1970s Microfrets Golden Comet! SOLD! The pride of Frederick, MD! It doesn’t get much wilder than Microfrets. Combining some interesting innovations with an eclectic aesthetic, this short lived brand pushed the boundaries of guitar design. Played by artists across the spectrum, you would find a Microfrets playing country/rockabilly in Carl Perkin’s hands one night and then rocking out with Grand Funk Railroad’s Mark Farner the next. The most interesting features of the Microfrets guitars were the adjustable Micro-nut and Calibrato vibrato. Way ahead of Buzz Feiten, the Micro-Nut allowed players to tailor their intonation while the Calibrato offered fully in tune whammy bar dives. The bodies were semi hollow and featured a tuned tone chamber inside. Raloh Jones, the brains behind the guitars, benchmarked the Fender Jaguar and so Microfrets feature the same 24” scale length. Pickups on this example were designed by Bill Lawrence and sound great. Almost everything on these guitars was home brewed, from the pickups to the cast aluminum hardware. This Golden Comet is a great example of the breed. It’s a fairly uncommon non trem model and features all of the charm and quirkiness that you would want from a Microfrets. Groovy 1970s Walnut finish (Microfrets’ finishes were developed by Sherwin Williams and were called Super Kemvar M. They were derived from the ultra tough finishes used on the lab tables of Frederick’s Ft Detrick chemical weapons lab. How’s that for some trivia?)and white plastic. An exciting piece of Mid Century design direct from my own collection and ready for yours! SOLD!

2008 Gretsch 1957 Reissue 6128-DS! SOLD! The Duo Jet is one of my favorite guitars. Shaped sorta like a Les Paul, Gretsch always called it a solid body.

1959 Gretsch 6125 Anniversary! SOLD! Late 50’s Gretsch Anniversaries have been sleepers on the vintage market in my opinion. They offer the same trestle braced construction as the much, much more expensive late 50s 6120s. I also think the 2 tone smoke green is one of the coolest colors out there. You can find the much more common Hi-Lo-Tron equipped 60s models any day of the week but cool late 50s Filtertron and trestle braced models sure have seemed to have dried up out there. If you want the Setzer tone but don’t wanna have to sell your car to do it, this is one of your best choices. The body is made of laminated maple. The real magic though is in the bracing. Chet Atkins repeatedly asked Gretsch for a solid block (not unlike an ES-335) to be added to the hollowbody guitars for added sustain and feedback resistance. In 1958, Gretsch compromised and added the famous trestle bracing. A cool feature that really adds to the distinct and powerful sound that these guitars have. The neck is laminated maple and features an ebony fingerboard with delicate thumbprint inlays. A single PAF Filtertron pickup resides at the neck for classic tone. A trapeze tailpiece and a space control bridge team up with Waverly open back tuners for solid performance. The original 2 tone smoke green paint lends a hip vintage vibe. One of my favorite Gretsch models and a worthy addition to any collection! SOLD!

 


2000 Gretsch 6120! SOLD! Here's a fairly uncommon and cool Gretsch. This is Gretsch's regular 6120 prior to the Fender era. Built to recall the classic western appointed 6120s of the 50s but not be a direct reissue per se, these are cool guitars for anyone wanting a basic 6120. The hollow body is laminated maple for classic tone. The rosewood fingerboard features unique block markers. Dual Filtertron pickups deliver vintage tone. Sealed Gretsch tuners and an adjustable roller bridge keep it rock solid. A Bigsby V-cut vibrato tailpiece brings the twang. The finish is classic Gretsch orange transparent. A cool and somewhat uncommon model! SOLD!

1979 Kramer DMZ 5000 Bass! SOLD! Kramer's aluminum neck instruments are highly under rated in my opinion. Great modern sounding instruments with innovative features and cool looks.

A great sounding set of Dimarzio P and J pickups hooked to an active system with coil taps. Schaller tuners keep everything in tune. A 70s approved natural finish makes this look great.

