 A Matchless JJ-30 John Jorgenson Signature Series, w/cover, for $3499 ...world-class.



2008 Gibson Custom Figured Top ES335 in "Cherry" condition.  With original hard shell case and Certificate of Authenticity a bit of a deal @ $2199.






So, where else you gonna get a GREAT 1963 Fender P-Bass with OHSC for under $3000?


A rare & wonderful 1980 Music Man Sabre Fretless bass.  Very clean & original...only the strap buttons have been changed.  It set up just right and has it's original teardrop case!!




Godin A12 electric semi-hollow 12 String ....Godin's entry in the very small group of electric 12 string guitars.  A chambered maple body and solid cedar top provide the rich tone thru the custom under saddle pick-up with volume & 3 tone controls.  Tres bon all around!





How about a nice Schecter Omen 6 for $179?





Circa 1990 Mesa Boogie 50 Caliber+.  Original and still screaming!  You can own this near classic amp for $699.




Back in black, a Godin A6 Ultra.  Featuring a chambered maple body with solid cedar top, chrome covered humbucker & custom undersaddle pick-up....with master volume, blend and separate tone controls....kinda does it all!

2004 Fishman Loudbox PRO-LBX-001....is this the original Loudbox?  In good working order, $349.





Remember the 1950s Stella Tenor Guitar I did tons of work to and sold a couple of months ago?  Another one just showed up and it did not need hardly any work.












Very clean & original mid 1990s Carvin 5 string fretless Bunny Brunell BB75.  Jazz bass style pick-ups with active tone, Sperzel locking tuners, Koa & Maple neckthrough design, gold hardware & OHSC.


Digital recording with the satisfaction of sliders & knobs!  Boss BR-8 with all the needed accessories & a bag to put it all in.


Speaking of digital recording...this Sony MD Walkman may be handy as well.  Plus, it can connect to the BR-8 for more versatility.  It also has all the accessories and a bag.











Very clean, very original, one owner 1966 Ampeg B-15-N.  The best sounding bass amp ever, so say we all.


Hand-made replica of a 1959 Fender Bassman 5F6-A amp in a single 12" cab.  TOP quality thru-out!  This was made late last century by Norm Pelletier of Maine for a friend of his.  Take a peek...

.....beautiful point-to-point wiring, all tube and a Webber12F speaker.  The cab was made by Larry Rogers and is solid pine with tooled leather covering and a cane grille.  Yes, it sounds as good as all that!!



Norm also made a matching reverb.................................






The legendary Roland Jazz Chorus, JC, 120.  Loud, clean and of course the unique stereo Vibrato/Chorus.  This one has it's original cover and footswitch too!



Replica of a Fender 6G15 Tube Reverb.  Made by Norm Pelletier of Maine.  Features tooled leather covering & cane grille, 1-6V6 & 2-12AX7 tubes & Dwell, Mix & Tone controls.



oh, and here's a peek inside....


Sure, a Fender Bassman is great for guitar but, what's a better tube amp for bass?  Why, this early 1970s Music Man HD130.  Enough power to gig and plenty-o-tone.  This one is clean and working just fine for $499.

The Peter Meyer Custom Tele has a big price reduction....now, $999.  Still the great handmade, except the Warmoth neck, guitar with Lollar Imperials, Schaller tuners, Hipshot bridge, bone nut, solid spruce top & solid mahogany chambered body....whole lotta guitar!!








Handsome Crate Vintage Club 212E speaker cab. Rated at 60 watts-16ohms with 2 12" speakers.  Priced to move at $169!


We can now help you achieve zero-waste.  Using the D'Addario Playback String Recycling Program all you need to do is bring your old strings here and put them in the box.  When it's full I just tape it up and send it off to Terra-Cycle in New Jersey where your old strings will be made into many things.  All strings are acceptable.   


Script logo, 1975, MXR Dyna Comp.  Other then the foam padding, which I replaced 'cause the old foam was disintegrated, all original and working fine.  Back in the day this was the only choice for a great compressor.




Segova MIJ copy of DeArmand sliding archtop guitar pick-up.  It works fine & has volume & tone controls.











1997, made in USA, Fender Jazz Bass Deluxe Active in "Mint" condition.  And, in the rare Transparent Blue color too!  Very low mileage and playing great.  Includes OHSC.




A circa 1977 Unicord Model 255....nicely built, attractive and sounding quite nice.





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.
