Eastman MD-915 Mandolin

Gibson RB-6 Checkerboard

Photo for Ad 127045

I bought this Gibson RB6 for my collection in 11/18/2004. I have had many custom Banjos and at Seventy one, I do not need them all. This is the last one left, that I have for sale.

This is a Gibson, Style 6 Checkerboard, was made in 2004. SN/ 6041004

This is a one of a kind, RB6, as you can see using a very tight grain wood, in the neck and resonator, almost one on top of the other. It was special order.

The production RB6 is about HALF of that grains thickness, and are all a like as close as possible. It would be easy to compare with Production RB6's found in the Net.

Gibson necks are made by First Quality Music, and that is where I got it from after, First Quality talked Gibson Company into it, as they wanted all the RB6's the same.

It has a Shubb 5th String, 8" Long, Sliding, Gold Plated Capo.

It also has a set of Gold Plated, Keith, "D" Tuners for the 2nd, and 3rd Strings, and it has the Original Tuners with it also, with the Original tail piece.

I think the Gold Plate on the RB6 is 18K? It is all Hand Engraved.

The price is 7,500.00.

As far as I know, they have not made this Model for about 10 years, it would be easy to check out.

These Gibson RB6's will keep going up in price, as there are not many of them, and surely, none has wood like this one!

There are NO scratches dings, or dents. Estimate, has been played about, 5 hours.

This is NOT a reproduction that Gibson has made. It is a continuation of original serial numbers from 1928 to 1934. Only difference is a much higher Quality.

Jethro Burns Legacy Hi-Def Edition Vol. 1

Photo for Ad 127044

Kenneth "Jethro" Burns was the greatest exponent of mandolin jazz and a true pioneer of American string music. Throughout his 50-year career, as half of the renowned musical comedy duo, Homer & Jethro and later as a soloist, he re-invented the way the mandolin is played.

In 1987, after learning he had cancer, Jethro set out to document a lifetime of his favorite music. During four informal basement sessions, Jethro and his protoge' Don Stiernberg recorded 50 tunes, many of which were released on two Acoustic Disc CDs in the 1990s.

We are proud to present these historic recordings in their entirety - 62 tracks including 13 previously unissued songs and 12 alternate takes, re-mastered in the high-definition (24-bit, 96 khz) format.

Photo for Ad 127043

Forty-five years ago on a monday night, a bluegrass band walked on to the stage of The Boarding House in San Francisco. The band included two of Bill Monroe's former Blue Grass Boys, guitarist Peter Rowan and fiddle virtuoso Vassar Clements, mandolinist David Grisman and Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead picking banjo along with his bass playing sidekick, John Kahn.

WA week later the same group played there again and recorded what would become one of the most influential albums in Bluegrass history - Old & in the Way. Now forty years later, both shows are being released as High Definition (24 bit, 96 khz) downloads on Grisman's This will be the first release of the complete shows by this unique ensemble and includes 55 tracks, 14 of which have never been released in any format.

For the past three years Acoustic Oasis has been Grisman's pet project with many "Deluxe" releases in high definition with much previously unreleased gems from his extensive archives. Old & In The Way - The Complete Boarding House Shows is due for release on the fortieth anniversary - October 1st, 2013.

1995 Flatiron Festival F

Photo for Ad 127041

This is a well cared for Flatiron from the days of Bruce Weber. It has recently been refretted and has been very well set up. It plays fast and LOUD. I purchased it about 3 years ago from Tejon Music and have palyed it at home and in some jams. The humidity in the room where it is housed has been well controlled. There are some dings and some wear, but it is from 1995. I would like to sell it for $2100 now. Plenty of pictures if desired.

