Glendale Tele w Roasted Maple Neck

Best value in a Sub-$2k Telecaster?….Glendale.  Think about it, most people say hardware plays a HUGE role in the tone of a guitar…and GLENDALE Tele Bridges are considered to be the cream of the crop.  Look at teh locking bridge saddles on this one…and the Aluminum E/A bridge is all the rage amongst tele players because it gives you that clarity and snap in the bottow 2 wound strings while retaining that smooth brass tone for the other 4.  I use this setup on my own tele. Read up and see the pros do too.

This guitar is clean and from a smoke free environment. It comes with its original hardshell thermometer case.  The neck is .918″-.945″ and it just VIBRATES.  It is ROASTED MAPLE.  Check out the CORVETTE RED finish.

See all the Specs and a Detailed Condition in the 3rd picture.  We scour the world so that you don’t have to.  You can buy from us and rest assured that the item you receive will be as described….thousands of reviews over decades….or you can take your chances on Joe Random…who will stick you with some dinged up ‘great shape’ guitar then load you up with excuses….you decide….

James Tyler USA Studio Elite HD

James Tyler USA (don’t you hate when guys just say James Tyler then like 1232 paragraphs down you learn it’s a Japanese el cheapo version…).   From the early days of 2004 when James found cool pickups everywhere and used them.  This one features Suhr LP single coils from the factory….the USA factory…yeah…and a Laundau Secret from the factory….so let me be clear….it is STOCK…LOL…but we know you will still have to email and ask ‘ahhhhhhhh…ahhhhhh. I know you said stock but can you call james at 6pm on Sunday and ask him if he remembers this guitar and if the pickups are stock”.  Well the customer is always right…until they aren’t…so we refuse….LOL.

See all the Specs & detailed condition in the 3rd picture where we provide MORE information than the factory and unlike our competition we actually provide detailed information on condition….but alas you will ask “what brand of battery is in the compartment for the midcoast”…or “can you take a measurement of the battery” or “can you photograph the battery”.    Can you tell we have had a complete assclown week around here.  Don’t add to it…or we will use you in our next promo.

2017 Frank HARTUNG Embrace Custom – Near Mint

2017 Frank Hartung “Embrace Custom”.  Hand crafted by a master luthier.  If this were new it would be thousands more.  Condition on this is super clean “mint -” with Original Hard Case & Certificate of Authenticity.  It  is a one-owner piece from a nonsmoking environment.   This is just LOADED with custom hand crafted features such as a Matching Flame MAPLE Headstock overlay, Maple pickup ringsm, Maple Neck Binding and Madagascar Rosewood Board.

The finish is a super thin nitro that isn’t sticky to the touch.  The weight is a WOW 7lb-5oz.  How many times have you lusted after a guitar only to find out it was a 9+ pounder….not here.  You can see ALL the specs & detailed condition in the 3rd PICTURE.  

Tonally this one has CLEAR ringing notes.  My test is thumping the Low E string…if it remains tight & the neck vibrates then the guitar has promise.  I read this years ago in a Guitar Player article…works nearly every time.  If you try the test on most LPs they are dead…and the low E farts out.  This guitar is super clear and musical especially in the low end.   It won’t overpower your amp’s bass side.  The notes form chords.  The notes are even from fret to fret and string to string.  The pickups are clear and not compressed sounding.  A bargain of a piece priced where you would find a bolt on scrap-wood production guitar.   Which do you want….please make the right call….please…..

Tom Anderson T Classic Contoured

OMG Teles are HOT in the marketplace and THIS is SO additive to any Tele lover’s collection.  First off, the color is super cool.  In some lights it seems sort of solid and dark….put it in other lights and you get that vintage mustang cherry candle apple thing going on…you want to take a bite out of it because it looks edible.  And you won’t mind because this instrument is SUPER clean (SEE THE 3rd PICTURE FOR A SPEC/CONDITION SHEET).

The pickups are THE perfect match between single and humbucker.  They don’t hum like a single but they are not dark and overpowering of low powered amps like many hums.  The 5-way switch (with KICKBACK SWITCH) REALLY HELPS you dial in unique tones from this monster.

The weight is a perfect 7lbs.  The Neck is a great Even Taper C .86″ – .935″.  Swamp Ash Body.  1-piece Hard Rock Maple Neck w 1-5/8″ Width & Medium Frets.

If you love playing Teles and want to expand your horizons…thiS is for you. If you are a hum guy but want to transition into Teles…THIS is for you.

THEN, one day you hear about Gil Yaron…bespoke…shhhh don’t tell anyone but there is this guy….a luthier…who has select woods and hand crafts LPs the old school way.  Hand carved tops.  Hand applied nitro.  Hand wound custom pickups.  Hand carved necks.  Brazilian boards.  THIN THIN nitro.  Then you see youtube videos and posts on Instagram of people with their Gilyarons…and you wonder wherefor to acquire such a piece.  THEN you learn they are no longer produced….and you scour Reverb…but they won’t allow them.

But PrimeGuitars is the Apex of Bespoke Gear….we find them…we stock them…we provide you real perspective and CHOICES so that your investment yields the tone you desire.  We take TRADE-INS and we accurately describe the condition of our gear.

2018 Gibson Custom Shop – Les Paul ’59 RI MURPHY

OH this one has a HUGE tone…it was selected for a great customer of a major music store.  The customer had a standing order for anything Murphy LP that was exceptional…well THIS IS exceptional.  First off just look at the top on this.  Second, consider it’s just a few home use nonsmoking months old.  Weight..just 8lb-8oz.  YES it comes with the CERT and TAGS and Unsigned Warranty Card. YES THE AGED LIFTON CASE TOO!

