Among Taylor’s rosewood/spruce guitars, the 900 Series has always projected an aura of high-end sophistication, showcasing a detail-rich aesthetic and the most refined levels of Taylor craftsmanship. A lush redesign has brought a sleek and comfortable hand-carved ebony armrest to the series, along with the same sweeping array of tonal-enhancing refinements first applied to the 800 Series. On the 914ce, the Grand Auditorium’s all-around versatility has been punched up to produce a more powerful bass response and a warmer, sweeter midrange. The refreshed appointment scheme boasts a beautifully calibrated balance of ebony binding and koa purfling, together with colorful abalone shell inlays and trim. Additional features include a Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.Learn More
Memphis, I must say, is one cool town to live in. Where else can you run into James Alexander, the original Bar Kays bass player, and have a two hour conversation about the greats he played with (Otis Redding, Little Richard, Albert King, so, so many). Just another day at the office at Martin Music. So, if you get a guitar from us, it is guaranteed to have a little piece of the Memphis magic. Here we have a 2014 Gibson Les Paul Classic 120th Anniversary model. It's used but in near mint condition, showing only the slightest hints that it was ever played. The top is transparent Sea Foam Green, and it is gorgeous. The neck is straight and true. The frets are in 100% perfect condition. The only modification done to the guitar is the addition of nickel covers to the 57 Classic pickups. I personally think the guitar looks better with the covers but you could very easily remove them if they're not to your liking. This guitar is a pleasure to look at, a pleasure to listen to and a pleasure to play. Everything works like it's supposed to. No cracks, no repairs, no issues. It's a fine, fine guitar. Comes with original brown tolex hard case with pink plush interior.Learn More
I'm stricken by this guitar. It's got me weak in the knees. It's calling my name. I want it! I want it so bad. Here we have an LSL made in 2011. Alder body, maple neck, and Indian Rosewood fingerboard. It's a superb Strat style guitar. This ain't no kit guitar. Everything is made from scratch. The neck is hand carved by Lance Lerman and his crew at LsL. The body is carved at LsL, the pickups hand wound by LsL, everything except the metal parts is made in house. Their pickup covers, knobs, and metal parts are all hand aged with meticulous attention to detail. The neck has a 60's shape with a medium full profile and slight V, and feels like a long lost friend. The neck is straight and true. The frets are in perfect condition. Pickups are the 60's set that have slightly higher output and punch than their standard 50's ones. 9.5" fingerboard radius. This is a loud guitar when played unpluged; always the sign of a superior instrument. Strum an open chord on it and you can really feel the neck resonate in the back of your hand, and sustains forever. This guitar feels alive. It combines the best-of vintage aesthetic from a small, highly skilled staff of superb builders. The finish is aged perfectly, just enough and not too much. It looks authentic and believable. Seriously, there is nothing not to like about this guitar. Her name is Ginni. Comes with hang tag, trem bar, and original hard case.Learn More

If one were to imagine a 5 string bass built in the 1970's, the picture would look much like the Classic Stingray 5. The Classic Stingray 5 pays tribute to the original Music Man bass designs from the mid to late 1970's with added modern refinements. String-through body bridge, mute kit, small profile nickel frets and a curvy 7.5" radius neck are key specifications that harken back to the early days of Music Man production. A modern six bolt neck attachment and an easy access truss rod adjustment wheel ensure solid construction with no hassle adjustments. The Classic's tone remains true to the original with an ash body, 2 band EQ and a standard Music Man Alnico pickup.Learn More

Let's face it, musicians are prone to one-up-manship, it's just something in our nature. If you are talking about what instrument you play, you will use everything in your arsenal to shut the other guy down, that's just the way it is. Okay, so here we've got a 2005 Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray 5 Limited Edition Bass. Now let that last part sink in, Limited Edition. Now, imagine you are talking to another bass player and he is telling you about his Musicman bass, how cool it is, how great it sounds. You smile and nod, then say, "I have a Musicman bass also." You pause a moment, then say, "Mine is a limited edition." BAM! You knocked the dude out, just like Ali. Now I'm not saying you should do that, but you have the option to, which is pretty cool. This 2005 Ernie Ball Stingray Five limited edition Buttercream finish comes with a matching headstock. It's a great bass. All original, no repairs. The neck is straight and true. The frets are perfect and show no wear. The action is low and easy. It is very clean and nice. It looks great, plays great and sounds great. Comes with special brown tolex hard case specifically made for this bass with a limited edition badge on the interior.Learn More