A set of Gibson P-90s (expensive pickups on the vintage market) were added at the neck and bridge position while what appears to be a Fender Jazzmaster pickup holds court in the middle.

Add in the middle pickup and you get a full, rich tone. The controls are simplified with a master volume and tone hooked to a 3 way switch and then an on/off for the middle pickup. Nothing fancy. The pickups are basically mounted without spacers. If I were going to take it on the road, I'd fabricate a set of spacers for a little better look and reliability.

Retro Gear Prototype Solidbody! SOLD!Here's a very cool and rare guitar for not a lot of bucks! Check out the fancy inlays and nice craftsmanship! This is a very cool and presumably rare Retro Gear prototype. In recent years, it seems like almost anyone could start a guitar company and have a factory in China build their product. I believe what we are looking at is a product from one of those companies that never made it past the prototype stage. I can't find any info on Retro Gear. Here's the only info I could find, a positive Harmony Central review. It looks like they scrubbed the mission before it left the launching pad. Failure to launch, Houston, we have trouble.

1984 Martin D-28 D-2832 Shenandoah! SOLD! When I think vintage dreadnought, the Martin D-28 is what pops into my mind. Unfortunately, a D-28 can be a pricey proposition. During the 80s, Martin introduced the Shenandoah line to offer players lower priced versions of their venerable models. Using parts sourced in Japan, Martin did final assembly and finishing in PA. They were marked made in USA but they were a little Japanese and a little American or a little country, a little rock n roll if you prefer. For some reason, you mention Japan regarding almost any other manufacturer and you get an enthusiastic response. The Martins were less well received. A shame in my opinion as they were generally nice guitars at a good price. The top is solid spruce while the back and sides are laminated rosewood for good tone and projection. The 25.4 inch scale mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. A rosewood bridge and sealed tuners complete the picture.

2007 Brian May Special Guitar! SOLD! One of the most recognized guitars in the world! Brian's original homemade Red Special was responsible for some of the most distinctive tones in rock history. You've heard the tone. No other guitars have it. For years guitarists wanted that sound but unfortunately no commercially available instrument offered it. You could have a boutique builder handcraft one or find one of the rare 80s or 90s Guild signature models but that meant big bucks. Luckily a few years ago Burns London started building a signature model with all of Brian's trademark features. The new models are now made by Brian May Guitars and are priced so almost anyone can afford them. All of the important features of the original Red Special are here. The body is made of chambered mahogany and features handsome binding. The 24 inch scale mahogany neck features a 24 fret ebony fingerboard. A trio of Burns Tri-Sonic pickups dish out trademark tone.

1986 Charvel Jackson Model 2! SOLD! Let’s hop on the time machine and head back to the 80’s! Lots of manufacturers were making some great shredders in Japan at this time. Charvel, Ibanez, Jackson, and Kramer were flooding the market with top quality Super Strats. This Charvel Model 2 is a great example of a nice Japanese Super Strat. It features a cool airbrush scorpion graphic on the front. I would presume this to not be a factory graphic but appears to have been done early in the guitar's life. Very cool! The body is basswood for punchy tone. The maple neck features a rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets. The bridge pickup has been upgraded to a Seymour Duncan JB humbucker. The original pickup included. The original Kahler 2500 series trem offers dive bombing excitement. This example is finished in a creamy pearl white and is set off by the aforementioned scorpion graphic and black hardware. A great quality guitar that will be awesome for many players! SOLD!

Good specs in a very familiar package. Just like the original Lester Polfus inspired design, this one has a mahogany back for good sustain. Electra went one step further though and added a Strat like tummy contour on the back for comfort. The top is a gorgeous flame maple. Probably a veneer but very nice looking.

