We've been waiting months for some of our most popular instruments to arrive - and they're finally here! If you've been waiting, come in or call right away to reserve your instrument.
Here's a true vintage beauty: A Fender Jazzmaster from 1965. Originally designed for jazz players, its sound also developed a following among surf and alternative/rock players. Wired completely differently from other Fender models, the two 'soapbar' single-coil pickups can be switched into Lead or Rhythm circuit arrangements. More >>>
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. Furch models are arranged by colors of the rainbow. The Violet models are the most affordable, with appointments (and price) increasing through Indigo Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and finally Red models.
All the levels deliver remarkable quality and value at their respective price points. This mid-price Green level G-SR has a solid Sitka spruce top and the truly special solid Indian rosewood back shown in the photo. You would pay hundreds more for a guitar of this quality from one of the popular brands!
Like all the Furch instruments, this is a lot of guitar for only $1,649 including a Hiscox hardshell case. More >>>

Here are a few suggestions for making your shopping easier and safer for everyone:
If a broken in vintage Gibson dreadnaught is your style, check out this SJ Deluxe from right around 1973. Approaching almost 50 years old now it has seasoned very nicely. Big throaty dry Gibson sound coming from the larger dreadnaught sound box. See more details here >>>.
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 >>>
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 >>>
