  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. *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.

Owned by a single family since 1940, when it was bought by our customer's father at a pawn shop on historic Beale Street here in Memphis, TN. Still has its 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.
