2016 Lentz DL90 1-Piece Ash

$3,499
Scott and Scott Jr. of Lentz guitars are great people. They know how much I love their work and often think of me when they have a guitar to spare.

2009 Parker Fly Mojo Midi

$2,999
If you are a fan of Parker guitars as I am, the demise of the brand is quite depressing. Apparently, U.S. Music Corp and parent company Jam Industries have decided that there are better profit margins in some of their other product lines. Given this development, the Parker guitars already made are all there will be and don't be surprised if the prices of Parkers soar in the months and years...

2015 Gretsch® Custom Shop Stephen Stern Masterbuilt '59 Penguin Relic®

$4,199
I've never been a huge fan of Gretsch guitars. I've played a few vintage Gretsch instruments, but their playability and condition were often less than ideal. I've also played some of the more recent Japanese-built models, but they just didn't suit me.
