Tokai Paisley Telecaster
This Tokai recreation of the the 1968 Fender Paisley tele comes even closer to the real thing then any of the Fender reissues.Even the Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilts don't look as much like the real thing as Tokais.Thats because they don't have the paper that was used on the the originals.Look at the photos below to see how close this Tokai comes to the original
My 1985 Tokai
You can see the paisley paper best in these photos. At the bottom is a photo of a genuine 1968 Fender Paisley telecaster for comparison.

I decided to put this up for sale. I really don't use it at all anymore. It sits in its case in a closet since I rarely play gigs anymore. I have been reluctant to sell it because I like it so much but if I can get good value for it, I'll sell it. This is serial #332 and it comes with a hard padded case and the footswitch. Here are some pics I took of it. It is in good condition and comes with a hardcase. Make an offer plus actual shipping costs or you can pick it up in Long Beach, CA.

I've got a Japanese Stratocaster project I'd like to part out. I'll take $250 shipped in the CONUS for it. It is black with a black headstock. Serial number indicates it's 1984-1987 year model (E plus 6 numbers) It has a JB humbucker installed in the bridge with a coil tap. It also comes with an LSR roller nut that needs to be shimmed and installed. Comes with a Fender HSC.
I also have a gold Peavey Wolfgang Special made in 1998 for sale. It's has several peeling spots in the paint that was common with the gold finish on these early wolfgangs but plays and sounds great. I'm looking to get $350 shipped in the CONUS for the Wolfgang with HSC.

Here is one incredibly well-taken-care-of Ibanez RG570 in a color-shifting finish known as Purple Neon.
- Original Wizard neck with matching headstock
- Lo Pro Edge Tremolo upgraded to Floyd Rose screw-in arm socket
- DiMarzio X2N bridge pickup
- DiMarzio PAF Pro neck pickup
Condition: I'd conservatively call this an 8.5/10. There are absolutely NO stress cracks at the locking nut or (amazingly) even at the neck pocket! The neck is stunningly clean with freshly polished frets and a working truss rod. The body is also quite good with only one notable imperfection on the face of the guitar (pictured here) and only minor wear on the back and sides. Please review the pictures carefully to assess the condition for yourself.

US Masters/ Regenberg Avada SFT
When US Masters wanted working musicians to discover their excellent guitars at the outset of the recession, they developed their performer line: instruments with all of the insane level of detail US Masters is known for with simpler shapes and less labor-intense finishes. This Avada SFT is one of those guitars, and it's a BEAUTY.
body: mahogany selected for light weight
neck: rock maple, pao ferro fretboard
electronics: Kent Armstrong p90s, 2 vol, 2 tone, 3-way switch
How's It Play?
The neck is smooth and fits the hand naturally- the back profile is between a medium C and a chunky U, hard to describe but very comfortable. Because of Regenberg's locking set neck joint, the body and neck vibrate together as a whole. It's a VERY resonant guitar.
How's It Sound?
The combination of p90 pickups and mahogany body is a pretty well documented "magic combo" in rock and country music. This guitar up the ante with a maple neck and pao ferro fretboard, which adds a little "zing" and articulation without ever being harsh. The soapbars occupy that ideal middle ground between humbucker and strat-style single coils: fat and round with clarity. Turn up the volume and there's attitude to spare.
What Makes It Special?
This is one of the last Avada SFTs made, and was special ordered with soapbar style pickups and a body selected for light weight. The stain is deep and rich and the tactile wood grain feels very natural and organic under-hand while playing.
What's Wrong With It?
It's a pretty well cared for used guitar, but it is used. There are a few little knucks along the edge, and one along the top. Because of the varnish finish, the body will dent before chipping, so there are no "chips".
What Come With The Guitar?
The guitar comes with the original, heavy canvas, padded TKL gig bag and "case candy", including truss rod tool.
GONE IN AN HOUR AT $475!

This is an original Mu Tron Bi-Phase that's in great working shape and decent cosmetic shape. Parkway Music in Clifton Park went through it a while ago and created an excellent footswitch for the machine. This is the same unite that Billy Corrigan of Smashing Pumpkins uses! A bit more info here at wikipedia
and for sound clips
These sell for $850-$1600 on ebay. Proceeds benefit a local non-profit wilderness and adirondack culture educational center.

Brand new Fender Classic Player Thinline Deluxe that I bought last week for $350. Can be yours for several hundred more now. Though if you're on TGP, make it $650.

