❌ SOLD ❌ Hopf Archtop Guitar for Remeny Music, 1950s

❌ SOLD ❌ Hopf Archtop Guitar for Remeny Music, 1950s

Here’s an interesting archtop guitar carrying a bit of world and local history – a Hopf archtop guitar built for and imported by Remeny Music in Toronto. There are two names associated with this instrument, Hopf and Remeny (now spelled in its original Hungarian form as Remenyi). Both have significant histories affected by European wars and trends. Hopf has been a well-established German maker of classical instruments since 1909 with interruptions during the world wars, but in the postwar era and until the 1970s built or commissioned archtop and electric guitars.

❌SOLD❌   Baldwin Vibraslim Bass Semi-Hollow Sunburst, 1966

The Baldwin Vibraslim Bass was built between 1965 and 1970, but its first appearance was as a Burns model. Over time, the Baldwin label took prominence. This bass dates to around 1966 – the first Burns run had the controls mounted on the pickguard and had a more traditional tailpiece, which was replaced by the Rezo-Tube bridge.

❌SOLD❌ Huss and Dalton TOM-M Torrefied OM Mahogany Steel String

❌SOLD❌ 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.

❌SOLD❌ Webber Jumbo Soft Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2007 REDUCED

❌SOLD❌ Webber Jumbo Soft Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2007 REDUCED

The Webber Jumbo body is an elegant guitar, combining the upper bout shape of an OM Style guitar with a large, circular lower bout. This tight-waisted guitar is smaller at 16 inches across than most conventional jumbo designs. As it is also slightly shallower, the body fits comfortably under the player’s arm. It delivers a big, well defined bass response with a strong mid range, making this guitar a great choice for Jazz comping or rhythm accompaniment.
Dating to 2007, this Webber Jumbo includes the Soft Cutaway option, which is a bit shorter or ‘softer’ than most traditional Venetian cutaways. In very good condition with very little wear, it is built with a Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood for the back and sides.

❌ SOLD ❌ C. F. Martin OM-45 Marquis Steel String Guitar, 2004

❌ SOLD ❌ C. F. Martin OM-45 Marquis Steel String Guitar, 2004

The C. F. Martin OM-45 Marquis is a top of the line instrument, built like the Golden Era line but with Indian instead of Brazilian Rosewood. It would be the crown jewel in anyone’s guitar collection! The top and its vintage-scalloped bracing are Adirondack Spruce. The nut and saddle are definitely special, made of fossilized Ivory. This is a 45 style guitar, so it uses an abalone shell liner for the perimeter and soundhole, Snowflake fingerboard inlay set and Martin headstock logo. The neck is mahogany with a bound ebony fingerboard. And, there’s a K & K pickup installed!

❌SOLD❌ Bourgeois Slope D Steel String Sunburst, 2003

❌SOLD❌ Bourgeois Slope D Steel String Sunburst, 2003

The Bourgeois Slope D draws from the classics – the slope, or round shouldered dreadnought guitars introduced in the late 1930’s by Gibson and to some degree the earlier Ditson Martins. Many of Gibson’s J sized models – the J-35 and iconic J-45 used this body design. Bourgeois takes the idea and executes it flawlessly with the highest quality materials.
This Bourgeois Slope D was built during 2004 in Lewiston, Maine, and features a Sitka Spruce top with a sunburst finish. The sides, back and neck are mahogany, with an ebony fingerboard and bridge.
