Gibson

2012 Gibson HB093M ES-330 VOS LH
Memphis with Custom Shop Certificate

This has been closeted for most of its life.

Having owned it for the past 5-years, it has rarely seen the light of day apart from the occasional try-out.

In absolutely stunning condition and being a rare leftie, this would grace any guitarists collection.

Comes with original paperwork (I hate using “Candy”) and custom Gibson hard case.

Watkins / WEM 1960's WEM Control HR30 - 30W Valve Amp Head

This is one of the RARE amplifiers to come out of the Watkins stable and is rarely seen in the marketplace. This one has been meticulously serviced with any suspect components being replaced, which included all the electrolytics.

This is a fantastic valve head with Presence, Tremolo, Vibrato, Hi Lo and Off settings that give a great variety of sound options.
The valves have all been tested on a valve tester and are in excellent condition.

The ECC83s are all vintage Mullards’, the EL84s are a mix of vintage makes and ideally could be replaced with a quad matched set; however, since each EL84 has its own bypass cathode resistor it isn't too critical to have well matched sets, unlike when multiple cathodes share a single resistor.

Here is a potted description:

Company: WEM Watkins Electric Music Ltd London
Era: 1960s
Type: Control HR30
30 Watt, full valve guitar amplifier head with four mixable inputs: microphone, bass guitar, rhythm guitar, lead guitar
Push switches give the following effects: Presence, Vibrato, Hi-Lo, Tremolo and Off
The amplifier is loaded with 6 x ECC83 and 4 x EL84.

Fender

HotRod Deville 2x12 Guitar Amp Combo - MADE IN USA.

The DeVille features a 60-watt valve amplifier with three 12AX7 preamp valves and two 6L6 output valves. It has a 2-button footswtich.
This amps history is unknown, but I am at a loss to explain how pristine this looks for a 1997 unit, which leads me to think it has been closeted for literally all its life and there is a reason for this thought…….
……………..At some stage in its short early life it suffered cabinet damage, which has now been carefully repaired and hence made better than good. It did not affect the chassis and the electronics are all 100% (Bias sits at a steady 60mV and all the [Fender] valves tested at 100%) with a control panel that looks brand new (hence my earlier comments). The cabinet itself (apart from the damaged areas, which can be seen in the images) again looks brand new – hence my closeted reasoning.
The date of this was driven mainly by the P.T. and O.T. codes, whose images are included, together with the Fender rebadged Eminence speaker code of (037617).
The usual 2x12 setup now includes a Jensen C12N speaker, which has the same, if not better, qualities of its Fender partner.
Original User Manual included.

Stratocaster American Standard - Made in the USA.

2011/12 in Sunburst complete with Fender Hard Case and original paperwork (I hate using “Candy”).

The Stratocaster family tree has grown tall and wide over the years, but the Fender American Standard Strat carries on the original legacy of the model in its purest form. It is an axe that can do it all, the swiss-army-knife guitar, but still has enough signature tone in its glassy, bell-like attack to have a world unto itself. For anyone looking to have only one guitar, the Fender American Standard Stratocaster has to be part of the discussion.

JCM2000 TSL100 Valve Head

It's like having 3 separate amps in one box, hence the naming – “Triple Super Lead”.

Having 3 independent channels (Clean, Crunch and Lead) puts amazing control, flexibility, and tone variations at your fingertips.

From sparkling clean to full-blown Marshall roar, this all-valve 100W head delivers it all.
Each channel features its own volume, gain, and EQ. Master controls include tone shift for beefing up tone at low volumes, Accutronics spring reverb, effects loop mix control, speaker emulation DI circuit for silent recording, virtual power reduction that gives you a glorious, saturated power amp feel without cranking it up to 10.

This has had 2 days of soaking for at least 4-hours per day and as the images show the bias has remained steady at around the 85VA mark (Marshall recommend 90mV.

Everything functions as it should, which includes its 5-button foot switch.

Cabinet has the usual handling dings in it, but overall looks very clean indeed.

Shipping would be an additional cost and it would be sent in a Marshall box, but would prefer personal collection, when at least the amp can be seen working.

BassBreaker Valve Amp Combo 1x12

The Fender Bassbreaker 30R is a 1x12 tube guitar amplifier combo that's based on the popular Bassbreaker 15, but has a few extras of its own on board as well.

There are two channels giving you the choice between crystal-clear, clean tones or heavy overdrive and each channel has its own tone control.

To add more depth to your sound you can make use of the built-in hall reverb and thanks to the FX loop, you can easily add external effects pedals too.

This Fender amp is equipped with no fewer than four EL84 power amp tubes and three 12AX7 preamp tubes. The Celestion G12V-70 speaker is responsible for handling the 30 Watts of power this tube combo is capable of producing. It has an excellent response which means you'll hear all of the nuances in your playing.

If you're looking for a great tube amp for stage or studio use, Fender's Bassbreaker 30R is great for either situation.

All in all a lovely looking and performing amp that is barely 2-years old and still retains its original shipping container.

Comes with all paperwork, cables and multi-foot switch.

All valves tested A-OK on a valve tester and everything performs as it should.

NOTE: The top cardboard image placed on top of the amp showing the various setups possible should be removed before use since it covers the all-important vent holes for the amp.

Les Paul Style Synth / Effector Electric Guitar with Built-In Effects

These fabulous guitars were made in the eighties in Korea and based on the Les Paul but with built-in effects. They are vastly under-priced, but the rise is just beginning due to their uniqueness.

This one is finished in sunburst with twin humbucker style pickups.

The body, neck and head-stock are fully bound making this a quality guitar.

The bridge is a tune-o-matic and with a stop bar tailpiece.

The effects are controlled by a 9-volt battery (PP9 not included) housed in the back of the body.

There is a volume control which is also an on/off switch, plus tone and speed controls.

The effects have an on/off switch and a phase in/out switch.

The effects are echo/tremolo/wah/whirlwind and a fuzz on/off switch - all in working order.

There is a headphone socket, which originally would have come with an active headphone set, which is the only way for it to function. Most times this is never used.

This guitar has two areas of damage, which can be see in the images. It looks as though it was resting on a couple of sharp stands. This is the only real damage with the rest in stunning condition for its age.

Frets are all good and neck is dead straight. Everything is original and the guitar sounds awesome through an amp.

Comes complete with a gorgeous HISCOX Hard case.
