2008 Southwell Guitars A Series Special Edition

$11,325
They don’t build ‘em like this anymore. Literally. Gary Southwell no longer builds with Brazilian Rosewood, and not only does this A Series boast one of the last sets of Brazilian he's ever used, but it also features an exquisitely tight-grained German Spruce top given to Gary by none other than Julien Bream. This is Gary’s 250th guitar, built in 2008 and featuring the distinct...

2001 Ryan Mission Grand Concert

$6,175
We love to see a Ryan with some years under its belt. This 2001 Mission Grand Concert doesn’t disappoint! Only a few shallow love bites here to let you know this Ryan hasn’t been wasting away in its case. The voice is lively and responsive, with more dry mids than you would usually find on a Cedar-topped guitar, and that gives this particular Mission a defined response that holds up...

2018 Baron Guitars OM

$6,175
Our very first instrument from Baron Guitars come to the party dressed in black and with a voice that cuts right through the riff raff. Here decked out with Flamed Maple back and sides and an Italian Spruce top, we found the voice had an easy balance across the registers, but cut very well through the mix. The treble response is crisp and well-defined, and the bass and midrange response are...

2010 Sobell Martin Simpson Signature

$12,355
Martin Simpson and Stefan Sobell are two of the main reasons Dream Guitars ever got started! Naturally, Sobell’s Martin Simpson Signature model is a force to be reckoned with.

Big voice from a big box (over...

Clarity, energy, and responsiveness characterize this beautiful example of Steven’s work, here in Madagascar Rosewood and European Spruce. The elevated fingerboard in the style of Thomas Humphrey’s Millenium Classical helps upper fret access, and adds...

2002 Traugott BK

$22,655
Time has treated this Traugott well, indeed. Opening up since 2002, this BK model has an incredible voice today that’s equal parts clarity and power. This is Jeff’s large-bodied design that lends itself to both flatpicking and fingerstyle approaches—and we can attest that it thrives in both capacities. We were excited to discover that the back and sides came from Jeff’s...

2011 Tippin Crescendo

There’s simply no one out there quite like Bill Tippin. His instruments astound both the eyes and the ears, and they play as easily as breathing. It is, hands down, an honor to offer his guitars to the world.

2017 McPherson 4.5 Camrielle

$20,343
There’s no one single guitar that’s perfect for every situation, but this like-new 2017 McPherson 4.5 “Camrielle” comes extremely close.

An instrument of this caliber speaks for itself, with volume and clarity. This 2015 Kostal 00 is what every 12-fret, small-bodied guitar should be: capable of anything.

Man oh man, this is a fun one. We’re talking about a virtually all-original 1958 Gibson ES-175 (right down to the curlicue pickguard) with the original Gibson Lifton case, PAF pickup, tuners, bridge—on and on. We’ve gone over this one with a fine tooth comb to make sure everything is in order, and we’re very happy to say this one is on the up and up! It plays like butter...

1998 Martin HD28V Custom

$7,720
If it ain’t broke, why fix it? Martin’s HD-28V is a dreadnought classic that needs no introduction, but this beauty from 1998 isn’t your standard herringbone Martin off the line. This one has been customized with Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides, and Adirondack Spruce on top! Add butterbean tuners and a zigzag backstrip to the mix for good measure, and an aged toner top...

2015 Martin D-45E Retro

This cannon’s gone electric! Talk about a talkative Dreadnought: we’ve got a 2015 like-new Martin D-45E Retro that’s loud, energetic, with a buttery playability to boot.

1937 Martin D-18

$27,805
A hallmark of the vintage Martin world: the D-18. Ours comes to us from 1937, and it’s kept itself in great shape for the past eighty years. The neck carve starts out in a smooth-cheeked C-profile, then slowly the point of a soft-V shape emerges as you travel along the neck toward the heel. Frets are freshly dressed by our repair team, and we’ve dialed in the setup for easy...

1981 Manzer Manzer

$9,265
A blast from the past, with tone to spare: our 1981 Manzer has a pocketful of mojo, and it ain’t afraid to show it. Indian Rosewood back and sides, Sitka Spruce top, and easy playability come together to make this one a challenge to put down. We found she took to DADGAD exceedingly well, but standard tuning brought it home just as sweetly. It’s really a great example of a...
