"We had this one made up special". You've heard that before, but this time it's actually true. Eric, our beloved leader, ordered this Bourgeois OM all-Mahogany with a few special things. First off, this model usually comes with spruce top, but this was ordered with a mahogany top. These also usually have tortoise color binding, but this has a multi-layered Ivoroid binding and Ivoroid pickguard, with matching Ivoroid tuning keys. The Ivoroid touch is absolutely stunning against the dark, reddish finish. So, an all mahogany OM size guitar. How cool is that? Think of say, a 1946 Gibson L-G2 all mahogany: it is similar as far as tone, but with more balance and clarity. The all-mahogany style is also reminiscent of Martin's 0M-15 style, but done with much nicer aesthetics. It is perfect for finger-style guitar. This guitar is not only beautiful, the sound is unbelievable! It's my favorite acoustic guitar in the shop right now. It's awesome on every level: playabilty, sound, looks, it's got it all. An American Beauty, that's what this guitar is. Comes with hard case. Oh, and you can tell all your friends, "They had this one made up special". You'll be the envy of the neighborhood.Learn More

This Doheny has been upgraded with Tortoise Shell Pickguard and Vintage Satin Tint neck finish.
Inspired by the classic surf sound born in Southern California, the new G&L Doheny takes its name from the iconic beach in the heart of Orange County where 60's surf pioneers became legends. Since those halcyon days, both music and surfing have evolved far beyond their roots, and so has the performance of the gear.Learn More
Doheny takes the bolt-on offset-body into new sonic territory with newly developed Magnetic Field Design jazz pickups, the first on any production G&L. Naturally, these new pickups will invite comparison to Leo’s jumbo MFD ASAT Special pickups, given they employ a narrow bobbin aperture and broad coil splay. But Doheny's MFD pickups are more about jangle than twang, just as they should be for a guitar like this. With a classic jazz bobbin aperture wrapped with traditional Formvar wire, these pickups just might be the approach Leo would have taken had he been with us a few years longer.
So what’s it like? The sound is rich in harmonics yet surprisingly full, the result of carefully researching and applying Leo's creative work across the decades. The Doheny pickups deliver the experience fans have hoped for, with their flexibility maximized by the PTB tone system that allows echoes of yesteryear while delivering more output and range for today’s music. Add in Leo's finest vibrato for enhanced tuning stability and improved sustain, and the results are astounding.

Wood, that's the heart and soul of a guitar. You got to have the right wood. Take this new limited edition Suhr Modern Satin Pro HSH. It's made of African Okoume. How's that for a name? Also known as African Mahogany. It's a lovely wood, lightweight, and has some great tonal characteristics. It's reminiscent of mahogany...to my ears it's tonally very similar to Korina. It has a thin, satin finish that allows the guitar to resonate to its fullest potential. This is a guitar for serious folks...folks that want clean, articulate tone when called for. Of course, you have to be able to play clean and articulately, but if you're looking at this guitar, you've already got that part down. It weighs 6 lbs, 6 oz. From the heaviest of rock to the most mellow of jazz, this covers all the bases. Comes with deluxe Suhr gig bag.Learn More
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".Learn More
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.Learn More
The Sadowsky Metro MV4 is simply an incredible bass. Sadowsky's build quality is incredible. These basses feel so smooth, they are perfection. Featuring an Ash body with Vintage Tint Natural finish and full maple neck. Tonally this bass has superb defination and clarity. Active 2 band preamp and passive VTC (Vintage tone control) allows everything from modern cutting tones, to the best retro sounds you have ever heard coming out of the one instrument. It's like a Jazz Bass on steroids. These basses are true modern classics. Comes with Sadowsky Protec hard gig bag.Learn More
I wonder if Leo Fender knew when he saw the first Fender Stratocaster roll off the production line that he had invented an iconic guitar? An instrument that would help define popular music and popular culture for decades, and would still be going strong 60 years later. Probably not. I bet he thought, "Well, I hope somebody buys it". We are a ways down the from the inception of the Fender Stratocaster and I promise you people will continue playing them for many years to come. Today we have a very cool, 2006 Fender Stratocaster 60th Anniversary Standard made in the USA. Fender made this guitar to commemorate the company's founding 1946-2006.Learn More
What makes this guitar special: This is a great anniversary model that takes the tried and true American Standard and adds a nice twist in terms of tone. This model comes loaded with American Vintage '57 pickups that still carry many of the traditional Stratocaster tones, yet has a slightly smoother response through the middle positions, with a warmer low end and shimmer in the top. Plus, it also comes with the Delta Tone circuit that adds a little extra heat to the bridge and mid-range throughout. Other than that, it is a solid-playing, great-sounding, and classic-looking American Stratocaster. It has the 60th Anniversary medallion on the back of the headstock, and a special logo on the front with a diamond inside. This guitar is super clean, it still has the plastic coating on the pickguard. The neck is straight and true. The frets are in perfect condition. It plays and sounds great. The maple neck has an Indian rosewood fingerboard with a comfortable C profile. The sunburst finish is beautiful. This guitar comes with a special 60th Anniversary case with grey tolex and red, plush interior. The case shows some wear and comes with all the case candy and strap.
Bob Taylor has been making fine guitars for many years. When he puts his name on a signature guitar, then you know it's a good one. Taylor is not making the R Taylor Signature line right now, so this is a rare opportunity to own one. Taylor used only his most experienced craftsman on these instruments, with the best woods, in a small shop setting outside of the regular Taylor Guitar prodution. Here we have a 2006 R Taylor Style 1. Spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Ebony fingerboard, and an Ebony contoured arm bevel. The Laskin Armrest is a fantastic option that makes the guitar much more comfortable to play...it was also an additional $1500. The R Taylor guitars have a one-piece neck, without the scarf joint like the regular Taylor production guitars have. It is an amazing sounding guitar, that is perfectly suited for both strumming and fingerpicking. The kerfing is steamed and bent just the way cellos are made. The bridge plate is inlaid into the top, creating better tone and sound transference. It has the Expression system electronics, which sounds great. This guitar is clean and nice. The neck is straight and true. The frets are in perfect condition. There is a ding on the back, but it does not go through to the wood. It has the deluxe R Taylor case. A truly fantastic guitar. It's our acoustic salesman's current favorite guitar in the shop...you better buy it before he does.Learn More
The year 1938! Of course you all remember that as the year Sea Biscuit beat War Admiral. It was also the year of the famous Orson Wells broadcast that caused panic in the streets. A new house cost $3,900. The average wage was 1730.00 per year. A loaf of bread cost 9 cents. It was also the year somebody bought this cool Rickenbacker Model 59 lap steel. We are talking history here folks, and boy is this instrument is full of history. It is stamped metal with a screaming, original horseshoe pickup, volume and tone knobs, and original black/gray burst finish. One tuner has been repaired with a different button. One knob is broken but is functional. Comes with original case. It shows a fair amount of wear; it is 80 years old after all. This is a great blues lap steel. Tune her to open E and let it wail! Make this beautiful old Rick lap steel yours, and relive 1938 forever.Learn More
