Wow, do we have a special Stratocaster for you. One of the coolest Strats we've seen. We are proud to offer a 2007 Custom Shop 1960 Fender Reissue Stratocaster Closet Classic NAMM Show Limited Edition. It has a Sea Foam Green - Closet Classic finish, slab fingerboard, and (this part is so cool) it has a competition stripe like the 1960's Fender Mustangs. The competition stripe is Olympic White and looks so awesome...so cool that it makes me wonder why Fender didn't do this in the 60's. Remember Bill Wyman playing the Competion Stripe Mustang Bass? Well, you might not remember, but I do. I was there. Competition Stripes were so cool on Ford Mustangs, and just as cool on Fender Mustangs. The back plate is engraved, Limited Edition NAMM 2007. It's in perfect condition, shows no wear, the frets are perfect. The neck is straight and true. The neck has a medium "C" shaped profile, a 9.5" radius, and feels great. It sounds great: big, fat, Strat tone. This guitar has the best vibe, looks, feel, and tone. It's collectible now and you rarely see these come up for sale... grab it while you can. Comes with original case and all the original case candy, tags, strap, cable, certificate, the whole shebang.Learn More
Here's a super cool 2005 model Paul Reed Smith 20th Anniversary Custom 24 with beautiful quilted maple 10-Top, in Tortoise Shell finish. The Custom 24 is the original PRS...the guitar Paul Reed Smith took to his first tradeshow in 1985. It's been a professional standard and perennial favorite with musicians. What sets this Custom 24 20th Anniversary model apart from others is the special "Birds In Flight" fingerboard inlay and "20th" truss rod cover. Collector owned, it's in 99%, near-mint condition, showing only the slightest surface scratches (so slight you have to look at the guitar in just the right light and at just the right angle to even see it). I've seen brand new guitars hanging in other stores that show more wear than this guitar. No dents or dings. The frets are in perfect, unplayed condition. The neck is straight and true. It's set up beautifully. The action is low, fast, and without buzz. The 25" scale coupled with the ultra comfortable Pattern Thin neck carve, is a breeze to play. Pickups are HFS/Vintage Bass. This one comes with the famous PRS Tremolo bridge, Phase II locking tuners, 5 way rotary switch, tremolo bar, original hang tags, warranty papers, and original case (that shows a few scuffs).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
