2016 Gibson Memphis ES-335 Limited Run “Late Sixties” series (1968-1969 replica) semi-hollow body electric with Gibson hard case. Made in the Memphis plant before production moved to Nashville. This guitar was only produced for one year. Plays and sounds incredible as you may expect.
Beautiful light burst finish as they were in the late ‘60s. Features VOS Memphis Historic Spec PAF Humbuckers, period-correct slimmer, narrower neck for great action and playability. Maple top and back, mahogany neck with dark rosewood fretboard with small block inlays. Chrome plated trapeze tailpiece.
This has been lightly played and has some small faint scratches on the finish and one blemish on top. All original electronics and hardware from factory with the Certificate of Authenticity. Includes a Gibson HSC in excellent condition. Made in Memphis, TN. Model number ES6916LBNT1, serial number 670082.
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.

Good condition and very playable 1965 cherry Gibson Melody Maker. Nice vintage piece that you can also use to show off on stage or in the garage! I am selling this for a collector who has dated this to 1965 based on the pots.
Double cutaway with one single coil pickup. The neck is straight, this plays and sounds great. Adjustable bridge and vibrato tailpiece (with trem arm, not pictured).
This had a neck repair at the headstock that was nicely repaired by a professional luthier. The neck is solid and this does not affect playability. Otherwise cosmetically this is in pretty good shape with nothing more than age-appropriate scratches and small dings. Serial number 504399

Vintage circa 1931-1933 Epiphone Zenith Masterbilt vintage sunburst archtop acoustic. This is tunable and playable up and down the neck with good action.
This model was originally produced between 1931 and 1969. Based on the dimensions of this 13 5/8” width at the lower bout, 10” at the upper bout), this is from 1931 to 1933 (the body gets larger in later years). One-piece spruce top, mahogany neck with maple center stripe, Indian rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. Mahogany headstock with engraved plastic veneer, 25.5" scale.
Nickel hardware, open-back plate-mounted tuners, adjustable rosewood bridge and base and trapeze tailpiece.
Cosmetically this is used, playable vintage, not a museum piece. This has been refinished at some point and has some finish cracks and a crack in the back of the headstock. It’s possible that there had been work done on this in the past, but I am not certain. For more info on this model: http://www.epiphonewiki.org/index/Zenith_Acoustic_Archtop.php

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.
