2013 Gibson Lg-2 American Eagle

Photo for Ad 115617

2013 Gibson LG-2 in virtually new condition. Great little 00 sized guitar with X bracing to give the small body a bigger, and warmer sound but still retaining that great Gibson small body midrange punchiness. The setup is low and comfortable and plays great all the way up the neck. The factory installed L.R. Baggs "Element" pickup sounds incredibly natural with a discreet volume control tucked just inside the sound hole. Comes with the original Gibson Acoustics hardshell case, also in good condition.

$1500 shipped to the lower 48.

Custom Travel Case For MT2 Size A Model Mandolin

Photo for Ad 115615

I had this Colorado case built to make jetting around with my mandolin easier. It is as good as it gets for a soft/low profile case, extra padding and insulation, ballistic cordura, some thermal protection. Very comfortable over the shoulder or discreetly attaches to a 22 inch carry-on suitcase. Custom built for the MT2. Nearly new condition. $265, split shipping costs.

Huss & Dalton TDR Pilgrim - Mint

Photo for Ad 115613

I am selling my recently purchased, brand new Huss & Dalton Pilgrim dreadnought. It is their take on Tony Rice’s famous Martin D-28. The Pilgrim is a gorgeous 25.4" scale guitar with the fit and finish of any Collings guitar. It features a premium Thermo-cured Adirondack spruce top and bracing; beautiful East Indian rosewood back and sides; a mahogany soft V shaped neck with a rosewood headstock overlay; 1 23/32” bone nut; Waverly tuners; Ivoroid bound body with herringbone purfling; ebony fretboard and bridge with a cut-through compensated bone saddle with 2 7/32" spacing with a Honduran rosewood bridgeplate; an enlarged 4 3/8" soundhole to increase the trebles and midrange while keeping down any microphone woofing; a deluxe tweed Huss & Dalton case. This guitar basically is in mint condition, even the pickguard, with very little playing time on it. Not even swirling. I thought it would be a keeper but I just bought the same guitar in Brazilian. The Pilgrim is loud, robust, resonant and has excellent tone and playability throughout. This will be a fine guitar for someone who will give it a good home... $3600 plus shipping and PayPal fees. I have additional pictures and will answer any questions concerning this fine guitar.

Davy Stuart Handcrafted Mandolin

Photo for Ad 115612

I've got a lovely mandolin made by Davy Stuart in Christchurch, New Zealand that is just sitting around. I've resisted selling it for a while, but now is the time.

I bought it second-hand, but it appears to be Davy's standard model, which means that it most likely has an Italian spruce top and mahogany back and sides, a mahogany neck with adjustable truss rod, Indian rosewood fingerboard, bone nut and Gotoh mini smooth tuners. It has Davy's cool headstock logo and soundhole rosette. Scale length is 14 inches. It ships in a fitted hard shell case.

It's set up and plays beautifully, with a deep throaty sound that makes it especially nice for Celtic music, which is all I've played on it. Davy's instruments do favor those who use a lighter pick and a lighter attack, though, and that's definitely not me. It has a big resonant sound even when I play it, though.

That's the good news. This is NOT a pristine or collector's instrument. There are several small nicks and dings, as this mandolin has been played. There is also an area on the back where there seems to be some sort of finish defect. It's not visible from the front of the instrument, but it definitely means this is a player's mando.

Per Davy's site, his mandolins start at over $1,000 US, but you can get this played-in and well-loved one for $700. I'll send pics to interested parties. You pay shipping, and I'll cover the Paypal fees with the appropriate donation to the Café on sale. I'm probably not that interested in trades, but you can try your luck. I'd be most interested in Hathway, Arches or other oval-hole mandolins or CBOM, or possibly a Girouard A-style or Bedell dreadnought, with cash coming to you as well. If you have a trade idea, we can discuss it.

Thanks for looking!

1970's Kamaka Baritone Ukulele All Koa

Photo for Ad 115611

This is a custom built white label Kamaka Ukulele built in the mid 1970's by the elder Mr. Kamaka himself. The koa wood is gorgeous with lots of 3D depth and tiger striping. The instrument plays incredibly well. Deep sound and complex overtones for such a small instrument. The custom build aspect that stands out from other Kamaka ukes of this era is the thinner C-shaped neck which is very fast and comfortable. Comes in an excellent case. Shipped and insured for $2000. This is a professional player's ukulele.

Collings MT Gloss Full Jet Black

Photo for Ad 115610

Here's the first totally jet black Collings MT! A very "Spinal Tap" take on the company's entry-level mandolin, it offers more tone per dollar than many instruments that cost twice as much. Impeccably made from figured Maple and a carved Engelmann Spruce top, its tone is bell-like and full--well-suited for everything from bluegrass to world music to ... well ... layering parts on that prog-metal opus you've been working on! Priced with TKL hard case.

