Harmony's very legitimate foray into big body jazz boxes, and a real nice one at that. Original finish and binding in excellent shape, neck angle good, original brass frets still...

1971 Grammer S-30

$1,650
Sublime 1971 Grammer S-30 "baby" dreadnought (14.75" at lower bouts). Made in Music City USA (that's Nashville). These are sometimes touted as the guitars of late-60s and early-70s Country Royalty, and they are damn nice. This one sports subtle cloudlike figured mahogany back and sides, and a spectacular top that is a bit of an enigma. Company info would tell you Grammer used Sitka Spruce, but...

~1970 Hoyer not known

$325
Very handsome c. 1970 German-made Hoyer dreadnought acoustic guitar. Fantastic condition. Beautiful mahogany sides and arched back, but woods are likely laminates. The big surface weather cracks on top, as is typical of many German guitars. These are NOT wood cracks. All original parts, including really cool nickle tuners. Looks to have been converted from a zero fret to a standard nut. There is...

~1965 Goya F-11

$450
Very nice 1960s Goya-Levin F-11 grand concert size acoustic, made in Sweden. Fan-braced solid spruce top and flamed birch sides and back. Plenty of dings, scratches, etc., but nothing serious. More than shows in the pics, though. An interesting "hybrid" model. Wide flat fretboard and flamenco guards suggest nylon strings. Pin bridge, solid peghead, and brass tuner posts are obviously for steel...

~1955 Kay all mahogany archtop

$375
Beautiful all mahogany natural finish Kay archtop. Clean, with just a few minor bumps and scratches. All laminates though, as was common with mid-grade Kays. Nice player with respectable tone. Pretty big neck. Has a 1 mm heel gap, but joint is rock solid. Carelessly left in hot car? Wood shrinkage? Doesn't look reset, but maybe... That's its only issue, and the action is still good, although the...

~1965 Norma not known

$550
Totally cool pair of Japanese Normas, solid body electric and short-scale bass. Guitar has two Teisco gold-foil (Cooder) pups. Instruments can be sold separately, each for slightly more than half the price of the pair.

~1970 Goya TS-4

$495
Beautiful c. 1970 Goya/Levin (Swedish made) 12 string. Gorgeous flamed maple back. Very nice player with excellent tone. Not as easy to intonate as the Harptone listed here, but you'll get it. A couple minor top cracks near the bottom, but they're not going anywhere.

~1965 Kay Vanguard

$495
Crazy rare teal Kay Vanguard. Sunbursts were pretty common, but not these little nuggets. All original. Plays and sounds great. Color is very strong, although definitely greening a bit along the neck. Finish is no longer glossy, but has taken on the sort of matte feel that I've seen on other colorful dimestore guitars of the era. Be the first kid on the block to take this to a gig!

1960 Gibson L-48

$1,200
Nice 1960 Gibson L-48. All original, but no PG. Finish is clean, but not quite as nice as it looks in the pics - a little player wear here and there. High E 12th fret action at 1/16". Great player with nice tone. SSC that I don't think is original.
