Ever dive-bombed with your guitar?  Thought it might be too expensive to own a guitar with a Floyd Rose?  Wonder no more!  This Peavey Predator EXP Plus has a Floyd and dive-bombs just fine.....and it's a mere $129.





Check out Yamahas re-do of a Les Paul.  It is called AES 720, has DiMarzio pick-ups, a set neck, contoured body, locking Grover tuners and strings thru body.  This one is in near perfect condition and comes with an SKB hard shell case for $299!







That would be a Cordoba GK10 Studio in immaculate condition.  It is the Gipsy King model with Fishman Presys Blend electronics and original gig bag for $499. 










More Ventura Dreadnaught acoustics just in.  These are the basic starter models but still play and sound fine and have good quality hardware.  Been selling Venturas for about a year now with no problems!!












Brand new Squier Bullet Strats now available.  Completely set-up (by me) so they are playing and sounding just right.  With a gig bag for $169.













Fender Rumble 15 Bass Amp.  We like them quite a lot especially when they are $69.














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.  More Spalted Maple & Zebrawood moels on the way.

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.













Made in USA, all solid wood (cedar & rosewood) guitar with Fishman electronics that plays & sounds great for $299?  It's a long story but yes this Tacoma DR8C is the one!















Just like Jeffs!.  A 2007 Fender Jeff Back Strat with Suhr Pick-ups.  The price of $1299 includes OHSC and a fair amount of case candy.



















A couple of perfectly good $99 guitars......Yamaha FG JR and Hohner HC-06 classical.....gig bags included as usual.



















One owner, low mileage 1990 Martin D12-2832 Shenandoah 12 string with pick-up & HSC for $899.  Made in Nazareth from parts made in Japan, it has a solid spruce top & laminate rosewood back and sides.


















Marshall Valvestate 40V Model 8040......made in the UK, tube preamp, 12" Celestion, reverb and only $99!!















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.
