  1. 1999 Larrivee NAMM Show Presentation D-10KK All Koa Model
    $5,995.00

    Twenty years ago Jean Larrivee found a log of Koa that he said yielded the finest, most highly figured Koa he had ever seen and would likely ever find again. Jean may be right, in the all the years we've been in business we've never seen any other Koa that comes close to the depth of figure and color that log produced. Larrivee made a batch of Koa guitars from that log for the 2000 NAMM show. Built at the end of 1999, this D10KK was one of the guitars shown at the 2000 NAMM Show. It is drop dead gorgeous. It's so figured that you'd think it was a 5A grade flamed maple stained to look like Koa because Koa just never looks like this. We bought this guitar and a handful of other Koa Larrivee guitars from that show. It was purchased from a local collector, and from the looks of it, it was hardly played. It's in near mint (9.5) condition. Aside from its amazing looks it also has amazing tone and sustain! The longer you let it sustain, the more overtones you hear, producing an incredible pallet of colors. This is a loud guitar with a BIG voice! Strum an open chord and you'll feel the neck resonate in the palm of your hand and the body of the guitar will rattle your upper torso. The sound just wants to jump across the room. Deep warm lows, sparkly highs. Punchy mid range. It's one of, if not the best sounding Koa guitar we've heard.

    This is a rare instrument, and a great one. The Presentation idea goes back to the late 1800's when banjo and guitar manufacturers would make the best instruments they could to be displayed at World's Fairs, and other venues, to show the public the quality of their work. This is Larrivee is their finest.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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".

  5. 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.
