❌ SOLD ❌ Ludwig Ambassador Tenor Banjo Walnut, 1926

❌ SOLD ❌ Ludwig Ambassador Tenor Banjo Walnut, 1926

The Ludwig Ambassador tenor banjo is an example of a business recognizing opportunity. The Ludwig Drum Company started in 1909 and by the early 1920’s realized that banjos are closely related to drums, and offered a range of models. However, by the early 1930’s as banjos started to wane, Ludwig moved back to its core business – and is still a respected name in drum manufacturing.

Yair Stern Octave Mandola Maple Walnut, 2018

Yair Stern Octave Mandola Maple Walnut, 2018

This Yair Stern Octave Mandola is a new instrument, and is well made with quality materials. The tone is warm yet bright and snappy, well balanced with good clarity and separation. It is very comfortable to play and its light hand applied finish provides some protection but does not restrict the wood’s vibration. The tailpiece is a cast, gold plated AShton Bailey unit. The tuners are also chrome plated, with faux pearl buttons.

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson Les Paul Artisan Guitar, 1977

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson Les Paul Artisan Guitar, 1977

The Gibson Les Paul Artisan was built during the middle of the 1967-1986 Norlin period. The body uses the Les Paul Custom theme of bound, carved three-piece maple cap, on a bound mahogany back, but also uses a three-piece maple neck (five if you count the ‘wings’ for the headstock width). The ebony fingerboard and headplate are both bound, and as mentioned both the headstock and fingerboard feature a hearts-and-flowers mother of pearl inlay and script logo set that clearly draw from classic Gibson banjos. The Artisan is one of the very few Gibson guitar models to use this type of inlay pattern.
