Martin 1941 D-18 Mahogany Dreadnought Very good condition - Adirondack Spruce top, backward shifted scalloped bracing, 1 11/16'' nut width, old overspray top, replaced bridge and correct Maple bridge plate, new saddle, replaced Waverly oval tuners and slight hairline crack on back of headstock that has no structure value. All repairs professionally done and the overall sound is extremely strong. Very loud, dry warm and woody tone, responds as it should, plays wonderfully because of the recent neck set and is ready for the next 75 years of that ancient tone to flow out. Want that old Bluegrass & old Country tone, then this is your guitar. Comes with old hard case.

Gibson 1934 F-7 Mandolin Excellent plus condition - This is the cleanest F-7 we have ever encountered and is all original with possibly the bridge being the exception. It shows very little playing wear and even the pickguard is intact with no issues. The sunburst finish is smooth with just a few checks that are hardly visible. Conforms to 1934 catalog specs with Spruce top, highly figured Chocolate brown finish Maple back & sides, Mahogany neck, single bound body, neck, pickguard and peghead, Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard with fancy inlay similar to Nick Lucas guitar and Fleur-De-Lis headstock inlay. Beautiful warm open tone with impressive power, clarity along with a serious chop at any position, and the more it is played, the more it opens up. Made between 1934 thru 1939 and is the same model Bill Monroe used until he bought his fabled 1923 F-5 in 1945. Rarer than a Loar, these do not show up very often and one in this condition is even a rarer find. Comes with original red lined formed fit hard case with some case candy.
