THEN I plugged my Bogner Uber into it....WOW...it is SO easy to use. Plug your amp speaker output into the input on the back....download the free software interface (lest we mention the lack of Axe-Edit availability) and you are ready to go. Immediately page through dozens of cabs and select from 8 different mics. THEN with the flick of your mouse move the mic placement to your tastes. If that isn't enough...there are TWO simulators in this!...AND there is a compressor, exciter, and some other tools. Simple home recording without having to move your family out...without having to crank and amp...without having to lose the feel of your beloved heads.</div> http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Two-Notes-Torpedo-VB-101.jpg No-Photos available 2017-12-09 15:38:59 2786 gib lp 50th 09262015 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2010-gibson-historic-50th-anniversary-59ri-1-of-59/ Guitars Gibson Historic 50th Anniversary '59 LP Historic 2010 (yeah I know....made in 2010 to commemorate '59 being 50yrs old).

I acquired this guitar AND it's twin (Strat) many years ago from the original owner.  Both were weather checked during transit (due to thin nitro).  I had me a bright ideeeaaaa....I sent them to Mike and had him refinish them both in his famed Zsa Zsa black (named after his beloved cat).  This black finish is extremely rare because it's so hard to apply.  This was the first Zsa Zsa black tele.  There was no structural issues just a color change.  Since the change the guitar actually sounded better to my ears (fuller)...not sure why. See all the specs and condition in the attached sheet.  Happy to help you identify if this guitar is tonally what you're looking for vs. the dozens of other DTs I've had. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/DSC_8408.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/DSC_8408.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/DSC_8410.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/DSC_8430.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/dDCHG.jpeg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/DSC_8420.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/DSC_8425.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/DSC_8426.jpg 2017-12-03 01:34:56 5426 lsl super car 09202016 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2016-lsl-superstrat-primeguitars-design/ Guitars LSL Custom - Super Strat 2016 $2599 Aged Candy Apple Red Sparkle For Sale or Trade Brand New - Authorized Dealer http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/2016_09_25_11_41_59.jpg <strong>BLOWOUT PRICE!  LSL CUT ME OFF AS A DEALER SO WE ARE BLOWING OUT OUR REMAINING STOCK OF LSLs!</strong> Ever since my days of youth, the Super Strat has been near &amp; dear to my heart.  I used to own Tony MacAlpine's (he was my teacher before he was famous....I was the worst player in the history of mankind.  He had a room with pics of stars...he used to put his fingers over the ears of Randy Rhodes when I tried to play that stuff).  Anyway...I've had tons including 6 of the $25k Fender EVH creations. One day I got to thinking...wait just a darn minute.  Most of the products on the markets are nothing more than partscasters.  Lance at LSL hand makes everything.  He cuts &amp; shapes his bodies and necks.  LSL winds their own pickups.  The guitars are consistently fantastic and affordable.  Why don't I work with LSL on a much needed Superstrat!? So the concept took root...and here we have 1-of-2 that are the prototypes for this offering.  All I can say is Freaking WOW...honeslty this has the bottom end that ALWAYS used to lack in other guitars. The mids are FULL.  The intonation makes chords sound like walls of tone.  I am not exaggerating when I tell you this is the finest Super Strat I've ever played.

This DC Custom has a 100% ROSEWOOD BODY.  It has a maple neck and a rosewood scalloped board.  12" Radius, jumbo frets, 25.5" Scale, Dimarzio Satriani Pickups.  Sperzel Locking Tuners.  No fretwear and nonsmoking. Tonally it sounds like freaking ten guitars.  It ate up my Bogner Uber. This guitar is a one trick pony folks...it is designed to outclass in Shred..and THAT it does to perfection. What I love about this scalloped neck is how easily it plays. Sometimes you can feel like you're fighting scallops.  Not so on this one. It really feels like you are playing air guitar.  You can FLY on this thing. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/DSC_6802.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/DSC_6829.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/DSC_6823.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/DSC_6821.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/DSC_6817.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/DSC_6802.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/DSC_6801.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/2016_09_29_13_21_08.jpg 2018-09-15 15:41:16 5810 callaham liverpool 112016 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/callaham-liverpool/ Amps Callaham Liverpool Unknown $3099 Greenish Tolex For Sale or Trade VG+ No-Specs available I was very fortunate to have spent hours on the phone with Kenny Fischer.  I'm not saying we were best friends.  I am saying we spoke regularly and sent each other CDs...stuff like that.  Great man who shared his knowledge with anyone who was decent to him.   Ken often spoke of a few builders whose work he liked.  Bill Callaham was one such name mentioned. Here we have one of the rarest amps on the planet.  Bill Callaham hand crafted this "Liverpool" back before the boutique craze invaded us with everybody who could get to Radio Shack for a soldering iron.  Bill's amps are regarded as classic takes of Holy Grails. Typically, these amps end up in Japan.  You can see certain dealers charging upper $6ks for these heads.  You can also see they don't last long. Tonally, this amp gets to the heart of what a "Wreck" does.  Turn volume of your guitar down and it cleans right up.  Phenomenal cleans that sound like THAT is what the amp was SUPPOSED to do....turn up the guitar and OVERTONES...SUSTAIN....GRIND....CRUNCH.  BUT you retain note definition...mmmm...I love it. Amp is from a nonsmoking environment.  It is ready to go and does not appear to have any mods or damage. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/DSC_7663.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/DSC_7663.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/DSC_7664.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/DSC_7669.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/DSC_7672.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/DSC_7674.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/DSC_7676.jpg 2018-07-14 22:19:22 6165 leo luthiers choice 012017 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2016-leo-guitars-luthiers-choice/ Guitars Leo Guitars Standard "Luthier's Choice" 2016 $5999 Mint Nicotine White For Sale or Trade Excellent "+" http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/2017_01_31_12_43_48.jpg Fresh off the production line in October 2016, this Leo Guitars "Luthier's Choice Standard" is FAR from ordinary.  One of the coolest guitars in ages because you would mistake it for a black &amp; white photeo except that the pickguard is Ebony &amp; Burled Maple so it sticks out like a colorized portion of a portrait. These hand crafted instruments are each 1-offs.  This one is featured on the luthier's website (leoguitars.com).  It features a Cedar Body with Maple Top.  Cedar neck with a MIXED set of frets!  First are heavier and then they get slightly smaller up the register (6100/6105).  1.70" Width &amp; 24.75" Scale make this a dream for those LP lovers who feel it's time to branch out.  Birdseye Maple Board that is museum quality.  Nice C-profile neck that will remind you of your favorite Gibson. Very light aging and tastefully done flame maple pickup rings add flair to the perfect lines.  Many have tried to do takes on LPs....this one succeeds.   Just 8lbs &amp; comes with the Certificate of Authenticity, Warranty Card &amp; Original Hardshell form fit case.

