1979 Gretsch Committee in Austin for $650



Not sure what they are going for these days but these Committees were some of the last of the Gretsch USA guitars before that company changed hands - and changed hands again. This "Neck Thru layered Walnut body style" was all the rage for about 10 minutes in the late 70's - inspired by the mighty Alembic basses before being quickly relegated to a slew of import Vantage and Westone guitars. Reminds me of Stanley Jordan's guitar. Sustain should be very nice on this. Though with the original black pickguard missing the aesthetics are up in the air. Still a fairly rare and unique USA made electric with a solid pedigree.

For sale, awesome Vintage Gretsch Committee guitar. I believe this one was issued in 1978 and it's in great shape. All original except for the pick ups which are TVJ Powerterons. Original pick ups are included in sale and comes with original Gretsch case. This thing screams and it has perfect neck width and body weight. Not too heavy and definitely not a light weight. Also, neck width is just right for players like me who have fat fingers. $650 or best offer

Teisco ET-230 in Bay Area for $270





These Sharkfin ET's are some of the best playing of the Teisco models and the pickups sound pretty good if they aren't too microphonic. This ET-230 model has the 4x2 headstock, striped pickguard, trussrod, adjustable bridge and the more heavy duty of the Bigsby knockoff vibrato's so it should be a decent player. Of course
it is a Teisco so it looks totally cool - that alone can be enough to take a look.

Hi. I have a 60's (not sure the year.. 62-65?) Harmony Stratotone. This is the two pickup, tobaccoburst model. The action is low, neck straight. There's some checking in the body here and there, but overall the guitar is in pretty good shape and plays well. The pickups have a really great, sortuv dirty garage rock/link wray sound. I think they are DeArmonds, but not positive. The bottom guitar strap knobby is missing, as is the plastic piece from the pickup selector. Sadly, i dont play it much because the neck is a thicker than i prefer. Email if interested.

1930's Melophonic Resonator in Northern MI for $100





I can't tell what's going in in the pictures but imagine that this needs a new cone and pridge and tailpiece so it is a project for sure. It may have been painted to look like a metal bodied guitar - or it may be metal, I can't tellf rom the pics. I believe Melophonic was a department store brand made by either Harmony, Kay or Valco. Definitely from the 1930's, though.

Wolfram 1890's Mandolin in Grand Rapids MI for $200 obo

Wolfram was a 19th Century guitar maker in Columbus Ohio and the first incarnation of his company went bust in 1901 so this would be an 1890's mandolin. He is famous for making the first aluminum neck guitar before the turn of the century.

There is no pic of the Mandolin on the listing but expect a bowl type (not a Gibson A style) with some nice woodwork. This would be one for the fretted Americana collectors.

The mandolin is in great shape with great sound I just don't know what to do with it. Stamped in the metal is"PAT. MAY 23,'93. Inside the bowl there is a label that reads"THE WOLFRAM GUITAR CO. COLUMBUS, OHIO." There is also a printed number on the wood in the bowl "5248". It is in a case but the case shows some wear. The bowl is wood strips in two colors. I wish I knew music, the sound is great. I don't know the value, if interested just make an offer. I don't know how to do pictures but a showing can be arranged. Thanks and have a nice evening.

1955 German Electric guitar in Witchita for $250 - Could be a hofner or Hoyer?


This could be an amazing deal -- this looks like a terrific little semi-hollow (with two pickups) from the fine guitar craftsmen of West Germany circa 1955. And he says it even comes with an amp (I am drooling in anticipation - what could the amp be?).

Note: Quite a few early and mid-century Gibson, Rickenbacker, Gretsch and Fender guitar builders were trained in West Germany. This guys Dad must have been in the service in Germany around the same time as Elvis.

It's body style is of a fender jazzmaster. The lipstick- pickup is in the neck position. The neck is Brazilian rosewood. It is a cool vintage black color. The tuners are all original and stay in tune great. The reason I'm selling this beauty is that my home studio has to much so I must sell allot of my amps and guitars.

This is a self contained 2/15inch 100 watt combo amp. The amp features 2 channels on complete with effects reverb and tremolo (the best tremolo ever!) the other simple bass and treble controls. Do not miss this amp it is in great shape considering age and there is no way you can get this sound for 350.00! Very rare Standel Studio 30 amplifier in very good condition. this amp was made around 1970 and Standel in its heyday was one of the best amplifiers available this amp sounds pristine will get loud but more importantly has a very very rich harmonic structure few amps can match. This amp is original in all aspects and for the collector this one is a real find. Will not ship due to size and weight. The 15 drivers are designed to have the same sound as the famous JBL d-130 - this amp is amazing you will love it

Dont miss on this the drivers are worth the price --it is an amazing amp!

Gibson Les Paul Special electric guitar

Les Paul Special Single Cutaway. This is how the Les Paul Special looked pre ’58 before the double cutaway model.

Solid slab mahogany (yet thinner and lighter than a LP Standard – very comfortable). Beautiful transparent wine. In superb condition. Bought this 1990ish and am the original owner. Serial #93440309 stamped into back of headstock along with ‘made in USA’. Note the soapbar pickups. Those are P100’s (stacked humbuckers) and look like the originally used P90’s (single coils). Tuners are mini-Grovers.

This is a really cool guitar and sounds awesome and is in wonderful condition. Price is $635.

Take it with my Peavy Bravo 112 tube amp for another $150 and you have a great package for $785. I bought the Peavy at the same time as the Les Paul and it is in just as good of shape. Great combo.

The hard shell case in the picture is included.
