Nice Kay Hollow Body Electric in Nashville for $250

The seller says this needs a truss rod adjustment and this may be one of the old style "threaded" trussrods that you turn bin inserting a bolt and using a wrench - either way this one looks to be in nice shape and all original - that's a big plus.

Very cool Kay guitar. Oven pan pickups sounds amazing, tuners turn perfect stays in tune great great slide guitar. Nice fat neck, no cracks or breaks, has higher action on the high frets but it has a truss rod and can be adjusted but the tool it uses is weird and i can find anything that will turn it. $250 OBO or trade for any kind of sears or department guitar or amps

Vintage Teisco EP-9T Semi Archtop $125 Highland Park

A beautiful guitar, made in Japan. Electronics work fabulous, nice tone and surprisingly quiet for a Teisco.

There is a slight bow in the neck but it was professionally setup at Eric's Guitar so it was adjusted and plays great.

Fender Yale Reverb SS amp in Boise for $100

I am a big Paul Riera fan and he did a great job on these little Solid State Fender amps too - he loved the "Fender Sound" and had a great ear and understood how to balance Gain and Volume to maximize tone - these Yale's are little beasts with 50 watts and a 12" speaker and the Spring Reverb pans sound terrific.

Fender '65 Mustang RI w HSC in Akron for $400

This seller obviously doesn't know the guitar he is selling - he is calling it a 69 RI Competition but it is clearly a 65 Reissue and of course there is no racing stripe - but $400 is a decent price on these (I love mine) and this one is a cool color with a great looking tortoise guard too.

Two Vintage 1960's Teisco Del Ray Electric Guitars (Herndon)
Date: 2009-07-22, 3:19PM EDTReply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]
Here are two vintage 1960's Japanese made Teisco guitars. The red sunburst guitar is a full size electric with two pickups, individual pickup selector switches, boost switch, two volume/one tone controls, tremolo bridge that works (no arm included), height adjustable bridge and a chrome metal pickguard. Condition: lots of smaller dings/chips/marks, etc, typical for an almost 40 year old guitar. This one looks to be all original, but I did install a new input jack as the original was useless. Asking $175. The cream colored guitar is a smaller, short-scale guitar. One pickup, single volume and tone controls, small slider switch (simple on/off function), red tortoise pickguard, height adjustable bridge and a tremolo tailpiece (does not work, but may be fixable). All original with the exception of a new nut and new set of tuners that were recently installed. Condition: ditto the first guitar, also has some scribbling on the back that won't come off. Asking $95. Both guitars work, are clean, play well enough, sound pretty cool and have new strings. These old Teiscos have very distinctive sounding and sought-after pickups - legendary guitarist Ry Cooder has been known for buying up these old Japanese guitars just for the pickups! They make great slide guitars. A great pair for the Teisco collector. Cash/local sale only. If this ad is still up, they are still available.

Date: 2009-07-22, 10:19PM EDTReply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]
Late 60's Univox U45 amp. Most of the U45's had their control panel on the top of the cabinet, and this is quite rare with the front facing control panel. Volume, Tone and Tremelo controls. Trem works but needs a footswitch which I no longer have. about 10 watts into a 12" speaker. Crunches up when turned up. I had it recapped about 3 years ago and its basically been sitting ever since. These are rare, and very cool amps. Thanks. You can contact me @ (248)259-0757 or email me @ My name is Trevor

1970's Earth Sound '55 Twin Revival Tweed Tube amp- $400 near Albany NY

I 've never seen one of thesebefore-it is basically a copy of an old Tweed Twinby Earth Sound - al hand wired with 4 6L6's and nice Tweed cover. No ida what this sounds like but should be at least as good as a Peavey Classsic 50 - and it looks very cool

I am selling an early 1970's Earth Sound Research 1955 Twin Revival tube amp. It's is powered by 4X6L6's and is all handwired. It is modeled after the 1955 Fender Twin. It is in excellent condition and sounds awesome. The spring reverb will probably need to be rewired. There is a small cigarette burn on the top left corner of the tolex, maybe an inch. Other than that its all good. I have it only setup with two 6L6's currently. Give me a call with any questions. 702-4135 Jeremy

Gibbs Tube PA Head in Green Bay for - $$??

Check out the old coke bottle 6L6 tubes and head-tapped preamp tubes in this old PA Head - and it is soooo clean. This wouldprobably make a monster Harp amp for sure. I neverknew that Gibbs even made PA heads - they are mostly known for making Reverb pans.

Reply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]Date: 2009-07-07, 12:26PM CDT
This is a really neat amp! I am guessing it is for an old PA system. It works, and all the tubes glow. It would make an awesome project for a guitar head. I am open to a fair cash offer or a cool trade of some sort. I am guessing it puts out about 50 watts. I have tried to research it, but can't find any info.

Harmony h400a vintage tube amp - $80 (St. Charles)
Date: 2009-07-23, 1:00AM CDTReply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]
I have a harmony h400a tube amp that I just got and do not want. It has all 3 original tubes in it but one is blown and needs replacing (I have a new set of tubes but it is a 30 dollar set if you want them) It is about 5 watts tube. The only problem with this is there is a loud noise that comes from the amp when it is turned on, you can barely hear the guitar when it is at full volume. I don't know what is wrong with it. Thus why I am selling it. It could just be a simple fix inside the amp with fuses or a bad solder point. I have no experience with this and I don't want to break it so I am going to sell it to someone else who wants it and will want to mess with it. I don't know what is exactly wrong with it. Just what the internet has told me. Has 3 inputs. Volume and Tone knob. Apparently these things sound beautiful. If interested email me. 80 dollars OR BEST OFFER (no low ballers though)

Cool old Prestige (rebadged teisco? has the 'gold foil' pickup). Short scale, 20 frets. Works a-ok. Cool to play around with and have around, I'm moving or I would keep it. Record that gross garage rock guitar sound or pretend like you are a giant that is dwarfing a normal size guitar.... or it would be a great manageable size for younger smaller folx. $40 cash picks it up in squirrel hill.

This is a REGAL lap steel guitar made in Chicago probably in the 1950s. The amp is a tube type CUSTOM CRAFT made in 1963. It's not a real powerful amp, maybe 10 watts, It has a rectifier tube and then 3 other ones. 3 inputs, and a foot switch input. I put a new set of flat wound strings on it and tuned it. I'm not much of a player but it sounds good to me. Will trade for an old beat-up motorcycle, any size, just about any condition as long as it has a title. or the firm $150.00. Dan 432-5488

This guy is selling off all of his lap steel and gear including a 1948 Rickenbacker ACE and a 1792 Fender VibroChamp - the ACE is a student model but would be very desireable if it has the "horshe" pickup that they also used on the Academy models in the 1940's.

1970's Guild M45 Bluesbird in Boise for $400

I don't know why the seller is describing this as a 1959 Guild - it is clerly an early 1970's Bluesbird. This is the M75GS meaning Gold Hardware - and it is most likely a 1973 because it has the phase switch (added in 1972) and the longer distance stop tailpiece (shortened in 1973). So this a rather rare version of this made in Rhode Island USA guitar. The pickups on these are supposed to sound pretty sweet - though these vintage spec guitars never really caught on in the high gain era - very well made American quality - don' confuse this with the bevy of M75's no being made in China - thisis a real USA Guild.
