C1920 SILVESTRIE ITALIAN GUITAR$795.00
c1920 Silvestrie Italian guitar features carved back wooden inlayed soundboard. Good original condition with no repairs or restoration. The tail piece has been replaced but I have the original. Silvestri comes from a long line of Catania guitar and mandolin makers in Sicily. Great for playing European folk music or even Django tunes.
1944 MARTIN D-18$26,500.00
The blueprint for the 20th-century steel string guitar featuring the magic combination of scalloped X braced Adirondack top and 1 11/16 neck width. Serial number 88209 left the Martin factory on the 7 of June 1944. Due to wartime restrictions this guitar was made with an ebony truss rod giving the guitar a beautiful balance weighing in at only 3.84 lbs.
The guitar is in great original condition, it has a small repaired crack from the pickguard to the bridge and a small repair and crack on the sides that were attended to many years ago. The tuners have been replaced and it ships in a modern case. TJ Thompson recently set the guitar up with a compression fret reset and replacement bridge he also commented that the bridge plate is original and he didn’t think it’s ever had a neck reset. I have 12 to 53 on the guitar at the moment but it can be safely strung with mediums. If you’re after a killer D-18 old woody’s your gal.

Condition: The bridge has a repaired crack, the centre seam has also been professionally repaired, their are a couple of well repaired cracks on the back and some capo ware on the back of the neck.

1948 GIBSON L-12 PREMIER
So you want a guitar that sounds and plays as well as an old Gibson L-5 Premier ( one of the first cut-a-way jazz guitars) without spending well over $20,000, Then look no further. This beautiful old Gibson has the tone and playability at a fraction of the cost, true it only has a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard not the Ebony board of an L5 but the carved spruce top and quilted Maple back and sides are as good as it gets.
This guitar has been owned by a player, the tuners and nut have been replaced and a lace sensor pick up has been tastefully fitted, ( original pickguard is in the case). There is one repaired hair line crack on the top and a few scuff marks but overall a nice original L-12.
