  1. Bourgeois Custom OM All Mahogany

    Regular Price: $4,170.00

    Special Price $3,753.00

    "We had this one made up special". You've heard that before, but this time it's actually true. Eric, our beloved leader, ordered this Bourgeois OM all-Mahogany with a few special things. First off, this model usually comes with spruce top, but this was ordered with a mahogany top. These also usually have tortoise color binding, but this has a multi-layered Ivoroid binding and Ivoroid pickguard, with matching Ivoroid tuning keys. The Ivoroid touch is absolutely stunning against the dark, reddish finish. So, an all mahogany OM size guitar. How cool is that? Think of say, a 1946 Gibson L-G2 all mahogany: it is similar as far as tone, but with more balance and clarity. The all-mahogany style is also reminiscent of Martin's 0M-15 style, but done with much nicer aesthetics. It is perfect for finger-style guitar. This guitar is not only beautiful, the sound is unbelievable! It's my favorite acoustic guitar in the shop right now. It's awesome on every level: playabilty, sound, looks, it's got it all. An American Beauty, that's what this guitar is. Comes with hard case. Oh, and you can tell all your friends, "They had this one made up special". You'll be the envy of the neighborhood.

  2. Goodall Grand Concert RGCC - Sitka Spruce - Indian Rosewood #6589

    Regular Price: $7,600.00

    Special Price $6,840.00

    The Grand Concert model is a refined and beautifully proportioned shape, and 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.

  3. USED 2013 Martin D-41 Dreadnought
    $3,200.00

    Greetings my friends. We have a great guitar for you today: A 2013 Martin D-41. In fine, fine, super-fine shape. One of the best sounding modern Martins I've played in a long time. This guitar has tremendous depth, response, and woodiness of tone. It has the lush bass that you'd expect from a fine Martin dreadnought but without the muddiness that I hear in some dreads. This one has great clarity and punch in the lower registers, strong mids, and open and clear trebles. It's a remarkably balanced guitar and inspiring to play.  The headroom is incredible when strummed hard and when played with a light touch, it actually roars. I can feel the back and sides vibrate all over as if the guitar is alive. The fit and finish is above reproach. The neck is straight and true with a great feel. The stings are well intonated. The action is low and easy to fret without any buzz. It stands up against any of the boutique guitars we've got in stock but I guess Martin was the original boutique guitar builder, so that makes sense. It's a fine instrument that will bring many years of enjoyment to you, and maybe your children, who knows? Comes with hard case.

  4. USED Taylor XXXV-GS-W 35th Anniversary Limited Edition
    $4,700.00

    How about that model number? Is that cool or what? All you need to know about this fine guitar is within in this rather cryptic number. A special number for a special guitar. It is a 35th Anniversery, Grand Symphony, with Walnut back & sides. This is a fine, fine, super-fine guitar. The walnut back is absolutely spectacular. We've never seen walnut that looks better then this...it's absolutely jaw dropping. One of a limited edition of only 35 guitars. It has a sharp, Florentine cutaway, the best Gotoh 510 tuners, ebony fingerboard with 35 inlaid at the 12th fret, and a walnut backstrap overlay on the back of the headstock. The edge bevel on the bass side of this guitar's lower bout is gorgeous; inspired in part by the work of renowned luthier Grit Laskin.

    This is what Taylor has to say about it:  "This Taylor guitar showcases walnut wood for the back and sides, offering warm, deep tone, balanced projection, and clarity, in a stunningly complex appearance. The wood set was specially selected for its unique aesthetic qualities, making for an extremely limited run. The Taylor XXXV-GS-W acoustic-electric guitar also features a Sitka spruce top with Taylor's tone-enhancing CV bracing, an abalone rosette, Gotoh tuners, a bone nut and saddle, and the Expression System pickup. The Taylor guitar includes an ebony armrest, ebony binding, and a Florentine cutaway".

