Excellent archtop from a period when epiphone was making great stuff. The only issue is the pick guard disintegrated is no longer with us. Super clean, rare in blond, a very nice guitar.

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...

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.

~1921 Gibson CB-4

$3,499
Tuned to cello-tuning, an octave below tenor banjo, CGDA. Gibson seems to have made very few of these 14" banjos. Calf-skin head. 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...

1969 gibson Byrdland

$5,500
The serial Number on this one is #805707, which happens to be one of the series of numbers that Gibson, in their infinate wisdom, used in both 66 and 69, so not sure which this one  is, there is no FON, not sure it makes much difference.  This was my wifes guitar for many years, but she now plays gypsy guitars so it has just been sitting in the closet.  It has a lovely 'ice tea' sort of sunburst,...

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,...

1932 martin 0-18

$8,500
Beautiful shiny excellent guitar. If you love early golden era martin guitars but dislike those pesky bar frets, this is the guitar for you, as the previous owner felt that way and put on a new fingerboard. There are a couple of minor tight hairlines on the edge of the back, one on the side. The bridge is the correct footprint but is either replaced or reglued. All and all a stunning guitar...

~1920 gibson L1

$1,700
This is a very nice guitar with a couple of minor issues: replaced tailpiece and a well repaired little crack with touchup under the tailpiece, not all that visable. The label is illegible, I am going to say about 1920 as it is a 13 fret model. This one really has an outstanding voice and plays exceedingly well.

1965 gibson Barney Kessel Custom

$5,500
Incredably clean and flamey almost unplayed example featuring a full 1 11/16" nut. It has a custom L5 tailpiece and the only thing keeping it from being near mint is that there are two chips at the edge of the peghead. Rare to find a full width neck model in this incredable shape. A stunning guitar in the OHC.
