1967 Vox AC50 - Original 50 Watt Head - USED
1967 Vox AC50 - Original 50 Watt Head - USED

Collector Alert - Here is a true 1967 Vox AC50 head that has been meticulously dated and cleaned by amp tech Stan Day. It is completely original with exception of fresh tubes and is in perfect working order. We got this on consignment from our good friend, demo guru and Berklee College of Music Professor Scott Tarulli. After years of acclaimed guitar work on the pro circuit he has amassed a collection that's closing in the walls of his studio so he's reluctantly making room by letting this piece of history find a new home. Whether you're a serious Vox collector, a studio looking for something to draw in clients, or a working musician that needs the real deal, don't miss your chance to grab this one.

For those with the 5-string fever, we bring you a top-notch condition G&L L-1505.

B&G Guitars Little Sister Crossroads Tobacco Sunburst USED
B&G Guitars Little Sister Crossroads Tobacco Sunburst USED

Here is a unique piece recently added to our stable: The Little Sister Crossroads by B&G Guitars. Based in Israel, B&G has made waves in the boutique market for crafting their guitars with worldclass tonewoods and hand-wound pickups with premium electronics. While these guitars were clearly something special, the average price kept them out of reach for many players. Enter the Crossroads: The same Little Sister model that could easily cost up to $5000, at a new competitive price and quick availability thanks to carefully selected outside builders. If you're looking for a vintage voiced guitar that won't break the bank, don't pass this up. 

We acquired this piece from the original owner who used it, but certainly didn't abuse it. It has some typical pickup tarnish, swirling on the back but there are no scratches, dings and most importantly, no fretwear. Comes with original B&G soft case.

Digitech Crossroads Eric Clapton Signature Pedal USED
Digitech Crossroads Eric Clapton Signature Pedal USED

The Digitech Crossroads Pedal is a modeling box designed to give you access to 7 of Eric Clapton's most coveted tones. Each preset can be tweaked with the Level knob and two controls. Get everything from the rotating Leslie speaker from "Badge" to the unplugged sound of "Layla". If you are a fan of Eric Clapton, this delivers all the inspiration you'll need.

This is a used pedal that was not used much. There are no physical issues aside from a single paint chip and it works perfectly. It will come in the original box (with usual wear and tear that comes with basement storage) but we no longer have the matching power supply.
