Eastman E60M all solid spruce & mahogany with LR Baggs Anthem 1 electronics and a HSC for $499.  NOT a lot of money for a very nice guitar!



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.

Barely used set of Peter Florance TE-50 Telecaster Pick-ups.....$135.



One of the all time great guitar amps....1977 Music Man HD-130.  This one is in good working order with new power tubes and is priced to move @ $499.



There is no makers name for this Hand Made Custom Jumbo Gibson J200 Style from Australia but I can tell it is very nicely done.  AAA solid spruce top, ebony fingerboard, solid oak back & sides, lots of real abalone, wood bindings, edges and purfling, buffalo bone bridge pins, nut & saddle, a Dean Markley Soundhole Pick-up and a custom-fit HSC!!  Pricing was a challenge but $999 seemed like a fair price for a guitar of this quality.


A wonderful, unique guitar built by old friend Peter Meyer of Gloucester, MA.  The solid mahogany body with solid spruce top may make you think acoustic but the semi-hollow design, Tele shape, Hipshot bridge & Lollar Imperial Pick-ups are all electric!  The neck is a compound radius Warmoth with a bone nut and Schaller tuners.  You got to give it a try.....or just buy it for $1499.



The all time best selling Seagull is back.  The S6 Original.  Nothing fancy just a plain old great guitar for $399. 




2015 Epiphone Les Paul standard Pro in "better than new" condition with a pair of Duncan Pearly Gates humbuckers.  And a nice hard shell case all for $399.



A 2006 Fender American Standard Strat with a Warmoth Swamp Ash body, Callahan trem block and Tusq nut added....came out very nice.  As usual mods don't add to the value of a guitar making this at $599 kind of a sweet deal.




1984, made in England, Marshall Lead 12 Model 5005 in super clean, good working condition.  We thought, at the time, this was the best sounding little solid state amp available.  Priced at $179 with original cover is pretty nice too.







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.


1960s all solid wood Harmony Sovereign with Chris Pearne improvements....was & remains "best guitar for the money" at $499.










A tube amp with amp modeling & digital effects?  The Fender Super Champ X2 got ya covered.  This one is Sonic Blue and in "like new" condition for $299.

Another great $99 guitar.....a Montana MT104.






1967 Fender Bassman 2X12" Cab with Utah MH121C speakers.  May sound better then whatever you already have.  $299 and she's yours.




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 and it came out very nicely.  We figure $750 is a good price.







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




The "Little" Martin, an LXME acou/elec, with that nice gig bag for $279.


Circa 1970 Sears (Silvertone?) 5 XL Model No. 257.1424301.  Sure, it's solid state but hey, it sounds pretty swell and it is a mere $99.




Cosmetically challenged early '70s Korean Sekova short scale bass.  I tweeked it to the max and she plays just fine.  A real "beater bass" for $79.












Brand new Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin P90.  Many customers have requested so I got.  $699 is the price. 





Perfectly good Peavey Milestone IV P-Bass......$99.









A low mileage Epiphone Masterbuilt AJ45ME in sunburst.  Solid spruce top, solid mahogany back & sides, Shadow electronics, Grover Sta-Tite tuners, great action and plenty of tone.....all for $499 with that HSC.


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

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