Here we have a cool Custom Shop SG. A 2005 Gibson SG Standard Custom Authentic made in the Custom Shop. This model was a Guitar Center exclusive and had slightly different specs from a normal Historic series SG at the time, namely the Grover kidney bean tuners and the lightly aged finish. This guitar was the precursor to the Historic VOS models (VOS finish wasn't available in 2005 and was first introduced in 2006). It features a mahogany body, mahogany neck, and a gorgeous fingerboard...the variegated grain with black lines and beautiful colors would make you think it's Brazilian Rosewood but knowing how unlikely that is we believe this to be Madagascar Rosewood. All original, never modified, never repaired. In excellent condition. The neck is straight and true. The frets are in perfect condition and show no wear. It has that famous 60's neck profile that Gibson originally advertised as the "fastest neck in the world". It feels great: not too fat, not too thin. This guitar oozes with vintage vibe. Mick Taylor, Duane Allman, Dickie Betts, all saw the beauty of the SG model. When Mick Taylor got his SG, his 1959 Les Paul became his backup guitar...now that's saying something. The pickups are PAF reissues and they sound awesome. The figuring on the body is beautiful. A lot of guys back in the day, changed the tuners to Grovers, so to me it's got the total Mick Taylor/Duane Allman vibe. It's one of best feeling and sounding SG models we have had in a while. Comes with original hardshell case. Considering the new SG Standard Historic Reissue model has a retail price of $6351 and discounts to $4499 this guitar is an incredible bang for the buck!Learn More
The M size guitar by Martin is one of their cooler innovations and has always been one of our favorite Martin models. It started in the 70's when repairman Matty Umanov in New York started converting Martin archtops to flat tops. Gruhn Guitars in Nashville started converting Martin archtops during that same time period. Those guitars were immediately picked up by fingerpickers. First, it's the perfect size..very comfortable in your lap. The extra width gave a little more bass than an OM or 000. It sounds as full as a dreadnought without being overbearing; with the crisp clarity that dreadnoughts lack. Perfect for finger-style and strumming. It's a tribute to Martin they would build this model: they obviously listened to players and gave them what they wanted. The M-36 we have was made in 2014. It is in excellent condition, showing very minor playing wear. The action is perfect, the neckset is perfect, and it sounds great. The only modification is the addition of a strap button at the neck heel. The body size can be best described as 0000, slightly larger than the 000 size. The back and sides are Indian Rosewood, the top is spruce. Comes with original hard case.Learn More
God I love an old tube amp. Ain't nothin' in the world like 'em. It's soul...that's what it's all about, soul. We have a 1956 Gibson Skylark GA-5 Amplifier. It has the original white tolex. The plastic Gibson logo is mostly gone. Our tech has gone through it, and it is working perfectly. Original tubes: USA made Tung Sol 6V6 GTA, RCA 12AX7, and RCA 5Y3GT. The transformer is changed with a Classic Tone, totally recapped, pots cleaned, and it has a new Jensen Mod speaker. It sounds fantastic, with a tube harmonic distortion that is unbeatable. I would put it up against any Fender Champ. It's great for harp, great for guitar, great for the studio, great for inspiration. This amp will inspire you to play your best. It does show a fair amount of wear, but it has the vintage vibe and it's ready to go for another 50 years. Comes with the original speaker that will need reconing if you want to use it.Learn More
I'm proud to say that I've known Joe Bonamassa since he was a teenager. Met him while he was recording with his first band, Bloodline, in the early 90's here in Memphis, TN. I used to sell him and his father guitars. He's a very cool guy that loves guitars to the bottom of his heart. Joe knows guitars. He has an amazing collection of vintage guitars. Knowing that this guitar was patterned after his most prized ES-335 should give you confidence that this is an exceptional instrument. Indeed it is a wonderful guitar. Gibson hit the ball out of the park. The neck is just a tad thinner that the standard 1959 Gibson neck profile. It is in mint condition, showing no wear. Comes with original hardshell case, warranty paper, and certificate of authenticity. The neck is straight and true. Playability is awesome. It has had a $186 pro set up and fret dress by Joe Glaser in Nashville, TN so it's good to go for you right out of the box.Learn More
Taylor’s popular acoustic/electric 814e shines as a superb all-purpose guitar. Its balance, warmth and articulation are great for fingerstyle, it has enough punch as a strummer to front a band, and the top-end power will fuel lead runs without getting shrill. Sitka Spurce top, Indian Rosewood Back & Sides, and equipped with Taylor Expression System 2 electronics; it makes a great choice for a gigging player looking for one guitar that can cover it all. The revoicing of the 800 Series has brought greater warmth, a more mature midrange, and a looser, more luxurious low end, thanks in part to the customized bracing and a new, custom-calibrated Elixir HD Light string gauge set. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, rosewood pickguard, Element fretboard inlay, and smoky ebony fretboard.Learn More
Gibson has had some cool ideas over the years, and this was one of them: offering Les Pauls in wide variety of non standard finishes. I mean, after you've seen a million sunburst Gibsons, wouldn't you be a little bored and want something different? We are offering a Transparent Blue Gibson Les Paul Standard from 1990. This guitar is one of only 200 made as a limited edition color and is very cool looking. It shows cosmetic wear; it is 27 years old after all. Overall condition is very good plus. With the exception of the tuners which have been changed to gold Gotohs, and a couple of screws on the electronics backplate everything is original. It plays great. The frets are in excellent/near mint condition and show only the slightest hints of being played. The original pickups scream and sound great. It's cool, it's unusual, and you can't go wrong with it. Comes with non-original hardshell case.Learn More
