2017 Mario Martin Strat.  Stop hunting for some overpriced glam spec, over-hyped nonsense and grab a guitar that has ALL the things you want & need…for a fraction of the others (and used it’s a steal vs. new).

SPECS & CONDITION IN 3rd PICTURE – YES the weight is there!

Nice Chunky Neck!  LOLLAR Pickups!  OHSC & CERT!

I included pictures of the Cert & Original Spec Sheet…why?…because for some reason, despite the fact I copy all this onto OUR OWN sheet (with more info than anyone), people demand to see the sheet….I ask “why”,…they say “i just want to see it”…then they always go POOF….leading me to believe these are the same lads who take sex tourism trips to 5th world countries and bring suitcases of chocolate & nylons just because they can make someone DANCE…so….sex tourist…your power is GONE…come up with another trick!….I know…”let’s get a pic of the TREM ARM”…I NEED TO SEE IT…..in the business we call you “Time Vampires”….don’t be a time vampire….

1958 Fender HIGH POWERED Twin Tweed –  Collector Condition

1958 Fender HIGH POWERED Twin Tweed – Collector Condition

1958 Fender High Powered Twin Tweed.  Super clean. I acquired it from a collection and it has been in mine.  The person I acquired it from purchased it from the original owner.  This has withstood time in a wonderful condition.  BUT it also is a freaking WOW amp.  Notes just sustain and bloom like nothing I’ve experienced.  I

This is NOT like every other one you see…where all the bad crap is hidden in block paragraphs…followed by “great sounding”.  This has a only couple of things to mention and we will mention them up front.

  • Speakers reconed a year ago by Neal’s Speaker Repair.  I A/B’d the recones against a vintage set and could not tell the difference.  The only reason these were reconed was the cones were damaged in shipping when I purchased the amp.
  • Not certain if the rectifier tube is original or not. It is labeled Amperex.  One preamp tube appears changed and original included. Other tubes appear original.
  • 3-Way power cable added by my tech (Cage Audio).  Original Included.
  • Couple of caps changed.

So that means the hande, tweed, trannies, grille, lettering….ALL ORIGINAL.

Couple of other things:

  • It comes with the ORIGINAL COVER
  • I plan to ship it in a custom flight case unless you prefer something else.
  • Sorry no sound samples, videos, demos, weighing, measuring, photographing in pre-dawn light or testing for radiation.
  • Sale is as-is unless it arrives smashed up.  That means…I don’t want to enter into your coveted post-purchase renegotiation because you believe X tube might not be original and your tech says the amp requires blah blah blaqh blah…if that’s your game…buy someone else’s.

The amp is wonderful.  There is a reason so many people hoard these.  I just find I don’t play it and it belongs with someone who will cherish and use it.

If you offer a trade: Make me a firm offer…no archtops, no broken/repaired stuff, no PRS, no illiquid crap you want to turn into A-grade collector quality gear.  Make it quality and I will respond.  No returns. No trials.  No approval periods.

ESP Custom Shop – Jeff Beck ESQUIRE

ESP Custom Shop – Jeff Beck ESQUIRE

THIS my friends is not an ordinary instrument.  This was one-of-three (I am told) ESP Custom Shop JEFF BECK ESQUIRES (George Lynch reportedly has one…maybe this was his?….).   Just look at the woods and craftsmanship and you can instantly tell this is a 1-0ff creation.

The headstock reads ESP Custom.  It has a 1-Piece HIGHLY Figured Ash Body with a top arm contour!

1-piece Maple Neck with a MAPLE BOARD and NO CAP...meaning the neck was one piece of wood and just drilled on the back for the truss rod….how many of these have you seen?…only on the finest guitars because it takes immense time, energy and skill to accomplish this.

Neck profile is a soft-V-to-C that the pros prefer.  It measures .895″-.995″ and is 1-11/16″ Wide with a 9.5 Radius & Medium Frets.

Seymour Duncan Tele Pickup.  AMAZING aging.  Fender Case (hardshell).

Guitar is from a smoke free environment.  The guitar vibrates in your hands.  The pickup spits nails full out…but back off the volume and it cleans up and conveys the warmth yet snappieness of the woods.

We stock the finest gear!  We sell the best modern & vintage gear.  When we tell you a piece is amazing….well, we have the experience to draw from so take it…

Mark Kane D-Style 100w 6L6 Head & Dumbleator!  BRAND NEW!  Authorized Dealer

Mark Kane D-Style 100w 6L6 Head & Dumbleator! BRAND NEW! Authorized Dealer

BRAND NEW!  You get the HEAD, “Dumbleator”…oh and the Footswitch!

Only Authorized Dealer!  IN STOCK!   Warranty!  Comes with 2 free revoicings (buyer pays shipping to Mark both ways) if you are not thrilled with the tone!

