1937 Martin F-9

A truly special piece. Only 73 of these were made... fewer than the vaunted D-45 model. This was also the MOST expensive model in the entire Martin catalogue. Brazilian rosewood back and sides. Very fancy inlays including the vertical “C.F. Martin” logo on the head stock. The vast majority of these guitars have been converted to an OM style. This one has not. The best sounding archtop I’ve ever...

1936 Gibson Trojan. The rarest of the rare. Only 39 ever produced and only three are recorded in the Spann book. Made for two months, October and November of 1936. It is one of the most scarce models that Gibson ever produced. Indeed, it really is more of a prototype rather than an actual production model. It was never in the Gibson catalogue. These guitars were actually all given to salesmen to...

1944 Gibson Southern Jumbo

1944 Gibson Southern Jumbo 14 % off
Just in- 1944 (banner) Gibson Southern Jumbo- a very rare piece indeed. Banner Gibsons are spoken about in reverent tones for many reasons. A book entitled "Kalamazoo Gals" has even been written and published wherein the story of this era at Gibson is told. The publication has certainly enhanced the allure of these guitars. The Southern Jumbo was the top of the line flagship slope shoulder guitar...

1946 Gibson LG-2

My personal guitar for a time was an LG-2 from...

1956 Gibson J-45

1956 Gibson J-45 just in with all the right mojo and tone. The J-45 model is one of my top five favorite guitar models. In my experience when most folks talk or think about a "Gibson flat top" they're referring to a J-45. They're truly quintessential Gibson and produce the tone that defined much of music. These are great for application to blues, Americana, folk, country, and rock music. This...

1953 Gibson Southern Jumbo

1953 Gibson Southern Jumbo 17 % off
An all original 1953 Southern Jumbo. Great scalloped bracing under the high grade spruce top. No changed parts on this instrument and the finish is original. This model is in fact far more than simply a dressed up J-45 with requisite upgraded binding and inlays. Indeed, the wood Gibson reserved for this was and is far superior than what was used to construct J-45s. It has all of the sound,...

1937 Gibson L-00

We’ve sold as many L-00s as anyone I believe, and as I tell folks regularly, these are the best deal out there when it comes to vintage acoustics.

1937 Martin 000-28 shade top. This guitar is extraordinarily special.
