2020 Waterloo WL-K TR

$3,050
Here we have a brand new 2020 Waterloo WL-KTR. Every time we get another Waterloo model in the shop, it seems to become our new favorite guitar. It’s not that we’re fickle, but each one that comes in always blows us away with its unique nuances. The WL-K is Waterloo’s take on the revered 1930s Kel Kroydon model made by Gibson. It sounds great out of the box, but its only going to get better as...

1986 Hamer Steve Stevens I (factory autographed)

$5,499
Here we have a killer 1986 Hamer Steve Stevens I guitar signed by the man himself. And it’s gold sparkle. Just sayin’. This is one of only five Steven Stevens guitars which were factory autographed. The signature is actually underneath the clear coat so it’s still as vibrant today as when it came out of the factory. Basic Specs: All black hardware. Hamer tuners. 1 11/16 inch Floyd Rose clamp...

1957 Gretsch 6192 Country Club

We rarely see this much documentation with a guitar from the 50s. It’s a nice thing to...

1958 Gibson ES-225T

$3,199
Here we have a 1958 Gibson ES-225T in truly excellent condition. One of the cleanest 50s Gibsons we’ve had in the shop. Some light hardly noticeable playwear and a few micro-dings that are hard to find, otherwise this one looks like it just arrived from the factory. All original and collector grade condition, but it’s such a nice sounding, great playing guitar that we can only hope it goes to...

$2,499
Here we have a 1979 Rickenbacker 4001 bass in Fireglo finish. This bass is in excellent all-original condition minus a couple of tiny dings and some finish loss on the back. The Fireglo finish is vibrant and the overall appearance of this bass is outstanding. A really fine example of a late 70s 4001 Ricky. Basic Specs: Nickel tuners. 1 11/16 inch nut width. Maple neck with a 33.5 inch scale...

1982 Dean Baby V

$1,499
Here we have a 1982 Dean Baby V that is just too cool for words. Nearly 40 years old but still looking sharp. All original, too. We hardly ever see these come available, so we’re kind of excited to have one in the shop. A diminutive version of the famous Flying V design with a rocking DiMarzio humbucker for full-size tone. Sounds amazing. And it weighs in at just over 5 pounds so you can play it...

1957 Supro Chicago 51 Amp

$899
Here we have a 1957 Supro Chicago 51 amp in very good to excellent vintage condition.

All original except for new tubes and a replaced speaker. The speaker is a Celestion Ten 30 that’s just perfect for this...

1933 Gibson L-Century

$5,499
Here we have a 1933 Gibson L-Century guitar which was made for the 1933-34 Century of Progress International Exposition, also known as The Chicago World’s Fair. The theme of the fair was technological innovation, and this Gibson has fingerboard and headstock overlays of celluloid which was a modern marvel at the time—looks like Mother-of-Pearl but more durable and completely man made. What’s most...

1940 Gibson J-35

$11,999
Here we have a 1940 Gibson J-35 that sounds truly heavenly. Plays great, too, with a hefty but not too big neck. (See Specs below.) The guitar had a neck reset performed by the esteemed luthiers at Portland Fretworks about six years ago. The condition is excellent considering the age of the instrument. There are a few small scattered dings and scratches, plus two small filled and re-touched...

~1979 Flatiron Model 1 Mandolin Left-Hand Conversion

$749
Here we have a circa 1970s Flatiron Model 1 “Army-Navy” style mandolin that’s been converted to left-hand orientation. We don’t deal in a lot of folk instruments but we’re fairly certain it dates to late 1970s, possibly very early 1980s. Normally Flatirons can be dated by serial number, but this one is stamped “Second” where the serial number would normally be. However, the label states “Handmade...

~1993 Squier Stratocaster

$299
Here we have a circa 1993 Squier Stratocaster for your viewing pleasure. The aesthetics of this guitar may not be for everyone (though we kinda like the pink and black), but a change of the pickguard turns this into whatever suits your own vibe. This made-in-Korea Squier from the early 90s is a real solid player and in good condition except for a patch of gouges where the headstock and neck meet....

