  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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. *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.
