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.

1999 Guild JF-55-12

$1,995
The Guild JF-55-12 was made from 1991 to 2001 in the Westerly, R.I., plant, basically replacing the F-512 according to the Guild website; it is considered by many to be the greatest 12-string acoustic of all time.

1983 Guild F-512

$2,195
The Guild F-512 was made in the Westerly, R.I., plant, at first as a special order model to supplement the slightly smaller F-312 and then standardized as a response to Gibson’s super jumbo guitars; it is considered by many to be the greatest factory 12-string acoustic of all time. The serial number of this particular guitar (FL100441) indicates that it was the first of the only 37 F-512s...

1964 Guild M-20

$1,795
The M-20 was one of Guild's least expensive guitars in the 1950's and '60's, but it 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 linked in the popular...

1979 Guild D-25M

$795
Made in the fabled Westerly, Rhode Island, plant, this classic Bluegrass D-25M dreadnought has been dominating lesser instruments for 40 years, judging from its serial number (209076 = 1979) 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...

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...
