(USED) Kevin Kopp K-35, Adirondack, Brazilian – $6,950

(USED) Those who watch our website closely know that we adore Kevin Kopp’s guitars.  For our money, no one else does so well capturing the spirit, sound and feel of classic Gibby flattops.  They are consistently amazing, yet we always smile when we strum that first chord on a Kopp… a delightful familiarity washes over us, and we feel like

SOLD – (USED) National Estralita Deluxe, Wood Body, Single Cone – SOLD

(USED) Here’s a gen-u-ine National that will have you rocking, rolling and tumbling without breaking the bank (or your back!)  The Estralita is a very cool, wood-bodied, single-cone reso-phonic guitar with tons of vibe and tons of sound.  Significantly lighter than a steel or brass-bodied reso, but has the funky sound that you want in such an instrument… and gosh,

(NEW) Custom Huss & Dalton CM 12-fret, Cutaway, Black with Thermo-Cured Red Spruce Top, and Some Bling! – $8,295 – SOLD

(NEW) One of our favorite models from Huss & Dalton is their original design, the CM. These guitars reside in the sweet spot between the dreadnought and OM, blending the bigger bass of the former with the balance and comfort of the latter.  This one is a custom deal with a long list of tonal and cosmetic enhancements: Thermo-Cured Red Spruce top East

(USED) Collings D1A Doghair, Black-Top – $4,950

(USED) A more rockin’ guitar we could not ask for… this D1A is just a feast for the eyes and ears.  Incredibly loud and authoritative, this guitar refuses to go unnoticed. Coming to us in EX+ condition, with no dings, scratches or fretwear, a lovely Adirondack-topped mahogany dreadnought from the master of mahogany dreadnoughts, Bill Collings. The distinctive “Doghair” finish

(NEW) Kevin Kopp Advanced Jumbo, AJ, Adirondack, Madrose, Sunburst – $5,650

(NEW) This is a treat, a powerful AJ from our main man in Montana, master luthier Kevin Kopp! To those more familiar with jumbos of the short scale, “35” variety, the Advanced Jumbo is a whole other animal.  This guitar is a full 25.5″ scale, and though it’s not lacking in warmth and tonal complexity (thank you, Madagascar rosewood!) it

(NEW) Pleinview Guitars Orchestra Model, German Spruce, Sacha RW – SOLD

(NEW) There’s a little workshop in the back of our store, where AMW luthier Raymond Morin and his partner Adam Rousseau build Pleinview Guitars.  They’ve got a few dozen under their belt at this point, and this latest is a custom OM, with German spruce top and Peruvian “Sacha” rosewood back and sides. We love German spruce on softer rosewoods,

(USED) Shanti SF Model, Small Jumbo, Cutaway – $6,695

(USED) We’re often heard extolling the virtues of the small factories and shops that make up the bulk of our business… there is something comforting about the near-perfect fit and finish, not to mention the consistent high quality of sound that we’ve come to expect from our friends at Collings, Huss & Dalton and Bourgeois.  Every now and again, though,

SOLD – (USED) Cosmetically-Bruised LEFT-HANDED Collings C-10 Custom Sunburst, DEEP-BODY! – $3,000

(USED)  Another day, another cool Collings guitar available at AMW! Here is a ten-year-old, heavily “personalized” LEFT-HANDED deep body rosewood C-10 with Sitka spruce top in sunburst. It “appears” the guitar was played aggressively with a thumb pick, or used to fend off an angry spouse or heckler. There are LOTS of deep scratches and gouges in the general picking area (and some that are

(USED) M.J. Franks Legacy Dreadnought, Adirondack, Brazilian – $5,795

(USED) Increasingly sought out for his ukuleles and resonators, Michigan luthier Mike Franks also builds a FINE traditional guitar!  We’re very pleased to present this Legacy dreadnought, featuring an Adirondack spruce top and figured Brazilian rosewood back and sides.  This instrument has all the guts and volume of a classic vintage Herringbone, with a nice booming bass but a midrange that

SOLD – (USED) Huss & Dalton DS Custom, Slope D, Adirondack, Rosewood – SOLD

(USED) Just arrived on consignment, a Huss & Dalton DS, 14-fret with an Adirondack top, Indian rosewood back and sides and a dark sunburst finish.  This is a long-scale slope-shouldered dreadnought, reminiscent of an Advanced Jumbo, with a very focused bass and well-defined, sparkly trebles.  The instrument has tons of headroom, and responds very well to heavy strumming or picking.

(NEW) Waterloo WL-12, Jet Black, 12-Fret, Sitka, Maple – SOLD

(NEW) We’ve been looking forward to this one for a while! Over the last year, Collings/Waterloo has built a few custom WL-12s for the likes of Rodney Crowell, St. Vincent, and others using their popular jet black finish option. Now that option is available to the rest of us! Looks sharp, doesn’t it? The WL-12 is an x-braced, 12-fret L-00

(USED) Spectacular Huss & Dalton Pilgrim Dreadnought, First Ever, Brazilian – SOLD

(USED) We are big fans of Bluegrass Flatpicking guitar in general, and the styles of Clarence White and Tony Rice in particular.  About 18 months ago, Mark Dalton and I wondered aloud how they might be able to bring Huss & Dalton’s own fresh approach and voicing to the whole “large sound hole” dreadnought concept…. Just arrived, back on consignment at our humble lumber and tone emporium

(USED) Just in on consignment and in excellent condition, we have a late model D28 Authentic 1937, one that utilizes Martin’s VTS torrefaction technology to achieve its vintage sound.  It sounds very good indeed, with warm, pillowy bass, sparkly trebles and plenty of volume. The Martin Vintage Tone System is a process wherein the top is thermally cured (or torrefied) to

SOLD – (USED) National Triolian, 12-Fret, Steel Body – SOLD

(USED) Here is resophonic guitar at its most elemental… a wonderful Triolian from National!  Single cone and steel of body, this one has “the sound!”  It shimmies, it shakes, it hums (but it don’t rattle, sorry).  Just back from National for some finish touch up on the neck, this guitar has a fresh setup and plays like butter. 1 13/16″

(NEW) Collings CJ-35, Sitka Spruce, Mahogany, Sunburst – $4,860

(NEW) Slope-shouldered perfection!  The CJ-35 might well be the pinnacle of this classic design, combining the warm and woody sound of the originals with Collings’ signature midrange sparkle and just enough “thump”.  The CJ-35 is an excellent all-purpose guitar, ample in volume and not afraid of a pick, but certainly responsive enough for fingerstyle.  This one has a Sitka spruce
