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.

1944 Martin 00-18

$6,890
This guitar spent its entire life on the Big Island. The original owner was a serviceman (we got it from his daughter) who bought the guitar new, and couldn't afford a case (we got a nice arched top hard case for it) so the guitar has the warm patina born of lots of sunlight exposure and daily wear and tear. One plus of spending its life in the tropics is that there are no dryness cracks on this...

1945 Martin 00-18

$7,249
A particularly nice example, with adirondack top and tapered braces. There are a couple of unusual details: the nut is 1/32" narrower, the spacing at the bridge is at least 1/32" wider than standard, and there's a metal rod in the neck instead of ebony. It's in great, completely original condition,just a hairline crack in the side that's been glued but not cleated, and a couple areas of scratches...

1946 Martin 00-18

$7,595
A gorgeous, fantastic original condition guitar from early in the year. It is more like a 1945 Martin, with Adirondack spruce, ebony truss rod and feather-weight (3 lbs, 3 oz.). It's interesting that it's a four-piece top which makes sense considering that Martin switched to Sitka immediately after. Obviousy they were using up their smaller pieces od Adirondack on the smaller 18 style models....

1945 Martin D-28

$38,490
Condition isn't everything; these are tools, deliverers of music. But every once in a while, a guitar like this shows up and its thrilling to partake of its beauty. It's been played, but babied. There is one mishap: a finish ding on the side by the endpin, about 1" x 1 3/4", with no damage to the wood. Otherwise, there's minor pick scratches on the top, no cracks, apparently all original parts...

1911 Martin 00-42

$19,495
A Pure Gem from a Bygone Era Rare 00 Size Abalone bound w/Ivory Bridge Sixteenth Martin in 1911 This guitar could easily be mistaken for a 15 year old recreation from Martin. It is not, however, and while the appearance does not belie this, the materials used in construction definitely do. Brazilian rosewood back and sides, ivory bridge, ivory bindings on body and fingerboard, 2-piece...

1982 Gilchrist F-5

$21,500
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

$4,850
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...

1911 Gibson F-4 3-Point

$4,750
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

$15,650
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.

1936 Martin 000-18

$11,850
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

$29,950
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

$5,675
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...

Lloyd Loar Signed L-5 Master Model A Loar-era Master Model in superb condition that's been back to the factory ages ago.

It has the standard birch back & sides of the period, and is signed by Lloyd Loar. It's...

2012 Schoenberg Larson Cutaway

$6,985
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 focus on this style of...
