  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. PAUL REED SMITH SILVER SKY JOHN MAYER SIGNATURE - TUNGSTEN #2372
    $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).

  4. Tausch 665 Deluxe - Amber Burst #1801
    $4,800.00

    The Tausch 665 Deluxe in Amber Burst is a set-neck, semi-solid Telecaster style body with hand-picked, meticulously chosen woods. Tausch guitars give new meaning to hand-made. He makes about two guitars a month. The attention to detail is extraordinary. He uses Harry Haussel pickups that sound amazing. It has a strat style tremelo with a Pau Ferro wooden block instead of the metal traditionally used. The resonance is unreal. The semi-acoustic body made of Pearwood gives the 665 a truely unbelievabe loud and "alive" acoustic response. Sound just explodes from this thing. The flamed maple neck is "set in", with a neck joint that enables comfortable access up to the highest registers. The sunburst finish is similar to the one use by Gibson on Les Paul models in the late 50's. It is lightweight, and an absolute joy to play. It is one of our absolute favorite new guitars: an inspiring instrument, that will make you happy for a lifetime.

  5. Goodall RGCC Grand Concert Cutaway - AAA Sitka/Indian Rosewood #6717

    Regular Price: $7,400.00

    Special Price $6,659.00

      The Goodall Grand Concert might be one of the world's most perfect guitars. With its refined and beautifully proportioned shape, it is everything you could desire from an acoustic guitar and more. It's tone is a wonderful blend of balanced clarity, and punchy projection, with a smooth rich bass response. This instrument is larger than the Parlor but smaller than the Concert Jumbo. It has a singing lyrical treble, with excellent sustain, and is comfortable to hold. Though it is a small guitar, the Grand Concert does not exhibit the tight nasal tonal quality in the midrange and bass that is generally associated with smaller guitars.
      While the Grand Concert series is considered ideal for the fingerstylist due to its sensitive, dynamic responsiveness, it is equally appropriate for the flatpicker or plectrum player with the appropriate tonewood combination. It is prized by Bluegrass flatpickers and has even been said to surpass large bodied dreadnought guitars with respect to it's clarity, sustain and powerful projection.

  6. 2012 Martin Custom Shop D-28 Quilted Bubinga, Amber Sunburst
    $4,500.00

    Straight out of a collection, we have this fine Martin Custom Shop guitar. It's rare and gorgeous. Martin's Custom Shop creates some of the world's best acoustic guitars, and this pre-owned custom Dreadnought is no exception! Never one to rest on their laurels, Martin constructed this guitar using an amazing set of Quilted Bubinga wood for the back and sides, providing a gorgeous look as well as a full-bodied tone that simply has to be heard to be believed. Full, blooming chords and clear, crisp single-note lines ring out perfectly thanks to the forward-shifted scalloped "X" bracing, making this Dreadnought an excellent choice for recording and playing out. Of course, the looks are nothing to scoff at, with a Amber Sunburst finish on the Adirondack Spruce top that wonderfully complements the Bubinga back and sides. In excellent condition. The frets show virtually no wear. The neck is straight and true. The action is great and a joy to play. This is a serious guitar for a serious player. It is one of the finest Martin guitars we have had in the shop. Comes with the Custom Shop Martin hardshell case. This guitar had a retail price of $8249

  7. USED 1942 Gibson L-30 Sunburst
    $1,295.00

    1942, what a year! The nation was struggling to get on a war economy. Virtually no manufacturers were doing business as usual. Everything was geared toward the war effort. Gibson guitars was no exception: they made gliders, while guitar production was severely limited. Dealers were allowed very few guitars. Some months, no guitars were shipped. We have a beautiful 1942 Gibson L-30. These small archtop guitars were a staple item for Gibson since the early thirties. This is an original, clean guitar and even has the original soft case. The finish is beautiful, the frets are fine, the action is good. It is a collectors grade instrument. Some wear, but overall excellent condition. These are great guitars for blues, but really they are great for any type of music. This is a one-owner instrument and has been well taken care of.

  9. 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.

  10. HOLD - 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.

  11. USED 2015 Martin 00-28VS Lefty
    $2,500.00

    "A fingerpicker's dream." You know, that's sort of misleading. I have no idea what fingerpickers dream about. Maybe they don't dream about guitars at all, who knows? Well, if I was left handed and owned this guitar, it would be a dream come true. We are offering a lefty 2015 Martin 00-28VS. Indian Rosewood back and sides, Sitka Spruce top, scalloped bracing, V neck, slot head, ebony fingerboard, 12 fret, 24.9" scale, 1 7/8" at the nut. It's super clean. The only blemishes worth mentioning is a little bit of button wear on the back and a small ding on the top near the edge of the lower bout on the treble side. The neck is straight and true. Action is nice and comfortable. It plays great, and sounds wonderful. Buzzy, our resident fingerpicker here at the shop, was playing some beautiful music on the this guitar and gives it two thumbs up. It's a great one. You'll love it. Comes with original hard case.
