2017 Nash Wayfarer

$2,100
Bill Nash makes some pretty great guitars but until the Wayfarer came out, the designs were old classics. While this one is reminiscent of the old Epiphone Crestwoods and Coronets which were derivative of the Telecaster and Esquire, the semi-hollow three pickup configuration is like nothing else out there. Not only do you get three hot hum buckers (DiMarzios) but you also get the quack of a...

1957 Fender® Esquire

$9,750
Here's a recently refinished 1957 Fender Esquire. Not for the purist or collector. This is a player for sure with an absolutely to die for big fat vee neck. It is not relic'd and shows no wear at all in the body. The neck was refinished long ago but the front of the headstock and decal were left alone. The electronics are original as is most of the hardware and plastic. One of the knobs looks...

1960 Fender® Esquire Custom

$12,000
Coolest guitar in the house (for now). Esquires are my favorite Fender. Think of it as a Telecaster without the worthless neck pickup and an extra added oomph from the lead position which bypasses the tone control. Telecasters don't do that. And a black Custom?? OK, it's refinished (a long time ago) and it looks great. A factory black Custom will cost you 4 or 5 times as much if you can find one...

1952 Fender® Telecaster®

$25,000
This one is a little tricky. The neck appears to be oversprayed but not the fingerboard. The body finish appears original but the two experts disagree-one says definitely original, the other suspects overspray a very long time ago. It black lights perfectly and shows quite a lot of checking. There is a small area under the guard where the finish was removed-no idea why. My theory is that a...

1967 Fender® Telecaster® Custom

$12,750
Transitional 67 Telecaster Custom. Still nitro finish (original), transitional decal (not the later black one). This had a Bigsby installed but not the usual type that leaves a load of holes in the top. This guitar has two filled holes that are barely visible under the bridge plate and completely invisible with the ashtray installed. The other two filled holes are in the binding on the edge not...

1961 Gibson ES-335

$17,000
Here's how you can get yourself into a great sounding, great playing dot neck for less than that 64 you have your eye on. This 61 has a few issues that keep it from being collector grade but its miles above the usually player grade. It's just priced like one. Issues? 61's have a tendency to develop a stress crack from the truss rod from the 1st or 2nd to the 5th fret. It doesn't affect anything...

1959 Martin 00-18

$1,400
I'm not a classical guy at all but this walked into my shop and seemed like something that someone out there would want at a good price. The model designation is 00-18G and the year is 1959. New bone nut and saddle. Action is a little high for my taste but it's about the same as the two new classical I have in my shop so it must be me. One repaired top crack. New soft case.

1963 Fender® Bass VI

$6,800
If you're a guitar player who wants to play the bass, a Fender VI is a pretty unique choice. It's a six thing bass that feels more like a guitar (tuned an octave down) with a longer scale than your guitar but a shorter scale than a Precision or Jazz bass. I don't know who had the lame idea to put a vibrato on it but it's the locking type and you can leave it locked and ignore it. This is a one...

1960 Gibson ES-330TDN

Call
These have gotten impossible to find and are still a great deal even as the prices rise into 5 figures. I'm surprised these don't sell for much more given the big numbers a blonde 335 or 345 gets. They made these only in 59 and 60 (after that it was special order only) and only 294 left the factory. This is a fairly late 60 with the slim/wide neck. The original P90's are typical screaming monster...

1961 Gibson Les Paul SG

$5,000
OK, pay attention-lots of non original stuff here but a great player grade SG that doesn't look like a player grade SG. First, it was refinished by Lay's and the finish is probably better than the original was. The sideways trem is gone and a stop tail is in its place. Neck profile is kind of unusual-it starts off the size of a 59 at .88" at the first fret but it pretty much stays the same all...

1959 Fender® Bandmaster

$11,000
Always hard to find and nearly impossible to find with original transformers (they were undersized and prone to self destruction), this 59 Bandmaster is a bit of a holy grail for tweed aficionados. The more readily available tweed 5F6-A Bassman is a great amp but at 45 watts, it's more than most of us need these days, so the lower power alternative is the 5E7 Bandmaster. It comes in at 26 watts...

1959 Gibson ES-345

$17,000
Some guitars are just loud. I plugged this in to a 66 Fender Pro Reverb on 3 and it blew the roof off the place. Sealed PAFs measure 8.68K and 8.45K which might have something to do with it. Mid to late 59 (first week of October) ES-345 factory stop tail. Never had a Bigsby. This one has the transitional neck meaning it isn't the baseball bat of 58 and early 59 but its not the "blade" neck of...

1958 Gibson ES-335

$34,000
A great playing late (bound neck) 58. These 58's had a thinner top than in subsequent years making them more resonant and more fragile around the jack. Most have a crack or two or three there which is why Gibson went to the thicker tops in 1959. This has those cracks and has been well repaired. This guitar is all original except for the bridge-the original is the thin version and like all of...

1965 Gibson ES-335

$8,000
Best deal in vintage 335's? Big neck 65's. Contrary to what everyone seems to believe, 65's don't have T-tops and may even have early patent numbers (same as PAF). Most have the later pre T-tops but those are excellent pickups too. The big neck is identical to the very desirable 64 neck. So why so much less than a 64? Trapeze tailpiece is why. So, you can leave it alone-there is nothing wrong...

1959 Guild® CE-100D

$2,100
Not too many of these around. This is a 1959 Guild CE-100D-basically the Guild equivalent of a Gibson ES-175. It's had a few parts changed over the years. The Bigsby and Bigsby bridge are not original but they are vintage and era correct. The harness is not original (70's, I think) but the Franz pickups are. There has been some work done on the bindings and it wasn't done all that well but its...

