Beneteau Dreadnought 1991 (Consignment) SOLD

Warm, woody and big would be a great way to describe this dreadnought from Mark Beneteau!! While showing a bit of cosmetic wear and tear this guitar is in great overall shape and has really got some jump when you dig in! Comes with a standard black hardshell case.

G.W. Barry Concert CW 2005 (Consignment) SOLD

Lush full bass response that seems to come from the center of earth, silky smooth midrange and round sparkling trebles meld with complex overtones on this beautiful Barry Concert Cutaway. It is like having a small orchestra inside and melodies just waiting to leap out of the sound hole. This example from 2005 in in near mint condition and comes with the K and K Trinity pickup. This guitar definitely possesses the three C’s: clarity, complexity and comfort!!!

Harrison GB Custom 2002 (Consignment) SOLD

Harrison GB Custom 2002 (Consignment) SOLD

Here is a beautiful GB Custom from luthier Doug Harrison. This luxurious and
comfortable single cutaway thinline guitar is sporting a bit of a Gretsch vibe with its Filtertron neck humbucker, custom carved pickguard and thumbnail fretboard markers. The honey tint burst on the top is so smooth you can almost taste the sweetness and the low profile neck shape is oh so comfortable. As always with Harrison guitars this example is a well thought out design with premium woods and components and a masterful build construction!

G.W. Barry Concert Cutaways SOLD

Imagine my surprise and elation when one of my all time favourite luthiers walks into the store with not one but two of my favourite models the Concert Cutaway with side port! It is similar to unwrapping a Christmas present and finding two slightly different versions of the toy you always wanted!!

920 Kingston Road was the first address of The Twelfth Fret in 1977. It had been empty for some time when we moved in, but later I realized that it had been a Luthier’s Mecca since 1954.
