Guitar is a 9 1/2 out of 10 with one hard to see clear finish scratch on top face of body, not easy to see in pics because it's not noticeable. Inlays are pearl white in person but photo Boneyard Yellow. That's a first we're ever seen. Guitar is breath taking, and when we viewed it in person, we just had to have it! Watch out, tone, looks, attitude and bite are infective.

Hey hey, we're the Monkees! That's right here's a RARE 1967 Gretsch #6123 Monkees Rock N Roll Model. So rare we called the largest Gretsch dealer in the world and they stated they only knew one customer with one, WOW! Everyone we know remembers the TV smash hit show The Monkees. They were the American Beatles and had hit after hit. This ALL ORIGINAL Gretsch example is wonderful. When I took it out of it's case I could even play it. It sent a spell into me and I had to put it back into its case. After a few days I was able to tune and test this baby out. As far as price, you can throw the price book out the window. A part of Rock-N-Roll History for sure. Comes complete with Original Gretsch Case. Call for price. Sorry, SOLD.
VERY RARE VINTAGE HOFNER 1960's ARCHTOP JAZZ GUITAR WOHSC. Here's a Made in Germany at least 50 year old jem. If Hofner made this guitar guitar today they would charge over $2000 for it today and even more as a vintage guitar. She's so cool with her raised fingerboard violin style neck. We think the body has a one piece maple top and back. Here's the bomb, it has a 3 position switch on body face. We were told the first position is passive, the second is active, and the third would turn signal so you can plug into a radio (at that time). Now only the 1 position works because we have no way to test the active stage. The electronics work fine but the bottoms do not change the sound. Only 1 volume knob working now. The battery compartment is at the rear strap button. It takes a European size cel which we do not have. Its has a sliding trap door, metal, with a hold down screw as shown in pics. This guitar sounds great in 1st position and also acoustic. The action is fine and the frets shown no wear. There is also still room on adjustable bridge to adjust string height higher or lower. The over all condition is excellent with only one small scrap on bottom side shown in pictures. The bindings are cracked but we cant find any that are loose. Some are also yellowed due to age. The Hofner sticker on face in perfect. There is no model or paper label in sound hole that we can find. On tail piece, in tiny print reads Made In Germany. The nut measures 1 5/8" and the string height is 1/8" at the 12th fret. NO ISSUES at all with this great guitar. ALL ORIGINAL and a playing rare museum piece of musical history for sure. Sold with original hardshell case.
D Angelico Excel New York EXP-1DP Transparent Wine Red Archtop- Here's a great jazz box that's in perfect mint condition. We acquired this baby from the original owner. She was special ordered in the end of 2012, in this beautiful finish, which is breath taking. Even the case is in excellent condition because she never left his house. D Angelico's are known for their great workmanship, playability, and tone. If you check around you will find plenty of blond natural Excels, but maybe not even one Transparent Wine Red one for sale. Check that floating pickup and wonder inlays. A dream come true for little coin. Any reflectios in pictures are only from glare on this shiny wonder. SOLD
Yes in deed, here's a very hard to find Gretsch 6022-12 Rancher. We think it is a 1992. We are selling it for the original owner that claims he bought it new in the late 90's. It was probably new old stock. We just set it up with D Addario 12's and she plays wonderfully. No issues that we can find and the condition is all original near mint. You'll have to look hard to see she's not dead mint. The pick guard has a light uneven edge in one spot very hard to see, (probably factory). The back has very slight button swirl in clear coat and also some VERY MINOR tiny scratches on back, (definitely not large enough to photo). No other wear or cosmetic we could find. She sounds, plays, and looks great. The inlays on the fingerboard are fantastic! Steer, cactus, a riffle, like wow. This guitar is not being produced and one hardly ever comes up for sale, so this is your chance to own a out of this world Gretsch.
Gibson Les Paul Standard 2006 Lemon Burst Flame- This baby is MINT, no imperfections, and shines like it just came from the factory. The color center yellow so slight turns to a muted amber. A nice flame sets this guitar in the spotlight. The guitar is completely original, with the exception of the Seymour Duncan Pups, which is a real nice addition. Back finish has no rash or any look of use. Neck is smooth and also new condition. She sounds great, feels great, and looks great! Comes with Original Gibson Hardshell Case and all Case Candy shown. SOLD
RARE CUSTOM 1992 OVATION MODEL 1689-2 ADAMAS PRESENTATION GUITAR WITH CASE. Yes this guitar is one of a kind. Guitar is in perfect 100% condition with no issues. We could not find one nick or scratch. As you can see by the inside label, this guitar was presented to Jim & Catherine Voorhees for years of dedication by owner of Ovation Charles Kamam II in 1992. This was hand written over printed label at that time. This guitar does not read Adamas on inside label, but it is the same type as the Adamas I on the Ovation website. This guitar model is really 1689-2 that is written on inside label. This is very close, if not better, than the Model 1687GT-2 that they list today MSRP $5,499.00 on the site. Anyway, guitar plays and sounds wonderful. Plugged into an amp she is full and brilliant. No issues or imperfections to report. A great guitar at a great price. The workmanship is out of this world. Headstock, body face, and binding is fabulous. Last picture shows paper label that is just laying on top of case. We received this paper when we acquired this great instrument. Original Hardshell case also in excellent condition.
RARE 1984 KARL SANDOVAL DOT FLYING V GUITAR RANDY RHOADS. Yes, here's the closest ever you will get to Randy Rhoads. Karl built guitars for Randy back in the day. As far as we cvan tell this is as original as the day it was made. This guitar is built like they use to build them back then. The condition is good, with regular surface wear and patina. The aging is only to finish. Guitar was examined and plays fantastic. Straight neck, nice action, Floyd Rose working wonderful for full effect, electronics fine, etc. Yes, this guitar is the real deal for sure. There is age yellowing here and there, chips, scratches, and finish checking surface cracks too. This is the real road worn. Everything you would like to see on a 1984 Flying V Machine. She comes in a real flight case with names taking off over "Fragile Handle With Care". This is not Randy's guitar, but close to it. Check out the inlay lighting bolts on fingerboard. Also view Sandoval's web and see the newer models. Buy this V and your buying history, a Vintage Quality V that was built when the music was music. Guitar has strap locks and case heavy anvil style flight case.
Gibson 1967 ES-335 TD- This guitar is all original, Exceptionally Gorgeous Pristine, and almost too good to be true. She boards sunburst finish, no over spray, with very little aging. All pots and 2 patent number pickups trace back to 67. No alterations, mods, and everything screams mint! This guitar performs as it should with flying colors. Comes with Original Gibson Hardshell Case near mint and original hang tag not filled out. MUSEUM QUALITY VERY RARE in this condition.
Rickenbacker 330- Really nice MINT CONDITION 330 Fire Glo. This baby is a 2005 time capsule. The woods and finish is a piece of art. The Rick style is like non other.

