Ron DeMarino USA Handmade Custom Strat

Ron DeMarino USA Handmade Custom Strat Ron DeMarino USA Handmade Custom Strat Ron DeMarino USA Handmade Custom Strat Ron DeMarino was a well known repairman operating out of the New York area. He was noted for being the person John Lennon trusted to do his guitar work! So, when he went into making his own guitars, everyone knew the guitar world was in for a treat! The guitars that came out of that shop were amazing and and very rare indeed!

This baby features an alder body for an extremely balanced tone! The neck is maple/maple with a super thin C profile! The 10" radius coupled with the 'fretless wonder1 frets enable low action and choke-free bending! The high mass brass bridge adds sustain and resonance! All of this gorgeous tone is grabbed by the EMG single coil active pickups.  DeMarino was known for his incredible inlay work and this fingerboard and headstock have exquisite inlays! There are some cheesy stickers loosly attached to the guitar.  We believe they could fairly easy removed.

Breedlove Calendar VI Revival OMM C/A Acoustic Guitar

Breeedlove Calendon VIBreeedlove Calendon VIBreeedlove Calendon VIThis is from the Breedlove custom shop and the G'A means cutaway and that its an artist guitar.

This revival OMM is the Alex DeGrassi model.  Its an dm body style with a soft cutaway-featuring a Sitka spruce top finished in sunburst with Honduran Mahogany back and sides.

Beautiful abalone top purfling and sound hole rosette with black body binding. Width at the nut is 1&3/4. Scale length is 25&1 2. Just a joy to play! A wonderful low profile neck with action that makes the guitar play like butter. Intonation is very consistent all of me way up the finger board. The guitar is up there with other high end acoustic guitars with a very resonant and complex sound, great depth, very harmonically rich and lots of sustain. Balance across the strings is perfect and as mentioned, the playability is fabulous. It can be used in standard tuning but also in alternate tunings.

Soloway Swan

Soloway Swan Soloway Swan Soloway Swan

Soloway

The 27-inch scale length is probably the most important design element to the Soloway Swan guitars, and the elongated neck that results from longer scale length is the inspiration for the model name "The Swan". The scale length (the distance from the nut to the bridge) is a critical characteristic of the design of any guitar.

The shorter 24 inch scale length that is typical of Gibson guitars make string easier to bend and contribute to the rich tone. The longer 25 inch scale length of Fender guitars help provide the twang and snap that has made them so useful for country players and the bite that has made them a staple of R&B. When PRS first rose to prominence, one of the characteristics that set them apart was a then unique 25 inch-scale length that emphasized mid-range tones and provided a compromise between the traditional Gibson and Fender formulae.

The 27-inch scale length of the Swan produces a remarkable level of clarity, presence, and articulation that most guitarists have never experienced. When playing a Swan, the notes just seem to jump off the instrument. The Swan Long Neck guitars are not baritones. While they can be very effective in lowered tunings, they are designed to be played at standard pitch.

Even with the longer scale length, the Swan was designed to be a very player friendly guitar. A very thin neck profile, a flat fingerboard radius and extra-large frets make the Swan extremely easy to play, so easy in fact that most people don’t even notice the extra length. Difficult chords and intervals are still easy to reach, even at the bottom of the neck.

The 7-string models get an even greater benefit from the longer scale length. Most 7-string guitars present a choice between two compromises. Either the added string is too loose, producing a muddy tone and poor articulation, or the string has to be too heavy which makes it both much louder than the other six strings and causes intonation issues at the bottom of the neck. The longer scale length of the Swan LN eliminates this compromise and allows the use of a string that produces a balanced tension and volume with the other 6 strings while also providing tonal clarity and proper intonation.

Taylor

Instruments currently built in El Cajon, CA since 1987 and in Tecate, Mexico since the mid-1990s. Distributed in North America by Taylor Guitars of El Cajon, CA and in Europe by Fender Musical Instrument Corporation (FMIC) located in Scottsdale, AZ. Previously produced in Lemon Grove, CA between 1974 through 1987.

Founding partners Bob Taylor, Steve Schemmer, and Kurt Listug were all working at the American Dream guitar repair shop in Lemon Grove, California, in the early 1970s. In 1974, the trio bought the shop and converted it into a guitar building factory. The company went through early growing pains throughout the late 1970s, but slowly and surely the guitars began catching on. In 1983, Listug and Taylor bought out Schemmer's share of the company, and re-incorporated. Fueled by sales of models such as the Grand Concert in 1984, the company expanded into new facilities in Santee, California (near El Cajon) in 1987. In 1989, Taylor bought their first CNC machine. In 2007, Taylor reorganized their guitar line to distinguish their acoustic, acoustic/electric, and electric lines from one another. All cutaway electric models remain in the number series, while acoustic models were renamed and organized according to their body shape. Taylor also has a complete custom shop open. In 2008, Fender began distributing Taylor Guitars in Europe.

Victor Baker Guitars

In the late 1990’s Vic started his journey into guitar making in Philadelphia. Vic really broke out in 2001 when he was commissioned for 8 guitars. This led to a buildup of recognition and an extremely busy building period that lasted until 2008. At this point after assembling well over 200 instruments, Vic’s guitars were in the hands of players around the world. These busy guitar shop years were a juggling act between building guitars and staying in the playing game as much as possible.

In late 2008, Vic was sidelined by a reoccuring injury to his elbow (caused by the grindwork of sanding and shaping the guitars) and was forced to take it easy. He had to limit 2008’s output but as of late 2009 he is healed up and back in commission. Right now Victor is thoroughly enjoying a full schedule of building, gigging, composing, recording and playing with his group. In January 2010 he took the plunge and relocated to NYC, and set up a new workshop in Brooklyn.