1959 Fender® Bassman®

$6,000
I wish I could say this was a factory brown Bassman but it isn't even though the previous owner insists that it is. There were a few made but they would have been from 1960. It's a 59 tweed that has been covered in Fender correct brown Tolex. If it was factory brown and original, I'd be selling it for $20,000. The amp section is super clean and is original but for the filter and coupling caps. I...

1963 Fender® Princeton®

$2,600
Super clean and original brown Princeton from 1963. All original (even the leather handle) except for the power cord which has been changed to a three prong. The original AC cord is included. Speaker is an Oxford dated 44th week of 62. Trannies and most of the caps are original. The filter caps have been done but that's about it. Comes with a nice padded D2F cover. Sorry, footswitch is MIA.

1959 Gibson ES-335

$35,000
Well cared for late 1959 ES-335. Neck is transitional meaning it's medium in depth-not the big bat of a neck that 58 and many 59's have. First fret measures around .83" and the 12th is .92"-a lot like a 64. This is not the flat skinny neck of mid to late 60. All parts are original. PAFs measure 8K (bridge) and 8.35K (neck). Guitar shines like new but shows fine finish checking throughout. The...

2000 ESTEVE 2GR5F

Spanish made nylon string classical guitar. Guitar is virtually unplayed and shows no sign of any wear or use. Guitar appears to be sycamore and spruce. Nice round tone and very easy to play. Very well made instrument.

2002 Takamine C-132S

$550
Rosewood Takamine Classical guitar. This guitar was hardly ever played and, except for one small ding, looks brand new even tough its 15 years old. Plays well and has decent tone. I'm not a classical guy but I know a well made guitar when I see one. Nice quality instrument for not too much money. Molded hard case.

1999 Martin 000-28 Eric Clapton

$2,200
Just in. Time sure does fly. I remember when these first came out 19 years ago now. This one is, I believe, a 1999 and has a Fishman pickup and mic. Here's how Martin describes it: The Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton Signature Acoustic Guitar is handcrafted with a premium East Indian rosewood back and sides and a bookmatched top of select quartersawn Sitka spruce. Its smaller 000 body size and short...

1964 Gibson Firebird V

$14,000
Unbroken, unmessed with 64 Firebird V. Nice medium chunky neck profile with original frets in great shape. There is some light coil cord burn on the back but otherwise a very, very clean example. There is the usual small crack in the guard down by the tailpiece. I've never seen another FB that was this clean around the edges-they tend to whack into things but this one looks like it never left the...

1958 Gibson ES-335

$32,500
LOWER PRICE. Early unbound 58 ES-335 in very good plus condition. There is moderate checking but very little wear anywhere on the guitar. There is some very typical cracking around the jack. 58's do this and its usually just the top ply of the top. A great player and a tone monster. 58's are different than any other year. The top is thinner, the neck angle is shallower, the heel construction is...

1965 Gibson ES-335

$11,500
Most of us think of "model years" like we think about cars. We expect the changes from year to year to happen on a set date so we can identify a 64 from a 65 based on the changes that occurred from one year to the next. But that's not how it was at Gibson. There were serial numbers but they kept using the same ones over and over again. We assign "model years" as best we can based on features and...

1962 Gibson GA-78

$1,400
Gibson made a few iterations of their venerable 30 watt stereo amp. They made it with reverb, without reverb, with and without tremolo and had a few different nameplates as well: Gibson, Maestro and Bell. They were all pretty much the same amp with different features. The early tweeds had Jensen P10Qs but very quickly changed over to C10Qs. This one is a GA-78 which means no reverb but it has...

1956 Fender® Bandmaster

$11,500
It is just about impossible to find an original 5E7 Bandmaster anymore. To begin with, they didn't make all that many of them. Secondly, the output transformers were undersized and many, if not most, self destructed long before now. But every once in a while, one comes up that never got pushed to its limits and all the iron is still there and still working. Add to that original electronics...

1965 Fender® Showman®

$1,800
Like loud amps? 85 watts of tube driven goodness through the best speaker cabinet Fender ever made. The "tone ring" design was used in the early "piggy back" amps but was phased out (too expensive to make) in all amps except the single Showman by 1963. The Showman 15 is the pinnacle of clean tube amps. The speaker is a JBL D130F which handles 85 watts with one hand tied behind its back. This is...

1964 Fender® Pro

$2,200
Want a Vibroverb but you just can't see coughing up $5000? This is the same amp without the reverb. And less than half the price. This is almost completely original. A few caps have been done. Original trannies. The speaker is a later (70's?) JBL K130 which is very much like a D130F. The grill cloth is pretty dirty but its original (I haven't tried to clean it up). Tolex is very good with no...

1964 Gibson Firebird VII

$19,000
They only made around 175 '64 Firebird VII's and probably half of them have broken headstocks. Another quarter have probably been re-fretted with bigger wire. So how many survive with the original "fretless wonder" frets and a fully intact headstock? Not many, I'm sure. This is the second one I've had this year after not seeing an unbroken one for a decade. Chunky neck and wonderful playability....

1964 Gibson ES-335

$16,500
Just in from the original owner. Collector grade and clean, clean, clean. No wear, no dings, no scrapes, no nuttin. This guitar spent most of its life under the bed. Original frets in near perfect condition. Everything is pretty much just as it was when it was purchased in 1964. Only light finish checking keeps it from "mint" status. This guitar is equipped with a Bigsby and "Custom Made" plaque...
