(scroll to the top or bottom of this page for more info)


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.

"Nearly New" Ibanez ART300 Brown Caymen...yup, the one with the "Reptile" top.  Nicely constructed with mahogany, maple top and active humbuckers.  Is there a better guitar for $199???


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.


Vox Mini 3 G2 portable guitar amp (AC or batteries) with modeling & digital FX & mic input....all for $69!



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. 


A lightly used Art & Lutherie AMI Cedar from 2016.  Does not get better in a moderately priced parlor-size guitar.  This one is $329 with that TRIC case.






A mighty Ampeg VT221 from the early '70s.....$499.  All tube, 2X12", 100 watt (or more) classic!  Not for the faint of heart. 


All solid mahogany Gretsch New Yorker G9310 Mandolin in "nearly new" condition.  The price, $159, includes that gig bag & a leather strap!



Vintage 3/4 size kids guitar...a wicked old Silvertone and a plastic Emenee Tiger Sunburst from the '60s.  Start your young guitarist on a cool guitar...either one $50.







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.


Brand new Godin Acousticaster DLX....the one that started the whole thin-body tele shape acoustic guitar with humbucker thing.  Featuring a solid spruce top, chambered mahogany body, mini-humbucker & under-the-saddle piezo pick-ups with dual inputs it does kinda do it all!  All day long the price is $1150.













York woodworker/guitarist Eric Fernald had a good idea for a handmade, wooden amp stand.....here's the prototype.  If there is demand he will make various sizes & shades.  We decided $39 was the nice price.

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.







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

2000 Fender Standard Strat with some upgrades...Texas Special Pick-ups, Locking Tuners, Black pickguard, knobs & covers and a hard shell case.   Plus, it is in "barely used" condition!  Your turn for $359.






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.
















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.

Very clean & pretty nice Squier Affinty Strat.....$99!







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

Just ask BB King, he loves his Lab L5!  This one looks to be late '70s and original.  Got the blues?  Try this for $399.











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 (PRICE REDUCED TO $399) with that HSC.



A pair of Fender HM 2-12 vertical slant cabs....big sound & portable....$159 each.
