(USED) Huss & Dalton TOM-M Custom, Sinker Mahogany, Adirondack Spruce – $2,950

(USED) There’s something so comfortable about a traditional mahogany OM.  When it’s built by the right luthier or shop, we find that we’re almost instantly at home, both in terms of the sound of the instrument but also the overall feel and “vibe”.  When the OM is built by Huss & Dalton, it’s more or less guaranteed to be fantastic!

(NEW) Huss & Dalton Crossroads, Thermo-Cured Adirondack Spruce, Mahogany – $4,815

(NEW) The L-00 shape is a classic, and believe it or not, it’s not easy to get everything just right. Some builders’ versions are too sweet, some too boxy and compressed… but one shop that has nailed the tone and vibe of a pre-war L-00 is Huss & Dalton with their Crossroads. When it was introduced a few years back,

(NEW) Collings OM1A Julian Lage Signature Model, Adirondack Spruce, Mahogany, 1 3/4″ Nut – $5,692

(NEW) Beard Deco Phonic, Round-Neck Resonator Guitar, Vintage Sunburst, w/ Pickup – $2,100

(NEW) We’re very excited about the new instruments that Beard began producing in 2017.  They continue to innovate in the small world of resophonic acoustic and electric guitars, and for our money, there’s nothing better.  The latest addition to their line is the Deco Phonic, a bare-bones wood-bodied reso with and old soul.  Built with Finnish birch veneer construction, these

(NEW) Bourgeois JOM-T, Jumbo OM, Large Soundhole, Aged Tone Adirondack Top, Guatemalan Rosewood B/S – $7,375

(NEW) As supplies of the traditionally beloved tropical timbers like Brazilian rosewood, Madagascar rosewood etc continue to dwindle, we and our manufacturers continue to seek out new sources of amazing tone.  For a guitar to have the “it factor” that combines looks, sound and feel into something greater than the sum of its parts, everything has to come together perfectly.

This instrument is a bluegrass MONSTER!  Featuring a super wide-grained thermo-cured

(NEW) For store stock… Even though there is a lot of chatter in the guitar world about Collings’ recent line of “Traditional” models, we humbly suggest that you never count out this modern classic, the OM1.  This model always impresses with it’s warm, woody sound, and this lightly-built example is as good as any in recent memory.  It features a

(USED) These don’t come around often, a lightly used WL-S or “Stella” as it’s affectionately known around here! We love this model, it is the smallest in the Waterloo line and has a sweet sound that really draws the player in. Why would anyone give up such a lovely little guitar? To get the Deluxe version, of course! He got

(NEW) Ladies and gentlemen, we have a smash hit on our hands with these JOM-Ts from Bourgeois Guitars.
