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.

2014 Suhr Guthrie Govan SET NECK Modern

2013 Suhr SET NECK Guthrie Govan Modern!  Excellent “+” Condition with original case & Build Sheet!  From a smoke free environment.

Super cool guitar.  This one has some extras including upgraded aftermarket Joe Barden Pickups (originals NOT included and ‘no’ we don’t know what happened to them….I mean what would it matter….should we disclose that they freed themselves like el chapo did from those prisons…and ran off via an underground railroad for changed parts…they now reside on a secret island with JFK and aliens.  One day they will come back a’lookin’ for their husk….and there will be hell to pay!
See how senseless that question is…don’t be senseless….be CENTLESS and buy this guitar!

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.

Ronin MIRARI – Fiesta RED

Nothing adds to your tonal arsenal like a Ronin Mirari.   The pickups are so unique……not just a humbucker with an old screen over them.  They are uniquely engineered to harness the sound of your strings as they interact with the body & neck.   Ronin uses SOGR : OLD RECOVERED REDWOOD from their private forest.  The neck is a 1-piece Ribbon Grain SAPELLE.  The combination of select woods & pickups custom designed FOR these woods yields a tone that simply put…addicts you.

We are proud to be the world’s #1 dealer of Ronins Used & New.  You can deal with confidence because we have a track record for supplying instruments that are as good or BETTER than described.

We are the ONLY dealer to provide a detailed Spec & Condition Sheet (SEE 3rd PICTURE) outlining everything about our instruments.

Ronin Betty – the tonally most additive Tele you an acquire

Teles are HOT ….been hot…always were hot….if you’re like most Tele guys you have several…many…a library of teles.  What you lack is a Ronin Betty.  Why?   Because they are the most additive guitar TONALLY of any we have encountered…period.

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

Think of the proprietary Foil Pickup.  Not just some pickup with a screen cover….it’s a whole unique voice.  Put it this way…if you have a studio you invest more in mics than guitars…your pickup is your guitar’s mic….THIS MIC/PICKUP is SO unique.  Stringy, open, complex.  SO much information comes.  The neck can sound as much like bridge as it can a traditional neck pickup.  VERY responsive to tone knob changes too.  OH and the Redwood sounds like a brighter more Tele-like Les Paul….so THAT is why you NEED a Ronin Betty.

Ronin PHOENIX (Limited Run)

OH MY MY….this is a 1-off that will satisfy your itch for cool AND additive!   Recent Ronin Limited Run PHOENIX.  Start with Old Growth Recovered Redwood!  Add Ronin’s proprietary Single Foil pickups that are OPEN and produce SO MUCH INFORMATION.  Look at the BLOODWOOD Board and Pickguard on this.  NITRO finish.  Completely hand crafted.  Original Case & Cert.  JUST 6lbs-2oz.

SEE ALL THE SPECS & CONDITION IN THE 3rd PICTURE

The thing about a Ronin is they are THE most additive guitar tonally to your collection.  They sound like nothing you have or have had.  AND each one is so unique that when one pops up…you need to snag it because they’re not done in like runs. You are unlikely to find another like it again.

2016 Ronin Mirari – Ruby Red Slipper finish

2016 Ronin Mirari in hauntingly beautiful RUBY RED SLIPPER finish!  I was Ronin’s only stocking dealer and sold scores of their instruments.  This was ordered by my store and purchased by a local customer who hand selected it vs. all the others I had in stock at that time.  The color is both unique and exquisite.

Every Ronin sounds different…even within the same model.  This particular Mirari stood out as having a nice large warm footprint to compliment tne clear stringy inherent flavor of the design.

YOU CAN SEE THE COMPLETE SPECS & CONDITION IN THE 3RD PICTURE…but for those who want a summary of the summary:

  • SOGR Old Growth Redwood Body
  • Just 6lb-14oz
  • 25.5″ Scale
  • 1-11/16″ Nut Width
  • C .90″ – .95″ Neck Profile
  • Stew Mac 154 Wide/High Frets
  • 12 Radius

1994 PRS McCarty w Small Logo

Beautiful PRS McCarty from 1994.  This rare piece features the highly desired SMALL LOGO.  The guitar weights just 7lb-08oz and comes with the original hardshell case.  This piece lived in nonsmoking environments and is in EXCELLENT condition (SEE the 3rd PICTURE FOR A COMPLETE RUNDOWN).

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.

These are true bargains in the PRS World and continue to be quietly accumulated by those in the know.  Simple elegance with tone as good as any guitar or series Paul has ever put out.