Not just for looks though, the Silver Jet is made to perform. The mahogany body is routed with special tone chambers for added resonance. Coupled with the arched laminated maple tops, the Jets have a really distinct, lively tone. The 24.6 inch scale mahogany neck has a 12 inch radius rosewood fingerboard board inlayed with cool humpblock position markers. Dual Filtertron pickups dish out killer Hi FI tones with nice snap.

1998 Parker Fly with Upgrades! SOLD! One of the most innovative guitars ever built! I'm a pretty traditional guitar fan. I love hollowbodies and Teles  and tube amps and all that stuff that most guitar players go crazy for. I also try to keep an open mind about new stuff and the Parker Fly is a guitar that really performs. Bar none, almost every Fly I've ever played has felt great. Low action, comfortable neck and wonderful ergonomics. Sonically, they can offer a ton of tones and will slot well into almost any mix. To anyone that may have their doubts or can't dig the cosmetics, play one. A real USA made Fly is a great instrument that sounds and performs incredibly well. This Parker is a great example of the breed. Built in the pre US Music Corp days if such a thing matters to you, it has all of the innovative features that made Ken Parker famous. The ultra lightweight body is made of poplar. The body shape is graceful and incredibly sculpted. Until you see one in person, you may not understand how cool these look. The 25.5 inch scale basswood neck features a carbon glass epoxy fingerboard with 24 stainless steel frets. These frets will almost certainly never wear out.

1999 Dearmond by Guild M-75T! SOLD! Guild’s Dearmond line has been popular among retro minded players. Discontinued for awhile now, they have steadily held their value or increased in price in recent years. How can you argue with the vibe? Based on the famous Aristocrat/Bluesbird outline, the M-75 offers a great alternative to a Gibson Les Paul or Gretsch Duo Jet. The single cutaway body is agathis (similar to mahogany) and features a maple top. Dearmond reported these bodies were chambered but accounts vary as to how much. Definitely more on the Les Paul side than the Duo Jet realm. The 24.75 inch scale maple neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with block inlays. Dual USA MADE Dearmond Single Coils deliver classic tone from warm and sweet to nasty and growling. An Adjustomatic bridge, Bigsby style vibrato and sealed tuners round out the hardware.

Good specs in a very familiar package. Just like the original Lester Polfus inspired design, this one has a mahogany back for good sustain.

Very hot, especially for the time, these pickups have found many fans. The pickups are hooked to Electra's innovative Tone Spectrum switching system which offers a variety of in phase, out of phase and coil tap options. Very versatile. I've heard rumors that the pickups and electronics for these guitars were made in the USA but can't confirm. A Tuneomatic style bridge, Stopbar tailpiece and sealed tuners keep it rock solid.

1956 Gretsch Country Club! ON HOLD! The Gretsch Country Club has always been one of my favorite models. Second only to the White Falcon in the old days, the Country Club offered traditional jazz guitar looks and tone. This 56 example is ready for almost anything you can throw at it: jazz, blues, country, rockabilly, you name it. A great guitar. The body is laminated maple for bright tone and good feedback resistance. The 2 piece maple neck features a bound ebony fingerboard with pearl hump block inlays.

2004 Gretsch 6122-1962 SP Country Classic! SOLD! Based on the 1962 Country Gentleman as used by George Harrison, the 6122-1962 incorporates all the best features for a truly accurate representation. The SP models were made a few years ago in a separate factory to offer Beatle fans (as well as vintage guitar nuts) a more accurate recreation of a vintage Gretsch. They really went for the details here. The hollow body is made of laminated maple and is sealed with no F holes for better feedback resistance. The 3 Pice maple neck features a 24.6 inch scale bound ebony fingerboard with delicate thumb print inlays. This particular example even has some nice figure to the neck. Dual High Sensitive Filtertron pickups are hooked to the unique Gretsch tone switch for tons of tones. A floating bar bridge offers sustain while the V cut Bigsby vibrato dishes out retro effects. Grover Imperial tuners add a fancy art deco touch. Just like the originals, this one features dual flip up mutes and a back pad. The finish is a deep brown and is set off by multiple bindings and gold hardware. If you want a Gretsch just like George played, this one is dang close! As an added bonus, this guitar was once owned by the great Wilson Pickett! Unfortunately, no documentation comes with it but I bought it from a store near his home in Virginia and they claimed he bought it and traded it back in. How cool is that?!? SOLD!


