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.

1971 Epiphone 6730

$295
Interesting 1971 Epiphone model 6730 dreadnought, Japan. This is one of the oldest post-USA Epis and is at or near the top of the line for dreads. Spruce and mahogany, but all laminates of course. Came to me with the typical bolt-neck Epi problems of forward pushing neck and deformed soundhole. These play like electrics, but the wood removal for the neck pocket makes them push forward over time...

1958 Supro Dual Tone

$1,395
Get yer Link Wray on! (Well, channel some David Bowie too!) All original 1958 Supro Dual Tone in the classic white plastic coated finish. Very good to excellent condition throughout. A few dings and a couple little crinkles in the coating around the edge, but no cracking or delamination. Plenty of tarnish on the metal, but not unsightly. Neck and frets are great, and action is low and buzz-free....

1971 Ovation Glen Campbell Balladeer

$695
Very nice 1971 Ovation Glen Campbell model 1127-4 Balladeer, with original case. One of Ovation's first artist-endorsed models, and a significant and desirable historic model (check out the prices on US-made reissues!). Very good condition throughout, and a smooth player with superb tone. It has several of the large surface cracks that are typical in older Ovations, except those that have been...

1971 Gibson B 20

$795
Interesting 1971 Gibson B-20 grand concert flat top. I believe these were only made one year. Solid spruce and mahogany. X-braced (Cool!), but has the wonky string-thru bridge. Actually gets good tone, although the pin bridge is a better idea. Plays great, with action at around 3/32". Just honest wear, including a little bit of case wear on the sides. Includes Fishman soundhole pickup and gig...

~1965 Goya N 21

$395
Delightful mid-60s Swedish made Goya (Levin) solid mahogany N 21 grand concert flat top. Excellent condition cosmetically; just one scratch across the front that shows in the pics. A tight crack on the back extending up from the bottom of the guitar. Lightly cleated, and not going anywhere. Old neck reset. Could have been done a little cleaner (you can see some glue along the joint), but it's...

~1960 Kay unknown

$295
Exceptionally cool Kay birch bodied jumbo 17" flat top, converted from trapeze to fixed pin bridge. This guitar started its life with a trapeze and floating bridge, but having such a huge span from the tailpiece to the bridge it had no downward drive on the unwound strings. Being a set-neck, there was no chance to shim the neck for a better angle. I always had considered it for a conversion, and...

~1947 Kay unknown

$595
Probably the oldest "modern" Kay flat top I've seen. Early post-war, c. 1947. Pre-war's seem to be all parlors, Venetians, Hawaiians, etc. Pre-script stenciled logo and blue badge soundhole label. Solid spruce top with laminated mahogany back and sides. Original bridge was split in two, so I used it as a template to fashion a new one out of ebony (original was only ebonized fruitwood). New ebony...

~1965 Silvertone 1454

$995
Smokin' c. 1965 Harmony-made 3-pup Silvertone 1454. Three Dearmonds that absolutely scorch. The bridge pup in particular is a killer. All electronics, pickguard and switch cover, Bigsby, tuners, and strap buttons original. Bridge, knobs, switch tips, truss rod cover, and nut are correct or near-facsimile replacements. Plays great. Neck is straight and frets are good. A little fret wear in the...

1971 Martin D-35

$1,895
Very solid 1971 Martin D-35. So.... condition and originality are crucial for vintage Martins, so read on for details: -Neck has been reset sometime in the past. Angle perfect and joint is flush and tight. I see two tiny fretboard imperfections along #15. Maybe the owners messed around there before calling a pro? BTW, I also see a small FB chip near fret #14, but that might be an unrelated...

~1965 Silvertone Chris Isaak

$1,350
Solid candidate for coolest Harmony product ever! Jet black single cut thinline (with small block) with Seth Lover designed offset-pole mini hummers and a Bigsby. Plays great and absolutely scorches. You can't dial in a bad tone from this thing. Great neck and frets, although perty darn narrow. Finish is in very good shape. Dings and scratches here and there, mostly on the back, but still nice...

~1962 Framus 5/95 Doc Williams

$395
Very interesting c. 1962 German Framus Doc Williams 5/95 dreadnought acoustic. Unusual in that it is fan braced like a classical. Top might be solid spruce, but flamey maple back and sides are laminates. Neck-set is spot on, and top is flat. High E 12th fret action is 3/32". All original parts, except that original bridge has been converted from a string-thru to a standard pin bridge....

1960 Harmony Stratotone Mercury

$725
Beautiful 1960 Harmony Stratotone Mercury, the fancy curly maple version of the quintessential one-pup rocker with the tres cool Dearmond gold foil. Excellent cosmetic and playing condition, with just a few scuffs and dings here and there. A little finish cracking by the tailpiece/endpin, but not into the wood. Looks awesome. Flamey top and back, and has little birdseyes on the bass side. Nice...

