Fender Squier Jagmaster MIJ Electric Guitar

Fender Squier Jagmaster MIJ Electric Guitar

With all respect to Aerosmith, here’s a “schoolgirl sweetie with a classy kinda sassy,” a Fender Squire Jagmaster MIJ Electric Guitar. This little geisha has been played and not treated with kid gloves. She’s got dings, chips—hell, a chunk—taken out of her. It doesn’t feel like abuse to me, though. More like extreme use. She comes without a case. I shudder to think what happened to it. Yet despite all the cosmetic issues, seller says she plays…

Guild B-301Bass Electric Guitar

Guild B-301Bass Electric Guitar

My, oh my. Is this a 1979 Guild B-301A Bass Electric Guitar I see? It’s been a long time, friend. Isn’t she something? Made in the USA. In terrific shape and mostly all original (Seller says the bottom inlay on her headstock has been replaced. I think seller is talking about the truss rod cover plate.) Don’t you just love her naughty body with her axe-like lower bout? Isn’t that pickguard cool? How can you…

Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar

Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar

I’ve always had a thing about Angus Young, doing that chicken leg stomp and strut across the stage in his schoolboy knickers, Gibson SG leading the way. Much like this 15 year-old Gibson SG Standard Electric Guitar I’m writing about now. Angus’s act is so weird, so raw. You cannot look away, or at least I can’t. Nor can I can keep my eyes off the cherry red SG, thrusting out like a sword as the…

Three Inexpensive Father’s Day Gifts for Guitar Playing Dads

So let’s be real and suggest a handful of things that any guitar playing Dad will be happy to unwrap instead golf balls and socks. And in this case, all cost less than the guitar tuning peg on a Les Paul goldtop. 1. Wear your Fender amp allegiance loud and…

Checkmate Electric Guitar

Checkmate Electric Guitar

Here’s an interesting little number, a Japanese Checkmate Electric Guitar that seller says was made in the hip happening ’60s by Teisco. How seller knows the Teisco heritage goes unsaid. Seller says she’s in excellent condition (with expected nicks and such) and mostly original. She also comes with a cool case. But… Don’t you just hate big smelly buts? Here they are: seller says the tremolo bar is not original and one switch was painted…

Alvarez DY75 Kazuo Yairi Acoustic Guitar

Alvarez DY75 Kazuo Yairi Acoustic Guitar

Here’s how our seller starts his pitch about this Japanese Alvarez DY75 Kazuo Yairi Acoustic Guitar: “They say, never sell your best guitar.  I know I will be sorry, but the winner will be very happy.” He has a good reason for parting ways with her. She’s not being played. And with a gem like this, that’s a crime. Seller says he is the second owner. Seller says it was her AAA top with its medullary rays, her superb…

Collings OM2H HRA Acoustic Guitar

She starts off with a custom Adirondack Spruce top in an OM size….
