All right all you Sonic Youth fans, here’s your chance to acquire a made in Mexico Fender Jazzmaster Thurston Moore Signature Electric Guitar for your very own.

BC Rico Mockingbird Electric Guitar

BC Rico Mockingbird Electric Guitar

Well butter my sides and call me a biscuit, what a lovely ’80s vintage BC Rico Mockingbird Electric Guitar from Japan. Seller posts many snaps of this beauty but you’ll need to go look at the link to see them. They’re not formatted in a friendly way to share. Seller says her neck is straight, her action is is low and her frets have plenty of life. Yes, she has the usual nicks and such but in…

Epiphone G-400 Electric Guitar

Epiphone G-400 Electric Guitar

Here’s a pretty little kitty from ’66, an Epiphone G-400 Electric Guitar that definitely brings her cousin, the Gibson SG, to mind. Seller says this is a limited edition with some “subtle-but-significant” differences: a) it’s finished in “true heritage cherry”; b) it has a fuller pickguard instead of the “lower horn only” variety; c) the bigger pickguard means there aren’t any mounting rings around the Alnico Humbucker that came with her. Seller says he’s replaced…

Larrivee OM-05E Acoustic Guitar

Larrivee OM-05E Acoustic Guitar

Here’s a work of art you play, a Larrivee OM-05E Acoustic Guitar. Seller is a little sparse on some key details—such as what kind of woods she’s made of and what kind of tuners she has—but her photos give us a lot of information. Besides, if you want to ask seller about her, fire away. Seller says she was bought in 2005, is in very good condition (sure looks that way) and comes with her original hardshell…

Walden D570 Natura Acoustic Guitar

Walden D570 Natura Acoustic Guitar

Here’s a fine guitar for those just starting out, a new Walden D570 Natura Acoustic Guitar that was made in China. I’ve played a few Waldens and always liked them. She’s got a Dreadnought body, which is on the bigger side but comfortably fits many players. She’s also got a Cedar top, Mahogany sides and neck and a Rosewood fingerboard. Seller says she gives you a “nice full round sound” and I believe that. Cedar delivers an earthy tone….

There’s a small finish wear spot above her neck pickup and some fairly modest buckle swirls on her back. Not rashes, just the signs of her player making her soar. And…

Schecter Diamond Series 5-String Bass Electric Guitar

Schecter Diamond Series 5-String Bass Electric Guitar

What we have here appears to be a heavily but respectfully used Schecter Diamond Series 5-String Bass Electric Guitar. Seller says she plays and sounds great but she does have “a little bit of action and the neck seems to have a bend in it.” Seller even takes a picture to try to capture the issue but notes it “makes the action look much worse (than it is?)” If it were me, I’d ask for some…
