1960 Fender® Stratocaster®

$17,500
Slab board Stratocaster that plays great, sounds great but ain't exactly much of a looker. There's wear where there should be wear on a guitar that's been played its entire life. All the players were kind enough to keep their nails trimmed because the fingerboard is in great shape (one of my pet peeves) and the fret job is excellent. Still has its original three way that's a little stiff but...

1959 Fender® Super

Call
All original 1959 tweed 5F4 (6L6) Fender Super. Original tweed, trannies, speaker (P10Rs). Filter and coupling caps done. Original tone caps. Original 2 prong AC. It's pretty hard to find these in this condition. These were (supposedly) Leo Fender's favorite amp. Light weight, 26 watts and tone to die for. Handle has been replaced.

1959 Martin 00-28G

$3,950
Super clean and crack free, this 0028G (nylon string classical) has barely been played over its 57 year lifetime. It has had two owners and spent an inordinate amount of time under a bed in its case. The body is absolutely stunning Brazilian rosewood. The neck is arrow straight and the guitar plays beautifully. Quite possibly the cleanest in existence. I'm not a big nylon string guy but this...

1959 Gibson ES-5 Switchmaster

$14,000
The year 1959 was a special one at Gibson. They didn't know it then but 59 is considered the pinnacle of the Golden Era of Gibson guitars. The ES-5 Switchmaster sat near the top of the line. They only shipped 33 of them in blonde in 1959, so if you've been looking for one that hasn't been scavenged or modded, this is it. The guitar is original with the exception of the bridge which is from the...

1959 Fender® Super

$5,500
Killer tweed Super (6L6 version). The cabinet is perfectly retweeded but the guts are 100% right down to the filter caps. Most of these have replaced output transformers but the original is still in this one. Amp is loaded with a pair of '56 P10Qs. It would have come with P10Rs but they can barely handle the 26 watts, so the Q's are simply a better choice. You want R's, I'll put in a set of 59...

1961 Gibson ES-335

$7,500
Not for the collector. This one has had an interesting life but it still plays great and sounds great and looks great. I bought this guitar more than 10 years ago from a seller who insisted it was a refinished factory red 59. He was a fraud and a liar. He knows who he is. But, it was a great guitar and I owned it for a number of years. I sold it locally to a player who enjoyed it for a number of...

1964 Gibson ES-335

$11,000
Well played player grade ES-335 Bigsby/Custom Made. Big 64 neck profile from mid 64 (May). Unopened patent number pickups, uncut center block, all original parts. Refretted. Guitar shows moderate to heavy player wear and some buckle rash but you're buying it to play, not to look at. The finish is gone from the back of the neck-looks like somebody did that intentionally (must have been a Strat...

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...

1957 Guild® Master Amp 66-J

$1,100
One owner 12 watt Guild 66-J from 1957. It is a time capsule. Nothing has been touched. All original down to the last cap. Never serviced-never needed it. Original tubes as well-all RCA (6V6 power). This is not dissimilar to a tweed Deluxe (with tremolo). This seems to have a little more headroom (and a real tone stack) than a Deluxe. Handle is original but should be replaced before it breaks-it...

1952 Gibson LES PAUL

$16,000
Collector grade 1952 Les Paul gold top that apparently didn't get played much because its in such great shape. Finish shines like new and the gold is vibrant with no greening or wear-just some minor checking and a few assorted dings but hey, I'm the same age as this guitar and I'm in much worse shape. There is some buckle worming on the back so we know it got played at some point in its life....

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...

1960 Fender® Bassman®

$12,000
Early 60 Bassman 98% original and a killer amp. The original tweed is in excellent condition with a few scuffs and abrasions but these were generally gigging amps and they took their knocks. Original grill cloth with no damage or sag. All four speakers are original with the original harness and plugs, although one has likely been re-coned as the cone code doesn't match the others. Filter caps and...

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 Gibson ES-335

$13,500
Nice, clean and mostly original Bigsby only ES-335 from 1964. Original patent number pickups (double black leads and purple windings-just like a PAF). All parts are original except for the tuners which are gold patent pending Grovers. There are two tiny pin sized holes behind the bridge-probably from someone putting a "Custom Made" plaque on it (even though there are no stop tail studs to cover)....

1959 Gibson J-45

$5,000
Ask anybody who is a guitar lover what the best of the best years is for Gibsons and you will get the same answer every time. 1959. 59 burst? Worth more than a 58 or 60. Same with dot neck 335's, same with 345's and 355's. Well, they were making acoustics in 59 as well and they are great. The 30's and 40's acoustics get all the glory and lots of folks turn up their noses at the adjustable saddle...

