It's time to thin the herd a bit. I'm not interested in trades at this time as I'm gathering funds for new acquisitions. Unless otherwise specified, free shipping in CONUS. I can cover shipping overseas as long as you handle any import costs on your side. PM me if interested.

Guitars: All terrific guitars in their own way, but I don't play them often enough - time for them to be enjoyed by someone will play them.

Fender Deluxe Thinline Telecaster (2017) Candy Apple Red with Fender American Vintage '64 neck, stock Fender Noisless pickups - $1200

Fender Duo Sonic (MIM) (2017) Capri Orange, stock - $450

Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s (2017) Sherwood Green, upgraded with Fender Classic Series '50s Stratocaster's stock pickups, sci-fi themed Greasy Groove pickguard and back cover. Because I never used the 4th position (Neck + Middle pickups), I had the 4th position re-wired to be Neck + Bridge for that Duo Sonic kind of tone. I do this for all my strats. If you prefer the original 4th position, you'll have to have it re-wired back. - Sold!

Squier Vintage Modified Surf Stratocaster (CII) (2012 - 2015) Sonic Blue with matching headstock - upgraded with Fender Original '57/'62 pickups, sci-fi themed Greasy Groove pickguard and back cover. Like my wonderful Squier J Mascis JM, this guitar is a sleeper hit - stays in tune as long as my US-made Fender guitars. Like the Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster above - because I never used the 4th position (Neck + Middle pickups), I had the 4th position re-wired to be Neck + Bridge for that Duo Sonic kind of tone. I do this for all my strats. If you prefer the original 4th position, you'll have to have it re-wired back. - Sold!

Squier Vintage Modified Mustang (CII) (2012-2015) Fiesta Red, upgraded with a Warmoth Modified Mustang bridge - $250

Harley Benton TE-90FLT VW Deluxe Series T-Style (2017) stock, really nice, well-made affordable guitars from Thomann's Guitars in Germany - likely not worthwhile for someone overseas, but a decent deal for CONUS folks. I've got a Harley Benton JM-style and a Harley Benton Mustang- style guitars from Thomann guitars with a couple of Harley Benton Gibson Les Paul-style guitars arriving in May. - Sold!

Amps:

Gomez El Sonido 6G6GB Blonde Head & Cab (Fender Bassman-based) - 50-Watt amp with 2 Celestion G12 Vintage 30s 8 ohms speakers, 4ohm head, 4x JJ 12AX7 pre-amp tubes and 2x Tung Sol 5881 power tubes. The last owner had one upgrade modification done to get the amp's tone closer to the early 60's Fender Bassman sound by switching out the output transformer to a Mercury Magnet. Other than that, it's all stock. Price now dropped from $1400 to $1200!

I find myself oddly tempted by the Harley Benton. Tell me more.

Hey Tim! Here are some links:

A couple of the vids demo clean and dirt, you may want to fast forward past some of the chatter (I like these guys' vids)

Nice non-finished neck - super comfortable. Nice chimey Filter'Tron type pickups. I'm at a point where I have just too many guitars that aren't getting the love they need. Also, I decided I'm not a reverse headstock kind of guy. I thought about swapping out the neck for a Fender neck, but the stock neck is actually quite solid and lovely.

Oh, and unlike the Cabronitas, the HB has a tone knob!

Amazing bang for the buck on all these Harley Bentons. I've got 3 so far (incl. this one) and they are all solid.
