1954 Gibson ES-125

Call
After all the many thousands of electric guitars that have come and gone through our doors, we still get really excited by a nice ES-125. These guitars might not be the best choice for garage band rock, but they sure sound great playing blues and rootsy melodic stuff. Technically, the ES125 is a budget jazz box, but it’s a bit more raw and dirty sounding than most jazz players want a guitar to...

Taylor 812 12-Fret

Call
A custom-ordered 12-fret 800 level Grand Concert with V-Class bracing, this 812 was built without pickup or cutaway. It’s a notch simpler than a standard 812ce and will appeal to the acoustic purist who favors the feel of a Taylor GC but wants the lightest and most acoustically responsive version possible. Taylor doesn’t build too many high-end guitars without cut-away and pickups, and the 812...

OME Wizard

Call
Custom ordered with a 12” 14-bracket rim and a figured maple neck, this OME Wizard is light in weight and wonderfully responsive.

1993 Guild D4-NT LH

Call
Quite possibly the most undervalued and under-rated used guitars on the market are the Westerly-made Guilds built in the early 1990s before the company was sold to Fender in 1995. Guild production in that time was solidly consistent, and their guitars were great looking, great playing, and great sounding machines. This D4-NT Lefty is a simply appointed and good looking Dreadnought with solid...

1936 Martin Style A

Call
The perfect companion to your mint-condition 30’s shaded-top Martin D-18. You have one of those, right?! This Martin Style A was built in 1936, right around the time that the shaded-top first became a standard option. This example is in near-mint condition and in perfect playing order.

1937 Gibson L-00

$4,995
With all the bluesy punch one could ask for, some seriously cool looks, and fresh-off-our-bench playability, this 1937 Gibson L-00 won’t leave anyone wanting for more. It’s a great sounding mid-30’s version of the model, with a chunky V neck and lots of power, and it’s a seriously fun ragtime blues picker. Neck reset, replacement bridge and saddle, and one brace repair were all just taken care...

1954 Gibson LG-2 3/4

Call
The Gibson LG-2 ¾ was introduced in the late 1940s as Gibson’s only acoustic model that was designed specifically for children or players with small hands.
