Welcome to My Cool Guitars. On the My Collection tab are pictures of, well, my cool guitars. Most I still have, some are now happily owned by others.
On the right are some  guitars I’m currently selling to reduce duplication in my collection.
On the About Me tab, you can find how to contact me if you are interested in any of my toys. Because of spambots, comments have been turned off. 
On the Useful Info tab, I’ve been collecting information sent to me or that I’ve gathered of interest to the guitar collecting community.
NOTE! GoDaddy Problem makes some images not display. Refresh the page a few times and they should display. 

For sale: Kawaii Moonsault MLY-140

The famous “My Cool Guitars” icon! Top of the line, super rare, pristine condition. Incredibly flexible guitar with all the switching options. $3200

For sale: James Tyler Variaxe JTV69


Used twice for a show that I needed a sitar and banjo sound on. Incredibly flexible instrument – you can get sounds from am acoustic to a 12-string to a strat to a tele to a 335 to a Les Paul and more. If you play in a cover band its a must-have. Mint, better condition than on a guitar-store wall. $750



For sale: Yamaha SG2000 burst

The Yamaha SG2000 differs from the 3000 in that it has a sustain block bridge (a piece of brass underneath to improve sustain), and doesn’t have as fancy of a binding. Very good condition and a steal at $1800.

Note: The Midi pickup is no longer on the guitar, and the pick guard is back on. The Roland pickup did not require any modifications to the guitar, so the guitar is back to an all-original condition.


For sale: Yamaha SG3000 Black

Sold to a really nice guy named Dave from the UK who came to NY to meet me and pick up his new baby!

Almost museum quality, 1st run and very rare: $3500

Yamaha SGs are simply incredible instruments. I’ve had 7, which is a bit of overkill, so I’m reducing the collection.

For sale: Yamaha SG3000 in Gold


The Yamaha SG3000 and its twin the SBG3000 are simply one of the best guitars every built, period. They were so expensive to make Yamaha lost money on them, but kept them in their line as a flagship.

This one is in very good shape, all original except for the addition of an additional strap button. So, you can change the way the guitar balances to fit your needs by choosing one of the two strap buttons.

Tacoma ER22CE Acoustic-Electric for sale


This is a pre-Fender Tacoma! 100% solid wood made in the USA, no laminates on a guitar of this level. Tacoma owned thousands of acres and grew their own trees. This gave them a HUGE advantage over Taylor and Martin which have to buy their lumber. Tacoma was able to produce a much higher quality guitar at a lower price because of this. They grew to become the #3 acoustic guitar maker before being bought out by Fender.

This guitar is a little Jumbo with LR Baggs Duet electronics. Near mint condition! The body has 0 flaws, and the frets are 9.5/10 condition. The case is super high quality and plush. Also includes the Tacoma Warranty Card (Lifetime Warranty!, honored by Fender) and the Tacoma catalog from that year.

Warm, articulate, responds immaculately to finger picking or hard strumming. Projects well and balanced throughout the spectrum. I haven’t heard a guitar under $2500 that can compete.

Specs from their web site:

Solid rosewood back & sides, 4 1/8″ body depth, solid cedar top w/4 color wood rosette, venetian style cutaway, 15 5/8″ lower bout, 20 fret ebony fingerboard w/1 3/4″ nut, ebony bridge, ivoroid body binding & inlaid headstock logo,  black tuning machines, gloss finish. Designed by Tacoma & Laurence Juber.
