Hofner 500/1 Electric Bass Guitar

Get ready to channel your inner Paul McCartney with this Hofner 500/1 Electric Bass Guitar from 1963. This lovely lady comes from Germany and she was born the same year the Beatles really hit it big in England and America. Seller reports she’s in excellent physical condition for her age and sounds great. Her sunburst finish is almost pristine with the exception of tiny wear mark where a thumb would rest. Check the second photo below. This…

Mako LS-3 Electric Guitar

Mako LS-3 Electric Guitar

Say hello to a nice Strat style MIJ model from the 1980s, a Mako LS-3 Electric Guitar. She’s in pretty good shape for being 31 years old but she does have her share of nicks, cuts and bruises that the photos capture well. Seller says she has an “excellent neck, nice feel and little fret wear.” Her pickups perform as expected and sound good but seller reports some scratchiness with the 5-way switch and the volume…

Ribbecke Halfling Electric Guitar

Ribbecke Halfling Electric Guitar

I love discovering new things and finding this Ribbecke Halfling Electric Guitar is no exception. Let’s start with her name, Halfling. It describes her perfectly—she’s an arch top on the treble side and a flat top on the bass side. Her design is patented. Why? Her maker, a guy named Tom Ribbecke, wanted to build a guitar that balanced treble and mid ranges with the bass. Typical arch tops favor the treble side as they were built to…

Rickenbacker 330/12 Electric Guitar

Rickenbacker 330/12 Electric Guitar

Every Rickenbacker I see brings Tom Petty and his signature sound instantly to mind. This American-made Rickenbacker 330/12 Electric Guitar is no exception. This Mapleglo natural finish 12-string beauty from 2008 is semi hollow and that extra resonance is doubtless captured by her dual pickups. Be sure to check our her slotted, striped headstock—pretty! She shows minimal play wear and is in very good cosmetic condition. Seller writes she’s been restrung professionally and set up to…

Ibanez S470FM Electric Guitar

Ibanez S470FM Electric Guitar

Here’s a tigeress ready for a new jungle to prowl, an Ibanez S470FM Electric Guitar. She’s made in Korea with a lovely green striped finish. Seller doesn’t say much about her other than her gold hardware has faded some, she’s missing a whammy bar and she has dings and dangs all over that are well documented in the photos. So if you want to know her specifics—when she was made, of what, type of pickup, etc….

Fender Jazz Bass Guitar

Fender Jazz Bass Guitar

Put a diaper on me, I just may wet myself. Take a gander at this ONE OWNER all original Fender Jazz Bass Guitar from 1965 plus her original hardshell case. As seller says, it’s one of “THOSE stories.” An older gentleman brought the guitar into seller’s shop and he had been her sole owner and player. She’s all original with most of the pre-CBS features—transition logo, pearl dots, no binding and early tuners. Even her pot dates…

G&L JB-2 Electric Bass Guitar

G&L JB-2 Electric Bass Guitar

I’ve always been partial to G&L instruments having played an ASAT for years. I like the vibe of this G&L JB-2 Electric Bass Guitar. For those who don’t know, G&L stands for the legendary George Fullerton and Leo Fender and is the guitar company they started after selling Fender Guitars to CBS in the 60s. She’s an original—not part of the “Tribute” series—so she’s made in America with a fun transparent orange finish (which sometimes looks red…

Fender Musicmaster Electric Bass Guitar

Fender Musicmaster Electric Bass Guitar

Every once and a while I see something that presses my mental pause button. This Fender Musicmaster Electric Bass Guitar just hit it big time. Why? She’s been tinkered with and she presents you with the choice to keep and play her as is, restore her or just collect and admire her. Seller writes she was made in America in 1976 (our nation’s bicentennial—very patriotic) with a 30″ scale and a Rosewood fretboard. She’s got some play…

Matchless Lightning Combo Amp

Matchless Lightning Combo Amp

They say lightning never strikes twice in the same place. I respectfully disagree, and this American-made Matchless Lightning Combo Amp proves my point. This beauty is a beast. She works every bit of her 15 watts and seller says she can get LOUD fast. As seller points out, her interactive tone controls “influence each other in a very dynamic way and pull each other’s range and reach up and down.” I think that’s a fancy way…

EVH 5150 III Amplifier

EVH 5150 III Amplifier

Give it up for this EVH 5150 III Amplifier, a cool ivory kitty if ever there was one. She puts 50 watts of power across three channels at your fingertips. Her photo tells the story quite clearly. Seller says she’s in mint condition (despite being used) and comes in her original packaging with a power cord and an EVH footswitch. Beyond that, seller says squat but if you have questions it never hurts to ask. Will…