Why does this matter? Because passion is fueled by hunger and desire. These people simply set out to reach what they pictured in their minds eyes...perfection.  As we all know, in reality the standard instruments we all love are full of little imperfections, design flaws and head scratchers....but they didn't know that. The result, instruments that are created with heart and soul.  ONE at a time.  Hand carved.  Hand glued.   Nothing leaves the shop unless it meets their standards. This guitar is a complete hollow guitar.  KORINA Back &amp; Neck.  1 Piece Neck...1 Piece Body.  Just 5lb-1 ounce.  Ironwood board.  Custom wound pickups that are open sounding and play with the woods. And the price...new these are steals.  USED they are giveaways.  If you think your "Boutique" guitar is well made...do yourself a favor and check out a Fibenare. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_2863.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_2875.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_2864.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_2873.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/2017_01_28_20_17_10.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_2867.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_2863.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_2869.jpg 2018-07-10 23:24:18 6313 brua 022017 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2015-brua-phantom-pharaon-gold-leaf/ Guitars Brua Phantom Pharaon - Gold Leaf 2015 $3199 Gold Leaf For Sale or Trade Excellent http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/2017_02_11_11_48_12.jpg Pierrick Brua is a master luthier from France who has been building droolworthy instruments since 1993.  So skilled is Mr Brua that in 2007 he won the highly coveted "Meleur Ouvrier de France" Award bestowed upon the finest craftsman in France.   A graduate of the Roberto Venn School in Phoenix, Mr Brua makes fine Archtops, Acoustics and electrics.   These instruments are typically 1-off works of art that are rarely available on the primary or secondary markets. I was lucky to acquire this 2015 custom Phantom Pharaon that was finished in a labor intensive GOLD FLAKE.  Visually it looks like tiny sheets of gold are layed upon each other and a thin finish placed over top to preserve the look.  The components on this piece are 'spare no expense' varities.  For example, Mr Brua had Benedetti wind custom pickups for this instrument.  The Gotoh trem has a custom designed hydraulic spring system that allows smooth flowing bends.  The neck has scalloped upper frets to allow ease of playability and sustain where many guitars typically fart out. <b><u>SEE THE ATTACHED PICTURES FOR A SPEC/CONDITION/FEATURE SHEET </u></b> Mr Brua uses CTS Pots for his instruments. The guitar is housed in a custom form fit flight case.  From a wear standpoint, there are very minor things outlined in the Spec Sheet (see the pictures). If you are done with the run of the mill and want something that you can admire and enjoy for a lifetime, this is worthy of consideration. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_9316.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_9313.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_9318.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_9316-1.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_9305.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/2017_02_11_11_48_12.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_9327.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/DSC_9320.jpg 2018-09-15 15:05:13 6406 berumen 022017 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2012-berumen-flat-top-2-pickup-wolfetones/ Guitars Berumen Flat Top 2 Pickup 2012 $1199 Sunburst For Sale or Trade Excellent "+" http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/2017_02_26_18_11_43.jpg 2012 Berumen Flat Top 2 Pickup model.  I'm so impressed by the quality that goes into these instruments ESPECIALLY at this price point.  Wolfetone Legend Pickups, Tone Pros Bridge, Kluson Deluxe Tuners.  Hand crafted and uniquely designed.  These guitars sound and play like the big boys at a fraction of the price.  This particular guitar has a wider-than-typical neck width.

This piece features 25.5" Scale &amp; 12" Radius with a 1-11/16" Nut Width.  The frets are wide fat sort of like a Les Paul.  The pickups are Lollar "Raw Power".  The guitar comes with a hand written cert (it's actually a cavity cover too).  This is a 1-off I had built to my specs. Tonally think warm and airy.  If you are tired of aniemic reflective guitars then this is for you. <b><u>SEE ALL THE SPECS IN THE PICTURES - SPEC/CONDITION SHEET IS LOCATED THERE</u></b> http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DSC_0154.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Military-Drone.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Military-Drone-2.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/2017_03_29_13_58_47.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DSC_0177.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DSC_0176.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DSC_0154.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DSC_0166.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DSC_0171.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DSC_0173.jpg 2018-09-15 15:11:29 6571 driskill 042017 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/driskill-diablo-rare-22-fret-version/ Guitars Driskill Diablo 1999 $2399 Tobacco For Sale or Trade Exc "-" / VG "+" http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/2017_04_23_16_18_44.jpg Rare Early DRISKILL Diablo.  This was hand crafted by Joe himself before he started making his own hardware!  Check out the Abalone Dots!  1-Piece Honduran Mahogany Body!  Mann Trem.  PRS Tuners!  PRS Vintage Bass &amp; HFS Standard Treble Pickups (Early Ones too!).  5-Way Rotory Switch.

Only Phil X has one for his upcoming tour with Bon Jovi.   This amp is BRAND NEW.  I am an Authorized Dealer.   This very amp was lent to a major publication for review.   FULL WARRANTY Here is a link to the website with all the specs/info; “BRIVIDO” is the first of a products range that will be unified under the same concept. “Brivido” take his name from the emotion we felt on its first hearing.. we could translate it as “Thrill” or “Shiver”, something you can feel when music or tone are able to touch your soul and expand your creativity. We took inspiration from an idea of the 60’ era, where some crazy engineer designed tube power modules for Juke-box and live clubs. Made by few EL34 running in a very higher voltage than any others. Restoring many of these old modules, we found it a very good idea to be applied in a modern guitar amp, with some mods to increase his performances and safety as well. But this idea let us reach some of the most important results of our career, creating something can be defined as the “holy grail” of guitar amps. It works with just the double of dynamic range of any other existing amp, and you can feel it under your fingers. It can generate unbelievable power by only 2 tubes, more than 100W RMS, moreover, it sounds totally in the same way at any volume level, offering the best guitar tones you already know, but with unexpected dynamic, touch response and so easy to play. And this is the aim that all manufacturers has tried to achieve for many years. We made it as a three channel amp head, to let you try its incredible possibilities in every application. You wouldn’t believe the dynamic of a “Brivido” until you'll not tried out one http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/DSC_1537.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/DSC_1540.jpg 2018-09-15 15:12:43 6943 fodera 5 092017 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/fodera-custom-emperor-5-bass-65-year-old-woods/ Guitars Fodera Custom Emporer 5 2006 $4399 Trans Red For Sale or Trade Excelent http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017_09_30_18_30_15000.jpg This is one cool piece!  Fodera Custom Emperor in Trans-Red!   The thing about this guitar is that the woods were 65-years old before the guitar was made.  There is the optional Macassar Ebony Ramp included.  Also there is the Mike Pope preamp.  Abalone Inlays too!    The pickups are Duncan Hot Wound Jazz.  The weight is a fantastic 10lbs even.  The guitar was refretted in 2016 with Heavy Frets. Overall the guitar is extremely clean with just some very light feather surface contact scratches (the kind you only see in the light) and maybe a ding or 2.  The original case is inlcuded but it has some wear on it.  There is something written on the case indicating Atlantic Records NYC; not sure if this was used in a studio or not.  The Low B is REALLY clear and doesn't fart out or get lost. You don't find many Foderas in this color.  The upgrades and old woods make this a must have.

