2017 Martin OM-18 Authentic Vts

Photo for Ad 128062

Here is a fantastic like new Martin OM-18 Authentic model in Near Mint condition. Only about two dozen hours play time on this since new. Beautifully made instrument built very lightly and was modeled after an original 1933 OM-18. Nice neck with a fairly beefy light V shape. 1 3/4" nut. Gorgeous very thin sunburst finish on this. These guitars have an ebony bar like the originals instead of a metal truss rod. Martin's VTS system gives it a warm vintage tone right out of the box. Adirondack top with mahogany back and sides. You can read rave reviews and videos for this model on the web. Even the Harptone case is very special with a real vintage vibe to it. I would love to keep it but I am a gigging musician and this guitar is just too nice to get beat up gigging. My loss will be someones gain. Killer guitar. The street price for a new one is $5,229. My price is $3,700 plus $95 FedEx Ground shipping in the Cont. US. Please email any questions.

2018 Argentine Grey Distressed F Silverangel

Photo for Ad 128053

Just off the bench, a nice distressed MAX F. Has all the distressing. Haven't done a distressed model for a while, this one was fun. Looks very old and played. The top is Italian spruce and X braced with redwood. The back is two piece sugar maple. Radius ebony fretboard, large frets, double action truss rod, cast tailpiece GA tuners. This one is my grey color, different from most. If you are weak hearted and faint, then pass on by, this one is distressed to the Max. The sound is punchy with ample low end and strong mids and trebles. priced to sell at $3500 case and shipping too. Trial period of 2 days or two minutes, whichever you need. Gladly send more pics.

1997 Martin D-28

Photo for Ad 128052

1997 Martin D-28 with some dings and player wear but the guitar is 100% crack free, with no prior repairs and none needed. It just received an extensive professional setup including a full fret dressing as well as returning the guitar to Martin factory specifications with regard to action, nut action, and neck relief. It plays wonderfully up and down the neck and has that great signature deep Martin D-28 tone. This guitar is outfitted with the Fishman Ellipse Matrix Blend pickup system which allows the player to switch between, or blend, a high quality internal microphone and an under saddle bridge pickup. It's an extremely natural sounding pickup system with a lot of flexibility to adjust to whatever sound system that you are playing it through at the moment. A great gig ready guitar. Comes with it's original Martin ABS hardshell case with some scuffing but is not damaged in any way and is 100% functional.

This mandolin has an incredible voice and plays like a dream. There is a clip of Sharon Gilchrist playing it on an interview I did with Peghead Nation, so you can hear for yourself and learn a little more about me and my experience in Lutherie. I finished this mandolin in August of 2017 but have been keeping her hostage so I have a mandolin to display at shows - recently wetsanded and buffed her all over again so finish is like new. More detail photos can be found on my website under "Available Instruments" on the "Collection" page. I've been too busy with guitars this year so I hadn't had the chance to build another mandolin, but I have a few in the works so it's time to find this one a home! Feel free to contact with any questions.

1927 Gibson F-4 Mandolin

Photo for Ad 128040

According to "Spann's Guide to Gibson 1902-1941" the FON # for this Gibson F4 dates the start date for the build to 1926. The serial number, which is basically the ship date, denotes early 1928. Therefore I am using 1927 as the relative build date.

Either way, 1926,1927, or 1928, this is a nice post-Loar F4. Beautiful to see, nice woody tone, chop, pop, and plenty of volume to cut through the mix. I also had a 1923 F-4 and as nice as it was tonally, this 1927 has more power, depth, and clarity. It's new set of Gibson Bill Monroe .11's really make it sing.

As most mando lovers know, although Loyd Loar did not hands-on build mandolins for Gibson, he made revolutionary changes and improvements as well as supervised the shop from 1919-1924. Most likely the same craftsmen that worked under his supervision also worked on building this mandolin.

The pick guard is marked "pat.mar.30.09. The bridge is marked "pat.Jan18.21. The case is the original case and is in good condition with only a few surface tolex repairs here and there. As far as I can detect, although I am not an expert, all parts other than strings are original!

