2017 Tracy Cox Parlor

$3,495
Tracy Cox is a spectacular luthier and even more spectacular at ultra-intricate inlay work. Tracy has done inlay for Martin on their $100K-200K guitars, and there is none finer. We have sold many of his guitars in the past; some of you may have seen them in these pages. This particular instrument is unusual for M/ Cox, a parlor-size instrument with a body shape based on an 1894 Washburn that he...

2011 Martin M-21 Steve Earle

$4,995
This is a most unusual opportunity. I get many requests for used Martin M-21 Steve Earle guitars due to my association with them and with Steve, and which model I designed with and for Steve. Martin made exactly 154 of them and stopped, but the demand is still obviously there. Most of them were done in natural finish, though I requested a very few with a special “1932 Shaded” finish on the top,...

2002 Matsuda OM Cutaway

$11,995
This is NOT a guitar you will come across at all, let alone one that's available, every day. It is one of Michi Matsuda’s finest, one of his first ten, Serial Number 9, made in 2002, and it is just about perfect. We ordered it from Michi back then, waited for what seemed like an eternity, finally got it, and it sold quickly, of course. Some years later it came back to us in virtually unplayed...

Martin made exactly 154 of them and stopped, but the demand is still obviously there.

1978 Guild® F-50

$2,595
Guild’s answer to the Gibson J-200, and did they ever hit a home run with this one! In beautiful clean condition with not an issue to be found; no repairs, no scrapes, no nothin’ but TONS of tone, the kind that only a great, maple-bodied Jumbo can give you. A one-owner guitar with a nice, crisp action, made almost twenty years ago in the best location that Guild ever had, Westerly, Rhode Island....

1978 Fender® Musicmaster™ Fretless

$995
Holy cow! How cool is this??!!?? A genuine, 1978 Fender Musicmaster Bass with special shorter scale length, converted to fretless. And….. What appear to be Joe Barden pickups, with on-off mini switches for each one! Hot Rod Special, just like them cool low-rider cars from Southern California! You’ll never find another, easier-playing, super hot fretless Fender bass again, not to mention the...

1962 Gibson J-45

$4,495
This has got to be the best 1960s Gibson J-45 anyone on staff has ever played, ever. Has that BIG TONE, as only a Gibson Jumbo can have and boy, does it ever have it. Got the right just-a-little-rough look too and it’s 100% solid through and through, courtesy of our own in-house shop. AND….it’s got the right neck, that slightly wider, slightly shallower contour that you can only find in a very...

1974 Fender® Precision Bass®

$2,395
Hard to know quite what to call the finish on the body of this cool Fender Precision Bass, natural or translucent white but it prolly doesn’t matter, it looks so fine. Appears to be a refinish on the body, definitely original finish in the neck. Shows excellent cosmetic wear, lots of gigs, with the action and the tone way on top. Priced great, especially for a 40+ year-old Fender, all set up...

~1960 TRUETONE Western Auto

$895
So you thought that auto parts stores didn’t carry guitars? From what I’m told, think again. This iconic Truetone, the three-pickup darling of the hipster set, has on its pickguard the musical note logo with Crown and a Triangle, symbolic of the letters “W” and “A”, for Western Auto, an independent chain of car parts stores started in California back in 1909 and leveraged into the obscurity of...

1974 Fender® Precision Bass®

$2,795
The one you want. As straight-ahead as they come and all nicely set up right here in our own in-house workshop. Beautiful neck, beautiful frets, beautiful iconic Fender sunburst finish, BEAUTIFUL TONE! Not only that but unusually well-balnced and light weight for one of these (please don’t ask us how much it weighs) and Original Fender hard shell case too. The one you want. $2795 w/ohsc

~1960 Telestar Guitar

$699
Now tell me just HOW can you resist this? 60s wildest Asian kitsch, in the form of, well, some kinda Fender copy, possibly, or something. About the best Gold Sparkle we’ve seen outside the Fender Custom Shop circa Buck Owens, complete with matching peghead. We got this from an electrical engineer/guitar nut who went over it with a fine-tooth ohmmeter, and we love it. Two hot single-coil pickups...

