C. F. Martin 000-28 Steel String Guitar, 2006

C. F. Martin 000-28 Steel String Guitar, 2006

Overall, this C.F. Martin 000-28 Steel String guitar is in very nice condition, with minor wear. The finish doesn’t have any significant scratches, just very light scuffing that would polish well. Fret wear is light to moderate, and there’s plenty of material for a light fret dress to make them look new. The guitar has been played, but well cared for. This body style is tonally much more even than the big D body Dreadnoughts, which tend to be weighted towards bass.

G W Barry Concert Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2000

G W Barry Concert Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2000

This G W Barry Concert Cutaway steel string dates to the year 2000 and was built in Toronto, using Sitka Spruce for the top, paired with Indian Rosewood for the back, and sides, and streaked Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The neck and blocks are Mahogany, and the rosette uses and Abalone ring. The Barry concert body draws from the proportions of the Gibson J-185, but in a more curvaceous – dare we say bodacious – rendering of that design.

C. F. Martin 000-18 Steel String Guitar, 2015

C. F. Martin 000-18 Steel String Guitar, 2015

The C. F. Martin 000-18 is an extremely versatile, great sounding guitar with a smaller body and shorter scale length than the classic D-body Dreadnoughts. As an ’18’ level model, Mahogany is used for the back, sides and neck, with Sitka Spruce for the top and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The 000-18 is well known for its even, well represented tone, excellent for both strumming and fingerstyle.

Collings 001 Mh Mahogany Steel String Guitar, 2012

Collings 001 Mh Mahogany Steel String Guitar, 2012

The Collings 001 is based on a very traditional design that’s been a standard for over a century, and this example is built with Mahogany for the top, back and sides.  This fine guitar was built in Austin, Texas during 2012. Like every Collings we’ve seen, the build quality is exceptional, with excellent playability and great tone. It is good condition, and we’d rate and price it higher except that there is some subtle finish marking, visible only from close up – from more than a foot away, it’s nearly impossible to see it and doesn’t really show in the photos.
