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.

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...

1997 Gibson EC-10

The Gibson EC-10 Standard is a Jumbo-style guitar with a solid Sitka spruce top, solid maple sides, and an arched maple back; it is configured with a soft cutaway thinline body and includes factory electronics. Gibson introduced the line in 1997 only to close it out the next year, so this is a relatively rare model. This particular instrument’s serial number (92337023) indicates it was made in...

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,...

1976 Alvarez-Yairi DY-78 "Herringbone Tri-back"

$895
When Kazuo Yairi began designing and hand-crafting guitars in the 1960’s, he was not trying to create a “mid-range” alternative to the best American guitars; he was consciously competing with Martin, Gibson, Guild, and the “boutiques” for the higher end guitar market in the U.S. This DY-78 “Herringbone Tri-back” model is an example of the quality and sound which he was able to produce using the...
