SOLD!!! Collings MF5 F-Style Mandolin

We have just taken delivery of another Collings MF5 f-style mandolin from Bill Collings’ Austin Texas workshop. At last count, we had over 40 mandolins in stock. There is always one that stands out above the rest; always one that just has that warm throaty midrange bark; that sparkling presence; that low end chunk; that power. This is the one. THE ONE! The numero uno!!!!!

It started with a 35th Anniversary model and Bob Taylor liked the design so much that the 12 Fret Grand Concert model was put into regular production.

No Longer Available – Martin Custom HD-28 Sunburst

Martin’s HD-28 has been quietly out-selling most other dreadnoughts of ANY brand name for the last ten years. This model is perhaps the perfect blend of vintage features and modern improvements with its traditional scalloped bracing pattern, tortoiseshell pickguard & herringbone marquetry combined with a modern low profile neck and intonation compensated bridge!

❌SOLD❌ Martin 00-28VS (Discontinued)

❌SOLD❌  Martin 00-28VS (Discontinued)

Here we’re featuring the recent reissue of the Martin 00-28VS. Believe it or not, this model was initially introduced in 1898 … and at that time was the largest guitar they produced! Of course today this little 14″ parlor style guitar is sought after for its exceptionally even string-to-string response with a fundamental-rich warm overall tonality!

(Discontinued) Martin HD-16R Adirondack

After producing a large bodied instrument under the Ditson brand, in 1931 the Martin Company began producing dreadnought guitars that carried the Martin name. The D–1, like the earlier Ditsons, was a mahogany body instrument, destined to become the D–18. With the D–2, Martin introduced what may still be the most popular style of steel string guitar, the rosewood body dreadnought. All of Martin’s early dreadnoughts had the 12–fret neck of the Ditson design. It wasn’t until 1934 that D–28s and D–18s officially were offered with the 14–fret neck that most consider the industry standard today.

(Discontinued) Martin OM-21 Special

I think that every time I walked by the Martin booth at this year’s NAMM music trade show, there was a large crowd around the Martin OM-21 Special! It really did make quite an impression with a LOT of dealers and it’s not surpising considering the features … bone nut & saddle, Gotoh butterbeans with pewter finish, crisply executed ebony pyramid bridge, wide fingerstyle-friendly string spacing on a low profile neck, retro looking rosewood binding and a premium tortoiseshell pickguard on the vintage toner Sitka top!
