2018 McKay Dot 58 335

$7,800
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 5F6-A

$10,000
I seem to be accumulating a lot of these which is fine by me-it's only the best guitar amp ever made, IMO. It's loud, so it's not for everybody but it's clean and sensitive at low volume and literally wails at high volume. At 45 watts, it's kind of a monster but it will behave at lower volume. This one has original tweed that's a bit ratty and looks like somebody might have glued something to the...

2014 Collings 0001 Mh

$4,000
Real nice near mint Collings 0001 Mh all mahogany acoustic-no electronics. Has a couple of really tiny capo marks on the back of the neck and that's it. No wear, no scrapes or dents. Great playing little guitar with big, warm sound. Waverly tuners, high end Collings badged case.

1959 Gibson ES-330T

$5,500
So, you really want a 59 Gibson but they're all out of reach and you don't want a beater or a busted headstock. Try this-it's a 59 ES-330T. It has the later 59 transitional medium neck which most people find perfect. It is the one pickup model and is all original with the exception of the tuners (originals in the case) and the case (later 80's). There is no serial number nor is there a Factory...

1965 Gibson ES-335

$9,500
Wide nut big neck mid year 65. All nickel parts except pickup covers. All original. Sealed patent number pickups-they could be the early ones which are identical to PAFs or the later pre T-tops with the poly windings. Both good pickups. They would not be T-tops. Contrary to what everyone seems to think, there are no T-tops on 65 ES-335's. You could open them and know for sure but I'll let you do...

~1944 Gibson L-00

$7,200
Collector grade, no issue wartime L-00. No wear, no cracks, only light checking. Neck has never been reset and action is still very good. Wartime Gibsons often had no truss rods as the metal was allocated to the war effort. In fact, Gibson supposedly wasn't supposed to be making guitars at all during 43 and 44. This has the "only a Gibson is good enough" motto on the headstock which is not common...

1961 Gibson ES-335

$18,000
So, you really want a long guard dot neck but you can't spring for a 60. A 61 is affordable but it has the short guard. Good news. The earliest 61's (and not very many) got a lot of the 60 features-like the long guard and the amber switch tip. This early, early January 61 has a 1960 factory order number so it was actually built in 1960 but was shipped in January 61. You can call it a 61 or you...

1960 Fender Concert

$2,100
Clean 1960 Brownface Fender Concert with a few changes. Most brown Concerts came with Oxford speakers which I really don't like. This one has been loaded with two new Celestion G10 Greenbacks and two new Celestion golds. It's a great combination for a gigging amp. Most of the guts are original. Only 3 caps and two resistors have been changed. The electrolytic caps should be done eventually but...

1961 Fender Bassman 6G6

$3,200
These are pretty tough to come by. Plenty of "A" and "B" circuits out there but the original tube rectified version wasn't made for very long. These early ones had a single 12" speaker in a tone ring cabinet (like a Showman) which is an excellent design. Speaker is the original (re-coned) Oxford 12M6. Yeah, the A and B circuit is a great circuit but that solid state rectifier makes them a little...

1959 Gibson ES-335

$41,000
Nice clean fairly early (May) 1959 ES-335. Big 59 neck but not a baseball bat and not the smaller "transitional" neck, either. Has repro tuners on it and the originals are in the case with shrunken tips. This guitar is all original except for the frets which were done recently by Norio Imai-the best fret guy on the East Coast. No issues. Some fine checking and minor player wear on the neck....

1999 Rickenbacker 360-12V64

$2,300
This guitar was given as a gift nearly 20 years ago and never played. It is mint. This model is a 1999 reissue of the George Harrison 12 string. It is shaped like a 330 but is bound front and back and neck. These are somewhat rare and you hardly ever see them in Mapleglow. The necks on most Rickenbacker 12's are very slim and take some getting used to, so don't expect to be Roger McGuinn on Day...

1963 Gibson ES-345

$10,500
Bigsby/Custom Made 1963 ES-345. Nicely figured, very attractive sunburst. All original except that it has been converted to mono (335). Early patent number pickups (same as late PAF). Covers appear to have been replaced but are vintage correct. Neck profile is wide and slim . Condition is 8.5/10. Case is original black with gold Lifton in fair condition-could use some TLC.

1962 Gibson ES-335

$23,000
This is for the "dot neck snobs" (of whom I'm one). We think dot necks are the top of the 335 heap but every once in a while, a block neck (and usually a 62) comes along and proves that big necks and dot markers aren't necessary for a 335 to be great. This was bought from the original owner who played it for five years and then took it out once or twice a year and strummed it a few times and put...

1958 Gibson ES-335

$40,000
Stunningly clean very late 58 (last week of December) ES-335. It is the bound neck found on later 58's and has the best 58 features-thin top, huge neck (.91" first fret, .96" 12th). The neck angle is shallow but not nearly as shallow as the early 58's. The full size ABR-1 is only slightly milled on the treble side only. The guitar has the "2" designation on the headstock indicating that it went...

1959 Fender Pro

$4,250
Most under appreciated of the big tweeds, the Fender Pro is 26 watts of pure tweed tone. Oddly, the well loved 3-10" Bandmaster is the exact same amp section (different OT impedance). Sadly, 15" speakers have gone out of fashion and they shouldn't have. They are just great for hum bucker equipped guitars. This one has all its original iron and tone caps. The filter caps and coupling caps are...

1957 Fender Pro

$2,900
1957 Fender Pro 17 % off
Player grade 1957 Fender tweed Pro. The tweed is replaced (nice work). All of the transformers are Mercury Magnetics. It sounds just great with fairly early breakup with hum buckers-later with single coils. It is the same amp as the much more expensive (and rarer) 3-10" Bandmaster and 2-10" Super. At 26 watts, it's more practical than a tweed Bassman and sounds every bit as good when cranked....

1959 Fender Bassman

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

1968 Gibson Johnny Smith

$11,000
This guitar appears to be brand new, except that it's nearly 50 years old. It's an adult guitar owned by an adult and cared for like an adult would care for a guitar like this. And it's stunning. Ultra flamed maple back, neck and sides. Original everything. Nut is just over 1 3/4" which is really wide. This has to be the cleanest blonde Johnny out there. Sounds great too. But wait...there's more....

1963 Vox AC10

$3,000
1963 Vox AC10 14 % off
Lower Price. Very clean and very original 63 or early 64 Vox AC10. It has the basketweave Tolex but no corners and metal vents and brown grill cloth. Original blue frame Elac 10" speakers and all original trannies and caps (one or two might have been replaced). The only mod is a 1/4" jack on the back panel which isn't connected to anything. Sounds like a Vox should chimey and bright. Plenty of...

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.

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...

1952 Fender Telecaster

$23,000
This one is a little tricky. The neck appears to be oversprayed but not the fingerboard. The body finish appears original but three experts disagree-one says original, the other suspects overspray a very long time ago and the other says old refinish. It black lights perfectly and shows quite a lot of checking. There is a small area under the guard where the finish was sanded off-no idea why. My...

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

$16,000
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

$1,200
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...

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 Fender Bassman

$5,500
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. Rumor has it that Fender would re-cover your tweed amp in brown Tolex if you sent it...

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.
