1938 Gibson L-00

$5,550
We have sold twenty four 30s L-00s in the last two years. This is clearly the best overall condition one we have had. The most remarkable thing to me is that the tuners are not only original but actually retain chrome and shine! These tuners look like they were made two years ago, not nearly 80 years ago! Not only that but there are zero cracks in this Adirondack topped scalloped braced guitar....

You will not find a better condition 00-17. These guitars are just wonderful for recording, mic'd for a gig, songwriting, or playing in your living room.

1950 Martin D-18

$5,000
My very first vintage guitar was a 1951 D-18, and really was the guitar that started Dying Breed Music. This era holds a special place for me. Here's a great 67 year old spruce over mahogany D-18 guitar. It sounds and plays great. Appears to be some factory spray applied years ago but no refinish at all. 5,000 dollars.

1941 Martin D-18

$15,500
AMAZING SOUND. A pre war Martin dreadnought! Many people know that D-18s are my favorite guitar model. A 41 D-18 was my one personal guitar for three years.

If it's the Adirondack top, scalloped bracing, light weight construction, old growth mahogany, hide glue, mojo, craftsmen... I'm not certain, but the sum...
