"Nearly New" Mesa Boogie Rectifier Mini 25 with gig bag and footswitch.....very handy and portable.  $829 and she's yours.

2010 Marshall Class 5 Combo in good working order.....$299.


Now accepting offers on both Mike Endicott Bass Banjos.....Acoustic & Electric.


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 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!




Ear Candy Buzz Bomb 2x12" with Eminence Swamp Thang & CV75 speakers.  Extra deep cab for plenty of low end and very nice cabinetry.  In like new condition for $299.



Alvarez Silver Princess Vega Tubaphone clone made in Japan in the 1970s.  Original, clean and nicely done!  With it's OHSC the price is $499.

"Good as New" made in Korea Epiphone Ultra II in Ebony with gold hardware.  This is the one with a Shadow Nano-Mag pick-up in the fingerboard.  It has been upgraded with a roller bridge and comes with its OHSC for $379.


And, the latest from Seagull, the Coastline Momentum A/E HG.  Solid spruce top, Adirondack spruce bracing, Fishman electronics and a high gloss finish all around.  Basically a more traditional looking acou/elec for a mere $499.














The latest Art & Lutherie Guitars now in stock

All featuring a vintage vibe with beautiful new colors, Sta-tite style aged tuners and mother of pearl pickguards.  Same old Godin quality and solid tops all around as well as built-in pickups with preamp and tuner (Legacy & Americana models). 


Roadhouse E/A Parlor size with Fishman Pick-up System...$479.

Legacy Q1T OOO size acou/elec...$499.

Americana Q1T dreadnaughts with electronics...$499.










One of the classic Tube Overdrives from the 1980s....a Tube works Real Tube....you can't go wrong for $99.


Very low mileage 2015 Fender American Special Telecaster in Lake Placid Blue!  Texas Special pick-ups, 3 brass saddles and ready for anything.  With original Fender Gig Bag the price is $759.









Looking to Step-Up to a "Better" Bass?  Try this used Godin Freeway 4 P/J.  assembled in Hew Hampshire from parts made in Canada.....it is a winner for $299 with a hard shell case.



Hand made 5 string banjo.  Made by Mike Endicott and his friend Jeff Wager, it has a birdseye maple pot, ebony fingerboard and a truss rod.  They just finished it last week and it came out very nicely.  We figure $750 is a sweet price.



A never-played (!!!) 2003 Fender American Standard Strat in 2-tone sunburst.  The original HSC is gone but I have a nice Ritter bag for it.....a mere $529 for both.



Fenders' entry in the low power guitar tube amp category....the 7 watt Bassbreaker 007.  It has (1) EL84 & (2) 12AX7s, a Celestion Ten 30 10" speaker and not too many knobs.....and a transferable warranty....all for $299.




Used to see these regularly, I guess everyone is hanging onto theirs!  A Gallien-Krueger MB150S Bass Amp.  May be the best in it's size & weight class.  A bit dinged around the edges but working just fine for $299.


YES!!!  I got a few Seagull Merlins.  The spruce top and mahogany top models.  They are diatonic instruments like a dulcimer so no bad notes!  They are very nicely made in Canada and could be the next "Ukulele"!  I decided you'd want something to put it in so I'm selling them for $149 with the official Seagull Gig Bag.






The "better" made in Korea Epiphone Les Paul in classic sunburst.  A 2004 model in VG+++ condition and a hard shell case all for $299.


A real made in USA 1990s Fender Blues DeVille Model PR-247 4X10" all tube guitar amp.  Price of $659 includes orignal footswitch & cover & casters.










2006 Gibson Flying V Custom Shop in Metallic Black with red multi binding!!  Very low mileage, one owner and in near mint condition.  Has DiMarzio Super Distortions installed and comes with original EMG pick-ups & pots.....as well as Certificate of Authenticity and the usual paperwork.....all for $2500.


Clean, 1970s, Ross Stereo Delay in good working order.  One of the classics for $199.

That's the Gordon Carlisle mural.  I asked Gordon for something bright and, ya know, with a guitar in it.
