1950 Martin 000-18

$3,800
This is a guitar that has seen very little use, almost no fret wear, all original, plays and sounds great. It has 3 extremely tight hairline cracks on the top, hard to see, and one obvious one on the back. At some point it had a very light overspray. The original tuners were off of it, but are back on at this point. A very clean nice guitar

~1953 Gibson em 200

$12,000
I acquired this from a lady about 15 years ago who had no idea what it was and was carrying it in a pillow case, completely filthy ( the mandolin, not the pillow case). At the time I did a bit of looking into it and was made to understand that there was another one out there, and was told they were made for the namm show in 1953, which makes sense as they appear to be cataloged in 1954. I put...

1927 Martin 2-45 T

1977 Ibanez George Benson

$2,400
I would think this is the nicest George Benson around. The only issue is the pickguard is starting to deteriorate as they are prone to do. I got this for my wife ( no, not a straight trade) many years ago, she ended up with a Byrdland instead because of the short scale length. It is in immaculate condition with all the case candy and plays perfectly and sounds amazing.

1954 Gibson LG-2

$2,900
Very nice and lovely sounding example in the original soft alligator case which is in very nice condition. Has the typical 'B' string pickguard crack repaired, but that is the only thing that has been done, no loose braces or any other issues. This guitar is from the scalloped braced period, and sounds wonderfull. It has a lot of the finish crazing one sees from this period.

1959 Gibson LG-1

$1,550
This is a really good one, sounds and plays great, small early rectangular bridge. There is a bit of touch up on the neck from wear, a spot where the pickguard has been glued, and the odd bit of wear here and there, nice 'bear claw' on the top. It has had the ubiquitous pickguard crack repaired, but it is really not visable.

1917 Gibson style 0 artist

$6,500
Most of these style ) artists end up with a heel crack. This one is one of the few that we have seen that is completely crack free, original down to the bridge pins. There is a little touch up on the back from wear, that's about it.

1938 Gibson Super 400

$9,500
I used to own this guitar 10 years ago and just got it back in trade. It is from the rare 'X' braced period with all the fancy engraved parts, upgraded imperial tuners, original leather case. It is one of the best and deepest darkest sounding archtops I have owned, completely original and only one little side crack at the bottom. The top shows some pickwear but the rest of it is super clean. ...

1962 Martin 0-18t

$1,950
Really nice shape, excellent neck angle, saddle height, frets, sound. The only things worth mentioning are a little overspray around the pickguard area, no reason for it, and a couple of marks on the back of the neck, super clean other than that. It is pretty much impossible to capture the little overspray area in the pics.

1944 Martin 00-17

$37,500
Very clean scalloped braced completely original guitar. Fresn neck set. There is some weird mottling of the finish as '44 is prone to, but other than that a really fine example. Fresh neck set, no fret wear, one very minor hairline crack in the lower back.

~1915 Knutson mandola

$3,500
I have had (and still do) more harp mandolins than anyone in their right mind, but this is the only harp mandola I have ever seen. It has a 14" scale and is, well, rather large. The pic with the Dyer shows its relative size. Great shape and works well.

~1937 Regal bronson 'nick lucas' sterhonolulumaster

$2,950
These came in all manner of constuction: round neck, square neck, ladder bracing, x bracing,plywood or solid tonewoods. This is one of the few that feature solid brazilian back and sides, Ad top, the famous 'double X' regal bracing, pearl binding. . This one is the 'Nick Lucas' body. As well, it has had a neck set and I believe a refret, and then a fabulous set up at Shoenbergs shop. This...

Martin MC 40 custom

$3,500
This gorgeous guitar was a martin employee guitar from back in the day when certain employees were allowed to make their own guitar as evidenced by the lack of a serial number. I believe the top is Adirondack, made with 40 style appointments. This is really a marvelous guitar, fantastic sound. It was my wifes choice of guitars for many years until she joined me in falling off the deep end and...

1928 Martin 2-45 T

$19,000
One of 4 style 45 tenor guitars ever made by Martin. Braced for steel strings, and a great player as well as a lovely guitar. Pick wear and a tight hairline crack on the top, the rest of the guitar is pristine. By all accounts the pickguard is probably original, martin was known to put custom white finger rests when ordered during that period, and undoubtedly this was a custom ordered guitar.

1950 Epiphone triumph tenor

$2,500
What a fabulous tenor! a full 17 1/2" across the lower bout, super condition, playability, sound, completely original, just a joy to play. The two marks below the fingerboard are just that, marks left from the felt of the D'armond 'guitar mike' pickup that comes with it, which seems to be in great shape as well. Great original hard case.

1946 Martin 00-17

$2,500
What we have here is a 1946 the was retopped and refinished by martin, it appears they did a neck set at that point. it retains the original brazilian bridge, the top is redone in period style with a small maple bridge plate. So it is sort of a new 1946 00-17

1970 Martin 0-18

$1,850
Nice clean guitar with a replaced pickgaurd, the generic pickguard crack, and the obvious belt buckle wear that has some finish on it. Very nice sounding and playing guitar that needs nothing, but the saddle is as low as you would want it.

1933 Gibson L-7

$3,600
We have named this guitar the 'mystery L7' This guitar has a FON from 1933, and a gibson finish from, well, I don't know, but certainly later than 1933. Why does it have dots rather than window frames which would normally be found during that period. Is it early enough that it could be a prototype with dots? That could just be gibson being gibson, with all of the oddities that show up, special...

1970 Martin D18 S

$2,700
First introduced in 1967, this is a stunning example of one of Martins low production models. A little finish checking in a few places, original pickguard is just starting to curl a little bit, but essentially clean as a whistle, still sports brazillian fingerboard and bridge.
