1979 Gibson ES-175D

$3,995
It’s super-clean, plays super-fast, and sounds just like you always wanted two Gibson Humbuckers to sound on a traditional, full-bodied Gibson ES-175D. Absolutely beautiful finish too, a bit darker than most and we like that a lot. This guitar shows virtually no sign of ever having been anyplace other than in its case, under someone’s bed, for the last thirty-eight years. We’ve just gotten it all...

1965 Epiphone FT-30 Caballero

$1,495
Gotta be the best one of these, ever. For reasons unknown it has a glossy finish, usually reserved only for the far more expensive models; these are usually satin, gloss costs a lot more to do. Looks almost unplayed, has maybe a few scratches and that’s all. Perfect action too, real easy, as set up by us right here. Tons of clear tone for days, as only a solid-mahogany top guitar can have. The...

1935 Gibson L-5

$7,995
This has to be one of the very first “Advanced Model” Gibson L-5s, with the 17” wide body, from about as early in 1935 as can be, possibly even from 1934, which the FON inside the guitar does indicate. Regardless, it’s an absolutely stunning guitar. It took me quite a while to convince myself that there’s a coat of overspray on the original finish (which is all there too), it looks that great,...

1972 Fender® Jazz Bass®

$2,895
They just don’t get much cooler than this, right in the price slot. Got what some call the “hippie-wood” refin, so smooth and such a great color, to die for as they say. Better yet, the finish on the neck is all original and matches perfectly, nice and deep, and with those best-ever black block inlays and black neck binding you are so set. Even has the best-ever 70’s mod, DiMarzio pickups, of a...

1968 Martin 000-18

$3,595
We’ve always loved Martins from the late-1960s-early 1970s. We were selling them new back then and were always thrilled when we’d open a carton straight from the Martin factory in Nazareth PA, and say “Wow!” How solid is THIS one?”. Now, it’s almost fifty years later and I’m still so happy when I come across a real nice, clean, Martin from that period, especially a 000-size one, which are...

1971 Fender® Telecaster® w/ Bigby

$4,495
Yup. the Right One, with the Right Bridge and the Right Pickups. Official Fender Bigsby with Fender logo, cool bridge with six adjustable saddles, and everything else that’s cool and righteous. Rare Olympic White body finish and maple neck with original frets, in great shape. Original pots with undisturbed solder joints. Original hard shell case of course. C’mon! $4495 w/ohsc

1979 Gurian H S3R

$3,995
Great examples of Gurian guitars aren’t often seen these days, especially not in the model that’s considered by far the coolest and best and most useful, and certainly not in the rare, fancier version that we have here. The one that everyone is always looking for is the S3R, a 000-size instrument with rosewood back and sides and Sitka spruce top. There were however a very few made called H S3R,...

1955 Gibson ES-125

$2,595
Yup, we’ve got another one of these in stock again and it’s a real winner, truly. To us from its second owner, who barely used it, and it’s nice and clean too. Just thoroughly gone over by us right here in our own workshop. Its action is perfect, it’s got that hot hot original 1950s P-90 pickup, and all its other electronic components work perfectly too. The ES-125 was the workhorse of the Gibson...

1998 Fender® 52 Re-issue Telecaster®

$1,695
Doesn’t get any nicer than this. Almost twenty years old and in near-mint, practically unplayed condition; not a scratch on it and literally zero fret wear; I’ve seen way more wore-out ones in stores displayed as new. Has all the stuff in the case too: CoA dated 2/98, strap still folded and cable still wrapped up, polishing cloth, all them papers and and all the parts to convert to modern wiring...

1919 Vega Cylinder-Back Mandolin

$1,295
Here is a gorgeous mandolin that’s almost a hundred years old, from a major maker, in beautiful condition save for one aspect, and we’re offering it “as is” at an extremely low price. It is of the style known today as the “Vega cylinder-back” due to the unique shape of it’s back, and is one of their fancier, higher-grade ones at that. Its fingerboard inlays have been hand-engvraved in the style...

1916 Gibson A-3

$2,495
How sweet! And strong! In every way imaginable. This Gibson A-3 mandolin is simply gorgeous, essentially unused, and after only 101 years. Barely a scratch or a nick on it; no repairs or problems or issues of any sort on it, anywhere, ever, period, none. Frets 99% too. Action perfect, nice and low with every single note clear and LOUD. Tonally broad and wonderfully clean; have I extolled its...

~1950 Martin Style 1 Tenor Uke

$1,295
Since Martin ukuleles have no serial numbers, in order to date them we need to rely on experience (identifying features such as binding type, tuner type, etc.), and anecdotal evidence form former owners. This particular Martin tenor uke came to us from the son of its original owner, who tells us that his Dad had it “forever”. By examining its tortoise-type bindings, which it has both top and...

2013 Martin 00-21 Custom Shop

$2,895
An exceptional example of one of a very few Custom Shop guitars that we had Martin make for us a while back; we are thrilled to have this one return to us in near-mint condition. From the original de*unsafe*ion on our website: "A reprise of a very happy accident of a few years ago. We had ordered from Martin's Custom Shop some exact remakes of their famous 00-21 guitar, a model that was in...

