1960 Fender® Jazzmaster™

$4,495
One of the crazier, and most endearing early Fender Jazzmasters that we’ve had. It’s probably still got most of its original sunburst finish underneath that almost-professional white paint, pretty neatly done too in our opinion, and has an absolutely great, ultra-cool look to it, unbeatable. The neck finish is original. The bridge pickup is early 60s and the neck pickup is some kinda early...

1956 Gibson Les Paul Junior

$4,995
Here’s your Les Paul Junior. It’s real, it’s in great shape, it’s all original other than tuner buttons, and the price is way lower than any you’ll find anywhere, many of which are not in nearly this nice condition. The frets are fabulous and original and it has its original case too too. No joke, this is a terrific example at the best price you’ll see anywhere. What are you waiting for? $4995...

2007 Moonstone 6/12 Acoustic

$3,995
Some of you may have seen the fabulous, custom-built Moonstone solidbody electric guitar we had here a few months ago; this guitar almost makes it pale by comparison. It was made by noted luthier Steve Helgeson, in 2007, for the same person for whom the electric had been made in 1982, who called himself Johnny Redwood (from whose estate we got the guitar), and the initials “J” and “R” are inlaid...

1972 Gibson RB-250

$2,695
Gibson serial numbers from the 1970s are a bit opaque, but we can safely call this banjo as being form the early 1970s, with 1972 being a very educated guess. Regardless……It’s a real, honest-to-goodness Gibson Mastertone from the just-post-“bowtie inlay” era, when they finally realized that the pre-war inlay patterns and pearl-inlaid script peghead logos were indeed quite cool. It has the 1920s...

1969 Gibson RB-150

$1,795
With its cool, comfy, slightly shorter 30” scale length, the Fender Musicmaster Bass has always ben a favorite of everyone who wanted an easier-playing instrument, or a slightly less expensive one, or those who just loved the sound of these unique Fender basses. This one has exactly the right look of 40+ years: slightly checked finish on the body, slightly darkened natural finish on the neck, and...

1957 Gibson ES-125T

$2,595
Wonderful, rare Gibson neck shape, find it only in the very very late 1950s; a little wider, a little deeper, rounder, just great. A fairly rare takeoff on Gibson's tried and true deep-body ES-125 with its iconic P-90 pickup, but with the then-new and hip thinner body style, most often found only on an ES-120T with a Melody Maker pickup in it. Amazingly, no one has ever fooled with this guitar;...

1952 Gibson J-50

$6,495
BOOM! There is nothing, and I mean nothing, like the tone and volume an earlier Gibson Jumbo, as in the J-50 and J-45 models. When you pick up a truly great one, start to play it, the very first note just grabs you in the gut and you take off from there and it's hard to stop. That’s exactly what we have here, a 1952 Gibson J-50, having the rarer natural finish as opposed to the more common...

2006 Gibson Les Paul Studio

$1,495
Of the finer “Premium Plus” variety, now ten years old about dead perfect, virtually unplayed. Gorgeous flamed maple top usually found only on the WAY higher-priced Gibson Les Paul models, it’s a true honey. One-piece mahogany body, one-piece mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, the works. Take me home for only $1495 w/ohsc

1953 Gibson J-45

$6,995
Gulp. That sound, from the early 1950s, Gibson BOOM all the way, couldn’t possibly sound any more like the earlierJ-45 of your dreams than it already does. Mild overspray barely noticeable, perfect neck reset, ready to go. $6995 w/hsc

1940 Gibson ES-150

$3,495
The Gibson ES-150 guitars made from 1940-42 were the true beginning of the modern era of Gibson electrics, having the newly modified single-coli pickup with Alnico magnets and, more importantly, adjustable pole pieces, the forerunner of what would become the heart of the Gibson electric line after WW II. To get what Gibson called a “brilliant tone”, they put the pickup in the bridge position; the...

1956 Gibson J-160E

$5,495
This Gibson J-160e has got to be one of the very first ones of “the cool kind” which is to say with the adjustable bridge that’s miles ahead of those real early ones that have weird bridges and saddles. For whatever reasons, the slightly later ones just sound a whole lot better, and have basically the same specs as those through the mid-1960s, as used by John Lennon. (Aside: Sean Lennon bought...

1964 Gibson J-50

$2,995
This Gibson J-50 sounds fantastic. Has that kind of BOOM and clarity of tone you expect to find only in a Gibson from the 1950s costing at least twice as much. Has a great-feeling neck too, a full 1-11/16” wide at the nut and real comfy around the back. Has a few nicks and dents though far less than what one would expect after 50+ years, and not a crack or repair showing anywhere. The tuners have...

1893 J.E. Dallas Banjo

$1,395
From our great friends across The Pond, before the turn of the century (no, not that one; the one before that) comes this beautiful J.E. Dallas five-string banjo, dated by banjo expert nonpareil Leo Coulson of Salt Lake City as being from 1893. In obvious emulation of and showing great admiration for the wonderful SS Stewart banjos from Philadelphia at the time, it is a wee bit more robust in...

1934 Martin 0-17

$5,995
They don’t get much cooler than this, in a pre-war Martin or at all for that matter. One of the very first Martins ever to have modern T-type frets (they all had bar frets up until sometime in 1934), and a neck size and contour to dream about: a true 1-3/4” at the nut, and a wonderful handful of a modified V-shape, can’t beat it and never duplicated for comfort, by anyone, to this day. This...

