Never-played 2005 Fender Custom Shop 1960 Stratocaster NOS with OHSC and all the case candy......$2500.

Godins VERY popular Seagull S6 Mahogany Deluxe A/E....which translates to an S6 Dreadnaught with solid mahogany top, mahogany back & sides, a built-in pickup and the usual Seagull quality.  A great, warm-toned guitar for $499. 




The plain (un-fancy) Seagull S6 Classic M-450T acoustic/electric.  As always, made in Canada with a solid cedar top and cherry back & sides.  Also a B Band pick-up system with built-in tuner and a gig bag for $399.






1996 Ampeg Reverberocket R-12R.  All tube update of a classic amp.  Great reverb (of course), clean & gain channels, footswitch and a 12" speaker.....all for $529.




Attention.....anyone looking for a "used Rick".  This 2002 Ricknebacker 330 is available!  It has barely been played and can almost pass for new!!  With that OHSC and paperwork it is up for $1299. 


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. 



1970s Ampeg VT22....the king of clean & loud!  All tube, 2X12", reverb and casters!!  In clean and working fine condition it is a mere $499.










They tell me this new Snark ST-8 tunes better then the old Snarks.....not sure that is possible!  I got the introductory deal so the price remains at $17 for now.




1983 Marshall JCM 800 Lead Series Model 2205 50 watt (6550) with reverb and Calzone road case $1099.  Need I say more???





A Left-Handed Gibson Gold Top Les Paul Studio!!  Made in USA 2012 and in near perfect condition.  The price of $799 includes a hard shell case and case candy.



2008 Epiphone 1958 Korina Flying V in immaculate condition....$499 with hard shell case.







Low mileage, very clean and original, 1991 Gibson Les Paul classic 1960 Reissue.  Mighty fine guitar for $1299 with OHSC.


An interesting item.....a Kay Vanguard Vibrato Model 704.  Apparently one of the first solid state guitar amps made by Kay starting in 1962!  It is gaining some attention for it's tone as it is point to point wiring, made in the USA and the same general circuit as Kays' tube amps.  A little cleaning and she is up & running fine.  I will add it is a very sharp looking amp for $99 as well.

In the shop for repair....let you know when it's ready to rock.




Latest additions to the used pedal display....



From top left....A Malekko Spring Chicken Reverb for $129, Pigtronix Class A Boost for $69, a 1973 DOD Phasor 201 $99 and the Xotic Bass BB Preamp for $99.








Need to get your acoustic guitar above the band?  You need this Fender Acoustasonic SFXII.  It is 160 watts and fully equipped with digital FX, a seperate Mic channel & all the ins and outs you'll ever want.  With its cover and footswitch the price is $399.







1996 Marshall Slash Signature 2555SL amp & 1960ASL-412 cab....one of the 3000 ever made....one owner....comes with all the accessories....is in perfect condition....$2500.





Sure it looks like any old Epiphone Rivoli from 1997 but, that's a Curtis Novak Mudbucker EB-FAT pick-up which adds some compexity.  In VG+++++ condition and with that HSC could be yours for $699. 









Our old friend Rockys Eastman MD 515 all solid & carved mandolin.  It's a beauty and sounds great.....you may have heard it at one of the many hoots Rocky used to host.  The price is $699 with that Gator case.







The new NS Designs Soundhole Chromatic Acoustic Guitar Tuner.  Nearly invisible, EZ to clip-on & remove, accurate and only $20.













The "Better" classical....a Manuel Rodriguez Model A Cutaway.  It may have been made in Spain, has a Fishman Clasica III pick-up system and HSC for $459.








Here's Mike Endicotts latest creation....an original this time!  The one & only Electric Fretless Bass Banjo.  Lipstick pick-up with volume control....Must be played to experience its unique tones.  We decided $999 was the right price.







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.
