(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, 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.

(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) There are few things in life as enjoyable as these very sophisticated small Collings guitars.
