(USED) Spectacular Huss & Dalton Pilgrim Dreadnought, First Ever, Brazilian – $7,995

(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

SOLD – (USED) Martin D28 Authentic 1937, VTS Adirondack, Madagascar RW – SOLD

(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

(NEW) Collings CJ-35, Sitka Spruce, Mahogany – $4,320

(NEW) The CJ-35 takes Collings’ version of the Gibson Jumbo in a more vintage-inspired direction, with a warmer, woodier voice and the meatier Vintage Now neck. These specs make it a great all-rounder, perfect for strumming and accompanying singing, but no slouch when it comes to blues and fingerstyle. This one has a *flawless* Sitka spruce top and mahogany back

(NEW) Waterloo WL-14 Scissortail, Sitka, Maple – $2,250

(NEW) This is Collings’ latest addition to his inspired line of guitars based on the simple, depression era catalog instruments of the 20s and 30s. The Waterloo WL-14 is the flagship model, and is still by far the most popular instrument in the line. The “Scissortail,” named for a bird local to Texas, takes the same L-00 shape and makes

(NEW) Waterloo WL-JK Jumbo King, Sitka, Mahogany, Sunburst – $2,070

(NEW) The biggest guitar in the Waterloo lineup is the new vintage-style Jumbo King!  From the playful minds and skillful hands of the Waterloo division of the Collings Guitar Co. in Austin, Texas. Those folks have another WINNER on their hands!!  An American made, handcrafted vintage-style guitar with exceedingly fine intonation and playability. With a light weight and dry tone that calls to mind the

(NEW) Waterloo WL-K, Kel Kroydon Inspired, Spruce, Mahogany – $2,340

(NEW) Bill Collings and his Waterloo line of guitars have really caught the world’s attention. The WL-K, inspired by the depression-era Kel Kroydon guitars that Gibson was producing, is one of the most intriguing models in the lineup. It’s ultra-light weight, usually coming in around or under 3 lbs, and comes with a recommendation to use 11 gauge strings. Being

(NEW) Waterloo WL-14X, T-Bar Neck – $1,890

(NEW) The success of Waterloo was completely expected by us, and is wholly justified… these little boxes rock!  The flagship WL-14 continues to be a top-seller, and we’ve lost count of how many of these we’ve passed on to happy customers. This is a sunbust example with X-bracing (generally considered to be a little warmer and more complex sounding than

(USED) Julius Borges L-00, Adirondack Spruce, Maple – SOLD

(USED) We are very pleased to present a phenomenal handmade L-00 by master luthier Julius Borges, based in Groton MA.  Borges’ guitars are highly prized and considered some of the finest traditionally inspired instruments available.  Hot hide glue construction, traditional dovetail necks, Adirondack braces and a thin nitro over shellac finish give his guitars the sound and feel of the

(USED) Bourgeois JOM Deluxe, Adirondack, Figured Mahogany – SOLD

(USED) Many Bourgeois players believe that Dana’s original Jumbo Orchestra Model is about the perfect guitar… with an increased body depth, and about a 20% bigger box overall, the JOM adds volume and bass response that a standard Orchestra Model doesn’t quite muster.  The tight waist keeps the tone impeccably balanced, though, and like all Bourgeois guitars this one has

(USED) 2012 John Allison Dreadnought, Adirondack Top, Sunburst – $2,695

(USED) John Allison earned his stripes as a builder and sunburst artist at Collings before starting his own family brand in Austin, TX.  He makes a variety of acoustic and electric instruments, and also does professional finish work for a number of other companies. This guitar is Allison’s take on the pre-war D18, an Adirondack-topped mahogany dreadnought with a beautiful

SOLD – (USED) 1999 Collings OM3BaA Cutaway, Brazilian, Adirondack – SOLD

(USED) Another blast from Collings’ past, here is a 1999 OM3 in Brazilian and Adirondack with the rare cutaway option!  We don’t see many Collings guitars this close to their 20th birthday (most players who own such an instrument will never part with it) and this one is special indeed. This is an OM3, so the appointments include bound neck

(USED) 1977 Thomas Reg’n 12-String, Sitka, Rosewood – $1,075

(USED, VINTAGE!) Here is a wildly-cool handmade 12-string guitar from German luthier Thomas Reg’n, whose work seems to be very rare indeed in this country.  It is very “70s” in every way, built like a tank and featuring bold appointments and a long open-book peghead. This guitar has a big, authoritative voice, and plays very nicely in both dropped and

(USED, MINT) Collings C10, Sitka, Walnut – $3,125

(USED, MINT) You know how we love the Collings C-10 model. It wears many hats and does everything well. So, when Collings told us he had “discovered” that Black walnut was an excellent tonewood for (smaller) guitars, we jumped on the bandwagon and ordered the basic C-10 model in Black walnut – because we care. Sure enough, the walnut adds
