2017 Heiden Octave Mandolin OM-9

Wonderful sounding octave mandolin by master builder Michael Heiden. It is a hybrid of sorts combining the lower register bellow of an octave mandolin with a mini archtop frame. It features the same body design of Michael’s 16” and 17” jazz guitar models scaled to 14”. This one is made with figured maple back and sides with an Adi spruce top and configured to a 21.5” scale. Ebony bridge,...

1937 C. F. Martin 0-17

SN 65641. We are in love with this little guitar for its sweet, sweet tone, and perfect playability. This was Martin’s entry-level model in 1937 with the lowest guitar price in the catalog. Its all-mahogany body aged to a dark patina makes if very handsome indeed. It has a gloss finish, no binding, black heeltap, one piece top and back, rosewood board and bridge, small position dots, faux...

2016 Wayne Henderson OM-42

2016 Wayne Henderson OM-42 10 % off
SN: 685. ON HOLD. Nearly new Wayne Henderson in Koa in collaboration with luthier Jayne Henderson. My understanding is that Wayne built and finished the box and Jayne provided the appointments. Stunning back and sides are highly figured, perfectly book matched, divided by a colorful arrowhead strip. The top is a Smoky Mountain Adi finished in sunburst and trimmed 42-style in abalone. A...

2018 Bagnasco & Casati Advanced Jumbo AJ

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...

1957 Gretsch 6120

SN: 22424. Very early (likely January) 1957 Gretsch Chet Atkins 6120 with mostly 1956 features. It is in terrific condition with a transparent red amber (orange) finish with just some light checking and a small bit of corrosion around the pickups. It has the right combination of features and function; humpback inlays, horseshoe inlay on the headstock, Chet Atkins signpost pickguard, the G-brand,...

1927 C. F. Martin 000-18

SN: 31429. This guitar has everything a great vintage guitar should have – tremendous bass, mids, trebles, response, sustain, volume — and curb appeal. The large body – very near the size of a dreadnought – and the 25.4” scale provide drive and power. The 1 7/8” nut and wide string spacing at the bridge make it a fingerpicker’s go-to guitar. The neck has the 20’s-style V, light radius of the...

1935 Gibson Roy Smeck Radio Grande

FON 85A. Extremely rare early 1935 Roy Smeck Radio Grande with Brazilian rosewood back and sides expertly converted from Hawaiian to standard play by Mark Tossman. The earliest Radio Grande builds were Brazilian and by 1936 all were East Indian Rosewood. This one is most certainly BRW and it’s a thrilling guitar in both appearance and performance. The conversion on this model is tricky and IMHO...

1957 Gibson Country Western Model SJN Southern Jumbo

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. These are versatile instruments known for more than country; blues (see my...

1926 C. F. Martin 0-21

SN 25367: Very fine example of one of Martin’s long running models in production since before the Civil War. The model has been “modernized” over the years with 1926 being the first year where many were braced for steel strings. It was Martin’s least expensive rosewood guitar and they remain relative vintage bargains today (compared with the 28 series). The top is choice Adirondack spruce, the...

1954 Gibson J-50

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....

1962 C. F. Martin 0-18T

Lower bout measures 13.5”, upper bout just under 10”. Scale length is approximately 23”. The finish is original and in nice condition with light playwear and a ding or two. Typical outside pickguard crack which I’m...

2009 National Style N

SN: 18506. NEW PRICE. 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. A traditional sunburst maple neck in matte finish is bound in ivoroid, with a wide 1 13/16ths” nut, solid headstock fitted with vintage-style engraved tuners and 14 frets clear of the body....

1997 Ron Phillips Tricone

SN: 16. German silver, curly maple neck with binding and simple inlaid woods. Ebony fretboard. Florentine style cutaway and woven grates. Hand spun cones installed with a sculpted t-bar from a proprietary alloy. The bridge, cover-plate, and headstock reflect Ron’s love of art deco style and mastery of materials. He details are immaculate down to the position markers which show a square detail...

1927 C. F. Martin 0-28K

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

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

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...

2005 Santa Cruz Guitar Company D/PW

2005 Santa Cruz Guitar Company  D/PW 11 % off
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...

1956 C. F. Martin D-28

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. There is the slightest bear clawing in the top, perhaps the reason for the sunburst. There...

~1928 Washburn 5238

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

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...

1954 Gibson J-50

One owner guitar from the heart of bluegrass country. At one time sported a Lester Flatt-inspired second pick guard . Some finish distress and playwear in that area sealed with french polish. 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...
