How cool would it be to have a name like Johnny A.? That is a bad-to-the-bone name. It reeks of coolness. The next best thing would be to own a Gibson Johnny A. guitar. Here we have a stunning 2016 Gibson Johnny A. Custom Signature. This is the top-of-the-line version. It has all the bells and whistles, gold hardware, one-piece mahogany back, Bigsby, flamed out-the-wazoo maple top, double cutaway, ebony fingerboard, custom pearl fingerboard inlays...it's got it all. The guitar is super clean and nice. I can't find any wear. Frets are perfect and look unplayed. Neck is straight and true. Action is low and without buzz. It plays like a dream AND it sounds great. Gibson hit a major home run with this design: a collaboration between Gibson R&D and Johnny A. This is an extraordinary guitar, and is one of my favorite guitars currently in the store. The hollowbody construction produces a big, fat tone that can rock with the best of them. Comes with Custom Shop certificate and original custom shop case.

Hey, I love my job. I get to look at cool guitars, play them, touch them, then write about them...and don't tell anybody, I get paid for this. HOW ABOUT THAT? Here we have a new Eastman T64V AMB. This guitar is modeled after the Gibson ES-330 and Epiphone Casino from the late fifties and sixties. It is a thin line, hollow body, with two P-90 style pickups, and a Bigsby vibrato. How cool is that? A Bigsby!! It has an aged varnish, Amber finish. Just an amazing guitar. If you are into The Beatles, early Stones, Slim Harpo, Howling Wolf, you'll like this. They all played models similar to this. It's my favorite new guitar in the store right now.Learn More
How about that model number? Is that cool or what? All you need to know about this fine guitar is within in this rather cryptic number. A special number for a special guitar. It is a 35th Anniversery, Grand Symphony, with Walnut back & sides. This is a fine, fine, super-fine guitar. The walnut back is absolutely spectacular. We've never seen walnut that looks better then this...it's absolutely jaw dropping. One of a limited edition of only 35 guitars. It has a sharp, Florentine cutaway, the best Gotoh 510 tuners, ebony fingerboard with 35 inlaid at the 12th fret, and a walnut backstrap overlay on the back of the headstock. The edge bevel on the bass side of this guitar's lower bout is gorgeous; inspired in part by the work of renowned luthier Grit Laskin.
This is what Taylor has to say about it: "This Taylor guitar showcases walnut wood for the back and sides, offering warm, deep tone, balanced projection, and clarity, in a stunningly complex appearance. The wood set was specially selected for its unique aesthetic qualities, making for an extremely limited run. The Taylor XXXV-GS-W acoustic-electric guitar also features a Sitka spruce top with Taylor's tone-enhancing CV bracing, an abalone rosette, Gotoh tuners, a bone nut and saddle, and the Expression System pickup. The Taylor guitar includes an ebony armrest, ebony binding, and a Florentine cutaway".Learn More
Bob Taylor has been making fine guitars for many years. When he puts his name on a signature guitar, then you know it's a good one. Taylor is not making the R Taylor Signature line right now, so this is a rare opportunity to own one. Taylor used only his most experienced craftsman on these instruments, with the best woods, in a small shop setting outside of the regular Taylor Guitar prodution. Here we have a 2006 R Taylor Style 1. Spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Ebony fingerboard, and an Ebony contoured arm bevel. The Laskin Armrest is a fantastic option that makes the guitar much more comfortable to play...it was also an additional $1500. The R Taylor guitars have a one-piece neck, without the scarf joint like the regular Taylor production guitars have. It is an amazing sounding guitar, that is perfectly suited for both strumming and fingerpicking. The kerfing is steamed and bent just the way cellos are made. The bridge plate is inlaid into the top, creating better tone and sound transference. It has the Expression system electronics, which sounds great. This guitar is clean and nice. The neck is straight and true. The frets are in perfect condition. There is a ding on the back, but it does not go through to the wood. It has the deluxe R Taylor case. A truly fantastic guitar. It's our acoustic salesman's current favorite guitar in the shop...you better buy it before he does.Learn More

It features Bourgeois's Aged-Tone Adirondack Spruce top, with Brazilian Rosewood back & sides, and a special inlay in the bridge wings. As always, all of the sunbursts are applied by Dana Bourgeois himself.
When Eric, (Our beloved leader) asked me to describe this guitar, I was quite frankly, intimidated. I open the case and I was stunned. How can mere words possibly do justice to this fine instrument? We have a new Bourgeois Slope D-Advanced Limited Edition. The top is Aged Tone Adirondack Spruce, back and sides are Brazilian Rosewood, (that's right, Brazilian), 14 frets clear of the body, Ebony peghead veneer, fingerboard is Guatemalan Rosewood, Waverly tuners, Sunburst finish on top, firestripe pickguard. I wonder if it sounds any good? Well, I'll be darned, it sounds phenomenal. Why am I not surprised? This is one of the best acoustic guitars we have had in a while. This guitar is stunning not only in looks but also tone, it's a work of art that will inspire future guitarists for many years.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

What could be cooler than a 70's Fender Jazz Bass? How about a brand new, G&L JB? This is so cool, a maple neck with a black, block markers, sunburst finish, two G&L JB Alinico 5 single coil pickups.

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
This Custom 24 has been upgraded with a 10-Top, Artist finish (Bonnie Pink), Artist Grade flamed maple neck and fingerboard. Also features a Pattern Thin neck profile.
Do you guys know the story about the PRS Custom finish, Bonni Pink? Bonni Lloyd was an early PRS employee, one of the first. She wanted a pink guitar and they guys at PRS made her one. Word got out and PRS made a few in very limited numbers during the late 1980's. Those guitars are highly sought after and are valuable collectors items. This one just came in, we had to wait a while to get it, again, it is being made in limited numbers. This guitar is new, a PRS Custom 24 with flames out the wazoo, a 10 top, bird inlays, and of course, the super cool Bonni Pink finish. It has a pattern/thin neck and vibrato. The finish is so cool, it's awesome. Oh, there may be some that scoff at a pink finish, but remember, Jeff Beck played a pink Charvel. You think you are cooler than Jeff Beck? I don't think so. So, man up and get this great guitar before some other, less insecure person grabs it. Comes with hard case.
