  1. 2012 Martin Custom Shop D-28 Quilted Bubinga, Amber Sunburst

    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

Made to the specs of a pre war Martin D-28 with scalloped bracing, Herrinbone trim, and "Butterbean" style tuners. It is a good one. Very clean and nice. This guitar sounds absolutely amazing.

  4. USED 2015 Martin 00-28VS Lefty

    "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.

  5. USED 1950's Martin Style 1 T1 Tenor Ukulele

    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.

  6. hold - Vintage 1967 Martin D-18 Rare Special Order

    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 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.
