Real charges only - no added materials or handling charges. All guitars insured for full value. I will use the least expensive shipping available, although this may be slow in some circumstances (e.g. parcel post). Please let me know if you desire a faster, albeit more, expensive service. Please allow 2 - 4 days of time to prepare and pack your guitar IN ADDITION to the actual shipping transit.

NO buyer's remorse PLEASE! Damage or loss in shipping = insurance claim (with which I will be glad to assist you). At my discretion, a disatistfied buyer may return a guitar (with a thorough explanation) for a full refund of purchase price but not of shipping. I'd rather begrudgingly take back a guitar than truly disappoint a customer. If, however, I have ever made a serious error in identification/originality/damage etc. that negatively affects a guitar's value, then a full refund including shipping will be given. PLEASE file any return claims ASAP - seven days at most.

~1920 Stella parlor

$750
Absolutely delightful pre-Depression Oscar Schmidt Stella parlor, with solid spruce top and solid birch back and sides. No cracks or rough seams, but there is one ding on the side that is shown in a pic. Binding and wood marquetry are in great shape. What amazing luck to have the original guard. This guitar HAS been played with the guard off, but fortunately it was not thrown away. Tuners are not...

~1970 Harmony H1260 Sovereign

$495
Yes, you CAN play Stairway to Heaven on this one! Jimmy Page cut the iconic acoustic parts on a Harmony 1260 (BTW, the solo was done on a Tele as well, not a Paul). Big brawny Harmony H1260 with solid spruce top, solid mahogany sides, and laminated mahogany one-piece back. Huge jumbo dreadnought body. Original tuners, but faithfully done repro pickguard. Very solid, and plays and sounds awesome....

1976 Guild® G-37

$995
Stunning 1976 Guild G-37 dreadnought in natural finish. Solid spruce top and maple sides and back. No cracks or issues. Bridge was partially off (went back on perfectly) and there are a couple minor nicks around its base. Too small to show effectively in the pics. Possible old neck set, as there was a little finish roughness near the joint, and the heel cap was missing. Finish buffed back out...

1962 Framus 5/95 Doc Williams

$495
Cool and interesting 1962 German-made Framus 5/95 "Doc Williams" model dreadnought. All original parts and in excellent condition. Spruce top with flamey maple back and sides, but they're laminates. Rather odd bridge design, but actually does the trick just fine. High E 12th fret action is medium high at 1/8" , but it's a good player. Not tons of bottom end, but nicely defined tone that is...

1967 Fender® Coronado

$1,895
Very cool 1967 (19JAN67B) Fender Coronado II in candy apple red with matching headstock. All original parts except for one replaced/fabricated pickup spacer. Finish is strong and in great shape, but there are two small areas on the back that look like they were exposed to heat or something chemical (see pic). A couple areas of minor rash too, but not through to wood. Initials had been glued to...

1976 Gibson LES PAUL DELUXE

$1,995
Nice solid 1976 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe with the mini humbuckers. Iced tea sunburst, which of course is a decent facsimile of a faded cherry burst. Light flame with some birdseyes. Original = body and neck, finish, binding, mini humbuckers with surrounds and full leads, knobs, truss rod cover, bridge and posts, tailpiece, strap buttons, switch surround. Genuine but newer Gibson parts = tuners (new...

~1965 Kay Speed Demon

$795
Excellent mid-60s Kay Speed Demon. All original parts, except for bridge, which is a Kay piece from the correct era. Great condition - just minimal playing wear. Plays nicely with action at 3/32". Neck, fretboard, frets are not ABSOLUTELY perfect (it's a Kay!), but there are no plinky notes or cut-outs, and you can grab full-step bends with ease. Sounds cheap and snotty. Totally Indie/Emo. Made...

~1975 Epiphone ET 270

$495
Very cool mid-seventies Epiphone ET 270 solidbody, made in Japan. An early fave of Kurt Cobain, and you'll see why. The single-coil (8k) pups sound like P-90s from Hell! Great condition throughout, and all original except for missing tremolo cover. A few scuffs, scratches, and dings, but finish is still really strong. Nice straight neck, thin C profile, and good frets. Seventies Japanese Epi...

1951 Harmony H 60

$895
Very nice 1951 Harmony H 60 single pickup single cutaway archtop. Harmony's very legitimate foray into big body jazz boxes, and a real nice one at that. Original finish and binding in excellent shape, neck angle good, original brass frets still decent. Correct vintage individual Waverly tuners, Gibson-made P 13 pup, wooden bridge. Correct-era 1950s nickle trapeze, but it's a thinline unit, so it...

~1925 Stromberg-Voisonet unknown

$595
Very early Stromberg-Voisonet (the company that became Kay) parlor. Solid spruce and birch. Cool fully recessed tuners and engraved headstock reverse. One 10-inch crack on back that is cleanly cleated. Another 6-inch below soundhole that is completely tight. Two small areas of minor cracking across the grain on the bottom (treble side). Odd way to crack. Finish is strong and looks all original,...

1971 Grammer S-30

$1,650
Sublime 1971 Grammer S-30 "baby" dreadnought (14.75" at lower bouts). Made in Music City USA (that's Nashville). These are sometimes touted as the guitars of late-60s and early-70s Country Royalty, and they are damn nice. This one sports subtle cloudlike figured mahogany back and sides, and a spectacular top that is a bit of an enigma. Company info would tell you Grammer used Sitka Spruce, but...

