Collings MT2V (Adirondack/Birdseye)

Photo for Ad 107980

Up for sale is a like-new Collings MT2V mandolin. I made a video demo in which I play some examples and talk about the instrument:

http://youtu.be/mmyiM1KyMSI

This is definitely the best Collings mandolin I’ve ever played! Adirondack spruce top, Birdseye maple back and sides, varnish finish, tortoise binding, dark sunburst, pickguard, radiused fretboard. The bone nut is 1 3/16” wide, which is a little wider than the traditional nut width but easier on the right hand (for me at least) for cross-picking, etc. It has a couple nicks and dings, including some pickwear on the pickguard and a slight blemish on the headstock from where a clip-on tuner was mounted. But overall, it’s in EXC+ condition.

I got this mandolin brand new a couple months ago after selling my old F-5. It was always intended to be an interim mandolin (since I still prefer the F-5 model), but I needed a workhorse to help me through some important gigs. I have my eye on an F-5 now, which is why I’m selling this, but I strongly considered keeping it. I used it on the Grammys, at the Grand Ole Opry, in Scotland, and at a few other gigs around the U.S.

Asking $4,900. Comes with black TKL hardshell case and dark brown leather strap. Not interested in trades for this one. Thanks!

Gibson Catalog "L", 1921

Photo for Ad 107977

This 112 page catalog (more like a book) shows some fading and wear - though minor. This is one of the better examples I have seen.

An interesting excursion into the early 1920's era instruments, marketing and history of an iconic American instrument manufacturer.

Price List (1921) and Order Form included.

Asking: $550 - PayPal okay. Donation to The Cafe when sold.

Thanks for looking.

In addition to selling my Monte, I am selling my Gilchrist F5 that I got from Steve through Carmel Music directly. I have owned 3 Gil's, sold 2 and kept this one as the best sounding one. It is tone bar braced. There are no cracks or repairs. The finish is aged and the fret wear in minimal. It has been a keeper for me but for a L--- acquisition that requires me to sell the Gil-with mucho regret. Priced to sell at $19,000. Photos upon request.

Traditional Bluegrass Video Lessons With Chris Henry

Photo for Ad 107974

Study traditional bluegrass mandolin from an acknowledged master at Mandolins Heal The World.

Chris Henry has certainly done his homework on Monroe style mandolin playing and is considered one of the top Monroe style players on the scene today. Chris also grew up making instructional videos for "The Murphy Method", a family business focused on teaching bluegrass music by ear. His video lessons therefor do not include any notation or tablature. If you are new to this way of learning, I encourage you to give it a try, even though it may seem harder at first. Listen carefully and watch his hands, then simply try to imitate what you see and hear on the screen.

Want to check out the materials before you purchase? Visiting Chris' bluegrass instructor page at Mandolins Heal The World and listen before deciding.

Subscriptions to full access at Mandolins Heal The World are $250 per year or $25/month.

1967 Eb-3 Gibson Bass Guitar

Photo for Ad 107971

Faded Cherry Red finish with some play time having wear all over, most notably a small ding on the head stock. It is a cool bass just like the one Jack Bruce played w/Clapton during the Cream days, all original, with the original hard case.

The EB-3, based on an earlier model, the EB-0, is one of the bass guitar equivalents of the popular Gibson SG. It features a slim SG-style body, a short 30.5″ scale 1-piece mahogany neck, small pickguard, witch hat knobs, and two pickups; a large humbucking pickup in the neck position and a mini-humbucker pickup in the bridge position.

The electronics consist of a four-way rotary pickup selector switch (for Series 1 basses; neck pickup with midrange notch, bridge, bridge and neck with low end rolled off neck pickup, neck pickup with choke) and volume and tone knobs for each pickup.

The EB-3 was discontinued in 1979.

One Thousand & One Banjos - The Tsumura Collection, Mint

Photo for Ad 107970

This 18 pound tome needs a bookstand to appreciate it, and a bib to prevent you from drooling on the pages. It has 3000 exquisite art photographs of banjos covering their entire history from the most primitive through the most modern. Although there is wonderful coverage of S.S.Stewart presentation 5-strings and other classic open back 5-strings, the bulk of the book is 4-string banjos, Tsumura's favorite. Almost every notable brand and model is gloriously represented. The one time production of 2,500 books are frozen in the relatively small world of banjo fans. When a copy does become available, it commands four figures. But why so much? Besides a high demand for a small supply, the book is extremely well constructed. Paper quality, binding and presentation set the book at the center of any collection. Akira Tsumura shows readers banjos that can be found no where else. According to the winter 2009 edition of the Fretboard Journal, Akira Tsumura spent $3.8 million to have the books made. This works out to an original cost to produce these books was $1,520 for each copy.

