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...

1927 Martin 2-17

$2,600
Very cool little Martin Parlor model 2-17. All mahogany including the binding. This thing is LOUD. Neck re-set has been done so it plays great. Original bar type frets with plenty of life left. Moderate player wear around the sound hole but no cracks. Modern hard case.

1957 Fender® Deluxe

$4,500
Super clean 57 tweed Deluxe. Original everything except for a three prong power cord. Original caps (all of them), speaker, trannies, tweed, grill cloth, pots, handle (includes a repro on the amp) and tubes (all of them). A bit of minor water staining to the tweed keeps it from near mint status. Tweed shows very little fraying (bottom right corner). This is a collector grade amp that you could...

1962 Gibson ES-335

Call
One owner 1962 ES-335 with sealed PAFs. This guitar has been re-fretted and has been played most of its life but has very little wear. This guitar was well cared for. This guitar is one of the most resonant 335's I've ever encountered. Unplugged, it's as loud as most full hollow 330's. Not exactly sure why-it has the solid center block-no cutout. Plugged in, it's a stellar example. The neck is...

1964 Gibson ES-335

Call
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

$4,500
Brazilian D-28 from 1967. Plays great, sounds great looks pretty good too. Some top wear but no cracks that I can see in the body. 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.

1955 Fender® Bandmaster

$11,000
Very clean and original tweed first year narrow panel Bandmaster-one of the first made. Original trannies and Jensen P10R speakers. A few changed caps but that's all. Bandmasters are very tough to find in original condition. I've had only two in the past 5 years and I'm always looking for them. More photos coming.

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...

1960 Gibson ES-335

$36,000
What separates a really good dot neck from a great one? Most sound really great and play beautifully but some just seem to stand out from the crowd. This one checks all the boxes. Hot original PAFs (8.39K and 8.05K), original frets (in great shape), a perfect neck profile (the same medium chunky neck as a late 59), some nice figure in the top but not too much, 9+ condition with no wear at all and...

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...

1964 Gibson Firebird III

$7,000
64 Reverse Firebird III in very good shape. No breaks or repairs and all original. Neck is fairly slim (wide nut) for a Firebird if that's your cup of tea. Some have humongous necks-this isn't one of them. Lower corner of the guard is broken off but that's pretty typical. The rest of the guard is intact and in good shape. A no excuses FB III at a reasonable price. Original case with all the...

1966 Vox Bulldog

$1,200
The Bulldog was Vox's attempt to cash in on the popularity of the Mosrite Ventures model-except that the Mosrite Ventures model wasn't all that popular, so neither was this. Still, it's a pretty cool design even if it's totally derivative. Skinny neck like a Mosrite, metal nut like a Mosrite but other wise kind of Strat like with three pickups. It a pretty well built guitar and it plays very...

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...

2016 Ken McKay Sunrise 335

$7,500
I have asked Ken McKay to make a run of his semi hollow thin body guitars for me. There will be 6 of them made to the specs of the worlds fussiest 335 enthusiast...me. Other than the fact they will have Ken's name on them rather than Gibson's, you probably won't be able to tell one from a real 59. If there is a particular color you want. Let me know and I can have one made in that color for you....

1963 Epiphone Crestwood

$4,900
This is a 1963 Epiphone Crestwood made at the Gibson Kalamazoo factory. Talk about under appreciated--the solid body Epiphones from the early Gibson era (1959-1963) are great guitars. They are lightweight and very stylish. It's basically a double cut Telecaster shape with rounded body edges. The Crestwood was the top of the line at this time and sported a pair of mini hum buckers, ABR-1 bridge...

1958 Gibson J-160E

$3,200
Rode hard for sure, this 58 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...

1961 Fender® Concert

$3,600
The Fender Concert is a pretty interesting amp. It is the successor to the venerable 4-10 Bassman and the predecessor of the 4-10 Super Reverb. There are a few varieties of the Concert and if you want one that sounds good, you would want the version that came with 4 Jensen P10Q's rather than those horrible Oxfords. The problem is that Jensen P10Q's have gotten so ridiculously expensive that most...

