Hoffee "Air" Dreadnaught Guitar Case / Free Delivery

Photo for Ad 112473

Just in, the newest addition to the Hoffee carbon fiber case lineup.... the Hoffee "Air" dreadnought guitar case. Built of the same tough carbon fiber composite as all Hoffee cases, the new "Air" model has a tough opaque finish, with a carbon fiber weave texture. The new, more durable, exterior finish will maintain its' great looks, while holding up better to everyday scratches and dings.

Inside, there's a new cushioning system; four medical-grade upholstered airbags are located on the sides of the case and can be inflated/deflated using a self-contained bulb pump (see the Hoffee website). This inflatable cushioning allows the case user to customize the fit for any maker's dreadnought-sized guitar. The interior can be adjusted to fit other guitars as well, including: slope-shoulder dreads, J-45 and most OM-size guitars. Built on Hoffee's medium size body, the case will readily accommodate dreadnought and similar guitars up to 41" in overall length. Empty, the case will weigh-in at approximately eleven pounds.

As Hoffee production ramps up, we'll be able to stock the "Air" cases in most of the expected Hoffee exterior colors (all opaque) and the case buyer can specify any interior color they want, as long as it's black. Currently, we have a Red w/Black Lining case available at $800.00; FREE DELIVERY in the CONUS on in-stock cases.

1962 Martin Style A

Photo for Ad 112471

Great looking, sounding, and playing Martin in incredible condition. We have never seen one that looks this clean. Being from 1962 it does have a stray mark or two but you have to look it over pretty hard to find them. The sound is dry, snappy, and woody. Very unique to these mandolins, very sweet sound, and with a shocking amount of volume. Comes with a very nice oblong hardshell case.

1969 Martin D-35

Photo for Ad 112470

A fine sounding example of a 1969 Martin D-35, featuring Brazilian rosewood on the three piece back & sides (Martin transitioned to Indian rosewood from 1969-70), and a beautiful aged spruce top. Original hardware present including tuners, bridge. Pickguard has been replaced (original guard present in case-pocket). A few solid repairs are present: B-String "pickguard" crack, treble-side cracks, upper bout top near fretboard. Finish is worn on peghead overlay beneath two E string tuner shafts; perhaps the work of a naugahyde guitar strap.

Included in sale is a later Martin hardcase.

Improvising: The First Stage

Photo for Ad 112462

Improvising: The First Stage: Alrighty now! You’ve been playing banjo for a couple of years, and you want to cross that scary bridge into improvising. You’ve learned your tunes by ear, you’ve learned your chords, and you are ready. Now what? How do you begin? Never fear! We will guide you! We will show you how to use licks you already know to play songs you don’t know. You apply these licks to the chord pattern of the song, and voila! You are playing the song. Each of these songs builds on the one before it. A tried and true method used successfully by many of our students. The songs and licks are easy, but don’t try to move too fast. You need time to digest the differences. No Tab.

The Loar LM-370 Mandolin

Photo for Ad 112461

Players will immediately respond to the classic "chop" only a quality mandolin can deliver. We've hand-carved the spruce tops to optimize each instrument's individual character, and the thin "V" profile of the maple neck fits comfortably in the player's hand. Our removal of the fretboard extension beyond the 20th fret allows for easy strumming without the classic problem of getting hung up on the extended upper frets.

MODEL: LM-370 GRASSROOTS SERIES
TOP: SOLID HAND-CARVED SPRUCE
BACK & SIDES MAPLE
NECK: MAPLE
FRETBOARD: ROSEWOOD
HEADSTOCK INLAY: "THE LOAR" GOLD DECAL
FINISH TYPE: MATTE
FINISH OPTIONS: VINTAGE SUNBURST
TUNING MACHINES: GROVER 309FVN
SCALE LENGTH: 13-29/32"
TRUSS ROD: ADJUSTABLE

BODY LENGTH: 12-3/4"
TOTAL LENGTH: 27-1/4"

Grassroots Series mandolins are finished with Grover tuners, D'Addario strings and our unique "Harp" logo headstock decal. Whether for traditional bluegrass or more modern styles, our new Grassroots Series delivers the tone, style and vibe today's mandolin players want from their instruments.

Used Loar LM-520Vs F-Style Mandolin

Photo for Ad 112460

Great beginner mandolin with load of features found only on more expensive mandolins. The LM-520 features a hand-carved, fully graduated spruce top. The solid maple back is also hand-carved, and the solid maple sides complete the all-solid package. The maple neck with a rounded “V” profile and a rosewood fretboard. Compensated adjustable ebony bridge and high quality vintage-style Grover tuning machines. Very nice condition and includes a hardshell case.

2004 Gibson F5G Custom Wide Neck

Photo for Ad 112459

A beautiful F5 with a very strong woody tonal character and a lot of volume. The setup is low and comfortable with room to adjust the bridge in either direction. In excellent condition with only the slightest signs of wear. Like the Gibson Sam Bush model, the nut width on this one is 1-1/4", which is 1/16" wider than most "wide neck" mandolins. Comes with a hardshell case.