For Sale: Nice 2005 Weber Bitterroot

Photo for Ad 127040

Excellent condition. This mandolin will give you that good bluegrass sound. Rich chocolate brown lacquer finish. Unlike the earlier Bitterroot series, this mandolin has heavily flamed maple back sides and neck. Many of the early Bitterroots were made with mahogany back and sides. It has a gloss finish, a solid carved spruce top which gives it a warm cut and chop, traditional tone bar bracing, top bound only, rounded V profile neck, nickle Schaller tuners with pearl buttons, Weber one piece cast tailpiece, pearl peghead inlay and Weber logo, and an ebony Weber Brekke bridge. Has an unbound flat fretboard with 1 1/8 inch nut, pearl diamond fretboard position markers, jumbo frets, and no treble extension which eliminates pick click. Its a loud mandolin with good chop and a very warm woody tone. Weber hardshell case is included. Mandolin was setup by luthier Richie Dotson of Acoustic Box LLC in Chesterfield, VA. Very clean mandolin showing only a few nicks and dings from playing. Label signed by Bruce Weber who built a lot of fine Gibsons and Flatirons there in Montana. Price is $2100 with a donation to the Cafe upon the sale. PayPal and shipping included in the price.

1946 C. F. Martin D-28 Herringbone Flat Top Acoustic Guitar

Photo for Ad 127036

C. F. Martin D-28 Herringbone Model Flat Top Acoustic Guitar (1946), made in Nazareth, PA, serial # 96265, natural lacquer finish, Brazilian rosewood back and sides, spruce top; mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, brown hard shell case.

Among guitar connoisseurs, the word "Herringbone" has a special meaning. It refers not just to a specific type of wood top trim used by C.F. Martin, but to one guitar in particular -- the 1934 - 1947 D-28 Dreadnought, one of the most revered of all classic American guitars. Bluegrass players will play virtually no other instrument than a D-28 of close copy, and the model is one of the mainstays of virtually any acoustic flat-picking or rhythm stylist.

This is a relatively late example of a "bone" from mid-1946, built just as the nation (and the guitar market) was gearing up for a post-war boom period. Despite competitive efforts from Gibson, Martin's D-28 Dreadnought was widely considered unquestionably the best large-body flat-top available when new and remains a superlative instrument for both wholly acoustic folk or bluegrass and the emerging and honky tonk style with electric instruments in the mix.

Martin's instruments changed quite a bit in this period and 1946 was a transitional year; this D-28 has the classic period appointments. It features beautiful Brazilian rosewood back and sides with a nice, even, straight grain pattern with some typical darkening from the wood's oils leaching into the finish on the upper quarters. In organized Teutonic fashion, Martin preferred very straight-grained woods in the 1940s; the modern fascination with dynamic figuring would have been dismissed at the time as frivolous at the Nazareth factory.

The tight and very even-grained spruce top on this guitar also shows Martin's dedication to the finest and most consistent of tone woods; by the end of WWII, spruce was in very short supply, yet the company's best guitars still feature exquisite tops. The Sitka spruce used on this guitar was sourced from Alaska; the supply of Appalachian spruce used previously had been decimated by the wartime needs of the aircraft industry and was no longer available in the quantities required.

In the middle of 1944 Martin's craftsmen stopped using the original scalloped X-brace pattern on these instruments, reportedly due to the failure rate of tops in the field with the heavy gauge strings common at the time. This 1946 guitar is still built and braced more lightly than examples from a few years later on. The earlier delicate small pearl diamond-shaped fingerboard inlays had also recently been changed to larger pearl dots, and these instantly identify the guitars of this particular period. The herringbone wood trim is bordered by a layer of ivory celluloid among the top, and the back is triple-bound with a chain pattern backstrip. Other typical features include the long-saddle ebony bridge, tortoise pattern Celluloid pickguard, and pre-war style openback Waverly tuners.

Within less than a year of this guitar being built, the use of the lovely herringbone wood trim came to an end; it had been sourced from Germany, and when the company's supply was used up, there was simply no more to be had. The D-28 stood at the top of the post-war Martin line, but the top was simply bound in celluloid. The "bones" of this just post-war period are superlative guitars, and while often not quite as responsive as their scallop-braced predecessors, they have a huge and sometimes slightly more focused tone. This splendid example is a joy to play, and excels at practically any style of picking one cares to attempt!