$3,330.00

2001 Capek F5

Photo for Ad 115608

Made in 2001 by highly acclaimed Czech builder Rosta Capek. Mr. Capek has been building fine mandolins since 1985 and this F5 is a great example of his work. In overall excellent condition with only a stray ding here and there and some light finish checking/crazing. Very loud and resonant instrument that will stand up to any mandolin available. The tone is mature and seasoned and the setup is very comfortable. No signs of fret wear on the jumbo frets, fully bound with triple binding on top and back, pearl nut, james taipiece, Gotoh tuners. Comes with a hardshell case.

$2,800.00

Apitius Mandolins At IBMA

Photo for Ad 115602

I thought that I would inform Mandolin Cafe members that I will have a display booth for the full 4 days of this year's IBMA show in Raleigh, NC. If you are in the area or plan to attend the show please drop by to say hello.

I will have with me, a "Classic" F-model and a "Yorkville" jazz model mandolin. As my production is extremely limited, this would be a rare chance to try out one of my mandolins in the flesh.

I will also have an assortment of coveted Apitius swag, including men's and women's T-shirts, mandolin blueprints, souvenir picks, my special instrument polish and to add to the fun, temporary tattoos.

*******SHOW SPECIAL********

During the show, anyone who comes by the booth and plays a round of "Cripple Creek" and then utters the secret phrase "I don't want a pickle" will receive their choice of a T-shirt or a set of mandolin blueprints (while supplies last).

So what are you waiting for? Get up out of that puddle you're sitting in and come on down to the IBMA! One of the biggest and best bluegrass events of the year.

We're in booth #307 right beside Bourgeois Guitars.

This mandolin was custom ordered with an upgraded varnish finish. In comparison to the standard nitro finish, varnish is a softer and therefore more flexible which helps to make a more resonate instrument.

With virtually no wear, this 2012 is in excellent condition and comes with the original case.

Rawhide And Other Blistering Banjo Favorite

Photo for Ad 115598

Rawhide and Other Blistering Banjo Favorites (featuring "Hazel Creek," the Murphy Method theme song): Show-off time! Once in a while there comes an occasion when you need to strut your banjo stuff, play as fast as you can, and wow all listeners. (Perhaps after a fiddler has just thrown down the guantlet with “Orange Blossom Special.”) That’s when you open up your bag of tricks and pull out one of these tunes.

“Rawhide” has long been known as a mandolin showpiece but it has a blistering banjo solo. (The bridge also introduces some funky new chord positions.) “Bluegrass Breakdown,” sister to “Foggy Mountain Breakdown,” can also be cranked up to maximum velocity with good effect. The slightly calmer “Theme Time” leaves room for inventiveness or hitting it straight on, while “Hazel Creek,” the song you hear at the beginning of most of our banjo DVDs, starts off slow and then kicks into overdrive.

All of these tunes feature advanced up-the-neck playing, giving your hands and mind quite the workout. When you’re ready to astound or if you’re just feeling frisky, hammer down on one of these. No Tab.

Bluegrass Breakdown, Theme Time, Rawhide, and Hazel Creek. (2 hours)

Gold Tone Ceb-5

Photo for Ad 115597

The 5 string cello banjo, originally used in turn of the century banjo orchestras, has been redefined in this Gold Tone model. Great for classical style, but also may be tuned 1 octave lower in a variety of tunings and played by any banjoist for unique voicings, lead, lines and accompaniments. The 14" body is very loud and the brass tone ring extends its punchy tone. The shortened scale makes fingering easy. It uses nylon high tension classical strings. Includes deluxe archtop hard shell case.

Collings MT Cream Gloss Top, Purfling Ivoroid Binding - UK

Photo for Ad 115596

I like Collings cream top finish so much that I have ordered it for my custom mandola (and being greedy on a Girouard mandola as well). To use one of my favourite Clichés it sounds as good as it looks. Fantastic in all departments, rich, full and well defined in the bass department, sweet and warm in the mids and clear and rich trebles. A mandolin for all occasions and all styles.

This mandolin sounds absolutely fantastic. Life has taken on new priorities and I cannot play anymore. It is absolutely MINT, with the exception of a very small surface mark on the bridge as shown in the pics. I didn't want to try and cover it, but my guess with a small wood stain pencil over the light scratch and it would look brand new again.

The Hoffee case has many surface scratches. Might can be buffed out, but I doubt it. Structurally and functionality is not compromised. No cracks or issues, and all locking latches work great. It just doesn't "look" new, but the protection is still there. You can see the surface scratches in the pics.

Additional pics available upon request.

