"A lilac by any other name, would smell just as sweet". Hey! That's not how that goes. Somebody is trying to sabotage my description. I know who it is, it's this guy trying to get my gig. Well, it ain't gonna work. Now, what we have here is a 2015 Fender FSR Classic Series '60s Strat Special Edition in Lilac finish. Made in Mexico. It's in near-mint condition with only some slight pick marks on the pickguard. The neck is straight and true. The frets are in mint condition. For this Special Edition Strat, Fender went back to the original vintage '60s auto paint sample sheets and chose stunning alternate custom colors. The Lilac finish is very cool and rather subtle....looks almost like Olympic White with just a slight bit of Lilac tint. Not only does it look great, it also plays and sounds great. Nice, fast action, and a comfortable neck profile. Comes with gig bag.Learn More
Here we have a 1976 Gibson ES-335TD with a factory original Burgundy Red finish. The serial number is 00 147142, which is on a decal on the back of the neck. That numbering system was only used for three years. The tuners have been changed to Schallers. The hardware is chrome. There is some pitting on the pickup covers, bridge and tailpiece. The tailpiece has been converted from trapeze to a stop tailpiece; a big improvement in tone. The pickups are "tar back" style. The pickups were used for a period of time during the 70's. The pickups themselves are encased in plastic to stop feedback. They sound really good and the pickups alone typically sell on ebay for over $200 each. It has a factory phase switch that Gibson used on the 335 models for about three years. The frets show wear, but still have life left in them. There is age appropriate nicks and dings, and wear. This guitar is structurally solid, very comfortable to play, and the overall condition is good. It sounds great and with the factory phase switch it is extremely versatile. It's a cool vintage Gibson that won't break the bank. Comes with original hard case.Learn More
So, I'm researching this guitar, and I find out it is a 1950 model. I started telling everybody, "Man, this is an old guitar, 1950!" Everybody at the shop says, "That IS old!" Then I realize, I was born in 1951. So from now on I'm not saying anything about a guitar being old. We are offering a Gibson L-4 made in 1950. The back of the neck has been refinished. There was a crack in the headstock on the low E string side that was repaired, pro job. The body finish is original. The tailpiece has been changed. It is the same style as the original. The bridge thumb wheels have been changed, but the bridge is original. It is missing the pickguard. The tuners are repro Kluson style. There is a plugged jack-hole on the lower bout. There is a fair amount of pick wear on the top. It was well-used and well-loved. It plays fine, sounds great, and looks very cool. The frets have been professionally refretted and are in near perfect shape. The action is great; comfortable and fast. It is a very cool, vintage guitar. Great for jazz, blues, or whatever. Comes with a hardshell case that's not in great shape, but will be fine to store it and ship it in. This is a real vintage Gibson, one of their mid line models for $2000, which is a great deal.Learn More
Here's a super cool bass that you don't see very often. We have a 1963 Gretsch 6070 Country Gentleman hollow body bass. Featues one single Gretsch Supertron pickup. This is a great sounding bass, perfect for blues, jump blues, jazz, rock, anything you want. The neck feel has a similar profile to an upright bass: BIG and full, and it has that upright bass thump too, even when it's plugged in. Just so cool. Now the downside: it has the typical vintage Gretsch binding issues, which means it's going brittle and crumbling. The previous owner says the binding hasn't changed in the last 20 years, and it does appear to be stable. If it were mine, I would leave the binding alone. It certainly doesn't affect the sound or playability. The finish is original...everything is original for that matter. We are selling it as-is regarding cosmetic issues, but we guarantee that the bass works and plays fine. The frets are in good shape. This bass has had flatwound strings on it its entire life, so the fingerboard is in fine shape. The bass player for the Sons Of Champlin played a bass just like this at the Human Be In in San Francisco, so there's that. There is no case and no stand post.Learn More
Geez, I wanted a Vox Phantom so badly in 1965. Brian Jones played one and he was the bomb. In my mind he was just the coolest guy ever. When I saw my first real Vox in person at Melody Music here in Memphis, I was stunned. I was even more stunned by the case. It was different than any other guitar case I had ever seen. I've got the case. If you have the guitar but no case, we need to hook up. This is a mid sixties Vox case measuring 44" long, 5 3/4" wide at the top width, 17" wide and 4 1/4" deep. The latches and hinges work fine, and the tolex is in good shape. There is some wear but it is in remarkably good condition, especially considering its age.Learn More
