  1. USED 2003 Gibson Custom Shop Southern Jumbo SJ Brazilian signed by Craig Morgan
    $6,500.00

    Here is a 2003 Gibson SJ Custom Shop made with the Holy Grail of tone woods, Brazilian Rosewood. The Southern Jumbo is a workhouse of a guitar beloved by many famous artists...Woodie Guthrie and Hank Williams Jr were both known for loving the model.  The Southern Jumbo was born in 1942 with solid Brazilian rosewood back and sides, but the model is more commonly found with the solid mahogany back and sides it carried when it reappeared in 1946. This Brazilian incarnation has been crafted in Bozeman, Montana by Gibson’s lauded acoustic division. Other features of the model include the solid premium Sitka spruce top, 6-ply top binding and 4-ply back binding, nitrocellulose vintage sunburst finish, tortoise Southern Jumbo pickguard, and split-parallelogram mother-of-pearl fingerboard position markers. The Brazilian Rosewood is gorgeous. It has a great feeling neck with a nice medium profile. There is no wear, it is perfect. It is a serious guitar and a great sounding guitar. Okay, as we like to say in the business, now for the kicker: It is signed on the front by country artist, Craig Morgan, how cool is that? This guitar retailed for $12,500 back in 2003. Grab it now for a fraction of that price. Comes with original paperwork and hard shell case.

  2. PAUL REED SMITH SILVER SKY JOHN MAYER SIGNATURE - Golden Mesa #9639
    $2,299.00

      "It's been a dream of mine for years to design a guitar that includes some of my favorite vintage specifications but with a modern spirit and aesthetic. After two years of study and refinement, the Silver Sky is my vision of what a reboot of the electric guitar should look and feel like." – John Mayer
      The PRS Silver Sky is the result of a close collaboration between Grammy Award-winning musician John Mayer and Paul Reed Smith. More than two and half years in the making, the Silver Sky is a vintage-inspired instrument that is at once familiar but also newly PRS through and through. This model was based off of Mayer and Smith’s favorite elements from 1963 and 1964 vintage instruments, resulting in an idealized version of a vintage single-coil guitar. The attention that was paid to every detail sets this guitar apart.
      Some of the more distinctive specifications include, the headstock shape, tuners, neck and fretboard, bridge, and pickups and electronics. The headstock shape is based on PRS’s trademark design, but inverted to both accommodate Mayer’s playing style and also to keep a consistent length of string behind the nut, which makes staying in tune easier. The tuners are a traditional vintage-style, closed-back tuner, but with PRS’s locking design. The neck shape was modeled after 1963/1964 vintage instruments, and the fretboard has a 7.25” radius. The moment your hand grabs this neck, it just feels right. Like the tuners, the steel tremolo takes a classic design and incorporates PRS’s trem arm and Gen III knife-edge screws. The bridge on the Silver Sky is setup flush to the body in the neutral position so that the tremolo bridge only goes down in pitch. By keeping the bridge in contact with the body, the guitar itself is acoustically louder, which improves the signal to noise ratio of the single-coil pickups. The 635JM single-coil pickups are very round and full, with a musical high end that is never “ice-picky” or brash.
      Other high-quality specifications include a bone nut, a molded metal jack plate that is curved and makes plugging and unplugging a guitar cable hassle-free, retooled knobs, fretwire that is slightly smaller than what you’d find on most PRS electric guitars, and PRS’s double action truss rod (accessible from the front of the headstock for ease of use).

  4. USED Fender 2006 Stratocaster 60th Anniversary Diamond Limited Edition #2120
    $1,095.00

    I wonder if Leo Fender knew when he saw the first Fender Stratocaster roll off the production line that he had invented an iconic guitar? An instrument that would help define popular music and popular culture for decades, and over 60 years later is still going strong. Probably not. I bet he thought, "Well, I hope somebody buys it." We are a long way down the road from the inception of the Fender Stratocaster, and I promise you people will continue playing them for years to come. Today we have a very cool, 2006 Fender Stratocaster 60th Anniversary Standard made in the USA. Fender made this guitar to commemorate the company's founding 1946-2006. This guitar is collector's grade, near perfect condition. It still has the plastic coating on the pickguard. The neck is straight and true. The frets are in perfect condition. It plays and sounds great. The maple neck has an Indian rosewood fingerboard with a comfortable C profile. The sunburst finish is beautiful. Comes with a special 60th Anniversary case with grey tolex and red, plush interior. The case shows some very slight cosmetic wear. Does not come with the strap, but has the original hangtag, cable, and other case candy.

  5. Paul Reed Smith S2 Singlecut Standard - Vintage Cherry Smoke Burst #8352
    $1,349.00

      Featuring a Pattern Regualr neck profile.
      The S2 Singlecut Standard’s warm, woody tone and focused midrange make this guitar a solid choice for players of all styles and set ups. The solid-mahogany body and clear pickups combine to give this guitar a strong fundamental platform that can easily find its place in the mix. The classic control layout features volume and push/pull tone controls for each pickup, so players can access authentic singlecoil sounds in addition to strong, punchy humbucker tones. The set mahogany neck (paired with a rosewood fretboard) provides remarkable resonance for a fuller tone. All of this paired with PRS low mass locking tuners and PRS adjustable stoptail bridge, nut, and strings, makes the S2 Singlecut Standard an exceptionally versatile guitar with vintage vibe and modern reliability. Whether playing lead or rhythm, live or in the studio, the S2 Singlecut Standard is a reliable tool with extreme versatility and effortless playability.