  5. Vintage 1967 Martin D-18 Rare Special Order
    $2,500.00

    Who has not seen the Andy Griffin show? If you raised your hand, go watch them all right now, then we'll talk. You back? Excellent. Remember Andy playing a Martin D-18 without a pickguard? Well, here's the story on that: Andy was doing the great movie, "A Face In The Crowd", and they needed a fancy guitar for the movie, so the prop man bought a new D-18 (this was the 50's), painted it black, put rhinestones all over it, and had "Lonesome Rhodes" painted on the front.  After filming, Andy stole the guitar...well, he borrowed it. He took it home, took all the finish off, and re-finished it in natural. He later took the guitar to New York, where John D'Angelico refinished it professionally for him. Andy liked the way it looked without the pickguard, so he kept it that way.  Pretty cool, right? The guitar we have is quite reminiscent of Andy's guitar.  We have a 1967 Martin D-18 that was special ordered without a pickguard. It came from the factory like that. A rare special order. Perhaps the original owner was an Andy fan. It's in very good condition, showing some playing wear. There is a small area on the upper bout where it looks like the guitar was bumped. The neckset is marginal; it's playable as-is, but would benefit greatly from a neckset. The frets are playable, but again, it would benefit from a refret. It is really a great sounding guitar. It has the vintage Martin D-18 tone...one of the most universally applicable and infinitely versatile tones. It is one of the coolest 60's Martin D 18 models I've seen in a long time. Comes with non original hard case.

  6. Vintage 1989 Takamine EF-341SC Acoustic Electric Gloss Black
    $495.00

    The Boss! Who doesn't like the Boss? Bruce Springsteen man, he's the best. Guess what, Bruce played a Takamine just like this in the 80's and 90's. It was the best sounding acoustic/electric going at the time. It was the first choice of many touring pros back then and it still sounds great today. Here we have a Takemine EF-341-SC from 1989. All in all it's in solid condition. It shows some slight playing wear. There are a couple of nicks and dings, one on the back of the neck, one out the upper bout. The frets are in excellent, near perfect condition. The electronics work fine. It sounds great acoustically and plugged in. This would be an awesome gigging guitar. Comes with hard case.

  7. 1976 Martin D-76 Bicentennial Limited Edition Rare Gold Hardware w/possible Elvis Presley connection
    $3,500.00

    How about the Martin guitar company? They may be the ultimate American success story. A company founded by immigrants that has become the iconic American guitar manufacturer success story. Martin did not forget their roots. When our country reached its Bicentennial in 1976, Martin introduced this guitar to honor the country that has given them so much. Very cool in my opinion. The Martin D-76 was a limited run of 1976 guitars. The ebony fingerboard has 13 stars to acknowledge the original 13 states. It has a three piece Indian rosewood back, Bicentennial Eagle on the headstock, and herringbone trim around the soundhole. As a special bonus this guitar was sold with a transferable warranty. How cool is that? The D-76 is the only model that we know of that Martin has offered a transferable warranty. This one is clean and nice. There is some light wear, but overall it looks fine. No cracks or problems. The action is great, and it plays fantastically. It sounds wonderful. The frets are in near-perfect condition...it's ready to go.

    One VERY interesting detail that sets this guitar apart from other D-76's is the gold tuners. It's the only D-76 we've ever seen with gold hardware, and according to the previous owner, the possibility that Elvis Presley special ordered it would explain the tuners. How could Elvis, the King Of Rock And Roll, not get a guitar without gold?

    Here's the guitar's history from the previous owner:

    "I purchased this D-76, new, from Berl Olswanger Music Inc. in Memphis, Tennessee in 1976. Martin honored the American Bicentennial, by creating This Special commemorative model D-76 Dreadnought. There were only 1976 made. What sets this guitar apart from other D-76 guitars is the story that was relayed to me by their salesman, Jim (I can't remember his last name). On the sales receipt he only signed his first name, and in the box "Sold by" he initialed "JEC". Both he and the music store are now deceased, so there is no way to verify this story. However, I had a long standing dealer/customer relationship with Jim and found him to be quite honest, so I have no reason to doubt his story. Allegedly, this guitar was ordered for Elvis in early 1976. It was lost in shipment for almost a year, so they reordered another one for Elvis, and delivered it to him just days before his death, in August of 1977.
    Sometime in 1979 this D-76 was found in the shippers warehouse and delivered to Berl Olswanger Music.
    When I first heard of the D-76 guitars I had tried in vain, to get Jim to order one for me. He indicated that had already ordered one for Elvis, and they were only allotted one D-76 per dealership.
    On one of my later visits to the store, Jim told me this story of how they wound up with an extra D-76, but said he thought he might keep it for himself. In December of 1980, Jim called and asked if I was still interested in adding it to my collection. He said it was still in the store, had not been out of its case more than a couple of times, and had never been registered, so I would be registered as the original owner. Naturally, I said yes.
    However, $1,976.00 was a lot of money in those days, so it took about a year to get it out of Lay-A-Way. The transferable warranty certificate, registered in 1982, shows me as the original owner."

