Spotted this Gibson J-40 Acoustic at the Guitar Center in Webster TX for only $599. Collectors don't love the 1970's CMI/Norlin era Gibson's but that doesn't mean this can't be a terrific guitar for somebody out there - especially if it's been well cared for over the past 40 years. Worth taking a look for sure.
I stumbled across this posting on the Gear Pag and thought it might interest my readers. I don't know this guitar player but he has work available on iTunes and Amazon and he has access to some incredibly rare and cool guitars - include one that belonged to Duane Eddy!

Here is a seller offering a 1984 Squier Strat that has a big headstock, 3-bolt neck and bullet truss rod just like the 1970's era guitars. This is from the period when FMIC had been purchased by the employees and they didn't have the Corona plant up and running yet so Japan production was a big part of their business. I've owned a few Japanese Fender Strats from this period and they can be pretty nice - especially the necks. Note that this is not a JV Squier (Japanese Vintage series).
The hardware and wiring is usually hit or miss so it helps to look at them carefully - edxpecailly things like the saddles, the bridges and the biggest culprits are the VOL and tone pots. However, as we all know - those items are fairly easily replaced. I see MIJ Squiers going for quite a bit more than this on eBay. Some sellers are even asking this much money for just a neck. Either way might be worth checking this out.
I am Selling my Vintage made in Japan 1984 Fender Squire plays
amazing. Or I will trade for a bass of equal quality. This vintage
guitar comes with the original owners manual that you will have a hard
time finding anywhere. This is a good one and has the SQ serial number,
and is a Fender 70s Reissue with a nice maple neck with large headstock
and has the alnico pickups like the American Strats and some of the JV
Squires so it sounds amazing also has the 70s 3 bolt neck and bullet
truss rod and big block trem. Plays and sounds better than some American
Fender Stratocasters out there. Comes with a really nice heavy duty
carry Bag and the original owners manual. First $275 cash firm If you
find a cheaper one of these buy it cause this is a great deal. Give me a
Wow check this nifty long scale solid body Japanese made Bison style Bass guitar form the 1960's. Not sure who made these but it looks similar to some of the MIJ Kingston/Kawai/Apollo made Bison guitars of the period.
I got this Bass guitar at an estate sale. I am most positive
that this is a bass guitar from the 60s. based upon the style of the
pickup and body shape. I'm guessing it is similar to a Japanese brand
guitar. might be japanese. Either way it's a really cool vintage bass
and with some new strings and fine tuning this bass guitar will stand
This seller is offering one of the earlier Epiphones to gain popularity - the Olympic. Nice Solid Spruce top archtop made in the original New York factory. Quite a find for only $400. Seller says the pickup was added in the 1970's so might be decent sounding. Check it out:
1943 Epiphone Olympic archtop guitar. A pickup was installed
back in the 70"s. Comes with a semi-hardshell case. It has a crack that

$400.00. Feel free to email, call or text.
