2013 Danocaster Double Cut STRAT!  OMG this is a full rich sounding one!  DO you want a fat sounding guitar?….tired of strats that sound like an acoustic with an EVH pickup in it?  THIS is your one!

Maybe it’s the FULL STEEL BLOCK trem that this has from the factory?

Maybe the Kerry Learned PIckups…WOW….boy they clean up nicely when the volume is turned down.

Maybe it’s the Soft-V Neck that bubbles in your hands?

Maybe it’s the fact that this has been played and is broken in but remains clean enough for us to carry (we only carry clean gear!)

1957 Gibson Les Paul Junior in TV Yellow finish. YES the finish is original and it blacklights.  Original FRETS.  Original Pickup.  Original Wiring.  Original Guard.  CHANGED TUNERS.   Upgraded CALTON hard form fit case.

Tonally this has that FATNESS and Crunch til you back off the volume (pot a touch scratchy and you won’t want to mess with it but if you do that’s on you).  This is from MY personal collection.  It sits amongst the very few top sounding guitars I’ve accumulated.  I just find that I don’t play many guitars anymore and it’s time for this one to reside with someone who will use it.

Color is strong.  Checking, dings and some scratches but a clean piece that is just under that grade where you won’t want to touch it.

2005 GVCG Esquire / Tele : 6lb-13oz

Early GVCG Esquire from the days when Jonathan was creating these with Fender logos!  IT has the trademark “rooster” in the neck pocket clearly identifying this piece as a GVCG.

This was professionally converted to a Telecaster…but relaaaaaxxxxx….no holes were drilled……the original guard & caps are included!  So YOU WIN!  I prefer having 2 pickups but if you only want one then it’s all there for you.

SEE COMPLETE SPECS & CONDITION in the 3rd PICTURE.

LIGHT weight at just 6lb-13oz.  Have to LOVE the resonance of this piece.  The early GVCGs are the play.  I had the ‘reissue 1’ versions and they are fine guitars but not to the same level of WOW as the early versions.

SEE COMPLETE SPECS & CONDITION in the 3rd PICTURE.

This does NOT come with the ‘patch’ but it is a 2005 from what I can gather.

2018 Wysocki CUSTOM Tele LP – LOOK AT THE WOODS!

YES ANOTHER!

We sold this new less than a year ago.   Save $2500 vs. New on a guitar that lived in a smoke free, gig-free environment.

Think about it…would you buy an acoustic guitar made from crap wood?  Why do you think the top end acoustics command so much money?…the woods combined with the craftsmanship.  Well, let’s start with the WOODS….there is ONE person on the planet who is THE wood guy supplying the world’s top luthiers with coveted planks….Larry Wysocki.  For over 50-years he is THE guy the top builds go to.  He searches the world for air dried woods, recovered woods, exotic woods.  He collects them and has a coveted stash that is sadly running low.

A few times a year, Larry builds instruments.  Usually for celebs, but on occasion he is nice enough to sell me a brand new one.  THIS is such a piece.  Oh and it just vibrates like nothing we have had.  The pickups are custom voiced TOM DOYLE HUMBUCKERS that are open and alllow the woods to impart their organic warmth and natural sustain.

Speaking of woods…how about 1-piece 5A AIR DRIED Flame Maple Top from the early 1900s on top of a 1-piece AIR DRIED 60 Year Old Swamp Ash Body!.  Oh, and a 5A 1-Piece Air Dried Maple Neck from the early 1900s.  OH and the board…Brazilian Rosewood of course but not some stump wood…this is 80-year old Brazilian from the stash.  You just can’t find woods like this anymore.

You can see the complete Spec & Condition Sheet in the 3rd Picture.

A couple other quick points before you bang out a question to me:

  • 7lb-03oz
  • Custom TOM DOYLE Pickups!
  • 12″ Radius
  • C Profile .85″ – .967″ Neck
  • 1-11/16″ Nut

Lentz Jr (that is Scott Jr for those who don’t follow the lingo) LEGENDARY VENUES SERIES “Jimi” Stratocaster!   From a smoke free environment.  Just 6lb-11oz!

I’ve said this before and will repeat it….Lentz guitars are THE STANDARD for modern boutique instruments.  When you’re ready to step past cookie cutter…LENTZ is the name to trust.  You can turn over a LOT of rocks, kiss a LOT of frogs, like a LOT of INstagram pics…..order and spec out and ponder and question….at the end of the rainbow ….a LENTZ.  Take if from someone who has owned more boutique unique than most people.

Knaggs PRE-PRODUCTION Choptank SERIAL #1

Pre-Production KNAGGS Serial #1 Choptank!  This is as collectible as it gets.  When Knaggs Guitars was getting off the ground they went to a few good PRS customers and offered their Serial #1 quietly.  The monies were used to fund the startup of the company.

NECK is 1-piece of African BLACKWOOD!  You simply can’t find a guitar with these specs today.  And think about what went into the build and care of each specimen.

