1930s LYRA brand 12-fret parlor, ladder braced solid birch, 1 13/16” nut, 2 5/16” string spacing, great for blues players

032718A

The LYRA brand was one of a few “Plain Jane” models produced by the Oscar Schmidt factory during the 1930s. There’s not allot of bling but it makes up for it in playability and bluesy tone. This example had a complete rebuild and really shines. Affordably priced for the working man.

60’s Harmony 000-size, 12-fret in ladder braced solid birch, hair over 1 3/4” nut, 2 3/8” string spacing, fun to play and pretty to look at

032718B

I’m not usually a 000-body size kind-of-guy but this example dropped in my lap and I couldn’t pass up how sweet it felt when we first met. The size offers ample projection and the solid birch body sounds way more full and resonant than you’d expect from a birch body guitar. About 50 years young, this is a good value for an American made guitar.

1941 Kalamazoo KG-14 in ladder braced solid spruce over solid mahogany, 1 3/4” nut, 2 3/8” string spacing, mojo-central inside and out

122117A

The Kalamazoo brand was made by Gibson in the late 1930s and early 1940s as a budget priced alternative to their 00-series. This example had seen some hard times over the years but a fresh rebuild has done wonders to the structure, tone and playability. Battle scars aside, this is a great value for Gibson made flat top from this period.

Shopbuilt 00-Deep Body, 12-fret in X-braced solid spruce over solid e.i. rosewood, 1 7/8” nut, 2 5/16” string spacing, deep-rich-resonant fingerstyle guitar

122117B

I set out to produce a mid-size fingerstyle guitar with a deep body for increased acoustic tone and projection. This guitar was assembled from my stock of aged spruce and rosewood with a new/old stock mahogany “V” neck that’s at least 60 years old added to the mix. The Martin 00-size body mold delivers classic proportions regardless of tone woods but this example ended being one of my best blends of old and new.

Shopbuilt 0-size, 14-fret in X-braced spruce over E.I. rosewood, 1 3/4” nut, 2 3/8” string spacing, doesn’t come much better than this

051117C

I built this guitar two years ago and recently took it back on consignment. The guitar has really opened up nicely since its first string set. The seasoned spruce top is gem and the rosewood is rich in hue and superior in tone delivery. Ships in fitted Guardian hardcase.

c. 1942 Harmony “Roundup” 000-size 14-fret in X-bracing spruce over birch, 1 3/4” nut, super scarce and sassy vintage guitar

041417A

Harmony started producing the larger body “Roundup” models after 1939. This example has numbers inkstamped to the back that might link it to 1942 although I can’t be 100% certain. The look is classic, the feel is smooth and the tone is sassy and bold. Great example of a pre-war mid-size acoustic.
