1984 MIJ Squier Stratocaster in Camasrillo CA for $275

Here is a seller offering a 1984 Squier Strat that has a big headstock, 3-bolt neck and bullet truss rod just like the 1970's era guitars.  This is from the period when FMIC had been purchased by the employees and they didn't have the Corona plant up and running yet so Japan production was a big part of their business.  I've owned a  few Japanese Fender Strats from this period and they can be pretty nice - especially the necks.    Note that this is not a JV Squier (Japanese Vintage series).  

The hardware and wiring is usually hit or miss so it helps to look at them carefully - edxpecailly things like the saddles, the bridges and the biggest culprits are the VOL and tone pots.  However, as we all know - those items are fairly easily replaced.   I see MIJ Squiers going for quite a bit more than this on eBay.  Some sellers are even asking this much money for just a neck.  Either way might be worth checking this out.

condition: good
I got this Bass guitar at an estate sale. I am most positive that this is a bass guitar from the 60s. based upon the style of the pickup and body shape. I'm guessing it is similar to a Japanese brand guitar. might be japanese. Either way it's a really cool vintage bass and with some new strings and fine tuning this bass guitar will stand out.


only asking for $80.00

Airline 1960's Tube Combo Amp in North Hollywood for $300 - Model 62-9013

This seller is offering one of my favorite vintage tube amps - an Airline 62-9013 for only $300 - he says it still has the original tubes (which I don't doubt because so does mine).

These are great little amps with a single 12 inch speaker and pair of 6V6GT output tubes for about 15 watts. My favorite thing about these  Danelectro built amps is that you can jump the inputs and get serious Crunch without having to use a pedal.  Great amp for a great price.

Silvertone Danelectro U-1 in twin Falls, ID for $375 w Orig case

This seller is offering a 50+ year old Silvertone U-1 made by Danelectro. This one looks mostly original save the Vol and Tone control knobs which can be found and replaced if you are so inclined.  That said, the value of these old Danelectro's is not so much in their 100% original condition (unlike a Fender or Gibson) but in their playability and tone if they have been maintained well over the years.  People don't hang Danelectro's on their wall to admire - they play 'em, sometimes damned hard!  I've seen several Indie and Alt Country guitarists over the years grab one of these U-1's off a stand and unleash monster licks wit a slide.

condition: good
For sale is a late 1950s Silvertone Guitar made by Danelectro, U1 guitar. These guitar are becoming more and more difficult to find, especially ones in good, playable shape. This specific guitar is (in my opinion) perfectly aged, showing some gorgeous wear from a life of playing, but still in great working shape. Great jazz or blues guitar (it makes a stellar slide guitar). Tone & Volume pots have been professionally cleaned up and work with no glitches, playing through the single lipstick pickup. Original hardshell case comes with it, including the original cord sold with these guitars and a vintage tuner. A true piece of American music history.

2001 USA Fender Deluxe Stratocaster in Muncie, IN for $500

This seller is offering what appears to me to be a 2001 Fender Deluxe Stratocaster. The difference between the Deluxe model and the "American Standard" model in 2001 was the abalone fret dot inlays (which you can see clearly in his photos) and Sperzel locking tuners as well as SCN or "virtual noiseless pickups."  The Deluxes also have a more carefully machined fretboard that includes rolled edges on the frets that give it a nice broken in smooth playing feel - something most vintage gear players look for in a guitar. 

Not everyone is a fan of the SCN pickups - most vintage gear players embrace the buzz and hum of an old single coil since it lets the pickup breathe and respond instantly to subtle changes in the magnetic fields.  But this is purely a matter of personal taste.   Many professionals can't stand any kind of buzz of hum in a guitar.

Beautiful Vintage Guitar or Harp tube amp in Lubbock TX for $225

This seller is clearly an expert and has posted a meticulous listing for this absolutely stunning vintage tube amp and speaker cabinet.  These Bell & Howell Filmosound tube amps are considered by some to be the "cream of the crop" as far as build quality and components. In fact the tube complement, including the original British made 12AX7 Mullard tubes in this amp are worth a considerable small fortune on their own - let alone the rest of the perfectly matched and preserved ensemble.  If you are anywhere near Lubbock TX and are looking for a nifty vintage tube combo with some serious MOJO, I recommend you check this listing out.

1950s B&H Tube Guitar Harp Amp And Jensen Speaker - $225 (Lubbock)


image 1image 2image 3image 4

condition: excellent

For sale is an early 1950s Bell and Howell Filmosound 15 watt all tube amplifier featuring point to point wiring and 6V6 push pull circuitry and a matching B&H Speaker cabinet with original Jensen 12" speaker in amazing original condition. This classic combination includes the very low hour amplifier extensively and professionally bench tested in pristine original condition with no corrosion or damage of any kind. The hand wired circuitry is all original with only the photo electronic tube used in the original projector application removed for optimization in use as a guitar microphone or instrument amp. The premium tube compliment is all original B&H silkscreened logo tubes including two 6V6 output pentodes (with a third for screen voltage regulation) the original RCA 5Y3 rectifier and 5879 dual element tube for voltage gain and two matched B&H British Mullard 12AX7 dual triodes for the Class A front end and driver stages. This amp can drive both 8 and 16 ohm speaker cabs with plenty of clean power wide range tone control and superb crunch when overdriven. I am an old retired recording studio service calibration tech and can assure that the original circuitry including capacitors resistors and wiring has never required repair of any kind and the amp has not been unnecessarily tweaked modified or otherwise altered by unskilled tube amp Guru wannabees. The very rare early generation Tombstone Deco speaker cabinet has the original white and burgundy felt B&H logo and grill in pristine condition with the inner matching felt lining to the entire cab equally clean and nice. The hinged back of the cab allows access to cable storage and is tight with no unwanted vibration issues when used at full volume. The original Jensen P12 Alnico 25 watt rated 16 ohm speaker is in mint condition with complete B&H labeling and tan paint scheme to the frame and bell housing with the date code showing it was manufactured the 9th week of 1952. The cone voice coil and spyder assembly are perfect and the original B&H dedicated terminals are provided with a standard 1/4 inch phone jack lead to allow use of this cab with other tube amps. The only cosmetic issue is the expected scuffs to the outer two-tone gray paint of the cab which was the result of storage at times without the included original B&H logo heavy quilted and padded cloth cover. 60+ years young and going strong this is a rare local opportunity to acquire an authentic Boutique amp from the Golden era. For the guitar player or blues harpist desiring this unique combo I am asking $225 CASH. This price is cash only and firm. Please be patient and I'll try to answer email as quickly as possible. Thank you. If this ad is still listed then it is still available so please don't email asking if it is still available.