1958 Gretsch 6125 Anniversary! SOLD! Late 50’s Gretsch Anniversaries have been sleepers on the vintage market in my opinion. They offer the same trestle braced construction as the much, much more expensive late 50s 6120’s. I also think the 2 tone smoke green is one of the coolest colors out there. You can find the much more common Hi-Lo-Tron equipped 60s models any day of the week but cool late 50s Filtertron and trestle braced models sure have seemed to have dried up out there. Again, late 50s Annies are basically the same as a late 50s 6120 in terms of construction. If you want the Setzer tone but don’t wanna have to sell your car to do it, this is one of your best choices. The body is made of laminated maple. The real magic though is in the bracing. Chet Atkins repeatedly asked Gretsch for a solid block (not unlike an ES-335) to be added to the hollowbody guitars for added sustain and feedback resistance. In 1958, Gretsch compromised and added the famous trestle bracing. A cool feature that really adds to the distinct and powerful sound that these guitars have. The neck is laminated maple and features an ebony fingerboard with delicate thumbprint inlays. A single PAF Filtertron pickup resides at the neck for classic tone. A trapeze tailpiece and a space control bridge team up with Waverly open back tuners for solid performance. The bridge base has been changed to an aluminium Bigsby model but everything else is all original. The original 2 tone smoke green paint lends a hip vintage vibe. One of my favorite Gretsch models and a worthy addition to any collection! SOLD!

A great value for a Made in the USA instrument of this quality. Top notch specs throughout. The body of this H-140 is mahogany and is thinner than your average Les Paul for light weight. The one piece mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. Dual humbuckers dish out great tones. A Tuneomatic roller bridge, Heritage Stopbar tailpiece and Grover Rotomatic tuners keep it all solid. The finish is classic black lacquer set off by creme binding.

Heavy on vibe but with affordable price tags, these guitars were super popular among retro minded buyers.

A really cool guitar in terms of looks but it also has some sweet tone. Hollow body with F holes for warm sounds. The bound rosewood fingerboard features pearloid block inlays.

1980’s Charvel Jackson Model 5! SOLD! Let’s hop on the time machine and head back to the 80’s! Lots of manufacturers were making some great shredders in Japan at this time. Charvel, Ibanez, Jackson, and Kramer were flooding the market with top quality Super Strats. This Charvel Model 5 is a great example of a top of the line Japanese Super Strat. Neck through body for killer sustain. My guess would be that the neck is maple with basswood wings as that’s a common construction for these guitars. It also equates to a guitar with a nice punchy tone and crisp highs. The rosewood fingerboard is on the flatter side and the frets are wide for good bending. Dual Jackson made active humbuckers deliver powerful tones. A Floyd Rose licensed trem and sealed tuners dish out rock solid performance. This example is finished in a striking dark blue metallic and set off by black hardware. A great quality guitar that will be great for many players! SOLD!


1999 Dearmond by Guild M-75! SOLD! Guild’s Dearmond line has been popular among retro minded players.

Based on the famous Aristocrat/Bluesbird outline, the M-75 offers a great alternative to a Gibson Les Paul or Gretsch Duo Jet. The single cutaway body is agathis (similar to mahogany) and features a maple top. Dearmond reported these bodies were chambered but accounts vary as to how much. Definitely more on the Les Paul side than the Duo Jet realm. The 24.75 inch scale maple neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with block inlays. Dual USA MADE Goldtone humbuckers deliver classic tone from warm and sweet to nasty and growling. An Adjustomatic bridge, harp tailpiece and sealed tuners round out the hardware.