See all the SPECS & DETAILED CONDITION IN THE 3rd PICTURE

I played it and it blew me away.  Thickness galore.  Volume galore.  The neck is a perfect. .88″ – .98″.  No fretwear.  No issues.  LEMONBURST beauty that will.  I bent the crap out of the notes and THIS STAYED IN TUNE.  It totally stayed tight through every amp I experimented with.  It is one of those rare Les Pauls that just has the perfect EQ……GREAT MIDS but somehow the low e is still punchy and not farty.  I have to say I’ve had a lot of LPs but this one stands out as something people lust for.  If you are looking for that thin tone look elsewhere…thi one has THE CLASSIC LP tone you lust after.

SEUF Stratocaster – VALUE ALERT! WOW guitar at competitive price!

Lentz Reserve “Hyde Park” Tele – Double Bound

Lentz Reserve Tele “Hyde Park” that is JUST BACK from a FACTORY RECONDITIONING!   Read on folks!  Let me say that this instrument is THE single best playing Tele I’ve had in the store.  Is it the instrument itself or Scott’s magnificant setup/re-necking (read on)?….I don’t know but I DO know that it plays like nothing I’ve owned.  Got your interest?….

So this instrument was traded to me back in November; at that time I discovered that the neck had been shaved down to .77″…now rather than pulling the old “it was like that when I got it”, I took the advice of a dear friend and contacted Scott Lentz.  I explained the situation and Scott was AMAZING.  Scott said they had a super-flamey Reserve neck and could easily re-neck the guitar/set it up and get it back to me.  I was blown away that they would take the time and love to do such a thing.

Well, sure enough the Lentz team brought this baby back.  It has a BRAND NEW satin finish FLAME MAPLE NECK with Med/Hvy frets.  The neck is a C shape with a .875″ – 1.01″ depth and 1-11/16″ Width.  I can tell you it plays super smoothly and fast.  I have always LOVED Lentz guitars and say they are the STANDARD of the boutique guitar world…this would be the Hall-of-Fame example.

SEE ALL THE SPECS & DETAILED CONDITION IN THE 3rd PICTURE

Tonally it is a dream to hear.  It has that sustaining full note that blooms and sticks out.  You can play as fast as you like and the guitar keeps up.  You can di in and it responds.  The body has a couple of surface dings and some light contact surface hairline swirls…but nothing that should scare anyone away.  Read my feedback from actual buyers and see 2100+ positive glowing reviews about getting clean gear at reasonable prices.

Hahn 229 Strat – Custom Built for ME

Custom 1-off Hahn 229 Strat that was made for ME back in 2010.  Just an amazing instrument that rings and sustains like few I’ve had in the store.  This one was a great story.  I waited a long time for this…it arrived on a day when I had a customer in….the customer was trying strats.  Well one look at this and the customer said ‘hey can I check that out”….well the rest was history.  He HAD to have it…I mean HAD to.  So I sold it to him for what I paid…and he kept it virtually unplayed all this time.  When it was time for him to move it along I jumped at the chance to grab it back.

It resided in a nonsmoking home environment and was never gigged.  YES it has the Original Hardshell Case.  YES it has the Certificate of Authenticity & Build/Spec Sheet.

Those early McCarty Guitars were classics & that is why people scoop them up and hoard them.  Tonally they were fat and thick.  Great necks and great sustain.

1996 Kiso-Klein DK-1 Acoustic     Indian RW & Sitka Spruce

1996 Kiso-Klein DK-1 Acoustic Indian RW & Sitka Spruce

I am a HUGE fan of Klein Guitars.  As a dealer in boutique instruments we always seek them out.  THIS is a wonderful acoustic that was created by Steve Klein in collaboration with top Japanese luthiers.  This was created by hand and not some stamped out wannabe.  The guitar is as beautiful to the eye as it is to the ear.   The low E string retains clarity and fits with the rest of the instrument (a quality I look for in top guitars).   Loaded with overtones and easy to play.  VERY responsive to changes in your picking dynamics.

In this day and age of expensive mass produced, why not step into a custom luthier created classic.  That’s what we stand for here…alternatives that are BETTER for the same or less than the mass produced.

The woods are Indian Rosewood & Sitka Spruce.  The nut is 44mm and the scale is 644mm.  This comes with the original hardshell case.  The issue of note is there is a slight ‘hazing’ or clouding to the finish; this is a common problem with this type of finish.   Aside from that it is super clean with maybe a couple of very tiny little surface dings.  We specialize in clean gear.  All of our sales are on the internet so we understand how important it is to reasonably describe our gear (check our feedback).

2010 Gibson Custom Shop GOLD BOOK 1960 LP RI (Ltd Edition) 50th Anniversary

Super Rare GOLD BOOK Gibson Custom Shop 50th Anniversary 1960 RI Les Paul.  This is in Excellent Nonsmoking Condition (check the feedback for my store and buy with confidence).  It comes complete with the coveted GOLD BOOK Certificate of Authenticity, Tags and Unsigned Warranty Card.  Of course, it comes with the Black Gibson Form Fit Case (original of course).

This was part of an extremely limited edition to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic 1960 LP.  The neck on this is damn full and not skinny to my feel.  People say there are several variations of the 1960 neck and that some are more like 59s (closer to them)…this might very well be the case in this example.

SEE 3rd PICTURE FOR COMPLETE SHEET OF SPECS & DETAILED CONDITION

The weight is a perfect 8.5 pounds (8lb-9oz to be exact).  It features the original pickups and the guitar is unmolested with no mods and no repairs.  It is hard to find any flaws on this because it was owned by a collector and barely touched. We grade it as Excellent to avoid any disappointments.   The color on this is Sunset Tea Burst.

The customer who traded this in is known for grabbing a LOT of Les Pauls that he hand selects for his collection.  This will not disappoint.   Super sounding guitar and the color/flame is just breathtaking.
