Wilco Selling Vintage Guitars, Soviet-Built Oddities, and Mystery Pedals on Reverb


Wilco are listing over a dozen new items on their Reverb shop, which they launched in February 2023. Among the offerings from the Loft—their famous Chicago studio—are vintage guitars, Soviet-built oddities, signed posters, and mystery boxes of effects pedals. One of those rarities is a 1962 Martin F-55 from Jeff Tweedy’s personal collection. “It’s a rare bird. You don’t see these in the wild too often,” said the Loft studio manager Mark Greenberg. “I’ll be honest, I’m surprised Jeff is selling this one.”

Other offerings include Tweedy’s 1960s Framus “Big 18” double-neck electric guitar; a six-keyboard yellow Wurlitzer MKS-470; a Harmony Buck Owens H169 “American” red, white, and blue acoustic guitar; and Nels Cline’s 1950s flower-adorned lap steel by an unknown maker. Wilco’s shop reopens with the new listings on July 18. Learn more at Reverb.

This Friday, Wilco will release their new Hot Sun Cool Shroud EP and perform at Solid Sound Festival. After that, they’re staying on the road for their ongoing summer tour in support of last year’s album Cousin, where they’re joined by openers Leah Senior, Cut Worms, and Katie Cruel.
