Prince played these MESA amps. Not amps like this or of this brand name but these actual amps. During a moment in time these pieces of equipment were attached to Prince and Electrified. So yeah, When I got the time, I took the time to visit these and show some love and respect. You might think that is strange or mundane, but for me it was A CLEAR MOMENT, a moment of continuity and awe.

NOTHING says “Christmas” like guitar shopping at Toronto’s much-loved vintage guitar boutique, Capsule Music!:
Wow…I had never even heard of this model before…it’s a 1981 Gibson Firebird CMT. I like Firebirds enough normally, but this one is really interesting and only $2,350!
Refinished 1967 Epi Casinos. Yes, refins, but EXCELLENT refins! And the price reflects the mods nicely at $1,999 - like ½ to 1/3 of the price of an all original 67 Casino! Unleash your inner John Lennon!
Cool vintage resonators! On the right is a 1921 National Style 1 tenor at $2,100, and on the left is a 1930 National Style 1 mandolin at $2,400.
Too quote David Lindley… "if I had money, I tell you what I’d do, I’d go downtown and buy a 3-30 or two! I’m crazy ‘bout a 3-30!“ (see below …) It’s a lovely Gibson USA ES-330 in blue - a rare colour even for this modern example. $2,300
Nice, but recent. ES-335 in "faded” finish.
I think someone boogered on this Boogie! :D
Hofner basses - paired with #2 above and unleash your inner Betales!
1964 Thunderbird IV. $7,000!
For my mate guitarlust! A lovely lefty Les (Paul)!
