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.

1954 Martin 00-28G

$4,200
A rare 00-28G with a red spruce top as is not all that uncommon for the period. Some pick wear and some capo marks that are not deep enough to be troublesome, completely original, crack and repair free.

~1957 Gibson ETG 150

$2,600
The ETG 150 is esentially an ES 125 with a bi tof extra binding. This one, however, unlike the ES 125 or ES 150, which are laminated, is fully carved and has a sound that reflects that subtle difference. This particular example is in stunning condition in the lovely original brown Lifton HSC. It plays and sounds as great as it looks.

1947 Martin 000-18 ad top

$4,300
Occasionally one encounters 1947 martins with adirondack tops, usually at this point they are 4 piece tops from smaller pieces, this one is a standard 2 piece top, and is essentially a 1945 in terms of conforming to the specifications of that year, and one of my favorite years for martins. This one does not dissapoint. Has wear and tear, but little neck wear or fret wear, just a tight pick...

1938 Gibson es 100

$3,400
An extremely rare early gibson electric, basically a small es 150 charlie christian with the legendary CC pickup and sound. I've had about 10 es 150 charlie christians, but this is the first es 100 I've seen. It is in very nice shape, a couple tight hairling back cracks, no top or side cracks, excellent playability, and the unsurpassed sound one expects from these early CC pickups. Everything...

1959 Gibson LG-3

$3,100
Just a lovely guitar in original condition, everything about this one is super. There is a bit of typical lacquer shrinkage at the center seam in the back, other than that it is just a fabulous example with great action and sound.

~1942 Gibson LG-2

$3,950
The FON in the records shows an LG2, but there is no specific date. This example is ad topped, completely original down to the bridge pins. It has its share of playwear, bumps and bruises, but there are no cracks or other issues to speak of, plenty of saddle, a big mahogany neck, and big sound to match. It sports the 'skunk stripe on the back and has an unusual and love reddish tone to the...

1937 Gibson L-5

$7,950
This L5 features parallel bracing rather than 'X' bracing, they came both ways that year. It is a fine player with the deep dark sound that is hoped for from this period. It has been played, but is in very good shape, one tight short hairline crack in back and missing the easily replaceable pickguard, most of those nitrocellulose pickguards from that period disintegrate. The tweed case is a...

1957 Martin 00-18

1940 Martin 00-18

$9,200
A gorgeous guitar with zero issues. Recent neck set. I acquired this guitar from an old player friend of mine about 15 years ago who wanted me to have it, it was his favorite guitar. I've held onto it for all these years, time to pass it on.

1917 Gibson L-3

$2,600
Completely original crack free example. The only issue is the case handle has been replaced. Some wear as to be expected with a 100 year old guitar, big neck, great action and deep dark sound.

1939 Gibson L-4

$3,950
What a stunning guitar. Minty, so shiny it is hard to photograph. A very rare 16" L4 with unusual inlays, a deep dark sound, perfect and original. The tuners are not original but are period correct.

1935 Martin 0-17

$3,700
A wonderful sounding guitar as one would expect from this hallowed year, just a little cannon. Great action and playability. Pick wear consistent with its age, one small tight crack on the top, replaced bridge.

1944 Martin 000-28

$9,800
This guitar was acquired from the son of the original owner who sent it back to Martin where it was retopped and refinished in pre war period style: Ad top, forward braced, small maple bridge plate and so on and so forth. So basically it is a brand new 1944 000-28.

1946 Martin 000-28

$22,500
A superb guitar, basically a 1945 in terms of appointments: Ad top, ebony fittings. Condition is stunning, recent neck set, zero issues. This guitar has the '46 neck profile, big, fat, round, feels more like the wide neck of the 30s. The Brazillian rose wood on the back and the sides are curly, obviously matched from the same log, perhaps the nicest rosewood we've seen. Huge sound. Love this...

1957 GuildĀ® grenada X50

$2,450
It's hard to imagine a nicer example of one of these since we really don't recall ever seeing one of these this early before, pretty early low production model. The pictures should speak to the unplayed aspects of this lovely guitar.

2006 Martin HD 28 custom lefty

$2,950
What a cool guitar. The custom features are pretty obvious: the old style laquered over glued on pickguard, made necessary by the pearl inlay, star inlays on the finger board and bridge, and clearly some pretty darn special Indian rosewood, much nice than one usually observes. The guitar is in almost unplayed condition, everything is like when 'Lefty' left the factory.

~1938 Gibson es150 T charlie christian

$3,150
This is just a wonderful example of a Charlie Christian es150 tenor. Completely original, no repairs ever done or needed, no cracks, no nothing. It has been played, but very well cared for and works wonderfully in terms of both sound and playability. A lot of folks think the original CC pickups have never been improved upon, and I am one of them, this one will not dissapoint. No FON visable.

2003 Gibson J100 extra

$2,200
Most J100 extras are not quite as fancy as this one, which is just a gorgeous guitar in almost unplayed condition in the original HSC. It has a pickup in it. Hard to imagine a nicer example

1952 Gibson J-200N

$9,950
A very nice early blond '52 J200 with exceptional saddle height, set up and sound. There are a couple of very tight hard to photograph hairline dehydration cracks along the top on the tail block, as well as a not really visible pickguard crack, other than that crazy clean and a really great one.
