You know vintage guys can be kind of snobby about guitars. I'm guilty of that. I used to say things like, "I won't play anything made after 1965". Kind of silly really, but that's how it was. Collings changed that for me. I was forced to admit their guitars stood up against old Martin and prewar Gibsons, and in some ways even exceeded them. Here we have a 2002 Collings D-2H. This is a Martin D-28 style with Indian Rosewood back and sides, Herringbone trim, Grover tuners and Sitka spruce top. It shows light wear, nothing major at all. This guitar was played but well taken care of. The frets are in near perfect condition. The action is great with plenty of room on the saddle to come down. An LR Baggs Anthem pickup has been installed (a $300 upgrade). It is loud and toneful. A guitar for a lifetime. Comes with original hard case.Learn More
Here's an outstanding Ken Smith BSR Elite Artist Series neck thru 5 string bass. At the time this bass was made it was the next to top of the line model that Ken Smith offered just below the limited edition Black Tiger series. The woods and finish on this model are improved over the lessor models...it has the Smith hand-rubbed catalyzed lacquer finish instead of the Dutch varnish. This BSR-EG has a fat tone with quick, rich, articulate note response. Incredible wood selection. The build and feel is phenomenal. Very comfortable and balanced in the hands. All original. No repairs. No modifications. Collector owned, it's in near mint condition...we've seen new basses hanging in other shops that show more wear than this one. The neck is straight and true. The frets look perfect and show no wear. Comes with original hardcase.Learn More
This is my kind of guitar, a rock and roll animal. Here's a 1972 Gibson Les Paul Custom. It has had some mods: middle pickup added; a Badass bridge installed that entailed drilling new holes for the studs; and a Bigsby tailpiece was removed at some point. The pickups were changed to Seymour Duncan. Now here's the kicker, and it's a real kicker: Three, count them, 1 2 3 original Gibson Patent Number Decal pickups come with the guitar. How about that?! That's a thousand dollar value in itself. The tuners are Schallers. Bone nut. The pots date from 1972. The original sunburst finish is really cool. The frets are in excellent condition. There's the general amount of wear you'd expect from a 46 year old guitar. Overall the condition is very good. It plays and sounds great. It sounds great with the Seymour Duncan pickups, but you may prefer to put the original pickups back in it...your decision. It comes with the original hard case with purple lining. This is a great deal for a great guitar.Learn More
The McCarty 594 is a vintage-inspired instrument that is at once incredibly familiar and effortlessly playable.

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.Learn More
"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

1965 was a great year. The average cost of a new house was $13,600. Gas cost 31 cents a gallon. Pink Floyd was formed. The Rolling Stones released Vol.2, their second UK album. It was a great year for music, and a great year for the guitar too. 1963, 64 and 65 are my favorite years for Gibson acoustics. I love the necks, with a comfortable medium "C" profile and a great taper. I'm also a fan of the ceramic bridge saddle. The sound is amazing. Listen to the early Stones records, you will hear what I mean. We have a beautiful 1965 Gibson J-50 Adj. It's a super clean, one owner instrument. It has very light wear, like it was played a year, then put up. The natural finish shows very light lacquer checking. 1-11/16" nut width. The frets are fine with plenty of life in them. No repairs or modifications. It has no issues or problems. It's featherweight and sounds fantastic. This is a collector's grade instrument, there aren't that many this nice around. One of the best I've seen. Comes with original hardshell case.Learn More
I love the way a double bound Tele looks. When Fender introduced the Custom Telecaster in 1959, with a bound body and rosewood fingerboard, it took the model to another level of good looks. This USA made G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy 90 is in 100% mint condition. Collector owned, we've looked it over very carefully and can't find any signs of wear. Frets are perfect. The neck is straight and true. Action is low and without buzz. The plastic protective coating is still on the pickguard. It has a number of very cool upgraded options - Double Bound Body, Schaller Locking Tuners, Vintage Tint Gloss finished neck, Quartersawn Maple neck. It plays and sounds fantastic. Comes with original G&G hardshell case, hang tags, certificate, and all paperwork.Learn More
The G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy 90 solves the age-old problem of this iconic design: How to get more body and attack out to the neck pickup without losing the warm tone. G&L has designed a great P-90 pickup that perfectly compliments the the twangy punch of their excellent MFD bridge pickup. With great balance and flexibility, this may be the ultimate Bluesboy.
"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 MayerLearn More
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).
