Blast from the '80s....A Gallien Krueger 400RB Bass Amp.  They were highly regarded then and remain so.  The 400 is 200 watts, sounds great and is very portable.....all for $229.


1963 Fender P-Bass in all it's glory.  Original except for pots and jack and a mediocre paint job.  Plays great and sounds even better!  Priced to move at $3900 with original hard shell case.

Want to play bass?  Here's a nice starter Silvertone Bass rig for you.  P-Bass style bass, bass amp & gig bag all for $139.



OK, I stand corrected.....I have now heard  a world class sounding guitar amp with a solid state rectifier....This Morgan Custom Shop PX50.  Made in the USA with 6550 power tubes and nothing but the best components through out.   People compare it to a Dumble, I've never played thru one so I can't say but I can tell you it does sound and respond extremely well.  The price of $1799 is actually quite reasonable!


Mint Ibanez SA2120FM set neck, DiMarzio loaded, flame maple machine.  With original Prestige hard shell case it is $699.


Near mint, MIK, 2016 Gretsch G5620T in Georgia Green. All the right stuff including a Deluxe Gator hard shell case.....$599.





A real good case....the Humicase Metro Pro for Dreadnaught size guitars.  Includes a couple extra humidity pacs for $199.




Brand new, 2017, Godin A6 Ultra SG at the nice price of $699. 








A pair of awesome, handmade in USA, all tube, 25 watt Headstrong Lil King "S" Reverb guitar amps!  Both are one-of-a-kind ("S" for special) with beefed up power transformers to power the pair of 6L6s.  Otherwise pretty stock.  The top one, with Grape tolex, has a Scumback J75-PVC 12" speaker.  The bottom one, with brown paisley tolex, has an Eminence Legend 12" speaker.  Both sound great, have nice tremolo, wicked reverb, tube rectifiers and covers.  Your choice at $1250 each.

















"Like new" Jackson X Series Soloist. Quite a nice guitar PLUS it has a pair of Gibson Tony Iommi Humbuckers.....how can you go wrong for $299?


Low mileage 2007 Reverend Manta Ray with OHSC....$499.  I think best Korean guitars ever!














Hand made 5 string banjo.  Made by Mike Endicott and his friend Jeff Wager, it has a birdseye maple pot, ebony fingerboard and a truss rod.  They just finished it last week and it came out very nicely.  We figure $750 is a sweet price.

The fancy Epi.....an Epiphone Sheraton II VS from 2008.  No issues here just a sweet deal at $399 with HSC.





A pristine 2009 Martin D28 with original hard shell case for $1799............Beat that!!



The little bass cab that can....a 1992 Bag End S15-C.  Handles 200 watts with ease and sounds good doing it.  This one is available for $229.


Another used Collings!!!  This one is a fine 2000 D1AV Dreadnaught.  It has a solid Adirondack spruce top, ebony, 1 3/4" at the nut, fingerboard. solid mahogany back & sides, modified full-size compensated saddle, K&K Pick-up, Waverly tuners and its original HSC all for $2999.



Our favorite cheap guitar amp circa 2001....a Danelectro Nifty Fifty.  For $69 it still blows away most of the competition!








Lefty alert...."nearly new" 2015 Martin D12X1 AE.  Great playing, big sound acoustic electric 12 string.  With nice Gator HSC a mere $599.

Or, this nice, made in Korea, Epiphone Les Paul with handmade bone nut for $259.






I know a few of you are looking for a good starter Classical/Nylon String Guitar.  This is the one for you.....a Ventura VWDO4....and they are in stock.


Pristine Alvarez Yairi YB1 Baritone Guitar.  Tons-o-fun with big fat bottom end.  With OHSC it is available for $859.





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.
