  1. USED 1929 Gibson Mastertone Banjo w/ Robin Smith Neck & Kavanjo head
    $2,850.00

    We have a serious banjo for the serious banjo player. We are offering a 1929 Gibson Mastertone banjo with a great five string neck conversion by Robin Smith. Robin Smith is one of the greatest banjo luthiers of the modern era and did a fantastic job with this one. It is a two piece flange with an archtop tone ring. The resonator is replaced and is signed by Doug Dillard (member of the Williams And Clark Expedition band) and Sammy Shelor (member of the Lonesome River Band). It is set up with a Kavanjo pickup that sounds great. It plays great, sounds great, and looks great. Comes with hard case.

  2. USED Nechville Meteor Rare Brazilian Rosewood Acoustic Electric Banjo
    $2,500.00

      Hey banjo players, are you tired of your electric guitar player
    having all the fun, getting to plug into a dizzying array of cool pedals, and playing at loud volumes without any feedback? Well, have we got the solution for you! Now you will be able to blow him/her off the stage with this fine Nechville Meteor Electric banjo. Made in 2000, it sports a few very cool and rare options: the tunneled 5th string, and Brazilian Rosewood top and fingerboard. The Brazilian Rosewood top is a beautiful piece that is highly valued. The dual pickup electric Meteor was developed in conjunction with Bela Fleck, and the guys from Nechville confirmed this one uses an earlier type of guitar truss rod that is similar to Bela's personal Meteor.
      Both a powerful, active EMG magnetic pickup, and a balanced Piezo pickup are employed and separately controlled on the Meteor. Two separate volume knobs and one overall tone knob (sturdy black metal) are positioned conveniently on the top. The head pickup is a specially made Piezo element that is designed to accurately reproduce its high quality banjo sound. Electronics inside the Meteor process and match both pickups' impedance while balancing their output. A single quarter inch jack carrying a blended signal appears in the side of the instrument below the tailpiece. Feedback is a thing of the past: you can play this through a Marshall stack if you want. It shows some very light cosmetic wear, one small finish crack on the top, but the overall condition is excellent. It sounds great, and will open up new vistas of tone. It's a really cool instrument. Comes with the original case.

  4. Bourgeois Banjo Killer - Bearclaw Sitka/Figured Mahogany #7593

    Regular Price: $6,295.00

    Special Price $5,665.00

    Upgraded with what Dana Bourgeois called "Rare and Ultra Uber Figured Mahogany"

    The Banjo Killer is a slope shouldered dreadnought with a premium bearclaw Sitka spruce top and figured mahogany back and sides. The guitar is modeled after Bryan Sutton’s famous Bourgeois dubbed the “Banjo Killer". The fingerboard and belly bridge are figured ziricote wood. The Tor-tis pickguard is handmade, and the bridge pins are ebony with abalone dots. The tuners are Nickel Waverly with ivoroid buttons. Here's what IBMA "Guitar Player of the Year" Bryan Sutton has to say about the guitar: "From the first time I played the Slope-D Bourgeois that would come to be known as the "Banjo Killer", I was amazed at the range of tone and volume the guitar could produce. The guitar always seems to be to able to handle any dynamic level of play. I can hear the guitar clearly in a loud jam session without feeling like I have to overplay and also enjoy a full and sustained tone when I want to play softly.” Dana Bourgeois has this to say: "The BK Slope D has a deep, broad tone. Through wood selection and voicing, we push it in the direction of a bigger bottom end, a "lush" top end, and greater volume, similar to the characteristics of Bryan's original Banjo Killer. When I first started making slope shouldered dreadnoughts, I went for something as different as possible from the balanced and focused sound of my standard. The Banjo Killer gets me back to that original idea."

  5. Bourgeois Guitars L-DBO Presentation Limited Edition #6 of 10

    Regular Price: $17,195.00

    Special Price $15,475.00

    "Un objeto de gran belleza"  That's a beautiful Spanish phrase isn't it? It means, "An object of great beauty". I can't think of anything that describes this guitar more eloquently and accurately. Where do I begin? This stunning instrument is a work of art that also happens to be an incredible guitar. It has a wonderful tone thanks in part to the Aged Tone Adirondack Top. Of course, the Brazilian Rosewood back and sides doesn't hurt either. This is a presentation model, like the beautiful presentation grade guitars and banjos made by the great instrument makers in the early 1900's. Instruments that were designed to represent the penultimate of the maker's art. The Bourgeois L-DBO-Presentation is that and more. This is as good as it gets, my friends.

  7. Bourgeois Large Soundhole Dreadnought - Adirondack Spruce/Mahogany #7283

    Regular Price: $4,920.00

    Special Price $4,428.00

    The Bourgeois Large Soundhole D incorporates many of the features that bluegrass flatpickers search for in those "Holy Grail" pre-war dreadnoughts. The enlarged soundhole, special rosette, custom pickguard and blank, bound 21-fret fingerboard capture the proper authentic aura for this specialty model. The result is a more of a tribute than a replica, and Bourgeois feels that it makes the perfect bluegrass guitar. Many have remarked that these Large Soundhole Ds are louder and slightly more open than their standard dreadnoughts, while still maintaining their signature balance and clarity. These models have a strikingly "vintage" sound that is sure to thrill many a flatpicker dreaming of owning their own pre-war "bone".

  8. Collings D2H - Sitka Spruce/Rosewood - Adirondack Braces - 1 3/4" Nut #0234

    Regular Price: $4,775.00

    Special Price $4,297.00

    This D2H has been upgraded with Adirondack Spruce braces, and a 1 3/4" nut.

    The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the only company to build them, they bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Although its bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings versions are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers who must compete with inherently louder instruments such as banjos and fiddles.
