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.

~1965 Gibson J-50 Adj.

$2,895
I have been encouraged to list my entire current inventory of guitars, even though it is constantly changing and I have not yet taken pictures or written full descriptions of many of them. As you can see, I generally sell only Martin, Gibson, Guild, Taylor, Larrivee, and Alvarez-Yairi guitars because most of these models are made so well that they tend to increase in value and in the complexity...

1964 Guild M-20

$1,995
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...

1989 Alvarez-Yairi DY-97

$1,495
When Kazuo Yairi began designing and hand-crafting his steel-string guitars in the 1960’s, he was deliberately competing with Martin, Gibson, and Guild for the higher end guitar market in the U.S. This DY-97 “Herringbone” model is an example of the superb quality and sound which Yairi was able to produce using the highest grade materials, the best Japanese craftsmen, and his own modifications of...

2003 Martin 000-18

$2,295
The Martin D-18 is the Holy Grail for many acoustic guitar players, preferring its mahogany sound to the famous Martin D-28’s rosewood. However, the dreadnought size and shape can be a challenge physically, and a player doesn’t always need the hard-driving sound for which the D-18 is justly famous. The 000-18 is not a full-sized dreadnought, with a 15.125” lower bout and a 24.9” scale, and is...

1965 Gibson LG-0

$495
This 1965 Gibson would have been (maybe even was) very comfortable at Woodstock, or the first Newport Folk Festival, maybe when Pete Seeger tried to unplug Bob Dylan's electric guitar. The LG-0 was created in 1958, presumably for the coffee-house concert-in-the-park kind of atmosphere of the early folk revival. Somewhat smaller than the dreadnoughts and jumbos, it had a 24 ¾" scale and was only...

2002 D'Angelico Vestax NYL6

$2,495
John D’Angelico hand-built guitars in his New York shop for some 40 years until his death in 1964. His superb craftsmanship and fine sense of aesthetics raised his instruments to a level not obtainable in factory-made guitars. His lifetime production was around 1150 guitars and his premier model was the New Yorker, of which he made about 300 examples. Late in his life, he concentrated primarily...

1952 Martin 0-17T

$2,195
The C. F. Martin Company created a number of Concert (0 Series), parlor, and smaller guitars, starting in the 1890’s and continuing until the 1990s. According to The Blue Book of Acoustic Guitars, the O-17T specifically was made from 1932 to 1960 (George Gruhn’s Guide to Vintage Guitars agrees, so it must be so). This post-World War II version of the 0-17T has a solid mahogany top, while the...

1998 Martin HD-28

$1,995
If you’ve ever wanted to add the power of a Martin D-28 to your gig list or repertoire, or if you’re intrigued by the possibility of owning a legitimately rare and collectible Martin, this may be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. In fact, you may want to sell all your other six-string guitars—whatever they are!—in order to own this veteran HD-28. This Martin HD-28’s serial number...

1971 Martin 00-21

$2,795
One of Martin's longest-running production models, the 00-21 was introduced in 1898 and has remained a 12-fretter with a slotted headstock for decades after most models were given 14-fret necks and solid headstocks. The Martin 00-21 has three important features that fingerstyle players really enjoy: the wider 1.78” nut width, the shorter 24.9” scale allowed by the 12 frets, and scalloped top...

2010 Martin 000-35 Custom Shop

$2,795
The Martin D-35 dreadnought acoustic guitar is perhaps the most beautiful factory guitar ever made, enhanced with the famous Martin quality and sound. Starting in 1965 with the Brazilian Rosewood version, it was clearly designed as a custom rosewood parallel to the classic D-28. Although the Braz gave way to the more available Indian Rosewood in 1969—the Martin commitment to this custom concept...

1961 Gibson J-45 Adj.

$2,995
The Gibson J-45 is—despite Martin’s claim—America’s guitar, the signature instrument of the serious player in jams, gigs, hoedowns, hootenannies, parties, and front porches since the 1940’s. The original J-45 has a slope-shouldered jumbo body (until 1969) with a solid spruce top and mahogany back, sides, and neck. Since World War II it has a 14/20-fret rosewood finger board with pearl dot inlay...
