2014 Roy McAlister SmeckAlister

$6,500
As I search the planet for great old vintage guitars, I’ve come to realize that one of the greatest builders of contemporary guitars is right here in my own back yard. Roy McAlister most famously builds guitars for David Crosby and Jackson Browne and has converted numerous Gibson Roy Smeck Stage Deluxe models for Browne as well. He is a player’s builder and many fine guitarists play Roy’s...

1935 Gibson Roy Smeck Radio Grande

$19,995
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...

1950 C. F. Martin D-28

$7,000
SN 116400. Another guitar out of the collection of “Dr. Mike”. This 1950 D-28 has seen a number of repairs which I’ll go through here but overall it’s a straight player that sounds like a 50s D-28 should. The Brazilian is the nice tight grain everyone likes with one 5” dryness crack on the back capably repaired plus a small area of buckle wear and a scratch. The sides are fine. The top shows...

1961 C. F. Martin D-28

$6,950
SN: 177734. Early 1960s D-28 in fantastic original condition. Brazilian rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top, ebony bridge and fretboard. Top and back are bound in ivoroid, with black and white trim on the top and rosette, rear center strip inlay with chain pattern, faux T-shell pickguard. It still has the original maple bridge plate in fine condition. There is just a little checking on the...

1957 Gibson Country Western Model SJN Southern Jumbo

$5,250
FON: U 1861-23. Hey cowboy, 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;...

2004 Wayne Henderson Style F Mandolin

$12,950
SN: 90. From the shop of Wayne C. Henderson somewhere in Virginia we have this near-mint Style F Mandolin very much upholding the traditional of the Gibson Lloyd Loar mandolins from the twenties. Wayne maintains that building a mandolin is just as labor intensive as building a guitar and there are far fewer. The maple back and sides are gently figured, the spruce top is shaded in what appears to...

1941 C. F. Martin D-18

$28,500
SN 79480 – A quick note to let you know the owner has reduced the price on this exquisite guitar. This consignment instrument is the cleanest prewar dreadnought I’ve ever had in the shop – and one of the best sounding. The 1941 Martins were the highest expression of the post-1938 years, employing the best materials and design ideas available before the wartime shortages-- Adirondack top with thin...

1926 C. F. Martin 0-21

$7,500
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

$5,995
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

$1,850
SN 184177. Cool little tenor guitar in excellent condition from the heart of the folk era. Sitka top, mahogany back and sides, rosewood bridge and fretboard, bone nut and saddle. 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

$2,300
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

$3,500
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

$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

$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...

2005 Santa Cruz Guitar Company D/PW

$2,650
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

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

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...

1954 Gibson J-50

$4,350
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...
