SOLD another coming. Cort Frank Gambale Luxe, set with ultra low action and 10-47 strings with a plain G! this guitar is perfect for the fast jazz fusion player, or for an older guitarist who is having trouble with the stiffer strings on a regular guitar acoustic. Having turned 60 myself recently I know where this legendary Aussie guitarist is coming from! Exquisitely made from all solid Otway ranges Blackwood and Adirondack Spruce, this guitar is a stunner, $1795 including deluxe case, all the staff and guitar teachers are wanting one. Suits electric players, gypsy Jazz players, classical players (it's a classical size body) and regular acoustic players. SOLD Another one on way - we'll have some at the Guitar Show - come and see. SOLD next one oderered
1925 Circa Washburn / Oscar Scmidt; fully restored by Ian Watchorn about 10-12 years ago. Beautiful old "parlour' style guitar that looks and sounds great, the workmanship is exquisite, and considerably above Stella's and the like from the same period. Reasonably priced 20th Century classic.
Fender Strat Electric 12 String 2007 CIJ Japanese Made, great opportunity as these are scarce, 12 saddle bridge and Strat pickups with 5 way switch, make it possibly the nicest, most accurate sounding electric 12 ever. Only ever two runs of these, one in about 1997 the other 10 years later.
1975 Takamine F370. The oldest Jap Takamine we've had for a while. This is all laminated timber copy of the Martin D28 and possibly the guitar that started the whole 'lawsuit' era. All fixed up and now 41 years old it's a good buy and at $595
2012 Fender Telecaster Rosewood fingerboard, Candy Apple Red finish NOS from a middle eastern guitar store
1973 Martin D12 28, Martin D28 tone in a twelve string - what is there not to like??
Morgan Mahgany Concert; less than 100 made each year from this Canadian maker. We now have four different models in stock and for pure clear tone these are hard to beat. If D is too large and 000 too small, the Concert could be your perfect guitar. 000 and 00 and now OM models in stock too. This new Mahogany Concert is remarkable in tone, volume and projection, I'd say it is one of the most perfectly rounded guitars we have ever had. Looks amazing with a little bear claw figure on the spruce top, understated elegance personified and even a simple C-G chord figure sounds like a choir of angels. This is our third Concert Morgan, and possibly the best so far.
1966 Martin GT70 Hollowbody - twin De Armonds - YES - a Martin electric hollowbody - Gretsch like in sound and a funky look. Very Rare - possibly the ponly one in the Southern Hemisphere
We have in stock the latest Cort Signature model - Matt Bellamy of Muse, designed by Matt and Andy Manson of Manson Guitars Exeter UK. These are in limited supply and available for a short while only. $1195. One only left - not sure if we can source any more. SOLD
Fender Japan Dreadnought F65 1976 in fantastic condition and Grover heads fitted with hard case - 40 years old, not common, especially in this condition.
2006 Paul Reed Smith SC 250 10 Top with Birds - now discontinued and a great opportunity. This one is a gem and has all the attributes of this legendary US maker, awesome. $3995
Rickenbacker 330 12st in Jetglow - this one is a perfect specimen in every respect. $3300
1979 Fender Strat all original one owner - black with maple neck original Victoria Case Co case - not one those 'orrible plastic efforts. Very good example, professional refret with nice jumbo frets, vibrato arm is not working due to stripped threads, can be fixed and retapped if desired. We've set it up like a hardtail. Looks like the Edges Strat ( Dave Evans U2 ). Sounds chimey and bright like a great Strat should, SOLD
1956 Fender Strat Vintage RI - 2015 - in Coral Pink - nice Strat and unusual and rare colour.
1956 Fender Strat Vintage RI - 2000 Custom Shop - Black with gorgeous flamed maple neck.
Boss DS1 original Japanese made. Probably 1979 VGC
Fender Super 6 ~ Calling all bouzouki players; we have in stock an original 1975 Fender Super Six amplifier for sale, considered to be THE amp for the electric bouzouki - and has a spare channel for another player or for an electric guitar. Six 10" speakers, fully serviced by Tim Evans, original casters for mobility. Very uncommon, would suit surf guitarist too. New footswitch provided, and tested and tagged, sounds unreal, the six 10" speakers really add a massive amount of bottom end and having the controls so high mean finessing the sound on the fly is a breeze. Casters fitted on the side makes it quite easy to move around and it's not massively heavy, an amp for the ages!
Fender Twin Reverb - 1975 also - silver face, freshly serviced by TR Evans, and on castors, makes a difference, believe us. Great condition
SECOND HAND ACOUSTICS ~ We have a good array of pre-loved classical and flat top steel string guitars at present, including Guild, Maton, Martin, Tanglewood, Epiphone, Epiphone Masterbilt, Takamine Dragon, Fender F65, 1982 Diaon MIJ and two blue Art & Lutherie Canadian made beauties. Our best selling new brand is Cort and we always have a decent array of their acoustics including the phenomenonal Earth Grande BW - solid spruce top and beautiful Otway Ranges Blackwood back & sides.