~1930 Kalamazoo Mandolin

$699
During the Depression years, Gibson came out with a line of budget-priced instruments under the Kalamazoo name, and when you find one today that’s been beautifully kept and lovingly cared for you’ve got a real gem. The KM-11 model was a popular one back then, but rarely do we see one in this fine condition. We originally found and sold this particular one in 1969 or ’70 and believe it or not, it...

1976 Fender® Starcaster

$2,995
Thought you knew cool? THIS is cool. Seems to be the darling of the hipster set these days, and I can see why. Way-out Fender 70s chic, ultra-solid semi-hollowbody, two fat Fender humbuckers, master volume control (?!?!?), and it’s hotter/n a two-dollar pistol. Rare natural finish, and not only is it 100% original and un-fooled with, it’s all set up to go for speed. I see more common versions of...

~1970 Gurian Jumbo Rosewood

$3,595
This the model of Gurian, those most wonderful and rare guitars, that everyone seems to want: the Jumbo body size with the big warm tones of sturdy East Indian rosewood, best-grade Sitka spruce, and ebony fingerboard. We’ve been known for years as being the Gurian experts, having worked with Michael Gurian since the 1960s and having helped him to design his guitars and run his New Hampshire...

1968 Martin 00-18

$3,495
Late-1960s Martin guitars, simply wonderful and so solid, and this one is a prime, prime example. Original to the bone, or, more accurately, ivory, which they were still using jin those days for nuts and saddles. I will admit though that the original pickguard was gone when we got it, typical of the period; we've made a nearly undetectable replacement here in our own shop. You could hardly ask...

1972 Martin D-18

$2,695
The early 1970s was a prolific time for American fretted instrument makers; the market for guitars was white hot. Not everyone who bought guitars back then took great care of them but when we come across a truly solid one, we’re all over it. Martins of this period can be unusually great, just dream guitars as soon as you pick them up, and this is one of those special ones. It is beautifully...

1935 Martin 0-17T

$2,895
A Marin tenor guitar this early is a pretty rare thing, especially one this nice. The 0-17T model was made from 1932-1961, so this is one of the earliest examples and it is a truly great one. Of all-mahogany construction, as 17-series Martin guitars were, it’s in beautiful all-original condition other than the bridge and saddle having been trimmed a wee bit in the distant past to get the action...

1979 Gibson ES-175D

$3,795
One of the last of the truly solid, truly great ones, from the 1970s. Beautiful dark sunburst finish in beautiful condition, beautifully kept all these years. Has all its original parts, never altered by anyone and still putting out all those warm jazz tones. Just set up here in our own shop with a proper set of.012 strings with a wound G, the way it should be since time immemorial. Perfect, and...

1946 Gibson ES-150

$2,995
46_es-150 I LIKE this guitar. A LOT. It’s got a certain solid feel, and look, and tone, that just makes you think of home. 1946, could be 1947, those year/dates are always in some small question but it does have the earlier *unsafe* logo, which most folks would call 1946, and so will we. Doesn’t really matter, it’s a truly early one and a rare one, with the larger 17” body for a deeper tone and...

1974 Fender® Jazz Bass®

$2,795
It’s a gorgeous Fender Jazz Bass, now more than forty years old and simply striking. The body has been mega-professionally refinished in Trans Blue, of such a deep shade that it was hours before I realized that it wasn’t black, the neck equally well done in natural, so subtly. Then you play it……… has all those super bright Fender tones for the ages and tons of ‘em, fairly jumps it’s so good, and...

1958 Supro Lap Steel

$695
Cool Gray/Black is what it is, a late-1950s Supro lap steel, with the pickup that everyone wants, that fabulous 3+3 pole job with the matte-black cover and control plate, got the tone for the ages, and plenty of it too. With its ultra-cool Pearloid-covered body, original bone nut, and brand-new, fine replica tuners (way better than the originals), it’s the perfect setup for blues, country....

1973 Martin D-18

$2,995
Once again, from one of the most solid periods of building of Martin guitars ever, this D-18 from 1973. It’s one of my favorite times and I always keep a lookout for real nice examples; this is certainly one. Never messed with, never fooled with, never needed a single repair of any kind (other than the tiniest of well-repaired “B-string cracks, you'd be hard put to find it). It plays like the day...

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....

~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...

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...
