Gibson J-50 1959 (Consignment) SOLD

This Gibson J-50 from 1959 definitely seems like it may have a few stories from the road. It has seen a lot of wear and tear and has been refinished and over sprayed on the top along with a replaced bridge and pickguard. The setup is low but plays well and that warm and sweet thump comes out nice and loud.

Martin D-28 2010 (Consignment) SOLD

Here is a great sounding D-28 that is in great overall condition with mostly cosmetic play wear. There is one small repaired crack in the back and the frets only have minor wear. The guitar is set up great and the low profile neck shape plays like butter. The installed L.R. Baggs M1 pickup has this guitar gig ready and looking to play!

Martin 00-18 1928 (Consignment) SOLD

This little mahogany 00 may have had a few trips around the block but it is in great overall shape for its age. The neck has been reset and the bridge replaced so the guitar plays very well and has a lot of saddle height to work with. The woody sounding bass and distinct midrange complement the softer rounded trebles for a lovely round tone. Very cool little guitar!!

Martin D-18 1952 SOLD

Here is a D-18 from the early 50’s that has seen some good hard playing time. There are a few repairs and lots of wear to the finish. The guitar is structurally sound but could use a neck reset to play well. The tone is full and warm with a nice balance through the bass, middle and treble frequencies.
