(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 – $3,475

(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) Bourgeois Aged Tone OM, Adirondack Spruce, Madagascar Rosewood – $5,295

(USED) Just arrived on consignment, an early Aged Tone OM from Bourgeois. Dana and Co. changed everything in the guitar world a few years back when they introduced tonewood torrefaction in their high end acoustics. The process thermally treats the wood to cook out the sugars, pitch and other volatiles right at the beginning, crystalizing the resins and making the

(USED, MINT) Bourgeois Vintage D, Peruvian Rosewood, Hide Glue – $4,450

(USED, MINT) Dana Bourgeois knows wood. While we are all feverishly hunting for the heir apparent to the all-but-unobtainable Brazilian Rosewood, Dana Bourgeois is quietly leading us into the next Golden Era of guitar construction with new tonewoods and new technologies. The first two of these sold before we were able to list them. We are thrilled, then, to offer

(USED, MINT) Collings OM2H Deep Body, Sitka, Indian Rosewood – SOLD

(USED, MINT) The comfort of an OM, but with added volume and bass response like a dreadnought… the deep-body Orchestra Model from Collings has been incredibly popular over the years.  This is a pretty bare-bones example, with a lovely Sitka spruce top and chocolaty Indian rosewood back and sides. The body depth is increased by almost 3/4″ vs a traditional

(USED) 1977 Thomas Reg’n 12-String, Sitka, Rosewood – $1,250

(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 – $3,275

(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

(USED, MINT) Collings 002HA, Adirondack, Rosewood – $4,250

(USED, MINT) Here is another beautiful and sophisticated Collings 002H. The classic 12-fret 00 ornamented by herringbone purfling and topped by the Holy Grail of tonewoods, Ye Olde Adirondack spruce. Looking like something from a previous century, the guitar features the “olde” standard 1 and 13/16″ nut width, 2 and 5/16″ saddle spacing, pyramid bridge, slotted headstock, and open back

(USED, MINT) Collings 02HG 12-String, German Spruce, Rosewood – $4,475

(USED, MINT)  The Collings 12-string guitar. That’s right. 12 strings. As you can imagine, it is the BEST playing 12-string we have ever laid fingers on. We knew something was special when the first of these guitars arrived (after 3 days in a UPS truck – after traveling 1470 miles from Austin to Pittsburgh) tuned to concert pitch and PERFECTLY

(USED, MINT) Collings 01 14-Fret, All Mahogany – SOLD

(USED, MINT) There are few things in life as enjoyable as these very sophisticated small Collings guitars. While one might expect these guitars to sound “small”, we find that everyone is surprised by their volume and their immense practicality as a “travel” instrument, as a couch instrument, a recording instrument and in many cases – a full replacement for a

(USED) 1999 Collings OM3, Sitka, East Indian Rosewood – $3,150

(USED) A well loved Orchestra Model that left the Collings shop in August of 1999, this wonderful guitar has been very well taken care of.  Hardly any fret wear and just a few superficial dings, this instrument is in exceptional condition for its age, and the best part is that it’s completely opened up and sounds GREAT! The only structural

(USED) 2014 Collings D2H BrA VN, Brazilian Rosewood, Adirondack, Vintage Now Neck – $7,950

(USED, EX+++) What a pleasure it is to be able to offer this fairly recent Collings dreadnought with to-die-for, perfectly quartered old-growth BRAZILIAN rosewood back and sides!  This is certainly one of the last Braz guitars to leave the Collings shop, and who knows how long they were saving this very special set of wood… if we were back in