We have another super 330 in stock.
1964 Fender Mustang- What's not to like on a Vintage Mustang in Daphne Blue. One of the most sort after Fender Aged Colors ever. Yes, she shows a few chips and scratches, but it's All Original even the Fender Case. All Pots, Neck Ink Mark, etc all right. If we only knew back then, we would have bought a thousand Fender Student Guitars.
Gibson 1972 Les Paul Triumph Bass- Here's the real deal. This unique bass was produced from 1971-1979 by Gibson. It has a Natural Mahogany finish which has lightened with age. The two point bridge is an early Triumph feature; sometime in 1973 they got the three point bridge, but sales declined throughout the decade, never reaching the levels of 1972-73, so two-point bridge Triumphs are not particularly unusual. With regards other hardware, very little has changed from its predecessor, the Les Paul Bass. Still Les Paul Low Impedance Humbuckers and Schaller M4 Tuning Keys. The controls are a little different, as is the body size. It is lighter, and more comfortable to play. It's condition is excellent for it's age with no damages, repairs, or issues. It has slight rash on back of body. The sound is incredible with many ways to alter the sound. Way ahead of it's time, this Vintage Gibson is a legend. Comes with original Gibson Case, which is all there, but shows some wear.
Brian May 2004-05 Signature Series- Yes here's a mint Burns of London 2004-05 Brian May Signature Series. We don't really have to state what band he orchestrated do we?