1968 Fender® Pro Reverb

$3,000
Pro Reverbs are vastly underrated. It's not just a "baby Twin" since it has a tube rectifier and a Twin has a solid state. It's a great amp with a tone palette all its own. This one is dead mint. Museum quality. Right out of the box factory fresh brand new condition. I'm not kidding. Bought from a church closet. 100% original down to the tubes. Original cover too. And it doesn't have those awful...

1959 Gibson ES-335

$36,000
Early (April) 59 ES-335. This has all the features you want-great big round fat neck, PAF's, stop tail, thin top. Just re-fretted. This guitar had Grovers at some point but has no additional holes and the enlarged shaft holes were properly dowelled. Vintage correct Klusons with original tips are back on. Neck angle is good-plenty of adjustment room on the bridge. Excellent fat tone and great...

1960 Gibson ES-335

$38,000
Super clean and bright and shiny fairly early 60 ES-335 with the more desirable 59 features. Original but for a set of Uncle Lou tips-good luck finding 59-60 Klusons without shrunken tips. I'm calling it near mint and I'm pretty conservative when it comes to grading. This is a collector grade piece. Neck profile is transitional-not like a huge early 59 and not like the ultra slim 61 either. Call...

1965 Gibson Trini Lopez Standard

$7,000
Very early Trini Lopez Standard. Only the early ones got the bigger neck and wide (1 11/16") nut like a 64 335. All the hardware is nickel which is a 64/65 only feature. Pickups are pre T-top with the purple windings like a PAF. There are a few issues but nothing to get too upset about. It had Grovers installed and now has vintage correct strip Klusons. Lots of checking but not a whole lot of...

1964 Gibson ES-345

$9,800
This 64 ES-345 is bone stock. Still stereo, still has the Varitone and still a factory stop tail. Never had a Bigsby, never had Grovers, never modded in any way other than a re-fret. Nice medium neck profile that gets pretty chunky by the 12th fret that 64's are famous for. With stop tail 64 ES-335's listing at well over $20,000, a 345 starts making sense as an alternative for the player who...

1959 Fender® Jazzmaster™

$7,500
This one got played plenty and it's got the usual battle scars to prove it. It's probably one of the first Jazzmasters to get the plastic tortoise guard. as most 59's have the gold anodized guard. Everything is original except for the high E tuner. The original is in the case with a half broken shaft. It still works fine but the repro will be more durable. Neck is straight, action is low and the...

1960 Gibson GA-80 Varitone

$1,250
This is a very rare amp. And an unusual one as well. It is a 2 channel 25 watt (more or less) amp with a single 15" speaker. One channel is your normal volume treble and tone controls. Channel Two has tremolo and 6 switches. Switch one gives you normal tone control from the rotary pot. Switches 2-6 are pre-set tones set at the factory-much like the Varitone in an ES 345 or 355. This is only the...

1964 Fender® Vibroverb

$4,200
Clean 64 Vibroverb. Speaker is not original (it's an Eminence from 65). Original trannies. A few caps have been changed. Sounds awesome. A couple of small tears in the grill cloth and some scuffs to the Tolex but plenty of life left in this one.

1960 Gibson ES-335 TDN

All original, near mint '60 ES-335 in blonde. These are getting impossible to find in this condition. Best blonde 335 on the market. Factory sealed zebra PAFs and original brown case.

1959 Fender® Bassman®

$10,000
Super clean and original 59 5F6-A Fender Bassman. It has all of its original components-caps, transformers and speakers. Only the cones have been replaced. All 4 P10R speakers are date coded 1959 and the tubes are old stock. The 3 preamp tube sockets appear to have been replaced. The tweed is original and in very good shape-some fraying at the bottom but cleaner than most for sure. Panel is so...

1964 Gibson ES-335

$12,500
This 64 does everything a 64 ES-335 is supposed to do. Plays great, looks cool, sounds awesome and costs an arm and a ...wait a minute... this one is only $12500. What gives? Well, it's got a couple of issues but nothing to scare you away. It's got Grovers. It is a factory stop tail but had a Bigsby at some point. The tailpiece is a lightweight repro. The original bridge posts were replaced with...
