This Doheny has been upgraded with Tortoise Shell Pickguard and Vintage Satin Tint finish.
Inspired by the classic surf sound born in Southern California, the new G&L Doheny takes its name from the iconic beach in the heart of Orange County where 60's surf pioneers became legends. Since those halcyon days, both music and surfing have evolved far beyond their roots, and so has the performance of the gear.Learn More
Doheny takes the bolt-on offset-body into new sonic territory with newly developed Magnetic Field Design jazz pickups, the first on any production G&L. Naturally, these new pickups will invite comparison to Leo’s jumbo MFD ASAT Special pickups, given they employ a narrow bobbin aperture and broad coil splay. But Doheny's MFD pickups are more about jangle than twang, just as they should be for a guitar like this. With a classic jazz bobbin aperture wrapped with traditional Formvar wire, these pickups just might be the approach Leo would have taken had he been with us a few years longer.
So what’s it like? The sound is rich in harmonics yet surprisingly full, the result of carefully researching and applying Leo's creative work across the decades. The Doheny pickups deliver the experience fans have hoped for, with their flexibility maximized by the PTB tone system that allows echoes of yesteryear while delivering more output and range for today’s music. Add in Leo's finest vibrato for enhanced tuning stability and improved sustain, and the results are astounding.

The Classic Pro R is the 6V6/6L6 powered amplifier Bad Cat enthusiasts have been begging them to build for years. This blackface beauty is the latest addition to the USA Player Series.Learn More

Incorporating Bad Cat’s patented K Master circuit the amplifier offers big headroom, beautiful string to string note definition, incredible smooth break-up and rich harmonics. The American style punch and sparkle is here and yet they don’t comprise the Bad Cat signature sound.
Greetings my friends. We have a great guitar for you today: A 2013 Martin D-41. In fine, fine, super-fine shape. One of the best sounding modern Martins I've played in a long time. This guitar has tremendous depth, response, and woodiness of tone. It has the lush bass that you'd expect from a fine Martin dreadnought but without the muddiness that I hear in some dreads. This one has great clarity and punch in the lower registers, strong mids, and open and clear trebles. It's a remarkably balanced guitar and inspiring to play. The headroom is incredible when strummed hard and when played with a light touch, it actually roars. I can feel the back and sides vibrate all over as if the guitar is alive. The fit and finish is above reproach. The neck is straight and true with a great feel. The stings are well intonated. The action is low and easy to fret without any buzz. It stands up against any of the boutique guitars we've got in stock but I guess Martin was the original boutique guitar builder, so that makes sense. It's a fine instrument that will bring many years of enjoyment to you, and maybe your children, who knows? Comes with hard case.Learn More

