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
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.

Here's an American made Ernie Ball Music Man Axis Super Sport with a beautiful quilted maple top. This is a premium upgraded option, finished in transparent red. This EBMM is in excellent condition, with some typical wear from a few years of playing. The top has some light surface swirls and pick marks that show up under direct lighting. All hardware looks immaculate, showing no wear. There are a couple of dents in the bottom edge on the back at the waist of the instrument. The glossy black back shows the typical button wear which is what you'd expect with a glossy black finish. The back of the satin neck is smooth and clean with no imperfections. The maple fingerboard looks great. The frets show only the slightest amount of play wear, mostly on the 2nd and 3rd frets. It's set up beautifully. The action is spot on, fast and super easy to play with no buzzing anywhere. The headstock looks great with one ding near the edge right next to the low E string tuner and other ding on the top edge near the logo. All the tuners work perfectly. The neck is straight and true. The truss rod has been tested and functions perfectly. All electronics work great and sound fantastic.Learn More

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.
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

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.

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
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
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.

It is very fitting that this guitar came in the shop. I saw the Zombies play just a few days ago and their guitarist was using one. I can testify to the versatility of this fine instrument. It is an amazing instrument, providing many different voices. The guitar has a beautiful, flame maple top, and ebony fingerboard. It is in excellent condition, showing virtually no wear. Plays great, and can do just about any sound you can think of...and lots that you didn't! Comes with gig bag and a Roland GRS-55 guitar synthesizer. You can do it ALL with this rig.Learn More
