One of the distinctive traits of maple as a tonewood is its sonic transparency, which makes it wonderfully player-reflective. On this maple/spruce 614ce, a torrefied (specially roasted) Sitka spruce top and our tone-enhancing V-Class bracing take that natural versatility to a whole new level. Whatever the player brings to the guitar comes through—it can be played to sound warm or bright. The roasting process for the top elicits a more played-in tone, and together with the V-Class bracing gives the player a more expressive tool in the form of increased dynamic range, greater projection, longer sustaining notes, and more harmonic agreement with chords up the entire fretboard. The 614ce also stands out as one of the most touch-sensitive models in the entire Taylor acoustic line. Whether you play fingerstyle arrangements or strum in alternate tunings, whatever your preferred musical style, this guitar pays musical dividends on what you put into it. Aesthetic touches include a hand-rubbed Brown Sugar stain that highlights the rich figure of the maple back and sides, along with ebony binding, a paua abalone rosette trimmed with ebony and ivoroid, and our Wings fretboard and peghead inlays in grained ivoroid. The guitar ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.Learn More
It's a rare occurrence to come across a vintage guitar with provenance. Many guitars have stories, but few can be proved. The story behind this guitar is amazing, and is well documented. This prototype G&L ASAT Classic was built for Dale L. Hyatt who was a close friend and partner of Leo Fender in the G&L guitar company. Mr. Hyatt worked closely with George Fullerton and Leo Fender on designs. Mr. Hyatt kept prototype guitars in his office to get feedback from dealers and players, with the thought of using their input in future designs. This guitar is a prototype, made for Mr Hyatt in 1991. It has two features that are unique and non-standard. First is the intensely figured Birdseye Maple neck that is drop dead gorgeous. Hyatt had been working with Gulag Gidwani, the owner of an exotic wood supply company that specialized in providing high end woods to instrument manufactures. The wood on the neck was purchased specifically for this instrument from Gulag's inventory. The second unique feature is the special two-tone, black/chrome Schaller tuning machines. These tuners were out of a prototype batch of tuners made by Helmut Schaller and were custom made for Mr. Hyatt.Learn More
It was Mr. Hyatt who convinced Leo Fender to name this model "ASAT Classic" because he felt it was classic in the same vein as the ASAT, featuring more traditional specs. The guitar was kept by Mr. Hyatt after his retirement and later on passed to his son. It is mint, not tampered with, and unplayed. It is the only one on the planet. Comes with original G&L advertisement pages from the time, G&L brochure, a copy of the G&L handwritten production sheet from 1991 showing this guitar, documentation from Kenneth L. Hyatt, Dale's son, who still works for G&L, a photo of Mr Hyatt with the guitar, and original hard case.
This is an extremely rare and difficult to find 1985 Kramer Baretta Guitar-Art graphic guitar. The art work is the Fantasy Series, Galactic Rainbow. According to VintageKramer.com. "These were introduced in the banana head stock era, so some of these graphics are very rare because you don't see them often on banana head stock Kramers." The artist, Shannon Hall, is internationally recognized and is now the official artist for the John Lennon estate.Learn More
This guitar is in excellent, near MINT condition. The previous owner said this guitar was in storage for 22 years from 1995 to 2017. The guitar is obviously a case queen, just look at the fine tuners on the Floyd and you'll see there's no wear or oxidation on the black finish. It has been professionally setup with 9 gauge guitar strings and plays like a dream.
Condition: The guitar has only very light swirl marks, 1 check (clear coat finish crack) on the back. The checking line runs from the back neck plate to the trem cover plate. You have to hold the guitar in just the right light at just the right angle for it to be visible. You can barely see it. Photos barely capture it. You can feel the head stock scarf joint line, which is common on these guitars. The joint is strong and has lasted 32 years. It has a factory neck shim. This is also very common. There is no rust on the Floyd Rose tremolo or rust on any of the hardware. The frets are like new and in perfect condition. It's a collector's grade instrument. I can not see any noticeable dents, dings, or scratches.
It feels heavy, so we are confident that it is a maple body Baretta. The guitar has a #4 written under the pickup. I do not know what this is in reference to. The Schaller reverse zebra humbucker pickup is dated 1/85. The guitar is an early D serial, #D-2949.
This is an amazing sounding and playing guitar. The original era Kramer hard shell case is included. The case alone is rare, with key locks, and worth a lot of money. I have not seen another Kramer case like this one. We do not have the keys.
Buy it fast before another collector gets their hands on it.
Note: The volume knob is not original.

