Here's a rare opportunity....a pristine 2007 Collings 0003 Cutaway just became available!  Many guitarist believe Collings' makes the BEST acoustic guitars anywhere....I wouldn't argue much if at all.  This one has a K&K Pick-up, is all solid, top quality woods and its original HSC for $3500.

Late 1970s Music Man 410 Sixty Five.  The BIG boy with 4 10" speakers and EL34 power.  Sounds good with most any instrument and packs a punch when needed.  With original footswitch the price is $699.

A Gibson-made, all solid wood, arch top guitar in shockingly clean & original condition that plays and sounds great for $1499?  Yup, that would be this 1938 Kalamzoo KG31.

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 $1999 is actually quite reasonable!




A 2002 MAZ Senior 38 Watt head with custom-made cover....$999.


A Best 2X12 with Tone Tubby Brown Hemp Cone speakers....$499.

A 1998 MAZ Junior 18 Watt head....$999

A Backline 4X10 equipped with Tone Tubby Brown Sound Hemp Cone speakers....$499.


All the above are low mileage, working perfectly and hand-made to the highest specifications!




Ready for a Robo-Tuner guitar?  Here's a 2014 Gibson Les Paul Futura Min-ETune in Pacific Blue Fade.  Also has dual coil-cuts and a 15db boost push-push pot.  Whole lotta guitar for $699.    




Or, perhaps you'd like an interesting guitar that needs some upgrades.....

Like this War Lord Strat.  It is a neck-thru body, hardtail string-thru mystery.  I figure the wood is worth $299 and the hardware is nearly worthless, although it does all work.  Add better tuners, bridge and electronics and, with a bit of woodworking, you'd have quite a nice guitar.


According to the date on the DeArmond Gold Foil Pick-ups this is a 1972 S-72 Harmony Rebel.  Fully functional, although the sliders are a bit touchy, and in good clean condition with good action.  Our very nice price is $399.

See below for a Rebel Reissue.......


The latest creation from Mike Endicott.....he had a 1970 or so Gibson EB-0 body and pick-up and decided to make an EB-3.  One handmade neck, a second pick-up and paint job later...a great short scale bass.  A tough one to price but we are starting at $1499. 













1960s Kay Vanguard Set....."Magical" guitar & Vanguard Vibrato amp.  Where else ya gonna find gear like this?  $459 for both of 'em!






A great sounding, one owner, 1970 Martin D-18.  No cracks, no repairs, nothing loose but the action is on the high side thus the price of $1199.








A 2009 Stromberg Custom Newport jazz-box in "Like New" condition. It has a few features not found on the regular Newport like a Tusq nut, Grover Waffleback Tuners, Kent Armstrong HJGS6-G Pick-up, dot inlays and a few other details.  Overall quite a nice guitar with plenty of acoustic tone.  With that TKL hard shell case the price is $899.  











Near mint, made in USA, Budda Super Drive 18 Series II head.  18 tube rectifier watts and sounding great!!  With original footswitch it is available for $699.

Seagull Entourage Rustic Mini Jumbo.  A bit smaller than a dreadnaught with a bit more volume & tone than a Folk size.  Sound perfect?  So is the price of $399!





The ever popular Art & Lutherie AMI Cedar Antiqueburst.  We think it is the BEST Parlor guitar going, especially for $359.

And a new one from Godin.....the Seagull Entourage Burnt Umber Folk Q1T.  Highly desirable smaller Folk size with unique Burnt Umber finish and built-in electronics including a chromatic tuner....whole lotta guitar for $459.







Another cool one....a Harmony Rebel Reissue MIK.  Plenty of uniqueness with slider pots, dual pickguard, double sharp cutaways and being semi-hollow.  For $299 it will make spice up any collection




Made in Japan, 1985-1987, Aria Pro II ZZ Standard.  Looks to be 100% original and in VG++++ condition....plays very nicely too!  With it's OHSC we are asking $299.





One of the 356 Hagstrom Jimmy D'Aquisto oval soundhole archtops ever made.  This one is from 1977 and looks to be all original except for the pick-up which is a Stonewall Custom XRB (handmade in Dover, NH).  As with any guitar this rare pricing is a challenge.  After some research and conversation with the owner we decided to offer it for $2999 with that newer HSC.









A Godin La Patire Concert, all solid (cedar top, mahogany back and sides) nylon string/classical which is $559 with a hard shell case.  May be the best deal in the nylon string world.








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.