THIS is probably the HOTTEST of the bunch.  MINT Collector Owned since day one.  Original purchase price in 2010 was $10k firm (no discounts) and it has been stored in a smoke free environment since.  This has not been around the block.  Think of what a PRS Serial #1 is worth.  You can get this for less than the price of a stamped out PRS Private Stock.    You can see the Specs in the Certificate of Authenticity.

Yes it comes with the hardshell case. No mods.  Conspiracy theorists look elsewhere.

Gil Yaron 2013 Singlecut : WOW Balance of tonal frequencies!

Oh and the love of LP Style Guitars….so often the photograph oh so well only to be tonal compromises in your hand.  Like the childhood fable….some are too bassy….some are too thin…almost impossible to find one that’s JUUUUSSSTTTTT RIGHT…especially before it evaporates.   THIS YARON is just such a bowl of porridge.   Beautiful warmth from the woods and master build level.   Abundant and present Midrange that works incredibly well with every variety of amp (and modeler) without overpowering those frequencies.   A bottom end that somehow has both snap and fullness without being tubby.  High end that blooms and remains full without making you cringe.

EVERY Yaron sounds VERY different.  I scour the world looking for cool guitars with the sole purpose of matching you to the one of your dreams.  Notice how we describe the tone of our guitars FIRST.  We don’t ask you what you want in a guitar then toss out variations of what you want to hear.  We also never go with the old ‘it sounds like a buuuuuurrrrrssssttttttttt mannnnnnnnn”.

Check out the specs and condition sheet for all the details.  We welcome thoughful trade offers and move a lot of guitars because we are easy to work with…..dummies?…no…we probably won’t fall for the 12U pickoff moves….but we will entertain fair trades and offer values typically in excess of what other dealers will.

LOVE CABLE : LTD CUSTOM – Brand New!  Only US Auth Dlr

LOVE CABLE : LTD CUSTOM – Brand New! Only US Auth Dlr

PrimeGuitars is PROUD to be the EXCLUSIVE NORTH AMERICAN Dealer for LOVE Cables LTD CUSTOM line!   These hand made guitar cables are created 1-at-a-time by a Master Sound Engineer with decades of experience at Lipinski Sound (their monitors are amongst the best in the world).   I am a cable JUNKIE……have and have tried everything up to the $1000 Analysis purple….I can tell you THESE are what I use.  Why?   They are transparent and musical without being boomy (some cables have TOO MUCH low end).  They are not thin and weak sounding.  VERY transparent yet musical.

Think about it, you spend tens of thousands on your gear…then you get some crap cable OR spend like $40 on a ‘great’ one.  Think of this…in an audio system or recording studio the cabling is expensive and for a reason.

Read the review below from an actual audio listener who purchased a pair of custom LOVE LTD Cables for his home audio system….(we can custom order you these too if you email us).  The buyer heard them at an audio conference and was so blown away he ditched his higher priced cables.

REVIEW OF THE LOVE LTD Audio Cables:
  • Cable is not a ‘fussy’ cable, and has good engineering, marketing
  • Overall excellent noise rejection (I have a system with a component that has poor EMI/ RFI tolerance and with a propensity for microphonic noise this product did not bring out the issue)
  • Cable is very flexible and not fragile or petite, no special treatment no issues.  Drop dead silent backgrounds- almost spooky quiet
  • The background noise of a recording (tape hiss, radio white noise, recorded HVAC noise, venue background noise) was almost inaudible even when I knew it was there. This feature resulted in a relaxed non-edgy presentation. my metal dome tweeters which can cut class with a bad recording.
  • Transients- the first of the cables defining characteristics was its outstanding transient speed and inner detail, macro and micro transient information was superb. The inner detail was always organic not etched. This is an unusual quality, as I really got to appreciate what a lot of artists I have been listening to for decades had done from an inner detail perspective. This was evident on identifying the difference between high quality recordings with good recording techniques to the vast ocean of lesser recordings. This cable allowed the identification of the musicians techniques (fingering of guitar strings, plucking of violin, pedal use on piano, skin sound of drums, which type of stick is the drummer using, which brand of cymbal, baby/ grand/ standup piano), absolutely a musicians cable yet not analytical in nature
  • Spatial reproduction- the second defining characteristic of the cable was its lack of ability to develop a 3D image. The width and depth of the recordings stage were always the same and this did not vary with the recording used or where the Love Cable was used in the system. This prevented the illusion of a musician in the room or on a stage with me at the venue. This annoyed the heck out of me as I always was aware I was listening to a Hi-Fi as the cables caused a deviation from the recorded material. The “focal point” or “sweet spot” in my listening room was very small with Love Cable so there was only one ‘best’ seating position rather than the entire couch.
  • Overall a pretty balanced tone, BUT let there be no mistake there was a slight deviation from neutrality… the BASS was the star of the show (I found myself purposely favoring bass/ drum or percussion heavy music). The bass was epic, concussive, ALWAYS UNDER COMPLETE CONTROL, detailed, accurate, and addictive.  I, and my neighbors, got to explore a lot of loud music from my collection. It was like a drug, easily the most accurate bass/ percussion I have heard in my system. The rest of the mid and HF were very good as well but the lower octaves were the favorite child in this family.
  • The cable is not completely neutral it always had a slight identifiable ‘flavor’ (identified in 4a, c, d). My analogy to its deviation from neutrality is ‘James Bond’. All kinds of things happened to Daniel Craig or Roger Moore in those movies but they always looked clean and pressed in their suit before and after car accidents, bombings, fires, and fights. And that was kind of what Love Cables did they told the story but always with a happier ending then there should have been.
  • I liked this cable a lot and tried it between every component and am now using it in my stereos tonal problematic point (between the CD player and the Preamp). If it wasn’t for items 4a and 4c above it would have been between the preamp and power amp but that position requires complete neutrality.
  • Overall the timbre was very good to exceptional.  I will not use the term ‘musical’ as that is typically a euphemism for a pleasing tonal deviation from neutrality, they were tonally accurate to the recording but maybe a little ‘dry’ (but not clinical) missing some hall reverberation.
  • Good value for the money, need to spend ~ $2000 for a more neutral cable (Kimber, Tara, Wireworld Platinum)

