What is cooler than a 1950 Gibson ES-175? How about a Blonde Gibson ES-175? Now we're talking! We have a lovely Gibson ES-175N from 1950. Serial number A-9824. The finish is original and the guitar is very clean. There is light lacquer checking looks great and has that vintage patina. The ES-175 is a jazz guitarist's staple, just ask Joe Pass. The tuners are replacement Gibson tuners from the 1970's. The tailpiece has been changed. The pots are changed but we have the original wiring harness and it comes with the guitar (the date codes on the pots are from 1950). The case is a Gibson case from 1970's that needs a handle. At some point an excellent refret was done, and these frets are in great shape. Electronics work perfectly. It is professionally set up and ready to play right out of the box. It's a good investment, they aren't many this clean around, and it is a great playing and sounding guitar.Learn More

This custom Larrivee OM was inspired by the Harmony H-169 American; as used by Buck Owens, Ryan Adams, Joe Bonamassa, Pat Smear, and many others. This is a basically a Larrivee OM with a satin Red, White, and Blue finish. I certainly do not mean to disparage the fine Harmony guitars made in the late 60's, but let's just say this guitar actually sounds and plays spectacularly; without the tuning or intonation issues associated with many of those Harmony guitars. And all for a price that's a lot less than a vintage Harmony. The tone is very lively, with great character and balance. Great playability, and the fit and finish are just a given with Larrivee. This one also has the looks that will blow everyone away. Get on stage with it, and this guitar should turn some heads. You will certainly love how it sounds. It has engraved, open-back tuners, stars on the headstock, maple wood binding, spruce top, and mahogany back and sides. We've sold a lot of Larrivee guitars, and this may just be the coolest one we've ever seen. This guitar is the real deal.Learn More

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.

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

I've been away a few days. There is always something cool when I come back. I walked in the shop and went straight to this guitar - it's like it was calling my name. Of course I had been drunk for five days, which might account for some of that (I made that up. Don't mention it to Eric, he frowns on that sort of thing). Anyway, here we have an Ernie Ball Music Man James Valentine “Valentine” guitar that features a slab ash body, two Ernie Ball Music Man designed pickups (1-humbucker/1-single coil), with 3-way switch, coil tap, modern hardtail bridge with vintage bent steel saddles, 25.5-inch scale, oil and wax rubbed roasted maple neck with 10-inch radius maple fingerboard, 22 stainless steel frets, oversized 4-over-2 headstock, and compensated nut designed for superior tuning stability.