Great guitar you can afford and not worry about putting some honest wear on. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/DSC_2391.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/DSC_2388.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/DSC_2397.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/2018_01_13_16_42_36.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/DSC_2399.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/DSC_2401.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/DSC_2391.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/DSC_2387.jpg 2018-01-22 17:57:43 7325 COMING SOON http://www.primeguitars.com/product/coming-soon/ GUITARS ALWAYS BUYING ALWAYS TRADING CALL OR TEXT 703-919-0194 ALL SHAPES & SIZES EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN FOR SALE OR TRADE ALWAYS CLEAN GEAR http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Collage.jpg <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><em><strong>ECHOPARK GUITARS - AUTHORIZED DEALER - 12 COMING!  PRE-SALES STARTING</strong></em></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Wysocki 2-Hum Tele Style</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>D'Pergo Vintage Limited</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Mark Kane ODS Robben Ford Voicing - BRAND NEW</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Germino 2-12 Cab NEW - Ship Damage Dings</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Soloway</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>1966 Vibrolux Reverb</strong></p> &nbsp; <p style="text-align: center;"></p> http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/COMING-SOON.jpg No-Photos available 2018-09-11 22:40:25 7496 fodera 032018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2018-fodera-carved-top-imperial-custom-massive-upgrades-throbaksbrazwaverlyrs-pots/ Guitars Fodera Carved Top Imperial Custom 2018 $9999 Natural KOA For Sale or Trade BRAND NEW - Authorized Dealer http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/02ldN.jpeg BRAND NEW Fodera <u>Carved Top</u> Imperial Custom with MASSIVE Upgrades.  I tricked my orders out with everything I could think of vs. the standard specs.  This is Brand New with Warranty.  I am an Authorized Dealer. If you don't know Fodera, just ask what the best basses in the world are....Fodera.  These guitars are based upon 30+ years making instruments by hand 1-at-a-time for musicians covering all territories.  These guitars are created not stamped out.  Each is spec'd to achieve ergonomic &amp; tonal perfection. I can honestly say the only guitar that rivaled this was a Sakashta ($30k) that passed through my store.  The notes on Fodera Guitars are musical and smooth.  Full and even up and down.  No annoying frequencies.  Piano-like notes.  Smooth frets that you glide along.  Open sounding notes that just fill the space.  The guitar plays well with everything from my vintage amp stash to my Bogner. This is NOT a typical build either.  I paid thousands extra to get upgrades factory installed at the time of build.  Check out this piece: <ul> <li>Just 7lb-01oz</li> <li>Koa Top</li> <li>Mahogany Body &amp; Neck</li> <li>BRAZILIAN ROSEWOOD BOARD</li> <li>Waverly Open Back Tuners</li> <li>RS Pots &amp; Caps</li> <li>THROBAK SLE-101 Pickups</li> <li>12 Radius</li> <li>Med/Lg Frets</li> <li>C Neck Profile ('59 LP)</li> <li>Certificate of Authenticity</li> <li>Original Hardshell FODERA Logo Case</li> <li>24.75" Scale</li> <li>3 Way Switching without coil tap (coil tapping ruins tone)</li> <li>BRAND NEW WITH FACTORY WARRANTY</li> </ul> http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/DSC_2925.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/DSC_2930.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/02ldN.jpeg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/DSC_2943.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/DSC_2939.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/DSC_2936.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/DSC_2932.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/DSC_2925.jpg 2018-03-22 13:18:49 7526 wysocki t 042018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/wysocki-tele-old-growth-woods-hand-carved-6-lb-13oz/ Guitars Wysocki Tele 2011 $5999 Trans-Blonde Nitro For Sale or Trade Excellent http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/2018_04_02_08_35_50.jpg Larry Wysocki has been THE Go-To guy for luthier woods....for 50 years.  ALL the top bulders of acoustics and electrics source their custom guitar woods from Larry.  He is a world renowned expert on woods, tone and process.   Larry occasionally makes guitars by hand...himself...one at a time...cuts the necks...tap tunes the woods to find the perfect match....shapes the bodies.  Larry is ALSO a leading expert on ergonomics.  His guitars incorporate subtle improvements on classic themes that actually help you play better....because they sit better &amp; fit better. This circa 2011 Masterpiece is from the original owner.  It is from a nonsmoking environment and just went back through Larry who checked it over and set it up.  It is in EXCELLENT condition.  I carry the best modern boutique guitars....this TELE is one of my top 10 F-style builds that I've seen.  The finish is thin and sunken lightly into the hand selected 1-piece Ash Body.   The 1-Piece Birdseye Maple neck is 'sinker' wood that is what a D'Pergo would charge 2x for. Let me ask you...if Larry Wysocki has one of the world's finest wood supplies...do you think he chose good woods for his own builds?....you betcha.   Larry has an entire library of new Rolph pickups from which he selects in order to find JUST the right match.  These Rolphs are super clear and allow your playing nuances to shine through.  VERY open and play nicely with your amp and LOVE effects.  NOT an overpowering guitar tone....very much reflects the tones of the woods allowing you to hear what you paid for.  New this is $8500.   VERY rarely available new or used.  You can find all the Specs &amp; a Detailed Condition Sheet in the PICTURES but here is a tease: <ul> <li>Weight:    6lb-13oz</li> <li>Body:    1-Piece Old Growth Ash 45-Year Air Dried</li> <li>Neck:   150yr old 1 Piece Birdseye Maple "Sinker" Lake Recovered Old Growth Wood</li> <li>Frets:    Medium/Large</li> <li>Pickups:   Rolph</li> <li>Radius:    12</li> <li>Width:    1.65"</li> <li>Neck Profile:    C   .85" - .95"</li> <li>80+ Year Old Slab BRAZILIAN ROSEWOOD FINGERBOARD - hand selected</li> <li>NITRO finish</li> <li>Original Hard G&amp;G Case</li> </ul> http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3037.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3052.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3040.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3049.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3044.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3043.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/2018_04_02_08_35_50.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3037.jpg 2018-04-04 15:21:22 7535 mario martin 042018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/mario-martin-guitar-mill-serpantine-namm-just-5-lbs/ Guitars Mario Martin "Guitar Mill" Serpantine NAMM 2010 $1299 Inca Silver (Nitro) For Sale or Trade VG+ http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/2018_04_02_08_35_53.jpg So you want fun?...I mean a guitar that will freaking rock.  LIke a LP Junior with SNAP and Tele-like clarity?  THIS is the guitar you lust after.  IT might be a desert island guitar if you had a really limited budget....or a guitar to play out if you want awesome quality and don't want to wreck your pride and joy.  Whatever your needs...this one is additive to your situation. Need light weight?  How about 5lb-00oz....yeah....5 pounds even pal. Need quality?  How about TV Jones Powertron Pickup with that snarl and clarity Need a nice large neck too!?    How about a Soft V 1-piece Flame Maple Neck with a .92" - 1.00" Depth and Dunlop 6105 Frets, 9.5" Radius, and 1.65" Width. Need a guitar with some pre-existing wear to 'free your soul' to actually play it!?  This is it.  It has some dings &amp; this's and thats....all outlined in the pictures AND IN THE SPEC SHEET (Located conveniently in the Pictures). I just can't find a reason NOT to like it.  I wish I weren't such a talentless snob or I'd keep it in my collection.  I mean this thing sounds fat but not dark or mushy.  I freaking SHOULD keep it as my 'play out' guitar....except I hate crowds and have stage fright....so it would be another wall ornament.  It deserves a better life.  It does...BE THAT LIFE http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3103.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3122.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3116.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3115.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3112.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/2018_04_02_08_35_53.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/IMG_1634.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/IMG_1633.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/IMG_1635.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/IMG_1636.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3110.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3103.jpg 2018-09-15 14:45:11 7566 dt telegib 042018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/detemple-1-off-tele-gib-prototype/ Guitars Detemple Tele-Gib 2017 $6899 Bel Air Blue For Sale or Trade Excellent http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/2018_04_02_08_35_42.jpg The COOOOOLEST Detemple I've had...and I have had 10% of all he has ever made...over 50 at this point.  Let me tell you...nothing touches a Detemple for overtones in a F-style guitar.  Maybe it's the way Michael mates necks &amp; bodies during the build process.  Maybe it's the way he has the tightest neck-to-body connection I've seen.  Maybe it's the large necks and flame maple?  Maybe the 1-piece bodies from select light woods.   Maybe it's the hand shaping? Michael isn't just a world class luthier..he is also a world class player who has been on stage touring with some all-time greats.  It's one thing to be a builder...one thing to be a player...but a man who has done both at world class levels brings another dimension of know-how to the table. Such is the case with this one-off Tele-Gib "Jeff Beck" tribute comissioned by a friend of mine.  OHHHH it is a nice one.  Has that nice bottom end snap you lust for in a great tele....has that light weight you wish your LP had.....has that wonderful soft V neck you always lusted after.   This guitar just shined through every one of my vintage and modern amps in the library.   You like gain...come at it.....I threw a Bogner Twin Jet at it and it blew away my supposed 'shred' guitars.  Princeton Reverb....lush spanky cleans ...nice underwond pickups that don't color or over-push the amp. <b><u> New this was $9400 .   SAVE THOUSANDS plus the wait You can see ALL THE SPECS &amp; CONDITION in my proprietary Sheet in the PICTURES.  Because I know you won't read this I'll retype them below: </u></b> <ul> <li><b>Body:  Ash 1-piece</b></li> <li>Neck:   1-Piece Flame Maple</li> <li>Weight:  7lb-10oz</li> <li>PIckups:  Lollar</li> <li>Coil Splitting:  NO</li> <li>Neck Profile:   Soft V-to-C   .96-.98"</li> <li>Scale:    25.5"</li> <li>Nut Width:   1-11/16"</li> <li>Radius:  12</li> <li>Tuners:  510 Open</li> <li>Case:    G&amp;G Original Hardshell</li> <li>Frets:  Medium/Heavy</li> <li>Satin Neck Finish</li> <li>Titanium backplate</li> </ul> &nbsp; http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3191.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3196.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3217.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3211.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3208.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3205.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/2018_04_02_08_35_42.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3191.jpg 2018-04-04 15:50:52 7604 red rocket 032018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2016-red-rocket-atomic-two-tone-sea-glass-sparkle-green/ Guitars Red Rocket Atomic Two-Tone 2016 $1999 Sea Glass - Sparkle Green For Sale or Trade Excellent "-" http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/dCkU1.jpeg 2016 Red Rocket Atomic Two-Tone in Nonsmoking Condition with Original Hardshell Case.

