❌SOLD❌  Jack Spira Cittern Australian Blackwood, 2005

This is unusual for us to see – a Jack Spira Cittern of Australian Blackwood, built during 2005 at Spira’s shop in Boolarra, east of Melbourne. Jack Spira has been building for over 30 years, focusing on steel string guitars in regular, tenor and baritone forms, plus Irish Bouzoukis, Citterns, and Octave Mandolins. He also does repair and custom work, in particular engraved inlays. His work is highly regarded, and popular enough that few make it to the used market in Canada.

❌SOLD❌ Martin D18 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, 1956

❌SOLD❌  Martin D18 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, 1956

The Martin D18 Dreadnought appeared in 1931 as banjo players increasingly converted to guitar, and required ever increasing volume levels. For the first three years, the D-18 was built with a 12-fret neck, but the banjo influence quickly added two more frets clear of the body. As a 14-fret dreadnought, the D18 and its sibling the D-28 rapidly became the guitar of choice for country, bluegrass and folk players.

❌SOLD❌  Martin D18 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, 1975

The Martin D18 is a classic, and has been one of the most popular guitar designs since its mass market introduction in the early 1930’s as a comeback from the mid 1910’s models built for the Ditson company. The Dreadnought was first built by Martin as the ‘Extra Large’ Ditson Model 111, between 1919 and 1930. Ditson was a prominent American music retail chain at the time. The earliest models used a fan style bracing pattern, but by 1924 an X brace was used.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson SJ-100 1941 Reissue Sunburst, 2013

❌SOLD❌  Gibson SJ-100 1941 Reissue Sunburst, 2013

Built in Bozeman, Montana and for the moment out of production, the Gibson SJ-100 1941 Reissue recreates the sound and feel of the pre-war Mahogany body jumbo. The Super Jumbo body style appeared in 1938 and is best known for the J-200 model, with Spruce top and Maple for the back and sides, and often highly decorated beyond the hand-painted pickguard. In 1939, the less expensive and less decorated SJ-100 appeared, with a Spruce top, but with Mahogany for the back and sides and with a much plainer – and thinner – pickguard.

The C. F. Martin 000-28EC Eric Clapton is based on the 000 model, first introduced in 1902 and with a number of updates has been in continuous production. It is very similar to the later OM or Orchestra model – the two models share the same body design but, the OM has a 25.4 inch scale length compared to the 000’s 24.9 inch.
