THE GUITAR ORPHANAGE
Below is our collection of guitars that are vintage, a little odd, misfits, a little banged up, slightly used, or just plain groovy and in need of a warm and caring home. Please contact us for an adoption application to see if you qualify to provide one of these beauties a home.
2003 Limited Edition
This officially-licensed collaboration with the Airstream trailer company is also a signature model for the band Trailer Park Troubadours, whose logo graces the headstock. It features a solid maple body, rosewood neck, Grover tuners, EMG HZ humbuckers, and a volume knob in the "wheel" that doubles as a push-pull pickup selector switch. Comes with original gig bag!
$600 with custom gig bag
FENDER CUSTOM SHOP STRATOCASTER
DICK DALE Signature Model
Alder body, beautiful maple reverse-headstock neck, rosewood fretboard, three Custom '50s pickups with special switching, volume knob, synchronized tremolo (includes whammy bar not pictured). The flipped headstock reverses the lengths of the strings and, combined with the reversed angle of the bridge pickup, recreates the sound of a left-strung right-handed guitar.
$3500 with case
'68 Reverse Headstock Reissue, 2001 USA
This model was introduced as the 'Voodoo Strat,' a Jimi Hendrix signature model based on his famous Woodstock axe. After the Hendrix estate withdrew their licensing, Fender removed his name but kept the killer guitar! Alder body, maple neck. The flipped headstock reverses the lengths of the strings, and, combined with the reversed angle of the bridge pickup, recreates the sound of a left-strung right-handed guitar.
$1200 with case
Here is a 2013 Zero Prototype... spalted maple top, titanium alloy back and sides... unlike anything you've seen or heard before. Built by hand in Seattle by Gene Nygaard, this guitar features tones that are truly unique to this guitar. Twin humbucker pickups with one volume and one blend knob are the only controls, the rest is in your hands (and your pedals and amp).

Comes with MONO Vertigo gig bag, a $250 value