1918 Gibson L 1

$1,650
Very nice 1918 Gibson L 1. No cracks or neck issues. Plenty of player wear, but nothing excessive. Tuners are StewMac golden age square plates in relic nickle. Newer bridge. Tailpiece is a faithful reproduction of the curious plastic-bar type trapeze, but my repro is made of modern acrylic rather than the original celluloid that is prone to rotting. The metal part is a c. 1950 nickle unit very...

~1970 Hoyer not known

$325
Very handsome c. 1970 German-made Hoyer dreadnought acoustic guitar. Fantastic condition. Beautiful mahogany sides and arched back, but woods are likely laminates. The big surface weather cracks on top, as is typical of many German guitars. These are NOT wood cracks. All original parts, including really cool nickle tuners. Looks to have been converted from a zero fret to a standard nut. There is...

~1965 Lyle Trini Lopez copy

$695
Coolest Japanese electric ever? Mid-60s Lyle Trini Lopez copy, 6-on-a-side headstock and diamond soundholes. Two good quality pickups and an accurate and sensitive tremolo with very convenient string loading. All original parts. Some cleanly replaced binding along the back bottom. Just some nicks, scratches, scuffs here and there. Easy playing jumbo frets, but neck is narrow (1 and 9/16 at nut)....

~1955 Gretsch Synchromatic 160

$1,250
**Marked down! I've acquired another Catseye for my personal collection so I don't mind being aggressive with this one. Mid-1950s Gretsch Synchromatic 160 with catseye soundholes. Pretty good shape for an older Gretsch that has definitely been played. Finish still strong, except for an area near the fretboard extension and another at the treble side of the bridge (might be the result of a pickup...

~1975 Kiso Suzuki W 180

$325
Nice "lawsuit" Kiso Suzuki dreadnought, from respected violin maker. Gee, with that curved script headstock logo, I wonder who they were copying. Spruce top and marvelous rosewood back and sides, although they are laminates (dang it!). Plays great and has very solid tone. Nice bottom end that is usually lacking with laminated woods. Excellent condition throughout, but has a little roughness...

~1965 Goya F-11

$495
Very nice 1960s Goya-Levin F-11 grand concert size acoustic, made in Sweden. Fan-braced solid spruce top and flamed birch sides and back. Plenty of dings, scratches, etc., but nothing serious. More than shows in the pics, though. An interesting "hybrid" model. Wide flat fretboard and flamenco guards suggest nylon strings. Pin bridge, solid peghead, and brass tuner posts are obviously for steel...

~1955 Kay all mahogany archtop

$375
Marked down! Really nice guitar, but it's been sitting... Beautiful all mahogany natural finish Kay archtop. Clean, with just a few minor bumps and scratches. All laminates though, as was common with mid-grade Kays. Nice player with respectable tone. Pretty big neck. Has a 1 mm heel gap, but joint is rock solid. Carelessly left in hot car? Wood shrinkage? Doesn't look reset, but maybe... That's...

~1970 Ovation Matrix

$295
Very interesting and quite early Ovation Matrix, with the aluminum neck. Has some surface top cracks (it's laminated), part of the plastic soundhole rosette is broken, and some finish is worn off the fretboard. Good action and a solid player, with decent tone. Not everyone is into aluminum necks, but if you are this is a really nice guitar for a modest price.

~1965 Norma not known

$550
Totally cool pair of Japanese Normas, solid body electric and short-scale bass. Guitar has two Teisco gold-foil (Cooder) pups. Instruments can be sold separately, each for slightly more than half the price of the pair.

~1970 Goya TS-4

$495
Beautiful c. 1970 Goya/Levin (Swedish made) 12 string. Gorgeous flamed maple back. Very nice player with excellent tone. Not as easy to intonate as the Harptone listed here, but you'll get it. A couple minor top cracks near the bottom, but they're not going anywhere.

~1960 Kay N-10

$450
Classic all birch Kay single pickup archtop. Sixteen inch lower bouts. Beefy baseball bat neck. Original pickup was gone; replaced with goldfoil Teisco pup. If you can find one, an original pup can be put back on leaving no evidence of the replacement. Correct Kay bridge and tuners. Tailpiece is heavy duty high quality replacement. Plays and sounds fantastic. This guitar had been painted red!...

~1965 Silvertone Cowboy/western scene

$295
Small solid birch Silvertone parlor (13"bouts and short scale) with stenciled cowboy scene. Excellent clean condition throughout, with just modest scratching and one back crack that is not an issue. A little bit concave at neck joint, but not objectionable. Bridge has been moved to correct for intonation, but it can be moved back if desired. Actually plays well and intonates acceptably.

~1965 Kay Vanguard

$495
Marked down! Crazy rare teal Kay Vanguard. Sunbursts were pretty common, but not these little nuggets. All original. Plays and sounds great. Color is very strong, although definitely greening a bit along the neck. Finish is no longer glossy, but has taken on the sort of matte feel that I've seen on other colorful dimestore guitars of the era. Be the first kid on the block to take this to a gig!

1960 Gibson L-48

$1,200
Nice 1960 Gibson L-48. All original, but no PG. Finish is clean, but not quite as nice as it looks in the pics - a little player wear here and there. High E 12th fret action at 1/16". Great player with nice tone. SSC that I don't think is original.
