1962 Gretsch #6159 Bass, Guitar & Accordion Amplifier!  Has 2 nice old Jensen C120 12" speakers, 2 6L6 power tubes, 4 12AX7 preamp tubes and a 5U4 rectifier tube....that's pretty much the secret sauce!!  BTW, killer tremolo too.





Authentic 1961 Fender Vibrasonic!  Original JBL D130F 15" speaker!!  A few caps and tubes were replaced 20 years ago, otherwise 100%!!!  BIG, FAT tone and unique vibrato too.










A rare and pretty wonderful guitar amp!  The 2010 Louis Electric Tremblelux all tube, handmade in New Jersey, point to point, Celestion G12H, Tremolo, 25 watt tone machine.  It has been discontinued so they are few & far between.







Early 1960s Danelectro Cadet Model 123 all tube (1-power tube, 1-preamp tube & 1- rectifier tube) guitar amp.  Does not have it's original 8" speaker and the filter caps have been replaced.  Innocent looking but impressive sound!



1965 Gibson ES 125 CD (the thick-body version).  Looks to be 100% original, very clean and playing great....oh, and the tone with those dual P-90's is also worth noting.






Just got the first batch of the NEW redesigned Schaller Strap Locks.  They have improved security with improved design from top to bottom!  Our all time favorite strap locks are now even better!!


Very low mileage Carvin DC747 7-String in black







2017 Godin Acousticaster DLX in perfect condition.  You could look it up.








The highly regarded, and sought after, Carvin AG100D acoustic instrument/voice amplifier system.  3 channels, dual DFX, graphic EQ, 12" speaker and tweeter and a few more features.






1999 Godin A4 Bass.  Big, fat bass tones with it's undersaddle pick-up....very loud too!



"Nearly New" Godin Multiac Steel Duet Ambiance.  The GOOD one with a pick-up & microphone, solid spruce top, mahogany body....a rare guitar that comes very close to doing it all!!






The ever-popular Peavey Delta Blues tube guitar amp.  Mom, Dad even the kids will enjoy!!


DEAL-OF-THE-WEEK,  "nearly new", set-up perfectly Ibanez SR406 6-String Bass.  You've probably been wanting to try one?



Another rare piece....a 1992 (only year made) made in Japan Ibanez SB1500 Bass.  Featuring a Bubinga body, ebony fingerboard, EMG P/J Pick-ups and multi lma wenge neck.  This one is in great shape with very good action and no issues....and it's original HSC.




Real deal Marshall JCM2000 Triple Super Lead 60.  Great "Marshall" tone with a few options!






1971 Martin 00-18 rebuilt by Pat DiBurro in 2011, neck reset, new bridge, nut & saddle and crack repairs....now she is ready for another47 years!


Just got a few of the brand new Fishman Neo-D Single Coil acoustic guitar in pick-up with a Woodgrain top.




2000 Epiphone DOT Deluxe....slowly becoming a classic!!



Our old friend Peter Meyer got his hands on this 1960s Harmony Sovereign a couple of years ago.  We all know the potential of this guitar when it is put together correctly which is just what he did.....he reset the neck, refretted it, radiused the fingerboard a bit and made a nice compensated saddle, about $1,000 of work but hey, he loves his job and it is a worthy guitar.








Tranzamp A30 acoustic guitar amp with microphone channel...PA-in-a-box!


Orange Jim Root Terror #4 7 or 15 watt head (w/carry bag) and Orange JR212 #4 2X12" speaker cab, both in "like new" condition.





For those of you not familiar with what we do here at Gary's Guitars, "service" is the word to remember.  Next day guitar repairs, amp and electronic repairs by the end of the week.  A selection of guitars, amps and accessories that we have found to be tried and true, always a friendly ear and words of advice as well as some of the coolest, hard-to find-gear anywhere.  We strive to cover ALL the guitar basses 'cause we are the Seacoasts Guitar Specialists


That's the Gordon Carlisle mural.  I asked Gordon for something bright and, ya know, with a guitar in it.