There are no cracks or repairs. There is light honest play wear as befits a great sounding vintage mando that has reached it's 90th birthday. The color is deep and rich with an eye-catching patina and glow.

Frets 1 to 4 have some light grooving (photo available) that can be detected with a magnifier or very sharp eye. I am a competent player of fretted instruments in general and for me the neck frets, or better, plays comfortably and fast enough for me. Frets 1-7 may be able to handle one more round of being lightly dressed sometime in the future, but clearly, after that, the new owner may want to, at minimum, have frets 1-7 replaced.

The binding has varnish wear in some areas, especially where a strap or sleeve probably wore the varnish coating down on just the binding not the wood (photo available). This is a cosmetic issue and could be easily touched up. The binding itself is fine.

The original tuners are functional, have been lightly lubricated, but two tuners take a good strong grip to turn when strings are under tension.

A great opportunity to acquire an advanced level 1920's Gibson mandolin.

Plenty of photos available by request.

$ 5425. plus ship (UPS Ground insured).
I always ship promptly and carefully via UPS Ground.

2018 James Bernabe F-Style Mandolin

Photo for Ad 128039

1 1/8 inch nut, Adirondack top, maple back & sides, parellel tone bar bracing in mint/excellent condition. Just returned from Nashville yesterday and compared my Bernabe against the top-end mandos in town. I found a couple of instruments that equaled it in volume and POP but none that were better, only a difference in mid-range/treble against more low-end. Nothing that warranted me spending all the extra "Do Re Mi" as Woody would say. Only reason I am selling it is I thought I could get used to the 1 1/8th nut, but I need a 1 3/16th wide nut.

Price: $485.00

This Kentucky A-Style mandolin offers professional grade appointments at a nice low price point. It features a solid carved German spruce top with parallel tone bar bracing for that clean, articulate tone. The back and sides are solid carved Alpine maple. This comes in a traditional sunburst lacquer finish. Case options are available for an additional price.

Vega Banjos - 1924 Whyte Laydie Plectrum 5-String Conversion

Photo for Ad 128036

This used Vega Banjos - Whyte Laddie Plectrum 5-String Conversion circa 1924 is a fantastic example of how a 5-string conversion can bring life to a vintage instrument. Originally built as a 4-string No. 2 Plectrum banjo, this White Laydie tone ring and 11 15/16" pot were converted to a 5-string by luthier W.A. Petersen around 2007. With a Maple pot, and Flamed Maple neck this skin head banjo is a wonderful frailing/clawhammer machine that we can't seem to put down. Included original Plectrum neck (see photos) and non-original Hardshell case. Serial# 57625

$1,750.00

A Styles- You Finish As You Like-Reduced

Photo for Ad 128034

I have two A style, unfinished mandolins for sale. Most of the work is done, just finish and add the hardware. Both have figured maple back, sides, and neck. The pegheads are bound but nothing else is. One has a cedar top and the other has a douglas fir top. All parts were made by me in my own shop. I am asking $550 for either and I will cover cost of shipping. Here is a chance to have a top quality mando and do some of the work yourself, and save lots of money. They are made from LOAR prints as close as possible. If interested, please contact me for more information. thanks, Keith

Deluxe Encyclopedia Of Mandolin Chords

Photo for Ad 128033

This encyclopedia is designed to provide mandolin players with a wide variety of chords in different voicings. This book is intended as both a starting point of learning chord voicings and patterns, as well as a dictionary of common mandolin chords. Each key section includes the first position scale for that key, as well as the chord formula and notes for each chord. If you want to learn to be a bluegrass rhythm player it helps to have a guide or "map"to take you through the initial learning stage. This book provides a small but powerful set of starter chords used in this style of music. Once these chords are learned, you'll be able to jam with other musicians in no time. These are the same chords used by greats like Bill Monroe, Doyle Lawson, David Grisman and hundreds of other bluegrass players in this genre. While there are only a few chords presented in the "map" section, they form the foundation of bluegrass mandolin and with them you can play literally thousands of songs in every key. Chords are presented by key.
