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.

~1938 Gibson Custom Special Flattop

* Fourteen-Fret Rosewood L-00 * Neck is an L-12 Archtop Neck * Fully Original The finest example of an extremely rare model, this one is with a rosewood L-00 body and a 14 fret L-12 (Jazz guitar) neck. With just four of these L-00/L-12s known to exist, these are a true mystery to the muddy Gibson history, from 1938 with original details that became standard many years later in a guitar that is...

1960 Gibson ES-345

A well-played, problem-free example of one of Gibson?s premier electrics. Made in the first quarter of 1960, it is equipped with long magnet PAFs and a round, medium sized neck profile, rather than the shallow flat neck profile that Gibson would adopt later in the year. Its Varitone circuit is intact, and while its PAFs covers have been off, the pickups are not rewound and sound fantastic. The...

1934 Martin 000-45

•Long Scale, Fourteen Fret •TJ Thompson Restoration We all know that OMs were built from 1929 through 1933, and at the beginning of '34 the name was changed to 000. However, the specs didn't actually change for a number of months, when the scale was shortened by a half inch to lessen the tension from the heavy strings of the day. Thus these earlier '34 000s are actually OMs in everything but...

1939 Martin 000-28

Fabulous, All Original Condition Every once in a while a vintage guitar shows up of exceptional quality and beauty. It's instruments like this that add a very special pizzazz to this very unpleasant job of ours (yuk yuk). This 000-28 is a real beauty: it shows some light pick wear on the top when you look closely, and a couple of tiny case bites, but otherwise is gorgeous. The finish on the...

1926 Martin 000-18

The early 12-fret 000s occupy a special status in the world of tone. Being a giant box for the extra-light construction of those days, it puts out an extraordinarily full and rich tone. This one is original except for a period replacement of one side tuner and correct footprint bridgeplate, has one long side crack and a couple minor back cracks, all beautifully repaired with french polish...

~1935 Gibson Roy Smeck Stage Deluxe

This one has been converted from Hawaiian, keeping the neck its original width of two inches. It could be narrowed - that part of the conversion has been for the next owner.

New frets, great action, and a big, rubust tone that you can only get from thiis model.

1945 Martin 000-21

All original, excellent condition except for one crunch in the top at the edge of lower bout, treble side. The Brazilian rosewood is quartersawn and beautiful, there's much finish crazing, the tone is strong, punchy and full. 1945 is a very interesting year for Martin, just after they stopped scalloping the braces, and replaced them with very light "tapered" braces, which got heavier each year...

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...
