1975 Martin D-18

$2,999
We love shade top Martins. Who doesn’t? And what we have here is a mid-seventies Martin D-18 shade top that is everything it should be and more. It’s a great sounding dread with a bit richer tone than most 70s Martins we’ve seen. Not a banjo killer, but plenty loud if you want it to be. It sounds really wonderful and would make a great professional stage guitar, armed as it is with a K&K pickup...

Crazy cool and great playing 1973 Fender Telecaster Deluxe in the highly coveted black finish. Fairly light for a 70’s Fender weighing in at 7 pounds 11 ounces. Plays smooth in all positions.

1966 Gretsch 6119 Chet Atkins Tennessean

Call
Based on looks alone this ranks among the coolest guitars in the shop, and fortunately, it plays and sounds just as good as it looks. Unlike earlier 6119s which had the traditional big box body, true f-holes, and a single FilterTron, this 1966 Tennessean has a slimmed down body, painted f-holes, and a pair of HiLo-Tron pickups. Although the f-holes are painted, the body is fully hollow and it has...

Be still my beating heart. A rare 1928 National Style 2 tricone resonator with a beautifully engraved flowering vine design adorning the top, back, sides, and even the back of the brass-clad square neck. This is hands down one of the most beautiful guitars we’ve had in the shop. There’s something about these vintage National resonators that just can’t be replicated in modern guitars. Appears...

1972 Gibson Les Paul Custom

$3,499
Where were you in 1972? This sweet 1972 Les Paul Custom in Cherryburst finish was just being born. After 46 years in the music business it’s seen some stages, probably a few bars, and made a lot of great music. And it’s just getting started.

1967 Harmony H73 Roy Smeck Signature Model

1968 Gibson ES-330

$4,599
Oh Yeah! A gorgeous ES-330 in one of our all time favorite colors, Sparkling Burgundy. There is something special about the way a Sparkling Burgundy finish ages over time. This one has held onto much of its original vibrancy but has a beautiful undercurrent of gold sheen and some finish checking on the top. Original tuners have been replaced with vintage Klusons. It also has an added brass...

1951 Gretsch New Yorker Archtop

$999
Yes! These old 50s archtops are lovely guitars but often have playability and cosmetic issues. Not this one.

1974 Fender Bronco

$1,099
Ride ’em cowboy! The Fender Bronco was produced by the Fender company from 1967 until 1981, so this one sits squarely in the middle of the production history. Broncos had bodies and necks like the Fender Mustang but with a different tremolo system and only one pickup. Unlike other student guitars which typically had very short scale lengths, the Bronco has a comfortable scale length of 24 inches...

1978 Martin D-18

$2,499
Here’s a very special guitar. 70s Martins are proving worthy of the Martin tradition and are increasingly sought after by knowledgable players. Does a 70s D-18 have the dry punchy tone of a pre-War model? No. They have their own sound—plenty loud, but richer and arguably more resonant across the full tonal spectrum than the earlier models favored by Bluegrassers. This one is certainly one of...

1975 Fender Precision Bass

$2,499
A 1975 Fender Precision Bass in classic olympic white with a maple fingerboard and black pickguard. This vintage bass plays well, sounds great, and at 8 pounds 12 ounces, it's a bit lighter than many of its mid-70s brethren. The white finish has yellowed to creamy golden tones that only time and human handling can produce. The maple fingerboard has been refretted. There is a chip on the...

1960 Rikhi Ram Sitar

$2,999
"Turn off your mind relax and float down stream,"....so say the Beatles in Tomorrow Never Knows, the last track of the groundbreaking Revolver album. 50 years ago George Harrison changed popular Western music forever with his sitar playing and blissed out message.

1964 National Reso-Phonic

$1,199
Oh yeah! Rare Pink Pearloid finish makes this 1964 National Reso-Phonic a real eye catcher. Round neck but the action is a bit high and so best for slide playing. 3/4 size with 24 inch scale. Sounds great. All totally original mid-sixties Reso-Phonic! DETAILS Year: 1964. Make: National. Model: Reso-Phonic Serial: G355593. Finish: Pink Pearloid. Case: Gig bag. Weight: 6...

1940 Electromuse Lap Steel

$499
Electromuse made steel guitars in the 1940s through 1950s. The date of this cool little guitar is uncertain, but likely in the 1940s, we believe. Electromuse patented the Eye-Beam pickup which was one of the first practical electromagnetic pickups on the market. This six-stringed student model guitar comes equipped with an Eye-Beam pickup made in Chicago, USA. Volume and tone controls....