1950 Gibson LG-3

$4,495
1950? Maybe. Has one of those factory order numbers inside that can be anywhere from 1947-52, and boy, does it not matter in this case. I have never, and I mean never, seen a Gibson of this period that looks so like it’s new, and I mean new. It appears to never have been out of its case, ever, except to get one sorta noticeable ding on the top (I’ll call this a badge of honor) and maybe a couple...

1975 Martin D-28 AUTHENTIC 1941

$3,995
One of the very, very best 1970s D-28s we’ve ever seen, and that’s saying something. Early-to-mid 1970s Martin guitars have often got a certain solidity that’s seen nowhere else, have a strength of tone like no others, and we always keep an eye out for s. This one is as solid as they come, in every way, and also has the rare sunburst finish on the top, hardly ever seen, with beautifully hand...

1968 Martin 0-28NY

$8,995
Here's a story for you, kinda thing can't be made up. In 1967, when I had been doing repairs and restorations for several years but before I had a store, I had my workshop set up in back of the Folklore Center, a storied place here in NYC. They had a Martin dealership but didn't know much about guitars at all and so I occasionally helped with the ordering. Well I got the idea that a 28-grade...

1975 Del Pilar Classical

$4,995
Guillermo Del Pilar was a most highly-respected builder of professional-grade classic guitars here in New York from the 1950s though the1990s. As a young aspirant to the world of guitar making and repair-restoration, I spent quite a bit of time in his workshop in the early 1960s and got to know him well; he was quite a wonderful man. This guitar came to me from the family of a musician who had...

2008 Gibson SG Faded

2008 Fender® Classic Player Jazzmaster™ Special

$599
Truly is a classic, with its hotter pickups and way-better bridge, but with all the traditional Fender Jazzmaster attributes. Gotten here new years ago, lovingly kept and literally scratch-free and wear-free. A very hot deal for a fact. $599 w/bag

1964 Epiphone FT45N Cortez

$2,495
To us from a lovely Memphis woman, the guitar's original owner since new, and lovingly cared for. This is the Epiphone answer to the Gibson LG-3; same factory, same woods, same bracing, same everything except the peghead shape and a slightly narrower neck. All original parts, including tuners, frets, bridge, etc. Smooth low action, lovely bright tone. Comes with new hard shell case.

1953 Gibson LG-3

$3,595
A beautiful, clean example of a beautiful, clean older smaller-bodied Gibson guitar. We had this one here years ago and it’s still in just as nice condition as when it left, wonderfully kept by it’s last owner. It is 100% original other than two small improvements, being replaced tuner buttons (but you all know about that), and a perfectly-made bone saddle replacing the original plastic one (I...

2009 Collings D-3H BaaaG

$6,995
Stunning. In every way. Aside from the fact, as many of you know, that Collings is no longer taking orders for Dreadnaughts with Brazilian rosewood backs and sides, or for any Brazilian rosewood guitars at all far as we know, this one is a total knockout. Ordered by us when new and sold by us as new, now back to us, from its original purchaser, in virtually untouched condition. The “Baaa" in its...

~1950 Martin Style 0 Soprano Uke

A truly charming older Martin ukulele at a very attractive price. From the 1950s and all solid mahogany everywhere, with of course rosewood fingerboard and bridge and genuine ebony nut, this is a perfect Martin soprano uke, lovingly cared for, nicely played in, and in beautiful original condition. No cracks, never needed a single repair of any kind, even has its original 1950s Martin patent...

1907 Gibson Harp Guitar

$12,000
A Gibson harp-guitar is quite an imposing and inspiring thing to see in person, especially if you’ve never seen one before. Gibson had them in their catalogs from about 1904-1937, in varying degrees of complexity and with varying numbers of sub-bass strings, though they are rarely seen having been made after the 1920s. The one we have here now is a rare, early one, with fixed scroll-type pin...

2010 Martin 000-28EC

$2,495
Who’s better than Eric Clapton? No one. And what’s better than an Eric Clapton Martin? Not much is what, at least not at this price. One owner, found out he couldn’t play right off and put it away for six years, just like that. So here we are with a near-perfect, barely ever touched, super-clean, lovely lovely 000-size Martin guitar with that nice 1-3/4” wide-at-the-nut neck and a whole lotta...

1935 Gibson L-00

$4,495
A lovely, very lightweight Gibson L-00 from the mid-1930s, to us from a dear friend in Tennessee. Black, ultra-cool finish, with the desirable “firestripe” pickguard. Plays as easy as anyone could ever hope for with a BiG, open tone, also has that loveliest of modified-V-shaped necks, with full 1-3/4” nut width. Older very well-repaired side crack at the waist, treble side where you’ll never see...

1969 Gibson RB-150

$1,795
With its cool, comfy, slightly shorter 30” scale length, the Fender Musicmaster Bass has always ben a favorite of everyone who wanted an easier-playing instrument, or a slightly less expensive one, or those who just loved the sound of these unique Fender basses. This one has exactly the right look of 40+ years: slightly checked finish on the body, slightly darkened natural finish on the neck, and...

1957 Gibson ES-125T

$2,595
Wonderful, rare Gibson neck shape, find it only in the very very late 1950s; a little wider, a little deeper, rounder, just great. A fairly rare takeoff on Gibson's tried and true deep-body ES-125 with its iconic P-90 pickup, but with the then-new and hip thinner body style, most often found only on an ES-120T with a Melody Maker pickup in it. Amazingly, no one has ever fooled with this guitar;...