Here we have a 1976 Gibson ES-335TD with a factory original Burgundy Red finish. The serial number is 00 147142, which is on a decal on the back of the neck. That numbering system was only used for three years. The tuners have been changed to Schallers. The hardware is chrome. There is some pitting on the pickup covers, bridge and tailpiece. The tailpiece has been converted from trapeze to a stop tailpiece; a big improvement in tone. The pickups are "tar back" style. The pickups were used for a period of time during the 70's. The pickups themselves are encased in plastic to stop feedback. They sound really good and the pickups alone typically sell on ebay for over $200 each. It has a factory phase switch that Gibson used on the 335 models for about three years. The frets show wear, but still have life left in them. There is age appropriate nicks and dings, and wear. This guitar is structurally solid, very comfortable to play, and the overall condition is good. It sounds great and with the factory phase switch it is extremely versatile. It's a cool vintage Gibson that won't break the bank. Comes with original hard case.Learn More
The concept of a used instrument in "mint condition" is usually a myth but this Taylor 756 is as close to mint as you will ever find. We've examined it very carefully and it's hard to believe it didn't come to us directly from Taylor! Saying it is "pre-owned" would be more accurate as this guitar shows absolutely no wear. There are no dings, nicks, scratches, or scuffs anywhere to be found. It was special ordered by one of our regular customers and after having it at his home for a couple of months he has found that 12 string guitar is just not his thing. His loss can be your gain. This is a truly fine instrument. It sounds fantastic and plays like a dream. Strum one chord on it and you'll notice it has a richer, more vibrant voice than ever before thanks to the customized performance bracing. Taylor went back to the drawing board and redesigned their bracing patterns to get the optimum response out of each of their iconic body shapes. Taylor even added side bracing to add rigidity to the sides and enhance top and back movement. Comes with the original hardshell case.Learn More

Those guys at Bourgeois know about loud, wow, this guitar is loud! We are offering a new Bourgeois Slope D "The Standard" with an "Aged Tone" Adirondack spruce top and Mahogany back and sides. It's a fine, fine, super fine guitar. It really is the standard all guitars should be judged by. If you are familiar with late 40's early 50's Gibson J-50 and J-45 guitars, you'll know the sound I'm talking about, warm, rich, loud and succinctly brilliant.
Dana Bourgeois' passion for acoustic guitars was fostered by those coveted instruments built in the pre-war era. "The Standard" model was inspired by the classic designs that emerged from the midwestern United States at that time, but incorporates many elements of Dana's own design.
It starts with the striking Ziricote fretboard and bridge, beautiful in figure yet subtle enough to maintain the pre-war look. The single ring Ivoroid rosette and rectangular bridge hearken back to those old designs. Our contoured headstock was introduced with the L-DBO model, and fits the look perfectly!Learn More
The concept of a used instrument in "mint condition" is usually a myth, but this pre-owned Froggy Bottom is about as close to mint as you will ever find. We've examined it very carefully, and it's hard to believe it didn't come to us directly from Froggy Bottom! This is a truly fine instrument: an M Standard model Froggy Bottom guitar with cutaway. The top is Adirondack spruce, the back and sides are mahogany. 1 3/4" nut width. Ebony fingerboard with maple binding. This is one of the finest grand concert size acoustic guitars I've heard. Sounds wonderful, plays fantastic. It's as good as you could ever want an acoustic to be. It was made in 2013 but I can't find any wear anywhere. No dings, nicks, bumps, not a single pick mark on it. The frets show no wear. The neck is straight and true. It's an exceptional instrument for the discriminating player. Comes with hard case.Learn More

A varnish finish, how cool is that? You hardly ever see a varnish finish on a guitar, and I don't think I've ever seen one on a guitar in this price range. We have an Eastman T59/V AMB. It looks like an old violin. Everybody at the shop loves this guitar. Unplugged it's awesome, loud and resonant with lots of sustain. Plugged in, it's equally amazing. Its got a beautiful flamed maple top, back, and sides, with an antique amber sunburst finish. It just looks so good. Really authentic looking. The neck feels fantastic. The fret work is top notch. The Seymour Duncan pickups scream. This a fine, ES-335 style guitar, comparable to any Gibson or other semi solid guitar for a great price. There is nothing NOT to like about this guitar.Learn More
So, I'm researching this guitar, and I find out it is a 1950 model. I started telling everybody, "Man, this is an old guitar, 1950!" Everybody at the shop says, "That IS old!" Then I realize, I was born in 1951. So from now on I'm not saying anything about a guitar being old. We are offering a Gibson L-4 made in 1950. The back of the neck has been refinished. There was a crack in the headstock on the low E string side that was repaired, pro job. The body finish is original. The tailpiece has been changed. It is the same style as the original. The bridge thumb wheels have been changed, but the bridge is original. It is missing the pickguard. The tuners are repro Kluson style. There is a plugged jack-hole on the lower bout. There is a fair amount of pick wear on the top. It was well-used and well-loved. It plays fine, sounds great, and looks very cool. The frets have been professionally refretted and are in near perfect shape. The action is great; comfortable and fast. It is a very cool, vintage guitar. Great for jazz, blues, or whatever. Comes with a hardshell case that's not in great shape, but will be fine to store it and ship it in. This is a real vintage Gibson, one of their mid line models for $2000, which is a great deal.Learn More