1964 Harmony H303

$375
Beautiful condition 1964 Harmony H303 tube amp. All original, including two-prong cord. The amp is still surprisingly quiet BTW. Even has original tubes. About 3-4 watts through six inch speaker. Really nice break-up when pushed. Awesome condition throughout. A little dustiness of the grille cloth around the speaker, some very minor bubbling under the tolex along a small section of one side of...

1972 ALVAREZ 5044

$295
1972 ALVAREZ 5044 21 % off
Japanese-made 1972 Alvarez 5044 dreadnought. Spruce top and rosewood body, although all laminates as was typical for these guitars. A little forward rotation of the adjustable-saddle bridge, again, rather typical for this era of Japanese flat top. Not enough to make for poor playing though. In fact, 12th fret high E action is just above 1/16", and there is no objectionable buzzing. IMHO you could...

~1960 Harmony Hollywood

$395
Tres cool late-fifties to early sixties Harmony Hollywood single pup archtop electric. Solid birch. Excellent cosmetically and structurally. One small area along the treble side upper bout where a seam had been sloppily re-glued. It cleaned up decently but less than perfectly. Top is surprisingly non-wavy. Sometime you can surf on these, but this one is darn good. Excellent neck and fretboard....

~1980 Arc unknown

$395
Interesting little tube amp by "Arc." I know nothing about the brand, but it is made in Canada. I'm estimating it dates from c. 1980. 'Bout as simple as you can get, with just a volume and tone knob. With an 8" speaker and what I'm estimating is around 6 - 7 watts output, this is substantially louder than a "practice" amp. You could coffee house gig with it. Really nice creamy tone of course. A...

~1937 Gibson (unbranded) unknown

$795
Extremely cool "mystery" unlabeled Gibson/Regal Depression brand archtop. Squared-off tapered headstock is unmistakably a Gibson Depression-era feature. Solid spruce/mahogany 16" dreadnought-shaped and ladder braced archtop body looks to be built by Regal. No idea what brand was intended here. Recording King? Mastertone? Probably NOT a Kalamazoo, however, because I've never seen this model. One...

~1953 Kay K150 Lark (Jimmy Reed pup)

$695
Righteous early '50s Kay "Lark" model with the famous Jimmy Reed blade pickup. Rock solid and mostly original, but well loved. All external parts original except for control knob base plate, which is an accurate repro made from an old cracked and discarded Kay pickguard. Pup recently professionally rewound to vintage specs. New harness with high quality CTS/orange drop components. I kept the cord...

~1960 Danelectro Cadet

$295
Cool c. 1960 Danelectro Cadet amplifier. Excellent condition overall, with just a little wear and tear on the edges and corners. Grill cloth looks great too. Very quiet - no hum or buzz whatsoever, even with an original two-prong cord. Great tube tone, but of course not all that much volume or gain. Would scorch with a touch of overdrive. Pots are a bit scratchy but work just fine. They also...

~1955 Silvertone 1430

$395
Yummy little mid-50s Silvertone 1430 tube amp. Great tone at bedroom volumes. Appears to be all original. Wallpaper-like covering in good shape overall, but you can see the modest rough spots along some of the edges. Grill cloth is excellent. Not much volume or gain - this is definitely a practice amp. Sounds great, though, and would scream with judicious use of an overdrive pedal. There are...

~1965 Supro Oahu Dual Tone resoglass

$1,395
Tres cool mid-60s Supro Dual Tone resoglass, branded "Oahu." All original except for new blade-type pickup selector switch (good quality replacement from Stew-Mac). Sorry, the original was hopeless, but I'll toss it in the case anyway. Resoglass surfaces still nice and glossy. Just a very little scuffing/swirling here and there. Neck and frets in great shape. The only cosmetic flaw is that some...

~1973 Epiphone not known

$295
Early 1970s Japanese Epiphone 12-string of the bolt-on neck variety. Not sure of model because label is gone. Clean spruce and mahogany body, but all laminates of course. Had suffered from the all too common issue of deformation along the neck-side edge of the soundhole that results from excess pressure on an area of minimal wood strength (I've even seen this on Epi 6-stringers). I re-glued and...

~1937 Del Oro unknown

$795
Marked her down! Crazy cool pre-war Del Oro round hole archtop parlor (~13.5" bouts) in solid mahogany. All original parts except for replacement bridge. Fully bound in checker board. Outrageous plastic faux abalone fretboard and pickguard that I like to characterize as Mother of Oil Slick! Three clean top cracks that show in pics. The two under the tailpiece and to the bass side of the bridge...

1964 Epiphone Caballero

$795
1964 Epiphone Caballero 11 % off
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

$1,750
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...

1951 Harmony H 60

$895
Updates (cool!): 1) Found a deep-body trapeze as originally used. 2) Guitar now comes in a super nice 1950s black faux gator lined soft shell case. 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...

1971 Grammer S-30

$1,495
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...

~1965 Goya F-11

$395
~1965 Goya F-11 20 % off
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
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 its only issue, and the action is still good, although the...

~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.
