• Here's a 2011 Collings 360 carved top offset with a gorgeous quilted maple top. The guitar is in excellent condition aside from a couple of chips on the edges of the top and light playwear you would expect on a 12 year old instrument. Great tone from the Lollar mini humbuckers, and some very nice upgrades on the original build, including parallelogram inlays, a flamed maple neck, TonePros bridge and tailpiece and, of course, that quilted top. With original hardshell case. Collings sez:
    "With an offset body style and Lollar mini humbucker pickups, the 360 is one of the most unique models in our electric line. Bridging the gap between our 290 and CL models, the 360 features a carved top and a slim front-to-back body thickness. This combined with the offset body contours make the 360 light and comfortable to play and give it a quick responding and resonant tonal character. The figured maple option allows us to offer some of our most vibrant finishes without the ivoroid binding present on other models."
    Serial #10135 Condition: Very good (see description); Body: Mahogany; Neck: Medium-fat C, rosewood fingerboard, 12 radius; Color: Caramel; Pickups: Lollar mini humbuckers; Scale: 24 7/8

  • Here’s a Gibson Custom Shop R8 1958 Les Paul plain top finished in a washed cherry VOS. The guitar has Custom Bucker Alnico III unpotted pickups, fat 58 C neck carve, hide glue fit top and fingerboard, CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers, paper-in-oil capacitors and historic Lifton style case with all case candy, certificate of authenticity booklet. Great guitar. Just under 8 3/4 pounds of Historic tone. Gibson sez: “The 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue features all the painstaking historic construction methods of the famous '59 Reissues with a few historically-accurate spec differences that allow it to stand on its own. Like the 1958 originals, it has narrow frets which help more of the fingerboard wood to be heard in the tone profile. It also has a round, chunky neck profile for a full feel and maximum bending leverage. And finally it has a beautiful plain maple top; each is unique and full of character.” Condition: VOS; Body: Mahogany; Color: Washed cherry VOS; Pickups: Custom Buckers; Scale: 24.75

    Santa Cruz
    2015 Style 1

    $4,495.00
    Here's a gently used Santa Cruz Style 1. Based on the original Size 1 Martin guitar, the Santa Cruz Style 1 is a deep-bodied 0-sized guitar, a 12-fretter, harkening back to the days when a parlor sized guitar was the norm. This guitar is so small and comfortable to play, but has a surprisingly big voice, and it immediately says “vintage” to my ears. Very traditional sound, equally at home fingerpicked or strummed. Perfect for blues or old-timey music. What a sweet guitar. Very nice condition. With Santa Cruz’s fine Ameritage case. Condition: Excellent; Top: Sitka spruce; Back and sides: East Indian rosewood; Neck: Mahogany, ebony fretboard, ivoroid binding, V with volute; Nut: 1 3/4; Width: 13 1/8; Depth: 4 1/2; Scale: 24.75; Binding: Ivoroid; Purfling: Herringbone; Rosette: b/w/b; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

  • In the fall of 1951, the Fender Telecaster was born. Inspired by new technology sweeping the nation, television “telecasts” were the wave of the future and, as history has proven most powerfully, Leo Fender’s new Telecaster was also part of that wave. It was and remains to this day one of the most played, most iconic and most revered instruments in popular music. The Custom Shop presents an homage to the original Telecaster model that had such a dramatic effect on music and the electric guitar world. The Limited Edition 1951 Telecaster features a two-piece select ash body, a one-piece AA flame quartersawn maple neck with a 10/’56 “V” profile, and a 7.25”-9.5” vintage compound-radius fingerboard with 21 narrow tall (6105) frets for perfect feel and playability. The hand-wound ’50-’51 Blackguard pickups are connected to ’51 modified “Nocaster®” wiring (similar to the original, with blender pot and brighter rhythm setting in the neck position). Other features include a black phenolic pickguard, ’51-’54 Tele bridge with brass saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and disk string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

  • Here is a very rare left-handed  Collings 12-string single 02H ... what a brilliant idea Bill Collings had to make a 12-string version of one of the most comfortable couch guitars on the planet. Surprising volume and outstanding playability and all the jangle you can handle.
    Collings says: "Combining the timeless appearance and enduringly popular tone of the "0" body style with a 12-string configuration has resulted in this unique new model. With a sound that belies its small size, the 0 12-String has exceptional note separation with a quick attack and beautiful harmonic complexity. The smaller body dimension and short 24 7/8" scale also imparts a percussive quality to the note attack that makes this an exceptional finger style and recording guitar. With a sound and feel all its own, the 0 12-string brings something new to this classic design."

  • Here's a beautiful Rick Turner Guitars Renaissance RS6 steel string electric acoustic. I ordered this one with a 1 3/4 nut. The guitar has some nicely figured mahogany back and sides, terrific top, mahogany neck and an ipe (Brazilian walnut) fingerboard. The back of the headstock is signed by the legendary Rick Turner himself. If you play acoustic guitar live, you're familiar with the challenges of getting a natural acoustic tone amplified to stage volumes without being plagued by feedback. All the mics, preamps and EQs in the world are rarely up to dealing with a loud monitor pointing at your soundhole. The thinline RS6 is built like an acoustic but has a mahogany center block to resist feedback. A Turner Timberline bridge pickup feeds a full-spectrum signal to an 18-volt D-TAR preamp with graduated volume and tone controls. The preamp runs off two AA batteries, easily accessible via the back panel. I have tested this at loud monitor volumes and it works great straight into the board. Lindsey Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac) loves his Turner guitars and plays a Renaissance live. These guitars also sound great through a conventional guitar amp. With locking tuners, Access padded case and Timberline electronics. Condition: New; Top: Mahogany; Back and sides: Mahogany; Neck: Mahogany with ipe (brazilian walnut) fingerboard; Nut: 1 3/4; Scale: 25.5; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

  • I've been waiting to try this guitar, and was not disappointed ... a great gigging acoustic, and a lot of fun to play with the various acoustic tones it offers plus a pure electric tone (and blendable, to boot). Lay down some pure acoustic backing on a looper and then turn on the electric pickup with your favorite amp simulation pedal and rock out. And just enough volume not plugged into an amp to practice quietly in the dead of night. Fender sez: A shape-shifting acoustic-electric with a revolutionary Fender and Fishman-designed Acoustic Engine. The American Acoustasonic Telecaster embodies the spirit of purposeful innovation on which Fender was built.

  • This left handed Carter-Poulsen G-Model is a stunning guitar with superb tone. Hand built in Santa Cruz by Willie Carter and Eric Poulsen, this guitar features beautiful east Indian rosewood with a terrific bearclaw sitka spruce top. The dark rosewood is set off elegantly and subtly with red pernambuco binding and sycamore purfling, which imparts beautiful sparkling golden detail lines. The rosette is sycamore, as well. The shape is Carter-Poulsen’s take on a 14-fret 00 size, but with an innovative horizontal tone bar that transverses the lateral bracing. The guitar has great bass response, a pleasing midrange and crisp, clear trebles. Very comfortable neck and a short 24.9 scale. Remarkable guitar for recording. Carter-Poulsen guitars are gaining a strong following both domestically and internationally, and one strum will tell you why. Both Willie and Eric have their roots in the Santa Cruz Guitar Company.  With a custom Ameritage Carter-Poulsen hardshell case.
      Condition: New; Top: Bearclaw sitka spruce; Back and sides: East Indian rosewood; Neck: Mahogany; Nut: 1 3/4; Width: 15; Depth: 4.25; Scale: 24.9; Binding: Rosewood; Purfling: Sycamore; Rosette: Sycamore; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course); Price: $5995
