1957 Martin D-21

Here's a really neat package. A 1957 D-21 with the original price tag/hang tag along with two letters from Martin to the original owner. One of the letters is signed by CF Martin. The original owner was a high ranking officer in the US Navy, a LT. Commander. The guitar spent it’s life in a case in San Francisco and the finish looks brand new due to the relatively low humidity and mild...

1939 Martin D-18

If you've ever wanted a 30s Martin dreadnought shade top but did not want to spend what a brand new luxury SUV costs (55,000 plus dollars) then this is just the guitar for you. A 39 D-18 is as rare as hen's teeth to begin with (only 475 made) but a shade top version is like finding a needle in five acres of hay. D-18s as many know are my absolute favorite model, particularly ones manufactured in...

1911 Martin Leather case for C.F. Martin's college 000-45

A most unusual and one of a kind item just came in. If you are a Martin Aficionado and into true historical artifacts- here is the case that C.F. Martin III took to Princeton with him as a Freshman to house his 1911 model 000-45. 000-45 was of course the flagship model of the era at Martin. C.F. went on to graduate from Princeton and was the shop superintendent and chief of production through...

1954 Martin D-18

A 1951 D-18 was my very first vintage guitar and as such these hold a place in my heart. This one is extremely responsive and articulate. In my opinion the D-18 model produces the absolute quintessential Martin sound. 7,500 dollars.

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...

1957 Martin D-18

Verified Adirondack spruce top on this wonderfully responsive D-18. D-18s from the 50s offer a lot of bang for the buck. The action is perfect. Housed in a tweed case. 7,250 dollars.

The spruce top over tapered bracing really gives this seventy year old guitar a growl and pop. Recent neck set executed and housed in the original case. 7,950 dollars.

1931 Martin 0M-28

1931 Martin OM-28. This is an extremely special and rare guitar. These OM-28s were made for only five years. Made from 1929 to 1933, a total of only 487 were built – and of those 166 were made in 1931. I've been told by multiple professional players over the years that 1930-31 OM-28s were the pinnacle of Martin design and construction. Long scale, forward shifted scalloped bracing, wide nut...

1939 Martin 00-21

Sale price- 15,500 dollars. Museum quality. This is by far the nicest 21 style guitar we've ever had for sale. My one personal guitar for a time was a 30s 00-21, this example is far superior to the one I had. It is CRACK FREE with absolutely 100 percent original finish and ZERO changed parts. From top to bottom this is a true collector grade pre war Martin. Trifecta of tone- Adirondack,...

1942 Martin D-18

As many know, pre war D-18s we think are the pinnacle of acoustic guitars. This one has enough "issues" to make it much more affordable than most out there. When we got it we immediately got our luthier to put vintage period correct tuners on it and to take off the goofy clunky ones that were on upon arrival to us. This improved the tone dramatically. He also installed a period correct pickguard....