The large soundhole is a great option for the hybrid player, it increases the openess of the guitar while expanding the bass, giving just enough dreadnought character to make this an incredibly versatile guitar.
Orchestra Model: 14 Fret, 25.5” scale. You can think of the Vintage OM as a smaller version of our Dreadnought-or maybe it's the other way around. Because of its characteristic superb balance, clarity of voice, and sustaining top register, the OM is often thought of as the quintessential fingerstyle guitar. It's not surprising, though, that more than a few players appreciate these same characteristics not only for flatpicking but also for a variety of other applications. We scallop both sides of the X brace on our OM. This provides the "looseness" required in a smaller guitar to produce a clear, strong bass response, and power and projection that belies its size.Learn More

The Emperor 5 Standard Classic features the very best of over 30 years of building experience in an instrument that blends the tone, playability and pro-player reliability bass players have come to expect from Fodera with a more traditional look that will be at home on any stage. Hand-selected Alder or Ash bodies, quarter-sawn 3-pc Rock Maple necks, with Birdseye Maple or Indian Rosewood fingerboards delivers classic tonal combinations, while a PLEK’d compound-radius fingerboard provides the effortless playability Fodera has become known for. Add to that the powerful sustain and resonance from our fully adjustable, custom designed, bell-brass bridge, and the Emperor 5 Standard Classic delivers the look and feel you’ll only get from a hand-crafted Fodera bass.
The Emperor 5 Standard Classic features a set of our Fodera/Duncan dual-coil pickups and the Fodera/Pope Standard Preamp with 3-band EQ. Designed in collaboration with Seymour Duncan, our passive Dual Coil pickups were designed to provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural and smooth upper midrange. Compared to an active soapbar style pickup, the tone is warmer and more organic. Wired in parallel, these pickups offer a noise-free single coil sound with added body and weight yet come with the added flexibility of full single-coil operation providing the snap, warmth, and mid-range punch of classic single-coil Jazz Bass pickups. Designed for optimal performance, our 3-band Fodera/Pope preamp offers an incredibly low noise flow, a very musical sounding EQ, and active/passive operation for the utmost reliability and flexibility whether you’re on stage or in the studio. Together, these electronics let you tailor your tone, from deep and round to bright and punchy and everything in between.Learn More
I don't like to start with bad news, but I may as well get it out of the way. The serial number has been removed from this instrument. It happened many years ago but we cannot undo it. I dated this guitar from the pot codes. We have a 1978 Gibson Les Paul Custom. It's a three piece neck with a volute, pancake body, and cherry sunburst finish. The frets are good. The pickups have been changed to WCR Fillmore Edition humbucking pickups (a $320 upgrade). They sound great. Check this link out for a full pickup review: http://www.jimwagnerpickups.com/fillmore_review.pdf
Overall condition is very good. There is wear befitting its age. The frets are fine, everything works like it should. It comes with a very cool simulated alligator vintage gig bag.Learn More
Geez, I wanted a Vox Phantom so badly in 1965. Brian Jones played one and he was the bomb. In my mind he was just the coolest guy ever. When I saw my first real Vox in person at Melody Music here in Memphis, I was stunned. I was even more stunned by the case. It was different than any other guitar case I had ever seen. I've got the case. If you have the guitar but no case, we need to hook up. This is a mid sixties Vox case measuring 44" long, 5 3/4" wide at the top width, 17" wide and 4 1/4" deep. The latches and hinges work fine, and the tolex is in good shape. There is some wear but it is in remarkably good condition, especially considering its age.Learn More
