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.

1973 Guild® D-25

$750
1973 Guild D-25 all mahogany cherry finish dreadnought in excellent condition. All original with no issues whatsoever. Excellent condition with just a few scattered scuffs, dings and scratches. Easily qualifies as "excellent," but enough wear and tear to come up short of the much overused "near mint." There are widely spaced and not terribly heavy weather checking lines on the top, which I think...

~1930 Maybell Pinnacle

$695
Depression-era c. 1930 Maybell Pinnacle model parlor. Solid spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. Maybells, cool as they are, were generally relatively budget models. However, this Pinnacle model is a step up, with its mahogany back and sides and fancy faux pearl overlaid headstock. Nice original reverse-threaded tuners. New bone saddle and ebony pins. Solid all around, but has enough...

~1953 Kay not known

$795
Awesome early to mid fifties Kay jumbo flat top. Solid spruce top with laminated maple back and sides. Bold figuring on back and sides, AND wonderful bearclaw grain in the spruce. Exceptional condition. Its ONLY flaw is that the decal has flaked off a bit. Finish is clean with a capital C. Came without its bridge, so I outfitted it with a very well done rosewood replica, with a bone saddle to...

~1960 Kay N-10

$595
Early 60s Kay "White Stripes" full depth archtop electric with pancake pup. I've hade this guitar for a long time, but I've finally got it equipped with all original parts (except for decal). Pancake pup is dark and woody sounding, and has quite a lot of output. Guitar looks, plays, and sounds great, but is not a museum piece. Small business-card thickness heel gap and two very small cracks in...

1961 Harmony Stratotone

$595
Yeah! A '61 Strat! OK, so it's not THAT Strat. But it ain't 20 grand either. Really clean 1961 Harmony Stratotone single-pup electric. Screaming little Dearmond sounds awesome. Pots were really scratchy and looked awful inside, so I installed a high quality harness (CTS and Orange Drop) that I had lying around. Completely clean now, and really cooks with the higher end components. BTW, I did NOT...

1977 Univox Hi Flier Phase IV

$695
Ultra cool 1977 Univox Hi Flier Phase IV, the Japanese-made poor man's Ventures model. All original, and in excellent condition throughout. Just a few dings and scuffs here and there, and a little wear through the finish along the edges. Neck joint looks good - the obligatory cracks at the neck pocket are very small and look to be in the finish only (this can be an issue with these guitars, as...

1964 Epiphone Caballero

$895
Clean 1964 Epiphone Caballero, the Gibson-made (USA) equivalent of the all-mahogany LG-0. The original (and horrible) screw-on plastic bridge was shot, so this one has been outfitted with a correct rosewood replacement. This is one of the few cases where most players and collectors consider a bridge replacement to be a positive feature! The top is slightly bellied (and probably won't flatten...

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...

~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...

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...

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...

~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)....

~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...

~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.

~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.
