This Doheny has been upgraded with Tortoise Shell Pickguard and Vintage Satin Tint neck 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.

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

Wood, that's the heart and soul of a guitar. You got to have the right wood. Take this new limited edition Suhr Modern Satin Pro HSH. It's made of African Okoume. How's that for a name? Also known as African Mahogany. It's a lovely wood, lightweight, and has some great tonal characteristics. It's reminiscent of mahogany...to my ears it's tonally very similar to Korina. It has a thin, satin finish that allows the guitar to resonate to its fullest potential. This is a guitar for serious folks...folks that want clean, articulate tone when called for. Of course, you have to be able to play clean and articulately, but if you're looking at this guitar, you've already got that part down. It weighs 6 lbs, 6 oz. From the heaviest of rock to the most mellow of jazz, this covers all the bases. Comes with deluxe Suhr gig bag.Learn More
I wonder if Leo Fender knew when he saw the first Fender Stratocaster roll off the production line that he had invented an iconic guitar? An instrument that would help define popular music and popular culture for decades, and would still be going strong 60 years later. Probably not. I bet he thought, "Well, I hope somebody buys it". We are a ways down the from the inception of the Fender Stratocaster and I promise you people will continue playing them for many years to come. Today we have a very cool, 2006 Fender Stratocaster 60th Anniversary Standard made in the USA. Fender made this guitar to commemorate the company's founding 1946-2006.Learn More
What makes this guitar special: This is a great anniversary model that takes the tried and true American Standard and adds a nice twist in terms of tone. This model comes loaded with American Vintage '57 pickups that still carry many of the traditional Stratocaster tones, yet has a slightly smoother response through the middle positions, with a warmer low end and shimmer in the top. Plus, it also comes with the Delta Tone circuit that adds a little extra heat to the bridge and mid-range throughout. Other than that, it is a solid-playing, great-sounding, and classic-looking American Stratocaster. It has the 60th Anniversary medallion on the back of the headstock, and a special logo on the front with a diamond inside. This guitar is super clean, it still has the plastic coating on the pickguard. The neck is straight and true. The frets are in perfect condition. It plays and sounds great. The maple neck has an Indian rosewood fingerboard with a comfortable C profile. The sunburst finish is beautiful. This guitar comes with a special 60th Anniversary case with grey tolex and red, plush interior. The case shows some wear and comes with all the case candy and strap.
The year 1938! Of course you all remember that as the year Sea Biscuit beat War Admiral. It was also the year of the famous Orson Wells broadcast that caused panic in the streets. A new house cost $3,900. The average wage was 1730.00 per year. A loaf of bread cost 9 cents. It was also the year somebody bought this cool Rickenbacker Model 59 lap steel. We are talking history here folks, and boy is this instrument is full of history. It is stamped metal with a screaming, original horseshoe pickup, volume and tone knobs, and original black/gray burst finish. One tuner has been repaired with a different button. One knob is broken but is functional. Comes with original case. It shows a fair amount of wear; it is 80 years old after all. This is a great blues lap steel. Tune her to open E and let it wail! Make this beautiful old Rick lap steel yours, and relive 1938 forever.Learn More

We have one fine, super fine, guitar for you today. Oh, I should mention before I delve into this, that I saw Steve Earle a couple of weeks ago. Steve's guitar player played a guitar exactly like this, a Collings CL Deluxe! I was blown away by it. Now we have one in the shop. Life can be so sweet sometimes. This is a 2007 model, with a Brazilian Rosewood finger board (Collings no longer offers this), and a spectacular flame maple top. The pickups are Lollars, the finish is Amber Sunburst. This is Colling's top of the line solid-body guitar. A work of art by a master builder. The knobs and pickup rings are ivoroid; very classy looking. Actually the entire guitar is classy...it screams class and craftsmanship. It sounds phenomenal. The neck is big and wide. The handset neck joint is perfect. The Tone-Pros locking bridge and tailpiece are top-notch. The frets are in perfect condition. The guitar itself is lightweight, resonant, and in excellent condition. The Lollar Imperial humbuckers are a perfect compliment to the instrument. It has sustain for days! This guitar is flat-out as good as it gets. Comes with original hard case.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

This McCarty 594 features Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. This feature is usually only available on Artist Package models, but is available here for a very limited time.
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

The finish is Honey Burst with gold Grover tuners and ebony knobs. It's a striking instrument. It sounds and plays great, this is a serious guitar. The neck is C-shape, slim and comfortable.
