Very unique, good condition Galveston Strat copy electric HH in gold sparkle. Star fretboard markers complete the look that will turn heads!
Offset double-cut Strat-copy body, 4 bolt neck, 2 humbuckers with 3-way pickup selector switch, 1 control knob for volume and 2 for tone. The action is low, this plays nice and delivers plenty of crunch. Includes a trem arm on a working trem bridge.
Cosmetically there is a chip on the top end of the headstock, some gunk on the pickups I am working to remove, also added a replacement backplate that fits pretty well, not perfect, and finish cracks on the back near the bolts. S/N IS113941.

Good condition and nicely playable Goya by Martin Model G410 12 string acoustic guitar. (Goya was purchased by Martin in 1976). These models were primarily produced in the ‘70s and ‘80s into the early ‘90s.
This is easily playable with good action up and down the neck and has a new set of strings.
Cosmetically this has a few small dings and some scratching from normal use. Made in Korea.
Vintage and very well maintained two-tone 1959 Gretsch 6125 Single Anniversary hollow-body electric with (non-original) Gretsch hard shell case. The original two-tone smoke green finish in very good condition. It has the classic Patent Applied For ("PAF") Filter'Tron humbucker.
To the best of my knowledge, this is 100% original with the exception of the nut and one thumbprint inlay on the 3rd fret, recently replaced. I had the neck professionally reset, the frets leveled and set up by at the Music Techs in Manchester, NH. It plays very smoothly and sounds great plugged in or unplugged. The finish is not perfect, but there are no major dings, dents or deep scratches.

1969 Epiphone FT-30 Caballero acoustic - $275
Excellent condition Epiphone by Gibson SG Special electric guitar
2 humbucker pickups with 3-way pickup selector switch, 1 volume and 1 tone knob. This one was adult-owned, plays well with nice action, and sounds as it should.
Cosmetically no significant dents or scratches
Fair-to-poor condition, but playable 1969 Epiphone (I believe this is the FT-30 Caballero) made by Gibson USA acoustic. I am selling this as-is.
The neck is pretty straight, this is easily playable and sounds quite nice. The main issue is that the neck has been sanded down to the truss rod, then covered with wood putty. It is stable but has been thinned down. There is some separation between the bridge and the body.
Serial number: 533784 (Production year: 1969, Made by Epiphone (Gibson) in Kalamazoo, USA per this site: https://www.guitarinsite.nl/serienummers-epiphone_eng.php)

Encore 1960’s hollowbody for parts or repair - $160
Silvertone Artist Vintage Lap Steel w/orig. case - $325
1959 Gretsch 6125 Hollow Body Electric - $1,825
As-is for parts or repair, circa 1960’s Encore Gibson ES-335-style thinline hollowbody electric. I believe these were made at the Matsumoku (Teisco) factory in Japan.
This is missing the nut, bridge and a piece of the tailpiece that would connect to the bridge and a trem arm. I don’t know if the electronics work.
All that said, this looks cool as hell!
Good condition circa 1949-1951 Kalamazoo Vintage Lap Steel with original case and attached ¼” cable. These were produced by Gibson in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
This is in generally good and playable condition with wear that would be expected from an instrument of this age.
The ¼” cable connection is temperamental and requires a shake here and there for connectivity
Jackson JS32 Warrior - $150

Rosewood fretboard with maple neck, classic Coke bottle headstock, 1 lipstick pickup and concentric volume/tone knob. This can go from clean to fairly crunchy depending on your setup.
This is in overall good condition and nicely playable with good action. Made in Korea.
Danelectro U-1 '56 reissue electric - $250
Good-to-fair condition, vintage Applause by Kaman model AA-31 big bowl acoustic made in USA between 1976 and 1981.
Laminate top with mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard. The action is decent, not perfect, but fully playable up the neck