Not to be confused with the older, smaller "Banjos: The Tsumura Collection" (commonly known in the banjo community as "the Red book” published in 1984) with smaller photographs of his much smaller collection at that time, or the book titled "Banjo: The Tsumura Collection (1920-1940)." This book was self-published in 1993 and sometimes referred to as "the brown book.”

Simply put "One Thousand and One Banjos: The Tsumura Collection" is the greatest banjo book in existence. Dead mint original shipping box. $1,150.
Free shipping via FedEx ground. Returns allowed money back minus $75 to cover my free shipping and handling. 48 hrs approval. PayPal fees split between buyer and seller, no checks, wire transfer ok.

Silverangel A Style 2013

I have on trade a real nice A made in 2013. It has an old red spruce top and beautiful curly maple throughout. This mandolin is well broken in and is in very good condition. Radius fretboard with a nut width of slightly under 1 3/16ths. The sound is powerful, much volume with plenty of mids which carry through in a band. Plenty of lows as well. It comes with a nice hard case. I have more pics upon request. Two day trial of course. If returned buyer pays return shipping. I will pay to ship it to you. But, I don't think you will want to return it. Plays easy. Price is $1350 shipped.

Since receiving my 'newest' Collings "Custom"0001 IndianGermanSSSB; I've found that it & my 0002H-A to be very similar "sonically" speaking. They are both incredibly responsive, finger style machines. Needing only the lightest touch to bring them to life!

The main difference between the 0001 'German' & this 0002H-A is volume. This 0002H-A Definitely has more volume than my new German topped version. I don't know if it's a "Adi vs German" thing? Or the age difference. (7 years of playing), or what(?) But the 0002H-A definitely projects better. (At this point on time at least.....)

I had always thought that my 0002H-A would be a "Lifetime" guitar. It's that great! However, with it being so close to in sound to my 0001-IGSSSB; I'm now considering selling my 000-2HA

It has a a fantastic sounding, clear & wide grained Adirondack Spruce sound board & a beautiful "Exotic Style" Brazilian headstock overlay as well.

Upgraded to bone & abalone dot bridge pins,(Stock ebony pins will be in the case for you). I have also added Waverly Gold & Snakewood button tuners, which are the perfect compliment to the Brazilian headstock overlay.

Action is spot on & the guitar plays & sounds like Dream!

The 000 series Collings are the perfect "In between" guitars as they have a more comfortable 'feel' than their bigger DS & D series guitars. Yet although they feel more like the smaller OM's; they possess a deeper bottom end thanks to their slightly longer bodies. Nice tight bass & incredibly lyrical trebles. Due in no small part to this wonderful Adirondack Spruce top I'm sure.

There are a couple of very very minor dings & scratches that I'll try to photograph & add here later. Nothing major at all, but 'Full Disclosure" of course...

Why pay extra the $$$ when you can own this gently played in & 'no issues' instrument?

Asking $3800.00 + S&H

Northfield Big Mon F5 Engelmann Spruce Top - UK

Photo for Ad 107952

Big Mon with Engelmann Spruce top, violin varnish neck, engraved Bill James tailpiece. This one comes with the Airloom case at no extra charge - see photos - it would normally add £250.

I sold eight Big Mon's in 2016. I have only been allocated four for 2017 and the next one is spoken for, so the next arrival will be next July.

The Northfield Big Mon has been creating quite a stir. It has a big fat tone with fantastic volume and projection. Created as the ideal bluegrass hoss (or cannon if you prefer) it has an amazing chop and great depth and richness of tone to take on pretty well any style, with great responsiveness from the lightest touch to the heaviest attack with a thick pick it is fantastic for all types of playing.

From the Northfield website. "Our "Big Mon" Mandolin is something we created in our shop. In an effort to try and create a little more mid range and bass response, with a nice airy sound, we developed this model to have a distinct voice. Here's what we did..

The "Big Mon" body style is just slightly different than the standard size. We've increased the width of the body, at its widest point, by 5mm. We've also adjusted the depth/width of the sides a little in a few places. Everything is in proportion to this change, so it results in a slightly larger body overall. It's not very noticeable unless you compare it directly to another standard size by lining them up back to back."

£4,795.00

Up for sale is a really cool unique bass, crafted in Indonesia and finished in Chicago. Mahogany body and a fast comfortable jazz style neck, custom chi sonic humbuckers. The original chi sonic single coils will be included with the bass, it's very versatile, it can do a good precision tone with just the neck pickup and the bridge pickup gives it a sort of jazz bass on steroids kind of sound. It's got some Ghs flat wounds on it about 6 months old. It's Been gigged once and has only left the house aside from that twice. It's in fantastic condition and a unique and beautiful instrument. Comes with gig bag, buyer pays shipping thanks for looking
