1960 Gibson ES-345

$20,000
Here's a very attractive red 60 ES-345. It has a beautiful unfaded red finish that is original and shows no checking at all. It is in 8.5/10 condition-the only wear/damage of note is some coil cord rash in a few spots on the back only. It looks like someone tried to touch them up with clear lacquer without much success. The top is near perfect with only some light pick scratches and a small ding...

1964 Gibson ES-335

$18,500
When did block neck 335's get so pricey? A minute ago, a collector grade 63 or 64 was $22K. Now I'm seeing player grades at that price and no issue ones at $26K or more. Fortunately (for you) I've got a few block necks with some minor issues that'll put a stop tail block neck back into your budget. This red 64 is a stunner. Great color and character and a great player. So, why isn't it $25K? A...

1959 Gibson ES-355

$16,750
Get your inner Keef on with this one. It's a 59 ES-355 that has been refinished long ago in black at the Gibson factory. A factory refinish makes a difference to some buyers and not to others. There was a 60 345 that was a factory refinish for sale for over $100K maybe 2 years ago. I don't think he got it but that's a far cry from what i'm asking. There was a smile crack that was repaired long,...

1960 Fender Bassman

$9,000
This Bassman is a very late 60 and thus has the P10Q speakers which are able to handle the 45 watts a little better than the R's. All four are date coded late 1960 and all four still have their original cones. That's pretty unusual because Jensen cones are not very heavy and really don't hold up very well over decades. If you want to gig this amp, have them re-coned. The amp has been completely...

1960 Fender Bassman

$4,400
First things first. This amp has been re-tweeded. Decent enough job. Re-grilled as well. Next, the speakers are vintage Jensen P10R's-all from the 50 or early 60's. Fender only used blue back Jensens. This amp has two silver backs (with bells) and a bronze colored one and a black one. Cones appear to be original in the silver ones. Not sure about the other two. Good news: the panel is near...

1959 Gretsch White Falcon

$14,000
Single cut Falcons are not common. These were stupid expensive (over $850 with the case which is over $7000 in 2020 dollars) back in their day and they didn't sell a whole lot of them. There were a couple of versions-this was the pricey one-the "Super Project-O-Sonic" which has a somewhat unusual stereo circuit which splits the low strings form the high strings rather than splitting the...

1958 Fender Bassman 5F6-A

$10,000
Nothing like a 5F6-A Bassman. These are getting harder to find in unmolested condition. This one is 95% original with only some changed caps, new handle and re-coned speakers. All P10R speakers date to late 57. All were re-coned with vintage correct cones (which are stupid expensive). Tweed and grill cloth are original. Looks to have had wheels at some point (screw holes in the bottom). Sounds...

1969 Gibson ES-335 16 % off
Factory black 335's are about as rare as rare gets. I know of a 59, a 60, a 66 and now this 69. I'd be surprised if there are more than a dozen pre Norlin black 335's. They were, of course available only by special order. This one has a minor issue or two but the important elements are all there. It is a factory Bigsby that has been converted to a stop tail. There is no doubt that the finish is...

1960 Gibson ES-335

$95,000
This guitar came to me as a consignment and I liked it so much, I bought it myself. This no issue, no excuse, collector grade 1960 factory blonde ES-335 is about as good as it gets. The top finish has darkened to a rich amber and shows almost no wear and only very fine checking. It is all original including the frets. The tuner tips look to be original but they could be older Uncle Lou re-tips....

1961 Epiphone Wilshire

$6,500
Perhaps the most underrated guitar on earth. Folks fall over themselves for 68 Les Paul Goldtops at three times the price and twice the weight. The Epiphone Wilshire, along with the 68/69 LP Standard, are the only guitars made by Gibson in the 60's with P90's and an ABR-1/stoptail configuration. SG Special? Nope. Wraptail. LP Special double cut? Nope. Wraptail again. Those who know me know that I...

1957 Gibson ES-350

$9,000
All original 1957 ES-350T. Before you go completely nuts when you see the back of the PAFs, remember that these are both narrow spaced PAFs and they are very early. The covers are brushed stainless steel-not nickel plated and there are no stickers. The thing that's going to make you doubt the authenticity is the base plate but look closely. You can see that the extra set of pole screw holes is...

1960 Gibson Les Paul Standard 11 % off
Why would anyone buy a refinished Les Paul burst? Simple. Because you think spending $300,000 or more on a guitar is slightly loony and if you must have a burst, you can get all the tone goodness and all the good looks from one that has been competently refinished while retaining all the parts. Will it appreciate as much as an all original one? Probably not. Will it always be desirable? Well as...

