We have a Fender Stratocaster with an Oct 1966 neck, showing some wear, with original frets, original lacquer finish, transition logo, and large headstock. The body is sunburst with a polyurethane finish, and three original grey bobbin pickups stamped 9439. The pickguard is white with white pearloid on the underneath. The pots are 1966, with original plastic wiring. Condition is very good plus. There is wear, nicks and dings, nothing major. It plays great and sounds fantastic. The neck plate is a four bolt F neck plate with serial number 270104 that corresponds to 1969. It has a clean, original black tolex case. It's hard to say if the neck is original to the body. You can make a case either way. I much prefer the lacquer neck, it feels great. It is all original vintage Fender parts, bridge saddles, three way switch and back cover plate.Learn More

Here's a 2016 PRS CE24 in a custom color - Charcoal Metallic with Black neck. It's in amazing condition. Near mint. It has scarcely been played, but should be because it plays amazingly. The 85/15 pickups are tone machines that can play any type of music from jazz, blues, classic rock, all the way to metal. With the push/pull you can get a nice Fender style single coil tone out of the neck or bridge pickups. Another great feature that benefits the tone is the brass contact points where the strings go around on the locking tuners. Paul Reed Smith himself has stated that it leads to better tone and sustain. With 24 frets the CE24 has endless capabilities and is a great addition to any guitar collection! Comes with original papers and gig bag.Learn More
This is my kind of guitar, a rock and roll animal. Here's a 1972 Gibson Les Paul Custom. It has had some mods: middle pickup added; a Badass bridge installed that entailed drilling new holes for the studs; and a Bigsby tailpiece was removed at some point. The pickups were changed to Seymour Duncan. Now here's the kicker, and it's a real kicker: Three, count them, 1 2 3 original Gibson Patent Number Decal pickups come with the guitar. How about that?! That's a thousand dollar value in itself. The tuners are Schallers. Bone nut. The pots date from 1972. The original sunburst finish is really cool. The frets are in excellent condition. There's the general amount of wear you'd expect from a 46 year old guitar. Overall the condition is very good. It plays and sounds great. It sounds great with the Seymour Duncan pickups, but you may prefer to put the original pickups back in it...your decision. It comes with the original hard case with purple lining. This is a great deal for a great guitar.Learn More

You know how some manufacturers will offer a "Limited Edition" model and make like 10,000? What's limited about that? How about a run of 24? Now that limited! We have 2014 GJ2 "Glendora NPG" made by Grover Jackson. It features a Basswood body, maple neck with ebony fingerboard, and reverse headstock. The finish is Jet Black with matching headstock. It has custom "Infinity" inlays on frets 5, 7, and 12; 10"-14" fingerboard radius, "Habenero" classic humbucking, and single coil pickups. It has black hardware with a non locking tremelo, and a blue hard-case made my G&G cases of Los Angeles. It is super clean, showing no wear. It plays great and sounds great. The neck is super fast, but a thin, wide profile that feels great. This is a rare guitar, and a great guitar...good combination.Learn More
Everybody here at the shop real digs this Music Man Valentine guitar. This one is used, but doesn't really look like it's been played. It still has plastic on the pickups and control cavity. We love the look of this guitar. It is a new, modern design, but it does have a certain vintage aesthetic as well. This guitar features a slab ash body, two Ernie Ball Music Man designed pickups (1-humbucker/1-single coil), with 3-way custom wired lever 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. It plays and sounds like a million bucks. Comes with original hard case.Learn More
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
Immortality, that's what humans have longed for since the beginning of time. Y. Sandoval has achieved immortality in a weird way. Who is this person? Well, we don't know much, but he or she worked for Fender in 1969, 1970, and perhaps longer. This person took pride in their work because the 1970 Fender Telecaster we have has a rubber stamp ink marker, "Wired By Y. Sandoval" stamped under pickguard. How cool is that? I've seen a 69 tele that has the same stamp. I love that. Here you are working a job, it's a paycheck, then almost 50 years later somebody calls you and says, "You did an excellent job wiring the Fender Telecaster I just got." That would have to make to you feel great. Here we have a 1970 Fender Telecaster. It's all original with a maple fingerboard. The pickguard is original with the pearloid pattern on one side. The pots are dated 1966 which is correct. There is some cosmetic wear: a scrape down to the wood on one side, various nicks and dings. Overall, it's clean, especially considering the age. The frets are fine. It plays great, and sounds fantastic. Thanks to the excellent wiring job by Y. Sandoval, the electronics work perfectly. This is a great Telecaster and comes with original hard case. With any luck you might hook up with Y. Sandoval and have a drink, and talk about your guitar.Learn More
OK, I realize I am a bit sluggish on certain things. It just dawned on that Gibson's Cardinal Red finish is named after the bird. I don't know why it took so long for that to click. Here we have a 1966 Gibson Melody Maker with the original Cardinal Red finish. It is all original with one pickup and tremelo. It's a cool guitar with great patina. Theres natural lacquer checking on the body. The neck feels great. The frets are fine and the electronics work perfectly. It has the old style knobs, black with a chrome insert. This is a cool, vintage Gibson. It's nice and clean with a pretty rare finish. It comes with a Gretsch Corvette soft case that fits it just fine.Learn More
This guitar was owned by a collector and is in near mint condition. It has amazing sustain and is exceptionally resonant when played unplugged...so much so it almost sounds like an acoustic guitar. That kind of resonance is always the sign of a superior instrument. It's extremely light weight too....only 7 pounds 6 ounces! The frets are perfect, and the neck is straight and true. Theres a small ding at the edge of the top of the upper horn and a few extremely faint button rubs on the back. An easy 9 out of 10 condition. The tailpiece post screw on the treble side has some marks on it. The pickups and electronics all work as they should. Everything functions perfectly. The original PRS paisley case is included.Learn More
Spec’d and approved by Paul himself, 53/10 pickups are the third installment in the vintage inspired series of PRS pickups and sound as warm as their singed appearance suggests. Paul worked with the PRS Sales Team to create a limited run of guitars around these pickups for their debut. Every aspect of this model, including its thin finish and excellent tone woods, was chosen to enhance the natural sound of these extraordinary pickups.
