Fair condition, circa 1970s acoustic guitar. There is no brand on the headstock and missing the label in the soundhole, but the “Steel Reinforced Neck” sticker looks familiar.
This plays well and sounds better than it looks! The action is decent, but does rise up the neck. This has a new set of Ernie Ball strings.
This has all of the scrapes and scratches that you might expect from a ~ 50 year old guitar. Made in Taiwan.
Rare 1960's Hoyer vintage 12 string acoustic electric made in Germany with (I believe) the original hard case. This is similar to the Hoyer 12 string acoustic electric that Elvis used in his 1966 movie “Spinout”
This is easily playable up and down the neck. There is 1 volume and 1 tone knob. The volume knob does not change the volume (but is audible plugged in). The tone knob functions. Tuners appear to be rare Van Ghent tuners. This is easily tunable and sounds very nice even with new strings. The pickup is mounted under (and through) the end of the fretboard.
I had a luthier go through this and repair the bridge that had cracked and polished the Brazilian Rosewood fretboard. There are many areas of finish cracks (please see pics). The area around the soundhole looks hand-painted and is slightly warped and part of the pickguard broke off.
So generally fair, but playable condition. Not a museum piece, but rare, looks and sounds cool as hell and great vintage vibe.
Very good condition Ernie Ball/MusicMan EVH Style Copy Made by Jaymz. Just had this professionally gone through and setup, plays and sounds great.
4 x 2 headstock, maple fretboard. 2 humbuckers, 1 (volume or tone) knob, 3 way pickup selector switch. Tremolo bridge and a new set of DR Black Beauty strings.
The action is good and overall this is a fun, crunchy axe.
Got a couple of small chips and dings

Very good condition 1989 Ibanez EX360 FR MIK with HSC. This was just gone through by my luthier to tighten up the input jack and do a general once-over.

Very good condition Harmony H-80T Strat-style electric guitar in beautiful tobacco burst, likely made in Korea in the early 1980s.
Traditional Fender Strat features and tone – offset double cutaway body, 5 way pickup selector switch for 3 single coil pickups. The action is good and electronics function well. I filed down some fret overhang.
This guitar has survived very well throughout the years with just a ding on the upper top and very light, age-appropriate scratching
Fair condition Alvarez Model 5023 acoustic. Made in Japan circa 1970s. This has a huge, resonant sound!
This sounds very nice with new Martin Custom Light Phosphor Bronze strings (.11 to .52). This was a single-owner guitar that saw a lot of home use. This plays great for “cowboy chords”, but the action gets high up the fretboard as the top in front of the sound hole has sunken in a bit.
There is wear along the bass side of the fretboard along the area of the first 3 frets. The tuners work fine, but appear to be replacements. This has buckle rash on the back, several age-appropriate small dings and scratches and one crack in the binding. With original fair condition chipboard case

This has a clean warm Strat type sound from the 3 single coil pickups
Electronics work as they should, no issues. Tremolo bridge (no trem arm as of now)
Good condition Austin Super 6 Les Paul copy upgraded with a pair of Seymour Duncan humbuckers (unknown model)
This is a solid (8.34 lbs) LP copy that plays and sounds great with good action and fully functioning electronics. Well-appointed with LP features – 2 volume and 2 tone top hat style controls, 3 way pickup selector switch, adjustable bridge and Stopbar tailpiece. The Seymour Duncans rip has they should!
This has some light scratches and scuffs, but overall in good shape.

Fair condition Regent vintage 335-style semi-hollow electric. This was made in Japan circa mid-1960s. Regent was the Canadian brand name for Guyatone guitars made in Japan.
Great mix of both clean and crunch tone options with 2 humbuckers, a Bigsby-style tremolo, “roller” saddles. 21 frets, block inlays. Gold Grover tuners were added. 3-way pickup selector switch on the top cutaway and another switch on the bottom (rhythm/off/solo). 1 volume and 1 tone knob.
The previous musician owner had a push/pull coil tap option added to the volume pot and also wax potted the pickups. There is a slight bow to the neck, the action is decent.
Cosmetically this has plenty of character in the form of scratches, scrapes, dings etc….which adds up to a cool as hell vintage semi-hollow, but not a museum piece.

