We just got in a ’68 Gibson ES-345 that is nothing short of amazing. The early patent number pickups are tasty – this guitar can do anything you want and is such a pleasure to play. I try not to play favorites and all, but it’s my new favorite.
Check out that ’63 Bassman that’s parked beside it. It’s just sitting there with a matching 212 – no big deal. Two bad machines.

My personal favorite era in Fender amp history.
Two Browns and an extremely rare blonde Bandmaster 112 thrown in to up the “holy shit” factor.
The 1962 Pro is pretty much unbeatable with its mighty 15 inch speaker. Mids! low mids! Hit it with a P90 and slay. Then there’s the little guy – 1961 Princeton. These two are equipped with arguably the best tremolo circuit ever put into an amplifier. Finally, there’s the 1963 Bandmaster 112 combo. Such a beautiful amp, and incredibly rare. It’s so exciting to have amps like these around.
