❌SOLD❌ Waterloo WL14 LTR Ladder Braced Guitar Boot Burst, 2018

❌SOLD❌  Waterloo WL14 LTR Ladder Braced Guitar Boot Burst, 2018

Harkening back to the 1920s and 1930s, the Waterloo WL14 LTR leads the Waterloo line, available with ladder or X bracing and a very thin nitrocellulose lacquer Boot Burst finish.
Waterloo guitars aim to reproduce the sound of depression-era instruments, but are built to the highest standards by people who really know and care about their craft. The outcome is probably as good as these designs can be, which is saying something.

❌SOLD❌ Heritage H575 Cutaway Archtop Electric Blonde, 1990

❌SOLD❌  Heritage H575 Cutaway Archtop Electric Blonde, 1990

The Heritage H575 is a take on the classic single-cutaway Maple laminate archtop electric, and clearly draws from the Gibson ES-175 that originated in the building Heritage now occupies. Heritage was formed by former Gibson employees who did not want to leave Kalamazoo when Gibson completed its move to Nashville. This Heritage H575 dates to 1990 and was built at the Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Like every other Heritage we’ve seen, it is very well built and finished.

❌SOLD❌ Eastman MD904D Two Point Mandolin Natural, 2010

❌SOLD❌  Eastman MD904D Two Point Mandolin Natural, 2010

The Eastman MD904D Two Point oval hole mandolin follows the modified A Style or ‘teardrop’ pioneered by Orville Gibson around 1900. This model perhaps most resembles the Gibson A5 two point, built from 1957 to 1979.   As an oval hole model, it will have a somewhat warmer tone compared to the percussive ‘chop’ of an F-hole model.  Featuring a solid, carved Sitka Spruce top paired with carved, solid Flame Maple back, with matching Flamed Maple for the sides and neck and binding, and with gold plated hardware, this Eastman MD904D Two Point was built during 2010 near Beijing and is in good shape with minor wear.

❌SOLD❌ Weber Big Sky F Style Mandolin with Tone-Gard, Sunburst 2000
