2012 Collings Baby

$1,995
Well we think it’s from 2012 but can’t know for sure as the serial number is covered up by the battery holder of the expensive pickup system (looks like top Fishman stuff to us), but she thought that her ex mighta bought it around then…………doesn’t matter. It’s a rare, terrific, smaller Collings and you’d never find another like it, used, anywhere else, and it’s a steal. Comparable to the Martin...

2014 Martin Custom Shop 00-42 12-Fret

$4,995
Someone got one heck of a great guitar made for him here, then decided that what he really wanted was a Dreadnaught and his loss will be your huge gain. This an untouched, literally, nearly brand-new Martin Custom Shop 00-size 12-fret guitar with stunning tonewoods and appointments to match. Based on an original 00-42 model from the 1930s, it’s got correct hand inlaid abalone trim around the edge...

2014 Collings D-3HG

$3,995
I don't think another one like this can be found, unless it came from us. I've had Collings make about a half-dozen guitars with these exact specs over the past twenty-five years, and every single one of them has been beyond stunning, in every way. A traditionally-dimensioned Dreadnaught with standard neck width, Indian rosewood back and sides for warmth of tone, and with a German spruce top for...

2014 Collings CJ-35G

$3,995
An absolutely stunning example of Collings' finest, the CJ 35, with hand-tuned bracing and hand-selected German spruce top. Built along the lines of Gibson's J-35 of the 1930s, this mahogany-bodied jumbo has a quality of materials, workmanship, and tone that no one else can or ever could match, ever. Bought here new a year ago and now back from its original purchaser, who unfortunately had to...

2015 Collings C10 DELUXE

$3,995
The Collings C10 is based on the body shape of the venerable Gibson L-0 / L-00 models of the 1930s. Collings has taken this basic design to new heights with their impeccable craftsmanship and ultra-smooth construction, while maintaining a true balance throughout. This particular example has Indian rosewood back and sides, something that Gibson never did with the L-00s, and a Sitka spruce top....

2016 Lowden F-25c

$3,995
This is the upscale version of George Lowden’s famous Original Series mahogany guitar, this one in rosewood and both with cedar tops. George is one of the very few guitar makers today with something truly new, and different, and of exceptionally high quality to say with his instruments. They’re not Martin copies, they’re not Gibson copies, they’re not anyone’s copies at all, and they’re anything...

2013 Martin Custom Shop M-42

$6,995
Yet another fabulous one-off piece from Martin's Custom Shop. Also known as "M" or "0000", this guitar is one of only four that were specially built for us using woods personally selected by me. The back and sides are stunning Madagascar rosewood and the top is of extra-select Alpine spruce. All dimensions are as in the original M-size guitar that I built for David Bromberg in 1967, which Martin...

~1920 Maurer 13 Inch

$4,295
This is one of the sweetest little guitars we've come across in a very long time. Unlike most Maurers of the 1920s, its back and sides are of mahogany, it has straight bracing, and its appointments are beautifully understated. With its 12-3/4" wide body, it is about the equivalent in size of an early 0-model Martin, and is as neat as can be. The tones are brilliant and fine, the action is...

1946 Gibson LG-2

$4,495
From the seemingly endless stream of Gibson LG-2s from 1946 or thereabouts comes this one, ostensibly from 1946 (but who could really know for sure?), and…… it’s got the highly desirable and much coveted “*unsafe* logo” which, I’m sure you know as do we all, makes it sound better. Weird thing is, it seems to really be true, at least in this case. It does sound FABULOUS, and we’re experienced...

2008 Gibson Les Paul '59 Reissue

$2,995
Here’s a truly great one, and an unusual one, and someone is going to get a steal of a bargain. From about ten years ago, a Gibson 1959 Les Paul reissue with a beautifully flamed-mape top. It’s in tremendous condition and all set up right here in our shop and ready to go. The unusual thing about it is that its former owner tells me that the top was replaced (??!!??!) by Gibson, for reasons...

2013 Ome Oro

$1,995
Wow! An OME banjo, absolutely and with no doubt about it the neatest, most beautifully designed and made banjos sold in America, ever (IMHO) and made here as well. With the OME Company making only about 150 banjos a year, these folks, since the 1960s, have been at the forefront of those who Know Their Stuff, and we couldn't be happier to have it. We’ve been OME dealers for years (one of maybe...

1954 Gibson ES-175

$5,995
An absolutely stunning, early, natural finish Gibson ES-175 from “the time”, doesn’t get any better. It is SO gorgeous and SO clean that I had to look with my favorite magnifier to satisfy myself that the finish was original and the answer is overspray, and I don’t mind one bit. Stupendously fabulous job btw and why anyone would do it is beyond me, but the real bottom line is that it feels, and...

1959 Fender® Champ®

$1,095
Who wouldn’t love a 1959 Fender Champ lap steel? Especially this one, has all the charm and more. To us from Somewhere in Florida, beats me as to where but it certainly has played some music though I can’t imagine what kind. Hula stuff to woo all the palm trees there? Western swing through the South way back then? Way cool original Desert Sand (do I have that name right?) Fender paint job on...

1974 Martin D-18

$3,295
A brilliant Martin D-18 from one of the most solid periods of building in Martin's history, the early-1970s. Perfect action for flatpicking and fingerpicking both, huge clear tone for miles and miles, a really nice, wonderfully playable and thoroughly enjoyable D-18 from over forty years ago. Real nice tight Martin overall with no cracks, no repairs; original American-made Grover Rotomatic...

1926 Gibson L-0

$5,995
What a wonderful 1920s Gibson flattop guitar, with such a wonderful story. From 1926 (per the Spann book of pre-war Gibson FONs), of the type many people today call “the Robert Johnson model”, it’s of Gibson's earlier body shape, with mahogany back and sides and a spruce top. In extremely solid condition, with only one very minor back crack way off to one side and a small indiscretion on the...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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

$699
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...

1969 Gibson RB-150

$1,495
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;...

2006 Gibson Les Paul Studio

Of the finer “Premium Plus” variety, now ten years old about dead perfect, virtually unplayed. Gorgeous flamed maple top usually found only on the WAY higher-priced Gibson Les Paul models, it’s a true honey. One-piece mahogany body, one-piece mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, the works.