New this was $5330 a couple years ago.  Used and in this condition it's a steal. You're getting an extremely clean instrument (SEE PICTURES FOR COMPLETE SPEC/CONDITION REPORT) and saving almost 1/2.  Why buy new? Check out the ridiculous Honey Burst finish done by hand in Nitro.  The neck is made or 5A Eastern Maple and features a .85"-.93" "C" Profile &amp; a Macassar Ebony Board with 6150 Frets, a 1-11/16" Width &amp; 12" Radius.  The tuners are my FAVORITE....510....they are smooth and precice and very ergonomic. The bridge is Faber. The pickups Wolfetone DR Vintage.   Hard to pack more quality &amp; hand craftsmanship into anything (especially at this price).  You could grab a stramped out Gibson and think you have something special....OR you can snag this and KNOW you have something special http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3263.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3271.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3286.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3283.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3277.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/2018_04_10_16_06_10.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3274.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/DSC_3263.jpg 2018-04-11 13:07:17 7727 holloway 042018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2018-holloway-tele-custom-hall-of-fame-woods-from-larry-wysocki-library/ Guitars Bryan Holloway Telecaster Custom PROTOTYPE 2018 $4999 Natural Burled Redwood For Sale or Trade Mint '-' http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/2018_04_10_16_06_16.jpg HALL-OF-FAME Wood Alert!  You litereally may never find woods this exotic again.  This is a Prototype 1-off guitar hand created as a "statement piece" to represent Bryan Holloway's entrance into the Boutique Guitar scene.  Consider this: <ul> <li><b><u>ALL WOODS FROM THE LARRY WYSOCKI WOOD LIBRARY</u></b></li> <li>1-PIece BURLED REDWOOD TOP &amp; BACK w a Swamp Ash 1-Piece Center.</li> <li>1-Piece EXOTIC BIRDSEYE MAPLE NECK &amp; BOARD.</li> <li>Custom wound ROLPH PICKUPS.</li> <li>NITRO FINISH.</li> <li>5lb-14oz of Chambered Amazingness.</li> <li>Double Bound Body (Top &amp; Back)</li> <li>"C" Profile .815" - .95" Exotic Neck.</li> <li>One of best fretjobs I have ever encountered.  When they say Smooth As Glass...they meant THIS guitar.</li> <li>Medium/Jumbo Frets</li> <li>1.65" Width</li> <li>25.5" Scale &amp; 22 Frets with a 9.5 Radius</li> <li>Gotoh Tuners</li> <li>Gotoh Tele Bridge w Brass Saddles</li> <li>CTS 250k Volume Pot &amp; CTS No Load Tone &amp;  .022 Tone Cap</li> <li>Original Hardshell Case (Thermometer Style)</li> </ul> So let's get down to it...Builder's name is Bryan Holloway.  For years Bryan has been a major player &amp; builder.  Brian works with a major guitar builder and focuses on custom builds for celebs and demanding private clients.  His skills have been fine tuned through a friendship &amp; apprenticeship with Larry Wysocki who is one of the most highly regarded builders in the world (Jon Herington of Steely Dan &amp; Steve Kimock of Ratdog to name a few).  To set the stage, imagine this...Larry Wysocki is THE industry go-to guy when it comes to woods.  Larry has been doing this for 50-years and has the most sought after timber in the world.  Larry's guitars are $8k+ and rarely available on the open market. I can tell you that I carry the best handmade boutique guitars currently made.  This is in the upper echelon of anything I've had.  Imagine PLAYING a Bentley automobile.  It is beautiful, tastefully elegant but underneath it's a performance vehicle.  You will have a nearly impossible time finding any guitar that is louder or more resonant unplugged.  This instrument is alive.  You will not likely EVER AGAIN find a Birdseye Maple Neck/Board this figured.  The Redwood...typically only found on $10k Guitars (see the current Suhr stamped out offerings for proof). If you're a collector, player or investor, this PROTOTYPE is one you want to grab.

