2015 Astrand Guitars Å-OM

$9,265
The voice of this Åstrand Å-OM is a far smoother spread than butter off the shelf, and richer too. Ted’s lutherie handiwork yields fabulously articulate and balanced instruments, and this 2015 Å-OM is no exception. We love how the tonal palette transitioned smoothly between velvety and clear and back again as we tried out various attacks and tunings. Individual notes seem...

1998 Walker, Kim Jumbo

$19,050
Better by far to start your day with a Kim Walker guitar than with coffee.

The last flattop to ever receive Kim's "Excel" archtop appointments and headstock, Flamed Maple back and sides, German Spruce...

Schwartz, Sheldon Oracle
