  1. USED 1985 Taylor 710 Lemon Grove Dreadnought Sitka Rosewood
    $1,595.00

    1985 doesn't seem like it was 33 years ago. When you say something happened in 1990 my mind thinks of that as being just 10 years ago. Time sure does fly. Most Taylor aficionados will consider this 710, built in 1985, a vintage model. Made in the original Lemon Grove factory, Taylor only made 681 guitars in 1985. Vintage Taylors are known for having plenty of volume and this one lives up to this reputation with ease. Easy to play and light as a feather, it could fill a large room with minimal effort from the player. Frets are in near-perfect condition. Overall a well seasoned, fantastic instrument that has opened up beautifully in its 33 years. In great condition, with the typical cosmetic wear you'd expect. No repairs, no separations, and no issues. Passive Thinline under saddle pickup. The pickguard has been replaced with a new one, and the original one will be included inside the case. Just recently set up with Elixir 16102 phosphor bronze medium string. It is ready to go.

  2. USED Vintage 1960 Gibson J-45 Acoustic
    $4,500.00

    This is my favorite guitar in the whole world. That's a pretty bold statement I know, but I'm in love with vintage Gibson J-45 guitars. I especially love tobacco sunburst, adjustable bridge J-45 guitars. Here we have a 1960 Gibson J-45 ADJ in tobacco sunburst, ceramic adjustable bridge with a newer, non-original chipboard case. Serial number #R5835-19. It's a one-owner guitar, and it's been played a lot. There is pickwear around the soundhole, and pickguard cracks. That's fairly standard for models from this era. The original owner put his initials with mailbox letter on the headstock and front of the guitar. They are small and unobtrusive, I would leave them there, It adds character and history in my humble opinion, but they can be removed. The neck has a 1-11/16" nut width. The bridge has a slight lift at the edges on the treble and bass sides...it hasn't moved in 30 years, so it should be fine for many more years to come. The overall condition is very good. Some nicks, dings and scratches, and some pick wear, as mentioned earlier. Action is a respectable .100" at the 12th frets of the low E string and .070" at the 12th fret of the high E string. This is a solid, well loved guitar that sounds like a million dollars. It's awesome, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. To find a one-owner vintage guitar doesn't happen that often these days. The gentleman we got it from is 96, and he bought it new. That is so cool.

  3. USED 1999 Gibson Hummingbird Custom Koa RARE Cherry Sunburst
    $4,250.00

    Do you like fancy guitars? I sure do. I always think of them as cowboy guitars for some reason or another. I remember watching reruns of old Gene Autry movies and being blown away by the guitars. Then in the 60's we had country music every Saturday here in Memphis on TV. The guitars were mind blowing. Now this is a fancy guitar: a 1999 Gibson Hummingbird Custom Koa. Lord, Lord, it's an eyecatcher. Made by Gibson in 1999 in Bozeman, Montana. Gibson's famous Hummingbird has been masterfully recreated with abalone rosette and top binding, hand-engraved iconic birds and butterflies on the headstock and bridge, Sitka Spruce top, and beautiful AAA Koa back and sides. This one has a cherry sunburst...a rare option for this Koa version. It also features gold Grover engraved tuners, and ebony fingerboard with Orpheum-style abalone inlays. Much of the Hummingbird’s appeal lies in its versatility. However you attack this thing, it pumps out rich, deep tones, and is equally at home strumming those first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for flatpicking lead lines. The tonewood combination of spruce and koa allow for a clear and balanced sound. It's very clean, shows very, minimal playing wear. Some finishing checking on the top. Some button wear on the back. The neck is straight and true. Action is low and fast. The frets are in near perfect condition showing only the slightest hints of being played. The neck is perfect with a 1-11/16" width nut. Besides being a stunner, it is amazing sounding. Comes with original hard case.

  9. *PRICE DROP!!* USED Taylor XXXV-GS-W 35th Anniversary Limited Edition

    Regular Price: $4,700.00

    Special Price $3,750.00

    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".

  10. 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.

  11. USED 1998 Gibson Custom Shop AJ Advanced Jumbo Brazilian Rosewood
    $5,000.00

    This is a cool and rare guitar. It's a monster. We have a 1998 Gibson Custom Shop Advanced Jumbo Brazilian. That's right, Brazilian Rosewood. How cool is that? This guitar looks and sounds unbelievable. It plays great: the action is nice, low, and easy. It's great for finger picking AND strumming. Everything you'd want out of a Gibson acoustic. Jackson Browne has one of these, along with his 30's Advanced Jumbos. It has been re-fretted and PLEK'd, and the bridge has been reglued; no other repairs. There is light wear, nicks, dings, and scratches - nothing major. The finish has sunken into the grain in places on the back: typical of lacquer finishes on Brazilian rosewood. Still overall the condition is excellent. The sunburst finish looks so authentic; as does the pickguard, which is the old-style striped kind. The neck is wide and big, and feels great. It's got a 1 7/8" nut width. It has open back Grover tuners as well. Gibson will not be making any more Brazilian Rosewood guitars, and this one is priced right. Comes with hard shell case.

  12. *Reduced Price* Vintage 1950's Gibson Radio Tone Dobro 7 String SUPER RARE!
    $7,500.00

    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.
