1984 Gibson Explorer 83 Ferrari Red Triangle Knob Layout W / OHSC

Iowa City, Iowa, 522**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


It??s hard to beat these rock??n??roll machines. The Explorer is a staple in the rock / metal scene, and having a Kahler bridge system was all the rage at the time. Ferrari Red is a very 80s color, too. This one has all new electronics: pickups, pots, input jack, switch, and wiring. The pickups are a set of Geppetto Jalapeno humbuckers, the pots are Bourns 500k, and the switch and input jack are Switchcraft. The Kahler is original, but the nut is a direct replacement. The original is in the ... more

Vintage 1981 Guild M-80 Sunburst W / OHSC

Iowa City, Iowa, 522**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


These guitars deserve so much more credit than they get. Even though it??s on the heavier side at 9lbs 15oz, it??s one of the best playing, looking, and sounding guitars I??ve had the good fortune of owning. This one has the early DiMarzio XR-7 humbucker pickups, and they live up to the hype. They??re loud and creamy- milkshake thick tone. The mini-toggle phase switch adds some nice flavor when needed, too. The carved maple top / mahogany body is a classic look, the 3 piece maple neck is solid, ... more

Vintage Yamaha Super Axe SA1000 1977 - 1983 Cherry

Iowa City, Iowa, 522**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


These are always great guitars. Once you play one of these you get why Gibson tried so hard to stop them from being sold. These are, hands down, the best value when it comes to old and cool guitars. The pickups punch way above their weight, and the neck is super comfortable. The overall condition is excellent, with some minor surface scratches and scuffs, and a very minimal amount of fret wear. Weight is 9lbs even. The original hard shell case is included

1984 ESP Hybrid I Fiesta Red MIJ

Iowa City, Iowa, 522**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


These are hard to find because they were only made in this Strat body style for 1 year before switching to an LP double cut body style. Personally, I think this version is way cooler. A Strat with Tele electronics is the simplest way to explain it. I??ve included a couple of catalog pages from 84 to make it easier to check out the history. It??s a great playing and sounding guitar. The neck feels good in the hands, definitely has a vintage vibe and feel, and the electronics have a classic Tele... more