  8. 2006 R. Taylor Style 1 Indian Rosewood/Sitka Spruce w/Laskin Armrest
    $3,400.00

    Bob Taylor has been making fine guitars for many years. When he puts his name on a signature guitar, then you know it's a good one. Taylor is not making the R Taylor Signature line right now, so this is a rare opportunity to own one. Taylor used only his most experienced craftsman on these instruments, with the best woods, in a small shop setting outside of the regular Taylor Guitar prodution. Here we have a 2006 R Taylor Style 1. Spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Ebony fingerboard, and an Ebony contoured arm bevel. The Laskin Armrest is a fantastic option that makes the guitar much more comfortable to play...it was also an additional $1500. The R Taylor guitars have a one-piece neck, without the scarf joint like the regular Taylor production guitars have. It is an amazing sounding guitar, that is perfectly suited for both strumming and fingerpicking. The kerfing is steamed and bent just the way cellos are made. The bridge plate is inlaid into the top, creating better tone and sound transference. It has the Expression system electronics, which sounds great. This guitar is clean and nice. The neck is straight and true. The frets are in perfect condition. There is a ding on the back, but it does not go through to the wood. It has the deluxe R Taylor case. A truly fantastic guitar. It's our acoustic salesman's current favorite guitar in the shop...you better buy it before he does.

  10. Taylor GS Mini-e Bass #7215
    $699.00

    Thanks to breakthrough Taylor design, the GS Mini Bass offers players a remarkably inviting small-scale acoustic bass that’s compact, lightweight and ultra-comfortable on the hands. Adding to the popular heritage of our GS Mini family, this four-string bass sibling is even more impressive for its ability to create natural-sounding bass notes despite a condensed 23-1/2-inch scale length — about 10 inches shorter than the scale length of a standard bass guitar. Part of the magic is the custom nylon-core strings (with phosphor bronze wrap wire) developed with our friends at D’Addario exclusively for the bass (in fact, no other strings will work on it). Together with our patented dual-prong bridge pin design, the bass not only sounds great but also yields a slinky feel. And with the condensed fret spacing, playing bass is now physically easier on anyone’s hands, from kids to bass newbies to seasoned bass players craving a couch-friendly option. It’s an inspiring tool to have on hand for writing, recording demos, and jamming with friends. The bass comes equipped with our ES-B onboard electronics, along with a hard bag featuring adjustable backpack straps for easy portability.

  11. Taylor 314ce LTD - Lutz Spruce/Tasmanian Blackwood #7071
    $1,999.00

    Tasmanian blackwood continues to grow in popularity as more players discover its musical strengths: strong projection, a warm and focused midrange, and top-end sparkle. Normally we pair blackwood back and sides with a mahogany top within our 300 Series, but for this limited edition cutaway Grand Auditorium, we've swapped mahogany for Lutz spruce, whose properties lend a dynamic boost to the overall acoustic output. Together, the woods find a musical sweet spot in the middle of the tonal spectrum, which gives the guitar an especially lively and engaging personality. Featured appointments include faux tortoise shell for the binding, rosette and pickguard, the return of our “Twisted Ovals” fretboard inlay scheme, and vibrant abalone-dotted bridge pins that add a pop of color against the ebony bridge. The guitar comes equipped with our clear-sounding ES2 acoustic electronics and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
