"Paul answered my call on the 2nd ring at 7:00 pm. I called to make inquiry about a guitar set up, as I was leaving for vacation 2 days later and wanted to have this done prior. Paul met me that night and took my guitar, he set it up the next morning and I picked it up that afternoon. He has……very big service standards. I will call on him again for future service. – Mike D."

Excellent condition 1979 Gibson ES-175D hollowbody archtop single cutaway electric made in USA.
With a fully hollow body and sharp Florentine cutaway, the Gibson ES-175 stands out as an all-time iconic jazz guitar. Known as the workhorse of jazz guitar, the Gibson ES-175 is an iconic hollow body electric guitar loved by many legendary guitarists in the worlds of jazz, blues, rock, and fusion. The Gibson ES-175 has a recognizable sound that has been imitated by many guitar makers but seldom duplicated.
Any further description I try to give this won’t do it justice, except to say that this was owned and very lightly played by an adult collector. Includes original Gibson locking hardshell case.
Good condition and nice sounding vintage Silvertone 1333 Tube Combo Amp circa 1954 to 1957. Made by Danelectro for Sears/Silvertone, this is a very cool looking amp with tan/tweed top and bottom of cab, black alligator side trim and large thread wheat/gold grille.
1 x 12” speaker, 2 instrument inputs and 1 microphone input, each with volume control and functional. 1 tone control plus controls for tremolo depth and speed. 5 tubes with rectifier.
IMO this delivers a rich, warm sound at practice amp-level volumes. A tremolo push switch would be needed to activate the tremolo (not included). The Cosmetically this is in good shape with just some age-appropriate wear on the corners and sides.
Excellent condition Eastwood “Morris The Cosey” Lefty Mandolin-Style semi-hollow electric, this is Eastwood's take on the 1975 Morris mandolin style guitar, made famous by Miles Davis sideman, Pete Cosey.
Set maple neck, maple top, mahogany back and sides in a beautiful sunburst finish with a single f-hole. Rosewood fretboard with block markers, two Hofner style staple pickups, tune-o-matic bridge with stop tail all adds up to a nice, rich tone.
Owned by a collector and very lightly played, this looks, plays and sounds great. The neck is straight, no discernable fret wear.
"Met with Paul today. Great guy and awesome to work with. He worked with me with the purchase and was understanding of my needs. Hope to work with him again." - Michelle C
"Great guy to deal with. Polite and very knowledgeable. Great prices.. and he delivers!!! Bought two guitars in 2 weeks and looking at a third!" - Benny L.

Silvertone 1960s Tenor 4-string Acoustic- $300
Good condition, rare vintage Sano Model A-3 tube amp, circa early 1950’s. Founded in New Jersey in 1951, Sano originally made amps for electric accordions and then for guitars. This looks to be one of their earlier amps.
Great vintage tone with 1 x 15” speaker, 3 inputs each with a volume control (“mixer”) plus controls for master volume, bass and treble. This is suitable for guitar, bass and vocals.
Tubes: (3) 6C4 single triode pre-amp tubes, possibly a 6AX4. For preamp tubes in the control panel – a 6SL7 and a 6SN7. (2) 5881 power tubes and a 5U4 rectifier. This was recently professionally serviced by my amp tech who replaced the supply filter capacitors, replaced the 2-prong cord and cleaned and checked all connections and functions. Otherwise this looks all-original.
Cosmetically in very good shape for a ~ 50 year old amp! Includes what looks to be the original cover.

Good condition 1952 Gibson BR-6 lap steel with a P90 pickup and original case. This screams vintage vibe, plays and sounds great!
Gibson made this model between 1947 and 1960. It features a guitar-shaped mahogany body and round neck. 1 volume and 1 tone knob each functioning as they should. 2 of the tuners are partially broken, but fully functional.
The electronics are fully functional, this sounds great plugged in. Includes case which I am told is original.

Good condition and vintage ‘60’s folk vibe Silvertone tenor 4-string acoustic guitar, possibly the Model 661. Probably manufactured by Kay circa 1964 or 1965, Silvertone made tenor acoustics for 2 years in response to the popularity of folk music in the early ’60s

This currently has nylon strings on it, 19 frets on a rosewood fretboard. ~ 23” scale length, 39” total length, dreadnought style body. The bridge is stable on the top. There is a very thin surface crack behind the bridge.
Cosmetically there are some areas of discoloration on the bottom and age-appropriate scratches and nicks. There is an ink stamp inside: L 8974.