1946 Gibson LG-2

$4,995
From the seemingly endless stream of Gibson LG-2s from 1946 or thereabouts comes this one, ostensibly from 1946 (but who could really know for sure?), and…… it’s got the highly desirable and much coveted “script logo” which, I’m sure you know as do we all, makes it sound better. Weird thing is, it seems to really be true, at least in this case. It does sound FABULOUS, and we’re experienced...

1976 Fender® Stratocater Hard Tail

$2,495
Hardtail Strat, hard rock Strat. True. Solid ash body, maple neck, staggered pole-piece pickups, come on!. All original, solid as they come, and HOT! You always wanted one like this……… $2495 w/hsc

1960 Gibson LG-1

$2,995
A Gibson LG-1 for the ages, as nice and tasty as they come. Aside from being so clean and original, it’s got that rare, slightly wider, flat-oval-shaped neck that seems to have existed on Gibson guitars for only about twenty minutes, around 1960. It plays like a dream and has the sound of the early 1960s as well. A perfect, smaller-bodied earlier Gibson guitar. $2995 w/ossc

1952 Martn 00-18

$5,995
We just love the Martin 00-18 guitars, and especially love them when they’re more than sixty years old and as terrific and in such fine condition as this one. Has its small share of minor scratches (mostly on the bottom, where you can’t see them), shows fabulous character, and without a single crack on it anywhere. Perfect action due in part to a perfect neck reset (by parties unknown), but...

1926 Gibson L-0

$5,995
What a wonderful 1920s Gibson flattop guitar, with such a wonderful story. From 1926 (per the Spann book of pre-war Gibson FONs), of the type many people today call “the Robert Johnson model”, it’s of Gibson's earlier body shape, with mahogany back and sides and a spruce top. In extremely solid condition, with only one very minor back crack way off to one side and a small indiscretion on the...

1979 Gibson Les Paul Standard

$2,495
What can I say. Someone took a Les Paul Standard and gave it a hippiewood finish, all the better to play bars with. In point of fact it happens to be uncommonly hot, no idea why. It’s also been given Graph-Tech saddles and a Graph-Tech nut, cooler control knobs, upgraded GIBSON DELUXE tuners, and what I must say is one slick setup job right here in our own shop. Very cool. $2495 w/hsc

1962 Gibson LG-1

$2,495
Nice and sweet, with about the most comfy neck ever, one of those rare ones that only occur in the very early-1960s and then are gone. It’s beautiful, it plays smooth as silk and sounds it too. Has thankfully had its original adjustable bridge replaced with a solid rosewood one, apparently of Gibson manufacture. Clean as a whistle everywhere. $2495 w/ossc

1966 Fender® Jazzmaster™

$3,995
Lovely, lovely, and priced right. All the right stuff including genuine Mojotone pickups, both ways. Cool original sunburst finish and all the hardware; wonderful original frets, and beautifully refinished neck though no idea why. Heck of a great 1960s Fender Jazzmaster, all set up by us, ready to rock. $3995 w/ohsc

1978 Fender® Telecaster® Deluxe

$2,395
Two Fender Humbuckers on a Fender Telecaster, how much more could there possibly be? 1978, lessee: You could buy an 8-track tape player (Remember those? No?); the Susan B. Anthony dollar coin was issued (What?); Karl Wallenda, founder of the internationally renowned Flying Wallendas high-wire acrobatic troupe, dies after falling off a tightrope (prolly shouldna been there in the first place);...

1974 Martin D-35

$3,495
Perfect! ………is what this over-forty-year-old Martin D-35 is. Well, nearly, but close enough in our book as it’s just so lovely, with wonderful finish, frets, action, and TONE! Not a single fault can be found; it’s squeaky clean and has never needed a single repair of any kind (other than a nicer pickguard (common enough for these to need changing on 1970s Martins). And its action is as smooth as...

1965 Fender® Jazzmaster™

$4,595
Now this is the Fender Jazzmaster to have. It’s cool, it’s straight, it’s all there, and it’s righteous. It even smells good. You’ll know it when you feel it, when you play it, when you hear it and love it. Got all the original stuff and the neck feels like home. All set up right here and ready to rocket away. $4595 w/ohsc

1969 Gibson ES-335

$4,995
Spectacular. About the cleanest, nicest late-1960s ES-335 we’ve seen in a very long time. With its totally original Shamelessly Red finish, its wonderful handful of a neck, its totally original frets and all its parts, you just won’t find another late-1960s ES-335 nearly half as sexy as this one; it borders on the louche. It even still has its original hand-serial-numbered Gibson hang tag and the...

1938 National Duolian 14 Fret

$3,995
LOUD, and with the way cool 14-fret neck and the rare and much easier to deal with solid peghead. This is one of the later 1930s National Duolians, with that nice, deep, full-V-shaped neck. And that neck is nice and straight too, much more than I can say for a lot of those older Nationals, which also means that the action is quite correct (set up right here, by us) and beyond fun to play....

1942 Martin 0-15

$4,995
About the nicest older, smaller Martin that can be found. From very early in 1942, probably started at the Martin factory sometime in late 1941, before the war broke out. In 100% structural condition with a perfect, easy action and its original frets and original genuine ivory saddle intact and never cut or fooled with; very slight neck reset done here in our own shop. Deep rich tone for days,...

1958 Gibson ES-225T

$2,995
There is nothing, but nothing, that looks or feels quite like a 1958 Gibson semi-hollowbody electric guitar. This ES-225T has that huge P-90 sound, has all its original stuff too, plus an extra strap button near the neck, no idea what someone was thinking. Gorgeous original Gibson sunburst finish and perfect on the back of that wonderful 1958 neck. Frets great, setup fab courtesy of our own shop,...
