NOT the newer, inferior, Yamaha FG150CCE but an original 1995.  Solid cedar top, ovangkil back & sides, cutaway, pick-up w/preamp and a "Segovia" HSC for just a bit more then the new version....that would be $229.


A Gibson-made, all solid wood, arch top guitar in shockingly clean & original condition that plays and sounds great for $1499?  Yup, that would be this 1938 Kalamzoo KG31.




A 2002 MAZ Senior 38 Watt head with custom-made cover....$999.


A Best 2X12 with Tone Tubby Brown Hemp Cone speakers....$499.

A 1998 MAZ Junior 18 Watt head....$999

A Backline 4X10 equipped with Tone Tubby Brown Sound Hemp Cone speakers....$499.


All the above are low mileage, working perfectly and hand-made to the highest specifications!





A "Like New" B Strat which is $99.  A Squier Bronco Bass which is also $99.  A Jay Turser 3/4 Mini Strat which is $69, as well as a slightly older, clearly better, Squier by Fender Strat for $129.  All benefited greatly from a good set-up and are now "perfectly good guitars".


Attention.....anyone looking for a "used Rick".  This 2002 Ricknebacker 330 is available!  It has barely been played and can almost pass for new!!  With that OHSC and paperwork it is up for $1299. 


The latest creation from Mike Endicott.....he had a 1970 or so Gibson EB-0 body and pick-up and decided to make an EB-3.  One handmade neck, a second pick-up and paint job later...a great short scale bass.  A tough one to price but we are starting at $1499. 













Part of Fenders 10 for 15 program (one limited edition model each month of 2015) this is May, 2015s American Standard Telecaster HH.  No longer available but here is a MINT condition one in Olympic White with Twin Head Vintage Humbuckers, block inlays, hardtail bridge & hard shell case full of candy.....all for $1199.






Peavey Classic 50 4X10 with footswitch and cover for $429.  They have proved to be very reliable and good sounding tube amps.




A 2009 Stromberg Custom Newport jazz-box in "Like New" condition. It has a few features not found on the regular Newport like a Tusq nut, Grover Waffleback Tuners, Kent Armstrong HJGS6-G Pick-up, dot inlays and a few other details.  Overall quite a nice guitar with plenty of acoustic tone.  With that TKL hard shell case the price is $899.  











It's called a Hofner Contemporary Club Guitar....it is on the new side and all good.  It is so cool I'm thinking $299 is a nice price.








The ever popular Art & Lutherie AMI Cedar Antiqueburst.  We think it is the BEST Parlor guitar going, especially for $359.








Another cool one....a Harmony Rebel Reissue MIK.  Plenty of uniqueness with slider pots, dual pickguard, double sharp cutaways and being semi-hollow.  For $299 it will make spice up any collection











One of the 356 Hagstrom Jimmy D'Aquisto oval soundhole archtops ever made.  This one is from 1977 and looks to be all original except for the pick-up which is a Stonewall Custom XRB (handmade in Dover, NH).  As with any guitar this rare pricing is a challenge.  After some research and conversation with the owner we decided to offer it for $2999 with that newer HSC.



"Like New" Blackstar HT-1R 1 watt tube amp loaded with features.  It was too modern sounding for the previous owner....you could give it a try for $199.










A Godin La Patire Concert, all solid (cedar top, mahogany back and sides) nylon string/classical which is $559 with a hard shell case.  May be the best deal in the nylon string world.








For those of you not familiar with what we do here at Gary's Guitars, "service" is the word to remember.  Next day guitar repairs, amp and electronic repairs by the end of the week.  A selection of guitars, amps and accessories that we have found to be tried and true, always a friendly ear and words of advice as well as some of the coolest, hard-to find-gear anywhere.  We strive to cover ALL the guitar basses 'cause we are the Seacoasts Guitar Specialists


That's the Gordon Carlisle mural.  I asked Gordon for something bright and, ya know, with a guitar in it.
