2001 Fender American Vintage '62 Reissue Stratocaster USED
Introducing a classic addition to our used selection: The Fender American Vintage '62 Reissue Stratocaster. This series is well known as a pinnacle reissue guitar that offers iconic tone, playability and aesthetic when you don't have $10,000 burning a hole in your pocket. 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 find a new home. If you're looking for a Strat that feels and sounds like the good ol days, don't pass this up.
This guitar has been well loved but aside from bumps and bruises it's in perfect playing shape with no fretwear. Comes with original plush Fender hardshell case.
2012 Fender Custom Shop '52 Telecaster Closet Classic USED
Here's a special treat for collectors and road warriors: The Fender Custom Shop '52 Closet Classic Telecaster. If this looks like it stepped out of a time machine, that's the right idea. This piece from the Fender Custom Shop in Corona California is built to sound, look and feel like the golden age of the Tele and we think they nailed it. From the moderately relic'd Butterscotch Blonde finish to the fat "U" shaped neck, this Tele is au natural and offers truly classic tone with the comfort and reliability of modern craftsmanship. It comes with the original tweed case, hardware, case candy and is in near mint condition. As life long Leo Fender enthusiasts it's refreshing to see a guitar of this caliber brought back to life for today's players.
This guitar is in impeccable shape with virtually no fretwear and no cosmetic defects other than the purposeful relic'd aesthetic. Comes with original tweed Fender hardshell case and all of the original contents.
2016 Gibson Memphis ES les Paul Lemon Burst USED
Collector Alert - Here is an exceptionally clean Gibson ES Les Paul in a gorgeous Transparent Amber Nitro finish. This 2016 model hails from Memphis and gives you best of both the Les Paul and 335 worlds in a slick package with all the fixin's. The center-block semi-hollow designs gives the humbucking pickups a breathe of new life, and with Maple/Poplar/Maple construction this bad boy barely cracks 6 pounds on our digital scale.
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.
