1968 Fender Twin Reverb.  Original Oxford speakers, footswitch, tilt-back legs great reverb and temolo and a cover for $1299.  The amp that sounds great ALL the time!!






You know how I'm always on the look out for the BEST starter-intermediate guitars.  Well, I just got my first shipment from the revitalized Ventura Guitar Company and they are GREAT!!  We have the V15 Parlor, the TSB V40, a V41 acou/elec and the VWD4 classical.  Keep an eye out I hope to have more soon.


The new, improved PA Rental deal.  A pair of Yamaha S12e speakers, a Peavey MP400 Powered Mixer and cables for $40 a day!  Add on a Shure SM 58 microphone or two (stand & cable included) for just $5 a day each.  Need it for more than 1 day?  Additional days are 1/2 price! 







Looking for a real nice nylon string?  Check out this 1992 Takamine NP-65C.  It was made in Japan and features a solid cedar top, rosewood back and sides, the Takamine Parametric EQ System and a hard shell case.......al for $499.






OMG, a newish all tube amp with a 15" speaker AND Tremolo!!  I was also surprised with the big, fat tone from this Peavey Delta Blues.  Overall, a very nice made in USA amp for $399.








Here's a high-demand item.....a used, 2001, Seagull S6 in very clean condition.  I get lots of requests but they don't turn up often enough to meet the demand so........BTW $249 is the price.







1992 Taylor 710LTD......used but not abused........sounding huge.......playing great.......$999 w/OHSC!!










I've learned that Roland seldom disappoints....the Acoustic Chorus AC-60 acoustic guitar/microphone amp is further proof.  Compact yet full featured it is all you need to sound great at your next acoustic gig.  The price of $249 includes the nice bag.













An Adirondack spruce top, solid mahogany back & sides, slope shouldered, hand carved scallop-braced, K&K equipped guitar with a deluxe HSC for $799?  You betcha!  This Eastman E10SS has the above plus a pro set-up by Jack O' Brien who also made a custom pickguard, installed the K&K system and adjusted the bone nut and saddle for perfect action and intonation. 
















A Gibson Les Paul Studio from "back in the day", ie 1988.  It has been beefed up with Grover tuners, an EMG 81 in the bridge & EMG 60 in the neck.  I gave it a good going over and she is playing and sounding just right!  The price of $699 includes an intact, unbroken, original Gibson HSC.

















Pictured above is a circa 1930s May Bell Tenor Banjo.  It has a calfskin head and plays just fine.  Could be yours for $129!













Come on, admit it, you are itching to try a 6 string banjatar.  Here's your chance.  A Like New Dean Backwoods 6 w/OHSC for $229.













For those of you not familiar with what we do here at Gary's, "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.
