1959 Fender Super 5F4 Chassis in aftermarket cabinet

$2,000
Here's something you don't see every day, or ever... This amp looks odd on the surface, but don't let the looks fool you. The chassis is a real 1959 Tweed Super 5F4, an amazing sounding circuit! The power transformer is original, the output transformer is a Mercury Magnetics Axiom - as good a replacement as you can buy. Over the years, some misplaced repairs to the chassis were...

1969 Fender Deluxe Reverb AB763 Export Model

$1,599.99
Contrary to popular belief, these Silverface Deluxe Reverbs are pretty much the same as their mid-60's Blackface counterparts. This one differs in that the power transformer and corresponding switch on the rear panel allow for operation in different countries without a step up transformer. The amp is in good shape with only a couple dings through the tolex. The grill is a bit dingy but...

2005 Sherlock Reverb Unit Fender 6G15

$799.99
Add this extremely well made Tweed reverb unit to your old Fender Tweed amp! The tall feet allow it to ride nicely over the handle on your amp. All the highest quality components and a beautifully done, lacquered tweed cabinet come together in this piece, made in 2005 by Brad Ecklund of Sherlock Amplifier Shop in Mt. Shasta, CA. Unique for sure, perhaps one of a kind from this shop. ...

1965 Fender Vibrolux Reverb AA864 Pre CBS

$3,000
Here's a crazy-good sounding Vibrolux reverb with the appointments of the last PRE-CBS models. The amp shows some wear, mostly on the grille, otherwise it is very clean for its age. The amplifier has the original speakers, footswitch and transformers as well as the majority of the internal circuit with only light upkeep performed, for instance it does appear that the wires to the reverb...

2018 Fender '64 Custom Deluxe Reverb

$1,995.99
Fender really nailed it with this hand wired Deluxe Reverb reissue. I've spent a good amount of time playing through this one and it is awesome! All of the vintage tone is here with none of the vintage amp quirkiness. This example is as clean as can be. It was purchased with a collection of guitars and amps. The original owner played everything he owned, but he owned a lot of stuff, so...

Magnatone Twilighter 1x12" Combo

$2,100
The best things about vintage Magnatone amps are included in this amazing combo, less the issues with owning an old Magnatone. The vibrato alone is worth the price of admission, a tone you can't get anywhere else, from an amp or a pedal. The amp runs on a killer tube lineup: (2) 6V6 power tubes, (5) 12AX7s and a GZ34 rectifier tube. Tube driven reverb, tremolo and the above-mentioned,...

Carr Lincoln 2x12

$2,600
Here's a beautiful, Carr Lincoln, wrapped in awesome-looking hand-tooled leather. Not only does it look good, it sounds amazing! Includes a Studio Slips Clamshell cover and the original footswitch. The amp was made in limited quantities in this covering style, and now the model is discontinued by Carr. This might be a good one to stash! There are a couple light scuffs, shown in the...

2020 Danocaster Offset

$4,150
This Danocaster came up a couple months ago and I had to grab it. Then another Danocaster Tele Thinline came up, and I had to grab that. Then Dan offered up his personal Singlecut Tele, and I jumped on that. The Dano personal Tele arrives Friday, and I'm going to keep it, so this one is on the block. I loathe selling it, but I have an old Fender Jazzmaster that I can't part with. It is...

1996 Fender Tweed Bassman Reissue 5F6-A

$849.99
Continental US shipping only. This amp has been relic'd - tweed has been lacquered and overall the amp was aged to give it the 50's Fender tweed look. The amp is completely stock with a solid set of JJ tubes. Everything functions perfectly. These amps have hit the collectable list, and justifiably so, they sound great! This one has the look too! Fender '59 Bassman Vintage...

2004 Fender Clone 5E3 Deluxe

$799.99
What a great little amp! It is likely a Mojo kit, assembled by someone with the last name Lovelace in 2004 - his name is written in the chassis and the cab. High quality parts were used throughout. Hammond and Schumacker transformers, Sprague caps, and a sweet 1962 Jensen P12Q speaker all combine to offer the sweetest tone! The cabinet is finger-jointed pine. The tweed, grille and handle...

