~1943 gibson J 45 banner

Here we have a very nice well played banner 45. It has had a neck set and is one of the better playing and sounding examples of these that we have had, ad top, super sound and playing. It has had a replacement bridge, correct footprint, tuners are replaced. tiny 3 inch hairline crack on the top, one solid repaired crack on the back. According to Spann's guide to FON numbers it is a console...

1957 martin T28

Here we have a T28 made in 1957, one of 6 made that year.   Really excellent looking and playing.  It appears that the top was refinished when the pickguard was added; it looks like martin pickguard material but they did not originally come with pickguards.  A beautiful example in the original case, and for those of you in a hurry, the '5 minute course for playing the tiple' is still in the case.

1991 martin 00-18

Although Martin made a grundle of 00-18s in the 50s 60s and 70s production had slowed to a crawl by the time they discontinued making them in 1994. This one is one of four made in 1991, and it appears as if they made it quite nicely. It is very close to mint condition in the original hard case and plays and sounds exceptionally well.

1953 martin 000-18

Just back from a neck set, very little playing wear, frets look unplayed. Replaced tuners and a very obvious centerseam reglue on the top below the bridge, standard pickguard crack. Has a pickup, my guess is it is one of the 'mystery top' guitars that seem common on 000-18s from 1953. HSC

1929 martin 000-18

This guitar is in great shape, just back from a neck set and plane and refret reinstalling the original bar frets.  It has a perfect replacement bridge and a bit of overspray where a pickguard would have been and just under the strings.  It has 3 filled screw holes from a tail piece that was once on it when the original bridge in the case) cracked, not very noticable.  In general a really great...

1994 martin D-45

We sold this guitar new to a gentleman in 1994. It was his favorite guitar, but he had a shoulder problem and couldn't get around it, played a single 0 a little bit, tried the mandolin, but eventually realized his playing days were done and reluctantly brought it us to sell. With the exception of a couple of dings it is minty condition, original saddle height and just perfect, so we are going...

2004 Dupont MD-50

I've had this one for around 10 years and have left he Selmers and Favinos home and used it for playing out and about. It is a really good one, particularly like the top wood used, plays with just the right tension and sound. This period seems to be quite good for Duponts. Put a big tone pickup in it some time ago. shipping 65

1932 martin 00-21

this guitar demonstrates why '31-'32 are considered by far the best years for 12 fret martins. It has just an unbelievable sound, great neck set and saddle height and is just super. It has a later added pickguard, the bridge appears to be an excellent correct footprint, and one very slight hairline in the lower back. One of the best 00's I've ever played.

1929 Gibson L-4N

this was clearly a very custom fancy guitar when built. I acquired it for the engraved gold tuners that I needed for an OM45. It also sports an amazing and very unusual case. It has been oversprayed at some point, tuners replaced in a fairly acceptable period manner. It is certainly the best sounding one of these that I have had, really superb. $60 shipping

1964 Gibson Dove

This appears to be a custom guitar. It has the more desirable fixed saddle bridge, I believe it to be original as it is obvious where the more common adj bridge slot replaced, appears factory. The double pickguard I believe it original as well: the engraving is slightly different but the material is identical and that makes sense, as it would have been custom ordered; the treble side pickguard...

An elaborate pearl inlay pattern on the fingerboard and peg-head facing, featuring some sort of leafy bush or vine with pearl and brass-wire inlays. The back of the mahogany neck is graced with possibly the longest heel-carving you or I have ever seen. Near the heel, a fearsome sea monster lurks, [or maybe it's a...

2003 Gibson Earl Scruggs '49 Classic

In 1949, Earl Scruggs sent his '30's flathead Mastertone banjo back to Gibson for worn frets and fingerboard and Gibson sent it back to Earl with a new fingerboard and the fancy pearl inlays of the day, often called "bowties". One of the several Earl Scruggs models that Gibson issued in the '90's was the Earl Scruggs '49 Classic, commemorating the modified Mastertone which Earl is often pictured...

1949 Martin 00-28G

A fine Brazilian Rosewood Martin 00-28G nylon-string Classical guitar. "G" , possibly for "Gut", was Martin's designation for their classics until around 1960 when they changed the body-shape and the designation became "C", presumably for "Classical". Excellent and original with a few dings and signs of usage. Original tuners have been replaced with Schallor pegs. NO cracks or damage. Great to...

Almost unplayed, all the case candy,pretty much spent its life in the closet. Last of the small maple bridgeplate, a really superb example in every way, the only thing that could be an issue of any kind is a replaced pickguard. There is also a letter from CF Martin from when it was originally purchased. Shipping 65
