National Vintage Steel

This National vintage steel needs nothing but a new home, it is very clean and appears to have seen only light use through its previous ownership. There are a few minor dings on the neck but nothing through the finish nor anything that you'd feel when you play. The frets are in good shape, just some slight wear in the first position. The body has no dings/dents. The cone is excellent and...

2006 Kovacik Guitars 12 fret mahogany Dread

This guitar was assembled in my shop from Martin parts, essentially as an instrument of opportunity presented by the availability of a factory assembled body that I purchased at the Guitarmaker's Connection back in 2005. I bought the body at Martin, did the binding and purfling on the body, assembled and carved the neck, did the finish work and final assembly. The body is a 12 fret D with...

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...

Both top and back show all of the best qualities that these two...

~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...