This is a rare production amp by Mark Kane.    Mark typically only produces custom amps.  He recently made this for our shop so that we could accommodate instant gratification.

The amp itself is a Dumble Style that Mark is universally famous for.  It features 100w of 6L6 Power.  It features the “HRM” tone stack which has the ability to dial in a bit more gain than the standard D tone stack (HIGHLY desirable).

Think Robben tone then note it has a touch more on tap.  Mark refers to this as his “Bluesmaster” style.  It comes COMPLETE with the HEAD, DUMBLEATOR and FOOTSWITCH.  YES the power cable too (you supply cables to/from the buffered effects loop).  The Dumbleator is Mark’s latest style with a Bright Switch.

Get this at the factory direct price adjusted for selling fees.  SORRY WE DO NOT DISCOUNT MARK KANE AMPS so please don’t ask.

Not convinced yet?….go to You Tube and search up some clips.  You can see buyers the world around select the Mark Kane for their D-style amps.  Mark is a renowned expert.  He doesn’t just take online schematics and copy them. Mark has spent his life studying, perfecting and re-perfecting his craft.  We have sold dozens and dozens….and they rarely come up for resale…that speaks volumes.

2018 Wysocki Tele : Just 6lb-6oz – Collector Quality WOODS!

Just 6lb-6oz in NEAR MINT COLLECTOR CONDITION!

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 Rolph telecaster versions that are open and alllow the woods to impart their organic warmth and natural sustain.

Speaking of woods…how about 1-piece AIR DRIED, 50-year old ASH body.  Oh, and a ‘sinker’ 1-piece Maple 150+ Year old Neck.  Think of this….D’Pergo Guitars made their reputation on convincing players that recovered woods make a difference…a D’Pergo with lesser specs runs $19k.   Get my point?   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:

  • 6lb-06oz
  • 12″ Radius
  • C Profile .84″ – .97″ Neck
  • 1-11/16″ Nut
  • Med/Lg Frets
  • Original Hardshell Case (no I won’t take a picture of it for you)
  • Trans-white NITRO finish

1994 MATCHLESS SC-30

1994 MATCHLESS SC-30

Early Matchless SC-30s are a benchmark of the Boutique Gear WORLD. They are the Lentz Strat/Tele or Murphy LP of amps.  Standards against which all else are judged.  Back when the company first went out of business I accumulated walls and walls of every variety of Matchless I could find.   I can safely say I’ve owned as many as most people have ever seen.   The SC-30 is the variety that stands out among all the models.

They have a certain girth that Vox and Bruno and the new entrants just can’t capture.  These things just freaking deliver.  I have had this in my collection because it’s just the amp I SHOULD be playing….so often we gravitate toward the amp/guitar we are guilted into playing because of peer pressure.  THIS is the amp that sounds best.  Period.

So pony up and get a clean smoke free version that was in a studio where it made music.  The studio is renowned for selecting amazing gear…this is no exception.

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!?

Carson Hess “Danny Gatton” Tele Replica!

Hailed by those in the know as ‘the next Nacho Banos’, Carson Hess crafts magnificent Telecasters.  This is a hybrid because a customer ordered a Carson Hess “Danny Gatton” Body then the customer supplied an Allparts Neck.  Now, for those of you who don’t already know this…almost no builder sits with a log and carves out Tele necks.  Most use purchased parts from trusted sources such as Allparts.  I don’t consider this a big deal at all.

SEE COMPLETE SPEC & CONDITION SHEET IN THE 3rd PICTURE

The guitar features a 1-piece ASH Body and 1-Piece Maple Neck.  Masterfully crafted to replicate Dany Gatton’s trusted workhorse.  The neck is a wonderful .855″ – .98″ C proifile.  Hand wound pickups.  Factory Aging.  Just a super steal of a guitar for someone tired of the well worn ‘starter’ Fenders in this price range.

James Trussart Steelcaster Deluxe – USED IN PROMOTIONAL ADVERTISEMENT!

Ahhh the early days of boutique guitars.  Remember paging through the latest magazines……who read the articles….much like Penthouse we liked the damn PICTURES….the ads….the action was in the margins of those magazines.  This is where we discovered the latest in cool.  The stuff not found in your local boring store.  I literally remember seeing THIS very ad (the one that this guitar is featured in) and wishing I could try a Trussart.

Think about it…luthiers send their finest gear to NAMM and they use their signature products in ads.  This 2007 Steelcaster Deluxe is the type of instrument that put James Trussart on the map LITERALLY.  It is collector clean.  Most would call it mint condition.

SEE THE 3rd PICTURE FOR A COMPLETE OVERVIEW OF SPECS & CONDITION.
