1968 Fender telecaster

$5,000
I don't know much about these things,, here is what George said when he appraised it for 5K in 2013: "Description: We have been provided the following description: "Serial # 221741 (1969) - Parsons & White Bender Serial # 0127 - non original pickups and tuners, all else could be original.” Based upon examination of the attached photos this guitar appears to be in finc...

This Dyer Harp Mando has a few very solid repaired cracks. It plays and sounds extremely well for one of these, probably the best of the ones I have.

1974 martin D-45

$7,650
When Martin switched to Indian rosewood in 1970 they initially had a small batch of very old air dried Indian rosewood, this apparently is from that batch, stunningly different from the subsequent generic wood used. This guitar is in exceedingly good shape, has a replaced pickguard, Slightly thinned bridge, it looks quite good. It has a Swiss made Schertler Bluestick Pickup, quite pricey and...

~1934 vega C 20

$1,000
The Vega Company was founded in in 1881 in Boston, Massachuetts and is best known for its banjos. They also produced mandolins, brass instruments and high quality guitars until the end of the 1930's. In the 1940's and 1950's the quality of Vega instruments declined. This Vega C-20 archtop guitar is a high quality instrument and it is in original and crackfree condition. It is most probably...

1938 martin D-28

$46,000
There are not a lot of the guitars that I know the history of as well as this one. It belongs to a friend of mine of 45 years, and now is the time of life for him to move on. I remember when he purchased it in 1974, we played old timey music together. All of the major issues with this guitar existed as they are now when he bought the guitar, nothing has changed or moved. The two major issues...

1936 martin o017 H

$3,500
These Martin Hawaiian guitars from this period came with flat fingerboards and bar frets. Not everyones favorite combination. When this conversion was done, along with the neck set the fingerboard was replaced ( with Brazilian) with a modern radiused fingerboard. Much better. As well, it had the super thin '36 bridgeplate replaced with something more typical of that period, very nice. Two...

1931 martin 000-18

$7,500
For those of you who want to get their Norman Blake on, we have for your consideration this 1931 000-18. It has had some work done on it over the years, never the less, a fabulous playing and sounding guitar. Couple of old repaired cracks on the back, a little patch on the upper side bout as well as a filled jack hole. Somewhere along the line it also had a bridge plate reinforcement. The...

1936 gibson super 400

$12,500
This is the cleanest early super 400 I have seen, the leather case is splendid, the plating on the engraved tuners and tailpiece is gorgeous. An amazing example from out of the closet. Early 1936 is the last of the desirable and rare small upper bout early model, this one has some features that suggest it was finished later: It is parallel, rather than 'X' braced and has the larger F holes of a...

1947 gibson LG-2

$3,800
Excellent sounding and playing guitar. It has a conspicuous top center seam reglue and pickguard crack. 1 3/4" nut width, plenty of saddle and needs nothing. This is the only LG-2 I recall having the high grade brown pink lined case.

1921 gibson K2

$3,200
Like so many of these Gibson mandocellos, this one had conspicuous top sinkage. We had it rebraced and it is now a superb sounding and playing instrument. At one point it was turned into a 6 string, but the evidence of that is hard to see on the peghead. The serial number is illegible, but the original adjustable bridge and no truss rod strongly indicate 1921.

Same scale length and appointments as the more common GB-4 Guitar-Banjo. Absolutely original down to last nut. Condition slightly used. Straight neck, low action. Got to be THE nicest example. Original Hard case in stunning condition. Serial: #11413-5...

1929 Epiphone Recording A Plectrum

$1,700
The late '20's were a great period for Epiphone Banjos. Design had reached it's apex with the heavy-duty X-flange, a one-piece flange that could rival Gibson's one-piece flange which was being introduced the same year this banjo was made. Full 22-fret plectrum neck. Heavy-duty arch-top tone-ring and maple-rim construction. This example has a straight walnut neck, all metal-parts have been...

1928 Epiphone Recording A

$2,200
The later and more desirable Epiphone banjos feature the X-Flange and are considered among the top banjo models from the so-called Jazz-Banjo Era. Walnut neck, 2-band Grover geared pegs. Straight neck, good action, all-original and in excellent condition. The original case turned out to be in execrable condition and thus has been nicely replaced with a good-fitting period hard case by...

1933 epiphone zentih

$2,700
If this guitar reminds you of David Rawlings famous epi, there is a good reason: The first few Zeniths made, and there are only a few, are basically the same 13 5/8" guitar as Davids Olympic, which was 13 5/8" through 1933 and then they all got bigger. The only difference that I can detect is, the Oympic has mahogony sides and back and the Zentih maple. They really appear as peas in a pod, or,...
