1996 Dudenbostel D-18S

$11,995
Delightfully opened up, this 1996 D-18S from Lynn Dudenbostel lends weight to the argument that older equals better. The voice speaks to the hundreds of hours of tunes that have already gone into these fine tonewoods: dry, cracklin' bass from the Mahogany back and sides and a crisp set of treble strings with a toothy bite (a la Adirondack Spruce). With the 12-fret neck and Slope Dreadnought...

She's basically a tour of the custom features Greenfield offers: fanned frets, 7 strings, elevated fingerboard, arm and rib bevels, pinless bridge, soundport, Spalted Maple and Abalone rosette.

2007 Applegate SJ

$7,495
If we could play guitars as fine as this 2007 Applegate SJ all day, it wouldn't be called work. Brian bedecked this SJ with all the bells and whistles: Florentine Cutaway, Koa bindings and arm bevel, African Blackwood back and sides, European Spruce top, and the piéce de resistance, a lute-style soundport in the upper bout! Applegate voiced this SJ with a fingerstylist in mind; listen...

1995 Olson SJ

$14,995
This 1995 Olson SJ continues in the tradition of all of Jim Olson's guitars, which is to say that this Olson is a fingerstyle fanatics favorite (or soon to be) weapon of choice. The string-to-string balance is superb, and the play feel is gossamer. Dropped into lowered tunings, the strings remain crisp and responsive; let those bass strings rumble when you can, because the lower depths have...
