~1930 Regal Style 1

A rare find...Regal made tons of guitars in the pre-war era, and most of us are familiar with the student level instruments that they produced that haven't held up so well because they weren't well made. However, Regal did make a line of high end instruments under their own name (and also for Bacon & Day, Recording King, and others) that were built too a high level of quality and have held up...

1915 CF Martin 1-21

1915 Martin 1-21 #12101 In its second century now and in great shape, ready to keep making music. The guitar bears the serial number on the neck block as expected but also in pencil under the top along with the initials "FHM", those being for Frank Henry Martin, CEO of the company at the time. Typical of Martins from the teens, the guitar is very lightly built and thus super responsive even...

1973 CF Martin D-35

1973 Martin D-35 SN. 318811...Indian rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top, this one owner D-35 has been played and shows some minor top finish wear around the fret board as a result but nothing major. The back and sides are crack free, the top has one minor pick guard crack (repaired) under the B string that is flat and tight. All of the interior bracing is original and intact including...

~1920 Gretsch 5 string open back banjo

There is no maker's mark or serial number anywhere on this instrument. However, from what little information I can gather about it, it might have been made by Gretsch given the peg head shape. This is speculative though and I can't say with certainty. The rim is 11" in diameter, made of maple and capped on the back in what looks like walnut, so I don't believe it ever had a back on it. The...

~1939 Gibson LC Century of Progress

c. 1939 Gibson LC Century of Progress This guitar is entirely original, right down to the chrome plated metal strap bracket that is screwed to the back of the headstock. There is a corresponding metal bracket that was mounted over the end pin which has been removed and the mounting holes filled, but it is included with the guitar. The lack of a pearloid headstock veneer dates the guitar to...

~1958 Kay TrueTone Speed Demon

The Kay Speed Demon is a thinline semi-hollowbody electric guitar with a Florentine cutaway. This is the model with three pick ups (some had only one). The guitar is entirely original and in very good condition. The original finish shows a little flaking here and there and some wear from handling and play but nothing serious. The pickups all work as does the switch and all the pots, though...

1966 Harmony Rocket

Stamped inside the F hole "3976H56". This one is clean and 100% original. The finish shows a small amount of red paint touch up at the end of the headstock, otherwise the original cherry red finish is intact with no dings or dents, very little sign of handling or play. There is a small section of binding replaced between the first fret and the nut on the bass side of the neck. Frets, neck,...

1958 C.F. Martin & Co. D-18

1958 C.F. Martin & Co. D-18 14 % off
#161467. This guitar was purchased by its current owner in 1969. Around 1980 he had the guitar refinished by a Martin warranty service agent near Phoenixville PA. The guitar also had a patch to the back and side done at that time, both are well done and under the finish (visible in the pics). The guitar has had its original tuners replaced with gold finish Grover Rotomatics, the upper mounting...

~1935 Regal B & J Serenader 00

This little Regal made B & J Serenader is very cool and unusual. The body is the width and length of a 12 fret 00 (14 1/8” wide and 19 3/8” long) but it has a neck with 14 frets to the body and a slotted headstock. Odd combination of features. Add a cherry burst, amoeba shaped tortoise pickguard and colorful B & J headstock decal and label and you've got one attractive package. Back and sides...

~1950 Regal Junior Jumbo

This Regal Junior Jumbo is likely from the late 40s or early 50s. The Junior Jumbo shape is similar to the Gibson made Kalamazoo KG-11, but the Junior Jumbo has a full 15" lower bout making it larger than the KG-11. The scale length is 24 3/4", the nut width 1 11/16". The back and sides are solid mahogany, the top is solid red spruce. The top is excellent quality and well quartered. The neck...

1964 C.F. Martin & Co. 000-28C steel string conversion

Serial number 194406. I converted this guitar from the original nylon string specs to steel string back in 2002. The guitar received a new European spruce top with scalloped 5/16" gauge traditional X bracing and style 28 rosette and herringbone top trim. The neck was replaced with a factory made (assembled, carved, fretted, inlaid with abalone dot position markers and finished) neck with a...
