1959 Gibson Melody Maker 3/4 Size

This 3/4 size '59 Melody Maker we just took in on consignment is such a cool little guitar! We've been having a blast taking it for a spin through our trusty Victoria Vicky Verb - a killer combo, btw. Need a second guitar that lives in a funky altered tuning? Travel guitar? Kids want to learn how to play? One setup for slide guitar? It's currently set up beautifully and plays great, but you...

Campellone Standard 16"

There's likely no better value in an American-made, solid-wood archtop than a Mark Campellone Standard. This 16” guitar in a beautiful dark cherry sunburst finish features a hand-carved spruce top, beautiful figured maple back & sides, Venetian cutaway and floating pickup. It's got a great, throaty archtop wallop when played acoustically, and zings to life with power and complexity of tone when...

2014 Nik Huber Dolphin II

Like new 2014 Huber Dolphin II Bolt-Neck just in! Like all great builders, Nik manages to straddle the line between a precision build and a soulful guitar brilliantly. There is a warmth and, forgive the term, organic quality to these guitars. The setup and playability are off the charts great - this satin finished neck is simply incredible. Luxurious is the term that came to mind when getting...

2017 Frank Brothers Signature

Our initial impression of the first Signature models we took delivery of last Fall was that it was masterfully made - flawless if we're honest - with tones and playability to match. We can say, without reservation, that impression remains. These are simply stunning guitars in every regard. The moment you pick up these guitars, you know you're in for something special - the quality is that...

2013 Rick Turner Model 1

Made famous by legendary Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, the Model 1 is the epitome of versatility. There are a staggering amount of tones in this beautifully designed guitar - all of them highly useable. With it's combination of piezo and adjustable magnetic pickup, you can cover some very convincing amplified acoustic tones all the way through to screaming lead tones (we had this...

2004 Koll Duo Glide

The early 2000's were a special period for Koll Guitars, as Saul was devoting himself full-time to making instruments and experimenting with materials and process. Some very special guitars came out of this era, and this is definitely one of them. This guitar has been played over the years and shows some basic play wear. The pickup covers show scratching and finish wear, and there are various...

2017 Koll Super Glide Almighty Silver Sparkle

We're thrilled to have this killer 2017 back in the shop! This guitar originated from our store and returned for, what else, a trade towards another Koll! We asked Saul to build TME a Silver Sparkle Super Glide Almighty after seeing pictures of his personal Silver Sparkle SGA. It immediately called to mind images of the old Silver Sparkle Grestch Duo Jets we'd drooled over as kids. We were...

1959 Fender Jazzmaster

"Why don't you guys have any Jazzmaster style guitars? I see Strats, Teles, Les Pauls....What gives?" We have been aware of the lack of Jazzmaster style guitars in the shop, we promise, but the wait is over - and we aren't messing around... Here 'tis folks - about as clean of a 1959 Fender Jazzmaster as you could ever hope to find! All original*, no excuses, excellent condition all around -...

2012 Collings OM1A Varnish

Just in on trade! This beautiful-looking Collings OM1A Varnish has the big, wide open sound that would delight any player looking for that endlessly versatile OM. The characteristic Collings punch and articulation is really amped up by the soft varnish finish, which seems to let the entire guitar "breathe" a bit more. It's been played, and remains in very good condition, though it does carry one...

1935 Gibson L-10

Great sounding 1935 Gibson L-10, which would be a dynamite instrument for a player who doesn't need a mint condition guitar. Carved Spruce top, Maple body & mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard and bridge. A minor center seam crack repaired at TME and a hairline crack in the back of the headstock are its only issues. The playability and tone are first rate. It's worth noting that this is a...

1975 Fender Telecaster

This is a fantastic playing, sounding, and looking mid-70's Tele. The setup is spot on and feels great with low action and no fret wear. This Tele does that wonderful "kraaaang" we all love when playing through an edge-of-breakup Fender amp with the bridge pickup on and picking back by the saddles very well. You're in Junior Brown territory in no time! Or, like all great Teles, you can easily...

1940 Stromberg G-1

Very clean & strong-sounding 1940 Stromberg G-1 just into the shop for consignment. The modestly appointed G-1 was a lower-rung guitar in Stromberg's lineup, but its sound and playability leave nothing to be desired. This guitar has been professionally refinished (not sure who did the work), refretted by Gruhn in Nashville, replacement Waverly tuners and an added strap button added. The...

The influences manifested in the Totemguitar line, to date close to 400 instruments, go back to Dada, Surrealism, collage and assemblage art, Pop art, and...
