    Here's a gently used 2019 Duesenberg 49er in near mint condition. Terrific guitar, original hardshell case. See below. Slim, comfortable neck carve. And yes, the band-aids are still in the case : ) This guitar impressed the heck out of me. Set neck, carved top and the combination of the P90 and the humbucker is a total winner, especially in the middle position. The feel and playability is second to none. Pure rock and roll. As Duesenberg says: "The 49er guitar has been built to take center stage with some of the great guitars from the early fifties.  The goal was to build a guitar that would meet Duesenberg’s already high expectations and yet feel right at home in the hands of our legendary friends. The combination of engineering and wood selection along with our Duesenberg pick-ups has allowed the new 49er to join the other unrivaled guitars found in the Duesenberg line.  With an arched top and the fine lines that the 49er delivers, you can see why Duesenberg’s 49er has already landed in the hands of guitar heroes." Impeccable build, high-quality case, and even a set of Duesenberg band-aids because you will, in fact, play until your fingers bleed. Condition: Near-mint; Body: Maple top, mahogany body; Color: Black with cream bindings; Pickups: Duesenberg humbucker and P-90; Scale: 25.6; List price: $3100
  • Here is a 2009 Fender Custom Shop 56 Strat, NOS, in nice condition. Nicely figured ash body with a sunburst, nitro finish and a handsome parchment pickguard that offsets the burst. There is some lacquer checking on the back of the guitar; the top is very clean. One finish chip on the fretboard at the 2nd fret treble side but does not affect playability. The guitar has Vintage frets on it, so if you like smaller, faster frets as opposed to the jumbo 6105s found on most Custom Shop Strats, you will like this guitar. Not much information on the build sheet from Fender, but Strats of this era typically had a soft V neck, and this one is comfortable and on the slimmer side. Nice and light at 7 1/4 pounds. Fretboard gauge indicates it is a 9.5 radius. Includes tweed hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity. Condition: Used, excellent; Body: Ash; Neck: Maple, 9.5 radius; Nut: 1.650; Color: Two-color sunburst; Pickups:  Custom Shop 50s Strat; Scale: 25.5; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

