1960’s Telestar Bass MIJ
You’ve always wanted this bass, you just didn’t know it until now. Everyone who comes within 10 feet gets a contact high off this thing. Plug it in and you’re done-for. Fall under its funky spell, wholesale seduced buy its curves and round tone.
1960’s Regal Hollowbody
We can’t find a model number or name for this beauty, but this Harmony-built Regal is a great piece of guitar history and a fine instrument. We acquired it along with a number of other pieces from the personal collection of one of the main guitar designers for Harmony in the 50’s and 60’s. We’ve not seen another like this one, so it may have a one-off sample or personally customized guitar. Tons of amazing details like the “bow-tie” fingerboard inlays, cool headstock shape, custom made truss cover and switch plate, and the multi-layered binding really ties everything together great. It has an angled neck pocket so the action is good with plenty of room to adjust the bridge to personal taste. Great playing chunky neck. The DeArmond pickups sound killer both with your amp clean and when you crank it up to 10. One of the pole pieces broke off but there is no audible drop-off in volume in relation to the other strings. Otherwise it’s in really good shape for its age with normal paint wear and some play time on the frets. We hope to find it good home with someone who will love it as much as we do.
Vintage 1960’s Vox V269 Starstream
Nothing oozes cool like Vox’s Starstream; it’s their iconic tear-drop shape done all up with a bunch of electronics, including one of the most gnarly fuzz tones of all-time, and a built in lever-controlled wah-wah! This one came and went pretty quick. Be on the look-out for it on tour with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers!!!! For real!!!
Gotta give it up for one of the most iconic pedals out there… the Big Muff! You can dial in such a wide variety of tones with this fuzz that you find players of all genres using them. We’ve got an amazing vintage one in our shop right now, plus a ton great sounding boutique variations. Some of our favorites include: The Pharaoh Fuzz from Black Arts Tone Works, The Supercollider from Earthbound Audio, The Tri-Ram from Basic Audio, The Hoof from Earthquaker Devices, The Grey Stache from Fuzzrocious, and The Tall Font Russian from Wren & Cuff.
1981 Gibson Flying V White
Nothing oozes cool like a V. One of the world’s first “pointy” guitars is also the most elegant, thanks to an economy of design. It’s perhaps the ultimate evolution of the solidbody form too: an electric guitar can look like anything. While not accepted in it’s original era, it was perfectly suited for and became one of the iconic symbols of the 70’s and 80’s. We are happy to report this vintage axe has come through the years wholly intact. No mods, no breaks, no repairs. It’s a survivor.
1964 Guild Thunderbird
A cool guitar is a cool guitar, no matter what you do to it. Case in point, this amazing old Guild Thunderbird. It’s been stripped and had it’s bridge pickup changed out, but it’s still a monster of a guitar. The design is super ergonomically friendly, it really becomes an extension of your body. It might be blasphemous to say, but it might look even better stripped like this than the original gloss cherry finish. If the body wasn’t bizarre enough, the headstock is a thing of inspiration, only found on the Thunderbird and Polara.
