Mint, 10 month old, very low mileage Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue PR 246 in tweed.  The footswitch is still shrink wrapped!



Perhaps you had a chance to see these Stonewall Pickups Tonecasters at Scott Millers open house in September or at the Northeast Guitar Expo a couple of weeks ago.  They are now available to buy right here.  We have the Tonecaster T, S & J models, all custom built with alder & swamp ash, Stonewall Pick-ups and high quality hardware.  The first customer to try them said, "there's nothing coming out of Fender as good as these"!

T is $1600        S is $1700        J is $1800


Nearly New Fender '52 Hot Rod Tele Reissue.  Basically a very nice "52 clone with a Seymour Duncan mini Humbucker at the neck.  Comes with case candy too!



1995 PRS Custom 24 in Vintage Yellow.  This one has a story....briefly, it was a Guitar Player Giveaway, back in the day, it has some case candy and a few notes of interest under the pick-ups.  It set up perfectly, looks "nearly new" and resonates loudly.


Godin A12 electric semi-hollow 12 String ....Godin's entry in the very small group of electric 12 string guitars.  A chambered maple body and solid cedar top provide the rich tone thru the custom under saddle pick-up with volume & 3 tone controls.  Tres bon all around!



Scott, at Stonewall Pick-ups, has started pre loading & wiring some of his most popular pick-up sets onto WD pickguards.  We have the Signature Strat set ($450) & the Founders Strat set ($425).  Both loaded pickguards are put together using 250k CTS pots, an Oak Grigsby 5 way switch, and .022u orange drop capacitors. The wire is cloth covered 22g pre tinned wire. The tone circuit is modified to work on the bridge pickup as well.


And, just got the Electric Lady Strat set...fully loaded and ready to go for $425 and Scotts latest, the Lipstick Strat Set which is $450.  (specs as above for both)







Back in black, a Godin A6 Ultra.  Featuring a chambered maple body with solid cedar top, chrome covered humbucker & custom undersaddle pick-up....with master volume, blend and separate tone controls....kinda does it all!


Vintage, made in USA, practice amp with tremolo...a Sano GS10 of course.


A beautiful, 4 month old, 2016 Fender American Professional Jazz Bass in Sonic Grey.  Includes the original hard shell case just full of case candy!


Traveler Ultra Light, umm, travel guitar.  This one has a piezo undersaddle pick-up as well as the lap bracket, instructions and gig bag...looks like new too!







A Carvin DC 747 7-String Guitar from 2007 or so.  Neck thru body & strings thru body too!  Sperzel tuners, 2-way coil cutting for both humbuckers and a very nice HSC.


An extremely nice 2003 Martin HD28 LSV (Large Soundhole Vintage) with K&K Pick-up, new compensated saddle (by Jack O"Brien) and the original hard shell case.  Looking for "Martin" tone and volume?....here it is!








Hercules GS414B Locking Guitar Stands back in stock.



Like new Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 1X12 Enclosure.




Marshall Lead 15 Micro Stack has become the practical stack.



Pretty nice, set neck, Jay Turser JT-220 in VG++++ condition.






Looking for the perfect small speaker cab for your perfect little tube amp?  Could be this Mesa Boogie 1X12 Thiele with an EVM 12L speaker, nice white tolex and leather corners.





Yes, it's true, the infamous Bass Banjo is back.  Handmade by Mike Endicott about 15 years ago it is one of the only known examples in existence.


Nicely done Home-made Lap Steel & case.  Duncan Rail HB pick-up, steel, picks & some strings included.





A nice Takamine EG-335SC cutaway acou/elec 12 String.






Small, not light, powerful & versatile Peavey Special 150....a whole lotta amp for









Looking for a nylon string acou/elec guitar with a narrow neck?  This Ovation 4861 was strung with nylon strings and it works!!









1997 Fender Strat Plus Deluxe in Inca Silver.  Very clean, very good playing & sounding Strat.  Pick-ups are Fender Custom Shop, pickguard has been changed otherwise original.