    Here's a near-mint 2019 Collings OM1 T Julian Lage signature model, hide glue, ebony bridge and fingerboard, bone saddle, relic Waverly tunes with vintage oval buttons. Upgraded with an adirondack top and sunburst. I'll let Collings describe it: "When Bill Collings first met the brilliant young jazz musician Julian Lage, in 2014, the two began a series of in-depth conversations about their respective crafts. Lage's profound insights as a guitarist would play a key role in the creation of Collings’ T (Traditional) Series guitars. This rare collaboration, which continued right up until Bill’s passing, in July, 2017, has yielded another exceptional new guitar with an old soul. We are proud to present a highly personal extension of the T Series: the Julian Lage Signature OM1. Though Lage’s guitar shares the same foundational specs as the OM1 T, it is unique in some key ways. Its neck feels like no other Collings guitar. That’s because it’s modeled after Lage’s cherished 1939 Martin 000-18. This pre-war gem is heard on the guitarist’s 2015 solo album, “World’s Fair,” and was his main touring acoustic for years. The 000-18’s neck—which was of course originally hand-shaped and sanded—has a distinctive taper altered by decades of wear. For Lage, this particular neck had come to feel like home. Through careful analysis and digitization of its unique dimensions, we were able to precisely recreate its worn-in, asymmetric feel on his signature model. We extended the fretboard from the original short scale to our standard 25 ½" length for slightly greater presence and note definition.
    Lage has an affinity both tonally and aesthetically for vintage guitars whose finishes have mellowed after years of playing. To recreate this effect we initially considered a varnish, but to achieve the ideal combination of a thin finish application and a vintage aesthetic, we landed on a custom satin lacquer. This new finish offering not only feels and looks right to Lage, he finds it has the same inherent openness of tone that is present in the best pre-war instruments. With his typical descriptive eloquence, Lage characterizes his signature model as a “lovingly neutral” guitar. It has a remarkably even response between registers. It’s not an empty flatterer, but an instrument that rewards you when you’re playing your best. In this way, Lage, whose own education is unending, sees the guitar as a teacher. Lage’s signature model incorporates a script peghead logo not seen on a new Collings instrument in decades. This is the inlay that Bill hand-cut some 30 years ago when he started out in a tiny shop in Austin, Texas. We see this as a loving tribute to our late leader, who in his final project was able to realize the perfect new steel-string for one of today’s most exacting guitarists."
    Serial # 29697 Condition: Near-mint; Top: Adirondack spruce, sunburst; Back and sides: Honduran mahogany; Neck: Mahogany, custom carve, ebony fingerboard; Nut: 1 11/16; Width: 15; Depth: 4 1/8; Scale: 25 1/2; Binding: Ivoroid with herringbone; Rosette: b/w/b; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)
  • Collings' latest offering is a Traditional update on their terrific slope-shouldered CJ series. Very impressive guitar with some nice touches, including a gold mother of pearl Collings logo, a stout full C neck carve and typical Collings attention to detail. I'll let them describe it: "As with all of our Traditional Series guitars, when it came time to add a “T” designation to our slope-shoulder offerings, we didn’t simply tweak the original; the all-new Collings CJ-45 T is a fully re-imagined instrument that offers a distinct tonal variation when compared to our CJ and CJ-35 models. Strongly vintage-inspired, the body construction has been completely re-engineered, including new bracing carves and patterns. When combined with our latest T-Series neck design and new CJ-45 neck profile, the result showcases a tone that is exceptionally dry and fundamental with the growl and thump sought after in the great slope-shoulder dreads of the Wartime era."
    Bracing: Behind the scenes but foundational to an acoustic guitar’s tone is its bracing. While the CJ-45 T shares the same body shape as our other CJ models, its top and back Wartime X-bracing is entirely different in layout, profile, and carve, resulting in a dry and direct fundamental with quick decay that significantly expands the line’s tonal range. Traditional Series Finish: As with every Collings Traditional instrument, the all-nitrocellulose finish on the CJ-45 T is ultra-thin, providing an unmatched response and resonance when paired with its lightweight T-Series build and materials. Flat Back Design: The CJ-45 T incorporates an exceptionally flat back design compared to other Collings flat tops, a feature which enhances the instrument’s direct, forward tone, pronounced midrange, and strongly vintage-inspired voice. Neck Profile: With its full C-shape, the new neck profile on our CJ-45 T is substantial in terms of both feel and its contributions to tone and response while also benefiting from the adjustable flat bar design and construction techniques of our most recent Traditional Series necks. Rosewood Fingerboard: Hand-selected for tonal warmth and vintage vibe, every CJ-45 T features an Indian rosewood fingerboard with elegantly tapered mother-of-pearl long dot inlays. Rosette: Unique to the CJ-45 T are its fully exposed rosette and shortened, 19-fret fingerboard, an aesthetic which makes it instantly recognizable among the Collings lineup.
    Serial # 31730 Condition: New; Top: Sitka spruce; Back and sides: Honduran mahogany; Neck: Mahogany, Full C profile, rosewood fingerboard; Nut: 1 3/4; Width: 16; Depth: 4 7/8; Scale: 24 7/8; Binding: Ivoroid; Rosette: b/w/b; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)
  • Big headstock, big tone ... this new Custom Shop offering harkens back to the last of the best vintage Strats. And the charcoal frost metallic finish is something you just don't see every day. Fender says: The 1970 Strat® marks the end of an era. It was the last year of the four-bolt neck joint, original factory synchronized tremolo with stamped saddles, and heel-adjust truss rod. Body contours changed dramatically in 1971, clad in much thicker polyurethane finishes. Indeed, 1970 was the last year the Strat held true to its purest original design elements. To honor this benchmark model, we’re introducing a faithful recreation with several custom modifications that players and aficionados will appreciate. The two-piece select alder body of the 1970 Stratocaster® Journeyman Relic® has a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish. Its two-piece rift-sawn maple neck has a 1969 “U” profile, walnut “skunk stripe” and a lacquer-face large ’70s-style headstock with a darker aged appearance. The rosewood fingerboard has a comfortable modern 9.5” radius and 21 narrow tall frets. A three-ply nitro pickguard holds three hand-wound ’69 Strat pickups (reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup) and a Vintage Modified #2 control assembly with Greasebucket™ tone circuit, which keeps mids and highs without adding bass when rolling back the tone control. Other features include vintage style “F” tuning machines, five-way switch and vintage-style Custom Shop synchronized tremolo. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity. Condition: New, light relic; Body: Alder; Neck: riftsawn maple, 69 U profile, 9.5 radius; Nut: 1.650; Color: Aged charcoal frost metallic; Pickups: handwound 69 Custom Shop; Scale: 25.5; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)
  • Here's a nice 55 ash-bodied Tele in a light "journeyman" relic finish, with handwound 55/56 pickups, Fat 50s wiring and a 54 U carve. Great tone on this one. Fender says: The 1955 Telecaster, also known as the “white guard” Tele® is an all-time classic with features including a single-ply white pickguard, smooth barrel steel bridge saddles, staggered bridge pickup pole pieces and a chunky neck profile. In this faithful recreation, the Fender Custom Shop has captured the tone, playability, look and feel of this archetypal model. The two-piece select ash body wears a checked nitrocellulose lacquer finish, and the tinted one-piece rift-sawn maple neck features a chunky ’54 “U” profile, topped by a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 narrow tall frets. Period-correct hand-wound ’55/’56 pickups are paired with a three-way switch and Fat ’50s Tele wiring for strong tone with transparent bloom. Other features include a single-ply parchment pickguard, ’55 Tele bridge with smooth barrel steel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and disk string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity. Condition: New, light relic; Body: Ash; Neck: one-piece riftsawn maple, 54 U profile, 9.5 radius; Nut: 1.650; Color: Faded aged copper; Pickups: handwound 55/56 Custom Shop Tele; Scale: 25.5; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)

