The new Bergantino forté (pronounced “for-tay”) bass amplifier is the newest member of the Bergantino Audio amplifier family. The Bergantino Audio Systems forté is an incredibly flexible, state-of-the-art Bass Amplifier, delivering maximum performance in a compact package. The forté uses the same analog preamp and power amp section employed in the ground breaking B|Amp, but with fewer options and control. The forté and the B|Amp have the same great sound, headroom and immediate command of your bass instrument signal, but is offered in a traditional amplifier package.
You will find many familiar features of the B|Amp including 4-band EQ control, bright switch, variable input gain adjustment, effects send/return, auxiliary input and headphone jack, tuner out, dual SpeakOn jacks, studio quality direct output, 2-Ohm operation and universal power supply. The forté also has a unique On-Board VRC (Variable Ratio Compressor) compressor adjustable from the front panel.Learn More

Eric, our beloved boss, ordered this up special. G&L sent him a photo of a great piece of wood, and he decided it would look great on a bass...now the bass is here. Pretty cool, huh? Ask and ye shall receive. This is a cool one, a G&L L-2500 Five-String with an Empress body, and Tamarind top. The finish is vintage natural, the neck is hard rock maple with rosewood fingerboard. The neck finish is a Satin Light Tint with jumbo frets. It has two G&L MFD L-series humbuckers, with Tri-Tone Active/Passive system. This is a great bass, solid as can be, super lightweight, and great sounding. A super-cool bass, unique, and oh so fine sounding: doesn't get much better.Learn More
Taylor has made a lot of cool guitars over the years. I really like this one. It is a limited edition Taylor 415 L7 Jumbo with Indian rosewood back and sides, and a solid spruce top. This one is a 2004 model. Taylor no longer offers a jumbo model. Overall it is very clean. There is some capo wear on the back of the neck near the third fret. It's there and it's obvious. Other than that the guitar is in excellent condition. The frets show some very slight signs wear but have many years of playing life in them. The neck is straight and the action is great. There is plenty of room on the saddle, the neckset is perfect. It sounds really good. This one is a boomer with a great, rich sound. It's really hard to go wrong with a Rosewood and Sitka Spruce jumbo. This was a Limited Edition model so there's that to consider. We have lowered the price to reflect the capo damage. Other than that, it's a peach. Comes with original hard case.Learn More
I was telling the lads at the store about a club I worked at in the early 70's. One the bands came through with a Fender Telecaster Deluxe. We were outraged that Fender would put a humbucker on a Telecaster. It was one of those, "How dare they!" moments. I have since matured. A tele with humbuckers is the bomb! We are offering a Suhr Alt T Pro. It is modeled after the 70's Fender Telecaster Thinline Deluxe but with a few tweaks to make it even better. This one has a black finish, two humbucking pickups ("Thornbuckers") and is semi-hollow body. The original black pickguard has been changed out to a white one, which we all like the looks of more than the black one that originally came on it. The black pickguard will be included in the gig bag. It sounds and plays awesome. In excellent, near-mint condition. I love the bridge with it's traditional brass saddles but better than a vintage one because you can adjust each string intonation individually. It has a maple neck with locking tuners. The frets are perfect, action is perfect, it's good to go. Comes with gig bag.Learn More
Poor owners of 1965 or 1968 Gibson instruments. They never really know if it's a 1965 or a 1968 because duplicated serial numbers in 1965 and 1968. One has to wonder if someone did that just to mess with folks in the future. Maybe a disgruntled employee, angry at the world, and determined to destroy future generation's dreams, dashes them against the rocks of time. Or maybe they just ran out of numbers. Who knows? This fine instrument, a Gibson A-50 mandolin, has one of those numbers. I think it's a 1968 based on the case, which would have had yellow lining in 1965. It is the original case, with the original key. Square with green lining. It looks like a late 60's case. Also, the bracket on the pickguard is chrome. In 1965 it would have been nickel. And, it has "Union Made" on the red label. So, my educated guess is 1968, but it could possibly be 1965. Regardless of the year, it's a great, great mandolin, just as clean as can be. I hesitate to use the word mint in describing a 50 year old instrument, so let's call this excellent plus. I mean, it's super clean. It plays great, the action is fine, the frets are perfect, and it has a lovely, quilted maple back. It sounds magnificent. It has the original, double line Kluson tuners. It's a great mandolin, one of the nicest I've seen.Learn More

"We had this one made up special". You've heard that before, but this time it's actually true. Eric, our beloved leader, ordered this Bourgeois OM all-Mahogany with a few special things. First off, this model usually comes with spruce top, but this was ordered with a mahogany top. These also usually have tortoise color binding, but this has a multi-layered Ivoroid binding and Ivoroid pickguard, with matching Ivoroid tuning keys. The Ivoroid touch is absolutely stunning against the dark, reddish finish. So, an all mahogany OM size guitar. How cool is that? Think of say, a 1946 Gibson L-G2 all mahogany: it is similar as far as tone, but with more balance and clarity. The all-mahogany style is also reminiscent of Martin's 0M-15 style, but done with much nicer aesthetics. It is perfect for finger-style guitar. This guitar is not only beautiful, the sound is unbelievable! It's my favorite acoustic guitar in the shop right now. It's awesome on every level: playabilty, sound, looks, it's got it all. An American Beauty, that's what this guitar is. Comes with hard case. Oh, and you can tell all your friends, "They had this one made up special". You'll be the envy of the neighborhood.Learn More

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 Grand Concert model is a refined and beautifully proportioned shape, and is everything you could desire from an acoustic guitar and more. It's tone is a wonderful blend of balanced clarity, and punchy projection, with a smooth rich bass response. This instrument is larger than the Parlor but smaller than the Concert Jumbo. It has a singing lyrical treble, with excellent sustain, and is comfortable to hold. Though it is a small guitar, the Grand Concert does not exhibit the tight nasal tonal quality in the midrange and bass that is generally associated with smaller guitars.Learn More
While the Grand Concert series is considered ideal for the fingerstylist due to its sensitive, dynamic responsiveness, it is equally appropriate for the flatpicker or plectrum player with the appropriate tonewood combination. It is prized by Bluegrass flatpickers and has even been said to surpass large bodied dreadnought guitars with respect to it's clarity, sustain and powerful projection.

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
This Classic Pro is expertly hand-built by the Bad Cat team in their Southern California shop using the same components and materials as their point-to-point Legacy Series amps.
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

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
