1932 national style 0

$2,975
One of the best sounding and playing examples of these that we have encountered. A great many of these original style O's have warped necks that are remedied by either National Resophonic or the great Marc Schoenberger. Don't know who did this one but it came out great. It has had a truss rod installed and refretted and works exceptionally well and has a fabulous sound. Ebony fingerboard. ...

1932 national style 4

$4,750
Great sounding, no telltale rattles, some wear hear and there and a bit of pitting in the finish. it appears to me that the peghead has been refinished, the peghead facing shrunk a bit and was reglued, which might explain it, it all looks very nice.. Repro tuners and tailpiece. Altogether a very nice guitar.

1925 Paramount Leader 5-String

$3,600
Paramount Banjos by the Wm.Lange Co. were one of the top banjo brands through-out the 1920's and early '30's. Almost all of their production consisted of 4-string tenor and plectrum banjos, but there were a tiny number of original 5-string Paramount banjos and this is one of them. The Leader model was a higher-end model featuring a Rosewood neck and solid Rosewood resonator back with colorful...

1975 Vega by C. F. Martin Vega Vox IV Plectrum Banjo

$2,900
After buying the Vega Co. of Boston, Mass. around 1970, the C.F. Martin Co. continued to produce iconic Vega Banjo models until the late '70's when the Vega brand was sold to a Korean trading co. The Vega Vox IV plectrum banjo was the top-of-the-line. The deep-dish Vox resonator is elaborately hand-painted with tradition designs and there's a matching decorated peg-head facing; ebony 22-fret...

~1940 gibson HG-00

$4,650
Just a couple of pinhead size nicks on the top keeps this one from being mint. Really quite remarkable unplayed condition.. Converted to spanish style, very playable 1 7/8" nut. Appears as if it had just left the factory. Plays effortlessly and sounds amazing. Without question the nicest one on the planet. I'm calling this a 1940, there is no FON, it has a very lovely unusual sunburst that...

1953 martin 000-18

$5,500
Ad top, just back from a neck reset, super sound. This one has been played, but there are no issues what so ever, but the original owner had one heck of a belt buckle. One of the best 000-18s we have had, really a boomer and great player. Sorry if I sound like an evangelist, but I really like this guitar. $5500

1936 gibson L00

$4,000
Completely original and crack free example that plays and sounds wonderfully. Has playwear but no issues, very warm tone. No FON, I was going to call it a '35 but noticed etched in the truss rod cover ' E.H. Ethel Elmer 1936', so 1936 it is.

1929 gibson L1 Robert Johnson

$4,500
Hard to imagine a nicer one of these out there. Clean clean clean. One one inch tight little harldy visable crack on the top, capo marks on the neck, that it. Excellent playing guitar and just a cannon. This is from the 'A' braced period, clearly the best period for these things, so I am calling it a '29 , though Spann's guide to Gibson FON numbers indicates 1928.

1984 Flatiron A5-1

$3,250
vitually unplayed excellent condition, one screw hole for a strap button. A5-1s are exactly the same as the legendery A5-2s with a little less ornamentation. X braced, incredable sound, no wonder they are so sought after. These early Flatirons are X braced, hand rubbed finishes, were completely hand made and very different from the mandolins made after Gibson purchased the company in 1985...

1957 martin T28

$2,600
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

$2,500
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

$3,900
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

$8,700
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...
