Robert Laughlin has been building guitars, mandolins and related stringed instruments in Vancouver,  British Columbia since 1977.   He started building following a night course run by Bill Lewis, who went on to found Luthiers Mercantile.

Its body design is a bit smaller than a dreadnought, and is built with a Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood for the back, sides, headplate and bridge with Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the fingerboard.

SOLD!!! SS Stewart Sunburst Steel String Acoustic Guitar, 1930s

SOLD!!! SS Stewart Sunburst Steel String Acoustic Guitar, 1930s

The SS Stewart company, named for Samuel Swain Stewart was a major producer of banjos between 1878 and 1904, and was bought by B&J (Bugellsein & Jacobson) a few years after Stewart’s death. Over the years, B&J shifted to producing mostly guitars with the brand, had many companies build the actual instruments including Chicago Musical Instruments, who also built Harmony, Kay, and Silvertone brands. At the end of the 1920s and the start of the 1930’s, both C F Martin and Gibson also produced some SS Stewart guitars.

Gibson 1941 SJ-100 Jumbo Steel String Guitar, 2013

Gibson 1941 SJ-100 Jumbo Steel String Guitar, 2013

The Gibson 1941 SJ-100, built in Bozeman Montana, recreates one of the rarest Gibson acoustics – the SJ-100, using a Super Jumbo body with Mahogany back and sides. These were first introduced in 1939, replaced in 1941 but rapidly discontinued with under 180 built.
The 1941 SJ-100 uses Sitka Spruce for the top and braces, Mahogany for the back, sides and neck, and Indian Rosewood for the fingerboard and bridge. An L R Baggs Element pickup is installed at the factory, like most modern Gibson acoustics, and it’s ready to go. The headstock shape is very reminiscent of the late 1930’s and 1940’s pegheads, with a Mother of Pearl script Gibson logo.

Huss and Dalton TOM-M Torrefied OM Mahogany Steel String

Huss and Dalton TOM-M Torrefied OM Mahogany Steel String

The Huss and Dalton TOM-M was our on staff expert, Mike Gray’s favourite guitar at the 2017 NAMM show.   The name means that it has a Torrefied spruce top on an OM or Orchestra Model size body that has Mahogany back and sides.   Torrefaction is a process of carefully heat-treating tonewoods to simulate the effects of decades of aging, and helps produce a warmer,  open tone – helping a new, relatively unplayed instrument sound and respond as if it had years of being played.   
As with all Huss and Dalton instruments, the fit, finish and attention to detail is unmatched.  These guitars play very well, sound great, and are very responsive.
