Custom Guitar Amplifier Cabinet

Love a project? Here’s an awesome one. Take this, well, whatever it is, strip out its guts and put the amp you’ve always wanted to build in there.

Boaz Clarita Negra Acoustic Guitar

Boaz Clarita Negra Acoustic Guitar

This classical, nylon-stringed Boaz Clarita Negra Acoustic Guitar elevates badass to a whole new dimension. I’m bet she sounds as bold and beautiful as she looks. Seller says she’s from 1999 and may actually be the first of this model. She rocks a clear, powerful and massive tone with a balanced bass. Or, as seller puts it, “the tonal spectrum achieved by the craftsmanship is nothing short of impressive.” Indeed. This lovely lady features a Spruce top…

Guild D-40 Bluegrass Jubilee Acoustic Guitar

Guild D-40 Bluegrass Jubilee Acoustic Guitar

Somewhere a banjo is having nightmares about this Guild D-40 Bluegrass Jubilee Acoustic Guitar. She was born to be a banjo killer—or at least cut through and balance out their tinny twangs. Seller has a long history with this guitar. They got it in 2006, sold it 2011 and took it back in trade in 2013. She’s American made—in Tacoma, Washington to be precise. She’s got the goods—Red Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, and a three-piece Mahogany/Walnut/Mahogany…

Washburn D25S/N Acoustic Guitar

Washburn D25S/N Acoustic Guitar

Every guitar tells a story and the one I get from this Washburn D25S/N Acoustic Guitar is it is has lived a happy life making music. How do I know that? I don’t. But there are a number of clues. Look at the wear patterns on her front and back. See that swirling on the back, the scratches around the sound hole and the pick guard where a pick would come through? Looks like player wear to me….

Hofner 463 S E3 Acoustic Guitar

Hofner 463 S E3 Acoustic Guitar

Most people recognize the tobacco burst Hofner bass played by Paul McCartney in the early days of the Beatles (though he still trots it out from time to time.) Well, that same German company made this lovely lady too, a hollow body Hofner 463 S E3 Acoustic Guitar. She’s from the 60s and has a number of interesting features. The Hofner name, for example, appears three times on her body (tailpiece, decal on upper bass side bout and…

Yamaha CPX-15W Acoustic Guitar

Yamaha CPX-15W Acoustic Guitar

I love the idea behind this lady, a Yamaha CPX-15W Acoustic Guitar. She’s part of the Yamaha Compass series—each point of the four points of a compass has its own unique design. This gal here represents the old American West even though she was made in Japan. That’s why her Spruce top is finished in an antique violin sunburst and her rosette features rugged interlocking lonhghorns. That’s why she has concho belt inlays of pearl and…

Takamine Dolphins LTD2001 Acoustic Guitar

Takamine Dolphins LTD2001 Acoustic Guitar

I’ve always loved dolphins. It might have started with Flipper but I’ve been a fan on them all my life—they are smart, playful and friendly critters. So naturally this Takamine Dolphins LTD2001 Acoustic Guitar appealed to me. This acoustic-electric charmer was made in Japan in 2001 and seller says she’s just been completely set up—oiled, frets dressed, adjusted, etc. Seller writes she’s in excellent condition with two exceptions, a ding on her back and some sort of substance around the…

Yamaha SA-15 Electric Guitar

Yamaha SA-15 Electric Guitar

There’s elegant, there’s simple and there’s elegantly simple. The latter is what I’d call this Yamaha SA-15 Electric Guitar. According to seller, she was produced in 1970 by Yamaha in the Nippon Gakki factory in Japan. Seller rates her in very good “Player Grade” condition, which they define as “Indicates an instrument that may have a vintage or collectible pedigree that has some restoration or changed parts.” Seller doesn’t specify what parts have been restored or changed so you…

Gibson Victory Standard Bass Electric Guitar

Gibson Victory Standard Bass Electric Guitar

Lots of fine guitars are out for a stroll today including this Gibson Victory Standard Bass Electric Guitar. She’s an American girl, born in 1981. Seller notes she’s all solid—no cracks, no wood separation and her only wear is cosmetic from playing. I love her custom-cut genuine tooled leather pick guard. No, it’s not original but it sure looks nice. While we’re on the topic of originality, that applies to her body, neck, bridge, tuners and strap…

Kay Kraft Model A Acoustic Guitar

Kay Kraft Model A Acoustic Guitar

I love stumbling across finds like this one, a Kay Kraft Model A Acoustic Guitar made in Chicago about 1931. There’s a bit to tell about her. She has a Spruce top and Mahogany back, sides and neck. She’s got a gorgeous sunburst lacquer with a classy leaf stencil in gold. Judging from the article seller attaches the stenciling on the pick guard has been mostly worn away. She’s even got a bound top, back and fingerboard….