Wood, that's the heart and soul of a guitar. You got to have the right wood. Take this new limited edition Suhr Modern Satin Pro HSH. It's made of African Okoume. How's that for a name? Also known as African Mahogany. It's a lovely wood, lightweight, and has some great tonal characteristics. It's reminiscent of mahogany...to my ears it's tonally very similar to Korina. It has a thin, satin finish that allows the guitar to resonate to its fullest potential. This is a guitar for serious folks...folks that want clean, articulate tone when called for. Of course, you have to be able to play clean and articulately, but if you're looking at this guitar, you've already got that part down. It weighs 6 lbs, 6 oz. From the heaviest of rock to the most mellow of jazz, this covers all the bases. Comes with deluxe Suhr gig bag.Learn More
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 would still be going strong 60 years later. Probably not. I bet he thought, "Well, I hope somebody buys it". We are a ways down the from the inception of the Fender Stratocaster and I promise you people will continue playing them for many 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.Learn More
What makes this guitar special: This is a great anniversary model that takes the tried and true American Standard and adds a nice twist in terms of tone. This model comes loaded with American Vintage '57 pickups that still carry many of the traditional Stratocaster tones, yet has a slightly smoother response through the middle positions, with a warmer low end and shimmer in the top. Plus, it also comes with the Delta Tone circuit that adds a little extra heat to the bridge and mid-range throughout. Other than that, it is a solid-playing, great-sounding, and classic-looking American Stratocaster. It has the 60th Anniversary medallion on the back of the headstock, and a special logo on the front with a diamond inside. This guitar is super clean, 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. This guitar comes with a special 60th Anniversary case with grey tolex and red, plush interior. The case shows some wear and comes with all the case candy and strap.
How about the Martin guitar company? They may be the ultimate American success story. A company founded by immigrants that has become the iconic American guitar manufacturer success story. Martin did not forget their roots. When our country reached its Bicentennial in 1976, Martin introduced this guitar to honor the country that has given them so much. Very cool in my opinion. The Martin D-76 was a limited run of 1976 guitars. The ebony fingerboard has 13 stars to acknowledge the original 13 states. It has a three piece Indian rosewood back, Bicentennial Eagle on the headstock, and herringbone trim around the soundhole. As a special bonus this guitar was sold with a transferable warranty. How cool is that? The D-76 is the only model that we know of that Martin has offered a transferable warranty. This one is clean and nice. There is some light wear, but overall it looks fine. No cracks or problems. The action is great, and it plays fantastically. It sounds wonderful. The frets are in near-perfect condition...it's ready to go.
One VERY interesting detail that sets this guitar apart from other D-76's is the gold tuners. It's the only D-76 we've ever seen with gold hardware, and according to the previous owner, the possibility that Elvis Presley special ordered it would explain the tuners. How could Elvis, the King Of Rock And Roll, not get a guitar without gold?
Here's the guitar's history from the previous owner:
"I purchased this D-76, new, from Berl Olswanger Music Inc. in Memphis, Tennessee in 1976. Martin honored the American Bicentennial, by creating This Special commemorative model D-76 Dreadnought. There were only 1976 made. What sets this guitar apart from other D-76 guitars is the story that was relayed to me by their salesman, Jim (I can't remember his last name). On the sales receipt he only signed his first name, and in the box "Sold by" he initialed "JEC". Both he and the music store are now deceased, so there is no way to verify this story. However, I had a long standing dealer/customer relationship with Jim and found him to be quite honest, so I have no reason to doubt his story. Allegedly, this guitar was ordered for Elvis in early 1976. It was lost in shipment for almost a year, so they reordered another one for Elvis, and delivered it to him just days before his death, in August of 1977.Learn More
Sometime in 1979 this D-76 was found in the shippers warehouse and delivered to Berl Olswanger Music.
When I first heard of the D-76 guitars I had tried in vain, to get Jim to order one for me. He indicated that had already ordered one for Elvis, and they were only allotted one D-76 per dealership.
On one of my later visits to the store, Jim told me this story of how they wound up with an extra D-76, but said he thought he might keep it for himself. In December of 1980, Jim called and asked if I was still interested in adding it to my collection. He said it was still in the store, had not been out of its case more than a couple of times, and had never been registered, so I would be registered as the original owner. Naturally, I said yes.
However, $1,976.00 was a lot of money in those days, so it took about a year to get it out of Lay-A-Way. The transferable warranty certificate, registered in 1982, shows me as the original owner."