1964 Gibson ES-335

$20,000
It's getting really hard to find "Golden Era" Gibsons with original frets. I was happy to see this 64 show up in 9/10 condition and original frets. All parts are either original or vintage correct. Never had a Bigsby. The tuners are Kluson double line and they are likely original even though it shows that it once had Schallers. Late 64's had double lines. Early to mid 64's had single lines. You...

1958 Gibson ES-335

$25,000
This is one of the first 50 ES-335s made. It dates to mid 58 and shows all the features of the very first, mostly hand built 335's. For the geeks, that means pre Mickey Mouse ears (pointier), big heel, two piece tenon (although you can't see it), shallow neck angle, low profile ABR-1 and no neck binding. There are few minor issues. Tuner tips are replaced. Bigsby is from early to mid 60's. The...

2018 McKay 335 14 % off
Ken McKay is the best 335 builder out there. He makes a small number of these every year and he makes a few especially for my shop (to my specs). His 335 is an exact copy of a 1959 ES-335. The wood is sourced from the same mill in Michigan that Gibson used back when they were in Kalamazoo. The neck profile is typical of an early 59-big and fat at the first fret. Big and fat at the 12th. All...

1969 Gibson Les Paul

$14,500
The first reissue Les Paul gold tops were released in 1968 and are probably the best guitar to come out of the Gibson factory since 1965. The fat, wide neck was back. The original Les Paul body style was back and folks were buying them. But Gibson, being Gibson, couldn't leave well enough alone and started making changes in order to squeeze an extra dollar or two down to the bottom line. By early...

1967 Park 50

$7,000
This is an unusual amp. Most Park 50's I've seen have a solid state rectifier like a Marshall JMP. This must be an early one as it has a tube rectifier but was originally set up with EL34's like a black flag JTM 50. The previous owner modded it to run 6L6's or KT 66's but its easy to put it back to stock-one resistor has to be changed and the amp re-biased. The amp sounds more like a JTM 45 than...

1960 Gibson ES-345 17 % off
If you've been waiting for a blonde 345, you've been waiting for awhile. This is the first one I've seen in over a year. They simply don't come up for sale very often and with good reason. They only made 50 of them. Four times rarer than a blonde 335. This is a mid year 60 with a factory Bigsby with pearl dots over the stud bushings. All parts are original except for one tuner tip. Neck profile...

1959 Gibson ES-335

This is the "A" Rack at OK Guitars. These are the rarest ones and the greatest ones. Every guitar in the first photo is a 58, 59 or 60. You want rare? There is a black 59 345 (one of 5), there are 2 red 345's (2 of 9), there are two stop tail 59 ES-355's (2 of 5), there are three blondes-a 59 and a 60 ES-335 and a 59 345. Then there are two sunburst 59's and a late 58. If there's a 58 to 64...

2018 McKay Dot 58 335 23 % off
I asked Ken McKay-the best 335 builder out there-to make a 58 for me and here it is. It is the only one in existence. Like a 58 ES-335, it has a thin top (3 ply instead of four) but has internal reinforcement at the jack to keep it from being damaged by any tension on the plug when in use. Something Gibson should have done. Like an early 58, it has no neck binding. It looks like a 58 and it plays...

1959 Fender Bassman

$10,500
Mostly original 1959 5F6-A Bassman. Filter and a few coupling caps were done but that's about it. The speakers are the original P10R's. Transformers are all original. The cones all have matching codes but may have been re-coned decades ago. Certainly not recently. The tweed is a bit ratty as is the grill cloth but they are original. Vintage TungSol power tubes. Panel is super clean. This amp is...

1959 Gibson EB-2

Call
Very clean late 1959 EB-2 (335 bass). Powerful (and very loud) original mud bucker pickup. Big fat neck and nothing changed except for three of the tuner tips. Don't dismiss these basses. They may not be as versatile as some but they are big and bold sounding. Non original case has been re-covered and is partially stripped (top). It still works great though.

1952 Fender Telecaster 31 % off
Great player, this one, but it's got some issues. The neck appears to be oversprayed but not the fingerboard. The body finish is another story -It black lights properly and shows quite a lot of checking but I'm certain it's an old refinish. The edges of the body are a little too square which indicates sanding to me. There is a small area under the guard where the finish was sanded off-no idea...

1961 Fender 6G9 Tremolux

$6,000
Once every few years, I come across one of these. White Tremolux? Great amp but a dime a dozen. Wait, what are those power tubes? EL-84's? Like a Vox or a little Marshall? No way, Fender never used those. Well, yes they did in 1961 for about a minute and a half. Estimates are that about 200 were made. That makes this the rarest production Fender amp there is. I've had two of these in the past 5...
