1933 C. F. Martin OM-18

$16,500
SN 51340. Shaded top OM-18 from the third year of production when only 225 were made and fewer still with the dark top option. I’ve had a number of OM-18s over the years but I am hard pressed to remember one set up so and well and with such a colorful tone. This is a fairly well-known guitar currently known as “Diamond Jim”. NYC luthier Ken Fallon is responsible for the neck reset and refret. The...

2019 McAlister D-28

$8,500
SN: 170581. Sensational sounding and playing Roy McAlister Brazilian D-28 with an interesting back story. This started life as a 1959 Martin D-28 that sustained a serious impact injury to the top. The back and sides were unmolested. Roy’s original mission was simply to retop the guitar. But being the perfectionist he is, it became much more than that. Roy completely disassembled the guitar and...

2017 Bagnasco & Casati D-18 12-fret

$5,950
This stunning D-18 12-fret slotted headstock in 1935 sunburst by Bagnasco & Casati Guitar Makers of Savona, is just in on consignment. When I first opened the case, I thought it might be from Henkes & Blazer rather than B&C so I immediately pinged Andreas. He replied that “The finish on that D-18 is the German lacquer that we were (sic) suggested by Willi and Rudie”. It seems this is part of a...

1963 C. F. Martin 00-21NY

$5,750
SN 188241. Purchased from the original owner who, in the heart of the folk revival, saw Bob Dylan and Mississippi John Hurt at the Newport Folk Festival and was inspired to learn to play. She bought this guitar as soon as she returned home and set out to learn “Freight Train”. Aside from a little playwear and a few dings on the butt-end, it remains largely the same today as it was then. The...

2009 National Style N

$2,350
SN: 18506. Hot-sounding German Silver Style N constructed with the same material and style as the Style N's of the late 1920's. The body, coverplate, and tailpiece are highly polished nickel-plated steel (aka German Silver). The "N" is the Style "O" without the Hawaiian style etching. Also similar to the "Don" but without the fancy neck. A solid blues guitar. Traditional sunburst maple neck in a...

$25,950
SN: 55649. Early 1934 000-18 with long 25.4” scale, bar frets, ebony neck reinforcement, ebony nuts, with the top shaded dark. It is, essentially, an OM-18 before the transition to short scale, T-frets and steel neck reinforcement. This powerhouse has been played and enjoyed with two predominant patterns – strum wear on both sides of the fingerboard tongue and pick wear into the wood south of the...

1950 Gibson J-45

$5,500
FON 3988 2. Handsome J-45 from 1950 with some touchups and repairs but it sounds as great as it looks. I took this in trade from another dealer. You can still find the other listing online for further description and pictures. The headline on this one is that SOMEONE has given it a dead solid perfect neck reset and setup. It plays perfectly with the original frets and replaced saddle and nut. It...

2018 Bagnasco & Casati Advanced Jumbo AJ

$8,750
Bagnasco & Casati Guitar Makers of Savona, IT is one of the finest shops producing guitars in small batches with prewar materials, glue, and designs. This acoustic powerhouse is their faithful reproduction/interpretation of Gibson’s “D-28-killer” the Advanced Jumbo made in very small numbers between 1936 and 1941.

Introduced into production 1947, following a single batch in 1942, the J-50 is essentially a J-45 with a natural top. The architecture of 1954 edition is much the same as the...

1927 C. F. Martin 0-28K

$7,500
SN 33068 – The 0-28K played a leading role in Martin history as one of the first steel string models offered under the Martin imprint. The unique tone of Koa wood has given the guitars an appeal wider than the original Hawaiian music for which they were originally developed and many have been converted from Hawaiian to standard play. The 0-28K is the fancier of the two models Martin offered and...

~1925 Weymann Orchestra Style 2 Model Guitar Banjo 10 % off
Weymann Orchestra Style 2 Model Guitar Banjo (1925), made in Philadelphia, PA. An extremely rare instrument; Weymann's 1920's banjos are fairly well known in tenor form, but 6-string guitar variants hardly ever surface.

1956 C. F. Martin D-28

$13,500
SN 152776: NEW PRICE: In the 50s Martin was still making guitars largely by hand in its old North Street plant and the quality is quite evident. Here is a gorgeous and very rare Martin sunburst in excellent condition from that period. The rosewood is quite select the Sitka top is very lively and resonant.

~1928 Washburn 5238

$5,500
SN: 1809. Washburn 5238 from the late 1920’s made in the Lyon & Healy factory in very nice condition. Many of the impressive instruments from lesser known brands of the 20’s and 30’s compete very favorably with Martin and Gibson in workmanship and tone. This 14" 00-sized competitor to the 00-28 is no exception. The very lightly braced top combine with the rosewood back and sides to provide rich...

1935 National Style 0

$3,750
SN: S6442. Killer sounding and rare 13 ½ fret National Style O with slotted headstock. Seeing the future the Dopyera brothers sought to create a 14-fret guitar without retooling the body. The result is a longer scale Style 0 made only a short period of time. The added scale length got them almost to 14-frets clear (but not quite) but it gave the guitar a different character. It has the bound...

Otherwise in excellent, played condition. Recent neck set and refret. Full height exact repro bridge. One case bite that turned into a 3" crack has been cleated and drop-filled. Fun player with great tone...
