2013 Malinoski Nova – Mint “-“

Find a builder who has a Masters in Guitar Building…and artist…a craftsman who spent his life understanding and perfecting his craft….Peter M is that person.  I’ve visited his shop on several occasions and Peter is fascinated with the guitar, tone and the pursuit of perfection at a price point typically reserved for stamped out production rubbish (love that word).

Maple & Spanish Cedar body/neck.  Hand wound custom pickups to complement the instrument.  Wenge board.  Nice Medium V neck profile and 1-11/16″ width.  I specialize in boutique and especially love guitars that add something different to your collection…inspire you again…make you feel like you’ve been spinning your wheels.  This Malinoski, for $1599, is the cheapest rehab imaginable.  If it cost $10k you’d be drooling over it selling kidneys.

2013 M-Tone Slipstream

2013 M-Tone Slipstream in Excellent + Condition.  Lollar P90s.  Light weight at 7lb-8oz and expertly hand created.  Ergonomic and easy to play especially standing up.  For the price of a cheap import you can have quality, unique and tone.

If you see the spec sheet you’ll find a detailed overview of all the factors I weigh when determining a condition.  I believe you will find I go to greater lengths and provide much a more granular level of detail than any of my competition.  But alas, you will find the one microscopic pinhole and beat me like a drum over it…but I try…

LIPE Korina Twisted Soldato – Brand New!

LIPE Korina Twisted Soldato – Brand New!

Brand New Authorized Dealer! KORINA BODY & NECK! Carved Top! Cocobolo Board! Amalfitano Pickups. Matching Headstock! Loaded with upgrades because I ordered this to be ridiculous. Mike is one hell of a builder who puts such detail into every instrument. No two look or feel the same. But they ALL play the same great way and have warmth and clarity which to me are signs of a top notch guitar.

Scott Lentz Tele in Trans-white!  Just 6lbs-11oz with a 1 piece Ash Body. 1-11/16″ Neck and a 1 Piece Maple Neck with NO BOARD OVERLAY.  Scotts guitars DEFINE the word ’boutique’ and have been classics since the beginning of the movement.  If you want what most consider to be the benchmark of a boutique Tele (in this price range) then you owe it to yourself to get into a Lentz.  Loaded with other gear?…let’s trade.

6lb-4oz 1 Piece Ash Bodied Lentz T. Maple neck and 1-5/8 width. 9.5 Radius and just a few more nicks than a typical Tradarama guitar (see spec/condition sheet in the pictures). Not beat up but some edge nicks that will scare off the electron-microscope crowd. Save dough on a world class instrument that other dealers sell for too much. Want to have some fun?….call them and ask them how much they’d buy one for…listen to their tongues swell as they make up lies.

2013 Kelton Swade Strat – Exc “+” Condition

Just 7lbs-2oz of Kelton Strat-ness! These are very hard to find because most of what Kelton makes are Teles. No fret wear and just simulated wear/aging on this. I call it EXC+ to avoid someone getting out their electron microscope and determining one of the dings is non-Kelton-made!  This one SOUNDS like an OLD guitar…how?…not sure…but has that slightly aged but metallic thing going on that defines vintage Strats.

2010 Gustavsson FUTUREMASTER

Just 7lb-9oz of 1-piece Korina Bodied WOWness.  I stock these whenever I can find them and have sold 3 dozen+….they ALL sound different.  Don’t just buy one…let me help you find THE one for you.  I’ve owned almost every one of the Futuremasters produced and some have midrange humps, some scooped and some balanced.  Let’s talk about your collection and see where this fits…and I’ll help take you out of the redundant pieces to help make room.

2013 Gustavsson Fullerblaster – Alder

2013 Gustavsson Fullerblaster in Alder.  Swiss Army Knife tonal palette with Wolfetone Tele Bridge, Strat Middle and P90 Neck.  Brazilian Board (and CITIES Papers).  Amazing thin nitro finish.  The guitar breathes and has an organic tone lusted after by vintage enthusiasts.  This is a guitar worth consolidating your collection toward….let me help you determine what is duplicative in your stable.

2012 Gustavsson Fullerblaster – Ash

Early Gustavsson Fullerblaster. Ash body with Maple Neck & Maple Board. Wolfetone neck pickup and Duncan Bridge. Just 7lbs-3oz. Soft V neck profile and med/jumbo frets. I love this one because it just feels like an old guitar. The pickups are perfectly balanced whereas many F style guitars sound like different guitars on different settings. Bridge has just the right bite without being too much. The neck is airy with punch.

Ian Anderson SPEEDMASTER – Exc Condition

Sick of run of the mill PRS’s that are dipped in plastic and sound of mass production?…you’re ready to step up to a hand carved Ian Anderson Speedster.  This is an impossibly rare model (only a few on the planet) that features Honduran Mahogany & Flamed Maple.  25.5″ Scale keeps the snap a’comin   1-11/16″  Ian Anderson’s own hand wound PAF type clear pickups that won’t overpower the situation.

Ian Anderson Standard – Exc Condition

Hand carved from Mahogany & Flame Maple. Lollar Low Wind PAF-like pickups.  Brazilian Rosewood Board.  Just 8lb-2oz.  This Tele-Paul style brings clarity with boom at a price you’d pay for a stamped out bolt-on.  Is it a LP?…no…not boomy in the bottom end.  This guitar has a fat full bottom and mid and nice clear highs.  It sits together in the mix and holds its place.  It FEELS like a guitar should with a nice thin nitro finish.  Neck profile just a tad shallower than a ’59 burst…but not thin and NO not a ’60 (that’s always the trick question).  These are impossible to find new (good luck ordering one) or used.  This nonsmoking instrument is available but won’t last.
