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.
Do you ever wonder what life would be like if Les Paul hadn't lived, or if he had played flute? We know there would be some incredible innovations in flutes but it would left us poor guitars players in a bit of a lurch. Anyway, Les played guitar and we are all better off for it. Here we have a 2017 Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Pro. It's a beauty! It has a heritage cherry sunburst finish on a great looking flamed maple top with chrome hardware. The neck has a 60's Slim Taper profile that's very comfortable and fast. The frets are in perfect condition. The neck is straight and true. It sounds great and plays great. It's perfect and ready for action right out of the box. It shows no wear. None. It is clean as a pin. Not a single scratch, ding, or nick. Could easily pass for brand new. Comes with all paper work. The pickguard that has never been installed, and the original hardshell 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

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

Unique to the Emperor Guitar is a pickup configuration that allows for a wider variety of tonal options compared to traditional Single-Coil-style instruments.

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.