~1990 Fender MIJ Jaguar

$999
Here we have a 1990s Fender Jaguar that’s sort of an unofficial “Roadworn” model. This one is made in Japan rather than Mexico, and it’s earned its roadworn look through good honest playing and perhaps a bit of home relic’ing. It’s in good playing condition and has a number of nice modfications which are called out below. Cosmetically, it’s a bit rough, but still has a cool vibe, kind of like a...

Here we have a circa 1966 Gibson ES-330 TDC for your consideration. Cherry Red finish with double-bound body, all wonderfully aged by the hands of time. Subtle and attractive finish checking.

1960 Magnatone Custom 206 hi fi

$1,499
Holy vibrato! Up for grabs a 1960 Magnatone Custom 260 hi-fi amp. This tube amp is renowned for its lovely true pitch shifting vibrato. Many vintage amps will be labeled vibrato but in reality are just a simple tremolo circuit. Not so with the Magnatone Custom 260. You have 2 channels of fantastic clean tones. Straight forward Bass and Treble eq. This amp does produce a lovely overdriven sound...

~2018 Fender Eric Johnson "Hybrid" Stratocaster

$1,199
Here we have a Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster we’re calling a “Hybrid” because a previous owner swapped a 2018 MIM Classic Series 60s style neck for the original Eric Johnson neck. Why? We don’t know for sure, but we’d have to assume it was a profile or comfort issue. The necks on the Fender Classic Series guitars are actually quite nice and have a 7.25 inch radius, whereas, the Eric Johnson...

~1920 J.R. Stewart Le Domino

$1,999
Here we have a 1920s J.R. Stewart X-braced Le Domino in rare Blonde finish. This is one of the best sounding examples we’ve had come through the shop and we have seen a number of them. Basic Specs: Nickel 3-on-a-plate tuners. 1 13/16 inch Bone nut. Maple or Mahogany neck with a 24.75 inch scale length. Neck depth of .86 inches at the first fret and 1.20 inches at the twelfth fret.

2008 Fender Roadworn '60s Stratocaster

$999
Here we have a 2008 Fender Roadworn ’60s Stratocaster in relic’ed Sunburst finish. These Roadworn Strats are really nice guitars. Machine relic’ed so every one of them looks the same, but it’s a good looking pattern of wear they chose for this model, so we don’t mind. What’s notable about these guitars is how great they sound and how nicely they play. This one has been upgraded with Fender Custom...

2019 Waterloo WL-S TR

$2,400
Here we have a new Waterloo WL-S TR in a Nitrocellulose Iced Tea Sunburst finish. This WL-S is ladder braced and comes equipped with a truss rod. We love the vintage tone these Waterloo models attain. Our only challenge with the Waterloo models is trying to decide which one we like best. They’re all beautifully made, great playing, and authentic sounding guitars, and we’re proud to be a Waterloo...

~1950 Stella Sundale

$499
Here we have another crazy cool Stella Sundale from the 1950s. These Stella Sundales are very similar to the Harmony Caribbean guitars but without the metal strip body trim. Harmony Guitar Company bought the Stella brand from Oscar Schmidt in the 1940s so that makes sense. Interestingly, you can see the faint outline of the Caribbean logo beneath the Stella Sundale logo on the headstock of this...

1992 Gibson J-200 JR

$3,499
Here we have a unique and wonderful 1992 Gibson J-200 JR with highly figured Maple back and sides. The guitar is in excellent condition with just light playwear throughout. Instead of the 17 inch lower bout of the standard J-200, the J-200 JR sports a 16 inch lower bout. The upper bout is also about an inch smaller, making it a much more comfortable guitar to play. Great eye appeal, but as...

1953 Fender 5B3 Tweed Deluxe

Here we have a 1953 Fender Deluxe Amp with wide panel cabinet and 5B3 circuit. Killer amp and all-original except for some replaced caps and tubes plus the all important 3-prong cable upgrade.