Overall length is 41 in. (104.1 cm.), 15 3/4 in. (40 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 5 in. (12.7 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 25 1/2 in. (648 mm.). Width of nut is 1 11/16 in. (43 mm.). Overall length is 41 in. (104.1 cm.), 15 3/4 in. (40 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 5 in. (12.7 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 25 1/2 in. (648 mm.). Width of nut is 1 11/16 in. (43 mm.).

This is a very fine playing and sounding D-28, with plenty of volume and a somewhat brighter, more penetrating sound than some from this period without losing the depth these are famous for. It has recently been refurbished with a neck reset and refret, but remains all original apart from this.

The original lacquer finish has no overspray or touch-up and shows its age with some typical checking, small dings, surface scratches, and compression marks. There is some pickwear on both sides of the sound hole, with one fairly concentrated spot above the upper back edge of the sound hole that goes through the finish. There are some fairly deep scratches on the back and the finish is worn off the spine of the neck.

Amazingly there are no cracks anywhere, and this guitar, though well-played, must also have been well-cared for. Old D-28s from this period are real workhorse guitars; they were rarely coddled and often show the signs of very heavy use. This guitar wears its scars proudly, and remains not only a great piece of 20th century guitar history and artistry but an exceptionally fine player's instrument. It arrived with a somewhat worn period 16" hard shell case not specific to Martin, but one that appears to have been with the guitar since new. Excellent - Condition. Excellent - Condition.


C. F. Martin 0-42 Flat Top Acoustic Guitar (1929)

Photo for Ad 127035

C. F. Martin 0-42 Model Flat Top Acoustic Guitar (1929), made in Nazareth, PA, serial # 39862, natural lacquer finish, spruce top, Brazillian rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard, black hard shell case.

In the pantheon of the world's greatest guitars the pearl-trimmed, 12-fret steel strung Martins of the late 1920s are well-represented, to say the least. In the late 1920s just before Martin altered nearly all their designs to the 14-fret neck "Orchestra Model" pattern, the company crafted a small number of their highest grade Style 42 and 45 instruments braced for steel strings instead of the gut used previously. This 1929 0-42 is one of just 25 made that year, when this lovely pearl of a guitar sold for $105.00, which seems like a bargain even calculated in period money!

The Style 42 was built of the finest materials Martin had available: superb straight-grained Brazilian rosewood, the tightest-grained Appalachian spruce for the top, and extravagant green-and-pinkish hued abalone for the border inlay. The size 0 was by this point the smallest of three models offered at the top quality level, and even though produced in the largest quantity of the three, it is still a very rare guitar.

The pearl-trimmed Martins were never made in large batches, and it would be very unusual for any but the largest dealer to order more than one at a time, or even hold one in stock. Mostly they were built to order, and even in the opulent times of the late 1920s there were not a lot of guitar players that could afford one! This one has seen a lot of use but remains a wonderful playing and sounding instrument, a testament to its builder's skill and reputation and as fine a 12-fret 0-sized model as could be made.

Overall length is 38 in. (96.5 cm.), 13 5/8 in. (34.6 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 4 1/4 in. (10.8 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 24 3/4 in. (629 mm.). Width of nut is 1 7/8 in. (48 mm.).

This guitar is in extremely fine playing condition, but well-used with a number of repairs both old and recent. The neck has been neatly reset and the fingerboard is a perfect replica fitted with the correct bar frets and using the original shaped pearl inlay. The original thin scalloped X-bracing on the top has been carefully reglued, with only the single long brace just under the fingerboard extension replaced with a replica brace.

The top shows several old crack repairs behind the bridge, with one long splice on the center seam. There are a couple of small tight grain cracks on the top in the upper bass bout area. The bridge and bridgeplate are original and have been reglued over time; the bridge was lowered just a touch long ago and has a newer saddle.

The guitar shows dents, scrapes, and wear to the finish overall -- most notably to the top under the sound hole -- but remains in nicely original condition with no oversprayed finish or added elements like a pickguard. There is some slight disturbance around the bridge from being reglued, but no large loss or pulled-up spruce. The back of the neck is worn down to the wood over much of its length and feels perfectly played-in. A superb guitar to play, and a wonderful and rare old Martin from the perfect year for the 12-fret top-end guitars. Excellent - Condition.