“Bought a Peavey VTM-120 amp-head from Paul. Fantastic condition, fresh tubes with service paperwork and contact info for his personal tech. Great price. Very cordial, honest, great to deal with. Ideal situation all around. Highly recommend.” - Will H.
Good condition Silvertone Model 1417 bronze finish dolphin nose electric. Danelectro-built with a single Dano lipstick pickup. This model (with the side-mounted jack) was in production from late 1959 to 1960 (top-mounted model was 1415 from ’61-’62). Brazilian Rosewood fretboard, solid center body, Dano adjustable bridge, tone and volume controls and a tone switch.
From Silvertoneworld.net, “The 'Dolphin Nose' 14XX series was the end of the 6-string 'U' series of guitars offered by Sears. They carried on the standard of the 'lipstick' pickup, the classic cutaway look of the body, and features you couldn't see like the dual neck truss rods, internal shielding for the electronics, and (as the catalog put it) 'core of hardwood balanced by hollow wing sections,' all topped off by the famous 'modern headpiece.' These guitars finished what the 1375/77 started in 1954 and disappeared with the advent of the 1448/49/57 line in late 1962.”
This is very playable and the electronics work fine. The action is good and playable up the entire fretboard. Cosmetically there is a chip on the front behind the bridge and age-appropriate wear, particularly on the back of the neck.
Ibanez Artcore AF-75 hollow body electric - $225
Fair, but playable condition Hofner Model 448 small-bodied acoustic guitar from the late 1960s. This model was produced for less than three years from 1968 to 1970 with a 14½" lower bout body width, as opposed to the usual 16" on the other Hofner acoustics. It was also unique in having an adjustable steel bridge screwed down directly onto the body top
I had my guitar tech go through this. This is playable, but has issues including the laminate is cracked in many places and there are small dings on the body. The truss rod is not functional (the truss rod nut only spins). The action is pretty good, playable, but gets a bit high up the neck. There is 1 replacement tuner and a loose piece in the bridge. Made in Germany, S/N 55089

Goya by Martin vintage 12 string acoustic - $195
Very good condition Ibanez Artcore AF75-TRS-12-05 hollow body electric with RoadRunner gig bag.
The Ibanez Artcore AF75 Electric Guitar has a fully bound, all-maple hollow body that provides tight resonance without feedback. The Ibanez AF75 is a true full-hollowbody guitar (no soundblock), perfect for that muted jazz tone and fully flexible for everything from alt rock to punk. Mahogany set neck with bound rosewood fretboard and pearl block inlay is a delight to the digits. ACH1 humbucker at the neck and ACH2 at the bridge provide a beefy, quiet signal with pronounced mids. Cosmetically this is in good shape with just some light scratching and very minor dings from normal use.
"Very kind, polite, went very well, would do another transaction any day, thank you, Paul." - Steven C.
Good condition and playable vintage circa 1930’s Oahu round neck lap slide guitar with original case. Made by the Oahu Publishing Company in Cleveland, OH, they were big into student instruments in the 1930s.
Parlor-sized guitar with sunburst finish and age appropriate wear, this is fully playable as an acoustic slide guitar. The raised nut on this makes this a slide guitar, but not playable as a normal acoustic guitar. 24” scale and 13” at the widest point. Comes with what I am told is the original case (looks very old school)
“Amazing Service, great Prices, Friendly People, and the coolest guitars and amps!
I rate this business 11/10, 6 stars (out of 5), and 110% satisfied with my new guitar! Highly recommend doing business with them." - Tristan A.
Very good condition and generally sweet Ibanez SA Series (I think this is the SA 160) with an upgraded DiMarzio Tone Zone humbucker pickup in the bridge along with 2 single coils.
This plays great with good action, and the upgraded DiMarzio helps provide an even greater rip to the tone! 5 way selector switch, 22 jumbo frets in very good condition. This was adult owned and didn’t leave the basement.
Made in Korea. S/N W940921.
As-is for parts or repair, Kramer Striker 300-ST.
Missing Floyd Rose bridge and knobs. I don’t know if the electronics work. 22 fret rosewood fretboard, HSS pickup configuration
Has a USA neckplate, but I am pretty sure these were made in Korea 1984 to 1989.
Good condition circa 1959 to mid-1960’s Silvertone Artist lap steel in gray pearloid with original case
This has 3 original tuners and 3 non original tuners (of which 2 are missing the knob). There is a scratch on the pickup cover
Otherwise, best I can tell this twings and twangs like it should! S/N X70886
Jackson JS22 Dinky Electric - $150
Very good condition vintage (~ mid ‘70s) Harmony Model H6390 acoustic with case, made in the USA. This is from the final days of Harmony's American production
The neck is quite straight, and the action is very good. This is playable up the length of the neck. This has a nice, rich sound.
Cosmetically this is in very good condition with no significant scratches or dings. The small corner of the pickguard near the high E string is coming up a bit. Comes with a good condition chipboard case.
