• You can't help but smile when you are playing a parlor-sized guitar with big sound that belies its size. You smile that much wider when it's a Collings. This brand new Baby 2H is the first time I've sampled Collings' smallest offering, and it is a wonder. Oh, Baby! Lifetime warranty and hardshell Collings case. Serial #31217 Collings sez:  "Our smallest model is a rarity among fractional size guitars: most listeners never guess that it's not a full-size instrument unless they see it being played. While lacking the deep bass of larger guitars the tone is remarkably balanced, with adequate volume for most applications. The Collings Baby is approximately a ¾ size version of our OM, 12 ½ inches wide in the lower bout with a 24 ⅛ inch scale, and the headstock and bridge are scaled to match. Sometimes the Baby is used as a travel guitar, but it often sees duty as a songwriter's tool, the guitar that's ready at a moment's notice and can be played while seated in any position." Here it is compared in size to my personal Martin D-41 Special dread.   Condition: New; Top: Select sitka spruce; Back and sides: East Indian rosewood; Neck: Mahogany, modified V "Baby" neck carve; Nut: 1 3/4; Width: 12 1/2; Depth: 3 15/16; Scale: 24 1/8; Binding: Ivoroid; Purfling: Herringbone; Rosette: ivoroid/tortoise/b-w; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course); List: $4525
  • Santa Cruz
    1929 00

    $7,200 $6,480
    Here's a brand new customized Santa Cruz 1929 00, with a full body sunburst, adirondack bracing, hot hide glue construction, cowboy rope purfling and rosette, 2 mm ivoroid fretboard dots and bone bridge and end pins. I love the warmth of small-bodied all-mahogany guitars; the 1929-00 from Santa Cruz is always a favorite here. Welcomed internationally as both timely and timeless, the 1929-00 has received sparkling reviews from the most prestigious publications in France, Germany, UK and the US.  This instrument’s design pays homage to the simple and elegant instruments made for players enduring the Great Depression of 1929. Vintage inspired appointments include scalloped bracing, a period correct script style logo done tastefully in Ivoroid and beautifully executed Ebony pyramid bridge.

Condition: New; Top: Mahogany; Back and sides: Mahogany; Neck: Mahogany,ebony fingerboard,; Nut: 1 3/4; Width: 14.375; Depth: 4; Scale: 24.75; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)
  • Here’s a brand new WL-12 with Collings' new aged finish option. The aged top incorporates some subtle checking to the finish, but no nicks or scratches you might associate with other reliced guitars. I love these maple Waterloos. The WL-12 is a new variation on the flagship WL-14 that brings together the elements of maple back and sides, vintage x-bracing, and 12-fret construction to create an entirely new Waterloo experience. By joining the neck to the body at the 12th fret, the bridge is positioned closer to the center of the lower bout, producing a rich and open tone with stronger low end response than you would typically expect from a parlor-sized guitar. Maple back and sides make for the perfect tonal compliment to the body design, adding focus, projection, and a pronounced front-end attack that is sure to inspire players of nearly any acoustic genre. As a standard, all WL-12 models feature a moderate oval-shaped neck profile with a fully adjustable truss rod, drop-in saddle, and a vintage “iced tea” sunburst finish. This is still a large neck compared to most guitars but not uncomfortable. Hardshell case included. Waterloos are made at the Collings facility in Austin, TX — “Waterloo” was the name of the village which eventually grew into Austin. With warranty and hardshell case. Condition: New; Top: Solid spruce; Back and sides: Solid mahogany; Neck: Mahogany, oval neck; Nut: 1 3/4; Width: 14 3/4; Depth: 4 1/4; Scale: 24 7/8 Binding: Ivoroid; Rosette: Ivoroid; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)
  • Here is a left-handed Waterloo by Collings WL-14, X-braced, sunburst, with Collings' new aged finish option and the optional smaller neck carve -- which is still a good sized neck. Collings quality with minimalist aesthetics, harkening back to vintage tone of the original Kalamazoo guitars. The aged top incorporates some subtle checking to the finish, but no nicks or scratches you might associate with other reliced guitars. The WL-14  “X” braced version retains tighter focus and balance across the tonal range. This guitar is in the sunburst finish with a tiger-striped pickguard, and is X-braced with an adjustable trussrod. The neck is a vintage inspired large carve with what Collings is calling a “strong V” -- I built this one with the optional smaller carve, which is still a large neck. Solid spruce tops, solid mahogany bodies, rosewood fretboards, 1.75 ebony nut, bone saddles, Golden Age Restoration tuners and a semi-gloss nitro finish. Light as the proverbial feather. Waterloos are made at the Collings facility in Austin, TX — “Waterloo” was the name of the village which eventually grew into Austin. With warranty and hardshell case.

  • Here's a brand new Huss and Dalton Road Edition dreadnought, sitka spruce top and East Indian rosewood back and sides. The Road Edition was conceived several years ago during an economic downturn ... basically, how to put a fine, handmade guitar out at price that was more approachable for the working musician, and how appropriate that this one has arrived today. This guitar is every bit a Huss and Dalton, made by the same fine folks in Staunton VA, but featuring simpler appointments. We have a solid sitka top and solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck, a rosewood fingerboard and a gloss finish on the top, matte finish on the back, sides and neck. Gotoh tuners, and a simple black TKL hardshell case. Huss dreads are cannons, and this one is no exception. A lot of guitar for the money.