This luxurious rosewood/spruce acoustic-electric Grand Auditorium reaches new levels of performance thanks to Taylor's patented V-Class bracing. By coaxing a more orderly response from the top, this game-changing bracing design allows the 814ce DLX to produce more powerful notes everywhere on the fretboard, along with stronger projection, longer sustain, and improved intonation, creating a more musical and expressive playing experience for guitarists. The classic pairing of Indian rosewood and Sitka spruce sparkles with new intensity thanks to the new internal bracing architecture, bringing out more of rosewood’s naturally warm overtones and producing clear, bell-like highs. Premium details include a radius-style rosewood armrest and Gotoh 510 tuners that feature a precise 21:1 gear ratio, delivering an ultra-smooth playing experience. And with deluxe features like maple binding, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard and peghead inlays, a smoky ebony fretboard, rosewood top trim, and maple fretboard/peghead purfling lines, it's easy to see why the 814ce DLX is one of Taylor's most appealing rosewood models.Learn More

PRS Guitars is proud to offer the acclaimed McCarty 594 and McCarty Singlecut 594 with PRS/Seymour Duncan Soapbar pickups. McCarty 594 models were designed to rival the best vintage instruments, meticulously spec’d with a 24.594” scale length, Pattern Vintage neck carve, tweaked Phase III locking tuners with modified collars and set screws, and a two-piece zinc bridge. Soapbars are one of the most classic pickup designs and add another tonal option for players that is at once incredibly familiar and effortlessly playable.
For this PRS/Seymour Duncan collaboration, we started with the Seymour Duncan Antiquity P90 for its sweet, vintage growl and cool, gritty sparkle. However, we modified the pickup slightly so it sits at the proper height in our cavity design. Like with original Antiquity pickups, chords sound full and round, while single notes sing sweetly. A relatively low output pickup, these soapbars have a many usable voicings by simply adjusting your volume and tone controls.Learn More
You think you can't reinvent the wheel? Think again. This Tausch 665 Raw is no Tele knockoff, this is a totally unique instrument. What we have here folks is a work of art. Rainer Tausch only builds two electric guitars each month. Each one is meticulously crafted. The body is pear wood. Unbelievably resonant. Semi hollow body with an end to end sustain block, set neck, gorgeous butterscotch blonde nitro aged finish. Set maple neck, gives great access up to the highest notes. Light, semi hollow, and cool vintage finish (Wow!). The neck is one-piece maple with a bone nut, 22 Wagner frets, and Sperzel locking tuners. Feels like the best 50's Telecaster you've ever played. Haussel pickups: single coil, Broadcaster-style bridge pickup, with a "Tauschsound" humbucking neck pickup. It has a coil-tap switch, which gives a vast array of tonal possibilities. The neck pickup sounds like a vintage PAF! This guitar has monstrous tone, vintage vibe, with modern sensibilities. Keith Richards would love this guitar. Awesome in every way. Comes with original hard case.Learn More
1985 doesn't seem like it was 33 years ago. When you say something happened in 1990 my mind thinks of that as being just 10 years ago. Time sure does fly. Most Taylor aficionados will consider this 710, built in 1985, a vintage model. Made in the original Lemon Grove factory, Taylor only made 681 guitars in 1985. Vintage Taylors are known for having plenty of volume and this one lives up to this reputation with ease. Easy to play and light as a feather, it could fill a large room with minimal effort from the player. Frets are in near-perfect condition. Overall a well seasoned, fantastic instrument that has opened up beautifully in its 33 years. In great condition, with the typical cosmetic wear you'd expect. No repairs, no separations, and no issues. Passive Thinline under saddle pickup. The pickguard has been replaced with a new one, and the original one will be included inside the case. Just recently set up with Elixir 16102 phosphor bronze medium string. It is ready to go.Learn More
This is my favorite guitar in the whole world. That's a pretty bold statement I know, but I'm in love with vintage Gibson J-45 guitars. I especially love tobacco sunburst, adjustable bridge J-45 guitars. Here we have a 1960 Gibson J-45 ADJ in tobacco sunburst, ceramic adjustable bridge with a newer, non-original chipboard case. Serial number #R5835-19. It's a one-owner guitar, and it's been played a lot. There is pickwear around the soundhole, and pickguard cracks. That's fairly standard for models from this era. The original owner put his initials with mailbox letter on the headstock and front of the guitar. They are small and unobtrusive, I would leave them there, It adds character and history in my humble opinion, but they can be removed. The neck has a 1-11/16" nut width. The bridge has a slight lift at the edges on the treble and bass sides...it hasn't moved in 30 years, so it should be fine for many more years to come. The overall condition is very good. Some nicks, dings and scratches, and some pick wear, as mentioned earlier. Action is a respectable .100" at the 12th frets of the low E string and .070" at the 12th fret of the high E string. This is a solid, well loved guitar that sounds like a million dollars. It's awesome, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. To find a one-owner vintage guitar doesn't happen that often these days. The gentleman we got it from is 96, and he bought it new. That is so cool.Learn More
