24/7 by e-mail. I'm old; I don't sleep much.

Payments by Paypal, cashier’s checks, money orders, or personal checks are acceptable, but all payments must clear my bank before the guitar will be shipped. I will CONSIDER reasonable offers, even including installment payments and trade-ins, but generally since I already attempt to price my guitars very competitively, unusual deals must be unusually sweet.

From henceforth [that's how retired English teachers talk], insurance and shipping to the lower 48 states is FREE; shipping costs elsewhere will be negotiated as necessary. I have sold guitars to Russia, Japan, Australia, and over 50 other countries, as well as almost every state in the USA. Since some of my guitars travel thousands of miles, I take care to use lots of packing materials, protect the neck inside the case, and of course de-tune the strings.

I make every effort to describe and illustrate each guitar and case with scrupulous accuracy. However, many of my instruments are well-played vintage items which are many years old, and I am not a luthier. One should assume that any guitar will require some set-up to satisfy your personal requirements, and that not every flaw or ding will be seen/recognized/described in the listing. Thus the return of an instrument will not be accepted unless it can be shown that it was egregiously misrepresented in this listing. Please read the listing carefully, check out the pictures, and ask any questions you might have before offering to buy.

1965 Guild® M-20

$1,595
The M-20 was one of Guild's least expensive guitars in the 1950's and '60's, but--while not a rare model per se--has become one of the company's most sought-after vintage instruments in recent years. The highly influential English singer/songwriter Nick Drake is known to have played the M-20 extensively and is pictured with one on the cover of the classic “Bryter Layter” album, so the model is...

2008 Guild® F-412

$2,295
This wonderful Guild F-412 twelve-string guitar was made in 2008, judging from its serial number (TL183009) and the Guild website. It features a jumbo body based on the prestigious F-50 six-string design and was among the most acclaimed 12-strings in America until it was discontinued in 1987 (and re-issued as the JF-65M-12, and again as the F-412 from 2002 on). As such, this particular guitar has...

1966 Gibson Southern Jumbo

$795
The Gibson Southern Jumbo/Country Western model guitars were created in 1942 during WW II, according to some as a perk specifically for the Gibson distributors below the Mason-Dixon Line. As with many of Gibson’s models—especially during the early war years--there are many variations in the specs over the original 36 years of production, but the bottom line remained the same: it was and is a big...

1976 Guild® D-25M

$495
Made in the fabled Westerly, Rhode Island, plant, this classic Bluegrass D-25M dreadnought has been dominating lesser instruments for 41 years, judging from its serial number (134933) and the Guild website. It has been played regularly, and it has the resonance of its aged woods to prove it. The dark reddish finish makes it stand out in a crowd, but it’s the huge sound that will make other...

1968 Guild® MARK III

$695
According to The Blue Book of Acoustic Guitars, the Guild Mark III classical guitar was manufactured from 1961 to 1986. Gruhn’s Guide and Vintage Guitar Price Guide basically agree, although there is some disagreement as to specific features. Like most classical guitars, it’s smaller than the dreadnought or jumbo series, measuring 14 ½” at the lower bout, with a scale of 25 ½.” Like its rival,...
