 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?


I've had much interest whenever a used Godin Multiac becomes available....thought it must be time to get a new one.  This is the Nylon Encore model with under-the-saddle and dual element (inside the body) pick-ups.  A solid cedar top and maple body provide the tones.  Street price is $849 & so is ours.


It's a Stella/Harmony Tenor Guitar so it is old!  I took it most of the way apart, re-glued everything and she lives!!  Tuned in 5ths (C-G-D-A) it sounds half way between a guitar & a mandolin.  Despite about $400 of work I will be happy selling it for $199 because it was a fun job.

From Fenders "2nd solid stae era". a mid 1980s Yale Reverb.  50 watts into a 12" speaker, OD options and very nice reverb all for $229.






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


Banjo anyone?  A Savannah SB-106 GuitJo in good wqorking order....$179.







Very light (22lbs) 100 watt Bass Amp?  This Fender Rumble 100 is the one.  In "like new" condition for $229.




Samick HFB-590 Acoustic/Electric Bass in good working order with OHSC.....$199.









1995 made in Mexico Fender Telecaster in VG++++ condition....$329.



Very clean Kala U-Bass-SSMHG-FS....the smallest good sounding bass ever!  Stand out in a crowd for only $249.












Yes indeed, that is a 1970 Fender Vibratone cab!!  Using the Leslie method of achieving a Doppler effect, the Vibratone was made for guitar not organ.  It has a 10" speaker and the connections needed to connect to your guitar amp.  The dual footswitch lets you send your guitar sound to your amps speaker alone or together with the Vibratone speaker...and it changes the Vibratone speed from slow to fast.  We did a good overhaul and all is good.  The price is $700 if you are so inclined.



Red Label, circa 1970, Yamaha FG-230 12 String.  Further proof that they just don't build 'em like they used to.  With a cool old "alligator" HSC the price is $299.






The one & only Roland JC-120 Jazz Chorus.  This one is very clean, original & in good working order....not sure of the date but probably from the 1980's -1990's.  I know they are big, heavy & loud but for $499 the sound is entirely worth owning.


Figures, after years with no JC-120s I get 2 in one week!  Like the one above this one is original and in good working order.  Since it also has the footswitch & cover it is available for $599.


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.













I'm calling it a 1978 Fender Tele plus. The neck & body are original '78, not sure what the bridge pick-up is but the neck is a Joe Barden Dual Blade, the tuners are Kluson Deluxe, the bridge is a compensated brass saddle Glendale, the pots are CTS, the caps are Orange Drops & the pickguard is a single ply black 5-hole. All in all a very nice Tele for $1269.









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













Peavey Black Widow 115 Enclosure.....$79!









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.
