1951 C. F. Martin D-28

$10,950
SN 118738. Earlier this year I sold an outstanding 1951 D-28 and I’ve wondered if that was just a freaky good guitar or was ’51 a crazy good year? When I had the chance to buy another, I jumped on it. Sure, it’s a small sample but I’m ready to declare ’51 a crazy good year for the D-28. In '51 Martin was still making guitars by hand in the old North Street factory with super high quality...

2000 John Arnold Guitars D-29 B

$18,500
SN: 51. Reposting to show off some new pictures and a new price. John Arnold’s guitars are as rare as hen’s teeth and this one is particularly special. Built for a family friend, “# ‘51” has a very select top cut from a hand harvested 407-ring Smokies Red Spruce log downed by hurricane Opal.

1946 Gibson J-45

$5,950
No FON – Welcome return of an outstanding J-45 I sold more than a decade ago to Andreas Bagnasco, now a partner in Bagnasco & Casati, guitar builders extraordinaire in Savona, IT. The tone is characteristically dry, open, and woody like a good ol’ Gibson should be. The guitar plays beautifully with low action and clarity up the neck. The neck profile is a comfortable C-shape with a very mild...

1946 C. F. Martin D-28

$22,500
SN: 97969. Very fine example of a late herringbone-era D-28. Identical to the wartime D-28s with the exception of a heftier neck profile, Sitka spruce top, and the introduction (in 1945) of tapered bracing. The tapered bracing combined with the Sitka offered a stiffer top with more stability than the Adirondack and scalloped bracing. The resulting tone is more focused, particularly on the bass...

1947 C. F. Martin 000-28

$9,500
SN: 99451. Gorgeous postwar 000-28 in remarkable condition and crazy good tone. The voice has some dreadnought characteristics with a big attack. There are overtones up and down the neck, nice volume and no dead spaces anywhere. I’ve had two luthiers tell me the top is Adi and it may be but it is developing that wonderful dark look that old Sitka gets. This is the first year after the herringbone...

SN: 1170403 Just in on consignment is this near mint 2006 D-18 Authentic 1937. Beautifully set up and fun to play.

1933 C. F. Martin OM-18

$16,500
SN 47793. Very fine playing and sounding shade top OM-18 from early 1933. The ‘31s are for collecting but the ‘32s and ‘33s are for playing. This one has had plenty of play but is still architecturally solid. It has the 25 1/4” scale, a 1 ¾” nut with the wider string spacing at the bridge, small position markers on the neck, stenciled logo and stamp on the back of the neck, original tuners and...

2009 National Style N

$2,450
SN: 18506. 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 and nickel plated steel.

~1944 Gibson LG-2

$3,750
FON illegible. Here is a banner LG-2 from 1944 in excellent condition and playing shape. It is the quintessential wartime banner utilizing almost all North American materials: four-piece spruce top, multi-piece mahogany back, gumwood bridge and fretboard, poplar neck block, and maple and walnut neck with ebony reinforcement. Despite the Heinz 57 pedigree, it plays and sounds like a thoroughbred....

1941 C. F. Martin D-18

$30,500
SN 79480 – This exquisite consignment instrument is the cleanest prewar dreadnought I’ve ever had in the shop – and the most original. The 1941 Martins were the highest expression of the post-1938 years, employing the best materials available before the wartime shortages. This one has the best Adirondack with thin straight grain and the best “modified V” design for the 1 11/16” neck with T-bar....

SN: 16. German silver, curly maple neck with binding and simple inlaid woods. Ebony fretboard. Florentine style cutaway and woven grates.

2006 William "Bill" Moll OM-42K Prototype

$4,995
SN P200601. Prototype flattop guitar hand from renowned archtop luthier William E. Moll III. This one-of-a-kind prototype is kind of a formal presentation or performance edition incorporating every feature available on his guitars with the exception of a cutaway. Every detail is meticulously executed. And there are lots of them. The top is a select Sitka, the back and sides an ultra-flamey, very...

