24/7 by e-mail: akmgj@bellsouth.net. 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 $55 due to constantly rising shipping costs unless a specific listing says otherwise; 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.

2017 Gibson Maestro

$125
If you don't usually think of Gibson as an entry-level acoustic guitar company, they are out to change your mind with a wide selection of quality instruments at affordable prices like this one. This Gibson Maestro, for example, is a standard "dreadnought" size instrument with a beautiful high gloss black finish, Spruce top, and laminated Mahogany back and sides. Other features include a very...

1975 Guild Mark IV Padauk

$1,095
According to The Blue Book of Acoustic Guitars, the Guild Mark IV 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, perhaps because Guild used maple, pearwood, rosewood, and padauk for the backs and sides at various times in this 25-year period. Like most classical...

1993 Martin J-40

$2,795
The Martin J-40 acoustic guitar is surely one of the most beautiful factory guitars ever made, enhanced with the famous Martin quality and sound. This particular guitar was made in 1993 according to its serial number (523521), and while I don’t have the Martin production numbers for this model, I am confident that this is one of very few examples of this classic beauty. Featuring top-grade solid...

1965 Gibson B-25

$1,795
According to The Blue Book of Acoustic Guitars, the Gibson B series of acoustic guitars was the successor to the LG series largely phased out in the early 1960s. Generally speaking, the B-15 replaced the LG-0, the B-20 replaced the LG-1, the B-45 became a larger version of the LG-2, and the X-braced B-25 replaced the LG-2. (The 12-string Gibson LG-12 was made in very limited quantities from...

1983 Alvarez-Yairi DY-68

$995
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-68 “Rambling Twelve” model is an example of the quality and sound which he was able to produce using the...

2003 Martin D-18

$1,795
The Martin D-18 is the Holy Grail for many acoustic guitar players, preferring its mahogany sound to the famous D-28’s rosewood. It is a full-sized dreadnought, with a 15.625” lower bout, 11.75” at the lower bout, and a 25.4” scale, and has more power throughout its range than most jumbos. And of course it has all the legendary quality and mystique implied by the Martin logo proudly emblazoned on...