  • Here's a  beautifully appointed Santa Cruz H13, with an Adirondack top, east Indian rosewood back and sides, Adirondack bracing with hot hide glue construction, bone bridge and end pins, Style 42 fingerboard inlays, a beautiful burst and Waverly tuners with ivoroid buttons. Santa Cruz's popular H13 is their take on Gibson's 1937 Nick Lucas model. A smaller guitar, but with a body depth approaching that of a much larger dreadnought, the H13 produces  volume and bass that belie its size, with tone to match. It features 13 frets clear of the body, and capitalizes upon the best attributes of a 12-fret's resonance and a 14-fret's access. The body fits perfectly in your lap, equally adept at strumming or fingerstyle. The unique bracing pattern is a hybrid of  scalloped and tapered braces. Gorgeous sunburst, slotted headstock, lifetime warranty and handsome Ameritage case. Condition: New; Top: Sitka spruce; Back and sides: EI rosewood; Neck: Mahogany, ebony fretboard,; Nut: 1 3/4; Width: 14.75; Depth: 4.875; Scale: 25.375; Binding: Ivoroid; Purfling: Herringbone; Rosette: Ivoroid b/w/b; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course); List: $7675  
  • Lowden
    F-22 cutaway

    $5,465 $4,920
    Here’s a new Lowden F-22 in mahogany with a red cedar top. The F is the mid sized Lowden, with the characteristic overtones, brilliant highs and endless sustain that Lowdens are known for.

  • Here's a beautiful Rick Turner Guitars Renaissance RS6 steel string electric acoustic. I ordered this one with a redwood top and a 1 3/4 nut. The guitar has some nicely figured mahogany back and sides, a western red cedar top, mahogany neck and an ipe (Brazilian walnut) fingerboard. If you play acoustic guitar live, you're familiar with the challenges of getting a natural acoustic tone amplified to stage volumes without being plagued by feedback. All the mics, preamps and EQs in the world are rarely up to dealing with a loud monitor pointing at your soundhole. The thinline RS6 is built like an acoustic but has a mahogany center block to resist feedback. A Turner Timberline bridge pickup feeds a full-spectrum signal to an 18-volt D-TAR preamp with graduated volume and tone controls. The preamp runs off two AA batteries, easily accessible via the back panel. I have tested this at loud monitor volumes and it works great straight into the board. Lindsey Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac) loves his Turner guitars and plays a Renaissance live. These guitars also sound great through a conventional guitar amp. With locking tuners, Access padded case and Timberline electronics. Condition: New; Top: Redwood; Back and sides: Mahogany; Neck: Mahogany with ipe (brazilian walnut) fingerboard; Nut: 1 3/4; Scale: 25.5; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course); List: $2865

  • Santa Cruz makes a terrific OM, and this deep body custom version has pulled out all the stops.  One of the finest I've played. Very alive, great note separation, terrific balance with a little extra low end and, of course, impeccable build quality. This guitar features a beautiful Italian bearclaw spruce top, spectacular cocobolo back and sides (cocobolo is one of my favorite woods for an acoustic), Adirondack bracing, hot hide glue, cocobolo rosette, scalloped bracing, ebony fretboard, nickel Waverleys with ebony buttons, a koa bound headstock and neck and a 1.75 nut. Light for a cocobolo guitar, just a smidge over 4.25 pounds. Lifetime warranty and handsome Santa Cruz case by Ameritage.

  • Here’s a gorgeous lefty Santa Cruz D-12 Custom guitar with a non-slotted headstock. Light as a feather and incredibly alive guitar. Legendary artist and first call session ace, Norman Blake, has long appreciated the power and sensitivity of the original dreadnought design with 12 frets clear of the body. SCGC’s prototype D-12 Model was commissioned to showcase Norman’s playing style by adding clarity and sustain for an articulate response to the flat pick. Building a guitar with 12 frets clear of the body creates more air volume, which allows greater amplitude and sustain. The hand tuned X-bracing insures increased bass response, while the top voicing and 4-1/4 inch sound hole size combine to achieve great presence in all ranges. This eliminates the tendency of the traditional dreadnought towards boominess at the expense of midrange and treble. The controlled integrity of Mahogany sides and back impart clarity and definition to the guitar’s complex acoustic presence. The D-12’s sheer volume, complexity and incredible sustain make it a truly inspiring stage partner. Lifetime warranty and Ameritage hardshell case.

  • This left handed Carter-Poulsen G-Model is a stunning guitar with superb tone. Hand built in Santa Cruz by Willie Carter and Eric Poulsen, this guitar features beautiful east Indian rosewood with a terrific bearclaw sitka spruce top. The dark rosewood is set off elegantly and subtly with red pernambuco binding and sycamore purfling, which imparts beautiful sparkling golden detail lines. The rosette is sycamore, as well. The shape is Carter-Poulsen’s take on a 14-fret 00 size, but with an innovative horizontal tone bar that transverses the lateral bracing. The guitar has great bass response, a pleasing midrange and crisp, clear trebles. Very comfortable neck and a short 24.9 scale. Remarkable guitar for recording. Carter-Poulsen guitars are gaining a strong following both domestically and internationally, and one strum will tell you why. Both Willie and Eric have their roots in the Santa Cruz Guitar Company.  With a custom Ameritage Carter-Poulsen hardshell case.