  6. Paul Reed Smith McCarty 594 - 10-Top - Turquoise  #0224
    $4,300.00

      Featurning a 10-Top, and Pattern Vintage neck profile.
      The McCarty 594 is a vintage-inspired instrument that is at once incredibly familiar and effortlessly playable. Whether you are looking for rich, authentic, vintage humbucking tones or nuanced, sweet single-coil sounds, the McCarty 594 can seamlessly master both sonic territories thanks to the 58/15 LT pickups and push/pull coil taps on the tone controls. The electronics layout, a few key specifications, and PRS craftsmanship combine in the McCarty 594 to create an instrument that plays in tune, is intonated the entire length of the neck, and feels like a guitar that you’ve been playing forever.
      "The 594 is the best new guitar I've played in years. It has a vintage heart and soul but without the technical limitations that usually come along with an old instrument. What good is an old guitar if you can't get all that feel out of the upper frets, or the intonation is off? To hear that old PAF sound but be able to articulate the notes in a way that only modern manufacturing could allow is so exciting." – John Mayer

  8. Vintage 1986 PRS Custom 24 Royal Blue
    $6,995.00

    For the PRS collectors – aside from a 1985 Custom 24, this is one of the most desirable Paul Reed Smith guitar models out there. A 1986 Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 with a very low serial number, 6 0662. Yes, that's the 662nd guitar from the PRS production. Royal Blue finish with a highly figured flamed maple top. The Royal Blue finish has faded very nicely and looks so cool! Book matched flamed maple top on a one-piece mahogany body. Mahogany neck with a perfectly straight grained Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard that has a beautiful dark chocolate color. This guitar was refretted eleven years ago by the PRS legend John "Orkie" Ingram, possibly the most qualified PRS tech out there, and has remained in its case ever since. The set up is just as perfect now as it was over 10 years ago, which is a true testament to how well these guitars are built. There's a "Star" inside the neck pickup cavity signifying Mike Deely did the final assembly. It does show some minor bumps and bruises and buckle rash from its over 30 years of life. No major issues at all. Comes with the original case that has a cosmetically rough exterior. The handle has come off and is included inside the neck pocket.

  9. USED 1993 Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 10-Top Rare Purple Finish
    $2,995.00

      Here's one to make all your friends jealous. A PRS Custom 24 with one of the most exceptional flamed maple tops you'll ever see. Made in 1993 at the old factory when PRS was still located at Virginia Ave in Annapolis, MD. Some collectors would call this a "Pre-factory", "Pre-CNC", or "Pre-Stevensville" model. You won't find many PRS Guitars with purple finish from this era. This color was very inconsistent with the stain on some tops being so dark the figure of the top was difficult to see. A few were like this, with great color and a maple top that has figure with extraordinary depth and definition.
      All original. Plays perfectly and set-up perfectly! No major issues at all. This guitar has been lightly played early on in its life, and has been stored in its case for the past 20 years. It's obvious it's been well taken care of and is remarkably clean for a 26 year old guitar.
      "Old factory" features: small heel, one piece tremolo, Mother Of Pearl "Old School birds", Wide Thin neck profile, Vintage Bass neck and HFS bridge pickups, phase 1 tuners, tone knob. Comes with original tremolo bar, truss rod tool, and hardshell case.

  11. Paul Reed Smith SE Paul's Guitar - Aqua #7572
    $999.00

      "The SE Paul’s Guitar is a great example of design, engineering, and teamwork. It’s as close to home as we could get inside of the SE Series, and I am very proud of it," Paul Reed Smith.
      The SE Paul's Guitar delivers a lot of "PRS," starting with tone and versatility. The TCI "S" treble and bass pickups deliver a very pure, vintage sound. The SE Paul's Guitar also features two mini-toggle switches between the volume and tone knobs. This setup allows players to put either or both pickups in true single coil mode, which delivers the clarity and uniqueness of vintage single-coil tones in both single coil and humbucking positions. This is the first model to offer this style of electronics outside of the Private Stock and Core lines.
      "The Paul's Guitar, like the Modern Eagle before it, has always been about Paul's latest discoveries in guitar making. To bring this guitar into the SE Series, we knew the tone, functionality, and playability had to be right and had to be consistent," said Jack Higginbotham, COO, PRS Guitars. "We feel this guitar offers a lot of value to players."

    $3,090.00

      This Xotic XSC guitar is hand built in the USA and features nitrocellulose finish, 5A grade flame roasted maple neck treated with oil for the ultimate in playability and Raw Vintage hand wound pickups based on Xotic's own proprietary design. Body and guitar necks are premium grade tone woods for full lush lows and shimmering highs resulting organic, woody tones that works well with all styles of music.
      Not only does Xotic's heavy aging process give each guitar its own distinctive qualities and naturally aged look, it allows the body wood to breathe and resonate for a highly sought-after tone. The slightly worn look of the beautiful white finish on this guitar gives it a noble, powerful aesthetic. Combined with a roasted flame maple neck and Indian rosewood fingerboard, this guitar has an organic tone and vintage mojo that is distinctly Xotic.
      Hand-wound and assembled in California, Raw Vintage USA single coil pickups are built with period-correct specs to produce classic tones. Features include Alnico 5 magnets, single Formvar copper wire, vintage style push back cloth, as well as leads dipped in layers of lacquer and wax. For even more tonal variations, this HSS pickup configuration features a Raw Vintage RV-PAF-F humbucker in the bridge position that harkens back to early PAF-style pickups.