You could wait a long time, pay thousands more and get a guitar that might be too dark or bright.  I love when guys say 'but they all sound good'....YES....they do...but some are dark...some growl...some twang....which do YOU want?...I probably have it IN STOCK http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/DSC_3657.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/DSC_3665.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/DSC_3689.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/DSC_3677.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/DSC_3674.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/2018_05_17_08_47_10.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/DSC_3671.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/DSC_3657.jpg 2018-06-30 18:31:29 7981 jg gt prime 062018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2004-gustavsson-bluesmaster-w-1958-gibson-p90s-one-of-1st-bluesmasters-in-usa/ Guitars Gustavsson Bluesmaster 2004 $11,450 Gold For Sale or Trade Excellent http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/2018_06_17_11_27_36.jpg 2004 Johan Gustavsson Bluesmaster.  YES this is one that came JUST after the famed "Wildwood 5".  I have hoarded this in my collection for many years.  I just don't play it.  I had a set of VINTAGE 1958ish GIBSON P90s professionally installed (YES, the original pickups are in the case).   This is as close as you will get to a vintage guitar. THE FIRST Gustavsson Goldtop in the US.  This is also the FIRST Gustavsson to feature a 1-piece Honduran Mahogany Back.  As you can see from the Spec/Condition Sheet &amp; pictures this instrument is in Excellent Condition.  It has been lovingly cared for and not gigged. Tonally this guitar will blow you away.  Beautiful slightly glassy yet warm and full Gibson P90 tone....only the vintage P90s capture this..and THIS set was sold to me by an author renowned for reviews of high end gear.  I have found that this set of pickups does not squeal like so many of the vintage P90s I've encountered..no promises in your rig but in my vintage Marshall &amp; Hiwatt it was freaking sick sounding.  THICK with that glassy top like an old Strat. You can get the growl you lust for. The JG shape also takes a touch of that "woofiness" out of the equation. Yeah this has a Brazilian Rosewood Board.  The guitar is lightly chambered (Thus the upper-7-pound weight).  It somes with a form fit tweed case.  Not certain if it's original but it's high quality and clean. You can get a later JG with P90s but the SUPER early ones like these command a huge premium.  Add in the vintage pickups, condition and the fact it came from my personal collection...and you are grabbing something that was truly handpicked by someone who has owned everything modern &amp; can keep anything I want.  I have VERY few guitars that make the cut into my collection. Why am I selling it?  Simple.....just found I have fallen in love with Teles and really just have not played it.  I have a stupid rule about adding when I sell.  I got a '51 Nocaster so this will go.  Keeps me honest. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4001.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4006.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4017.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4014.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4013.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4009.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_3991.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4012.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/2018_06_17_11_27_36.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4004.jpg 2018-06-17 17:15:39 7993 mckay explorer 062018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/mckay-explorer-replica-just-7lb-13oz/ Guitars McKay Explorer Replica Recent $4899 Natural For Sale or Trade Excellent http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/2018_06_17_11_27_33.jpg Ken McKay "G" Explorer!  Old Growth KORINA and hand bench-made craftsmanship.  You will be hard-pressed to find any Explorer of this quality and tone for this price.  I have had a LOT of korina guitars.  Most have a scooped tone...very few have the magical Midrange bump...THIS guitar has it.  The instrument sounds thick and fat like Missisippi Queen or your favorite classic rock. Nothing sounds like a great Explorer...they have that tightness that a LP can lack.  They have the fullness that nothing else can bring.  They also retain the high end that the other slab guitars often lose. This piece weights just 7lb-13oz.  It has typical "G" specs including 1-11/16" Width &amp; 12" Radius.  The frets are in near perfect shape with no grooves or noticeable wear.  The neck is a wonderful "C" profile typical of a Gibson.  The measurements are .91" - .91".   Very slight factory aging plus a touch of user imparted light surface wear.   Comes with a mean and tough original hardshell case. You can see all the Specs &amp; Detailed Condition on my SHEET in the PICTURES. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4159.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4162.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4177.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4171.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4168.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4165.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/DSC_4159.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/2018_06_17_11_27_33.jpg 2018-09-15 14:24:28 8002 gibson lp black 062018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2017-gibson-custom-shop-les-paul-painted-over-ltd-edition-7lb-14oz/ Guitars Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Painted Over Ltd Ed 2017 $4499 Black over Cherry Sunburst For Sale or Trade Mint '-' http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/2018_06_18_10_22_54.jpg 2017 Gibson Custom Shop LES PAUL Painted Over Series.  Mint "-" Condition with Original Brown Aged Case, Cert &amp; Case Candy/Tags.  This is a 1-owner piece traded in from a non-gigging, nonsmoking home player.  Just a few hours on it.

A super clean 1964/65 Fender Stratocaster with Original Hardshell Case!</strong> <b><i><u>NOT A REFIN</u></i></b> <div><b><i><u>NOT A REFRET</u></i></b></div> <div><b><i><u>ORIGINAL PICKUPS</u></i></b></div> <b><i><u>NO FUNNY BUSINESS UNDER GUARD</u></i></b> Ok now that we have those obvious questions out of the way let's chat.  This one has a very late 1964 neck and very early 1965 pickups (first 1/2 Jan 1965).  Call it what you want.   Some say '64...some say '65.  The pickups are all original and not rewound.  The color is amazing and clean.  Some wear, yes, and dings but a super clean instrument for this era. The frets are in exceptional shape and I can't even find grooves. It weights just over 7.5 lbs which is in the sweet spot everyone is looking for. You can see it was used sparingly.  I have a LOT of pictures and happy to send them if you are genuinely interested. YES it blacklights.  The guard appears original as does the wiring and pots.  Use your own judgement because it's sold AS-IS and I'm not getting into a debate over every screw on this.  The TREM ARM IS INCLUDED...best I can tell it's original.  Decal is original. AMAZING BALANCED PICKUPS!  That mid-60s Tone you are searching for!   Plays just like a great mid-60s Strat!  Doesn't smell like smoke either! If you're going to spend money you should search for one that is this level of clean. The premium for "mint" guitars just is too high PLUS you won't play them.  This one has just a couple of wear spots that allow you to enjoy it WHILE maintaining the fact that it's in this echelon of clean. I have to say these old strats are everything you could ask for.  LOVE the carve.  LOVE The pickups and how responsive they are.  They bloom and sustain.  Jangle yet can thicken up with a cranked amp.   There is a reason people covet these.  And again, this is one you can play AND collect. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/DSC_4180.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/IMG_2943-e1530839680545.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/DSC_4180.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/DSC_4201.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/DSC_4202.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/DSC_4204.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/DSC_4210.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/DSC_4214.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/DSC_4219.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/IMG_2944.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/IMG_2940.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/IMG_2933.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/IMG_2945.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/IMG_2948.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/1cXeKkG.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/ZPOB047.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/aP24mVV.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/95pvtUK.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/4WhLb48.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/2ub4YkQ.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/owXwIP3.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/rggWwfi.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/RHgqvtN.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/rxxqQnl.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/xr8uh3m.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/VWauAIq.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/STQIMFv.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/ryP05pi.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/nJDIvLz.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/imEZOK6.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/ERgbFnH.jpg 2018-09-15 15:16:57 8122 cornish flanger 062018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/pete-cornish-flanger/ Pedals Pete Cornish Flanger Recent $3333 Grey For Sale or Trade Excellent "+" No-Specs available mpossibly Rare PETE CORNISH SUPER FLANGER in excellent nonsmoking condition with box &amp; power cable (no instructions).   YES THE SEALS ARE UNBROKEN.  Works as it should and BOY it is the CLEAREST and most LUSH and USABLE flanger ever made.

Save a good amount of cash vs. a new one.  Tubes have very little life on them and are the originals.  No repairs.  No issues.  No mods.  No stories.