This is a beautiful Mandolin that I purchased in Feb 2016. It is shown on the facebook page of Edwardburgessaccoustics in a post on Jan 8 2016.
This is a great sounding very well balanced, loud and easy to play mando that hasn't had much use. There is a slight chip on the nut by one of the G strings that doesn't effect the sound. I also changed the tail piece. Comes with a nice case in great condition as well.
This solid player is priced at $650.00 plus shipping. I'm offering a 48 hour return period. Buyer pays return shipping.

Brazilian Choro: A Method For Mandolin And Bandolim

Photo for Ad 127028

Brazilian Choro: A Method for Mandolin focuses on teaching "bandolim" technique for playing Choro. The combination of method book and audio offers a great opportunity to add performance practice to the black-and-white notes on the page. The book, presented in both English and Portuguese, is written for two different groups--Brazilians learning to play bandolim in the Choro tradition, and non-Brazilians who play other styles and want to learn Choro. Mr. Sa, a native Carioca who as played Choro since childhood, understands Choro intuitively and brings a Brazilian perspective to the project. Ms. Mair, a classical mandolinist who has spent much of the past four years refining her Choro technique in Rio, brings an outsider's viewpoint, recognizing the subtle distinctions that make Choro style unique. Together these renowned performers and university professors have created a pathway to help you play Choro with a true Carioca accent. Music presented in standard notation. Includes access to online audio.

2016 Deering Eagle II

Photo for Ad 127025

2016 Deering Eagle 2 in excellent condition. This banjo features the innovative "twenty ten" tone ring, designed by Jens Kruger and Greg Deering. It has a wonderful voice with a stronger midrange than most resonator banjos. It's plenty powerful enough for bluegrass but has a sweetness to the tone that would sound wonderful played clawhammer style. This one has been upgraded with an attractive wooden Ome armrest and bridge (originals are in the case). Comes with it's original deluxe Deering archtop case, also in excellent condition.

Seagull Parlor/Travel Guitar

2001 Elizabeth Cotten 00-18 For Sale Or Trade

Photo for Ad 127022

Here's a nice example of a sweet little 00-18 that has a repaired crack at the waist on the treble rim. No cleats, and it is stable, but not the highest level of work. Please write for a full battery of pics. Measures about 5 inches, but each end is super tight and not visible. In the middle you can see it better and a small piece of mahogany that must have chipped off in the repair is evident where it was re-glued. Therefore, I'm discounting it substantially. The rest of the guitar is in excellent condition with no other cracks or repairs. Neck angle is excellent with nice break over the saddle. Frets show minimal wear in the first position on the unwound strings. Strap button installed at the correct spot on the neck heel. She's in fine playing shape in the original case that's in great shape.

Low book on these is $2K, and I'll offer it here for $1,500.00 plus shipping. PayPal is fine. But, I'm also thinking it might be fun to entertain trade scenarios. Got something you're wanting to move in a commensurate price range? I'm open to any six string acoustic. Could also consider cash one way or the other depending on the piece.

Let's see what happens.

Hi, I'd like to find a set of these in silver or nickel plate that have the tuner buttons held on by a screw, similar to the Waverlys.
I seem to remember at some point in the past seeing some but i don't recall where...

Thank you

Photo for Ad 127019

This used Collings 2006 MF GT is wonderful deal on a used Mando that certainly has been played.

This instrument has a custom aftermarket inlay work done on the headstock, as well as plenty of nicks, dings and scratches throughout. All that playwear though has contributed to making this Mandolin sound very open and responsive. Moderate fretwear as well. Includes a hardshell case.

