• ~1934 Rickenbacher Ken Roberts

    Guitar Early - mid '30's Rickenbacher Ken Roberts model. This is the second electric spanish guitar. Or maybe not; there are several others known to exist, half a dozen anyway, so this then is one of the very small handful of these that were made, this quite possibly being the first of those, not long after the prototype in 1932. To be accurate, the brand name on the prototype was different, though it derives from the names of some of the same folks that became the Rickenbacher company, and it also wasn't as catchy a name; neither of which is nearly as important or interesting as the departure that these few guitars represent, from any previous concepts or attempts to electrify the guitar, and all that were to follow. To be fair, the significance of this guitar isn't nearly that of the prototype, which definitively marked a water shed moment in the direction and influence of the guitar on nearly all popular music forms. Then again, it is half the price..
  • 1964 Gibson J-45

    Guitar Another outstanding J-45, this one's from 1964 and is in extremely fine condition, with a brilliant cherry sunburst finish that has even more red in it than appears in the pics. 1 11/16" nut width and upgraded from the original plastic adjustable bridge & saddle to the far superior wood bridge and traditional saddle, which has about 900% more contact with the bottom of the slot that it's seated in, which some of these shipped with originally. A GREAT sounding J-45 in close to near mint condition.
  • 1944 Gibson Banner J-45

    Guitar Superlative & scarce 1944 Banner J-45 in exceptionally fine condition, rare original maple body and neck with spruce top. Hands down the best J-45 I've had the pleasure of playing, no doubt owing to the maple. Rare for '44, this one's got a truss rod - that's never been turned. Hard to say which is cleaner, the guitar or it's original hard shell case. This one's got it all boys, as good as it gets for a J-45. The maple back, sides and neck are unusual for Gibson, at least on flat tops. It's really only a few of their best known, top of the line models, like the J-200 ( other than the first 100, which were rosewood ) & Nick Lucas ( other than the less desirable versions ), that used maple for those components. Yup, just those. No others. Oh yeah - except for all of the greatest Gibson archtops ever made, that is; the L-5, Super 400, Byrdland, Johnny Smith, Citation, & Trini Lopez ( kidding ). But wait - weren't the '20's F-5s made of the same materials, including nearly all of the Loars? Point is, some folks look down on the small number of original Banner J-45s that were maple, which must suck for them; for the same reasons and in the same ways as all of these other Gibson instruments that used these same materials, the maple J-45s are exceptional guitars. You'll rarely find an early J-45 in this condition ( sorry about the reflections ), on top of the sound and playability of this one.
  • 59th Anniversary Firebird V

    Guitar Like new 50th anniversary Firebird V with original case, unsigned Warranty card. Very nice.
  • 1987 Gibson SG

    Guitar '87 / '61 reissue SG, excellent condition and Tim Shaw pickups. No issues, plays great, ships with hard shell case.
  • First Year Moderne Reissue

    Guitar 1982, so first year of production and also the time period when Tim Shaw pickups prevail. Black, too, and original case. These first reissues were Korina, just like the originals.
  • circa 1965 Hofner Beatle Basses

    Guitar Two circa 1965 Hofner Beatle Basses, two different looks for some reason, hopefully one appeals to you.
  • Gretsch 6120 with MASSIVE flame

    Guitar 2005 but still looking new, crazy figured maple!
  • 2006 & 2007 Gretsch Country Gentlemen

    Guitar As in two of them ( 2006 & 2007 ). It's plural man. Anyway, this seems to be the trend here lately; late model guitars that look like they never left the factory. Or something like that. New / unplayed condition, one with F holes, one without. It's a great look either way, no?
  • John Lennon Rick 325 - 1990

  • 2002 USA Vintage Reissue Jaguar

    Guitar Another older guitar that looks like it was never played. Correct original case and all paperwork / tags/ candy. BTW - It plays great.
  • 1971 Manuel Contreras

    Guitar This guitar is essentially in new condition, or very close to it. Beautiful tight, straight grain Brazilian rosewood and amazingly even, tight grain spruce. 664 mm scale length or there abouts, 52 mm nut width. As soon as I learn how to play classical guitar I'll post my impressions of it.
  • MARTIN 000-28EC

    Guitar Take your pick; natural or shaded top, both in new condition. Of all the Martin 000-28EC models I've seen, these are definitely the most recent. Ok, not funny. Actually one is from 2011 and the other 2018. These are wonderful instruments. Buy one today. Or two.
  • 1986 GUILD D-66

    Guitar Designed in conjunction with George Gruhn, the D-66 is one of the best sounding flattops Guild ever made. Rosewood, spruce, mahogany & ebony, and relatively ornate too.
  • 1966 Gibson J-160E

    Guitar Cleanest one I've ever had, or seen for that matter. 1966 Gibson J-160E that plays like a dream and sounds quite good. Clean as a pin, as they say. Near - mint condition. And yet... it's stamped as a factory second with the usual numeral 2 on the back of the headstock. Go figure.