Tonally this is like getting hit with a midrange tank.  VERY full sounding and musical.  Definitely not the thin shrill sound of so many LPs you've tried and flipped. <b><u>SEE COMPLETE SPECS &amp; CONDITION SHEET - IN THE PICTURES</u></b> This one is in Excellent "-" Condition with OHSC.   The neck measures a nice .86"-.97" which is just a tad smaller than a typical '59LP.  Ebony board gives some snap to compliment the dense mahogany used with the maple top.  Grover tuners are my favorite on LPs.  They are smooth and hold their place.  A touch of some fretwear that a luthier could knock out if it bothers you...it doesn't bother me so I leave it.  Really the 'wear' to note is typical contact touch/rub wear.  There are a couple of very minor surface pinhead dings but nothing serious &amp; certainly no structural issues. If you want a LP that sounds full and fat &amp; you want to capture that classic LP tone...this is the one for you. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4414.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4423.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4426.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/IMG_4270.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4746.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/IMG_0471.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4743.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4739.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4417.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4735.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4738.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4414.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_08_18_17_43_29.jpg 2018-09-04 20:47:22 8187 glendale 082017 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/glendale-tele-aaa-flame-large-neck-double-bound/ Guitars Glendale Tele - Double Bound Recent (Unknown) $2099 Seafoam For Sale or Trade Excellent http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_08_18_17_43_52.jpg Impossibly rare Glendale Double-Bound TELE!  This guitar features a 1-piece AAA Flame Maple Neck that is LARGE at .99"-1.02"...sort of a Soft V profile.  It just resonates till tomorrow.  The specs are otherwise familiar with a 1.65" Nut width, 6105 Frets, 25.5" Scale, 9.5 Radius and K-Style Tuners. The body is Ash and finished in a NITRO and features factory aging to allow you some 'oh I didn't just bang it' comfort. The pickups are a Lollar A3 GVCG in the Neck &amp; a Mare 0038 in the bridge.  Of course there is a Glendale bridge. <b><u>SEE ALL THE SPECS &amp; CONDITION IN THE PICTURES  - SPEC SHEET</u></b> Tonally this one has a wonderful fundamental tone that is extremely even.  The low E has a nice ring to it and doesn't mud out.  What I LOVE about the guitar is how it has some nice snarl and can push an amp if you want.

YES - It has the Original Hard AMERITAGE CASE NO - There are no repairs or structural issues.  Just some touch spots that are barely noticeable <b>(SEE THE PICTURES FOR A COMPLETE SPEC/CONDITION SHEET). </b>The neck is a wonderful "C" profile that measures .865" - .967" and has what appear to me to be Medium Frets.  The pickups are THROBAK SLE-101 Plus MXV versions and are original to this custom guitar. <b> I just love the top on this guitar.  It shows so 3D in different angles yet the finish is subdued so it doens't scream out like a circus beacon. </b> http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4672.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4671.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4679.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4677.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4680.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4672.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4669.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_08_30_13_18_21.jpg 2018-09-05 23:39:31 8212 collings cl 082018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2015-collings-cl-w-throbaks/ Guitars Collings CL #253 (Early) 2015 $3399 Burst of some sort For Sale or Trade Excellent http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_08_18_17_43_38.jpg 2015 Collings CL with THROBAK PICKUPS!  This guitar was also professionally upgraded with NOS Sprague Paper In Oil Caps (originals in case).  The instrument is in EXCELLENT Nonsmoking Condition and of course comes with its original hardshell case (Ameritage). It weighs just 7lb-15oz and features a 1-piece Mahogany Back!  The neck is a perfect "C" Shape that measures .87"-.96"...for those who don't translate...this means it's slightly more comfortable than a 59RI Les Paul.  The nut is a touch wider than a LP too at 1.70" which means you have just a hair more room to bend comfortably on the 12" Radius Neck. VERY clean piece and you can see by our feedback that our instruments arrive as advertised.  <b>PLEASE SEE THE PICTURES FOR A COMPLETE SPEC/CONDITION SHEET.  </b>We are the only ones in the business who take the time to go through an instrument and provide this level of detail.  The result, buy from a store, with a fantastic reputation....and get what you expect. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4682.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4684.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4701.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4703.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4705.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4688.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_08_18_17_43_38.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4682.jpg 2018-09-06 20:10:35 8220 Wysocki 082018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2018-wysocki-tele-just-5lb-9oz-ancient-woods/ Guitars Wysocki Tele 2018 $6999 Trans-White For Sale or Trade BRAND NEW - Authorized Dealer http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_08_18_17_43_40.jpg Brand New 2018 Larry Wysocki Tele!  Crazy specs on this one.  Read on....you can look at D'Pergo, Detemple, Yaron, Lentz, Gustavsson but you won't find this in any of them: <ul> <li>SOLID BODY:  Weights Just 5 lbs-9 oz</li> <li>Brazilian Rosewood Board:  80+ Years Old</li> <li>1-Piece 150+yr Old Flat Sawn Birdseye Maple Neck</li> <li>1-Piece 100+yr Old Flat Sawn Swamp Ash Body</li> <li>12" Radius</li> <li>1.67" Nut Width</li> <li>Medium Frets</li> <li>C Neck Profile .83"-.945</li> <li>Rolph Pickups:  Hand selected for THIS guitar</li> </ul> Larry Wysocki is THE "Go TO" guy for woods.  He has been doing this for 50-years.  All the major builders go to Larry when they have a high end order and need special stuff.  Larry picks the best of his stash for the few custom guitars he personally builds each year.  Larry scours the planet for the finest timber.....and YOU get the best of the best. A D'Pergo with these specs would be (are you sitting) close to $20k...yup....and they can't get this wood.   Larry has built guitars for major artists.  He typically only sells directly to A-list guys.   It is extremely rare to acquire a Wysocki new.  I am thankful for my relationship with Larry and hope to continue our friendship. I have sold several Wysockis already...they have gone to folks with all the big names.  I have consistently heard that the Wysocki beats them all. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4864.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4859.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4863-1.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4860.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4862.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4861.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4864.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_08_18_17_43_40.jpg 2018-09-06 20:27:27 8228 homestead 100 082018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/homestead-hundred-upgrades-galore-6550-tubes-effects-loop-same-setup-as-warren-haynes/ Amps Homestead Hundred 2018? $2899 Cowboy For Sale or Trade Mint No-Specs available Impossibly rare CUSTOM Homestead Hundred.  This one is a 1-off specially made by Peter for a good customer.  This one has an Effects Loop....the only other one with a loop is the one Warren Haynes has.  This also has 6550 tubes.  YES IT HAS A FOOTSWITCH (not pictured but included).    VERY low hours and nonsmoking ungigged and unmodded. This comes from one of my best customers who purchased this amp then ran into sudden new home repair costs.  You can get one that has major upgrades for less than the price of a new one. Search Youtube and you can hear clips of this amp.  It is a WOW piece.  Simple but WOW.  Get in on the ground floor of these Homestead Amps....they are the real deal. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4800.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4801.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4807.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4806.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4803.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4800.jpg 2018-09-06 22:04:34 8234 victoria bassman 082018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/victoria-45410-bassman-super-clean/ Amps Victoria 45410 Bassman Recent $1999 Tweed For Sale or Trade Mint '-' No-Specs available Victoria Bassman a.k.a. 45410 in Near Mint nonsmoking original condition.  New these are $2900 and this one is super clean.  You can see by my hi-res pictures that it was a home only use piece.  Tubes look as clean as the rest of it (i.e. it's not been played much if you haven't already caught my drift). These amps are just wonderful.  I've had many and they are consistent tonally.  They just capture that vintage Fender tone in an affordable format.  New these are amazing deals...USED and in THIS condition you should jump on it. Think about it.  The other guy already took the price hit. You can enjoy this one and move it along and likely get pretty much what you paid (or more).   IF you've ever lusted after this amp....or if you just want to take a flier on a new amp...this is the way to do it. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4808.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4812.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4808.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4810.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/IMG_2798.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4813.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4815.jpg 2018-09-06 22:30:26 8242 jg 2005 082018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2005-gustavsson-bluesmaster-fat-midrange-tone-on-this-one/ Guitars Gustavsson Bluesmaster 2005 (EARLY) 10,699 Burst of some sort For Sale or Trade VG+ http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_08_18_17_43_57.jpg Rare 2005 Gustavsson Bluesmaster.  This is an extremely early and highly desirable version. People hoard the early JGs because they are regarded as the best era for this handmade instrument.  I have sold over 4 DOZEN JGs so there are few people with more experience.  A select few have a wonderful warm fat midrange..,...THIS ONE DOES. I can tell you from experience that every single one of these guitars sounds quite different.  If you are spending this much money on a guitar, please take the time to find the right one for you.  Yes they are all good sounding....but they are all different.  Take the time and ask the seller about their guitar....and watch out for bs like 'it's like a great burst' or 'it blows away my r9'.  That doesn't help you does it?  Maybe their R9 is scooped sounding and this is less scooped and you want a mid-hump.  See my point? <b>So this piece has some light wear (see the spec/condition sheet in the PICTURES) for all the details. </b> No major issues in my mind but if you want mint then this is not for you.  I try to describe my items accurately and take more time than any other seller to prepare a detailed document with weight, wear, and the best specs I can determine for each piece.  My feedback should assure you that the overwhelming majority of buyers agree. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4271.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4408.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4402.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4396.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4308.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4304.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_08_18_17_43_57.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4271.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4286.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4289.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4293.jpg 2018-09-09 21:49:35 8253 ep 59 082018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2018-echopark-59-custom-brand-new-auth-dealer/ Guitars Echopark 59 Custom 2018 $5600 Custom DETROIT Pehlam Blue For Sale or Trade Brand New - Factory Warranty - Authorized Dealer http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_08_30_13_18_24.jpg BRAND NEW 2018 Echopark '59 Custom!  Just in!