1930s Kay Strad-O-Lin Mandolin

Photo for Ad 127018

(No serial number) Good entry level vintage instrument. I think this is 1930s production based on the logo, the tuners and the plastic body binding. I also confirmed this with a known 1930s instrument, and the logos are identical. Structurally fine with a maple back and spruce top. Has the original see through pickguard. The reset of the hardware and finish also look original. Frets are good and the mandolin has just been set up so it plays nicely. Very good sound. Its not a Gibson F5 but its still a good sounding mandolin. Here is a link to a video of the mandolin as played by by Richie Dotson here in Richmond - Has a more modern cardboard case. ....USD $600

Gibson TB-3 Mastertone Conversion With Steve Huber Tone Ring

Photo for Ad 127017

Gibson TB-3 Mastertone Conversion with Steve Huber Tone Ring Model 5 String Resonator Banjo (1926), made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, serial # 8226-45, dark mahogany lacquer finish, laminated maple resonator, laminated maple rim; maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, black hard shell case.

This is a very fine and interesting 1920s Gibson Mastertone conversion to 5-string banjo, with an original 1926 TB-3 rim fitted with a very finely made older replica 5-string neck and a special flathead conversion tone ring by the maestro of these, Steve Huber. As all-original Gibson Mastertone 5-string banjos from this period are almost unobtainable, nearly all examples in use today are similarly converted from Tenor or Plectrum.

The Mastertone TB-3 was Gibson's baseline professional tenor banjo, but still a medium/fancy instrument and considered a Gibson working musician's classic. The model was the lowest grade banjo with the full Mastertone flange, resonator, and tone ring hardware package; the original resonator is bound on the bottom edge but otherwise plain. The 1926 tone ring was originally the arch-top ball bearing style, coupled with the 2-piece tube-and-plate flange in use at the time.

This banjo has been fitted with the special Huber flathead conversion tone ring that does not require cutting the rim, which brings the sound into the classic Bluegrass realm. While the combination of this flathead ring with the two-piece flange is not absolutely the Bluegrass standard, it still makes for a very fine-sounding instrument at a price only a small fraction of what an original flat-head, one-piece flange Mastertone rim alone would command.

The maple neck is similar in style to what a period RB-3 would have carried, but with a slightly longer 27" scale. The original TB-3 used a mahogany neck, and the combination of the long scale and harder maple construction definitely add to the power of this instrument's sound. The fingerboard and headstock face have a notched diamond pearl inlay similar to the original, with a larger "Mastertone" block with slightly oversized lettering at the bottom end. The two lower tuners are 5-Star Planets with composite buttons, while the upper two are cammed modern Scruggs pegs. The tailpiece is a 5-string replica of the original Presto style.

The workmanship on the neck is very fine if not exactly to original Gibson spec. We don't know who made it, but it is to a higher standard than some we have seen! The original tenor neck is included, as is the tailpiece and original arch-top tone ring, still housed in the labeled box Mr. Huber shipped the rim in. This package makes for a wonderful collection documenting some of this banjo's history, from birth as a jazz 4-string to its current incarnation as a bluegrass powerhouse.

Overall length is 37 3/4 in. (95.9 cm.), 11 in. (27.9 cm.) diameter head, and 3 3/4 in. (9.5 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 27 in. (686 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/4 in. (32 mm.).

This banjo is in excellent playing condition overall, with some typical finish wear to the resonator and back of the neck. The lacquer in both areas shows numerous small scuffs and dings, but no major loss. The chrome plating on the rim hardware is largely intact, with some small areas of dirt and wear but no major loss. The bolts to mount the resonator have been replaced by small screws.

The neck finish shows an area of small dings and chips to the finish on the back around the 7th-10th fret area, and the heavily yellowed lacquer on the binding is worn off in a number of spots. The lacquer on the headstock face is similarly yellowed and chipped off in spots.

There are railroad spikes in the fingerboard at positions 7 and 9, and a filled hole from a previous spike at fret 10. There is a small piece of rosewood chipped off the treble side of the fingerboard at the rim joint, and an equally small piece of binding missing on the bass side.

Overall a really great-sounding and playing banjo; one of the nicest tube-and-plate conversions we have handled. The tone is rich and full but still with the bluegrass "ring" Mastertones are so sought after for. Includes a more recent HSC and the original Tenor neck and tailpiece, along with the dismounted original archtop tone ring. A unique conversion and a very fine player's instrument. Excellent Condition.
