1939 Martin D-18

$25,000
Steve Earle once said in a magazine interview that pre war Martin D-18s are one of two to three things in life that live up to the hype. And that if he could have only one guitar for the rest of his life, it would be a pre war D-18. I whole heartedly agree. The D-18 made in the pre war years is the absolute pinnacle for me. This one came from the family of the original owner, has no top cracks,...

1933 Gibson L-00

$4,700
As many know, I love L-00s. Along with D-18s they are tied for my favorite acoustic guitar model. As such I have bought and sold a ton of them. The ones from 1933 with the small burst, to my ears, sound the best. When you look at at ponder the craftsmanship, history, materials, and pre war era of these L-00s- it is clear to me that these are undervalued monetarily. Adirondack top, scalloped...