-Gold Anodized Pickguard

Amazing sounding vintage Marshall Super Lead 100 head and matching 4x12 cabinet. Both made in 1971. This was previously owned by the guitarist from the legendary Memphis band, Target. Target had a large Mid-South regional fan base in the early 1970's and opened for Black Sabbath, Boston, and Kiss. Their lead singer, Jimi Jamison, went on to become the front man for Survivor and sang on a bunch of their hits; "I Can't Hold Back", High On You", "The Search Is Over", and "Burning Heart".
The amp has been completely gone through and serviced: new F&T filter caps installed; three new Tung-Sol 12AX7 preamp tubes; new EL-34 power tubes; cleaned contact points to ensure good grounds; preamp circuit returned to '71 circuit; replaced output sockets with Beltons; new Carling switches installed; output transformer transformer wire splices redone to NASA standards, insulated, and secured beneath board; new grounded cable installed, fuse wire to code, unnecessary polarity circuit removed; 3000V diodes to prevent flyback damage; 1R resistors for checking individual output current draw (Yes, I know this is not how Marshall did it originally. This is better); Output jacks put back in, but new wire (The old thin stuff was bent and slightly corroded...not something I'd trust this output transformer to); all new 18AWG buss wire with good solder joints.
The matching 4x12 cabinet has the original greenback Celestion G-12M 25 watt speakers.Learn More
Sometimes things just don't work out. A customer ordered this guitar from Suhr to his exact specs. Very cool specs, but unfortunately was unable to complete the transaction. Let his loss be your gain. What we have is a new Suhr Modern left-handed. It is set up from Suhr for right-handed playing, because that is how this guy learned to play. It is a left-handed guitar though, and could be strung as a left-handed guitar by simply swapping out the Floyd nut. I'm right-handed and I would play this guitar because I think guitars look really cool upside down. It's also a flat-out incredible guitar, and sounds amazing.
It's got a roasted Alder body, roasted Maple neck and fingerboard, 10-14" compound radius, Modern Elliptical neck carve (.800-.850), jumbo stainless steel frets, Suhr SSV pickup in the neck, SSH Plus in the bridge, Floyd Rose tremelo, locking nut, five way switch, and push-pull parallel pot for the bridge pickup.
It's brand new, never been sold, comes with full warranty, hard-case, and is ready to go.
The retail price for this guitar is $4780. Please call us directly for extra special pricing.Learn More
Thanks to breakthrough Taylor design, the GS Mini Bass offers players a remarkably inviting small-scale acoustic bass that’s compact, lightweight and ultra-comfortable on the hands. Adding to the popular heritage of our GS Mini family, this four-string bass sibling is even more impressive for its ability to create natural-sounding bass notes despite a condensed 23-1/2-inch scale length — about 10 inches shorter than the scale length of a standard bass guitar. Part of the magic is the custom nylon-core strings (with phosphor bronze wrap wire) developed with our friends at D’Addario exclusively for the bass (in fact, no other strings will work on it). Together with our patented dual-prong bridge pin design, the bass not only sounds great but also yields a slinky feel. And with the condensed fret spacing, playing bass is now physically easier on anyone’s hands, from kids to bass newbies to seasoned bass players craving a couch-friendly option. It’s an inspiring tool to have on hand for writing, recording demos, and jamming with friends. The bass comes equipped with our ES-B onboard electronics, along with a hard bag featuring adjustable backpack straps for easy portability.Learn More
ON ORDER - Collings Julian Lage Signature OM1A-JL
Call us to reserve yours now.
When Bill Collings first met the brilliant young jazz musician Julian Lage, in 2014, the two began a series of in-depth conversations about their respective crafts. Lage's profound insights as a guitarist would play a key role in the creation of Collings’ T (Traditional) Series guitars. This rare collaboration, which continued right up until Bill’s passing, in July, 2017, has yielded another exceptional new guitar with an old soul. Collings is proud to present a highly personal extension of the T Series: the Julian Lage Signature OM1.
Though Lage's guitar shares the same foundational specs as the OM1 T, it is unique in some key ways. Its neck feels like no other Collings guitar. That’s because it’s modeled after Lage’s cherished 1939 Martin 000-18. This pre-war gem is heard on the guitarist’s 2015 solo album, "World’s Fair", and was his main touring acoustic for years.
The 000-18's neck—which was of course originally hand-shaped and sanded—has a distinctive taper altered by decades of wear. For Lage, this particular neck had come to feel like home. Through careful analysis and digitization of its unique dimensions, we were able to precisely recreate its worn-in, asymmetric feel on his signature model. While we maintained the relatively narrow 1 11/16" nut of the 000-18's neck, we extended the fretboard from the original short scale to our standard 25 1/2" length for slightly greater presence and note definition.
Lage has an affinity both tonally and aesthetically for vintage guitars whose finishes have mellowed after years of playing. To recreate this effect we initially considered a varnish, but to achieve the ideal combination of a thin finish application and a vintage aesthetic, we landed on a custom satin lacquer. This new finish offering not only feels and looks right to Lage, he finds it has the same inherent openness of tone that is present in the best pre-war instruments.
With his typical descriptive eloquence, Lage characterizes his signature model as a "lovingly neutral" guitar. It has a remarkably even response between registers. It's not an empty flatterer, but an instrument that rewards you when you're playing your best. In this way, Lage, whose own education is unending, sees the guitar as a teacher.
Lage's signature model incorporates a script peghead logo not seen on a new Collings instrument in decades. This is the inlay that Bill hand-cut some 30 years ago when he started out in a tiny shop in Austin, Texas. We see this as a loving tribute to our late leader, who in his final project was able to realize the perfect new steel-string for one of today’s most exacting guitarists.Learn More
The 114e features our popular Grand Auditorium body style, whose physical dimensions have made it a popular choice for its appealing performance versatility. Layered walnut back and sides are topped with a solid Sitka spruce soundboard, which together produce signature clear and balanced tone with a pleasing projection and midrange focus. The 1-11/16-inch nut width is slightly narrower than the standard 1-3/4-inch width of other steel-strings in the 300 Series and up, making it easier for developing players to navigate the fretboard. And with Taylor’s onboard Expression System 2 pickup, the guitar is ready to plug in whenever you are. The guitar ships in a durable lightweight gig bag.Learn More
