1998 Fender American Deluxe Fat Strat in turquoise with hard shell case only $699!!!








Super clean, EZ playing Alvarez AJ60-12 with a solid Engelmann Spruce top, maple back & sides and did I mention it has great action?  Sweet deal at $229.











A pair of Art & Lutherie Folks fresh from the factory.  On the left is the Antiqueburst solid cedar top, on the right a Burgundy solid spruce top.  The smaller Folk size has become our most in demand size for good reason.  At $379 they are also a nice deal for a non-asian guitar.











VERY low mileage 2004 Ibanez SA160.  No wear and set-up with good, low action.  The price of $199 includes that Gator HSC.   













Nearly new Hamer Sunburst A/T with HSC for $229.  It has a set-neck, arched-top and plays great.















I rarely get excited by a $129 guitar but this Peavey Retro Fire is just so cool!!















I've been so pleased with Ventura acoustic guitars I decided to give their Ukes a try.  Just a bit more money than a basic/plain looking Uke they feature beautiful woods, nice action, better hardware, Aquila Strings and they sound great!  Pictured above is a Tenor in Flame Maple, a Zebrawood Soprano & a Spalted Maple Soprano. 

Ventura is a small, basically one man operation (like me) that does not sell to chain stores.  The owner insists on freedom of pricing (NO MAP) so I can not advertise the prices online.  I am happy to provide prices for Ventura instruments over the phone.......even better, come try one out, I am close to saying they make the best guitars and Ukes ever in their price range.













1935 Gibson-made, Wards-brand Carson J. Robison Tenor Guitar in excellent condition and intact mojo!  Newer Grover tuners and compensated saddle, just so you know.  She plays great sound great and looks beautiful.  $999 and you get to take her home.
















A beautiful Ampeg V4B from the late '70s.  One of the "top 5" bass amps ever!  100+ watts, all tube, handy switching, cover and tone up the wazoo.  Join the Ampeg club for $699.






















Choices are good, right?  Above is a SWR Goliath Jr II 2X10" & horn bass cab in good working oder putting out pleasing low end.  Priced at $229 it is even more pleasing.  Below that is an SWR Workingmans 4X10T bass cab which is equally pleasing at $299.





















Pretty sweet Ibanez SR500.  Bartolini Pick-ups, active tones and nice HSC all for $329.



















Yup, $89 can get you a perfectly good tube amp!  That would be this Kustom Defender 5H.