2000 Frank Chapman Custom 18w Handwired Amp and Power Soak Pedal

$425
What a great pair! This custom made 18w, handwired amp absolutely rips. It is built into an old, repurposed chassis and cabinet, using vintage transformers. The circuit appears to be based on the famous old Marshall 18 watt design. The amp is small but packs a punch, producing surprisingly loud output with rich tube tone. It stays pretty clean all the way up, depending on what you're...

1997 Fender Pro Junior

$329.99
These are sweet sounding amps with more output than you might think! Two EL84 power tubes and two 12AX7 preamp tubes offer clean and dirty tones. Simple volume and tone controls. 10" speaker. Excellent cosmetic condition, fully functional electronically. Not exactly sure on the year...

1967 Fender Jazz Bass

$8,500
All the superlatives apply here - I can almost hear you citing them! This one is just in from a collection of four basses. Watch for the others coming soon. This '67 Jazz Bass is 100% original with no issues and a great playing neck. Everything on the instrument makes it a 1966 with the exception of the bridge pickup, which is dated 1-3-67. The neck pickup is dated 10-24-66. The serial...

2020 LSL Instruments Placerita

$2,800
Mahar's Guitars is an authorized LSL dealer. I signed up in May of this year, and this was one of the first guitars I ordered. My hunch was confirmed: a Jazzmaster body with P90's is just awesome. I had never played or encountered an LSL in person, but all indications showed that signing up with them would be a good idea. It turned out to be a killer guitar, and I'm happy to be...

2020 LSL Instruments Bad Bone 290 Limited

$2,600
"NOS" - no factory relic work. I started as a dealer for LSL in June, placing orders after following them in social media and being impressed with their guitars. When they started coming in to the shop I was stoked. The guitars are extremely well built, impeccably set up with awesome tone and playability. This Bad Bone pays homage to Fender designs that began in the late 60's that are...

2020 LSL Instruments T Bone One B

$2,000
LSL instruments are proving to be a great addition to the mix here at MVG. The guitars are made in California by LSL's team of craftsmen who hand-shape necks, wind their own pickups and apply modern precision manufacturing to their classic designs. The T Bone One is their entry level model, but you wouldn't think so when you get your hands on it. This example sports a select Alder body and a...

2015 Stonebridge RS 31 AR

$2,650
Here we have a beautiful, well crafted acoustic from Stonebridge by the Czech builder, Frantisek Furch. The guitar is reminiscent of classic Martin design, a full-size Dreadnought body with 14 frets clear of the body. Multi-layer binding surrounds the top and back with the outer layer being tortoise. The top is torrified Adirondack spruce. Back and sides are solid Indian rosewood. ...

1958 Fender Stratocaster

$26,750
If you've read any of my guitar descriptions, you know that I'm pretty straight up and leave hype to others. That said, this is a nearly perfect example of a '58 Strat that has been tucked away in a studio in the Pacific Northwest since it was purchased from the original owner. As the previous owner put it, this is one of those special guitars. Lots of people say this to me. This time it...

1998 Paul Reed Smith Custom 22

$2,400
This is a top-notch PRS. The weight is perfect, condition is basically mint, the top is phenomenal, and it plays and sounds amazing! The pictures - I'm probably not doing myself a favor here or doing the guitar justice. With the fires outside, my standard outdoor pics just aren't happening, so I will start like this and add some more when I come up with a better indoor photo situation, or...

1969 Fender Telecaster Custom with Bigsby

$8,600
Here we have a rare Tele Custom - one of my favorite guitar models! Such a looker with a beautiful three-tone sunburst over alder and the Bigsby cool factor! The guitar has two small issues to discuss, otherwise it is all original, in excellent (+) condition with a super clean original case. The original owner drilled two small holes through the pickguard to allow access to the pickup...

2019 Fender Fender Stratocaster Limited 1955 Relic Custom Shop

The guitar looks a little bit pink in the pictures, but that's just the aged tint to the Blonde finish - check the full sunlight pictures to see how the guitar changes in different light... Wow, the neck on this thing is amazing! Its a mid-50's big, round D shape - not for everyone, but if you can hang it's the stuff! This guitar sold and went out to a customer.  We had unfortunately...

1959 Fender Esquire

Pure in it's simplicity, the Esquire does not skimp on tone and flexibility.  The three position selector brings a gamut of sounds, especially with some tone knob adjustment.
