(USED) Collings 0003MhG, German Top, Mahogany Back & Sides – $4,050

(USED) Just because a guitar has only 12 frets clear of the body, that doesn’t necessarily make it a *small* guitar. The 000 may be shallow in body depth, but the body itself is long, longer than a standard dreadnought. That means it’s a big-ish guitar, and thanks to the bridge and bracing positions resulting from the 12-fret construction, sounds

Pre-Owned – (USED) Bourgeois DS Custom – CUBAN Mahogany, Aged Tone Adirondack top – SOLD

Keeping it interesting!!! (USED) We are happy to present another outstanding guitar from our friend Dana Bourgeois.

(USED) 2006 John Walker Wise River (Slope D) – SOLD

(USED) We love when we get these. We are big fans! We present this very fine sounding Wise River model from John Walker.

(USED) Well-Bruised LEFT-HANDED Collings C-10 Custom Sunburst, DEEP-BODY! – $2,950

(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.

There are LOTS of deep scratches and gouges in the general picking area (and some that are a bit outside

This majestic D42 proves it, having opened up

(USED) Goodall TBRD Traditional Dreadnought, Brazilian Rosewood, Master Grade Adirondack spruce w/ K&K pickup – $7,950

(PRE-OWNED) – Back  in the good ole days, circa 2005, we handled quite a few of James Goodall’s guitars that were, at that time, being made in Hawaii. The guitars had island charm, compelling sound and masterful playability and workmanship. Many of our friends and customers thought Goodalls were the “ideal” guitar, one that took some “growing into” as it were for the complexity and lushness