They even utilize some of Gibson’s original tooling and equipment! The H-535 is the Heritage version of the venerable ES-335. The body is laminated flame maple with a maple centerblock for increased sustain and feedback resistance. The wood is nicely flamed and makes for a gorgeous guitar.

1964 Guild M-65 Freshman! SOLD! If you’re a Guild fan like me, this Freshman makes for some hip eye candy. I have (and dearly love) a couple 50s Aristocrats that have found their way into my personal stash. Unfortunately, prices on original Arostocrats and Bluesbirds have been doing nothing but going up, up, and up. That is, if you can find one for sale! The only answer is the similar Freshman. Sort of a Les Paul JR to the Aristocrat’s Les Paul Standard, the M-65 Freshman offers similar appearance and construction all with Guild’s top notch build quality. Unfortunately, most Freshman were short scale. Not this one though! This is the much harder to find and desirable long necked version. Yup, this is the one you want. Fully hollow laminated mahogany body for rich deep tones. The one piece mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. The clear sounding single coil pickup (Possibly made by Dearmond but I’ll have to check the Moust book on that) delivers great tone. An art deco harp tailpiece, rosewood bridge and open geared tuners keep it rock solid. A cherry red lacquer finish gives this one an upscale look. All original with nbo repairs. This guitar has a lively acoustic tone but has nice hollowbody warmth. Great for blues, jazz, rockabilly and just about any type of music you can think of. Guilds have long been a personal favorite of mine. This little M-65 is a great example of why! SOLD!

The 24.75 inch scale maple neck features a rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets and cool pearloid V inlays. Very striking. The pickups on this one have been upgraded to a great sounding set of EMG HZ passive pickups. Very nice tone. Hardware includes a Tuneomatic bridge (with string through body for more sustain) and Grover tuners. All hardware is black plated for a cool look. The body is painted black and accented with a strip of pearloid binding. Very classy looking. A cool guitar for the bucks and a fine addition to any player’s arsenal. SOLD!

1950’s Silvertone Espanada H62! SOLD! Wow! Here’s one of my favorites, direct from my secret stash. This is a super rare Silvertone 1385L (Also referred to as a 1427L after 1960 and as an H62 if it has a Harmony logo) that has been one of my favorite archtops. Basically the same thing as the famous Espanada except without the metal binding. Also similar to the more conservative Artist Jazz series. Super duper uncommon, I’ve only seen a handful. A top end Harmony built guitar. Don’t mistake this one for a cheapie. It will go head to head with bigger brand names. The body is big and thick at 3 inches deep. Around 16 or so inches wide. The top is laminated spruce I believe with maple back and sides. The maple neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearloid block inlays. The pickups are the famous Harmony P-13’s. Gibson wound, these are basically vintage P-90’s in a different cover. Original trapeze tailpiece and floating bridge (I used to have a Bigsby on it. Man did that rock!) team with open back Waverly tuners. The finish is Jet Black lacquer which contrasts nicely with the wide binding. An incredible guitar for jump blues, swing, jazz or rockabilly. Better than many Gretsch boxes of the era, I would have no problem recommending this one to a pro player. Again, super uncommon and a great addition to archtop lovers collection! SOLD!

2006 Gretsch Billy Bo Jupiter Thunderbird! SOLD! The Gretsch Jupiter Thunderbird is one of the most unique designs in guitar history. Inspired by Bo's custom built 1959 creation, this guitar demands attention. If you ever saw clips of Bo or his lovely sidekick The Duchess ripping it up on this guitar know how crazy this guitar looks. Bo gave one of his original Jupiters to Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top.

2005 Gretsch Duo Jet! SOLD! Have you always lusted for a Gretsch? A ton of folks have been recently won over by these great sounding and playing guitars. The cool vibe doesn't hurt! The Duo Jet is one of my favorite models. Shaped sorta like a Les Paul, Gretsch always called it a solid body.
