  1. USED 1950's Martin Style 1 T1 Tenor Ukulele
    $1,250.00

    It's hard not to love Hawaiian music. Sol Hoopi was the absolute king of the lap steel, and played a pretty mean uke as well. The ukulele is such a vital component of great Hawaiian music. They were serious instruments for serious players. Here we have a 1950's Martin T1 Tenor Ukulele. No serial number. It is all mahogany with tortoise-celluloid binding. 1:1 friction pegs. C.F. Martin logo on the headstock. The neck measures 1-5/16" at the nut and has a 17" scale. In excellent condition, showing only minor cosmetic wear. It sounds great, as only a vintage Martin uke can. It is very collectible, and very cool. The Brazilian fingerboard and bridge are highly figured. No repairs and no issues. It is all original and ready to go. It comes with the original soft case, with an original Martin string price list, and some original Martin strings.

  2. USED Martin 000-18 JBS - Jimmy Buffett 63-of-168
    $3,000.00

    -Back in January 2003 at the Winter NAMM show Martin announced a new limited edition, co-designed by Jimmy Buffett, having an all mahogany body and neck. This would be an Auditorium – being a 000 body whose neck meets the body at 12th fret. It was built with scalloped hybrid bracing, and cosmetic features included tortoise color celluloid body binding and end-graft. It has alternating crème and black "rope style" purfling around top, blue Paua shell soundhole rosette ring, with narrow black/white/black purfling.  It has a rectangular ebony bridge, tortoise shell color teardrop pickguard, black/white purfling around the sides & back. We greatly appreciate the comfortable neck width of 1 13/16th" and we presume that Mr. Buffet does as well. This has a low profile neck, ebony fretboard, a 25.4" "long" scale. The black ebony board is inlaid with 4 small dotmarker inlays, and sports a ship's wheel at the 5th fret. Mr. Buffett's facsimile signature is inlaid at the 20th (or last) fret. We love this part – on the polished black ebony headplate there is an inlaid shiny golden porthole through which one can view a breezy palm tree on an island, in a turquoise blue sea. Said porthole has 8 black holes around its perimeter which must have symbolic meaning of some kind. The nut and saddle are carved from bone. The string spacing at the bridge, with its compensated saddle, is 2 5/16". It features gold butterbean open-gear; it is housed in a special light brown Geib style case, which shows just a few white scuffs on its surface. While there is no headstock logo, the “C F Martin & Co., Nazareth, PA” stamp appears on back of headstock. The interior label is sequentially numbered with total (total of 168 were built – this one is Individual No. 68) and said label was signed by Mr. Buffett and C.F. Martin IV.

    Martin offered up this gorgeous and very limited Jimmy Buffet Polywog guitar in 2003. It has a fantastic feel, and is as legendary as the artist who inspired it. This guitar is a master crafted guitar, and sounds incredible. Gigantic rich and vibrant tones pour forth with each strum. Very well taken care of. It was owned by a collector who kept it in the case safe and sound. Just maybe some micro swirling. Near MINT! No breaks, cracks, or repairs. See pics. All original. Original Martin deluxe hard Case. Fantastic Tone and plays great!

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

    Who has not seen the Andy Griffith 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.

It was his daily player until he passed away, and has sat in a closet for the last couple of years. It has aged and opened up with a sound that only a guitar that's been played for 78 years could.