1960-61 Gibson Maestro GA-78 RVT- This Kalamzoo Gibson takes the cake. Super Rare with original Jensen Speaker, this Stereo 30 Watt baby looks and sounds the part. Tube, Tube, Tube! We had our Tech give it a once over and replace the caps. He stated that this Amp was the Best Made Amp here ever had the privilege to work on. With Reverb and Tremolo the sounds are like Wow! Amp comes with original Foot Pedal and and in mint condition museum quality.

1960's Kay Model 703- Here's a blast from the past. This tiny Kay 703 was bought back in the 60's when music rocked, and there were bands playing in garages in your town. This tube survivor cranks a 6 inch factory speaker and probably had a Silvertone, Harmony, or Danelectro plugged into it years ago. Today everyone loves these time machines and Harmonica Players go nuts for them. Just serviced with new filter caps this baby screams cool.
Harmony H46 Stratotone Mars- Early 1960's H46 Stratotone Mars hollow body guitar. Very good condition for its age with issues. Slight wear to top edges of headstock only. Great tone with that Mojo Vintage Pick Up. This baby is 100% Original too. These guitars are just starting to become valuable and are sure to keep on rising.
Les Paul Custom- Here's a 1977 LP Custom in Sunburst. This guitar looks like it's a 50's or 60's LP but it's newer. She was packed away and left for many years. Her finish is relice on the body but she's a Custom Quality and sounds like it too. Real nice aging but not much wear at all. The best part is this baby doesn't cost even close to a vintage. This is a treasure waiting to be discovered.
Gibson 1960 Classic- Here's a MINT 1960 Classic Reissue. Bought by a collector and never played, this guitar is a dream. Hand picked for the best grain and packed away. Even the Warranty Card was never filled out. We all know why this guitar was reissued. Yes, because of everything about it and the demand for more of them. One minute in your hands and you will see just why. The color, yes the color is the so desirable Ice Tea Burst. As you can see, even the case is mint. Very hard to find another in this condition.
Yes, here's the one you don't see in excellent condition. The rare 1979 Fender Silver 25th Anniversary Stratocaster. This baby is near mint, with no scratches or dings anywhere.

Comes WOHSC shown in picture. No Fender collection is complete without one.
Rocket II- Lets get on this 1965 Harmony Rocket II. What a retro ride. Those 2 DeArmond Gold Foil Pickups do the trick. This guitar is also in great condition, all Original, and has that sexy Whammy Bar. Very hard to find in this condition.
Vintage Danelectro Convertible- Made from 1959 to 1969, this double cutaway guitar came with pickups and without too. Here's a wonderful example of an early acoustic version. This rare Dano is completely original with plugs just as it was sold back when. The front and back of body is Blonde Masonite with Dano's "mother of diving board" binding tape around body. Very interesting in deed. The bridge is adjustable with 3 screws. The tuners are so 1960's and scream cool. Headstock show plastic Danelectro Logo and even has the silver sticker showing serial number on the back of the headstock. Headstock is dolphin design, and not Coke Bottle design, which seems to be more rare. Guitar has a very unique sound just as the music did back then. A wonderful example of American Guitar History.

A Volume and Tone for each pickup with a Master Volume. Of course the Bigsby and that Ridge Body with Rubber Edge Binding. This Floor model is being discounted at a very low blow out price of $899.99 while only one in stock at that value. Here's some additional info.
