1960 Fender® Deluxe

$3,800
Played but not abused. 98% original tweed Deluxe from 1960. The important stuff is all original-tweed, trannies, speaker (re-coned) and all the caps except for one filter cap. The handle has been replaced with a handmade reproduction. The 5E3 Deluxe is in a class by itself tone wise. Nothing else sounds like one. They don't have a lot of headroom but the breakup is sweet and musical (and early)....

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...

1960 Fender® Concert

$1,400
This is a 1960 Fender Concert. Date code is "JJ" or October of 1960. It has a few issues, so please read carefully. The cabinet is original but was painted black and then the paint was removed, so it's back to being brown. Not the prettiest Concert you will find. The grill cloth is replaced. The amp just came back from the shop and has all new filter and coupling caps. The tone caps are all...

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...

1964 Fender® Tremolux

$2,100
Pre CBS (Fender Electric) Tremolux amp from mid 1964. Mostly original-filter caps are done and the terrible Oxford speakers have been changed (lucky you) for an Eminence Ragin Cajun and Copperhead. Amp sounds great. A Tremolux is the identical circuit (without the reverb) to the way more expensive Vibrolux. For a little more than half the price of a comparable Vibrolux, you'll have enough left...

1960 Gibson ES-355 Mono

$16,500
Lower Price. Mono ES-355's are, essentially, a pimped out ES-335. Same construction, same circuit, same pickups. What's different? Fancy headstock, multi-ply bindings on the body, real MOP inlays and an ebony fingerboard. These are rare and desirable. This 1960 has light to moderate neck wear but is overall very nice. Pickups are PAFs (zebra in the neck). The pick guard has turned to dust and...

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...

1966 Fender® Pro Reverb

$2,000
Absolutely killer 66 Pro Reverb. These amps are way more than just a "baby Twin". With a tube rectifier, the headroom is a bit less and the breakup comes on around 5. This is the true "sleeper" of the Fender BF line. OK, they're kind of heavy but that's what roadies are for. 40 usable watts. This amp is mostly original (all trannies and tone caps) but has had the required maintenance (coupling...

1959 Fender® Bassman®

$6,000
I wish I could say this was a factory brown Bassman but it isn't. It's a 59 tweed that has been covered in Fender correct brown Tolex. That's the bad news. The good news is the amp is super clean and is is original but for the filter and coupling caps. I currently have five 59-60 Bassmans (Bassmen?) in the house and this is the best sounding of all. Currently, it's set up to gig with two vintage...

1951 Gibson ES-5

$6,000
Real nice player grade ES-5. It is all original and actually in really nice shape but it has a big fat repair at the output jack. That big black plate covers a big black hole. It's done well but it's there. If you're a player, you won't care and nobody will see it as the jack is on the side and not the top. Great tone and a real looker. 3 P90s can be tame when you want them to be or scream and...

1967 Fender® Princeton® Reverb

$2,200
Clean and mostly original 1967 Princeton Reverb with some minor issues and upgrades. The speaker is a '66 Jensen C10Q which is better speaker than the stock Oxford and handles the power better than the C10R that is sometimes the stock speaker. The filter caps have been done. The cord is changed to three prong grounded. The Power transformer is date coded 61 so it was replaced at some point. OT is...

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

$600
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...

1962 Gibson ES-335

$20,000
Super clean and near mint 1962 ES-335. Original PAFs unopened and unmolested. Guitar shines like new. 100% original down to the frets which are excellent. There is one issue: The bridge posts were moved back slightly to improve intonation (which it does). There are two small holes under the thumbwheels. They are not visible with the bridge mounted. The original case was soft case. It is being...

1968 Fender® Vibrolux® Reverb

$2,600
Vibroluxes got really popular recently and it's easy to see why. Early black line drip edge silver faces are still a relative bargain over their blackface brethren even though the circuit wasn't changed until later. Most of these came with Oxford speakers which I think are terrible, so I dropped in a pair of brand new Celestion Golds. Big difference. You want the originals? I'll put them back in...

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...

1960 Gibson ES-345

$13,000
Factory stop tail ES-345 in unfaded watermelon red. Condition is 9+ with only the wear on the gold parts keeping it from approaching 9.5. All hardware is original or vintage correct-short seam gold stop tail, no wire ABR-1, long studs, PAFs. Guitar had Grovers but now has a vintage correct set of single line single ring gold Klusons with new tips. Original plastic (knobs, TRC, switch tip) but has...

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...