This is not an ordinary piece from Fender.  First off it has a SELECT LIGHT WEIGHT BODY (Ash).  The whole guitar weights just 7lb-1oz.   Second is has a thin NITRO finish and custom seafoam green sparkle finish (note I am also selling the matching Tele...hint hint).  Third it has a COMPOUND RADIUS of 9.5"-12".    The neck measures a perfect .83"-.985". You can see all the specs and detailed condition if you look in the PICTURES.  The real thing to note is the pickups are Bare Knuckles (not certain of exact model) and the ORIGINALS ARE IN THE CASE.  YES it comes with the Cert, Stratp and ORIGINAL CASE.  From a loving home use nonsmoking environment. Get a COOL 1-off that guitar at a fraction of a Masterbuilt..but this kills any Masterbuilt I've had. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4139.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4144.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4154.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4153.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4150.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4147.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_06_17_11_27_25.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4139.jpg 2018-09-11 13:35:45 8350 homestead 50 082018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/homestead-50-head-mint/ Amps Homestead Fifty Recent $2399 Cowboy For Sale or Trade Mint "-" No-Specs available <section class="section--listing-readmore"> <div class="description listing-description-readmore">Homestead 50 amp in MINT condition!  This head is from a one owner, nonsmoking home environment.  It works as it should and has 6L6 tubes.  See why the stars are gravitating toward this hand created brand of amps.  SIMPLE format, VERY interactive dials, HALF POWER switch &amp; REVERB.

Mark's D &amp; T style amps are renowned as THE ones the get.  You can see the videos online and players around the globe seek them out.  Mark doesn't just copy schematics found online...he has spent his life inside these amps working on them, studying them, playing them and decoding the secret sauce. Wrecks have THICK LEAD TONES and NOTE BLOOM like you have never experienced.  They clean up perfectly when you roll down the guitar's volume. The one knock on Wrecks is that they can be pretty loud; therefore Mark decided that on this one he would include his minimally invasive Master Volume.  The result is the best of ALL worlds! This amp comes with a free re-voicing (you pay shipping to Mark both ways) if you don't love it.   It is, however, a final sale and not exchangeable or returnable. Avoid the wait and get the amp you wanted!   NOTE: I will not accept best offers on this item out of respect for Mark's prices which I uphold.  This has a slight premium added to cover selling fees from Reverb but it is priced exactly the same as what Mark would charge (and you avoid the wait). Want something custom?  Email me and we can work on the perfect D or TW style amp custom built from Mark. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4957.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4962.jpg 2018-09-11 23:43:32 8362 JG FM Hist Make 082018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2010-gustavsson-futuremaster-historic-makeovers-refin/ Guitars Gustavsson Futuremaster 2010 $6399 Oxblood (Historic Makeovers Refin) For Sale or Trade Excellent http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_09_12_11_41_33.jpg One of my favorite guitars is a Gustavsson Futuremaster.  Slab Korina Body....nice full '59 LP Neck....Brazilian Board.....Simple format yet SO much more musical than your typical "Jeff Beck" format.  Maybe it's the hand selected Korina (1-Piece Bodies like these are impossible to find these days)....maybe it's the nitro finish.  Maybe it's the construction expertise that Johan Gustavsson has perfected over 30+ years of building. Whatever it is, the Futuremaster just simply captures what you dreamed this format could.   The korina provides that snap of a F style guitar but the GROWL of a LP.  It really is THE perfect wood of choice for a slab body instrument.  The Mahogany format can get too dark.  The Ash can lack oomph.  Alder is bright because " 'tis Alder" (as Michael Stevens once told me). This particular guitar was sent to Historic Makeovers for a Refinish to Aged Oxblood.  The former owner was going for THE ultimate Beck Style Guitar.  The pickups were swapped out for Bare Knuckles (not labeled so not certain of the model....and NO I do not have the originals).   To my ears, these pickups have a touch more push than the wolfetones that were likely in this instrument (frankly I find Wolfetones harsh in these guitars so I can see why the pickups were swapped out). The Case is a MONO heavily padded bag which in my mind is superior to the ill-fitting Hiscock Cases....again the former owner (and I) viewed the case as a major upgrade. <b>You can see all the Specs &amp; Detailed Condition in the Pictures</b> http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4922.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4924.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4922.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4932.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4931.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4927.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4925.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_09_12_11_41_33.jpg 2018-09-12 21:52:59 8371 DP VL 082018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2015-dpergo-vintage-limited-w-sig-ltd-electronics-pkg/ Guitars D'Pergo Vintage Limited 2015 $8999 1971 Mojave Tan Metallic (Think Shoreline Gold) For Sale or Trade Mint "-" http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_09_12_11_41_41.jpg D'Pergo Guitars are considered by many to be the top of the food chain along with Detemple &amp; Wysocki (for F-Style Guitars).  I can personally attest to the fact that you will be hard pressed to find a more perfect hand-made instrument.  Think of a Bentley.  The finish is deep.  The woods are visually luscious.  The attention to detail like softly rolled fretboard edges make you understand that this guitar took multiples of time to create vs. 'the pack'. I've been very fortunate to have nearly 50 D'Pergos pass through my store &amp; collection.  I am not an 'expert'...only Mr D is....I am experienced...and I can help you gain perspective on making this type of investment for the Ultimate S style instrument (if you so determine this is THE one of the 3 major names best suited for you). Now a moment of truth.  D'Pergo Guitars have gotten much more expensive as his models have evolved, craftsmanship evolved &amp; materials gotten better and better.  An AVC (Aged Vintage Classic or Drop Top) is a FINE instrument but NOT generally in the same league as a Vintage Limited.   I only mention this because there are so many models floating around that it is easy to think 'oh they are all the same' and over-pay for one and think the other is overpriced. This instrument has a deep finish reminiscent of Shoreline Gold.  It features a Recovered Alder Body &amp; a Certified Primary Growth Recovered Quartersawn Maple Neck.  The weight is a fabulous 7lb-5oz which is particularly good considering this guitar has a NICE FULL "Offset C Vintage" Neck profile .945". Of course it is in near mint condition with it's original form fit case, spec sheet and cert.  If you look in the PICTURES you can see MY version of a Spec Sheet that outlines Condition as well.  Rest assured my sheet has all the salient points from the D'Pergo Sheet so you need not ask for pictures of that. The electronics are another area where the newer D'Pergos excel. This guitar features the pricey 'Limited Handwound Alnico 3 Heavy Formuar" pickups.   It has the Signature Limited Electronics package. Another interesting point is that Mr D'Pergo also has done what I believe others should do....he harnessed vintage steel with which to mill the Trem Block.  Now this might not seem like a huge deal but metal experts (yes I speak w them and geek out on this stuff) say it is impossible to get good steel anymore....they claim the new steel is inconsistent and sounds like crap (Their words).  I always say "why not get a chunk of old steel and make parts" ....glad Mr D'Pergo has done this. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4250.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4252.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4264.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4261.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4258.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4255.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4250.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_09_12_11_41_41.jpg 2018-09-12 22:17:30 8387 ta7 082018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/tom-anderson-drop-top-seven-7-string/ Guitars Tom Anderson Drop Top SEVEN 2013 $2999 Trans-Black Burst For Sale or Trade Excellen http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_09_12_11_41_38.jpg My personal guitar.  A few years back I fantasized about being a 7-string player....so I went and found a fantastic brand new one and grabbed it.  Since that point I realize I can't even handle one string let alone 7.   I played this very sparingly in my nonsmoking home studio.  The only wear to speak of is a slight ding shown in the pictures.  <b>You can see the rest of the details in the PICTURES where I provide a SPEC/CONDITION sheet. </b>The guitar has no mods and no repairs.  It comes with the Unsigned Warranty Card &amp; Original Hardshell Form Fit Case (and yes the trem bar....who ever passed on a guitar because it was missing the bar...but still hey ask....and if the answer is 'yes it has the bar' you can count on another email asking "picture"...I guess some people can't trust anyone over anything....i always want to ask "who stomped you my precious little flower". Ok enough of that senseless drivel. The guitar sounds fantastic.  Very tight. I love the Chocolate Maple Neck with its Satin Finish.  Like I said, all the specs and condition are outlined in a sheet contained in the PICTURES so please have a look....and YES it has the TREM BAR.,...LOL http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4818.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4820.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4825.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4827.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4823.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4821.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_09_12_11_41_38.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4818.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/IMG_1063.jpg 2018-09-15 13:54:07 8389 wysocki 2hum 092018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2018-wysocki-jeff-beck-tele-brand-new-monster-aged-woods/ Guitars Wysocki Jeff Beck Format Tele 2018 $7999 Tobacco Burst For Sale or Trade Brand New - Authorized Dealer w Warranty http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_09_12_11_41_43.jpg If you buy high end guitars you have thought about woods...is it a 1-piece body or 2? Is it Brazilian Rosewood or Indian?  Is it Honduran Mahogany or other.  Is it stump wood or primary growth?  On and on.  And some builders use this info against us...they tell us what we want to hear only to later find out it was a lie (remember the Gibson 2-piece fretboards...LOL).  Some builders like D'Pergo specialize in high end woods and charge near $20k for a new F-style guitar (yes that is true).  Some claim to have great wood but then the guitars are boat anchors.  Lastly, even great wood in the hands of a hack can be wasted.  Construction and attention to detail are vital to any instrument's tone &amp; playability. Larry Wysocki has been THE go-to 'wood' supplier to luthiers for over 50-years.  He scours the planet finding the oldest air dried fine quality dry woods available.  He has a stash and digs into it to make a few guitars a year.  Most often these instruments are custom orders for celebs.  Occasionally Larry makes a guitar and an order cancels...thus is the case with this spectacular piece. If you ever wanted THE ULTIMATE Jeff Beck style Tele....THIS is the one you want.  nothing has been spared...and new this is HALF the price of a D'Pergo...and the woods are better.  Tonally....I find Wysockis to be much more alive and 3D tonally.  The notes are even and clear. There is a snap and organic transparency that comes through.  Larry literally finds THE perfect pair of pickups for each guitar....he has a stash from all the hard-to-get winders. For the price of a Fender Masterbuilt you can get a REAL Masterbuilt from a guy who literally chose the best woods on the planet for the guitar.   <b><u>You can see all the Specs in the sheet in the PICTURES. </u></b>   For now here is a summary of what your money gets you: <ul> <li>5A 1-piece Flame Maple Top w Early 1900s Air Dried One Piece Swamp Ash Back.</li> <li>5A 1-Piece Flame Maple Neck from Early 1900s Air Dried</li> <li>Brazilian Rosewood Board : 80yr Old Air Dried</li> <li>Tom Doyle Pickups - personally selected by Larry for THIS guitar</li> <li>Just 7lb-3oz</li> <li>Pickup rings, knobs and switch tip from 80yr old Air Dried Brazilian Rosewood.</li> <li>1-11/16" Nut Width</li> <li>Med/Lg Frets</li> <li>12 Radius</li> <li>.85" to .967" C Profile Hand Carved Neck</li> <li>DOUBLE BOUND BODY</li> <li>Brand New with Warranty</li> </ul> http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4933.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4939.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4951.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4946.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4945.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4942.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_4933.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_09_12_11_41_43.jpg 2018-09-15 13:50:37 8390 dt t jones http://www.primeguitars.com/product/detemple-52-tele-hall-of-fame-tone-on-this-guitar/ Guitars Detemple '52 Tele 2005 $5799 Trans-Butterscotch For Sale or Trade Excellent "-" / VG"+" http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_09_13_09_26_38.jpg So years ago I got a set of Detemple Twins in....and they were both the best fattest fullest balanced DTs I'd had.  Sadly they both sold....even sadder to different buyers.  I am lucky that years later, one player (this guitar's former owner) moved into stricktly humbucking instruments and traded it back. Not sure what it is about this guitar but the tone on it is just as good as I've heard on a Detemple (and you know I've had 50+ of them).  The neck is FAT at .957"-1.00"....but it's a Soft V so it makes it SO much more manageable. This has acquired just a few dings and contact light surface hairline swirls.  Overall extremely clean but I have outlined the condition in more details in the <b>Spec/Condition Sheet (FIND IT IN THE PICTURES)</b>. The early DTs are considered by many to be his Golden Years because Mike alone was making them.  This particular one stands the test of time.  YES there are others that LOOK like this...but there is only ONE '52 JONES tonally.  Again, I have spoken. http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_1500.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_1501.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_1503.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_1506.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_1497.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_1507.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018_09_13_09_26_38.jpg http://www.primeguitars.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/DSC_1500.jpg 2018-09-15 13:46:22 8414 germino club 40 ss 06102018 http://www.primeguitars.com/product/2018-germino-club-40/ Amps Gemino Club 40 w Solid State Rectifier 2018 $1799 Black For Sale Excellent No-Specs available Savings alert here!   Germino Club 40 that has a build date (sticker inside) of April 2018.  One owner from a non-smoking home.  It was one-of-3 custom made for my customer &amp; dear friend.  Of course he couldn't resist a choice guitar in my stash so he kindly sent this to me days after he received it. This has a SOLID STATE recitifer (sorry, not switchable).  It does NOT have a Master Vol.  LIterally only has maybe an hour on it....so...using our contextual clues that would mean...YES....YES...the tubes ARE fresh..and they ARE original.  LOL I can't find a mark on it but grade it as Excellent to protect myself from the electron microscope post purchase inquisition.
