Upcoming Gear

Here you'll find snapshots of all of the instruments coming-up for sale. You can reserve them for "right of first refusal" if you'd like, by contacting me. I will then tag your name under the photo. I have so much here to get around to for repair-and-sale jobs that I'm thinking of rolling into a "fix as you want it" system. Anyhow, let's give it a try!

What an astonishing herd of guitars. I don't know how you do it. Do you put out bait for those things? I have to come and visit some of those guys...

I see you've got some birch guitars coming up (and some gorgeous ones). I know it was a popular wood for smaller body guitars at one time. Does it sound pretty good on a guitar? Can you really tell a difference between it and maple or other woods?
Unknown said…
Wow,what a fantastic collection of guitars.

Hi, great shop you have! I was wondering if you have already a price range in mind for the LG-2.

Thank you!
