This guitar is a joy to play: a 2016 Gibson ES-330 Memphis Historic Series 1961 Reissue. It has a Sixties Cherry red finish, two P-90 pickups with black covers, aged nickel plated parts, "Mickey Mouse" ears and dot fret markers. This guitar has one of the best necks ever: full "C" profile, somewhat chunky, that fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. Condition is excellent, super clean and nice. What's so cool is that this totally has the vintage vibe, but unlike a 50 year old guitar, everything works perfectly, with no issues. The ES-330, with its woody and bell-like timbre, has had some impressive devotees, Slim Harpo being my favorite. Also jazz players like Grant Green, bluesmen such as B.B. King, and rockers, including Keith Richards have used a 330 at one time or another. If you are fan of British Invasion stuff, this guitar is perfect as well. So many bands used this, or the Epiphone version of it. It comes with the original Gibson hard case.Learn More
Here's a cool, rare, and affordable vintage Gibson. Gibson in the mid seventies was floundering a bit, sales were slow, imports were taking a large chunk of their business. Somebody there decided it was time make a more affordable guitar in the USA. It wasn't around long, just two years from 1979 to 1980, and they really are quite scarce. It was a cool idea with a bolt on three piece mahogany neck with Indian rosewood fingerboard and solid mahogany body. The pickups are the original Dirty Fingers, and the wiring features the stock rotary coil-split. The bridge and control knobs are replacements. It shows some wear, nothing major. The frets are good, showing a bit of wear but still play well. Here's the really cool thing: it sounds great, a real screamer. Comes with Gibson gig bag.Learn More
Supreme, top of the line, doesn't get any better, the BEST! That's what Gibson had in mind when they made this model. Here we have a 2006 Gibson Les Paul Supreme. This guitar was previously owned by a gentleman who was an employee at Gibson. He was an engineer who helped design some of their digital gear. When he went to buy a Les Paul, he hand selected this guitar from Gibson's inventory because it had the best looking maple top. Primarily a bass player, he hardly ever played it. It is super clean and in near mint condition. No dings or nicks. The frets show no wear. It is set up with a AAAA-grade maple top and back, gold hardware, and upgraded inlays specific to the Supreme, slim tapered mahogany neck with white binding & black side dots, REAL ebony fingerboard. Multi-bound headstock with mother of pearl & abalone Supreme inlay. Gold truss rod cover with Les Paul engraving. Gold Grover tuners in perfect working condition. Multi-bound top & back. Arched back is a very unique feature and feels great against your body. Pickups are Gibson 490R & 498T Alnico humbuckers with gold covers. They sound great, nice and warm and punchy. It's a great guitar. Comes with original paperwork and hard case.Learn More
Here's a gorgeous Gibson Custom Shop ES-346. This rare model was produced from 1997-2000 and this one is from the first year of production, 1997. Session pro and Tonight Show guitarist Paul Jackson Jr. loved this model so much, and was so deserving of his own signature guitar, that in 2000 Gibson Custom Shop honored him by renaming the ES-346 as the Paul Jackson Jr. ES-346 signature model. This Gibson ES-346 is in near mint condition. The ES-346 had a reduced size ES-335 style body and a slimmed down headstock giving a straight string pull across the nut (similar to a PRS) which gives it greater tuning stability. Comes finished in a beautiful emberglo finish over an exceptional, highly figured flamed maple top. Equipped with 57 Classic pickups. The neck is straight and true and the frets are in perfect condition. Just set up, sounds amazing and plays that way too! This killer Custom can handle any style of music jazz to blues with enough attitude to rock! It has tight lows, even mids, and piano-like highs; with amazing sustain. Playing this guitar makes you feel like you're driving an Italian sports car through the Autobahn at 120 MPH! Comes with original paperwork and Gibson Custom Art & Historic Case.Learn More
I saw Eric Johnson play in 1988 at a tiny venue called The Antenna Club here in Memphis, just a block and a half away from where our shop is right now. That was after his "Tones" album had been released and a couple of years before "Ah Via Musicom". I didn't know much about Eric at the time and only went because I'd read an article in which Billy Gibbons said Eric was "an absolutely terrifying player", I figured if Billy thought the guy was great, then the guy had to be great. He opened the set with his now famous song, "Cliffs Of Dover". My jaw hit the floor, and from then on Eric Johnson has been one of my greatest guitar heroes. Here we have a 2006 Fender Eric Johnson Signature Model Stratocaster. This guitar is the brainchild of Johnson himself, designed with Eric's personal preferences and features. This Stratocaster is a result of his expressed desire to give back to collectors, players and; especially his fans. Eric Johnson is famously meticulous in crafting his tone, and every facet of the guitar is designed to Johnson’s own detailed specs, from the specially voiced pickups to the extra-contoured neck and body to the distinctive tremolo assembly and much more. A refined signature model honoring one of modern music’s finest Strat masters.Learn More
This 2006 Eric Johnson is in excellent condition, with just a few minor dents and scratches. The neck is straight and true. There is no fretwear.
includes the original paperwork and hardshell case.

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!

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.

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
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 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.
