Martin 2006 D-28 1937 "Golden Era" Limited Edition Brazilian

Near mint - This is one of the finest sounding modern day Martin guitars we have encountered. Deep, warm, fat and loose with great delivery and response. We compared it with a new D-28 Authentic which is around 40K, that we could tell very little difference. Both were full of life and that vintage tone that reminds us of that " Golden Era" mid 30's sound. Adirondack Spruce top that starts tight in the middle and flares to wide grain at the bouts , Adirondack forward shifted scalloped braces, Ebony fingerboard with diamond & squares inlay, fossil Ivory thru saddle, (1 3/4'') nut, bridge pins with black inserts, modified "V" Mahogany neck, grained Ivoroid body binding, Herringbone top trim, "C.F. Martin stamped on back of squared headstock, old growth medium color quartered Brazilian Rosewood back & sides with dark streaks in the center, Brazilian Rosewood headstock overlay, Waverly "Butterbean" tuners, Ebony traditional bridge, Delmar pickguard and top aging toner. This instrument looks almost un-played as there may be a couple of scratches on the pickguard and it still has the hang. Only 600 were made and you don't find many for sale especially in this condition as it is certainly a rare find. Comes with original hard case with green crushed velvet inside.

Ellis 2007 #100 "Birds Eye" Special Deluxe F-5

Excellent condition - To celebrate his 100th instrument, Tom Ellis came up with some "special" tone woods to commemorate this event and he came thru with this stunning example. Beautiful no doubt about that with that figured "birds eye" back & sides, exquisite grain Adirondack top, highly flamed Maple neck with French polish, "Flern" headstock inlay, triple bound body, neck and peghead, 1 1/8'' FWI nut width, traditional Ebony bridge, Ebony abbreviated fingerboard, James tailpiece with "Ellis" logo, handmade Ebony pickguard, black Pearl truss rod cover, varnish finish and Waverly tuners with Pearl buttons. The sound? Woody, open, airy, vibrant, deep, warm, smooth, balanced, dry and powerful. Another way of phrasing this is that, an Ellis just doesn't get much better than this. Priced with square hard case.

Collings CW Cocobolo

New - Beautiful quartered straight grain brick red Cocobolo Rosewood back & sides with the sides having a half-tone even look with plenty of black streaking everywhere. Very close in appearance to BRW but more importantly, it very closely sounds much like past Collings BRW we have had. People who saw and played this outrageous box, thought it was Brazilian. This is a complete sounding Collings with tremendous power, but also contains a warmth and dryness that delivers a special overall sound that really fills the room. In our opinion, we find this to be a "special" Winfield model. This also has an absolute fabulous Adirondack top with medium wide grain that stretches the whole top and inclusive Adirondack braces, no tongue brace, enlarged soundhole, 1 23/32'' nut width, bound Ebony fingerboard with no inlay, traditional Ebony bridge, thru saddle, Waverly "Butterbean" tuners, Herringbone top trim, Ebony peghead overlay and for more of a traditional look, this one has a Tortoise grain pickguard. For those looking for something more complete that a IRW, with power, warmth, balance and response, then this may be the instrument as we find this one a little "special." Priced with deluxe hard case.
