This stunning Grand Auditorium from Taylor's new Builder’s Edition collection features Hawaiian koa back and sides paired with a torrefied Sitka spruce top. The guitar was inspired by their groundbreaking V-Class bracing, which boosts the volume evenly across the tonal spectrum, increases the sustain, and improves the natural intonation of the guitar by creating a more orderly response from the soundboard. The result is a more harmonious relationship between the notes you play, helping chords sing with cohesive beauty. Another design emphasis of Builder’s Edition is enhanced playing comfort in the form of ergonomic new body contours. Details include a beveled armrest, beveled body edge treatment, and a reshaped cutaway that flows smoothly into the heel and incorporates a finger bevel where the cutaway meets the soundboard. This creates a more fluid path to the guitar’s upper-register notes for your fretting hand. Other refined touches include “silent” satin finish, which helps quiet the incidental noise against the guitar body, and a gorgeous new Kona burst that highlights the natural beauty of the figured koa back and sides. Inset koa/paua top and back trim adds a beautiful sparkle that complements the new Spring Vine fretboard inlay. In every way, this K14ce acoustic guitar embodies the ultimate player’s guitar and testifies to the benefits of innovative craftsmanship.Learn More
Taylor's popular Grand Auditorium 314ce is an acoustic workhorse that performs equally well in the practice room, recording studio, and on stage. This latest edition features their acclaimed V-Class bracing, a revolutionary innovation in acoustic sound that responds with greater musicality and harmonic agreement. By introducing a more orderly vibration to the guitar’s top, V-Class bolsters the sustain and volume to offer players a more dynamic voice to explore, while also resolving the minor intonation issues that players have long had to contend with. Together with a solid Sitka spruce top and solid sapele back and sides, you can expect a balanced and articulate blend of top-end brightness, midrange fullness, and low-end warmth that accommodates an array of playing styles. Appointments include black binding, Gemstone fretboard/peghead inlays in Italian acrylic, and satin-finish back and sides with a gloss top. A Venetian cutaway invites your fretting hand up the neck, while their proprietary ES2 electronics serve up faithful plugged-in tone. The guitar ships in a deluxe hardshell case.Learn More

"Our Jumbos". That's what George Harrison and John Lennon called their Gibson J-160E models.

1965 was a great year. The average cost of a new house was $13,600. Gas cost 31 cents a gallon. Pink Floyd was formed. The Rolling Stones released Vol.2, their second UK album. It was a great year for music, and a great year for the guitar too. 1963, 64 and 65 are my favorite years for Gibson acoustics. I love the necks, with a comfortable medium "C" profile and a great taper. I'm also a fan of the ceramic bridge saddle. The sound is amazing. Listen to the early Stones records, you will hear what I mean. We have a beautiful 1965 Gibson J-50 Adj. It's a super clean, one owner instrument. It has very light wear, like it was played a year, then put up. The natural finish shows very light lacquer checking. 1-11/16" nut width. The frets are fine with plenty of life in them. No repairs or modifications. It has no issues or problems. It's featherweight and sounds fantastic. This is a collector's grade instrument, there aren't that many this nice around. One of the best I've seen. Comes with original hardshell case.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.
This 509 should have left PRS as a Wood Library Special Run model but somehow did not. It has a spectacular flamed maple 10-top finished in a rare custom color - Charcoal Purple Burst, with a combination gold and nickel hardware. To top it off, this guitar has an Ebony fingerboard, Ebony headstock overlay, and Pau Shell Artist Grade original style Birds inlays. All these are options normally only available on a Wood Library guitar.Learn More
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
"It’s been a dream of mine for years to design a guitar that includes some of my favorite vintage specifications but with a modern spirit and aesthetic. After two years of study and refinement, the Silver Sky is my vision of what a reboot of the electric guitar should look and feel like." – John MayerLearn More
The PRS Silver Sky is the result of a close collaboration between Grammy Award-winning musician John Mayer and Paul Reed Smith. More than two and half years in the making, the Silver Sky is a vintage-inspired instrument that is at once familiar but also newly PRS through and through. This model was based off of Mayer and Smith’s favorite elements from 1963 and 1964 vintage instruments, resulting in an idealized version of a vintage single-coil guitar. The attention that was paid to every detail sets this guitar apart.
Some of the more distinctive specifications include, the headstock shape, tuners, neck and fretboard, bridge, and pickups and electronics. The headstock shape is based on PRS’s trademark design, but inverted to both accommodate Mayer’s playing style and also to keep a consistent length of string behind the nut, which makes staying in tune easier. The tuners are a traditional vintage-style, closed-back tuner, but with PRS’s locking design. The neck shape was modeled after 1963/1964 vintage instruments, and the fretboard has a 7.25” radius. The moment your hand grabs this neck, it just feels right. Like the tuners, the steel tremolo takes a classic design and incorporates PRS’s trem arm and Gen III knife-edge screws. The bridge on the Silver Sky is setup flush to the body in the neutral position so that the tremolo bridge only goes down in pitch. By keeping the bridge in contact with the body, the guitar itself is acoustically louder, which improves the signal to noise ratio of the single-coil pickups. The 635JM single-coil pickups are very round and full, with a musical high end that is never “ice-picky” or brash.
Other high-quality specifications include a bone nut, a molded metal jack plate that is curved and makes plugging and unplugging a guitar cable hassle-free, retooled knobs, fretwire that is slightly smaller than what you’d find on most PRS electric guitars, and PRS’s double action truss rod (accessible from the front of the headstock for ease of use).
