0 - New! The G&L Espada - Order Deposit

Just released at the 2019 NAMM show is the all-new G&L Espada. This guitar follows the recently discovered plans of a guitar that Leo Fender designed back around 1969. With a sexy new shape, new split coil pickups and active/passive electronics, the Espada is not a re-hash of anything. This guitar is a great look into the mind of Leo Fender and where he was heading with guitar development.

The Espada will soon enter the build process and UpFront Guitars will receive some of the first production examples. Place your deposit now for a Natural Ash or Alder Sunburst. Expected MAP with hardshell case is $1999.

1962 Gibson ES-350T Tobacco Sunburst USED
1962 Gibson ES-350T Tobacco Sunburst USED

Collector Alert - Here is a 1962 Gibson ES-350T in classic Tobacco Sunburst. This beauty hails from the original Gibson factory in Kalamazoo and is still singing like a bird after a few decades of work. All and all this guitar is still in great shape and after a thorough setup it performed beautifully. The Curly Maple body still looks like a million bucks, the Rosewood fretboard has stood strong and a fret dress left only one visible line of fretwear. The tone is to die for thanks to a set of Gibson PAF humbuckers made just 5 years after the humbucker was invented on the same factory floor. Made the year before the line was discontinued for more than a decade, this Florentine cutaway ES is a real piece of history so don't miss your chance to get a relic that's still ready for years of playing.

Wear includes some neck finish, minor finish scuffs, a few spots of minor fretwear, weathered ivory neck binding, chip in one of the inlays and replacement tuners. All documented in photos. Comes with original hardshell case and paperwork.

2001 Fender American Vintage '62 Reissue Stratocaster USED
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.
