I'm giving my age away, but I remember when these came out in 1968: the Gibson Les Paul Standard. The Les Pauls were unavailable for eight years, so it was a big deal when they we re-released. Every pro got one. Joe Cocker's guitar player can been seen playing one in the movie Woodstock. Mike Campbell still uses his, as does Jeff Lynne. Rumor was, these first models were made from leftover bodies, necks, and other parts from the fifties. We have a really good one for you today. This is a fantastic 1968, small headstock, original P-90 pickups, one piece mahogany neck. There is lacquer checking on the front. It looks and plays great, no repairs, breaks, or other issues. The bridge and tailpiece are recent, and it has replacement Grover tuners. The frets are original. It has a great vintage patina. Strummed unplugged this guitar is very loud which is always the sign of a superior instrument. It's ready to rock and roll and sounds like a million bucks. Comes with non original Gibson hard case.Learn More
Hey, how about the nicest, original, vintage Fender Paisley Telecaster on the planet? That would be pretty cool, right? Step right inside ladies and gentlemen, that's what we are offering today. As a veteran of 40 years attending guitar shows, being intimately involved in the vintage guitar world, I don't use phrases like the "nicest one" lightly. This guitar may have six months actual playing time, it is amazingly clean. There is no checking or finish discoloration that is usually found on these models. It is super clean. The only cosmetic flaws of note are two small chip on the edge of the back of the body. This a fine collectors grade instrument. It is 100% original, down to the last screw. It is uncirculated and hasn't been taken apart a million times. The maple neck is nicely flamed, it's really pretty. It is just so cool. The paisley finish is bright and vibrant. It has the original ashtray pickup cover, the neck feels fantastic. Last but not least, it sounds great. This is the best one I've seen, and I've seen a few. Comes with original case.Learn More

Many collectors consider exceptional guitars as works of art. These two fine pieces are literally art, but art you can play. Warrior made these stunning instruments as a pair, and we are selling them as a pair. Warrior Guitars are a small company that builds some of the finest guitars around. They are prized for their beauty and exceptional craftsmanship; fusing the most rare, exotic woods and materials with exclusive electronic signal enhancement, to produce uncompromising sound. This is a magnum opus: Warrior Art. Lovingly brought to life by skilled artisans who hand-tailor each piece. Not only are they beautiful, they are great guitars. They are a joy to play, to hear, and to behold. The art work is breathtaking. A painting of David and Goliath is on both guitars, but both are unique. They put serious work into these instruments. No detail was overlooked or spared. They have been in a private collection, and have never been played. These are the only instruments like this in the world. Comes with original cases, paperwork, certificate and strap. The price is for the pair.Learn More
PRS Custom 22 in a custom color that is normally only available on a Private Stock model, Ultraviolet. This one also has the natural mahogany back which looks great next to the top color. The PRS Custom 22 solidbody electric guitar gives you the classic tone of vintage-style humbuckers in a gloriously appointed solidbody instrument. The Custom 22's mahogany body is topped with a stunning figured maple top. You'll delight in the feel of the 22-fret mahogany neck with its comfortable Pattern neck carve and rosewood fingerboard, while premium 85/15 humbucking pickups serve up a banquet of rich tones. A five-way pickup selector switch provides even more tonal possibilities. For versatility, playability, and looks, it's hard to beat the PRS Custom 22.Learn More
The S2 Studio takes the Standard 22 platform into new sonic territory with a single/single/hum pickup configuration and updated switching system. This versatile setup allows for a whole new scope of sounds that are only possible with a three pickup guitar, whether you’re looking for punchy singlecoils, vintage scooped tones, or the chunky kick of a bridge humbucker (that can still be split to singlecoils via the push/pull tone knob for a three single coil set up). With eight combinations in all, the S2 Studio covers classic tones but maintains a unique voice making it a perfect “desert island” guitar.Learn More
Here we have a 2010 Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster NOS 1960 Reissue. This is a good one: the back of the maple neck is flamed out the wazoo, and it looks spectacular. It has a slab Indian rosewood fingerboard, three tone sunburst finish, and mint green pickguard. The bridge has been upgraded with a Wilkinson block, and the lead pickup is wired to the neck pickup's tone knob. I think it's a cool mod, but can be switched back easily if you wanted to. It shows some minor cosmetic wear. It has nicks and dings, nothing major, just enough to make it look cool (more like a Closet Classic). The frets are in near-perfect condition, showing only the slightest hints of being played. The neck is straight and true, with a 1-11/16" nut width and 10" radius...it feels great. This is a great playing and sounding guitar with a serious, vintage vibe. Comes with strap, certificate, and original brown tolex case.Learn More
Featuring an amazing one-piece figured maple top, and a Faded Whale Blue Smokewrap Burst finish.
PRS Guitars is proud to offer the acclaimed McCarty 594 and McCarty Singlecut 594 with PRS/Seymour Duncan Soapbar pickups. McCarty 594 models were designed to rival the best vintage instruments, meticulously spec’d with a 24.594” scale length, Pattern Vintage neck carve, tweaked Phase III locking tuners with modified collars and set screws, and a two-piece zinc bridge. Soapbars are one of the most classic pickup designs and add another tonal option for players that is at once incredibly familiar and effortlessly playable.
For this PRS/Seymour Duncan collaboration, we started with the Seymour Duncan Antiquity P90 for its sweet, vintage growl and cool, gritty sparkle. However, we modified the pickup slightly so it sits at the proper height in our cavity design. Like with original Antiquity pickups, chords sound full and round, while single notes sing sweetly. A relatively low output pickup, these soapbars have a many usable voicings by simply adjusting your volume and tone controls.Learn More
You think you can't reinvent the wheel? Think again. This Tausch 665 Raw is no Tele knockoff, this is a totally unique instrument. What we have here folks is a work of art. Rainer Tausch only builds two electric guitars each month. Each one is meticulously crafted. The body is pear wood. Unbelievably resonant. Semi hollow body with an end to end sustain block, set neck, gorgeous butterscotch blonde nitro aged finish. Set maple neck, gives great access up to the highest notes. Light, semi hollow, and cool vintage finish (Wow!). The neck is one-piece maple with a bone nut, 22 Wagner frets, and Sperzel locking tuners. Feels like the best 50's Telecaster you've ever played. Haussel pickups: single coil, Broadcaster-style bridge pickup, with a "Tauschsound" humbucking neck pickup. It has a coil-tap switch, which gives a vast array of tonal possibilities. The neck pickup sounds like a vintage PAF! This guitar has monstrous tone, vintage vibe, with modern sensibilities. Keith Richards would love this guitar. Awesome in every way. Comes with original hard case.Learn More
I love it when different genres merge together and form something unique and cool. This beautiful guitar was inspired by the great Alfred Hitchcock movie, "The Birds". So, film-music and wonderful craftmenship have joined together to create this beautiful instrument. It is a 2009 PRS Limited Edition Bodega Bay model with a Birdseye maple top that looks like the birds flying over Bodega Bay. Poor Tippi Hendren was driven to the brink of a nervous breakdown during the making of "The Birds". She suffered dearly, so the least you can do is buy this guitar. It was owned by a collector. We sold this originally, and the original owner picked it out of three other Bodega Bay models we had just received. This one had the very best top. It is in 100% mint condition. It was never played! You'll never find another in as perfect condition.

