Yummy, yummy ORANGES

We’ve got some great used Orange Heads and Cabs in right now. Consider yourself invited to come down and plug in one of these juicy rockers.

We just got in three really great ones.
The one in Lake Placid Blue is a parts body with a USA Stratocaster neck and two Curtis Novak pickups.  It’s a roller too, honey…
Next is a CIJ Jazzmaster in Mary Kay.  No explanation necessary there.
Finally, Ol’ swamp thing.  It is a ’64 body with a nice 60’s C shape neck, a Novak bridge pickup and a Duncan Hot in the neck position.
Come check ’em out.

Vintage Jenco Vibraphone

We have a beautiful set of vintage Jenco Vibes (also known as “vibrabells” in the early days of Jenco) on our floor right now.  A 2.5 octave from C-F with 1.5″ x 0.5″ Aluminum bars, a perfect size for the space conscious New Yorker.  The motor is in awesome condition and they sound amazing.  With a Black Diamond Pearl finish, these will be a great addition to someone’s studio or music project.

Greco Thunderbird

This thing is amazing!!!  Not only do we see very few of these, but this one plays especially great and has a very hot pickup in it that makes it scream.  We always love seeing Japanese made Greco copies come through shop and I’m sure this one won’t last long.  Come check it out before its gone!

Nice Tan Line…

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.