Heritage cherry sunburst, all original with the 490R/BB Pro zebra pickups combo, Grover tuners, factory push-pull coil-taps. All electronics work as normal.
This one's been played a bit - there is a number of smaller dings that I have tried to show in the photos:
- Two along the front edge on the upper bout about 2" apart,
- A couple on the top of the headstock,
- The biggest one being about 1/2" on the bottom rear edge about 2" away from the strap pin,
- One indent on the read of the neck/body joint,
- Some small indents on the back side, and some superficial scratches here and there (some between the pickups; most are the surface-swirl-type on the back). Other than the dings on the edge described above, nothing that goes through the finish.
Fretboard is good, straight, and clean; frets have some wear, but no grooves, pits, dimples, etc. - all smooth. No headstock or neck issues. I would have to conservatively rate it a 8.5 out of 10 cosmetically, but that may be a bit harsh. Comes with OHSC that has a couple of small chunks out the back; otherwise excellent condition, and original paperwork.
For this forum, looking for $849.00 OBO PP'ed/shipped insured ground to lower 48 (only). Not looking for trades at this point, but if you have something cool like a cheap Epi LP Tribute or Custom Pro, or a Reverend, with cash to add, well...

IMO, this is as good as a Standard on a higher-end Studio budget.
This is a near-new Gibson Les Paul Signature T in wine red. In a word: gorgeous. It's about three months old, has not left my smoke-free home (except for the exterior pics ), and is in FLAWLESS condition. NO dings, dents, scratches, gouges, worming - NOTHING. I will give it a 9.9 out of ten, THAT'S how near-perfect it is. Bound body and fretboard, '60s neck, nice flame on the top, and Classic '57 pickups with the push-pull coil taps for single-coil tones. The factory Grover locking tuners are a MASSIVE improvement over the vintage-style tuners as far as stability goes. Nice heft to the body. All in all, it is THE Les Paul I have wanted for decades (so, don't ask why I'm selling ).
Select Mahogany body with carved, solid Grade-AA figured Maple,
Mahogany neck with a 60s SlimTaper™ profile,
Granadillo fingerboard with trapezoid inlays,
57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge,
Grover™ locking tuners.
These go brand new for $1899.00. This one is new as new gets without having the original, sealed carton. It still has that nitro smell. It is all original, with OHSC and all paperwork and truss rod tool. I am asking [B]$1500.00 PP'ed/shipped[/B] OBO to lower 48 only. Not looking for trades at this time.
Please shoot me a PM if you are interested. Thanks!

Up for sale is my late 80's Cort GE20 Les Paul Custom. Cort pretty much got started by ripping off Fender and Gibson designs - and got away with it for quite a while - until a few lawsuits came in and these were no more. What else would you expect for a guitar with a perfect LP body and an extremely close copy of the Gibson headstock? I saw one of these go on Ebay for $300 + shipping a little while ago. You won't find a better playing and sounding guitar for under $200, much less $150.
Anyway, the guitar sounds and plays very nice. It's actually the best playing guitar I own, which makes me hesitate to let it go. The action is set low, and there is no string buzz or dead spots. It sounds very thick and articulate, not dull and muddy like many import LPs. I got it for $200 a while ago, intending to change the pickups and use it as a mod platform, but I like the humbuckers it has. They're a little hotter than PAFs, but not over the top.
The neck has perfect MOP block inlays with no visable filler or defects. It's closer to the 60's LP profile than the 50's, and feels just a bit thin for my very large hands, part of the reason I'm letting it go. The tuners feel a bit cheap, but keep it in tune very well, so they have stayed. The bridge and tailpiece are, I'm guessing, chrome-plated brass, given their weight. They are solid and seem more robust than the cheap aluminum ones we see on a lot of imports. The neck is a bolt on, though with a very tight, well-fitted joint. This is nice as it allows better access to the upper frets, though a LP purist might take issue with this. Then again, such a person wouldn't be looking at Cort imports. The pickup rings are cracked. It's a $5-10 dollar fix if you search Amazon. I had a stutter/cut switch installed- Tom Morello fans out there, take notice. There are a fair number of small scratches, mostly on the back, and other minor cosmetic imperfections. It's not a brand new guitar, but it's not bad considering its age. The frets have little wear.
Oh, the gig bag is really nice too. And I'll throw some new strings on it.