1987 PRS Custom 24 – High Grade “Player’s Condition”

1987 PRS Custom 24 that is a true high grade “Player’s Grade”.  NO breaks just honest wear and changes to enhance the tone & playability.   Priced to move for someone that wants a piece that is ready to enjoy without fear.

SEE COMPLETE SPECS & CONDITION IN 3rd PICTURE for details like weight, case, etc!

First off, you can see in the pictures that there is wear on the guitar throughout; however the frets are fine with no grooves.   It’s a classic 10′ guitar that looks great from a small distance (we used to call women 9-irons cuz they looked great from 110 yards out).

Second, the pickups have been upgraded to Railhammers…YEAH a HUGE upgrade from the pencil thin tone of the originals…NO the originals are gone and I don’t know where they are (why do people ask…do they think I am penpals with them?).  The wiring has also been modified.

You play this piece and you will thank the owner who modded it.  The owner was a hugely talented local player who is highly regarded as one of the midatlantic’s best.

2018 Gibson Custom Shop MURPHY Aged & Painted ’59 LP – Wildwood Ltd Ed

Can you say WOW.  This Murhpy Aged & Painted ’59 has the IT baby.  I have 2 in stock so I can compare.  This has that springy lush 3D snappy clean on pushed tone.  This is the type of tonal quality that I look for when designating a piece as a ‘top 10 percenter”.    NOT dark.  NOT mush.  NOT farty bottom.  NOT thin and empty.  It just plays perfectly with every one of the amps in our library from the ’73 Marshall 20w to the Bogner Uber to the ’66 Deluxe Reverb to the ’57 Bassman.  It is what I like to call the “Universal Donor” of guitars because it doesn’t just go well with one amp.

SEE COMPLETE SPECS & CONDITION IN THE 3rd PICTURE:  That includes:

  • WEIGHT
  • CONDITION
  • SPECS
  • YES IT HAS THE ORIG AGED BROWN ‘WILDWOOD SPEC EMBLEM CASE’
  • YES IT HAS THE CASE CANDY & CERT
  • YES IT HAS THE CONTROL COVERS WITH LOGO (IN CASE)
  • NO IT HAS NO REPAIRS
  • NO IT DOES NOT SMELL LIKE SMOKE
  • ONE OWNER

I remember years ago reading that Jimmy Page would go into music stores and try a zillion guitars….each through a zillion amps…THEN he would find a magical match and purchase the pair.  It always stuck with me….and since then I’ve searched for guitars that are Universal Donors….THIS is such a piece…..Jimmy…where are you!?

1956 Gibson LP Special :  Fresh GORD MILLER Refin

1956 Gibson LP Special : Fresh GORD MILLER Refin

If you are like me you look for value in the marketplace.  For my money, player grade vintage is a great investment as long as you KNOW what you are getting AND the piece is priced for the known flaws.  THIS is such a piece.  Consider the following:

1956 Gibson Les Paul Special.  Here are the details:

  • NO HEADSTOCK BREAK or REPAIRS!
  • 2017 Refin in Aged TV Yellow Nitro (old previous refin was cherry and in some areas you can see it has come through.
  • Refin done by GORD MILLER who is highly regarded in vintage Gibson restoration.
  • Refret by Mark Kane (North Carolina)
  • ORIGINAL PICKUPS
  • Hardware & Plastic are Montreux (replaced during refin)
  • 6lb-14oz
  • Reissue Tuners
  • Recent LP Style Pink Lined Hard Case
  • Only ‘unexplained’ area is shown near neck pocket. Seems like something is up under the finish in one rectangular shaped spot.

Simple..  You get the old wood and old pickups.  Nitro finish and fresh playable frets.  Save thousands and enjoy the piece.  We acquired this from the owner who had the work done.  This hasn’t floated around.

Sold “AS IS” so ask your questions now.  If you are going to nitpick every aspect of this then offer me $12 and want overnight shipping then perhaps you like not being responded to…LOL.
