Wilco Selling Rare, Vintage Guitars, Pedals Through Reverb

A treasure trove for fans and fellow musicians...

Wilco are selling out tonnes of rare gear, vintage guitars and effects pedals through Reverb.

The band host their own Reverb shop, an online repository for some of their recording equipment. Wilco famously operate from The Loft studio in Chicago, renowned for its in-depth section of vintage analogue gear.

From July 18th fans will be able to buy some of these, with Wilco selling off a selection of rare guitars, obscure effects pedals, and more.

A host of rarities have been listed, including Jeff Tweedy’s 1962 Martin F-55 – an instantly recognisable instrument that you don’t often see in the wild. “It’s a rare bird…you don’t see these in the wild too often,” The Loft studio manager Mark Greenberg says of the guitar. “I’ll be honest, I’m surprised Jeff is selling this one.”

There’s also some Soviet built oddities, and also several acoustics, electrics, and acoustic-electrics modded with rubber bridges.

Remarkably, you can also pick up a six-keyboard Wurlitzer – built in the ’60s-’70s it has six keyboards connected around a small, fold-up table, allowing six people to play at once. 

The Wilco Reverb shop opens from July 18th.

Wilco will release their new EP ‘Hot Sun Cool Shroud’ on June 28th; the band are currently on tour across North America.
