Gibson Starburst Acoustic Guitar

Gibson Starburst Acoustic Guitar

When you talk about an eye-catcher I hope this Gibson Starburst Acoustic Guitar shoots to the top of the list. She was custom made in her entirety by Jeff Bergman at the Gibson Bozeman, Montana factory in 1992. Seller doesn’t say but I’m pretty sure that’s flamed Maple on her top but to be totally confident, ask seller. They weren’t kidding when they named her a Starburst. Aside from being a star in her own right, you’ll…

Composite Acoustics OX RAW Acoustic Guitar

Composite Acoustics OX RAW Acoustic Guitar

Just as there is more than one way to skin a banana, there is more than one way to build a guitar than with wood. This gently used Composite Acoustics OX RAW Acoustic Guitar proves the point perfectly. She’s made of carbon fiber (seller doesn’t say when or where) and the advantage of that is she does not respond to environmental factors such as heat, humidity or aridity as a wood instrument most definitely will. That means you don’t…

Morgan Monroe MV-01C Acoustic Guitar

Morgan Monroe MV-01C Acoustic Guitar

This Morgan Monroe MV-01C Acoustic Guitar called out to me through my computer display glass in a clear, sweet voice. I just had to listen to her story. She was made in China (seller doesn’t say when) and is a 00 body type; seller calls her a parlor and that label seems appropriate. Seller writes she has a “nice low action and plays easily.” Her solid spruce top gives her a “full warm tone, surprising for…

Kay Jazz Special Electric Bass Guitar

Kay Jazz Special Electric Bass Guitar

Good gravy, it’s a blond Kay Jazz Special Electric Bass Guitar from 1957. (I wish I could tell you where she was made but I don’t know. Ask seller.) Seller writes this is the same model guitar Paul McCartney used on his Wings tour in the 70s, only his axe was black. Seller notes the blond models are much harder to find, going so far as to call it a “holy grail” model. So you got that…

Silvertone Bobcat Electric Guitar

Silvertone Bobcat Electric Guitar

I used to love to watch Tennessee Tuxedo and his Tales on Saturday mornings with Don Adams of Get Smart fame doing his crazy voice overs. I’ve been partial to penguins ever since. So, naturally, this classic tuxedo Silvertone Bobcat Electric Guitar would appeal to me. She’s from the 60s (seller doesn’t say where she was made), all original and in good working order. Seller writes “everything is straight and tight. Excellent player with that classic Dearmond pickup…

Schaefer Electric Bass Guitar

Schaefer Electric Bass Guitar

The pickguard on this Schaefer Electric Bass Guitar reached out and grabbed my attention by the throat. Granted, it’s a small detail but it takes a fairly run of the mill bass and steps it up a notch. Seller has this listed as a Teisco/Schaefer. I think that means Teisco made it in Japan and branded her as a Schaefer. She’s from the 60s. Seller writes she’s fully functional and totally set up with all 19 of…

Charvel Jake E. Lee Signature Electric Guitar

Charvel Jake E. Lee Signature Electric Guitar

Mmmmm, this is one tasty kitty, a made in America Charvel Jake E. Lee Signature Electric Guitar. She’s all top shelf, starting with the lavender-hued Pearl White finish on her body and headstock. She rocks an Ash body in the classic So-Cal shape and a quarter sawn Maple neck with a 12″ to 16″ compounded Rosewood fingerboard sporting 21 medium jumbo frets.  (Pssst. Don’t you just love her black Gotoh tuners with pearl buttons?) As far as…

Gibson SG Standard Deluxe Electric Guitar

Gibson SG Standard Deluxe Electric Guitar

I love color. And I sure as hell love the custom color of this Gibson SG Standard Deluxe Electric Guitar. It’s both serene and exciting at the same time. A color oxymoron as it were. (Or maybe I’m just a moron.) Seller calls it “custom color phelam (sic, I think he means Pelham) blue green teal” which is a long way around the barn to say striking. She looks just fine as far as the rest…

Harmony Hondo H732 Electric Guitar

Harmony Hondo H732 Electric Guitar

It’s practically impossible to dislike anything named Hondo and this Harmony Hondo H732 Electric Guitar is no exception. Seller says she was made in the 80s but doesn’t say where. She’s crafted in the Les Paul style and she’s got a nice dependable look about her. Seller says she’s in very good condition and all her knobs, switches and such work just fine. She’s got her share of scars and dings but they’re typical of a…
