1960 Gibson ES-355 Mono

$18,000
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 caused some...

1965 Gibson ES-335

$8,500
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 Gibson ES-335

Call
Late 59 ES-335 with the transitional medium neck. This seems to be the one folks really want-they talk about the big fat early ones but they really want to play this one. It is equipped with a Bigsby and has flat metal studs covering the holes as was typical in the late 50's and as late as 61. Others had pearl dots and later, the "Custom Made" plate. This looks better. Original PAFs. This guitar...

1964 Gibson ES-335

$15,500
Big fat neck on a stunningly clean 64. Factory Bigsby with stoptail bushings under the "Custom Made" plate. Recently re-fretted and Plek'd. Great player with great tone- as good as any 64 I've had. Barely a scrape to be seen an zero, none, nada checking. That's pretty unusual in a 50 plus year old guitar. Finish shines like new. Pickups (pat num. same as late PAF) measure at 7.9K and 7.89K. So,...

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...

1965 Fender® Telecaster®

$11,500
This 65 Telecaster is a great player, in great shape, all original and has the maple cap board. Even though the neck date is August 65, it still has a spaghetti logo. They must have had a few left (and Leo never wasted anything). Bridge pickup is a real screamer. Neck pickup is typical vintage Telecaster. Weight is just over 7.5 lbs. Pot codes are 18th week of 65. Frets may be original-hard to...

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...

1966 Fender® Princeton® Reverb

$2,100
Not for the collector but a great players PR from 1966. It has been completely recapped and is gig ready. The speaker is a date correct Jensen C10R but it probably isn't original as most PR's came with Oxfords which, IMO, are pretty crappy speakers so consider the Jenson to be an upgrade. All original transformers. AC cord is changed to three prong. There is an extra hole in the back of the...

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.

1954 Fender® Stratocaster® 50th Anniv. Masterbuilt

$4,800
2004 50th Anniversary 1954 Stratocaster built by Master Builder John Cruz. This guitar has been played very little in the past 13 years. I am selling for the original owner who played it for a few days and put it away as an investment. It comes with 2 cases (poodle case and molded case) and all the original case candy and paperwork. This guitar weighs 7 lbs 5 ounces. Here's what Fender had to say...

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

$2,400
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 original cone '65 Jensen C10Q's. Big difference. You want the originals? You can have...

1958 Gibson ES-335

$34,000
Incoming. 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...

1965 Gibson Firebird I

$2,900
Player grade 65 Firebird I (non reverse) with some really good upgrades to simply make it a better guitar. First off, you can't intonate with the original bridge very well, so that was changed to a Badass type so it has individually adjustable saddles. Then a Bigsby B5 replaced that awful Maestro short trem. The slide switch pickup selector is gone replaced by a proper 3 way-all good mods. Knobs...

1960 Gibson ES-355

$15,000
This one owner ES-355 (stereo version) isn't typical of an early 60. The neck profile on the 355 got very thin by mid 1959. The big neck 59 355's are rare and very much in demand, so when I bought this early 60, sight unseen, I expected that thin neck. But nooooo. It's got the big 59 profile-.86" behind the first fret and .98" at the 12th. This guitar has a 59 factory order number which might...

1961 Gretsch® 6120

$10,500
Near mint 61 Gretsch 6120-last of the single cuts. There is hardly a mark on this guitar. Plays beautifully and sounds wonderful. I generally am not a Gretsch guy but I took this guitar in trade-it was simply too good to pass up. The cowboy case completes this fabulous package. Get in touch with your inner Eddie Cochran.

1960 Fender® Stratocaster®

$17,500
Slab board Stratocaster that plays great, sounds great but ain't exactly a beauty queen but it still looks pretty good for an old girl. 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...

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...

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...