Very good condition custom Warmoth Telecaster with Warmoth body and 22 fret neck. This is approximately 10 years old and was custom built for a recording/touring Boston-area musician to capture his unique blues/rock tone.
This guitar has a Fralin steel pole bridge pickup and a custom Brandon Wound wide range humbucker with magnetic poles in the neck. Tones range from classic clean ‘60’s to thick and meaty, plus the ability to get crunchy depending on your amp and/or pedals
The action is very good, this plays easily up and down the neck. Controls for volume, volume and tone with a 3-way pickup selector switch. The frets are in good shape. Cosmetically this has been gigged and has some small scratches and dings.

Fair condition, playable and nice sounding Yamaha FG-401 dreadnought acoustic guitar
This is a solidly-built Yamaha acoustic with a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides. It has not been well-cared for by the previous owner and has several dings on the back of the neck, significant pick scratching, a finish crack behind the bridge and finish fading in the back. This is missing a strap button (trying to find one).
This sounds very nice with a new set of Ernie Ball strings and is fine for “cowboy chords” but working to lower the higher action up the neck. Made in Taiwan circa 1990s.
Very good condition and generally sweet 1984 Ibanez Roadstar II RS1300TR, made in Japan.
The RS1300 is part of the Roadstar II series, considered the top of the Ibanez line in 1984, featuring an arched birdseye maple top with binding on a basswood body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. This is the RS1300TR, for "Transparent Red."
Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups mounted in gold pickup rings, a Pro Rock'r double locking tremolo bridge with a locking nut, knurled Tek Grip control knobs and Smooth Tuner II tuning machines. Includes original tremolo bar, and original Ibanez hard shell case. There are a couple of small dings and some light scratching. This was adult-owned and well-cared for.
Austin Les Paul Copy w/Seymour Duncans - $250
Hondo Stagemaster 70 solid body electric (I have also heard this described as a “solid body acoustic electric”). This has a simulated soundhole – hollowed out only as seen, the rest of the body is solid. Pretty rare, these were made in Japan in the early 1980s in pretty small quantities. This is similar to the Gibson Chet Atkins SST.
This originally had a piezo pickup, but it was replaced with this Harmony single coil pickup. This has a clean sound that can produce some crunch as well. It is a little bit noisy, but not bad. This plays well with good action. 1 volume and 1 tone control. Acoustic-style bridge pins.
Cosmetically this is in fair condition, lots of scuffs and scratches, particularly in back. Some missing material around the volume and tone pots. Definitely a unique, functional and playable piece!
Good condition Madeira by Guild A-4 acoustic. 14/20 frets. Well-made Martin-copy likely made in Korea in the early-mid 1980s.
I think this is either an 00 or 000-size with approximate lengths: Scale: 25”, total length: 39.5”, upper bout: 11”, lower bout 14 5/8”. Looks like a solid spruce top with mahogany laminate back and sides.
The action is decent and playable, but it does get a bit high up the neck. Cosmetically has some age-appropriate scratching and small dings.
Good condition Yamaha FGX-412C-12, 12 string cutaway acoustic electric circa 1998 – 2001.
The built-in electronics feature a 3-band linear EQ with Midrange Frequency (AMF) control. Along with the volume control a separate mute switch is also incorporated to complete the pickup system (piezo undersaddle pickup). The action gets a bit high up the neck. The truss rod nut turns easily, but this would probably benefit from a pro set up including new strings.
This was adult-owned and very lightly used. Cosmetically no significant scratching, dings or dents. Could use a new set of strings. Made in Taiwan
Harmony H-80T Vintage Electric - $125
Pretty rare and super cool looking Blackjack 1960s viola style Electric MIJ, probably in the Matsumoku factory for Teisco, Guyatone or Aria.
3 color sunburst, tremolo tailpiece (no trem arm). 2 pickups, ~ 25” scale, 1 volume and 1 tone knob. Plays generally well with low action and new strings. This looks like it used to have a pickguard, but not currently.
There are several finish cracks that look cosmetic and the volume and tone pots are scratchy. Otherwise, this is playable. Includes original fair condition chipboard case.
