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.

Very good condition and generally sweet Seagull Entourage Rustic CW QIT acoustic electric guitar.  Single cutaway, made in Canada by Godin, this is another high quality Godin instrument.

Select pressure-tested solid cedar top, wild cherry back and sides, silverleaf maple neck and rosewood fingerboard and neck with rustic burst custom polished finish.  QI pickup with controls for volume, treble, mid, bass and tuner.  This plays and sounds great as you would expect.

HSS pickup configuration, 3 way selector switch.  New Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings .09 - .42.  The neck is straight, this plays well and sounds very crunchy, suitable for rock or metal.

Cosmetically this is a little banged up with a pretty good ding on the front top, some sticker residue I a trying to get off and is missing the 2 back plates (which basically completes the garage band/pawn shop look!)

Dean Z Series Chicago Standard w/HSC - $325

"The Jackson is such an upgrade!" - Jake P.

Mach 1 Studio Series vintage electric - $95

Austin AU786 Les Paul Copy - $175

Good condition Mach 1 Studio Series fairly rare ¾ scale vintage electric guitar.  I am thinking this is circa late 60’s or early ‘70s, made in Japan or Korea by Hondo, but I’m really not sure.

This is playable up the length of the neck.  The electronics function, although the tone knob is sticky, I am working on that.  2 single coil pickups with an adjustable tune-o-matic style bridge and clamshell tailpiece.  The fingerboard is maple, but looks like the factory wanted to paint it black.

Cosmetically has age-appropriate scratches and small dings.  Overall cool vintage piece that can deliver single coil tones or get pretty crunchy depending on your setup.  Includes a padded 3/4 sized gig bag.

D’Angelico Excel EXL-1 Hollow Body Electric -$850

Ibanez RG3EXFM1 Upgraded Pickups - $215

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)

Good condition Fender DG-60 dreadnought acoustic guitar

This is solid intermediate or beginner guitar.  The neck is straight, and the action is low, so this is nicely playable.

Cosmetically this has some light scratching and a few scuff marks, but no major dings.  Made in Indonesia.

“It's great to work with professionals who know their stuff, their business model takes the pain out of shopping for the right gear. I look forward to working with you on my next purchase." - Dan C.

Harmony USA H6390 ‘70s acoustic - $175

​Oozing vintage vibe, good condition 1981 Ibanez Blazer made in Japan.  The Blazer Series was produced by Ibanez from 1980-1982 and then again from 1997-1998.

Candy apple red strat-style body, with real road worn maple neck, HSS pickup configuration, 5 position pickup selector switch, a coil split switch and phase switch.  Solid brass tremolo system, this is a very solid, well-made guitar, like they did back in the day!  This plays well with nice low action.

I am looking for a back plate, a black replacement one would look great.  Cosmetically this has age-appropriate wear.  S/N J812371



Very good condition Dean Z Series Chicago Standard Explorer-style with Dean hard case.  Sweet looking natural finish and high end appointments!

Mahogany top and body.  Looks like one original DiMarzio Super Distortion humbucker in the bridge and an unknown brand humbucker in the neck.  Set neck, Grover tuners, gold hardware and Tune-o-Matic string-through bridge.  3-way switch with individual Volume controls and a single Master Tone.

Frets are in good shape, this plays and sounds great!  Comes with Dean form-fitting hard shell case.  Made in Korea, S/N US13050336.



1959/'60 Silvertone Model 1417 Dolphin Nose -$675

Very good condition Ibanez SGT122 Sage Series 12-string natural dreadnought acoustic

Spruce top, mahogany back and sides, rosewood fretboard and bridge.  The action is good, this plays very well and sounds great.

Cosmetically this has some buckle rash in the back and some minor scratching from normal use. Made in Indonesia

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.

Samick Greg Bennett Interceptor - $85

1959 Gretsch 6125 Hollow Body Electric - $1,825

I saw this and had to grab it as it’s one of the more cool, unique axes I have seen in a while.

The action is good, neck is straight and this is very playable with tons of character.

Guitars

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.  The only playability issue is some of the open strings are buzzy.

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.

Ibanez SGT122 12-string acoustic - $135

Good condition Danelectro U-1 '56 reissue 6 string electric, these were produced in 1998 and 1999.

Ibanez Blazer 1981 Vintage MIJ - $350

​Gorgeous and very mint-y 2015 D'Angelico Excel Series EXL-1 hollow body electric Guitar with D’Angelico hard case.

This is a re-issue of John D’Angelico’s legendary Excel single cutaway with all the quality expected from D'Angelico. True to the original in every detail, the EXL-1 features a USA-made Seymour Duncan Johnny Smith pickguard-mounted Floating Mini-Humbucker to maximize the acoustic tone of its commanding 17-inch-wide, 3-inch-deep body. Art Deco-inspired details frame the EXL-1—with a scroll-style neck bevel, mother-of-pearl inlays on an ebony bridge, and split-block inlays on a pau ferro fingerboard.  Flamed maple sides and back with gold Grover tuners.

Got this from an adult owner who purchased it and basically never used it.  S/N US15080585, made in Korea​


Very good condition (especially considering its age) Simpsons-Sears Model number 26132 vintage electric made in Japan.  Simpsons apparently is what Sears used to be called in in Canada.  Pretty sure this is from the 1970s and probably made by Silvertone.

This has a (surprisingly for 70’s MIJs) nice straight, playable neck, fully functioning electronics and a cool Bigsby-style tremolo arm.  2 pickups with slider controls for volume for each pickup and tone.  1 of the volume sliders is currently scratchy.

Cosmetically this has a couple of age-appropriate small chips and scratches.

Excellent condition Ibanez RG3EXFM1 with black quilt top and some sort of upgraded pickups (pair of white humbuckers, not sure what) but sound great!

Shark tooth inlays, fixed bridge, 24 jumbo frets with a rosewood fingerboard on maple neck, Basswood body.

Plays and sounds great!  Made in Indonesia.  S/N I090904752

Art & Lutherie Wild Cherry Acoustic - $235

Silvertone Artist Vintage Lap Steel orig. case - $350

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

Very good condition Epiphone 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.

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.



Seagull Entourage Rustic acoustic electric - $295

Applause by Kaman USA vintage acoustic - $110

Good condition Jackson JS Series Dinky Minion JS1X.  Get giant sound in a small package at a steal! Featuring a 2/3-scale (22.5”), the JS Series Dinky Minion JS1X is ideal for little shredders or grownup road warriors who need an easy-traveling instrument jam-packed with the features they love.

Cosmetically this has some light scratching and some discoloration from previous stickers.

Good condition and pretty crankin’ Austin AU786 Les Paul copy, I am told made in Korea.  I just sold one to a friend who was very happy with the bang for the buck from this brand, so I got another!

I believe this is one of the earlier Austin LP copies made and this delivers a nice high gain tone with the pair of humbuckers.  Has the Gibson/Epiphone appointments including the Tune-o-matic-style bridge with adjustable saddles and Stopbar tailpiece, 2 volume and 2 tone knobs with 3 way pickup selector switch (missing the cap at the moment). 

The neck is straight, the action is nice and low and frets are in good shape.  Cosmetically this has some visible scratches and dings, would say fair condition on the cosmetics.
