Rare guitars, amps, and effects! (Plover)


condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Various
model name / number: Various

I’m starting the new year by reducing my collection. They’re great guitars, amps, and effects, and I love them all, but it’s time for them to move on – and time for me, too.

I’ve been studying the guitar market for decades, so I know these prices are below the market, which is a nice way of saying please don’t try to lowball me. If these don’t sell I’ll just hang on to them. However, if you want to take everything I’ll give you a nice volume discount.

Similarly, I’m not interested in trades except for possibly a nice PRS – no SEs.

I don’t have pictures of them all, so feel free to ask about any guitar that isn’t pictured here, and I'll snap some photos. Thanks!