1962 Gibson ES-335

$19,000
All original 1962 block neck stop tail 335. Wide slim neck, one PAF and one patent number and factory stop tail. What's not to like. 62 was a great year for 335's. Tone wise they will hold their own with the more coveted (and expensive) dot necks. This is the "sleeper" year for 335's and they are just great. If you one of those who think a big fat neck is necessary for great tone, you haven't...

1964 Gibson ES-335

$19,500
Super clean and vibrant 1964 stop tail ES-335. All your friends have red ones because they run with the pack. You really want the sunburst and this is as clean as they come. Unusual two piece top and back (unusual for 64 anyway-pretty common in dot necks). Original patent number pickups. Medium chunky neck and 100% no excuses original right down to the frets. This is a no issue, near mint...

1960 Gibson ES-345

Call
Who doesn't like a factory stop tail watermelon red ES 345? This stunning creature has some minor parts changes but is mostly original. The finish is original as are the frets. Reproduction long guard with the original bracket. Original plastic (knobs, TRC, switch tip). It has been converted to mono (335) using the original 1960 harness. The choke and Varitone switch are included in the case. ...

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....

1961 Fender® Deluxe

$3,000
Very nice mostly original Brown Fender Deluxe. Pretty sure it's a 61 from the tranny date codes (and the leather handle which is a replacement). All original except the power cord (3 prong added) and the filter caps (they have the old paper covers over new ones) and the tubes. Oxford speaker appears original. Has a nice padded cover. These amps are very distinctive sounding. As you would expect...

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...

1967 Martin D-28

$5,500
Brazilian D-28 from 1967. Plays great, sounds great looks pretty good too. Some top wear but no cracks in the top. One repaired crack along the edge on the back. There are two surface cracks in the headstock-not through the headstock, not a break and not in the neck. It doesn't need to be repaired. Hasn't moved in decades and it isn't a significant issue.

2006 Lentz T

$3,000
Scott Lentz makes excellent guitars (and he's been making them forever, it seems). I knew him as a finish guy way back when he refinished a Les Paul for me. This model says Telecaster pretty loudly and really needs to get out more. Hardly played, it's waiting for a player to beat the crap out of it. Big fat 50's Tele type neck with a dark rosewood board. I'm not sure what he called this model...

1964 Gibson Country Western

$3,000
Big tone and a medium to chunky neck make this 64 Country Western a great guitar for the price. All original except for the tuners and the case. The guitar has had electronics added. There are a few minor repaired cracks in the top and some overall finish checking. This is a guitar for a player who wants real vintage tone for less than real vintage cost. Action is low and the guitar sounds great...

2009 Epiphone Wilshire

$1,900
Gibson has made lots of reissues-some more successful (and accurate) than others. They made 400 of these and just about nailed it. I've had at least 6 original 60's P90 Wilshires and this is just about dead on. I've got two of these-one red that has been played a few hours but is essentially brand new the other is white and is unplayed. Both come with all the case candy and paperwork. I don't...

2012 Ken McKay Sunrise 335

$6,000
Ken McKay makes the best ES-335 "tribute" guitars anywhere. This is one of the first and it's so accurate, I could convince you it was a real 59 ES-335. Even Gibson can't get this close. The neck profile is my own personal carve-like a 64 at the first fret (.86") and like a 59 at the 12th (1.00"). It is also slightly wider than any Gibson at 1.70". Fingerboard is a super dark piece of Brazilian...

1956 Gibson J-160E

$3,200
Rode hard for sure, this 56 J160-E has a lot of character. Heavily checked with moderate wear, it still plays great and sounds like a J160 should. Nails the Beatles tone. Replaced tuners and truss rod nut but everything else is original. Big fat neck profile. Modern Gator case.

1961 Gibson J-50

$4,000
Nice clean no issue 1961 J-50. Neck is wide and fairly slim but not too slim. No cracks or repairs and very light wear. A few scratches and dings but nothing glaring. This guitar has big tone-it's as loud as a J-200 with almost as much bass and mid response. No electronics or mods. Easy player and great tone.

1958 Gibson ES-335

$36,000
OK, figure this one out. The guitar has all the 58 features-shallow neck angle, big (and I mean huge) neck profile, thin top, shaved bridge, pat applied tuners (with original tips), etc, etc. Factory order number is also 58, so we know it was built in 58 (or at least started in 58). So, how did it get an early 60 serial number on the label? I've seen 58 FON's in mid 59-in fact I have one in my...
