The Taylor 416ce Baritone takes advantage of ovangkol’s full midrange and bright top end. Though slightly less dense than most rosewoods, ovangkol shares much of rosewood’s clarity and fidelity. This pairs well with Taylor's baritone design, producing a deep voice with rosewood-like richness and clear note definition. The baritone’s lower B tuning, coupled with a 27-inch scale length, make it possible to generate tonal depth with normal string tension, giving players a familiar playing experience. It’s a great choice if you have a lower vocal range or favor a de-tuned guitar sound.Learn More

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."Learn More

Featuring Waterloo's East Indian Rosewood back/side option, vintage-inspired x-bracing, and a prominent v-shaped neck with fully adjustable truss rod.
Full-bodied in both tone and stature, the aptly nicknamed "Jumbo King" is the largest size offering in the Waterloo line and a modern day tribute to jumbo-sized guitars of the early 1940s. Originally manufactured by Regal for the mail-order enterprise Montgomery Ward, this slope-shoulder body size was designed to provide performers of the era with enough volume and power for professional radio work. The WL-JK accomplishes this and more by employing a full five-inch body depth and a slightly narrow waist to enhance both the bass and treble response.Learn More
I've been aware of this instrument since 1983 when I read an article in Guitar Player magazine by George Gruhn about a 7 string Dobro made by Gibson. I was quite intrigued, as I played Dobro a bit as well. It was a marvel to behold. Now for a little history: CMI was a conglomerate that from 1944 until the mid fifties, owned Gibson and the National Guitar Company. There was a bit of an incestuous relationship between the two companies. It was not uncommon for National to use Gibson bodies, and then use their own necks, hardware, etc. I've seen Gibson J-45 bodies and ES-175 bodies with National parts. The point of this is that there was some intermingling of the two companies. After WWII, National stopped making resonator instruments. However, there was still a demand from traditional Dobro players. Even back then they were searching the pawn shops for used instruments. That brings us back to our Gibson Dobro. It exists, and we have it in our shop. It was possibly a prototype made by Gibson with a vintage National/Dobro resonator. National had a stash of those, and used them in the sixties on some models. So, this guitar was either made as a special order, or as an experimental model. I tend to think it was made for a customer because most prototypes I've seen are somewhat crude - this is not. It is a finished instrument. It is seven strings with four resonator screens. The body is a Gibson Southern Jumbo guitar body. It's bigger than any traditional style Dobro that I've seen. Bigger body, bigger sound; that's how it works. So as just a musical instrument, it's the best sounding Dobro I've ever heard. It's the only one my friends. There is a rumor that two more were made, but it is unsubstantiated. This is about the rarest Gibson on the planet and that is including the elusive, never seen "MODERNE". I've never seen a Moderne in person, but I can look at this guitar anytime I want to. It's clean and nice, showing some light wear, but overall condition is excellent. It's really something. A piece of history - and it can be yours! Comes with vintage hard case.Learn More
Have you ever spent time with a wonderful McPherson Guitar? If not, this is your chance, and we promise you will not be disappointed! Here's a model 3.0 XP, featuring some spectacular woods and incredible build quality. Mint condition. No scratches, dents, dings, modifications, or repairs. The frets look perfect and unplayed. Not only is this an incredible sounding instrument, but it also plays great, looks gorgeous, and has a feel that you simply have to experience. Born 12-13-2012. It features highly figured sapelle back and sides: sonically a lot like mahogany. By the way, "highly figured" is an understatement! You can get lost in the 3-D look of this wood. Waterfalls! And the top is a beautiful example of the "holy grail" of top woods: Adirondack Spruce. A lot of headroom. The harder you play, the louder it can get. The body tapers to 3.0 inch depth at the lower bout. This probably helps to explain the obvious presence and richness of the bass without it being overwhelming. The action up and down the neck is perfect: low and comfortable without any buzz. BIG tone here. Punchy and powerful, yet totally balanced over the entire neck, with fantastic sustain. The L.R. Baggs pickup and the soundhole-mounted volume control just top off this instrument and its appointments. Can you tell that I am crazy about this guitar?

This limited edition walnut/cedar Grand Symphony boasts a big, warm, responsive voice. Walnut blends the dry tonal character of mahogany with maple’s player-reflective attributes. Combined with the touch sensitivity and warmth of a cedar top, players can expect a quick response with a huge range of tonal colors. Fingerstylists, players who use Celtic tunings, and anyone craving a big response from a light touch will love this guitar. Strummers will find that the guitar responds best with a slightly softer attack yet still produces plenty of sonic power and dynamic range thanks to the bigger GS body and Taylor’s Performance bracing. Visually, the walnut back blends color variegation, bold grain structure, and bookmatched figure, while a figured maple mini wedge adds visual contrast. Maple is also featured for the neck, binding and rosette. The fretboard inlay is a laser-engraved Italian acrylic Victorian design. Additional features include a Venetian cutaway and our onboard Expression System 2 electronics.Learn More