The 53/10 model utilizes the same PF09 ultra-thin, semi gloss nitro finish that was used on Paul’s Dirty 100, which adds to the natural resonance of the wood. Paired with select mahogany backs and Private Stock grade quilted maple tops that Paul had set aside, this 100 piece limited run is truly distinctive.
It's a rare occurrence to come across a vintage guitar with provenance. Many guitars have stories, but few can be proved. The story behind this guitar is amazing, and is well documented. This prototype G&L ASAT Classic was built for Dale L. Hyatt who was a close friend and partner of Leo Fender in the G&L guitar company. Mr. Hyatt worked closely with George Fullerton and Leo Fender on designs. Mr. Hyatt kept prototype guitars in his office to get feedback from dealers and players, with the thought of using their input in future designs. This guitar is a prototype, made for Mr Hyatt in 1991. It has two features that are unique and non-standard. First is the intensely figured Birdseye Maple neck that is drop dead gorgeous. Hyatt had been working with Gulag Gidwani, the owner of an exotic wood supply company that specialized in providing high end woods to instrument manufactures. The wood on the neck was purchased specifically for this instrument from Gulag's inventory. The second unique feature is the special two-tone, black/chrome Schaller tuning machines. These tuners were out of a prototype batch of tuners made by Helmut Schaller and were custom made for Mr. Hyatt.Learn More
It was Mr. Hyatt who convinced Leo Fender to name this model "ASAT Classic" because he felt it was classic in the same vein as the ASAT, featuring more traditional specs. The guitar was kept by Mr. Hyatt after his retirement and later on passed to his son. It is mint, not tampered with, and unplayed. It is the only one on the planet. Comes with original G&L advertisement pages from the time, G&L brochure, a copy of the G&L handwritten production sheet from 1991 showing this guitar, documentation from Kenneth L. Hyatt, Dale's son, who still works for G&L, a photo of Mr Hyatt with the guitar, and original hard case.
This is an extremely rare and difficult to find 1985 Kramer Baretta Guitar-Art graphic guitar. The art work is the Fantasy Series, Galactic Rainbow. According to VintageKramer.com. "These were introduced in the banana head stock era, so some of these graphics are very rare because you don't see them often on banana head stock Kramers." The artist, Shannon Hall, is internationally recognized and is now the official artist for the John Lennon estate.Learn More
This guitar is in excellent, near MINT condition. The previous owner said this guitar was in storage for 22 years from 1995 to 2017. The guitar is obviously a case queen, just look at the fine tuners on the Floyd and you'll see there's no wear or oxidation on the black finish. It has been professionally setup with 9 gauge guitar strings and plays like a dream.
Condition: The guitar has only very light swirl marks, 1 check (clear coat finish crack) on the back. The checking line runs from the back neck plate to the trem cover plate. You have to hold the guitar in just the right light at just the right angle for it to be visible. You can barely see it. Photos barely capture it. You can feel the head stock scarf joint line, which is common on these guitars. The joint is strong and has lasted 32 years. It has a factory neck shim. This is also very common. There is no rust on the Floyd Rose tremolo or rust on any of the hardware. The frets are like new and in perfect condition. It's a collector's grade instrument. I can not see any noticeable dents, dings, or scratches.
It feels heavy, so we are confident that it is a maple body Baretta. The guitar has a #4 written under the pickup. I do not know what this is in reference to. The Schaller reverse zebra humbucker pickup is dated 1/85. The guitar is an early D serial, #D-2949.
This is an amazing sounding and playing guitar. The original era Kramer hard shell case is included. The case alone is rare, with key locks, and worth a lot of money. I have not seen another Kramer case like this one. We do not have the keys.
Buy it fast before another collector gets their hands on it.
Note: The volume knob is not original.
