1940's Elecrtromuse Lap Steel in Roanoke VA area for $150

This seller is not exaggerating when he says this may be one of the earliest electric guitar models. The Electromuse company is often noted as being part of the birth of the electric guitar.

1974 Gibson J-40 Acoustic at GC in Webster TX for $599

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.

1984 MIJ Squier Stratocaster in Camasrillo CA for $275

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 call at

1960's Teisco/Kawai/Guyatone Bison Bass - big ole Thumper in Central CA-Bay Area for $80

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.

Can't go wrong for $80... can you?

condition: good
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 out.

only asking for $80.00
