~1944 Gibson SJ Southern Jumbo

$12,750
1944/45 Banner Gibson SJ Description No FON/SN. Terrific sounding banner Gibson SJ in exceptional condition that has come to me in trade. There is no FON but the specs suggest 1944-1945. The warmth of the iced tea burst is matched only by the warm and woody tone of this fine guitar. Being a later banner, the neck is a very comfortable C shape of a reasonable size. A recent neck rest and refret...

2017 McAlister L-00/AJ

$8,500
SN: L-748. Here is an incredible, one-of-a-kind, custom order from Master Builder Roy McAlister. The inspiration is simple. In the 1940s Gibson made a small version of the J-45 – the LG-2 – and to a certain extent, a small version of the J-35 in the 1930s -- the L-00. What if Gibson made a small version of the legendary AJ? Here it is. Roy chose a figured BRW for the back and sides and bound them...

2019 Bagnasco & Casati Model 910 Gibson SJ Southern Jumbo

$8,750
In September of 2008 I sold a 42/43 banner SJ to someone named Andrea Bagnasco in Italy and didn’t give it a second thought. Now, eleven years later I’m wondering if that guitar provided some inspiration for this remarkable player. Offered here is a “Model 910” from the workbench of Bagnasco & Casati who produce some of the finest acoustic reproductions of Golden Era guitars. In 1942 Gibson...

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...

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...

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. I believe it’s the first AJ B&C have made. It was based on a detailed blueprint of...

FON: U 1861-23. Here’s a sweet rig to ride into the sunset; a 1957 Gibson Country Western Model in fine original condition. The Country Western Model is the blond “pardner” of the Gibson Southern Jumbo with the same appointments – parallelogram position markets, one-point pick guard, belly up bridge, torch inlay, and logo.

1954 Gibson J-50

$6,500
SN X8891. Here is a remarkably clean, great playing and sounding time machine that has been in my private collection for years. 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 banner years and one year before some unfortunate changes began to happen to the J-45 and J-50....

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...

SN 152776: NEW PRICE: Gorgeous and very rare Martin sunburst from 1956 in excellent condition. Original finish. The top has the fine checking typical of this vintage. The rosewood is quite select the Sitka top is very lively and resonant. The braces have been professionally and very cleanly scalloped in 30s fashion. On my watch, I've had a neck reset, a full refret, and a replacement bridge by...

~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...

Fun player with great tone...
