Corbin 2009 Flamed Koa Dreadnought Excellent plus condition - Carpathian Spruce top with medium grain, highly flamed Koa back, sides and peghead overlay, Mahogany neck, varnish finish with French polish top, Ebony bridge & fingerboard, 1 ¾’’ nut width, Tortoise grain body binding, Dalmatian pickguard, Gold Waverly tuners with Ebony buttons and bone nut & saddle. Corbin guitars are hard to find to say the least and with a long waiting period it’s no wonder that this is a rare bird. Plenty of power with lots of headroom along with seasoned old sounding tone, wonderful sustain & balance. Appearance wise it looks played very little but sound wise it emits many years. An excellent sounding, looking and playing instrument. For those that are not aware, Mitch trained under great builder Lynn Dudenbostel. Priced with OHC.

Martin 1939 D-18 Excellent condition - Early 1939 expertly refinished by Andy Todd with a slight antiqued look, 1 ¾’’ nut width, Adirondack Spruce top, newer correct bridge plate, neckset, older refret, newer correct Ebony bridge, original tortoise grain pickguard, small inside cleat for back that is not through and two small patches added to top around top of rosette. This beast is rock-solid with no top cracks and dry as a bone with deep rich bottom end, very “punchy” midrange and crystal clear & mellow high end. Give a listen as Master Kenny Smith plays it on this page and hear the pure vintage tone and power this outstanding box contains. Looks ancient, sounds ancient, light as a piece of paper and plays like a dream. BIG SOUND. Comes with older heavy duty hard case.

2009 New Era Prairie State Style 4 GuitarExcellent condition - Upgraded 18’’ body, beautiful flamed Cherry back & sides, insane wide grain Adirondack Spruce top with vintage Amber finish, bound body B/W/B/W/B purfling, bound Ebony fingerboard with large block Pearl inlay, Abalone position markers, large vintage style Tortes pickguard, star inlayed Ebony bridge, 1 ¾’’ nut width, three piece Mahogany neck with center Rosewood strip, Pearl & Vine headstock inlay, Waverly oval button tuners and 25.5 scale. Huge booming power with deep soft tone. For those that were unaware that Cherry is a serious “tone wood” on an acoustic guitar, here is a great example. Large low end response that can be felt to your toes, direct midrange that connects in an instant and high end that softly exposes itself in a firm way. Hats off to Tony Klassen for his wonderful recreations of the Larson’s originals as this specimen is outstanding. This instrument shows very little playing wear and a new one like this is considerably more money and the wait is substantial. Priced with vintage style case.
