Our "Cash price" policy: unfortunately, the credit card companies support "swiped" charges in which the card is physically run through the card reader. Phone-in charges are charged at a much higher rate (to the seller) which can take quite a big chunk out of a high-dollar sale. Thus, for those call-in sales, let's discuss the issue at the time; hopefully, we can figure some way to deal with it.

1978 Gilchrist F-2

Early Version, Made for Ry Cooder New, Recent Top By Gilchrist Round-Hole Perfect Condition Very early, serial no. 022, Steve's second year, made for Ry Cooder (his name is on the neck block), now with a new recent top by the maker. Woods are spruce top and maple back & sides. Steve Gilchrist is the top mandolin builder of our time, building carved instruments fully by hand, from Lake Gnotuk,...

1982 Gilchrist F-5

An early (1982) X braced fern F-5, very similar to Ronny McCoury's; it's been played a lot so it has some finish issues and a repaired peghead crack, and sounds incredible. The Cremona finish is crazed in an odd way, yet still gorgeos, and the quilted maple back is quite impressive. The board is curved and the tuners are backwards.

~1935 Oahu Jumbo Deluxe

Oahu catalogs offered a number of quality, high-end flat tops through the thirties, with the X-braced early '30s 'Jumbo' and 'Jumbo Deluxe' being the most sought by players today. The Oahu Jumbo evolved in essentially two phases, the first being X-braced and 14 1/2" across at the lower bout, and the second phase, beginning in '36, measured 15 1/2" across the lower bout and was usually ladder...

1966 Gibson ES-335

1911 Gibson F-4 3-Point

Late Version Steeper Neck Angle & Higher Bridge Rare Black-Face A rare black-face three-point F-4, the model with the most incredibly beautiful peghead inlay. An unusual and positive feature of this one is, due to its from the last year for the 3-points, it has a steeper neck angle, thus higher bridge and stronger tone. This one has been played a lot, shows much wear, including a...

1926 Martin 000-18

Twelve Fret Neck / Slotted Peghead Feather-Light Construction Set Up for Steel-Strings Light as a feather with an absolutely gigantic sound, this guitar combines the feather weight of early small parlor guitars with what was then a gigantic size, to give a unique richness and depth of tone. Think of a fabulous extra-light OM-18 and then add the tremendous effect of the longer 12-fret body, a...

1936 Martin 000-18

One of the greats, this early 000 has more than its fair share of depth, richness and response. Refinished amber burst in the style of Martin's earliest shade tops, with its original brdge, braces, pickguard and tuners. Repairs include a side patch and one or two side cracks, neck reset and new peghead decal. The repairs were done by Ross Teigen of Hawthorne, Florida, and are wonderfully done.

1935 Gibson Nick Lucas Deluxe

1935 Gibson Nick Lucas Deluxe 14 % off
The most successful maple Gibson that I've played! The deep body of the NL, at least on this one, is particularly successful with maple. With the mahogany and rosewood NLs the deeper body can sometimes detract from the focus and responsiveness, whereas the punchy maple-ness gets deepened and rounded out with the deeper body. There's a subtle archtop-ness from the maple, with much richness,...

1968 Martin D35 S

12-fret Dreadnoughts are a specialized society - a certain class of extra-discerning afficianados are aware of the unique set of characteristics inherent in the better examples of these models. The most important aspect of the better examples is the small bridgeplate, which ended somewhere in 1968 or '69. This D-35S may be among the last of those, and as a result has a deep, thick, rich tone that...

1931 Gibson SS Stewart

An extremely rare (though a different one from our last one a month ago!) 12-fret L-2 style flat-top, x-braced, pin bridge feather-weight powerhouse of a guitar. We (and everyone else) learned about these from Roy Book Binder, who's been touring with one the last few years. It's pretty much the equivalent of the spruce/mahogany (we know of one rosewood one) argentine grey, gold sparkle-bound L2,...

~1930 Epiphone Seville Style 4

Extremely rare and early Epiphone, made not long after the company started building guitars; previously they made gorgeous high-end banjos, then started their guitar line with the Recording Models, which morphed into this line of Seville models. The Recording Models ran from A to E, with E being the top; The Sevilles were numbered 0 to 4, making this one the top of the line, though the model came...

1924 Gibson L-5

Lloyd Loar Signed L-5 Master Model A Loar-era Master Model in superb condition that's been back to the factory ages ago. They apparently replaced the neck, retaining the original fingerboard, peghead veneer and tuners, but changing the heel to the later rounded style. At the same time the body was refinished. It has the standard birch back & sides of the period, and is signed by Lloyd Loar. It's...

2012 Schoenberg Larson Cutaway

Our newest creation, built by Robert Anderson of Victoria, B.C. This guitar takes its influence from the guitars of the Larson Brothers, the Chicago builders who rivaled Martin in quality, if not in numbers. The fascination with the Larsons comes from the different way they put their guitars together. Their patent called their method, "built under tension" construction. On our Larson models we...

~1940 Gibson Nick Lucas Special

The penultimate Nick Lucas, serial #96001, very probably ordered and owned by Nick Lucas himself, records show it was picked up at the factory on 9/7/41, along with the adjacent serial #, 96002, the very last Nick Lucas, that had just been repaired for Lucas. Production on the model had officially ended in 1938, with just these two being made three years later. The configuration is very...
