James Taylor, that's a pretty iconic name. I had a girlfriend that was in love with him around 1970. Needless to say, I wasn't too fond of the boy. The girlfriend is now my wife. She still likes him, and I have since grown to like him myself. What can I say, I was a jealous fool. Here we have an Olson James Taylor made in 2002. This guitar is an extremely rare and extremely fine instrument. It's hard to know where to begin. First of all, it's the 4th built out a limited edition of 80. Olson has sold them all, there won't be anymore. It is signed by James Taylor and the builder, James Olson. This is the pinnacle of a great builder's art. It sounds so good, plays so flawlessly, and is an absolute gem on an instrument. I see this guitar as a prime collectible: one that can only appreciate in value with the passage of time. In the meantime, you get to enjoy and play one of the finest acoustic guitars on the planet. This is a used instrument, showing very light wear. Overall, the condition is excellent. The frets are perfect, and it plays like a dream. Folks, this is one fine guitar.

This McCarty 594 feataures a 10-Top, Copperhead Burst finish, and an Ebony fingerboard and headstock veneer.
The McCarty 594 is a vintage-inspired instrument that is at once incredibly familiar and effortlessly playable. Whether you are looking for rich, authentic, vintage humbucking tones or nuanced, sweet single-coil sounds, the McCarty 594 can seamlessly master both sonic territories thanks to the 58/15 LT pickups and push/pull coil taps on the tone controls. The electronics layout, a few key specifications, and PRS craftsmanship combine in the McCarty 594 to create an instrument that plays in tune, is intonated the entire length of the neck, and feels like a guitar that you’ve been playing forever.
"The 594 is the best new guitar I've played in years. It has a vintage heart and soul but without the technical limitations that usually come along with an old instrument. What good is an old guitar if you can't get all that feel out of the upper frets, or the intonation is off? To hear that old PAF sound but be able to articulate the notes in a way that only modern manufacturing could allow is so exciting." – John MayerLearn 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

Here's a super cool bass that you don't see very often. We have a 1963 Gretsch 6070 Country Gentleman hollow body bass. Featues one single Gretsch Supertron pickup. This is a great sounding bass, perfect for blues, jump blues, jazz, rock, anything you want. The neck feel has a similar profile to an upright bass: BIG and full, and it has that upright bass thump too, even when it's plugged in. Just so cool. Now the downside: it has the typical vintage Gretsch binding issues, which means it's going brittle and crumbling. The previous owner says the binding hasn't changed in the last 20 years, and it does appear to be stable. If it were mine, I would leave the binding alone. It certainly doesn't affect the sound or playability. The finish is original...everything is original for that matter. We are selling it as-is regarding cosmetic issues, but we guarantee that the bass works and plays fine. The frets are in good shape. This bass has had flatwound strings on it its entire life, so the fingerboard is in fine shape. The bass player for the Sons Of Champlin played a bass just like this at the Human Be In in San Francisco, so there's that. There is no case and no stand post.Learn More

The S2 Vela Satin is a vintage-inspired guitar with loads of personality and tonal textures. The Vela boasts an offset body shape that is at once elegant and edgy. The addition of a satin nitro finish for this limited edition gives the Vela added attitude and resonance and a truly addictive feel.Learn More
Its pickguard-loaded electronics feature a PRS-Designed Starla pickup in the bridge, providing a bright, punky tone, and the PRS-Designed Type-D Singlecoil in the neck that gives the Vela some noteworthy bite. The coil-tap on the tone control allows the bridge pickup to split to singlecoils, providing a balanced tone that will cut through the mix with style. Anchoring this guitar is the PRS plate-style bridge with two saddles that were designed to compensate for intonation. This bridge harkens back to Paul’s early designs and traditional bass plate-style bridges, but is top-loading for easy restringing. Like the bridge found on Paul’s Guitar and some Private Stock models, PRS’s new plate-style bridge features brass saddles and an aluminum plate for maximum tonal sustain.
We are proud to offer a 1957 Gibson ES-175. Serial number A25639. This is a fine collector's grade instrument, about as good as it gets. This guitar is clean...very clean. It has one original PAF humbucker pickup. This is the earliest of Gibson humbucking pickups, without a sticker, a proto PAF. These are different than the later PAF's. It sounds more like a P-90 on steroids: big, fat, and clear, but without the hum. It's pretty amazing that this guitar still has the original pickup. An original '57 PAF is one of the most sought after pickups on the planet! The neck is big, like all 1957 Gibsons, and it feels great. Original Kluson tuners: the same ones you'd see on an original '59 Les Paul. The pickguard is replaced, and the first 5 frets have been professionally replaced. Other than that, it is all original. No cracks. No structural issues. It's clean and nice. A strong excellent condition. It's just so, so cool. Beautiful patina. I get this great image of Joe Pass playing this guitar. In many ways (really in all ways), this is the ultimate jazz guitar. I hate to confine this guitar to just one genre of music because it's a great guitar period, for all styles of music. It's just a stunning instrument. It comes with a 1960's Gibson pebble grain, orange interior case.Learn More
