1956 Gibson ES-175

$3,495
A really nice handful of everyone’s favorite kind of Gibson ES-175, straight from the 1950s, with a single P-90 pickup in the neck position, just where Wes Montgomery and Herb Ellis loved them. Best original-style refret I’ve ever seen, you’d think they were original and unplayed, which is exactly what you want, ditto perfectly smooth repro tuners; solid rosewood bridge top perfect replacement....

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...

2013 Martin D-28 AUTHENTIC 1941

$4,995
This guitar is startlingly close to an original 1941 Martin D-28 in every way (I’ve owned three originals from that year), other than a $100K price tag. The Madagascar rosewood on this particular example is so close to Brazilian, in looks and in tone, that it might be difficult to tell the difference when playing it with a blindfold on. You all know the deal with these: it’s constructed the real...

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...

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...

1971 Fender® Competition Mustang®

$1,995
Fender Competition Mustang! Red! 1971! C’mon folks, saddle up and go! Hard to get any classier than this: beautiful red almost-metallic paint, all original stuff including great frets, pickups, tuners, and those white racing stripes! All set up and ready to go at only $1995 w/bag

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...

2007 Moonstone 6/12 Acoustic

$3,995
Some of you may have seen the fabulous, custom-built Moonstone solidbody electric guitar we had here a few months ago; this guitar almost makes it pale by comparison. It was made by noted luthier Steve Helgeson, in 2007, for the same person for whom the electric had been made in 1982, who called himself Johnny Redwood (from whose estate we got the guitar), and the initials “J” and “R” are inlaid...

1972 Gibson RB-250

$2,395
Gibson serial numbers from the 1970s are a bit opaque, but we can safely call this banjo as being form the early 1970s, with 1972 being a very educated guess. Regardless……It’s a real, honest-to-goodness Gibson Mastertone from the just-post-“bowtie inlay” era, when they finally realized that the pre-war inlay patterns and pearl-inlaid script peghead logos were indeed quite cool. It has the 1920s...

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;...

1952 Gibson J-50

$5,995
BOOM! There is nothing, and I mean nothing, like the tone and volume an earlier Gibson Jumbo, as in the J-50 and J-45 models. When you pick up a truly great one, start to play it, the very first note just grabs you in the gut and you take off from there and it's hard to stop. That’s exactly what we have here, a 1952 Gibson J-50, having the rarer natural finish as opposed to the more common...

2006 Gibson Les Paul Studio

$1,395
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. Take me home for only $1395 w/ohsc

1953 Gibson J-45

$6,995
Gulp. That sound, from the early 1950s, Gibson BOOM all the way, couldn’t possibly sound any more like the earlierJ-45 of your dreams than it already does. Mild overspray barely noticeable, perfect neck reset, ready to go. $6995 w/hsc

1893 J.E. Dallas Banjo

$1,395
From our great friends across The Pond, before the turn of the century (no, not that one; the one before that) comes this beautiful J.E. Dallas five-string banjo, dated by banjo expert nonpareil Leo Coulson of Salt Lake City as being from 1893. In obvious emulation of and showing great admiration for the wonderful SS Stewart banjos from Philadelphia at the time, it is a wee bit more robust in...

1934 Martin 0-17

$5,995
They don’t get much cooler than this, in a pre-war Martin or at all for that matter. One of the very first Martins ever to have modern T-type frets (they all had bar frets up until sometime in 1934), and a neck size and contour to dream about: a true 1-3/4” at the nut, and a wonderful handful of a modified V-shape, can’t beat it and never duplicated for comfort, by anyone, to this day. This...

1946 Gibson LG-2

$4,995
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 “script 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...

1976 Fender® Stratocater Hard Tail

Hardtail Strat, hard rock Strat. True. Solid ash body, maple neck, staggered pole-piece pickups, come on!. All original, solid as they come, and HOT! You always wanted one like this……… $2495 w/hsc

1960 Gibson LG-1

$2,995
A Gibson LG-1 for the ages, as nice and tasty as they come. Aside from being so clean and original, it’s got that rare, slightly wider, flat-oval-shaped neck that seems to have existed on Gibson guitars for only about twenty minutes, around 1960. It plays like a dream and has the sound of the early 1960s as well. A perfect, smaller-bodied earlier Gibson guitar. $2995 w/ossc