Gibson ES-125 1950s

Gibson ES 125 Gibson ES 125First available in 1941, the ES-125 was brought out as a successor to the ES-100. The ES-125 featured a single P-90 pickup, laminated body to mitigate feedback issues, and a wide profile for maximum acoustic playability. The original pickup had had 6 Alnico slug pole pieces. In 1950 the P90 transitioned to 6 adjustable poles between two Alnico 5 bar magnets. In the 1970s, all ES-125 models were discontinued and this well-liked electric guitar left the lineup to take a seat in Gibson guitar history.

Most players think it’s a great choice for jazz, blues and rockabilly. Among the more notable fans of the ES-125 are Sheryl Crow, George Thorogood, Wes Montgomery, and Izzy Stradlin. The guitar was well-loved due to its bright tone and playability, as well as the option of playing electrically or acoustically. It produces a welcoming tone that was preserved throughout its production history. Though Gibson ceased production in the 1970s the guitar still remains popular on the collector's circuit.

Malinoski Rodeo Electric Guitar

Malinoski Rodeo Malinoski Rodeo Malinoski RodeoFor more than 25 years, Malinoski has applied his Master of Fine Art degrees in Woodworking and Functional Design with his creative vision to construct instruments that are aesthetically influenced by 21stcentury design. “I developed a system to mount the electronic components onto a single wooden plate that attaches to the front of the guitar body,” says Malinoski. “There is virtually no neck pocket—the three-piece neck is glued and screwed to the top of the body and the pickup plate rises up to meet the height of the neck.”

This approach allows Malinoski to sculpt and contour both the front and the back of the guitar to accentuate its form and eliminate the need for cover plates. He says the combination of woods and mounting the pickups directly to the wooden plate produces a truer overall tone that’s enhanced by sensing vibrations transferred through the body, as well as the strings. As for the reasoning behind the three-piece neck, he believes it “creates a stronger, more stable structure and prevents the neck from dead spots because it is unlikely all three pieces have the same resonant frequency alignment.” Premier Guitar

Turner Model 1

Turner Model 1 Turner Model 1If you know Fleetwood Mac you have heard the incredible sound this guitar has and the crisp tone it produces. Since creating this beautiful work of art over 30 years ago for Lindsey Buckingham, the Turner Model 1 guitar has been at the forefront of playability tone and charm delivering an Old World aesthetic and modern, full-bodied tonal range. John Mayer is also an fan of the Turner Model 1 with its sophisticated electronics and overdrive harmonics.

Exploring the Model-1 Sound by Rick Turner

First, switch the EQ out. Then adjust the tone control all the way up and then blend back and forth between the magnetic and piezo pickups. This is very different from the usual Les Paul or Strat pickup selection, and acts more like a zoom lens on a camera ranging from the more mid focused sound of the magnetic pickup to the more acoustic and wide range piezo pickup, which actually has more deep lows as well as more extended highs. When you are in the "just magnetic pickup" position on the blend knob, try pulling up on the tone knob to access the single coil sound. That is a sound more akin to the middle pickup on a Strat.

When you've learned your way around without the EQ, find a tone you like and then kick in the EQ with the Boost/Cut knob turned about 1/2 of the way up from the middle detent position. This would put the knob line at the 9:00 position relative to the detent being 6:00. Then sweep the middle frequency knob to hear how the boost affects tone at different registers. For the full out sound, crank the EQ boost all the way up and repeat the frequency sweep. If you are playing into a tube amp or distortion unit, you can use the EQ to voice overdrive harmonics. Lesser boost is great for finding nice tones into a clean amp as well. While most folks don't use the "Cut" feature of the EQ, that, too, has some very nice uses.

In 1946, Lowell Kiesel founded Kiesel Electronics in Los Angeles, California. Three years later, the Kiesel family settled in Covina, California, and began the original catalog business of manufacturing and distributing lap steel guitars, small tube amps, and pickups. The Carvin trademark was derived from Kiesel´s two oldest sons, Carson and Gavin. Guitars were originally offered in kit form, or by parts since 1949; Carvin began building complete guitars in 1956. By 1978, the glued set-neck design replaced the bolt-on necks. The majority of the current guitar and bass models currently feature a neck-through design.

Carvin has always been a mail-order-only company, and offers players a wide range of options on the individual models. Even though they can´t be tried out before they´re bought, Carvin offers a ten-day money-back guarantee. Because Carvin sells factory direct, these guitars are not stocked in music stores. It is suggested that a current copy of their catalog be requested (free of charge) to find out more about the company´s current models and pricing. Carvin also used to have a factory store in Sherman Oaks.

Carvin offers a full range of guitar and bass replacement parts in their full line catalog.

Fender Jaguar 1966 - Sold

JaguarJaguarJaguarReleased in 1962, the Jaguar was Leo Fender's feature-laden top-of-the-line model. It was built from ideas first incorporated in the Jazzmaster, with a similar "offset waist" body and "floating tremolo" system. Unlike the Jazzmaster, the Jaguar was fitted with a shorter 24-inch scale, 22-fret neck and featured smaller single-coil pickups with notched side plates that improved RF shielding, making the Jaguar less prone to interference than the Stratocaster or Telecaster.

The Jaguar has a dual-circuit setup, one circuit for lead and another for rhythm, each with separate controls, allowing for two pre-set tone and volume settings between which the guitarist could rapidly switch. The lead circuit consists of three switches and two dials on the lower bout: the first two switches are on/off switches for the neck and bridge pickups, respectively, while the third switch engages a capacitor that serves as a high-pass filter. The rhythm circuit, set into operation when the upper bout switch is flicked upwards, has individual volume and tone rollers but no option to choose between pickups. This rhythm circuit has a bassier, neck-pickup only range.

The Jaguar was discontinued in 1975.  S/N 1OCT65B
