This gorgeous Lentz Traditional T was completed and shipped directly to me by my friends at Lentz back in May of 2016. One of our best customers bought this beauty almost as soon as it was listed.

2007 Vinetto SC 50 BG Artifact

$2,199
Vinetto guitars are built by the very talented luthier Vince Cunetto, former aging master of Fender's Custom Shop before he retired to build his own instruments.

2013 Tom Anderson Hollow Drop Top Koa

$2,999

2016 Gibson Chambered 58 LP Gloss w/ Contoured Heel 7.4 lbs!

$3,999
For an old fart like me, the LP style guitars I play need to be very light. My old shoulders just can't take 9+ pound LP's any more and I am quite fond of the slightly more woody sound that many chambered guitars offer. I also prefer my LP's with Gibson's newer Custom Bucker pickups, along with the many other improvements that the Custom Shop instituted starting back in 2013. ​ The Les Paul...