Mandolin Rims And Necks, Both A And F Style

Photo for Ad 115593

Anyone interested in building their own mandolin ? Let me help you.. I've been making mandolins since 2001 and have offered wood parts for several years now.. I have both A style and F style rims and necks to match.. The rims are made from figured maple with all points installed and kerfing glued.. The necks are figured maple and are 3pc with walnut used as filled.. The channels are in and ears are glued up.. I use these same parts for my BUCKHORN mandolins.. A style rims are $50 F style rims are $60 and necks are $40 for either.. It's not that hard to build a mando when using a good guide and the use of this site.. If this interests anyone , contact me and lets get started.. I've gotten photos of other people's builds and sure makes me proud of other peoples work.......thanks,Keith

For sale: a beautiful pumpkin top a-style mandolin. This little machine is a real tone monster and I'll be sad to see it go. The action and intonation are perfect. Plus it's all original besides the bridge. I can include the bridge that was on it at purchase (which I'm pretty sure isn't original either). Also features a Fishman Nashville Series Archtop Mandolin Pickup, I can ship it with either one on and set up, just let me know. It also has the Original hard shell case, I can ship it in that or a cozier modern hard case, again let me know your preference. There are a couple cosmetic issues, I've attempted to show them in the photos. There is a scar from the mechanism that attaches the pickguard to the body and a crescent scratch on the pickguard.

I'll consider trades for non-mandolin instruments. I have too many mandos.
$1200

We’ll have a booth in the Exhibit Hall at the Raleigh Convention Center with 70+ instruments of all sorts - guitars, banjos, mandolins, resonator guitars as well as strings, picks, tuners, accessories.

Weber River F14-F F-Model Mandolin & Case

A stunningly impressive, contemporary-looking mandolin with that trademark Weber tone. The River F14-F Mandolin features a gloss black Sitka spruce top and quilted maple body and neck.

Northfield Mandolins & Elderly Instruments At IBMA

Photo for Ad 115587

This year, Northfield Mandolins is teaming up with Elderly Instruments and sharing space in their booth at the IBMA World of Bluegrass Conference and Festival. The crew at Northfield is very excited about the instruments we're bringing down to IBMA next week. The talented Chris Beyer and Michael Swartwood will be on hand to answer questions. These instruments go fast, so be sure to get to the Elderly Instruments booth early to check them out. More information on the conference is available here: https://ibma.org/world-of-bluegrass

Here’s some more information from Northfield on the fantastic instruments that will be available:

Artist Series F5
Variation 2
Delicate Wire and Pearl Inlay
#38

Our artist series mandolins are our very best, and we're really hitting our stride with these instruments. A collaboration with Mike Marshall and road tested by nearly every artist we've worked with, this particular example gets its character from the origins of the designs and development devoted to the Artist Series. The very first mandolin like this (Summer 2013) has been with Adam Steffey since before it was even colored. It features two-tonebar "bracing" in a traditional configuration. The Engelmann top provides a warm, if not darker, tone with a "pop" and a response time that makes it a joy to play in any setting. The tonebars are slightly larger than on our five-bar variety, and the instrument is voiced for more headroom and a strong attack. BIG chop for backbeats at the heart of a bluegrass ensemble. The best reference for sound on this type has to be Adam's latest 2 albums -- "Here to Stay" and "Familiar with the Ground" (The Boxcars) -- where he plays the entirety of each album on a mandolin like this.

A5 Special
#4
A unique instrument and a blend of a few Northfield designs. This A5 borrows from our very popular Model M and Artist Series Mandolins to create a powerful response in an elegantly appointed instrument. Limited release.

Specs include:
-Master grade Italian Spruce top
-Master grade figured sugar maple back, sides and neck
-Tone bar braced (2)
-Shaded sunburst
-Spirit Varnish finish
-Gotoh tuners
-Nugget tailpiece
-Made in collaboration between Northfield's Qingdao, China, and Marshall, MI, shops.

Archtop Octave Mandolin
Flamed Maple and Italian Spruce
#34
Our octave mandolin is surging as the most intriguing instrument in our line of mandolins. Extending into the "family" of mandolin instruments, we're very excited about all the interest and great reviews we're receiving. It's the first time we've had one available at the IBMA for immediate sale. This example features figured maple and provides a "punch" in the mids and high end -- great for carving out space in a small ensemble or melodic playing up the fretboard. It really sings! This octave is truly a great accompaniment instrument for that built-in instrument we all have with our voices. With all the singing going on at IBMA we hope it'll inspire beautiful harmonies.

Artist Series
Variation 1
#9
Here's a rare one -- an early 5-bar F5 that we made back towards the beginning of the project. It has traveled the world, on exhibit at shows across the planet. Refurbished a bit and playing and sounding great. Sold in "played in" condition with a few marks from its travels. Equipped with a K&K pickup. Discounted, but with a complete warranty.
Specs:
-Extremely unique single-piece Sugar Maple back.
-Engelmann Top
-5 tone bar configuration
-Spirit Varnish

The Exhibit Hall will be FREE and open to the public 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sept. 29-30 -- just look for the big yellow tent!
