G&L Tribute Fallout in gloss black

Impressive Mid-Price Electrics

If you play electric, you should know about G&L - the guitar company Leo Fender founded after he famously sold his original business to the suits at CBS back in the 1960s. Leo is gone, but G&L still makes world-class guitars using his designs.

They call their mid-price line "Tribute". Made in Indonesia, these guitars are built with US-made pickups and hardware and are carefully set up in G&L's California workshop - an impressive nod to quality in this competitive price range.

Here's an example: This Tribute Fallout has a comfortable, solid mahogany body; a P90 pickup in the neck position; a meaty humbucker at the bridge position; and a 3-way selector switch. The humbucker has a push-pull coil tap switch so you can opt for a cleaner tone if you want. All of this for only $479 including a nice padded gig bag!

But wait, there's more... Check out the specs on all our in-stock G&L Tribute guitars and basses here >>>

Furch Indigo Plus D-CY

Solid Gloss Cedar Top - Only $949

We've been talking about Furch guitars for a couple of years now. Made in the Czech Republic in a historic family workshop, these acoustics represent careful workmanship and deliver remarkable value.

We received another shipment of Furch guitars, including some at a really attractive lower price point. Customers love them, and some have sold already.

This Indigo Plus-level Dreadnaught features a solid Western red cedar top with a gloss top and layered mahogany back and sides. The combination of the cedar top and the Dreadnaught size delivers tons of low end.

Like all the Furch instruments, this is a lot of guitar for only $949 including a sturdy padded Furch gig bag. More >>>

Shopping in the time of COVID - Some suggestions

Please be aware that COVID-19 has been disrupting the music instrument supply chain for months. Some popular items are in short supply and we have waiting lists.

Here are a few suggestions for making your shopping easier and safer for everyone:

G&L S-500

Stunning 1960's Gibson Hollowbody Bass

Thunder your classic Jack Bruce or Glenn Cornick bass riffs, or your R&B funk on this super-sweet Gibson EB-2D! The cherry finish on a Gibson semi-hollowbody is immediately recognizable. This is the two-pickup version with the huge neck humbucker and bridge mini-humbucker. Looks to be all original. Come try it! More >>>

Martin OO-15M Lefty

A Mahogany Small-body Martin - Lefty!

We ordered a batch of C. F. Martin guitars way back last spring, just in time for their Pennsylvania factory to be shut down by COVID-19. The factory has reopened, but of course they're way behind with their production. So far, only a few of the guitars from our order have arrived, including this left-handed all-solid-mahogany OO-15M.

Standard guitars are in short supply this season, but lefty models are even more so. We were fortunate to get this guitar since even the national chains seem to be out of stock. This is one of Martin's best values at $1,299 with a hardshell case. If you play lefty and are looking for a moderately-priced small-body Martin with tons of tone, call or come in soon!

Here's the entire list of our in-stock and on-order Martins. If you're interested in any of the on-order instruments, contact us to get on our waiting list.

Oasis guitar humidifier

It's That Time of the Year Again

That's right, we are into the New England winter season! When your central heat is cranking, the dry heat can make an unsafe environment for your acoustic guitar - especially one with solid wood components.

The Oasis Guitar Humidifier is a simple yet effective way to keep your guitar protected against shrinking, warping and cracking. Just check it once a week and refill it with inexpensive distilled water. Better safe than sorry! More >>>