Looking For Neck For A Tacoma Mandolin

No image has been uploaded

Owner: Upload photo

I was given a Tacoma M3 (sunburst) mandolin. The body is very good but the neck is beyond repair. I am looking for a replacement (bolt on) Tacoma neck! Perhaps you have a Tacoma mando with a smashed body or simply have a neck to sell. Sunburst or dark finish is preferred but not essential. I don't really need the tuners either. Thanks!

This Danny Roberts signed (Derrington era) mandolin is sure to make someone happy. It's got a dry, focused, old tone. Plays effortlessly and comes in the original rectangular case. $13,500 plus shipping.

I'd consider trades for an Octave mandolin, or Mandola. I need at least $5,000 coming my way in any trade deal.

2006 Nashville Guitar Company Dreadnought

Photo for Ad 112453

2006 NGC dreadnought made by the wonderful builder Marty Lanham of Nashville, TN. I'm the original owner of this fine guitar, but it's not getting played as much as it use to, so hopefully someone can give it the attention and play time it deserves.

Specs:

-Mahogany back and sides. Tortois-oid body binding.
-Adirondack spruce shade top (sourced by John Arnold).
-1 & 3/4 inch nut width.  
- 2 & 5/8 inch string spacing with thru saddle.
- Bone nut & saddle.
- Ebony bridge with ebony bridge pins (dots).
- Unbound 14 fret ebony fretboard with only side position markers.
- Modified V neck shape (my best description, but VERY COMFORTABLE).
- Diamond volute.
- Waverly tuners.
- Ebony strap button (installed by Marty).
- K&K pure mini pickup (installed by Marty).
- 1/8 inch ebony end-pin jack (installed by Marty).

The action is at the 12th fret:
Low E = 7/64 inch
High E = 3/32 inch

There are no cracks or significant scratches on this guitar. No real belt buckle rash or finish wear on back of neck. I do see some surface marks on the lower side of guitar (treble side), that may have come from sitting on guitar stand, but they are not serious and don't go through the finish. Only one very tiny scratch on top near lower bout binding, but that's about it.

Frets are in very good shape with only little wear under B string at frets 2, 3 and 4...but does not affect playability....they have a lot of life left.

I'd classify the condition as very good to excellent. I've played the guitar a lot in the past, so it has that "played-in" sound and feel, but no abuse.

A very responsive, well balanced guitar with tone to spare. A great instrument from a single-bench master builder. (If you don't know about Marty, you should).

Comes with TKL hardshell case and the 1/8 inch connector cable to use with K&K system (no preamp included).

$4300. No trades please. CONUS only sale. Will split shipping to buyer, buyer to pay return shipping (but you won't be disappointed).

Contact me for more pics or to discuss.

2008 Beard E Model Flame Maple Squareneck Resophonic Guitar

A. A. Farland Black Beauty 5 String Banjo, Circa 1915

Photo for Ad 112452

A. A. Farland Black Beauty Model 5 String Banjo, c. 1915, made in Plainfield , New Jersey, black varnish finish, maple rim, poplar neck.

A.A. Farland, A celebrated banjo virtuoso of the late 19th and early 20th century, didn't care for those new-fangled tone rings banjo makers of his era were using on their high-grade instruments-- he thought they sounded "too tinny!" He also abhorred spun-over metal rims, like those on S.S. Stewart's banjos, for the same reason. Farland preferred a plain wooden rim with no metal at all and so designed and patented his own banjos with no tone ring whatsoever - just a wood rim sloped away from the outer edge. He called it the "A.A. Farland Beveled Top Wood Rim Banjo", putting a label inside to that effect with his picture in the center. As he was primarily a teacher and performer he didn't actually build the instruments bearing his name-though he may have had them assembled at his studio in Plainfield- but subcontracted with the best builders of the day. This particular example uses components almost certainly made by New York's Rettberg and Lange, and shares many family traits with their more common Orpheum banjos.

The "Black Beauty" was one of Farland's rare budget models-most Farland instruments are actually higher-end performer-grade models. Intended as a student-grade model, it is built with simple hardware on a plain black lacquered neck and rim, with Farland's beveled rim and proprietary mute system. There is a delicate pearl inlay in the headstock. A beautiful delicate metal tailpiece marked A.A.F. Pat. And a label on the dowel stick reading "Black Beauty, A.A. Farland manufacturer Plainview NJ. While this particular example is very clean it is not a great playing instrument, but it is a neat piece of banjo history.

Overall length is 37 in. (94 cm.), 11 in. (27.9 cm.) diameter head, and 2 3/4 in. (7 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 intresting banjo is in extremely fine cosmetic condition, showing very little wear for a 100 year old instrument. The finish has some light dings but both the black lacquer and the nickel plating are still shiny and clean looking. All the hardware is original and intact except some of the moving parts of the elaborate mute system are missing, so the mute is not functional. The neck is made of extremely light wood with a very thin fingerboard and shows a fairly significant bow that is not easily correctable without altering the instrument seriously.

In view of the rarity of this banjo we have elected to leave it as it stands in its original state. The banjo is currently strung with NylGut classical banjo strings and is playable in a minstrel or frailing style with the action set at 3/16" at the 12th fret-it actually sounds quite good with a predictable woody tone. While we usually repair instruments to optimum playability, in this case we are offering this banjo As-Is due to its historic value. Unrestored. Overall Excellent Historic Condition.
