It’s always a pleasure to play guitars like this 1961 Gibson J-45 adjustable bridge. The body design and neck shape are very comfortable, and they produce an envelopingly warm, rich tone, especially if they’ve been part of a lot of playing over the decades, as this one has.

Capek F5 Basic Mandolin

Capek F5 Basic Mandolin

Recently we were visited by Rost’a Capek and his wife, who live and work in Prauge, Czech Republic. Capek has been building instruments – primarily banjos and mandolin family members – for bluegrass and jazz players for over 26 years. We’ve just taken delivery of a Capek F5 Basic Mandolin model, and it is impressive. The build quality is very high and the instrument sounds great.

1960 Gibson LG-1 Sunburst (consignment) NO LONGER AVAILABLE

The LG-1 was introduced in 1942, along with the LG-2 and LG-3. However, the demands of World War 2 almost immediately stopped the production of the LG-1 and LG-3, and they were re-introduced in 1945. In its first release, the LG-1 had a brown top finish, but received a sunburst finish after the war. Production ended in 1974.
