042812E

Small body, 14-fret arch top in birch/birch with f-holes, burst finish and crazy sound.

042812F

This guitar sounds like a banjo. It must be the combination of woods, body configuration, scale and duende dust 'cause guitars aren't supposed to sound like banjos. It dates from the 60's and probably had a little too much weed back then to maintain it's given voice . . .

Regal 0-size, 12-fret with nouveau-grunge finish, fantastic tone and playability

042812I

Vintage Harmony 00- slothead, wide neck, well built, great tone

042812L

Harmony put out lots of different style "Folk" guitars in the 60's. Some combined the look and feel of a classical guitar but had steel strings ... like this one.

60's Terz parlor in birch/birch, maple fretboard, old timey sound

This is a fun, terz size guitar by Regal from the 60's. At 33" tall and 22 1/4" scale, it is tuned to G-G as its standard tuning(instead of E-E). Like capoing at the 3rd fret, you can play and sing in the first position without a capo . . .

40's Regal 000-, 14-fret, spruce/birch, reverse-archtop prototype

042812N

When I have too much time on my hands, I horse around with things I shouldn't. I took a perfectly good arch top guitar and converted to a flat top. Well, almost a flat top. What I had not factored into the conversion was that the sides of an arch top are shaped differently than your standard flat top . . .

Vintage Regal 0-size, 12-fret with X-braced spruce top, nice bluesy tone

I have quite a few Regals in stock and for good reason. They are well made, nicely proportioned and sound great with a pro setup. This little beauty is no exception.

1930's Supertone 12-fret parlor in X-braced spruce/birch, slothead, blues master

This guitar is the "creme de la creme" for an early blues guitar. It's so pretty, so playable and sounds so good that I have nothing else in stock that can match it.

1934 Harmony 00-, 12-fret with pearloid fretboard, spruce top and mucho tone

042812R

The combination of woods, embellishments and design features on this guitar is uncommon for a factory built flat top from this period. Date stamped 1934, this 00- shows features more in keeping with top shelf models of the day. Yeah, I replaced the bridge and helped her sound better than she did, but this guitar is really special . . .

Vintage Kay 00-, slothead, 1 3/4" nut, great blues guitar

042812S

Here's another nice Kay-made 00-, this one with a 1 3/4" nut width and very playable neck. The top burst pattern is a bit spare, compared to some, but not the tone. this little gal really rings. I like this guitar for both fingerstyle or strumming. It has nice action and she's not so hard on the eyes either. . . .

042812S

Vintage Harmony Parlor, slotted headstock, rosewood bridge, natural blues

042812T

This little guitar is only 40 years old, which is way newer than I typically seek out. If it weren't for the great condition, incredible tone and classic parlor proportions, I would have passed on it. I didn't . . .

1940's Harmony model 610, solid spruce top/birch sides & back, excellent condition

042812U

Harmony's 610 model evolved over time from the original "Round Up" version of the 1930's to the "Melody Ranch" version of the 40's and 50's. Beings the singing cowboy that he was, Mr. Autry rode into the sunset from more than a few cowboy-themed bedrooms back in the day . . .

This Harmony model has many features that today's player seeks out in an all-around vintage small body: Solid woods, 12-fret neck, nice setup, fine tone and a fine fingerstyle player with wide string spacing at the saddle.

042812V

40's vintage Harmony RICHTER 00-size, 14-fret, complete with &pompadour" style headstock and amazing voice.

042812W

I can't decide whether the headstock on this guitar reminds me more of the hairdo on Elvis or Foghorn Leghorn, the cartoon rooster. Regardless, this guitar has a deep voice, wonderful range and is really fun to play. This is another addition to the vintage 00-size guitars that I'm stocking this time around. There's plenty to choose from so don't be shy . . .

Powerful 000-size, 12-fret in spruce/figured koa with booming voice and fine playability

042812X

This baby is no baby. This is an anonymous handbuilt that I couldn't pass up. This guitar looks fantastic, plays easy and sounds incredible. Designed like a slope-shouldered dred, this 15" wide X 4 3/4" deep body really pushes out the sound. The short scale makes playing easy and the eye candy gets thrown in for free. . . .

C. 1910 J.F. Stratton, Harp-brand parlor, x-braced spruce/brazilian rosewood, rare gem

042812AA

I don't offer allot of high(er) end guitars by design. I'm committed to serving the working man by offering quality vintage small bodies at fair prices. Sometimes, I stretch the rules a bit and this is one of those times. I came across this 100+ year old beauty and couldn't resist. This guitar is not only visually appealing but also has the original x-bracing that was just coming into vogue around the time of its construction . . .

Mid-century Regal 0-size, 12-fret in solid birch, all boned up and ready to blues

042812BB

I love these old Regals. They are truly the working man's small body. The Regal body design is more "curvy" than a Harmony design from the same period and, to me, more attractive. Looks aside, this old gal plays and sounds great. I've been meaning to add more guitars with floating bridge and tailpieces to my inventory. I have about four of this model listed this time around . . .
