1) absolutely primo 1946 gibson j-45 neck only….AMAZING condition and original finish ….1500 firm…this could be a life changer for the right person/repairman out there

2) 1964 fender vibroverb 1x15 combo amp. As you know this model is BY FAR the most coveted of the entire blackface line by collectors…basically just a pro reverb with a 15” speaker, for twice the money. 4500 firm and i WILL NOT SHIP…you gotta come to larry’s house to get this if you want it. 7/10 cosmetic condition…has definitely been played and gigged. All original trannies and speaker…serviced by Ebo…sounds absolutely lovely

3) 1959 watkins westminster…small and EXTREMELY stylish little british tube combo amp….sounds good but could sound GREAT with a bit of tweaking and TLC….Sold as is for 1300 firm and I WILL NOT SHIP. Nice sounding tremolo circuit
