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
This is a nice guitar, kind of rare too. We have a Gretsch 7660 Chet Atkins Nashville made in 1973. It features a Bigsby tailpiece, open F-holes, two black top filtertron pickups, Burns gearbox for truss rod adjustment, and Van Zandt tuners. This was made in the USA and is one of the early Baldwin made instruments. It is very clean and nice. The overall condition is excellent. There is some wear on the gold hardware. The frets are fine. It comes in a 1960's Gretsch hard case. I love the neck, with a 1-11/16" nut width and very comfortable slim "C" shape profile. This is a chance to own a vintage, USA made Gretsch without breaking the bank.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
I love the way a double bound Tele looks. When Fender introduced the Custom Telecaster in 1959, with a bound body and rosewood fingerboard, it took the model to another level of good looks. This USA made G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy 90 is in 100% mint condition. Collector owned, we've looked it over very carefully and can't find any signs of wear. Frets are perfect. The neck is straight and true. Action is low and without buzz. The plastic protective coating is still on the pickguard. It has a number of very cool upgraded options - Double Bound Body, Schaller Locking Tuners, Vintage Tint Gloss finished neck, Quartersawn Maple neck. It plays and sounds fantastic. Comes with original G&G hardshell case, hang tags, certificate, and all paperwork.Learn More
The G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy 90 solves the age-old problem of this iconic design: How to get more body and attack out to the neck pickup without losing the warm tone. G&L has designed a great P-90 pickup that perfectly compliments the the twangy punch of their excellent MFD bridge pickup. With great balance and flexibility, this may be the ultimate Bluesboy.
There's something about a black Fender Telecaster. They look so cool. We just got a good one in, a 1989 made in the USA Fender Telecaster. It has a maple neck, Alder body, original black finish, and original three ply pickguard. This guitar has had some money put into it and has been well maintained. The bridge pickup was upgraded with a Seymour Duncan APTL-1 Alnico Pro II (a $69 pickup) that sounds fantastic. The frets were professionally leveled and polished (a $120 job). The guitar has had a pro set up. It plays perfectly and sounds awesome. It's good to go right out of the box. There is some cosmetic wear and some chips around the edge of the body, nothing major and what you'd expect from a 29 year old guitar that's been played. Telecasters from this time period aren't that common. It does everything a Telecaster is supposed to do. Comes with molded Fender hard case.Learn More
Some guitar finishes just bring a reaction out of you like, "Wow, that's cool!". Belair Green is one of those. Cars and guitars look great in this color. You can just imagine a '56 Chevy with this same finish. We have here an American made 2016 ASAT Special. It is in super clean, near mint condition. The frets are in perfect condition. The neck is straight and true. It plays and sounds great. Comes with spec sheet, certificate, and original hard case.Learn More
Are you a Breaking Benjamin fan? If so, you will certainly be a fan of their guitarist, Aaron Fink. Wouldn't it be cool to have one of Aaron Fink's guitars? How about Aaron Fink's Music Man baritone guitar that he owned and toured with? Well, we have it right here, an Ernie Ball Music Man Axis Baritone guitar. How about that? Pretty cool. Built in 2010. It has a white finish on top, bound body, black finish on the back of the body, two humbucking pickups and one knob. The frets are in near perfect condition showing only the slightest hints of being played. The neck is straight and true. It shows some wear, nothing major. It plays great, sounds great, and looks great. Think about this, you're at a gig, someone comes to you and says, "Hey, that looks like the guitar Aaron Fink plays, you smile wryly and say, "It IS his guitar." Wham! The guy hits the floor. Baritone Music Mans are very rare. This one is a once in a lifetime find. Coolness abounds with this guitar. Comes with hard case and 10 picks that were custom imprinted for Arron.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.