I've been describing guitars here since 1997. No idea how many. What I can say for sure is that I liked a bunch. Loved just a few. Hated even less. Mostly, I just kind of got along with the guitars and figured out what to say about them to help people decide each time if they should buy it or not. I never took that lightly, the part about whether you should buy a guitar. It's not the whole thing but it’s a big thing, getting the right guitar. This one...this guitar...
This is a guitar I want one of you to buy. Not all of you. Just the one who will understand. This guitar is my deep cut.
A deep cut is a little-known song from a well-known or respected artist. When musicians cover a deep cut, they hope to unearth a lost treasure, bring a bigger audience to a deserving work, pay homage to someone they appreciate, and maybe add a little something to it if they can. In a too-close-to-call race this may be one of the greatest all-around guitars I’ve ever played—certainly one of the most distinctive looking, and, I think, out of all the guitars I’ve ever played of any kind, the one that best expresses all the qualities I want in in my personal instruments - elegant and timeless aesthetics, superb craftsmanship, jaw dropping tone, and phenomenal playabilty. Buy this and you'll have an instrument for life.

"I've always thought CE's were really great guitars, and I couldn't be happier with this signature model. It can get pretty much any sound you want it to, it's super comfortable to play, and it's just cool to see a CE with a maple board and a Floyd. I hope everyone loves it as much as I do." - Dustie Waring / Between the Buried and Me
The progressive metal band Between the Buried and Me has a sound that is both heavy and melodic, lush and menacing. It is this demand for versatility without sacrifice that led to the development of guitarist Dustie Waring’s latest PRS signature model: the DW CE 24 “Floyd.” This model starts with the PRS CE bolt-on platform and includes a satin-finished maple neck, maple fretboard, a slightly modified Pattern Thin neck carve (Waring’s carve is slightly thinner front to back), and Floyd Rose tremolo system.
The pickups and electronics are also unique to Waring’s signature axe. The pickups are Waring’s signature Mojotone “DW Tomahawk” pickups. Made with a blend of Ceramic and Alnico magnets and a special winding technique, DW Tomahawks have plenty of output and big bottom end while remaining articulate and clear - a unique quality for high gain pickups. Paired with a volume and tone control and 5-way blade pickup selector that have been shi ed slightly to allow plenty of room to work the tremolo, the DW CE 24 “Floyd” is comfortable, fun, and inspiring to play.Learn More
This McCarty 594 features a 10-Top, Flamed maple neck, and Hybrid Hardware (not typically available on non-Artist Package guitars)
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
