100 watts, 15" speaker, plenty of features AND casters!  What more do you want in a bass amp for $199?









Handmade in Salem, MA this 1995 Mesrobian Standard Soloist is the real deal!!  Carved spruce top, ebony fingerboard, pickguard, bridge & tailpiece, curly maple 17" body, Schaller tuners and a Benedetto floating pick-up.  Sounds as good as it looks!  The price of $2499 includes that heavy duty HSC.





How about this beautiful, made in Westerly, RI, Guild X-170?  Known as the "Mini Manhatten" (as the body is only 2 1/2" deep)  it still qualifies as a Jazz Box.  Looks to be all original except the Duncan '59 in the neck (sounds better than the stock pup we think).  With a good heavy duty HSC it is available for $1199.









And now for something very different......a "Like New" Eastwood Rocket!  Blast off with this cool guitar for only $299!!     








Fully functional, like new, 2004 Death Star (Peavey Triple XXX 212 combo) for $499!!!










The Ukes are here!!!  Kohala & Lanakai models in all sizes and a nice Seasonal Sale, everyone of them comes with a FREE Gig Bag!!













Another "getting hard to find" item......a late '80's Mesa Boogie Studio 22 Plus.  It just got a fresh set of power tubes and is ready to rock!  $499 gets you the amp, footswitch & cover.











1983 Squier P-Bass made in Japan.  High quality workmanship and materials make this a real sleeper.  This one is very clean, set-up great and could grace your collection for $399.














2011 Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III Limited Edition "Red October".  Only 400 made with Bronco Red tolex & Eminence Red Coat Wizard 12" speaker.  "Like New" and includes cover for $599.

















Yup, thats a real deal blonde Fender stack!  A 1964 Bandmaster head sitting on a 1963 Bassman 2X12" cab.  Other than 1 newish Jensen P12R it looks very close to original.  I'm not sure an amp can be more beautiful than this!!  The head is $799, the cab is $599 or get both for $1300.....a beautiful deal too.  (Forgot to mention, original '60s covers are included).


















The acou/elec cutaway version of our VERY popular Austin AA25 folk size guitar, and it's only $229!
















Sure, this 1966 Ampeg SB-12 was intended for bass but as the Motown band (and many others) discovered it is a great amp for any instrument.  This one is all original and could be yours for $999.















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.
