  1. Taylor Academy 10e Dreadnought #7282

    Regular Price: $798.00

    Special Price $599.00

    This Dreadnought distills the essential features of a great acoustic guitar into a budget-friendly form. Taylor's Academy Series was designed with developing players in mind, so the goal was to create as comfortable a playing experience as possible. The guitar body pairs layered sapele back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top, and incorporates a feature normally reserved for their premium instruments: a built-in armrest that softens the edge of the body’s bass-side lower bout to enhance the playing comfort. The patented Taylor neck features a slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length, 1-11/16-inch nut width, and light gauge strings, which make fretting and bending strings easier. Tonally the Dreadnought’s body dimensions produce a bold response with a warm low end and punchy treble, making this a great option for strummers and flatpickers. Onboard ES-B electronics include a built-in digital chromatic tuner with an LED display for tuning and low battery indication. Whether you’re at the front end of you guitar journey or just looking for a great strumming guitar without breaking the bank, the A10e will serve you well.

  5. Taylor 416ce Baritone - Sitka Spruce/Ovangkol #2081

    Regular Price: $2,798.00

    Special Price $1,876.00

    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.

  7. 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."

  10. Waterloo WL-JK Jumbo King - Spruce/Indian Rosewood #1506
    $2,115.00

    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.

  11. *Reduced Price* Vintage 1950's Gibson Radio Tone Dobro 7 String SUPER RARE!

    Regular Price: $7,500.00

    Special Price $6,500.00

    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.

  12. 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.