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...

1947 C. F. Martin D-18

$8,500

It’s very clean and architecturally solid despite some honest playwear on the top. It plays easily up and down the neck with great volume, nice chordal blooming, and crisp note separation. It’s had a neck reset sometime in the recent past and and very recent refret and...

~1925 Weymann Orchestra Style 2 Model Guitar Banjo

$2,500
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. The Style 2 Orchestra model Guitar-Banjo was a catalog item briefly in the mid-1920's when the Megaphonic line was line was introduced but was only made in very small quantities....

1946 C. F. Martin 5-18

$2,995
SN 95705: The Martin style 5-18 is the smallest guitar in Martin catalogs; at the lower bout, it measures 11.25″, while at the upper bout it is 8.25″. And its body is just 16″ in length, with a scale of 21.4″. In 1930s catalogs, the style 5-18 and the less expensive matching size 5-17 were listed with the caption “Junior, or three-quarter, sizes fine for children; easy to hold and to play.” They...

2015 Matt Arcara MGA Guitars OM-18

$3,500
SN 108 New price. Here is an interesting and elegant guitar by young Maine-based luthier (and Winfield flatpicking champ) Matthew Grant Arcara. He makes a very clean guitar with an eye toward materials and subtle design. Matt generally builds dreadnoughts so this OM is a bit of a departure and a rarity. The top is a select Adirondack spruce and the back and sides are straight grain mahogany. The...

1963 C. F. Martin 000-28c

$3,950
SN 189,091. The 000-28c is a larger bodied classical guitar introduced by Martin in 1961 and made in small numbers until it was discontinued in 1965. The model is prized for the elongated 20’s style 15” body and some of the finest Brazilian rosewood in Martin’s stash. They are fair classical instruments, fun to play as folk guitars, and make fine conversions to 12-fret, long scale steel string...

1942 C. F. Martin 0-15

$3,500
82375 – A very nice example of Martin’s simplest production model that was designed to meet the needs of a nation struggling to come out of depression. I’ve read that Martin prototyped a couple of these in birch and/or maple but decided on mahogany. An entry level or student guitar to some, the 0-15 would be a big step up for someone playing a birch flattops with a tailpiece. This one has a...

2005 Santa Cruz Guitar Company D/PW

$2,650
SN: 4984. NEW PRICE. Here is a very finely crafted dreadnought in showroom condition with the forward X and scalloped bracing of a prewar Martin dread with East Indian Rosewood back and sides and style 18 type appointments. Santa Cruz considers this an entry-level guitar but the quality is comparable to their high end, particularly the tone woods. The Sitka top is quite select with fine, even...

1957 C. F. Martin D-28

$15,500
SN 152776: 1957 Martin D-28 SN 152776: 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. There is the slightest bear clawing in the top, perhaps the reason for the...

1940 C. F. Martin 00-18

$6,995
SN 74787. I’ve been very fortunately to find some great guitars this year in both the player and collector category. Here is an excellent players guitar purchased from the same family as the 1946 000-21 and clearly this one got the majority of the playing time. It has the open, woody, and sparkly sound I love from the Martin mahogany small bodies. It appears to have had a lifetime of strumming...

1946 C. F. Martin 000-21

$10,500
SN: 93875. NEW PRICE. Very clean one-owner example of one of Martin’s long running models made in small quantities. I think of the 000-21 as the photo-negative image of its cousin the 000-28; with herringbone inlayed around the sound hole rather than the top, black pins with white dots as opposed to white with black dots, black and white binding versus the black and white rosette of the 28. But...

~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...

SN: 22424 Iconic early-1957 Gretsch Chet Atkins 6120 in terrific condition with a transparent red amber (orange) finish. Though technically a '57, the guitar has the right combination of features generally associated with a '56; humpback inlays, horseshoe inlay on the headstock, Chet Atkins signpost pickguard, G-brand, DeArmond single coil "Dynasonic" pickups, and second generation Bigsby with...
