  3. USED 2012 Martin HD-28V Vintage Series
    $2,400.00

    We recently got a private collection of great Martin guitars. This is one of my favorites: a 2012 Martin HD-28V Vintage series. Made to the specs of a pre war Martin D-28 with scalloped bracing, Herrinbone trim, and "Butterbean" style tuners. It is a good one. Very clean and nice. This guitar sounds absolutely amazing. I've played a lot of these, and this is one of the best. It has Indian Rosewood back and sides, and is very resonant. The frets are fine, neckset is perfect, it's ready to go. Comes with original hard case.

    Martin HD28V Vintage Acoustic Guitar Features
    A Vintage Herringbone D-2 Format with Popular Pre-War Martin Features
    Solid Sitka Spruce Top with Standard X Scalloped, Forward Shifted Bracing
    Solid East Indian Rosewood Back and Sides with HD Zig-Zag Purfling
    Modified V Shaped Select Hardwood Neck

  4. PAUL REED SMITH SILVER SKY JOHN MAYER SIGNATURE - FROST #9115
    $2,299.00

      "It's been a dream of mine for years to design a guitar that includes some of my favorite vintage specifications but with a modern spirit and aesthetic. After two years of study and refinement, the Silver Sky is my vision of what a reboot of the electric guitar should look and feel like." – John Mayer
      The PRS Silver Sky is the result of a close collaboration between Grammy Award-winning musician John Mayer and Paul Reed Smith. More than two and half years in the making, the Silver Sky is a vintage-inspired instrument that is at once familiar but also newly PRS through and through. This model was based off of Mayer and Smith’s favorite elements from 1963 and 1964 vintage instruments, resulting in an idealized version of a vintage single-coil guitar. The attention that was paid to every detail sets this guitar apart.
      Some of the more distinctive specifications include, the headstock shape, tuners, neck and fretboard, bridge, and pickups and electronics. The headstock shape is based on PRS’s trademark design, but inverted to both accommodate Mayer’s playing style and also to keep a consistent length of string behind the nut, which makes staying in tune easier. The tuners are a traditional vintage-style, closed-back tuner, but with PRS’s locking design. The neck shape was modeled after 1963/1964 vintage instruments, and the fretboard has a 7.25” radius. The moment your hand grabs this neck, it just feels right. Like the tuners, the steel tremolo takes a classic design and incorporates PRS’s trem arm and Gen III knife-edge screws. The bridge on the Silver Sky is setup flush to the body in the neutral position so that the tremolo bridge only goes down in pitch. By keeping the bridge in contact with the body, the guitar itself is acoustically louder, which improves the signal to noise ratio of the single-coil pickups. The 635JM single-coil pickups are very round and full, with a musical high end that is never “ice-picky” or brash.
      Other high-quality specifications include a bone nut, a molded metal jack plate that is curved and makes plugging and unplugging a guitar cable hassle-free, retooled knobs, fretwire that is slightly smaller than what you’d find on most PRS electric guitars, and PRS’s double action truss rod (accessible from the front of the headstock for ease of use).

  5. Paul Reed Smith McCarty 594 Copperhead 10 Top #6456
    $4,300.00

    Yosaw, Yowsa, Yowsa, we've got a good one for you! Don't you love that phrase, "Yowsa, Yowsa, Yowsa?" It was popularized by the great jazz violinist, Ben Bernie in the 1930's. You'll say Yowsa when you see this guitar, it is stunning. We have a new, PRS McCarty 594 with 10 top in Copperhead finish, normally a finish only available on an Artist Package model. The 10 top is one of the best we've seen, with a figured mahogany body. The neck is a pattern vintage that feels great. It is a fine sounding, and fine playing instrument. The McCarty 594 is a vintage-inspired instrument that is at once incredibly familiar and effortlessly playable. Whether you are looking for rich, authentic, vintage humbucking tones or nuanced, sweet singlecoil sounds, the McCarty 594 can seamlessly master both sonic territories thanks to the 58/15 LT pickups and push/pull coil taps on the tone controls. The electronics layout, a few key specifications, and PRS craftsmanship combine in the McCarty 594 to create an instrument that plays in tune, is intonated the entire length of the neck, and feels like a guitar that you’ve been playing forever.

  10. USED Vintage 1968 Hofner 489 Western Acoustic
    $750.00

    Hofner made some cool guitars back in the day. They still do, but I like the vibe of the old ones. This guitar is quite similar to one Brian Jones used in the studio with the Stones. We have a 1968 Hofner 489 Western Model. It is a slope shoulder dreadnought. Looks like a Gibson J-50. It has maple back and sides, a spruce top, adjustable bridge saddle, and micro tilt to adjust the neck angle. It is clean, very clean. It has some lacquer checking, but the only real playing wear is on the top near the lower part on the soundhole. The neck is straight, the frets are fine, the action is good, and it sounds great. It's really a cool guitar. The maple is nice and flamey. It's a cool part of 60's history. Comes with original gig bag.

  12. USED 2002 Collings D-2H Indian Rosewood/Sitka Spruce
    $2,895.00

    You know vintage guys can be kind of snobby about guitars. I'm guilty of that. I used to say things like, "I won't play anything made after 1965". Kind of silly really, but that's how it was. Collings changed that for me. I was forced to admit their guitars stood up against old Martin and prewar Gibsons, and in some ways even exceeded them. Here we have a 2002 Collings D-2H. This is a Martin D-28 style with Indian Rosewood back and sides, Herringbone trim, Grover tuners and Sitka spruce top. It shows light wear, nothing major at all. This guitar was played but well taken care of. The frets are in near perfect condition. The action is great with plenty of room on the saddle to come down. An LR Baggs Anthem pickup has been installed (a $300 upgrade). It is loud and toneful. A guitar for a lifetime. Comes with original hard case.