    2021 R9

    Here’s a gorgeous Gibson Custom Shop R9 1959 Les Paul with made-to-measure hand picked highly figured top and finished in Mojave Burst VOS. No pickguard installed. The guitar has Custom Bucker Alnico III unpotted pickups, an Authentic 59 medium 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. Get some extra savings because the switch tip broke loose during shipping and put 2 tiny dents in the top next to the switch (not through the finish). These can likely be fixed with some care and a drop or two of lacquer. There is also one small scratch on the back by the pickup selector plate that occurred when a new switch was installed.  Photo in which the lighting actually over-emphasizes the dents (the selector surround "poker chip" was also replaced due to a small dent in that): Gibson sez: “Gibson Custom Shop’s 1959 Les Paul Standard is not just a tribute to those priceless original models — it’s a clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail. It represents the culmination of decades of work by Custom Shop’s expert team — a tireless quest to bring accuracy and authenticity to the hands of fans.” Condition: VOS; Body: Mahogany; Color: Mojave Burst VOS; Pickups: Custom Buckers; Scale: 24.75

    Here's a reliced Forrest Custom Guitars B-Bender, built by Forrest Lee Jr. himself, of course, at his shop in Tennessee. The guitar features a swamp ash body, a reliced and aged white blonde nitro finish, maple neck, Forrest Custom 3/2 boost coil (by Callahan) pickup in the neck and a Callahan 50s bridge pickup. Hardshell case. The main feature, of course, is Forrest's B-Bender. If you're not familiar with the B-Bender, it allows you to bend the B string up as much as a full step by pulling down on the neck of the guitar when you are using a strap. This lets you mix in some pedal steel type licks. The guitar solos on the Eagles' "Peaceful Easy Feeling" and the Grateful Dead's "Box of Rain" both feature Teles with B-Benders. Very cool guitar. Here's a video demo of a Forrest guitar:

  • One of the earliest versions of Fender’s custom work was the guitar that became known as the “Mary Kaye”. Combining a White Blonde finish with gold hardware, this guitar was featured in several ads and eventually became one of the most-desired Stratocaster models. The Vintage Custom ’57 Strat is your chance to enjoy this elegant-looking guitar that looks, sounds and feels like it’s straight from the ‘50s. The one-piece ash body sports an immaculate NOS flash coat lacquer finish that lets the wood breathe with more sustain, while wearing in a distinctly personal way. The tinted riftsawn maple sports a “ ’57 V” profile, while the maple fingerboard’s vintage-style 7.25”-9.5” compound radius is ideal for playing chords or single-note lines.

  • Here’s a brand new WL-12 with Collings' new aged finish option. The aged top incorporates some subtle checking to the finish, but no nicks or scratches you might associate with other reliced guitars. I love these maple Waterloos. The WL-12 is a new variation on the flagship WL-14 that brings together the elements of maple back and sides, vintage x-bracing, and 12-fret construction to create an entirely new Waterloo experience. By joining the neck to the body at the 12th fret, the bridge is positioned closer to the center of the lower bout, producing a rich and open tone with stronger low end response than you would typically expect from a parlor-sized guitar. Maple back and sides make for the perfect tonal compliment to the body design, adding focus, projection, and a pronounced front-end attack that is sure to inspire players of nearly any acoustic genre. As a standard, all WL-12 models feature a moderate oval-shaped neck profile with a fully adjustable truss rod, drop-in saddle, and a vintage “iced tea” sunburst finish. This is still a large neck compared to most guitars but not uncomfortable. Hardshell case included. Waterloos are made at the Collings facility in Austin, TX — “Waterloo” was the name of the village which eventually grew into Austin. With warranty and hardshell case. Condition: New; Top: Solid spruce; Back and sides: Figured maple; Neck: Mahogany, oval neck; Nut: 1 3/4; Width: 14 3/4; Depth: 4 1/4; Scale: 24 7/8 Binding: Ivoroid; Rosette: Ivoroid; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)
